“Perfect Bangkok Hotel”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Shanghai Mansion is in the heart of Bangkok's Chinatown. It never fails to please. Stepping out of the colors, smells and sounds of Bangkok I entered the calm, quiet and sophistication of Shanghai Mansion. The reception is friendly and helpful, the rooms are fun and comfortable and the atrium and balcony areas are beautiful.

Totally loved this hotel. The rooms were an oasis in the middle of the chaos of China Town. Our standard room was wonderful, simply cannot beat the price. We would have paid twice as much. The hotel was beautiful. If I had anythng negative thing to say, it would be the service in the restaurant. The staff were very nice and polite. However, once we received our food, it was difficult to get follow on drinks. The hotel had a great lounge with a wonderful blues/jazz band. Highly recommend this hotel and the great price was a bonus.

This is an excellent Bangkok hotel in the heart of Chinatown. For the money, it's the best boutique hotel I've stayed at. Fantastic decor, quiet rooms, and very professional staff. Best of all, there is an amazing street food scene just steps outside the hotel.

Pictures don't do justice to this charming and alluring hotel in the heart of Chinatown. The hotel unfolds itself beautifully like the blooming of a flower with well-thought details from the lobby all the way to the bedroom. Every nook and turn is a surprise and it keeps you wanting to unfold its secrets. I regretted staying here with my girlfriend here only for a night as it was such a memorable experience!

Usually the location would be a huge consideration for me as there was no train services or airport links nearby and it was about 20 mins ride away from the city centre. But the hotel made up the shortfall by offering free tuk-tuk services to guests at designated timings. What was missing was also an indoor pool to indulge in the beautiful ambience.

Breakfast buffet was superb with its delectable and authentic spreads. Guest officers were also warm and welcoming, ready to answer queries and to engage in casual conversations. Thank you for this memorable, beautiful experience

We arrived mid afternoon on the first leg of our honeymoon and were welcomed with a big smiles from all the staff to showed us to reception, checked us in, took us to our room.

We were given an upgrade also which was wonderful our room was amazing and I wouldn't doubt there being any problems with any rooms in this hotel.

The décor is great, the hotel is clean and fresh and cool which is needed in Bangkok.

We ate in the hotel our first night and the restaurant is well priced for a hotel but is obviously more expensive than the street food stalls but the quality was very high and the service yet again brilliant.

Breakfast is great a wide selection of fresh fruits, yoghurt, breads, buns, hot and cold food along with a hot plate were eggs are cooked fresh if you wish.

The staff are brilliant very helpful with anything you ask and we would choose to stay in this hotel again if we were to stay in Bangkok in future.

Thank you to all for making our first two honeymoon nights very comfortable and enjoyable.

This is a wonderful hidden gem in Bangkok. It is in Chinatown which is a lively neighborhood with so much choice for dining (mostly on the street but the quality is so good it hardly matters).

When you arrive at the hotel you don't know what to expect. The entrance with a small bar area seems out of place as does the escalator. However, when you take the escalator up to the lobby area you are immediately immersed in serenity. A cold cloth and a refreshing drink are a wonderful touch.

After the check in procedure you are taken to your room and this is the first view you have of the tasteful atrium and lighting.

On arriving in your room it is a mix of trendy and traditional. A wooden four poster bed, lacquered closets but a modern sink and bathroom. The bed is comfortable nice linens and pillows. The shower is hot and the towels fluffy. There is drinking water provided and free snacks in the fridge which is a nice touch. The air conditioning works well and is not overly noisy.

Breakfast is a mix of Asian and western food and of good quality. It is buffet style and was included in our room rate. The bar on the ground floor is a nice place to have a cold beer after a long day sight-seeing.

All the staff is very friendly and helpful. They truly know what the word "service" means here.

If you are looking for something that is not a big hotel in the central business district of Bangkok the Shanghai Mansion is a wonderful alternative

This chic boutique style hotel is fantastic. The staff are super friendly and attentive, the rooms are beautifully decorated, very big comfortable bed. We booked a garden suite it had a huge beautiful bath which was a great way to relax after running around Bangkok sights. The court yard is stunning beautifully lit up with colourful lanterns. Ideally located at the start of Chinatown madness, easy guide taxis to...

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the suite well worth it.
