                6.6

                Live jazz music at the bar is good. There are a lot of food stalls during the night outside the hotel.

                Too small for a "suite" room. The breakfast is dissapointed. Can't watch tv while you're in bed. Watch out for the promotion at the hotel website might not applicable while you're booking through booking agents.

                Walking into this hotel was like walking back in time...the decor was beautiful with an elegance not found in your average hotel. The staff are also exceptional.

              • Older travelers

                The staff were very helpful in finding travel agents to help plan the rest of the trip, walking us to the best affordable "Thai massage", and providing any other items we needed in the room. The rooms are quaint and we were able to move items around so our large bags wold fit nicely. Good ambiance and easy access to taxi's. We would stay there again.

                The staff were great and easy to get along with. The Hotel itself is fabulous as described, the decor is inspiring and you feel like you are stepping back in time when you enter the grand courtyard. Loved it. Location is fantastic right in the heart of China Town, what a buzz.

                4.6

                The fun aspect of the decor in the public areas and rooms. well carried through for a no luxury hotel.and the huz buz out side the main entrance in the street makes it a entertaining place to stay . HArd to get away form though with traffic and no trains nearby

                The bedbugs that bit me . They thought at reception it was sufficent to change the sheets.I was so tiered I couldn't face a fight to get a new room as I had already fought to get this one. The room category I had booked that was I think 2nd up, had the open bathroom at the foot of the bed. All rooms the same. I said it was out of the question I would sleep in such a bad feng shui. So they changed the sheets but I was biten the next night too.t. I told the manager the 2nd and last day and as a compensation she gave me a late check out and asked if I'd like, at that late point, to change rooms. The staff are not very aware and speak little english.The bar serves drinks with even less alchool and more melted ice than is usually the case in Thailand. and asking for a proper strength led to being charged a further 100 BAht for a still insipid cocktail. Booze is cheap in Thailand so that smacks of mean but the 30's band was nice. No windows that could open to clear the air and get day light is a odd feeling in a room after a while.

                The room is fantastic. Breakfast was good just service wise need inprovement.

                Imagine walking along a beach and you meet up with someone coming opposite you. You both stop exchange greetings and romance is in the air with the perfect night sky, the sound of waves and glances that appreciate but do not stare. Shanghai Mansion fullfills all your dreams, it is the perfect oasis in terms of the hotel but far more importantly with the staff led by Tew who confront every issue with true determination to solve all with a genuine character that leaves one with admiration. Truly this hotel deserves all it's acolades and with out question next time I need to be romantic in Bangkok this is the only place i will be booking into. The Cotton club is a soothing place and one never hears the hustle and buslte outside or even the rain. The Mu Dan Suite is a true inspiration. Book the Romantic package and the South African Red, wonderful in all aspects.Can't wait to rebook. Staff well trained, professional and with a sense of humour. Ajarn Anton

                There are 2 showers fixed to the wall, the rain shower is excellent the other hand held shower due to it's fixing shoots to the shower door then falls to the floor and seeps out onto the main bedroom floor and a flood situation arises due to no rubber fitting to the base of the shower door.

                10.0

                Everything is a good surprise at Shanghai Mansion hotel: design, breakfast, kindness of the people and their sense of humour.

                A slight drawback: our room had no natural light + too much air conditioning in the breakfast room (it was freezing)

                The room was very classy and a great place to take someone special.

                Laundry service too expensive.

                I've never stayed in such a style of hotel before. The moment you walk into the reception, your mouth will drop! The decor, fish swimming around in a pool on the second floor, the ability to take some of them into your room for relaxation, the high standard of the room - perfect location as in Chinatown. Go there!!

                Nice interior, good location

                Very poor service: they don't answer on e-mails and actually don't provide with free airport transfer or tuk-tuk service as they say. Relatively poor breakfast.

                Decoration of the hotel is absolutely fabulous, you feel like being transferred to Shanghai in 1930, nonetheless not missing the small luxury here and there that we have nowadays and would not want to miss. The hotel is also located near the main railway station of Bangkok (Hua Lamphong), that can be reached in 10 minutes by foot.

                The Chinatown, and specially the Yaowaraj Road, where the hotel is located, are very busy and not the cleanest and coziest streets in Bangkok. In our room though we luckily did not hear or smell any of it.

                We were really satisfied with the hotel and enjoyed the retro Chinese atmosphere of the decoration, and also the Chinese food for breakfast. The hotel is quiet despite being in the middle of Chinatown, which is full of all sorts of smells and noises and in our opinion was a very special part of Bangkok.

                The bathroom in our room was not fully independent: there is a stand-alone tub, the WC and the shower are next to each other divided by a see-through window. This might be a bit uncomfortable for those who wish more privacy for these sort of things. However this distribution integrates beautifully in the context of the room.

                The Hotel and bedrooms were very attractive just like the photos on the website and fully air conditioned which was very important. The bed was king sized and very comfortable. The bathroom facilities were very enjoyable. The staff were lovely.

                Not a large range of TV channels and no DVD facility for movies in our room, although i understand the larger suites have DVD players. The sofa was not very comfortable and TV placed so it could not be watched from the bed. There were no clear windows to the outside world to indicate time of day, however, as Chinatown is an extremely busy part of Bangkok that may not have been a bad thing.

                Friendly staff. Good location for access to Chinatown. Interesting interior design. Free minibar. Free DVD rental.

                Hot food served on cold plates. Some rooms have no window; others have a frosted window - so no views. Traffic congestion is very bad in the area.
