  • Weekday there are English, holidays special, people can not only be in the first half of the opening time in the mouth of the ticket, did not think that the number of people added is really many, people from the big, patio to two, to explain the owner's historical background after the building of the ancient practice, very push!

  • We stayed here 3 nights in the Scholar room (this hotel only have 18 rooms which have different name) unfortunately our room is so close to the food court and a new nightclub where the music on nightly (hotel provides earplugs for the guests in room). Soon after the check in, you feel like traveling back in time, the beautiful restoration to its glorious day with modern amenities, in room safe, iron/board ,comfy bed, clean, coffee machine with pods and complementary fruits, biscuits and juices every day. The staffs are very attentive and helpful. Highly recommended
  • The Blue Mansion is a perfect combination of history and high level custom service. The building is gorgeous, like something out of a movie really, and the service personal and extremely high quality. We'll definitely come back!
  • Very helpful staff, freindly and kind. Rooms very comfortable and well appointed. Breakfasts very good with good range of dishes. Restaurant food excellent but a little pricey . Position of hotel good for exploring old town . The tour of the house most informative
  • Beautiful hotel with nice staff. Amazing to stay here as you can really enjoy it especially when it's quiet. It's a gorgeous historical building. Breakfast is awesome as well. Would definitely return again, but just note it seemed a bit quieter at night on weekdays vs weekends
  • Awesome hotel! Beautifully restored building with great lively atmosphere. Peaceful oasis in the city
