“A good copy of W-Hotel. Good location too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

The price is definitely more ex than the usual bkk hotel around the area but it was a well deserved indulgence. The location is perfect for those who wants to comb Platinum mall as it is just opposite the mall. It is very new and the interior are modern (free Wifi!) and reminds me of W-Hotel (the pink version). The hotel room was spacious and comes with iphone charging pod. You can actually go through to the bathroom from the cabinet side. The bed was plushy too!

The breakfast is also very scrumptious and the service was good. If u prefer local food, the famous wantan mee is just around the corner.

If u stayed thru Sunday, the hotel actually has some pasar malam shops just oustide their drive thru....I know it's organised by Glow coz the tentage is PINK! =)

The only drawback is perhaps it being too new - taxi driver do not know where is this hotel, thus we have problems getting cabs.

I have the privilege to be able to view the hotel facilities and the rooms via aguided tour by their sales manager. I must say the rooms are chic and spacious. I had stayed in the deluxe room for 2 nights together with my friend. we stayed in room 1715

Pros:
the spacious area and a couch to rest at

the soft and super comfy bed that is way better than centara grand beds.

the big and spacious toilet with american sized toilet bowl

large amount of colorful shampoo, bath gel and hand wash as well as other amenities.

the toilet that was amazing spacious to shower in

the wardrobe that can be accessed both in the toilet and out the toilet
the bathrobes:)

the staff was friendly especially 1 staff that was so detailed in her work. my friends and i went for a morning swim, she walked by the pool and hand us cold mineral waters for consumption:) kudos

another staff, an egg chef handed us our omelettes and chat with us (thats the good thing about small boutique hotels:) specialized service

Cons:
the aircon was so cold even though we adjust the temp to 28 degrees. whenever we came back
the floor was freezing to even step on:(

the steam room in the gym was out of order and had a terrible smell.

the food spread was ok, not fantastic..

Room Tip: for honeymooners, choose the glow suite, it can be open up to the bathroom via the bedroom

1st impression and the last lingers on, our stay duration from 10 to 13apr13 was indeed well looked after by the impeccable and cheerful staff of this hotel, overall experience was awesome. The f&b manager mr sajcha and sous chef mr arty and his team members were very forthcoming, proactive and takes pride in their service attitude! Ample smiles, approachable and sincere always, please also convey my heartfelt appreciation to your other teammembers: victor, janny, avie, pingpong and Charles. Rooms were very cleaned simple and spacious, gym n pool were superb. All in all, though it's a 31/2 star hotel. I would sincerely rate your staff n hotel equivalent to a 5 star hotel! Well done guys! Kudos for a job well done! Keep it up!:) highly recommendable, will certainly come back and keep my friends and relatives posted about your hotel!

I stayed in the hotel from 04/04/13 to 08/04/13 with my loved one. An excellent location to the main big malls. Not forgetting it is also near to the famous wanton mee stall and is just next to the hotel. The staffs are very friendly and even suggest places worth to visit during the stay. Special thanks to one of staff name Benq. He is very patience and friendly. Room is clean and spacious but there is still room of improvement (eg: to clear the bins on every housekeeping completed). I did not face much problem with the taxi as I am fortunate to meet honest drivers throughout my stay. I even manage to know one of the honest driver who agree to pick us during our future stay in Bangkok. I had a wonderful and pleasant stay in Glow. I would highly recommend this hotel to my friend. Well done.

A nice hotel which streches from the 7th to the 20+ floor. The entrance is a bit hidden at the side of the buidling. The pool is at the 8th floor and has sun until about 1 AM. quite small and a bit too warm for my tast.
The hotel is mostly frequented by young people and so is the staff -very young and acutallay very nice and helpful
The only drawback is the location as you need to walk about 15 minutes to the next skytrain or take a taxi - but there is the traffic jam almost at any time in front of the hotel. oterwise enjoy the stay

This is my 2nd time stay at Glow! Recommended it to my friends as I had a great experience during the previous stay last year.
It never fail our expectation and as usual, provide excellent service!
All my friends are pleased & satified with the location, staff & facilities of this hotel.
Best of all, one of my friend has lost her shopping items in a taxi from Siam Paragon.
We contacted the customer service at Siam paragon and managed to find the taxi driver.
The lost items were found and sent back to hotel but we have left Bangkok.
The hotel contacted my friend and informing her regarding the lost and found items, even to take a photo to ensure it is the correct one.
Really impress with the exclusive services from customer service in Siam paragon, taxi driver and hotel!! Thumb up Thai peoples!
We have come to the agreement for the next trip Bangkok, we will be staying here AGAIN!!

this hotel is awesome. very clean, sophisticated and the location is prime. close to platinum mall central world plaza. it can be reached just by walk. and also close to other big malls around siam area.

everyhing just perfect. the only problem is the lobby is not on the ground floor. 7th floor if i'm not mistaken. ground floor to 6th floor is shopping center called Shibuya9.

on the ground floor of this hotel you can have starbucks coffee and McDonalds.

i really enjoyed my staying at this hotel, recommended!

Room Tip: ask for a room with platinum mall view. it has better view than the other side
