平日有英文導覽，假日特別有華語導覽，個人不能預約只能在開始前半小時在門口排隊購票，沒想到參加的人還真多，導覽人員由大廳、天井到二樓，詳細說明主人的歷史背景與建築風格與後續的古蹟修復，非常推薦參加！ more »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!
