The Chinatown district is one the original areas of Bangkok when it was first established as the capital. The area was once surrounded by the city walls although few reminders can be seen today. Chinatown is a colourful district full of local character and makes for a convenient base for nearby tourist attractions such as the Grand Palace and Wat Po.
Boonsiri Place Hotel
Located in the Banglamphu district, Boonsiri Place is conveniently located for some of Bangkok’s major tourist attractions. The lively area of Khao San Road is a 5 minute walk away, and it is just a 10 minute walk to the Grand Palace, Wat Pra Kaeo and the National Museum. Each of the hotel’s 48 rooms are decorated in their own individual style and feature air conditioning, private bathroom with shower (hot and cold water) and cable television.
Situated in the heart of bustling Chinatown, the décor at Shanghai Mansion Boutique Hotel reflects the Chinese heritage of the area. The 51 Superior Rooms (25 sq. m) and 4 Junior Suites (37 sq. m) are vibrantly coloured and many of the rooms have antique-style four-poster beds for an added romantic touch. Traffic on Yaowaraj Road can be extremely busy even by Bangkok standards, but there are plenty of alternative transport options close at hand. Not surprisingly, the area is home to some of the best Chinese restaurants and food stalls in Bangkok.
