East Indies Mansion (GPS: 5.417001, 100.340646) is a boutique hotel along China Street in George Town, Penang. It is at 25 China Street, a double-storey Southern Chinese courtyard mansion. The building is purportedly the oldest extant structure along China Street, and is said to have been one of the properties belonging to Koh Lay Huan, the first Kapitan China of Penang, who arrived to meet Captain Francis Light the very next day after Light came to shore on Penang Island.
East Indies Mansion has since been converted to provide luxurious accommodation to visitors. There are seven rooms spread across this mansion.
