“Comfortable hotel in shopping area”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Glow Hotel can be reached from the international airport by cab (250-400 baht, 30 mins) or by the Express train (90 Baht, 40 mins) plus 10 mins walk. Would not recommend the latter option if u have a luggage to drag, because the pathway is not very smooth.

Hotel is located on the upper floors of Shibuya shopping mall. Room was of the right size, modern and clean. Price is decent, with nearby areas of cheap shopping, places to eat and upmarket shopping malls. Not near the BTS but could travel by cab (use meter of course).

If there is one thing you do in Bangkok, it's get a good nights sleep in a safe environment. This hotel starts on the 7th floor of a shopping mall with a pool and restaurant. We arrived around midnight, cost about 300 BAHTS from the airport. We were upgraded to a larger corner room on the 16th floor which was lovely. The room was spotless, the bathroom was great and the toiletries they provide are top notch, all full size bottles so no squeezing a packet! The bed and pillows were our favourite in any hotel we have ever tried. The view of the skyline from our bed was amazing, the convenience of being able to control the AC and lights from our nighttable was great, free water was useful and the pool was always quiet. The area was right downtown and there were lots of shopping, market stalls, street food and a food court nearby. The breakfast at the hotel had a great selection, couldn't have asked for more. Upon meeting other traveller's throughout our trip, we sent them to Glow as they were flying out of Bangkok. Thank you for the safe and great night's sleep GLOW!

Convenient central location, contemporary styling, efficient check in/out, clean and decent sized spacious rooms, very comfortable beds, the quota of 4 water bottles/day was thoughtful, average breakfast with limited choices. Wifi is painfully slow and takes forever. This hotel's room rates are great value for money.

Love the location, it's situated on top of a shopping mall. Directly opposite Platinum mall. Able to walk to central world, erawan shrine and bts from the hotel, probably a 10-15min walk.

Hotel room is very clean and spacious. Bed is very comfy! Complimentary wifi for guests. Decent breakfast buffet. Will definitely stay in this hotel again though the price is slightly on the high side.

Stayed at Glow Pratunam for 4 nights early March 2014. Everything about it was sensational!The staff were lovely, the room was gorgeous with a great view of the street with floor to ceiling windows, excellent bathroom and the best location in Bangkok for street food and markets. The bed was brilliant and so were the pillows, like sleeping on a cloud! My only downside was that I asked for a room away from the lifts and got one almost next to them so there was some noise with people coming home at night. Other than that, a brilliant hotel!
