“Glow Hotel”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Was there recently and found location excellent. The room is fairly large and clean. Kudos to house keeping. Shopping, food and services all within a decent walking distance. Service staff was very helpful and spoke a fair level of English. There's one gentleman named BENQ who is an excellent ambassdor for Thailand's tourist industry. He friendly, engaging and knowledgable. He also assisted us with liaising with our travel agent who forgot to send pick-up to the airport and ensured that the transport arrived before leaving bidding us farewell. Thanks BENQ.
Only one very little complaint. Ample pillows were provided but need a few firm ones.

In summary, Glow will be my hotel of choice when visiting Bangkok.

Glow has a nice, new feeling about the rooms. The bathrooms are nice and spacious and the service is truly exemplary. However, the downsides to this hotel are that the breakfast options are really limited. If you're vegetarian, then its worse. No cheese, only white bread, just chocolate cereal, no cappuccinos. They need to up the quality and options of their breakfast big time. Also, if you request for a third bed in the room, which of course you pay for, the roll away is extremely uncomfortable. You kind of feel cheated, because you're paying as much as the other two who get the comfortable bed, while you get a creak, uneven, creaky roll away with a super thin mattress. T

A pleasant 3 day stay at glow pratunam which is located beside pratunam market, on top of shibuya (new wholesale mall) and 5 mins walk frm e huge platinum mall(shopping!). There's a mcdonald that opens 24hr downstairs and transportation is pretty accessible.

Stayed in a big and spacious room on the 19th floor w clean toilet and amenities. The ambience was pleasant and cosy for us to rest well after a long day of shopping. Good service from the hotel staffs (from concierge to bell boy) and they dont ask for tips! But do more research on the night activities in bkk as the staffs are not able to give much recommendations for you. Breakfast is reasonable given the price we've paid. Interestingly, lots of singaporeans and hongkongers stayed in this hotel (personal observation) :)


Could be better:
Only soft pillows available (subjective)
Limited Electrical port
Limited tv channels

Stayed here for 4 nights in Janurary with my husband. The rooms are excellent - spacious and clean and everything is brand new. The beds were AMAZING! Goose down pillows and quilts - total heaven!! We were on the 19th floor and the view was so good! The buffet breakfast was good too, 6 hot food options, egg station, fruit and a few pastries. There's a nice pool and gym but we never actually got around to using them! The massive fashion platinum mall is across the road (2000 shops?!?!). Only downside is the hotel is a good 10-15 min walk to the nearest skytrain station (which can be very far with backpacks in the bangkok heat). Excellent staff and services. Highly reccomend for a lux stay

We were only at Glow for 2 nights, and it was the first night for the very first time in Thailand. It was a very soft landing. It's close to everything, there's a lot of restaurants and shopping around and the staff is super nice and were very attentive to our every wish. The room was HUFE, it had both a shower and a tub, the bed was the best I ever slept on, and it was an excellent way to kick off the vacation!
p.s - the roome service menu was in a very reasonable prices.

We stayed at the Glow for 2 nights and had a great experience. We are trying to work out how we can replicate the comfort of the bed back home, as they are unbelievably good and you will could sleep forever. Rooms are very clean, well designed, and the showers are powerful. The only minus is the choice of tv for when you want to relax in your room. For Westerners, the tv is truly awful, and an HBO, movie, and BBC news channel would make a real difference. Breakfast is fine although we were chased to sign for the bill before we had finished. That said, the overall experience was pretty good and the staff, location, beds, and good value make it an excellent place to stay.
