“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

My friends and I visited Glow last September and we got the triple sharing room. It was a comfortable room where they put 3 huge single sized beds in. The toilet was clean and spacious. It was a short 10 minutes walk from the airport-city link. The staff were very helpful and took good care of us. There was something wrong with our lights and the technicians were quick to respond to our calls. The bell boy made sure that we got into cabs that travel by meter. Kudos to Glow!

In a tour of Thailand which covered North, South, East and West, this was by far the most comfortable and best hotel I stayed in. It was the most expensive (£70 a night) but was easily worth it. Polite staff on entry, a brilliant comfortable room more then big enough for 3 travellers, a nice swimming pool area. Did not try the food, but it looked reasonable. A friend got ill on another part of the trip, so returned to Bangkok to stay here in comfort until he got better. would highly recommend it. Is above a shopping area which include a Starbucks and McDonald's and is within a 5 minute walk of the Central World Plaza.

Only negative is the distance from Khao San Road, however, we went their at the end of the holiday and stayed closer. Ideal for a 1/2 night stay after a long flight before continuing your holiday.

if you need or want to be in pratunam (for shopping?), glow pratunam is your best choice!

from the moment we arrived, the bell boy taking care of our luggage and welcoming us, directing us to the elevators (hotel lobby is on level 7 of shibuya mall), served tea while waiting for them to sort out the rooms, the entire check in experience is first class.

rooms are large and well designed. really liked the closet connecting bathroom and bedroom. they gave us plenty of bottled water (4 per day, 2 in the fridge). and all the usual toiletries you need. bed was comfy and pillows adequate. not much of a view from our windows facing west, but you can still see a view of bangkok whichever room you get since we are right in the middle of the city in a tall building. we did not try the pool or sauna but it looked very good (on level 8).

the area is known for bargain shopping, for clothing and bags etc. we found that pratunam markets were a little hard to navigate and too crowded for comfort. so we ended up buying most of our stuff at platinum mall (5 mins away). you can also cross the river and get to the central world, siam paragon, even mbk (but that would be a 30 mins walk). the only inconvenience is really the lack of public transit (bts skytrain). for airport transfer, if you only have a small luggage, you can still take the airport train to phaya thai or ratchaparok station and take a taxi from there.

tip: meter taxis are hard to find here. unless you are fluent in thai? so get the hotel bell boy to flag one down for you and insist on meter fare. no tuk tuks, unless you are into the experience of course. even then, once is enough.

Hotel is very conveniently located, opposite Platinum Fashion Mall. On the same side of the hotel, you can walk to Pratunam morning and night market easily. The famous wanton noodle/intestines stall is just located on the left lane of the hotel. Mcdonalds just downstairs and open 24 hours.

Staff are friendly and recommended some of the popular restaurants /food stall to us and guided us the directions in details. They even reminded us to take good care of our monies and passport while we are doing our shopping. Breakfast at the cafe was reasonable with slight changes of dishes everyday, but the spread is more than enough.

I have highly recommended this excellent hotel to my family members and friends. Comfortable hotel, friendly staff and most conveniently located, this can only be found at Glow Pratunam.

stayed here for 5D4N. a very good stay. room was big and beds were comfortable! the 2 beds joined tgt can even accommodate up to 4 pax! the only thing is i wished they have more tv channels as they do not have HBO or nice english movie channels..

location was good as well. just opposite grand diamond which is next to platinum mall. just walked across the bridge and within 5 mins can reach platinum!

the staff are very nice and friendly too. and even though you have to take 2 lifts to reach your hotel room, i feel it's very safe. as the lift at ground floor is only accessible via one door at night, there are hotel staff stationed there all night so we feel very safe. and you have to reach level 7 hotel lobby before taking another lift to reach your hotel room, therefore don't need to worry there are people following you back. hahahaha!

the service was great as well. the bellboys were efficient in sending our luggages up and also assisting us to get a cab and inform the cab driver which airline we taking so that he can drop us at the correct entrance of the airport.

for the price we paid, we are very satisfied with the hotel. it's a 5 star hotel at a 3.5 star price! hope it stays this way! will be back soon!

After a long trip from Ireland, Glow was our first stop and we received a lovely welcome. We really appreciated the warm welcome with the complimentary drink. Our room was very spacious and really nice with a great view. The pool was lovely and the restaurant food was delicious and reasonable. I would suggest booking breakfast with the room because it's 350 baht per person. A tad expensive compared to the restaurant but it is an 'all you can eat buffet.' All staff we came in contact with we're very helpful and friendly. Also, ideally placed for shoppers as it's very close to several shopping centres along with chaotic street markets. Couldn't recommend this place enough.

While waiting for check-in, we were served some refreshing tea which taste yummy! Check in was pretty fast. Room are clean nice & big enough for 3pax. The bed was so comfort that i feel like bringing back home LOL! The only thing that need to adjust is that the aircon was damn cold even i on the temp to 32degree!!!! Interior of the hotel deco was so beautiful designed! Staffs was so friendly & helpful to all my request esp Beau. Overall, it is a must to stay here when u are in bkk & wanna shop without a need to waste transport fare(because all shopping paradise is just a foot steps away)!!
