“Modern, clean, affordable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

The good things:
* New wing of hotel has nice, large modern rooms.
* Breakfast buffet in the morning is cheap (180 Baht) and has many things to choose from. I'd recommend paying each day rather than paying in the room rate, especially if traveling solo.
* There's a small, but full service grocery store right next door. Pickup stuff for your refrigerator.
* The pool that the hotel contracts to use is in the building across the street on the 9th floor, but it's huge with swim lanes and outdoor. You'll need to get a signed slip from the hotel reception. This may also be considered a bad thing for some.
* 5 minute walk to Skytrain
* There's a pay washer and dryer on the sixth floor of the old (original) wing of the hotel

The not so good:
* The hotel walls are thin. Couple this with a DVD library that you can borrow from and in-room DVD players, and guests tend to crank up the volume. I had to ask to change rooms because the person in the next room watched movies on full blast until 2 am and ignored requests from the hotel to turn down the volume.
* Water pressure and temperature in the shower in the first room I was in wasn't good. Weak and didn't get warm. Room just down the hall was better, however.
* Difficult to control the AC temperature. It had a thermostat, but it didn't seem to matter what it was set to. Room was either freezing or too warm if you didn't turn it on and off yourself.

Room Tip: Rooms in new wing are a little more expensive, but bigger and nicer. View is also much better.

The Glow is fine for a short stay (we stayed two nights in Nov. 2012), but our room smelled a little sour. Actually the city smells that way too, so I'm not sure the hotel could have controlled it. The A/C worked fine. The bed was comfortable. The room was kind of posh, but not really -- sort of ikea posh. The corridor leading to our room seemed dingy like a cheap motel, and smelled sour as well. Noise was minimal. The buffet breakfast was ok, but nothing special.

I love this hotel, especially the prime location. 3 minutes walk away from BTS Chong Nonsi or 7 minutes walk away from the Sala Daeng station area, where all the night markets, clubs, restaurants activities are located.
Hotel check-in and check out could not be faster. I was literally in within 2 minutes and out in less than 1 minute. They knew my name even before I said it. Staffs were friendly and always carry a smile.
Hotel room is clean and AC really strong (I detest weak ACs). Room for three is spacious and bright. The only thing I want to forewarn is that if you have a third person in the room, be ready to sleep on their triangular shaped sofa bed. It fits one but may not be your liking if you like softer bed.
Bathroom is clean, spacious and well kept. Again, the only thing I want to forewarn is that the bathroom shower wall consist of a plexiglass material so it's semi see through. Might not be a good idea if you are shy.
Surrounding area is perfect, lots of street food, restaurants, a 7-eleven down on the main road and even the escalator up to the BTS station is positioned perfectly when you walk out onto the main road.
If you a want fast, reasonable priced and conveniently located massage parlor, try the Heritage hotel massage parlor located 2 minutes away.
I literally have no complaint about this hotel, not to sound picky and the reason why I didn't give it an Excellent rating is because there are rooms for improvement for the covered walk ways (which looks like a maze) between the 2 hotel tower buildings. Apparently they covered it and added soothing music but it reeks really badly as though the walk way was built on an open sewer. Oh well, a small trade off but Glow Trinity is definitely a GREAT hotel.

Room Tip: If you have 3 people, be ready to sleep on their sofa bed.

I stayed at Glow Trinity twice during my last stay in Bangkok, before heading down south and before going back home. Glow is located in the Silom area, close to shopping, dining and entertainment. There is plenty of good street food as well as more high end restaurants just a few minutes on foot from the hotel. The BTS sky train is 2 minutes walk from the hotel, which makes it convenient when going to other parts of the city for sightseeing etc. Taxi is also easy to catch from the hotel. Me and my parents were well recieved by the front desk staff. Quick and efficient check-in and check-out. The rooms felt clean and fresh and the interior is modern. The hotel is comprised in two buildings, during our first stay we stayed in the part that i think is more new.
I was very suprised about the smell in my room, felst like something coming from the pipes. This was a bit disturbing but it dissapeared once i turned the a/c on. The a/c was also of the noisier kind. These are my only complaints about Glow.
During our second stay we got rooms in the supposedly older part of the hotel. There the aircon was not at all noisy and also no smell in the room.
There wasnt a huge selection on the breakfast buffet, but still big enough to satisfy me and my parents. Actually, for the rate that we paid, this hotel proved to be a real gem. A big plus for the staff in the front desk who were kind and helpful at all times.

I will probably book Glow Trinity next time i am in bkk.

I stayed at this hotel for an extended period so I had a good perspective on everything the hotel had to offer.

The Glow Trinity Silom hotel is a nice boutique hotel in the middle of the Silom business district in Bangkok. The Chong Nonsi BTS station is within a 5 minutes walk and you can easily get to the Siam shopping area within a 5 minute or so ride on the skytrain. The MRT subway is also easily accessible being one BTS stop away at Sala Daeng, which is also the station where a newly remodeled mall, Silom Complex, is located. The hotel is located at the entrance to a bustling street market during the weekdays with a large number of vendors selling everything from famed Thai desserts/fish cakes to clothing, being aptly named the Soi "Lalai Sup" market meaning "money draining street." There is also a small-ish and unremarkable food court during the weekdays under the hotel called the "Trinity Food Mall." A few buildings down there is also an older supermarket. The location, although a bit difficult to find initially as it's down a small soi (street), is the ultimate of convenience.

