“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

God knows how many times we fell for professional photography of hotel rooms but this establishment delivers. Dated is not the word you would use here as modern touches are liberally employed in its decor. The room is very spacious too with possibly the softest beds i have ever slept on in my many holidays. it comes with an iPod dock too. The little touches really do make a difference.

Located across the Pratunam malls and a 10min walk from Central World and Siam Paragon, you are well set for shopping. Truly one of the best value hotels in BKK for me

We stayed 2 nights in November 2012. This is our third time to Bangkok and we mainly came to do shopping before we fly back to London. We wanted to stay near Pratunam area as we plan to do most of the shopping in from the Pratunam market. The location of this hotel is fantastic. Its opposite the platinum fashion mall. Look out for McDonalds broadly opposite platinum fashion mall and the hotel is above the McDonalds. Its a new hotel opened just few months ago and its very clean and spacious. We were on the 14th floor and the view of bangkok is great from here. The breakfast choices are good. We are vegeterians and they had decent choices. Overall, great hotel, great location for shopping, very friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants to make most of shopping.

The lobby is on the 7th floor, our room is on the 10th. Comfortable bed and blankets. Room is very functional. Service from check- in, housekeeping and restaurant are superb. Breakfast is delicious. Great value for money. Location is in front of platinum fashion mall. We arrived early at the hotel and was immediately granted early check in at 930am without having to ask. I will definitely stay here again next time.

First entry to the lobby. Surprised by the welcome drink. Very good mix under the hot weather of Bangkok. The next is the universal power point in the room. This give me a ease of the phone charger. The room is well decorated and they are new!!. The location of the hotel is just opposite of the platinum fashion mall. 15 mins walk from the centralworld. Definitely the best hotel I stayed frommy 4th Visit to Bangkok.

Stayed 9th to 13th November and can't speak highly enough of this hotel. The staff were very willing and helpful and the rooms wonderful. I so wanted to take those pillows home with me, they were the best. The breakfast was plentiful and most enjoyable. We had a meal outside one night and we all (seven of us travelling together) thoroughly enjoyed the pasta. Food and drinks very reasonable priced for a hotel. Even better we were steps away from the early morning wholesale clothing market which starts outside the front door. Of course, Platinum Mall is across the street and Guy Grossi restaurant and short stroll towards Sukhumvit Rd.

Enjoyed the welcome drink while checking in, i think it was rosella juice? It was refreshing! The staff are really friendly and ready to assist you. Always greeting you when you move in and out of the hotel.
Hotel lobby is very cosy with a modern feel, with a stairway leading to the nice swimming pool 1 level above.
Stayed in a room on the 14th floor. The room is spacious and the bed was awesome. Very comforting for tiring legs! Has a 2 seater couch, wifi and a radio player with iphone docking.
Located above Shibuya19 and close to the Pratunam market and right opposite Platinum Fashion Mall and Pantip Plaza which is great for all your shopping needs.
The famous wanton noodles in 19 Petchaburi is just at the street by the hotel. Massages available at 15 Petchaburi till midnight.
Some drivers are beginning to notice this place, however if they do not know just direct them to opposite Platinum Fashion mall.
All in all, great experience!

You should have the address of the hotel with you when you arrive in Bangkok, and maybe have it marked on a map. Most of the cab drivers I came across didn't know it as it's very new. Upon checkin they give you a little brochure with the address in Thai, which is quite helpful.

Glow is above a mall and starts on the 7th floor, which was a novelty for me. It's in a neighborhood great for shopping and not at all bad for good street food. The rooms are very clean, modern, sleek and with the most comfortable beds I have come across in Thailand.

The wifi, AC, TV are all good. Room service is prompt and delicious. Breakfast is fun and has plenty of nice done options. The pool is great too.

Cabs to all the major places that you want to go are very reasonable. Hail your own cab for the best fare. I found that when the doorman hailed me one it was a fixed rate that was always more expensive than the metered rate.

As they are a new hotel they are ironing out some wrinkles. There were some charges when we checked out that we had to dispute, so maybe pay for drinks/food as you go and save the receipts. They also found our reservation confusing and wanted to charge us for a few nights that we hadn't actually reserved. None of which we had to pay for, but we spent a fair amount of time dealing with.

For a couple of night in Bangkok this place is great, comfortable and inexpensive.
