“2nd visit to the hotel”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Revisiting the hotel in Dec 2013 and again, am pleased with the services rendered by the staff there and the Manager Mr. BenQ.

One of the housekeeping staff (named DoDo) actually folded a 'towel dog' for us with a greeting note, was really surprised by the sweet gesture.

Superb hotel.. Love their spacious room and comfy bed! And the Platinum Mall is just across the road! Its walking distance to Central World and the Siam Sq.

Its a walk to the BTS but there food stall and shops along the way to the BTS.

Will definitely return again!

Glow hotel is in a great area located across the street from the Platinum mall and above Shibuya 19 mall. We had a great stay. The staff was attentive and willing to help. When we checked in at 6PM we learned we had arrived during annual air conditioner service meaning no A/C until 7PM. The staff was very apologetic and included free breakfast to soften the blow. We stepped out for dinner and when we returned, we learned the staff had gone to our rooms the minute the A/C came back on and made sure the rooms were cool when we got back.

Rooms are very spacious with a comfortable king size bed, multiple outlets at the desk and a huge bathroom with walk in shower and high quality toiletries.

The rooftop pool is a welcome oasis.

If you want something that's not over priced but delivers great value, then this is the place. The rooms are clean, it has the most comfortable beds in Bangkok. It's situated in the heart of the shopping areas. Across the road you have Pantip Plaza and Fashion. Electronics and fashion everywhere. But if you don't mind doing some exploring, then head out the front facing the main road, turn left and you have access to the little markets dotted in and around this street. Don't be afraid to walk in the alley's, as they have bargins galore for the girls. You will also find the best wanton noodle cafe in Bangkok, easily found by the que outside and the guy on the front of the shop doing the cooking. Don't be surprised to have to wait for a table, once you've tried them, you'll know why. The whole area has awesome food and shopping, much of it within walking distance, MBK is a 50-70 baht taxi away and so is Nana Plaza. Trust me, this is an awesome place to stay with so much to offer.

Room Tip: "Corner suites are large and sunny" and you can swap the sofa with the sitter at the end o...

Stayed at the Glow for several nights. The room was clean and nice. We were satisfied with the services provided. Wifi was good, breakfast was good. Hotel staff were helpful. It's also near the Pratunam market if you want to buy stuff.

Located across Platinum mall and above a shopping mall, Shibuya 19. It is a great stay, the hotel staff always willing to help and their smile does not seem to fade. Great customer service.

The room was spacious considering that it accommodated a king-sized bed and a lounge sofa, yet it still have space to roam around.

Other than walking around the Platinum to Central World Mall, we commute by taxi to Chinatown and Chatuchak Market as the BTS is not near. Not a problem to us.

There are a few massage shops just a few lanes besides the hotel. Great way to ease the tired and aching legs.

I would definitely return to this hotel if the price is right. However, I noticed that the hotel does not have rooms that have 2 queen or king-sized beds. It would be great if they had, then we would be able to bring our 2 kids along.

Good hotel with friendly staffs. Rooms are clean and relatively spacious. The air-con is very powerful and good for people who like coldness.

Hotel nearby has many shopping malls, especially the Platinum Mall is just foots away.

Only set back is the hotel breakfast which lacks of creativity as the buffet spreads are 80% the same stuffs during my 5 days stay there. However, it is still worth staying over.