All of the staff were more than willing to help at all times. Thank you in particular to Khun Aaron, Jeng, and Por for the excellent service from the time we arrived to the last minute we departed. Khun Por was particularly excellent, selling us an excellent tour to Ayutthaya and also inquiring about me when he found out that I had suffered a small bout of food poisoning on my trip (he even offered to call a taxi to transport me to the hospital). Whenever we would be sitting in the beautiful lobby, he would offer us glasses of tropical iced tea. All the staff spoke excellent English as this hotel is aimed towards foreigners (although we communicated with the staff in Thai).

We ate the included breakfast buffet everyday at "The Foodie," the hotel restaurant. Because we stayed for an extended period, the food became repetitive but was consistently high quality. Omelets made to order were always available. As a suggestion, please add more Thai food to the breakfast other than the porridge, fried rice, and noodle dish (perhaps adding ปาท่องโก๋ (Thai donuts) or an additional soup/curry. And maybe some traditional Thai desserts). Also, the bacon was nontraditional and rather unappetizing...they resembled bricks of processed pork like fried spam. Chicken sausage was also rather tasteless but besides these 2 staples, much of the other food was excellent. The fruit was always very fresh. We also ate dinner at "The Foodie" and I must say the traditional Thai food is one of the best we've ever had. Not cheap, but the quality and taste was amazing.

In contrast, neighboring restaurants were just mediocre, especially the Chinese Claypot rice place. We did not try the nearby Japanese ramen place, the Isaan (northeastern Thai) restaurant, or the Peony Tea Lounge.

Rooms were very trendy with a flat screen TV, Ipod docks, and a DVD player. Excellent a/c (and sometimes too excellent). Very comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a good shower. However, the water pressure became weak every few seconds which is a minor annoyance. The shower also lacked a door, which meant that water would often spill onto the bathroom floor. Once again, minor annoyance. Our power did get completely cut once, but was easily fixed with a phone call to the lobby and a quick visit from the hotel engineer. Free wi-fi was consistently excellent and the available computers in the lobby were a useful amenity (only one computer in the lobby is a sit-down computer, the other 4 are stand-up terminals).

Main complaint with the rooms is that the sound-proofing is rather poor. We could hear people walking in the halls at all hours of the night. We were also awoken once early in the morning by our next door neighbor (we had the type of room with the door that can adjoin into another room) and we heard every single word of her argument over the phone with her boyfriend (and wished she would hurry up and break up so we could go back to sleep). Also, no views in the main building. Our room, 421, looked out onto a depressing neighboring apartment building so the curtains were usually kept closed. Because the curtains were dark, this limited the amount of natural sunlight in the room. As a suggestion, please consider adding another, lighter curtain that would still ensure privacy but allow sunlight to get into the room.

There is a small "laundromat" aka a washer and dryer in the main building on the 6th floor that charges reasonable prices....convenient for extended stay guests.

Swimming pool across the street on the 9th floor is excellently maintained, with an amazing view of the Bangkok skyscrapers. It appeared to be a 25m lap pool complete with a deep end/backstroke flags and separated into large lanes (4), so it is a lap swimmer's paradise. The pool may not be as appropriate for guests with younger children. Despite the excellent pool, however, the gym and rest of the facilities are lackluster. Old cardio equipment/weights in a smallish room. Locker rooms did have a sauna, but it is also showing it's age with rusty lockers and a dark atmosphere...but everything worked. There is also a tennis court (not used) and outdoor running track (we always found it too hot to run outside). Note that these fitness amenities are in the Trinity Complex building across the street...not in the main hotel complex.

The hotel is constantly improving, and now has a new "premier" wing in the back that I might be interested in staying in next time. Definitely recommend the hotel and looking forward to staying here again on my next trip to Bangkok.

Room Tip: Higher rooms in the main building may have better views (or at least get more sunlight).

the hotel is great , the resturant is wonderful , the staff are very helpful , but..... with no signs on Silom Road it is very difficult to find . The local taxi drivers had no idea where this hotel is , they were constantly asking us how to get there (?) . we arrived on the fantastic BTS train service from the airport then spent 30 mins trying to find the joint .It will only take some signage on Silom Road to solve this problem , what a pain in the bum. The food in the hotel is very very good , english newspapers are available but there are none on display at reception , so ask .Internet cafe is fine , free wifi .All in all a pleasant & restful hotel , our room was huge , the bathroom fine , all we wanted for a 5 night stay . . we will stay again & recommend to any expats that ask .

Was a tad perturbed after booking a room on discovering this hotel was right on the fringe of the red light district on Bangkok. Nevertheless it was a safe and enjoyable stay. Smiley staff, clean room (although the ipod dock wasn't working) with a market right at the doorstep. The Skytrain station is a 5-minute walk away and the malls are all within easy reach. The only problem we had was that the taxi drivers were not quite sure of the location of the hotel even after providing them the address.
