"Exotic Looking and Feeling Hotel"
This Hotel is in the heart of Chinatown Bangkok. An old building (18th century) that has been renovated in a very traditional opulent chinese style. Each floor is a rectangular area with rooms arranged around a court with a big fish pool. It is furnished with traditional high class antique chinese objects that give a truly nice feel. The robe in the […] room is made of fine silk, and feels unusually good on your skin. The staff is very helpful, but few speak english; and the ones that do, I frankly did not understand a word. Very few people speak English in Bangkok, particularly in Chinatown. The downsides were that the hotel smelled a bit musty, a smell that was infused with incense that did not quite cover it all. But perhaps, the biggest downside is that my room did not have a window. The building is so old I can understand the design being outdated, but I really dislike being in a room without a window no matter how nice the room is. That being said, I do recommend the Hotel. It is one of the more unusual places I have stayed in during my travels. Besides, the neighborhood is a must see especially at night. Some of the best street food stalls I have ever tasted are just a few steps away. I had lobster with noodles and a big glass of fresh pomegranate juice at a street stall for the equivalent of $8. ENJOY! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved it here!"
Funky location (Chinatown right in midst of street stalls/restaurants. Really neat decor in the rooms. Attention to detail was amazing. Not sure if this is all the time ( we visited in low-season of April and some protests going on, but we never saw any), but the perks were numerous: great rate, mini bar items were free and replenished each day, welcome […] drink of tea and cold towel, afternoon tea complimentary with savory snacks/ tea/desserts. Staff were helpful with tourism questions, getting a taxi, printing/copying for small fee, and incredibly welcoming. I'd recommend this place highly based on the service alone, the cool rooms and comfort are a bonus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful interior; great location"
This place was cool. The interior is beautiful/romantic, as are the rooms. Breakfast is very good with a wide selection, staff is friendly, and wifi has a strong signal. Location is great in the heart of very colorful Chinatown. Subway is 10 minute walk in one direction; the river and water taxi stop 10 minutes the other direction. I did not give it […] a 5 because of the room: I caught 2 mosquitos in my room, I stepped on a cockroach (luckily had shoes on!), and it had no desk for a laptop & business type of work.

I've stayed here a few times. I love the rooms and the bed is so comfortable. The breakfast wasn't my favorite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The atmosphere is wonderful and unique. Every detail is attended to. Plenty of common areas for discussion and reading. I loved the second floor garden. The breakfast buffet is the best I have had in Asia.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Felt that I was taken care of from the moment I arrived to the second I left. Staff very attentive, room super dark for sleeping, free mini bar, wonderful breakfast all in a neighborhood beckoning you out to explore Bangkok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel in Busy Bangkok"
This Hotel exceeded our expectations. All the staff was very friendly and helpful for the duration of our stay. The free minibar was a nice surprise upon arrival and the breakfast was wonderful with exotic fruit of the day and a cooking station preparing our eggs any way we desired. The Jazz band was most probably the best traditional Jazz Band in the […] city of Bangkok and together with the Hotel's special decor it truly gave us the feel of being back in the 1930's.

"A slice of peace in busy Chinatown"
In a hectic side of Bangkok (Chinatown), the Shanghai Mansion is a nice oasis of peace. The Hotel has great facilities, a complimentary mini bar (which is a win), awesome showers and bath tubs in the rooms and a great restaurant. I highly recommend if you want to be in the Chinatown area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Botique in good location"
Incredibly friendly staff, fantastic breakfast included. Perfect tourist location in Chinatown three boat stops from the palace. There was rennovation, but it didn't have any negative effect on us.Genuine Expedia guest review
Tucked away behind a Coffee Bean & Tea, we barely found the entrance when we arrived. They were doing a lot of construction on the place while we were there (Dec. '13), especially in the lobby and the hotel restaurant (Cotton) was closed, which was disappointing. They served free breakfast in the ballroom, which was pretty good. The room itself was […] beautiful and very spacious. The sink was slow to drain and the grout in the shower was discolored, but for Bangkok, that's nothing. The windows in the room were opaque, because they looked out onto a dirty alley, but frankly, all streets in Bangkok are either very noisy, busy streets with tons of pollution or dirty little alleys, so you wouldn't want to look out or open a window anyway. All in all, it was a good place to stay and I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stylish, Quiet Refuge in Chinatown"
We had a great stay at the Shanghai Mansion. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room had the hint of cigarette smoke in it, but we didn't complain. The bed was the largest one I've ever slept in. Complimentary minibar items (yes, complimentary!) Very stylish room. Hotel is undergoing a few renovations right now, so there's a bit of noise. […] The location is superb. We just kept walking around chinatown, amazed by the wealth of stuff and street food to try. Your mind will be blown. Stay here for sure!

"Nice hotel in Chinatown"
Great staff, excellent service. Rooms are very clean and they are decor very nicely withThai interior design feel. Our room was very nice on 3rd floor . Breakfast had good variety food. Close to great seafood restaurant . Very good value hotel for the price we payed.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel in Bangkok's Chinatown, and about a 5-10 minute walk from the Hua Lampong subway station. Easy to find, and our room was quiet despite the hotel being on the main drag. The hotel thoughtfully includes a guide to the street food in the area, which is top notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in Chinatown!!"
The staff was amazing. We arrived at the hotel around 3am due to a delayed flight. The staff was so nice from the moment we stepped out of the cab.

