I love boutique hotels because they usually put effort into the design, and the prices are reasonable. Shanghai Mansion is unlike anywhere I've ever been. The design in all common areas fabulous. Hotel rooms frame an atrium with a fountain, so you feel like you're in a garden. Inside your rooms, you will be pleased with great touches like indoor bird cages. Cotton, their restaurant, has live music every night - great jazz groups. Such a nice touch. The value is great for Bangkok - service is comparable to big hotel names. If you appreciate unique decor, great value and service, this place is for you.

We absolutely loved shanghai mansion. The staff is quite friendly, cotton bar has great food, and the hotel is 5 star by any standards. The place was decorated in this chic Chinese way and there is so much detail from the lighting to the beds to the bird cages in the shower! Love that! Also don't underestimate the value of quality towels and linens. The towels are super high end and give you that shangri-la feeling for a much lower price! I will stay no where else!

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor. Awesome set up!

Started badly when we had booked a twin room and got a double. The reception staff were not very helpful at all and it only got better when management got involved. A camp bed was eventually agreed upon but when we got to the room it had been placed in the bathroom between the bath and basin. The staff quickly moved it when we suggested they move an armchair so it could be in the main room.

Had to move rooms again when the roof started leaking water one night. The night staff were very helpful at 3am, but unfortunately the reception staff the next morning were not and had no idea about the offer to change rooms that had been extended.

The decor was great, but nothing great about the Chinatown location. Not much to see or do when wandering around nearby.

We were also not told about the hotel tuk tuk until we saw it outside one day and asked about it.

On the good side, the breakfast was good value for the price and certainly enough choice. The bar and jazz band were also very good and a pleasant evening was spent there one night.

Let me start by saying that, if you're expecting the Mandarin Oriental or Banyan Tree, you will be disappointed. If your expectations are aligned with the price of the rooms, however, this is a remarkably charming boutique hotel that I would highly recommend. The main point separating this hotel from the flock is the décor - it's obvious that a lot of thought and care has gone into laying everything out with period Chinese/Chinoiserie effects and it felt very unique. The showers were wonderful, the beds big and comfortable, and the included breakfast service was entirely adequate and tasty.

One point worth noting - Bangkok is not a pedestrian friendly, European-style city with an easily walkable/accessible central core. No matter where you stay in the city, getting between the major sites simply is not practical by foot (especially in the heat). Chinatown is likely as good a district as any, given this, but don't expect everything you'll want to see to be within a few blocks.

Also, as its name implies, you'll really only find Chinese food in Chinatown. Or, at least, we couldn't find Thai food to save our life. The Chinese food in the area was exquisite, and the hotel was perfectly located for that, but you'll need to venture further for local food.

This hotel is in chinatown, which is not really the best area to stay in Bangkok. We stayed here because it looked so nice in the pictures, but in actuality it wasnt that exciting to be honest.

We had booked a double room and they gave us a twin, which looked cramped and we were glad to change. The double was nicer, the bed was a huge four poster and looked very pretty with the chinese lanterns around it, but this novelty wore off as quickly as the birdcage in the bathroom, which seemed a little tacky after banging your head on it a couple of times.

The floor was stone and kind of spoiled the cosy effect of the room.

The staff were only helpful in what to see in chinatown and didnt help with advice on seeing Bangkok itself at all.

I was glad we only booked 2 nights and very happy to move to a better area of Bangkok on day 3 as Chinatown was pretty much manic 24-7 and near nothing of any particular interest.

Not a bad hotel, just not as nice as it looks in the pictures. And the location was a bad choice.
