Shanghai Mansion

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Many Thais have Chinese ancestry, and this 1930s nod to Old Shanghai in a historic building along Chinatown’s main street aims to reflect this heritage.

The dramatic courtyard is enlivened by enchanting bird-cage lanterns, while the exotic rooms are decorated with Chinese screens and colourful cushions made from cheongsam fabrics.

Chinese books and draughts boards fill the library, and a delicious Chinese-inspired afternoon tea, and jazz bands at the Shanghai Terrace bar complete the look.

The location in the heart of historic Chinatown is superb. Sights are a stroll away and the river is close for ferries. There’s no swimming pool, but you can cool down by the water garden.

Surrounding area

Bangkok’s historic Chinatown is the most atmospheric part of the city. Many Thais are of Chinese descent, and this is a living, breathing community with a rich culture where life carries on as it always has – on the streets. Charming old shops selling Chinese medicines are tucked in between electronics stores, ramshackle shophouses and temples.

Foodies couldn’t ask for a better location. Every day after dark, some of Bangkok’s best street food stalls set up along Yaowarat Road, right on the hotel’s doorstep.
