My husband and I stayed at Glow Hotel over a weekend in June. It was a wonderful experience. Although we arrived early at 10am, the reception staff found an empty room for us that we could check into immediately. It was on a smoking floor and she even took the time to bring us up to take a look and make sure we liked it. There was no smell at all! The room was spacious and comfortable. Loved the idea of having the wardrobe between the room and the bathroom and being able to open it from both sides. Very convenient getting dressed.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful. From the concierge on the first floor (hotel lobby is on 7th floor of Shibuya 19 shopping mall) to the staff at reception and cafe to the housekeeping. The latter even made the cutest elephant out of towels on our bed! It was a welcome sight to come back to the room to.
Enjoyed the cafe breakfast as well. We did hear some people say the breakfast didn't have much choices, but we found the spread pretty good. Especially when you consider the fact that the hotel price is so reasonable! There were hot dishes (potatoes, noodles, rice, congee, sausages), cereal, toast and fruit.
There is also foot massage at the hotel lobby. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to try it out as we were too busy shopping!
Location is fantastic if you're planning to do a lot of shopping. Pratunam has wholesale shops all around downstairs. And Platinum Mall is just across the road. Food is also readily available. The pasta stall at the foodcourt of Shibuya 19 is really good too! Although the BTS is rather a long walk away, it is easy to just hop into a cab or tuk-tuk to get anywhere.
