We stayed 4D3Ns at this hotel, overall experience was really great & enjoyable!

Pro :
1) Great location for shoppers, this hotel itself is located in a shopping mall! The hotel lobby is at the 7th floor in Shibuya mall.
It is right opposite Platinum Fashion Mall (the wholesales shopping mall), and is next to the Pratunam Market. If your purpose to Bkk is shopping, this hotel location will suit you 100%.
However, the walking distance to BTS (Ratchathewi station) take about 15mins~20mins, not really convenience if you want to take train to others tourist spots.
2) The room & toilet is very clean & spacious. I love the bed! It is really comfortable.
3) Staffs in this hotel are great, fast service & they always give you a smiling face whenever you approach them! Thumb Up!
4) Breakfast from the hotel restaurant taste good & buffet spread is nice, but the variety of food can be improve further if the hotel willing to add in more variety of choose.
5) Wi-Fi is fast and available in the room, need to get the password from reception
6) There are connection rooms available. Can make request if you want the joining room and it is suitable if travel with families.

Con :
As I mentioned in the pros, the location are perfect for shoppers.
However, if you wish to travel around BKK by BTS, the walking distance to BTS (nearer Ratchathewi station) take about 15mins~20mins, not really convenience unless you wish to take cabs.

Conclusion : My purpose to BKK is always SHOPPING! So, for sure I will return to this hotel for my next visit to BKK.

Just have to say thank you to all Glow's Staff for the incredible journey we had at this hotel.
The hotel is located in a central area, the building is a mall, then from the 7th floor(where is the reception) till the 22nd floor you have Glow Pratunam, and is just 10 min walking far from Skytrain and close to the shopping area (MBK/Siam ecc ecc).
As soon as we checked in the girl at the reception, told us that we were upgraded to a suit, our room numb was 1117, and was just fantastic, very clean and bed so comfortable.
Free internet at the reception available 24/7, two PC are always available, Breakfast you can get almost everything you want.
I do recommend this hotel to everyone.
regards

This hotel is located right opposite Platinum Fashion Mall, and is next to the infamous Pratunam Market. It offers shoppers the convenience. You can start your shopping from 6 am, yes, you didn't get me wrong, 6 am. The morning market surrounding the hotel in fact open at 4 am and close at 9 am. You can shop before your breakfast. After your first round of shopping, you can go back to the hotel for breakfast. Immediately after that, you may start your next round of shopping at either Platinum or Pratunam. Both open early at about 8 to 9 am but close early at about 8 pm. It is a shoppers' paradise.

The hotel put in lot of thoughts in offering the finest details to its customers. For example, the hotel provides stapler, ruler, scissor, in the room, which is not common. There is a weighing scale in the hotel lobby so that you will know if your luggage is overweight. If you still have the weight allowance, you can then go back to the shopping malls to lift another few priced garments.

I recommend this hotel to those whose prime objection is to shop, shop and shop till you drop.

Room Tip: Corner and high floor rooms are recommended.

Hotel has a tiny doorway which links to level 7 where the lobby is and will have to change to another lift to gain access to the hotel. I stayed for 5D4N, requested for late check out but was rejected, seems like it's not that true that they allow late check out like other reviews mentioned.

What I liked:
1) Rooms are really clean.
2) toilet is big
3) bed is comfortable
4) walking distance to shopping areas
5) air con temperature can be adjusted
6) u have to tap your room card before the lift brings u to your floor.
7) the guys at the ground floor, they looked so nice and sincere 24 hours a day.


What I did not like:
1) there's a receptionist with name starting with J (don't remember her name), she has a perpetual angry face whenever we asked a question. She doesn't even smile when we smiled to her when we came back to the hotel after a long day of shopping.
2) there wasn't a room for us to change or shower after our checkout, we were brought to the gym with our luggage. I would have paid for another night had I know it's like that.
3) never never eat at the food court of shibuya which is the same building as the hotel. The food is not good and u have to remember to refund your money within the same day if not the value in your card will be zero the next day.
4) tv is at a weird angle u have to turn your head if you are lying on the bed.

Overall the experience was ok, ask me if I'll come back again, most likely I will since I already knew what to expect.

everything was great. very clean room, spacious, great location & all. kudos especially to the team of bellboys/concierge staffs located at the lobby. they are friendly & definitely helpful & caring. on our last day for check out, we didn't have any transportation yet so the team helped to hail a cab. most importantly, when we're already in the cab, one of the staff knock on the window to check & ensure that we have our passports with us & didn't leave anything behind before bidding us goodbye for safe journey back home.

something that i didn't expect. a good personal touch.

will definitely stay in this hotel again.

The hotel is pretty new with bright, huge & clean rooms. It is opposite Platinuim Fashion Mall making it very convenient. There is much shopping, food & massage nearby. I personally like the wardrobe which can be opened from the bedroom as well as the bathroom. Will definitely stay here again.

Pros:
Stayed at a Deluxe room on the 18th floor with a great view of cityscape. Room was spacious, clean and housekeeping cannot be faulted. Hotel is located from 7th floor onwards above Shibuya wholesale mall. The mall is rather quiet so I am sure most people will still shop at the opposite Platinum, Centralworld, Siam Square, etc. Hotel is located along the main road so taxis and tuk tuks are not a problem.
Cons: Lack of sports channels like ESPN or Supersports. The restaurant is rather small and super crowded during the days when it was fully booked. Luckily MacDonalds was at the ground floor.
Tip: do visit Terminal 21 at Asoke, very trendy and more upscale products from local designers. Forgot to mention 2 levels of food heaven as well!
