Lovely boutique hotel

Stayed here for 2 nights, hotel is clean and room had a huge, comfortable bed. Free snacks and water in the mini bar, good hairdryer, robes etc and lovely old Chinese style decor. Was really clean and felt like we'd gotten a real bargain as it wasn't very expensive but felt fairly luxurious.

Area is vibrant and hectic, but hotel is a cool, oasis of calm when you go inside. Open air bar/cafe at the front with reasonable priced drinks and friendly staff. Will definitely stay here again. Didn't try the hotelrestaurants so can't comment on those.

Dear Valued Guest,

I'm very thankful you took the time on sharing your review here on TripAdvisor. Indeed Shanghai Mansion showcases vibrant colors as well as has it's own way of taking you back in time like that of the 1930's era.

Next time you will be back home here with us, it would be lovely for you to try our restaurants as well as our afternoon tea time with our compliments.


Best regards,

Ms. Tassanee Numar-cha

So if you like great, fair price, beautiful decoration and good service do not hesitate to stay here.
The hotel, as the name suggests, is all based in old ancient typical Shanghai, so the most expensive rooms has their entrance decorated as a typical chinese house from a small villa.
Our room was impecably decortaded: the wallpaper were very delicate, the bathroom was huge, all the mini bar items as for free everyday and they are correctly restocked.
The night manager was the most attentive person ever: we told him what our plans were for the next day and he sent us a letter during the night with some hints and tips of the place and left the card of a driver in case we needed assistance. He set up the wake up call as we requested and later called to make sure we were up so we would enjoy our day better.
This hotel has a bar outside that plays a jazz/blues/international music band.
The general manager is walking around making sure she greets guests. She greeted me, shaking my hand and making sure our stay was perfect.
Right on its street there's a street market with great chinese/thais food and many chinese restaurants. It has a fancy restaurant on the 2nd floor.
The only little thing that was as pleasant is that the room was smelling a bit moldy but no signs of mold or debrees inside the room.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review here on TripAdvisor. As I have as well previously mentioned I try to personally meet as much guests as possible so that I will be able to have the chance on checking how else can we make their stay better.

I really appreciate that you still do remember our meeting as well. Rest assured that your feedback will be shared to my team which I will as well double check about the bit moldy smell just to make sure on this.

Our jazz band playing at Shanghai Terrace is by the way called The Siam Swing band, they'll be very glad to know that you were as well fond of their music.

Until we meet again.

My boyfriend and I usually stay in budget guesthouses, but we decided to spend more this time and stay at the Shanghai Mansion. With the Agoda special rate, it was worth every penny. Our four-poster king-size bed was very comfortable. Some rooms face outward onto the street (but with colored tinted windows there's no way to look in or out), while ours faced the interior of the hotel, so it didn't have any natural light, but it was so dark and quiet that we had the best sleep we've had in months. Be sure to request which type of room you want when you book and double-check with the receptionist when you check in. The vintage Chinese decor was tastefully done, and the warm colors and Chinese lanterns created a romantic setting for our holiday. The staff were genuinely friendly, and Mr. Is the doorman was always ready to help us with a smile on his face. The internet was good. The bar had live music every night, with some good local jazz musicians. There's a 7-11 a few steps away from the entrance on one corner and at the other end of the block is T&K Seafood, a very cheap dinner option if you're in the mood for delicious, fresh seafood in an authentic streetfood setting. The location is generally good, right in the middle of China Town. It's very close to the central train station, Hua Lamphong. However, it's far from the BTS stations. Taxis all knew of the place, and were able to get us to Siam Shopping centre for around 60 baht. Walking one block over to the next parallel street got us into some lighter traffic, where it was faster and easier to get a taxi out of China town. The breakfast was good, with a mix of Western breakfast standards, Chinese food and also some savory Thai rice porridge. The freshly extracted juice made to order from local fruits was a nice touch. Overall, we were very happy with our time at the Shanghai Mansion and will probably stay there again next time we're in Bangkok.

Dear Valued Guest.

I'm very glad to know that not only you've enjoyed our decors and all but especially the fact that you were able to sleep well.

Shanghai Mansion's decor drives mood and romance that a lot of our guests even took a lot of photos to not only share that lovely moment with friends and family back home but as well to keep the memory alive.

Khun Is has already been informed as well of how glad you were with his assistance. We will be always waiting for your return. Let me know in advance so I can personally look after you.

We stayed here for 4 nites in March 2014 and it could not have been better! It is smallish but the staff treat you like family and we were sad to leave. It has character and is well situated in the bustling Chinatown of Bangkok. It is close to Wats, the river ferries, the sky train and everything you would like to see in Bangkok. Mrs. Oi makes you feel at home, the breakfast has everything you could possibly want to eat, the Cotton Club in the hotel serves dinner with a trio playing and the coffee shop next to the side walk is a great place to watch the world go by. Say hi to Poi for us, she was great IT support!
Love the Mansion and hope to back soon.

Room Tip: the inside rooms are quieter. do not miss breakfast here. Try the "BUTTER CHERRY" drink in...

Wonderful special and colourful hotel in Bangkok's China Town! Exciting rooms with lots of kitsch details. Nice cafe just by the entrance. Good for a couple of nights if you want something a bit digferent but luxurious, clean and affordable. The coconut schampoo, conditioner and body lotion as well as the free mini bar is a big plus!

Dear Valued Guest,

To have you with us is a great thing and to have your pleasant experience about us is something that we are as well thankful of.

Speaking of our shampoo and conditioner, coconut's countless benefits has undoubtedly made us choose this product for a healthy-looking skin. Aside from it's all natural, a lot of our guests as well complimented it's sweet smelling scent. So next time around you will see one wherever you may be, hope this will remind you of us and that we will be right here waiting for you to be back.

This hotel was so comfortable that I felt at home. I just spent one night there but wished to stay longer.
Staff was very nice and helped me to find taxi and tuk tuk at a convenient price.

Stayed here while in bangkok and ended up staying an extra night because the hotel was so nice. It's a little expensive for thailand but you get what you pay for. The staff where very helpful in advising us on how much to pay for things such as taxis and tuk tuk's in bangkok as it was our first time. Would certainly recommend this hotel.
