In case the title here doesn't make this clear enough, puns for titles are going to be really difficult in South East Asia - hang in there, and we'll try to do better.

After our brief interlude in the UK, we were off again, this time Bangkok-bound. In a moment of confusion, we booked our flights with Air China, and I had spent two whole 2 …

Arriving at Bangkok I exchanged my money, and then got a taxi to my hotel Shanghai Mansion. The first taxi company was going to charge me 1,400 baht... urr don't think so and so luckily a guy told me to get the metre taxi which cost me 500 baht massive difference. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff are lovely. I couldn't believe how …

Westbound

Our second land crossing, successful.

This time we headed west. Arranged shared taxi to border at Poipet ($5 each) which meant sharing the front passenger seat - the back seat was full (4 persons). Literally signed out of Cambodia and walked across the border. They've managed to build some casinos in the space between. It's a strange world …

Tuk Tuks, Temples and Thai food

Our first day turned out to be a success!

We had booked a free tuk tuk from our hotel to the Grand Palace for 10am. My first tuk tuk experience was fun after the initial concerns for my safety! The drivers in Bangkok are crazy but the tuk tuk drivers know what they're doing and how to skillfully weave in and out of peak time traffic. …

    Not your normal stale hotel, nicely designed public areas. Free mini bar. Good location, once you get use to the surrounds.

    Highly recommended, we were greeted on arrival with complimentary green tea, presented by the friendly staff. The staff were keen to help, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was a twin, it was immaculate, had free snacks in the mini bar, silky robes and slippers. The decor was colourful and fit for china town.

    It was a little bit of paradise in the middle of a bustling city, which eased us in nicely for the rest of our travels.

    Shanghai Mansion - Lovely and very helpful

    Reviewed Jan 7, 2013
    by (7 reviews) , United States Flag of United States

    This is the second time we have stayed at the Shanghai Mansion. Exceptionally clean, great breakfast included in the room rate. There are virtually no windows in the rooms as the hotel is packed tight into the heart of historic chinatown - but it keeps the rooms virtually silent. The staff was very helpful in arranging a long ride taxi and kindly storing our bike boxes and extra gear for 2 months.

    Tolles Hotel in China-Town

    by (4 reviews) Vienna , Austria Flag of Austria

    In China-Town, ca 10 Gehminuten zum Hua Lampong-Trainstation liegt das Hotel gut um die Stadt zu erkunden. Die Zimmer sind toll eingerichtet, wir hatten eine Suite im 1. Stock die wirklich mehr als genug Platz bietet. Kaffe / Tee wird im Zimmer kostenlos angeboten, sowie Badeschaum und Körpercreme aus Kokos-Produkten, Haarshampoo & Duschgel. WIFI am Zimmer ist kostenlos, Code an der Rezeption erhältlich. Minibar ist inkludiert (1 Bier, 1 Cola, 1 Sprite, 2 Wasser, Oreo-Kekse ...)
    Amerikanisches Frühstück mit großer Auswahl. Das Personal sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend (wir hatten angefragt ob wir unser Koffer eine Nacht vor Check In einstellen können, da wir zuerst noch in den Norden gefahren sind, war kein Problem. Hotel ist Nichtraucher, allerdings befindet sich im Erdgeschoß das angehörige Pub (die Rezeption selbst ist mit Rolltreppen in den ersten Stock erreichbar - diese werden ab 24:00 abgedreht) mit Blick zur Straße, hier kann geraucht werden.
    Super Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.

    Fantastic hotel in the heart of China Town

    by (5 reviews) Singapore , Singapore Flag of Singapore

    This one was one of the best hotels I stay in during my 3 month long trip. I'd been staying in various places in different price brackets but this hotel was the best value for money (the original place I booked was almost double the price with no breakfast or Wi-Fi) and the 'fresh' made breakfast was terrific. One important aspect for me when travelling was having good/cheap internet access, and this was my reason for changing hotels. The Shanghai Mansion was just out of this world and I will be back later this year.

