An East meets West type of building, it is a museum and a hotel as well, you need to pay entrance fee for a visit and it comes with a tour guide, tourist can choose from an English version tour or a mandarin version tour. The mansion is all about Chinese feng shui with western grandeur element, an enriching experience.

At 11:30, 1:30, 3:30 a tour is offered to see part of the interior of the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, also known as the "Blue Mansion". The New York Times dubbed Cheong Fatt Tze the "Rockefeller of the East" because he had amassed great wealth despite a modest upbringing. This is his mansion.

Most exceptional location, fantastic historic background, remarkable restoration effort - you will find yourself in as an authentic setting as you can think of. Most Excellent Project UNESCO Asia Pacific Heritage Awards 2000 - no joke, experience truly deserving your attention.
Pick any of the rooms, so richly evocative of the complex heritage South East Asia and Far East - Batavia, Fragrant Poem, Jolie, Hakka, Nanyang, Sinkeh, Peony, Towkay - and get lost in time, in thoughts, in mirth...

This is a unique opportunity to stay at a UNESCO-recognized heritage property. Everything about the building is lovely and, as a guest, you have the opportunity to take photographs and soak in the atmosophere at leisure. CFT is an excellent value and is in a prime location for enjoying Georgetown as it is one of the major sites in the city.

The only problems with the facility are the bathrooms (not surprisingly, they are old) and the service. Some of the staff seem quite happy to share the property with visitors. Others appeared to be annoyed by intruding guests. Although wireless internet service is available it cuts out frequenty and is only available in shared areas. Dining facilities and room service are not available (accept for breakfast).

My room was a bit noisy.
