We stayed for a few nights in May 2013 and enjoyed our time at this hotel.
The location is good, on a "quiet-ish" end of Silom road and within a 5-minute walk to the closest BTS train station. Most of this time will be spent trying to cross Silom Road.
Red light, green light. No-one cares... :-)
The hotel used to be another brand of the Accor conglomerate, but was "jazzed up" and re-named as a Pullman. What the "G" stands for, nobody could tell me.
The lobby is funky in a nightclubby loungy sort of way. Staff in dark jeans, T-shirts and modern jackets are roaming around engaging the guests in conversation, eager to help with anything that might be needed. In the evenings a cute female DJ is playing tunes from a desk in the lobby. All very cool. Perhaps not the right scene for "old" people.
The rooms seemde to have been spray painted in white from top to bottom and have a very fresh feel. If you look very closely, you can see a few rough edges and that this was definately a spruce-up of an older property.
All necessities (apart from an ironing board) are provided. Ipad docking station is there as is free and speedy internet in the rooms.
There is a smallish pool with nice views of the city skyline, an adequate gym and a very nice bar by the pool where they make some mean margeritas.
There are several restaurants in the hotel, none of which we have tried during this stays.
A friend of mine who is a chef in Bangkok ensures me that the French style restaurant on the top floor of the Pulmann is very good. Well, perhaps next time.
