"Loovvvvvve the decor"
I love this place! The hotel is beautifully decorated, mirrors strategically placed give an illusion and paper lanterns in various shapes are funky. This hotel has a modern edgy spin to it with a bird cage in the shower to give you the sense of connecting with nature. Further, there are mixes of textures of silk, leather and an industrial floor that is quite nice, dimmed lighting sets a relaxing mood, doors close by a wooden latch. There were complimentary snacks, the room was perfect except for the hard bed and various smells throughout the day, (they had oil scents in the main lobby, they may consider that within the rooms). Staff were super friendly and very helpful, except for one lady at the front desk I would give the staff a score of 4.75 if I could. Wifi is free. They also have excellent literature with maps leading back to the hotel and other tourist attractions. I would stay here again

"Lovely place but uncomfortable w/ tour overcharge"
Hotel was good but overcharged for tour service and Airport transfer service. If you want reasonable price just go to Khao San Road.There are a lot of travel agency and the price is like even less than half of hotel's.

"amazing place"
probably not being from Asia this hotel strike me even more. but i loved it. the style, the details, a pretty different option, friendly staff, extremely big room, amazing decoration that makes you feel in a different place and era. i really enjoyed my stay. only two things i didn't like: i didn't have opportunity to try the food (i wish i had), and i wish i had stayed longer than 2 nights. if i had to think about any watch out, the only one could be that it is not convenient if you come for shopping or to the nicest areas of the city. but i had a few days at siam square area a week earlier to compensate that, so this experience at chinatown and this hotel was a wonderful twist to end the vacation on a different note. how often do you find a hotel you, your wife and your teen son all love?

"Budget Luxury Hotel with Character"
My wife and I had a great experience for our night at Shanghai mansion. The lobby was pretty minimal and unassuming (though I think they're working on renovating it), but once we got to our room we were delighted. The interior design was delightful: the lighting was very tasteful, the layout made the room feel more spacious, the decorations had good oriental character, and the large bathtub was one of the better ones we've used. Our room had a frosted window that we couldn't see out of, but the room felt spacious enough that It didn't bother us at all. Wifi was a bit slow (~0.4mbps down) in the room, but was better than nothing. We also had a little trouble with the login, but it worked eventually. Really this was our only complaint; everything else was exceptional.

"Enjoyed my stay"
The room and hotel are great. My only complaint was the door to the room has two windows next to it. These windows have very sheer shades that let a lot of light in from the common area. That was a little annoying when trying to sleep. The surrounding area is interesting but has no BTS or public transport. You'll need to taxi it to other parts of town. Breakfast was great. Overall value was great and I'd stay again if in Chinatown.

"Best Value Hotel"
I've been staying in 5 stars hotel for my business traveling and decided to try out this boutique hotel for my own vacation. The check in process and friendliness of the staff was the best I've ever encountered. The interior decor and use of colors were tastefully done. My 5th floor room was super quiet in comparison to the hustle and bustle Chinatown. For the very reasonable price that I paid, I believe it's the best deal you can find around the Chinatown area in Bangkok.

"What a gem. Would rate service a 10 if I could."
Beautiful hotel, extraordinary service. I expected lots of noise because of the Chinatown location but my room was very quiet. Nicely appointed room. The bed was very firm, which I like (slept like a baby) but if you are used to falling into a pillow top it may be too firm. Some of Bangkok's best and most interesting food is within 5 blocks of the hotel. Will definitely stay again.

This was our third visit to the hotel on this trip, and we enjoyed the experience. There were a few annoyances, such as the difficulty of getting a taxi when we left the hotel and the fact that the staff wanted to charge us for making a phone call to get restaurant reservations. Overall, good value with excellent breakfast and attentive staff.

We stayed here for 2 nights - Great decor with a great homely feeling. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was great and very clean! The only downside was the walls were very thin and could here everything happening next door plus there was building work being done during our stay which slightly spoilt it. But overall I would definitely stay here again.

