An excellent hotel for the more confident traveller who likes to explore local areas or those that have been to Bangkok before and are looking for something less ‘touristy’. The location of the Shanghai Mansion in the heart of bustling Chinatown means that you have an abundance of delicious street food close at hand plus all the colour and verve of the local markets and shops.
The Shanghai Mansion (formerly the Shanghai Inn) is a period property which once served as an opera house and area for performing arts catering to the Chinese community in Bangkok. The hotel hasn’t forgotten its past and the art deco lobby, elegant 1930s styling and Chinoise style can be seen throughout this boutique hotel with vibrant colours and striking fabrics.
All rooms have a Chinese theme and include:
mini bar; free wi-fi; air-conditioning; cable TV; hair-dryer; tea & coffee making facilities
airport transfers; laundry/dry cleaning; restaurant; room service; tours; Cotton Jazz Bar; complimentary tuk tuk to nearby markets (and some tourist attractions).
The hotel is located on Yaowaraj Road in Bangkok’s Chinatown district and is situated in between Bangkok’s central train station (Hua Lamphong) and the Chao Phraya River. The nearest metro station is Hua Lamphong which is approximately a 15 minute walk away. The nearest river pier is Tha Ratchavongse (marked on maps as pier number N5) can also be reached by foot in less than 15 minutes and the regular river boat services are a good way to get to major sightseeing attractions such as the Grand Palace, Wat Po and Wat Arun.