    Many thanks to all the staff and especially to the F&B manager who gave me a tour of the hotel and an insight to the wedding party that was being prepared in the main function suite.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Shanghai Mansion Bangkok

    Brilliant!!!!

    from

    Have stayed in lots of hotels in Bangkok, of all classes and in all areas, but have never been totally happy. That is until I came accross this place, which was exactly what I was looking for. It's location is great, Chinatown is fun and the food is great. Also easy to get around the sites to the north and the shops to the east. The hotel itself is pretty unique interms of its decor and its atmosphere. From the moment you walk in the lobby you know it's not your run of the mill place. Rooms have everything you need and the beds are brilliant. The staff are great and really efficient - really can't say how happy both myself and my girlfriend were with everything and I finally have a place I can rely on every tme I travel to Bangkok.

    Great Hotel

    from

    We stayed in the Shanghai Inn for 3 nights in November 2006 it is a good hotel and the staff are friendly. The rooms are nice, breakfast is good. We would stay there again and would recommend it to other travellers.

    Great hotel, not so great location

    from

    We stayed at the Shanghai Inn during our stay in Bangkok for several nights of our honeymoon. The hotel is adorable! Great use of color and decor. Very chic. It looks EXACTLY like the photos online. And the price is wonderful.

    Great value for money

    from

    We can recommend the Shanghai Inn in Bangkok. We have now been travelling for over 4 months and so far the best value for money we have come across. The rooms are spacious, the decor tactful (oriental), good service, breakfast above average, good location, and great price for all this. And free wireless internet access in every room. We enjoyed our stay so much that already stayed there twice this month.

    Luxury haven in the heart of frantic China Town

    from

    My wife and I have just spent 3 nights here and recommend this Hotel. The Hotel is situated in the heart of China Town, close to all the major attractions. We booked through Ebookers and the price offered, £70 for the 3 nights, seemed so cheap that we thought best pay a little extra and upgrade to a suite.

    Macabre

    from

    This hotel looked very good on the website and first impressions do not dissapoint. However, there are several things that bring it down a few pegs. You can certainly get better facilities for the same price elsewhere. If you strip away the decor you are left with a backpackers domitory. The rooms are tiny and not comfortable. If you are unlucky to be situated near the reception the wooden walls and ill fitting doors do little to keep out any noise (or mosquitoes). Mock stuffed birds in cages adorn the shower room which is macabre and I felt like I had moved onto the movie set of Fu Man Chu. Breakfast is pretty chaotic with not enough staff to service you and there is not enough space to sit at peak times. The food, cuttlery and choices quickly run out and are replaced at a tedious and eclectic rate. There is no outside view so each moment spent in your room feels like it should be night time.

    Dont go

    from

    DONT GO

    Eccentric, strange place but the BEST is that I left my things in the safe, I took them out only to give them to the hotel personnel so that they store them in the room they use to save the things until you come back to pick them up and... THEY STOLE my cash (20 € and 20 pounds) and my photograph camera...

    It is a 3 stars hotel and you cannot even let your things IN THE SAFE!!

    JUST AVOID IT

    Absolutely GREAT!

    from

    We stayed here for 3 nights and we had a blast!!!

    After missing or flight we missed our first night, but they didn't charge us and offered us another night.

    I absolutely loved the rooms, the bed and the bathroom with the birdcage in it!! Very colourful with beautiful details. Staff was very helpfull and friendly.

    Breakfast was really good, tropical fruit, toast and eggs, soup. Chinatown is sparkling and alive, great!!

    We booked a packagedeal for a real good price and got a free Thai massage at the nearby Spa, which was great.

    I abolutely recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Bangkok for a good price!

    It was a happening!!!!

    from

    Hello! We´ve been enjoiing 3 very well days at shanghai inn!!! the rooms are very sweet and with much love for details. big bed, nice furnitures, lovely bathroom, very clean and new - everything chinese style. the stuff is very friendly and helpfull. we could check out at 2 p.m. without any problems (- thank´s a lot). we can highly recommend shanghai inn. i think it is within the best hotel in bangkok for this price!!! and chinatown is really in the middle of everything. breakfast is fine: small buffet with fruits, milk, flakes, toast, croissant, butter, marmelade, coffee and tea. you get also egg with ham. it´s a small breakfast but good enough. no question at all: next time bangkok with shanghai inn again - it was a happening!!!!