"friendly staff; but a little too dimly lit"
Located in the heart of Chinatown (also known as Yaowaraj), we can't ask for more in terms of convenience. food places are within a stone's throw. immersed in the amazing culture. the midnight market is definitely a place to hunt for bargains. important point: no nearby BTS. nearest MRT is 10 min walk away, at hua lamphong. the room: deco: nicely done, to fit the theme. lighting: a tad dark. to the extent it was a bit eerie. bedding and pillows: comfy. showers: nice deco. hot water available. mini bar: complimentary, nice touch!

Everything about this hotel was beautiful, the bedroom, the bathroom, lobby and hallways, the lanterns hanging from the atrium. Very good wifi, tv, aircon, toiletries, a kettle in the room and all the home comforts you could possibly need. And a nice bar with live jazz at the entrance. All right in the centre of lively Chinatown. One of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in.

"An elegant exotic boutique hotel in Chinatown"
There aren't enough superlatives to describe my 5 night stay at Shanghai Mansion,Bankok.The decor is sophisticated 1930's Shanghai style. Guest comfort is the top priority with regard furnishings & staff attitudes.Breakfast was buffet style with a wide variety of choices ranging from classic Chinese breakfast dishes to freshly made egg dishes to order & various bakery items.The Red Rose a la carte restaurant was first class.The bedroom was delightful & everything worked.The lighting in the room was in keeping with the overall "moody"atmosphere & I have one suggestion in this regard. A bright bedside lamp would be helpful.I highly recommend Shanghai Mansion!

"A great find among all the hotels in Bangkok"
We have lived in Bangkok for 13 years, and just "discovered" Shanghai Mansion this past weekend. What a wonderful treat. Great service, lovely, vibrant decor, large rooms, and really good food. We loved the trio playing at the bar in the evenings and of course Chinatown is always an interesting place to be. When we told our friends they all expected this would be an expensive hotel, but in fact the price is very affordable and a great value. Highly recommended.

"Elegant with old fashioned quality service"
A wonderful experience with very helpful staff and nothing seemed a bother. Elegant antique furniture and decor throughout makes this place very special at a good price. The 4 poster beds and room decor was a special treat but if you like a softer mattress you won't get that here. Very typically firm mattress, similar to most places throughout Asia that aren't high end, but luxury down pillows and quality bedding make up for it. Highly recommended.

"SUPERIOR CHINATOWN HOTEL!"
I've stayed here with - and referred friends and family here who were also happy to stay here. What says a great deal: I've stayed here more times than I can count over somewhere close to 10 years! Great rooms beautifully decorated in a traditional Chinese manner. Always a fabulous buffet breakfast gets us off to a great start touring without wasting time looking for morning restaurants. Being located in fabulous Chinatown is perfect for gold shops, street food, a wet market (live seafood), easy walking distance to Wat Traimit and River Express boats. STAFF ARE FABULOUS! I cannot praise them all enough. I'll be back again next month - twice!

"A nightmare Xmas stay at Shanghai Mansion"
Shanghai Mansion is definitely a 2-star property with 1-star quality and service (definitely not a 4-star) with many in-room inserts, room furnitures and fixtures are in ageing stage (in 'sorry' working conditions), with requests not delivered, internet were hardly working. Most importantly, wedding ceremonies were held at the courtyard where all the Suites are located without any in-room sound proof insulator. We were completely disturbed from 0530am from the noise generated by the MC (with mic speaker) and the wedding guests. I have expected a Suites with quality and privacy but it turned to be a nightmare...

"Nice hotel in the heart of China Town"
Arrived hotel in the evening and checked in without any problem. However taxi driver do not know about this hotel so he has to start from the beginning of the China town road. I pointed it out to him when I saw the word "Shanghai Mansion" on the right, just directly opposite China Town hotel. Starbuck is in the hotel and also near the famous T&K seafood. Had dinner there because food was served fast and price reasonable. China town is still the same as before from my previous trips several years back so nothing special to share, just the usual gold shops, shark fin soup, birds nest etc We wen to visit Wat Po which is very near. We took the tuk-tuk there and return. One thing for sure, the price of tuk-tuk has increased tremendously and taxi refuse to run on meter. They all charge exorbitant price even for a short distance to anywhere, Example from Wat Po to BTS Hua Lamphung station, Tuk-tuk want to charge 500Baht, crazy!
