When I walked in this hotel, located in Bangkok Chinatown, I suddenly forget I was in Bangkok and think I am in China. It is not the “make-up-to-look-like” type. The owner has really put in the true essence of China from design to in-room amenities to restaurant food items to make the “Shanghai” experience authentic. The best part is, it is a luxury boutique hotel that has won a few luxury awards already. But the price is much cheaper than a similar hotel of such quality in real Shanghai!
I just read an article saying 16% of Chinese like to stay at Chinese style hotel overseas. I think Chinese will find this hotel interesting as they may not even find a hotel like this in Shanghai!