"Exceptional hotel in Bangkok Chinatown"
Shanghai Mansion is located at the epicenter of Bangkok's Chinatown about a 10 minute walk from the train station. The hotel sits amongst all the hustle and bustle of street food vendors and restaurant fronts in Chinatown, though is easily distinguishable. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel maintained a clean, relaxing presenc […] e. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Didn't feel like they were looking out for us"
The hotel itself was fine. I didn't feel like they went above and beyond for us. The one thing that annoyed me the most is that the man who nags us to get a taxi/tuktuk hailed by him, he never negotiated a good price! It was always on the high side. The final straw was a bit late to complain, but the woman at the desk said the taxi ride to the airport […] would be NO MORE than 500 baht. I argued because our taxi ride in was 273 baht. She assured me it would be less. Then the man got a taxi and told him we would pay 500! When I insisted he use the meter, he got upset and talked to the concierge. They both tried to tell me that I wouldn't worry about paying more that 500 with highway fees. I stood my ground and ended up paying 350 total. Won't stay there again!

"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 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. Even with a very late arrival, we were greeted with hot tea and cold towels. It was a great hotel for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great boutique/themed hotel"
It was a very comfortable stay in a very nicely done boutique hotel with a great ambiance. If you like the markets in Chinatown, it is also a fantastic location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boutique hotel with character"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Chinatown at its best"
Excellent experience. All as advertised. Visited hotel prior to stay (working in BKK), tried to make reservations via eMail but no answers. Website reservations want you to to submit a blank charge authorization...I'd never do that...better rates at online engines anyway. Good location in heart of Chinatown. Walk to riverboats, tuktuk to train or metro […] and even Wat Pho possible. Clean, interesting, different. Breakfast pretty good; interesting Asian dishes. Friendly folks though English knowledge falters somewhat (but hey - we're in Thailand, right?). Overall a 4.5/5 experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Highly recommend the Hotel!"
We would definitely go back! Highly recommend it! Very nice hotel! Great service! Wonderful breakfast! Right in the heart of Chinatown! FYI...The only downside to this hotel is that wifi is slow.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. It is an older hotel that doesn't feel old, but has the charm of a classic style. The rooms are a little on the small size, but plenty big for two people for the night. LCD TV's, wifi, and mini fridge makes it all very comfortable and convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
for the price i paid its a little bite on the high side for this hotel and the hotel is far away from everything. located in china town which is very crowded at nite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This hotel gets better and better"
This was my second stay at the Shanghai Mansion. The hotel has been completed... it was still under construction the first time. It is really pretty. The breakfast is much better and the new restaurant is a pleasant space. The staff is still really friendly and speaks good English. There is now live entertainment in the hotel. There was a Nat King Cole […] cover band in the bar at night. They were really fun to hear.... for free. The hotel is in the beginning of Chinatown which is a little inconvenient because traffic there is terrible. It is within a 10 minute walk of the river taxi and the Metro. I really don't mind the fact that it is where it is. Chinatown is a destination in itself with many restaurants and a vibrant market. I really reccomend this hotel. It just gets better and better.

Nice hotel, the room decorations were great. I stayed here for one night and ordered room service and it took an hour and a half. I actually fell asleep waiting.

"Only 10 mins walk to Ploen Chit BTS!"
Was on a solo trip for 2 nights (8-9 Aug 2014). Stayed here given the super good reviews. Room is of a great, comfy size and everything's clean. Hotel is located in the alley of Soi 2, just a straight walk down to the main road followed by a left turn to Ploen Chit BTS. Perhaps 10 mins walk? Hotel provides buggy service to the main road. Breakfast choice […] pretty limited but I guess you pay for the convenience instead of having to trudge around for a cafe early in the morning. A few cool eateries nearby like Cafe Bicycle and Witch's Oyster Bar & Restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A very good over-all experience"
Right from the welcome drink to arranging the taxi for our journey away from the hotel, every thing was very good and well-organised. The staff were very ready to help for whatever we asked them. The best part was that they offered to keep our baggage safely for free for 2 days even after our check-out from the hotel. But somehow, all the taxi/toktok […] drivers found it difficult to find the hotel even after we tried to communicate it very clearly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a good find!"
This hotel is located in Chinatown area of bangkok within easy reach of subway however we walked to grand palace (about 3km) and there is a pier that the tourist boat stops at close by too! The staff in the hotel were extremely helpful and made you feel very much at home, they gave recommendations of street food vendors to try which is a must in Chinatown! […] The hotel is beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. Great buffet breakfast. They even provided a complimentary Chinese afternoon tea one of the days we stayed- really nice touch. Would thoroughly recommend staying here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Currently being refurbished but we were not disturbed, although restaurant for dinner was closed. Excellent breakfast, clean room, helpful staff.
