Nice hotel smack in the middle of Chinatown. We stayed here on a layover for onward travel. It gave us a chance to experience Chinatown - a unique sector of BKK. Rooms were nice with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms - you cannot beat accommodations for the price (and breakfast was included!!) Good service from the staff as well.....
There is a wonderful koi pond on first floor with rooms adjacent....

We stayed here upon arrival in Bangkok and loved Shanghai Mansion for its incredible ambiance. Our room was cozy and had all the amenities we needed. We stayed in a few hotels during our time in Bangkok, and this by far had the best breakfast...both Western and dim sum. Though Chinatown might be a bit crazy for some, the hotel is beautifully decorated and quiet, and only a 10-min walk to the MRT (subway) Hua Lamphong and train station. In all, a great value.

I stayed here for a night with a friend, then by myself. I couldn't fault his place and it was the perfect end to my Thai travels. It's so well decorated from the wallpaper, to the carpet, to the hallway to reception - whoever thought of the hotel design is a clever person indeed! The jazz club was adorable, I watched a Thai band cover The Beatles and Bob Dylan (it was excellent). When stopping through Bangkok again I will not hesitate to go here!

My friend and I found this place by accident after our islan holiday was rained off. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but from the minute you enter, you'll be glad you did. The service was incredible, the staff are really fantastic. The bar, food, ambiance and decor are equally top class and the rooms are really comfortable. Exceptional value for money. Stay here.

What a wonderful experience we had at Shanghai Mansion! We stayed here as the first stop on our honeymoon in Thailand. We were looking for a special experience that was not extremely pricey (for Thailand), and we found all of that and more with Shanghai Mansion. For an extremely reasonable price, we were able to book one of their Mu Dan suites, which is not only spacious, but beautifully decorated and includes a huge and luxurious bath tub. You truly feel as if you have stepped into another time and place. Our lovely room was right next to their soothing fishpond that successfully sets the zen tone for the whole experience. The rooms are maintained wonderfully, and there are always treats in the mini-bar that are free of charge, which is a nice bonus.

The other half of this wonderful experience is the great customer services that we experienced from the moment our taxi pulled up in front of the hotel. We were greeted at the reception with cold fruit juice and cool minty towels to refresh us after our travel. From the front desk staff to the bellboys to the restaurant staff, everyone goes above and beyond to be helpful, friendly and welcoming. Navigating Chinatown can be intimidating, but all we had to do was tell one of the staff what we wanted to do, whether it be finding a great food stand or a thai massage, and they would point us in the right direction.

Finally, we ended up extending our time in Bangkok to deal with some unexpected work issues that required us to have ongoing internet access (yes, on our honeymoon), and booked a less expensive room online for the additional nights since we had not budgeted to spend an entire week at the cost of the suite. As soon as our new reservation appeared in their system, we received a call from the front desk saying they wanted to upgrade us free of charge so that we could stay in our suite for the remaining 4 days of our visit, which we deeply appreciated.

The only possible drawback to the hotel is the location. We personally loved staying in the middle of Chinatown, as we were looking for a less touristy location and to experience the famous street food. However, I can see how some people might be a little intimidated to be based out of Chinatown- especially if it is their first stop in Thailand.

We cannot wait to come back to Shanghai Mansion on future trips to Bangkok and will certainly recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mu Dan suite which was very reasonable (around $100 per night) and extremely spacio...

So Terrible if this hotel will be fully booked the next time I go to Bangkok because I HAVE to write how wonderfull it is. Soo nice rooms, service, location and for only few dollars.
Amazing....
And you walk outdoor, 3 steps to the right and best seafood from Bangkok at your doorstep.
Around the same corner very nice reflexo and thai massage.....
One of those things you can be really happy about that you discovered it.
So go all there, but please leave 1 room for me.. Thanks (the one with the bathtub).

Room Tip: There is 3 different room: try them all !!!

Front of the hotel does not do this hotel justice, once welcomed by the reception staff and shown to our room we were very impressed by the room and hotel. There is a free mini bar containing, crisps, biscuits, cans of pop and water. Every "tourist" attraction is a short tuk tuk or taxi ride away.

Room Tip: Plum rooms are four poster beds very nice
