I last visited this hotel about a year and half ago when it was the Sofitel. As others have commented this hotel has been rebranded and undergone a makeover as a result. Sofitel was definately your more classic style 5* where as Pullman aims to be more modern and contemporary - think all white and chrome, with trendy uniforms/clothing for staff etc!
Having stayed in a Club room on both occasions, I couldn't fault anything really. The Club lounge is well located and one of the best I've seen in a long time. Serves a good breakfast and a wide range of snacks and treats for afternoon tea and Happy hour. Club rooms have not undergone a makeover like the ordinary rooms, they've retained there more classic look. One complaint is that the hotel website says that Club rooms offer iPod docking stations etc - not a sight of one in my room at all. Club room was spacious with a good sized bathroom with large walkin shower along side bath etc. Be warned though, the beds are rock hard and have some of the hardest mattresses I've ever slept on - that said never had a problem going to sleep, was always the waking up that was the issue! Wifi in the room was super fast, really impressed by that.
Service from all the staff I came into contact was very good and no issues there. Hotel has a great location where you're walking distance from the nightlife of Silom/Patpong and close to a Skytrain station for getting arond the city. Whilst the pool area is small, never had a problem getting a lounger there.
As with most hotels in Asia, they're catering for an Asian market so the breakfast buffett (In the main restaurant) reflects this. Although plenty of western products available, don't expect decent bacon or sausages!
More than happy recommending this hotel as a place to stay if you want it as a base to explore the city with the odd morning/afternoon by the pool.
