My first trip to Bangkok again after the Covid Period. This hotel is situated right at the busy bustling street of Pathunam. Receptionists was professional and check in was a breeze. Once in the room, surprised to see the room is actually Big with a nice toilet. Most of the things are New..... seems it was being renovated recently. It will be good if all rooms have a Safe Deposit Box instead of just selected rooms. House Keeping was great and very polite and hardworking. Will definately stay agan for my next visit.

Wonderful city hotel with perfect location in Bangkok. Sightseeing points can be reached by Skytrain or even boat. Opposite of very nice shopping center Platinum (forget MBK) . Restaurants and massage shops ( MB Massage) all in walking distance. Rooms very spacious and clean. Bed super comfy as mattresses are brand new. Room cleaning is also doing a great job. Bar area is nice and comfortable to have a drink or food after a long day in the city. Pool area nice too. Staff in general is extremely friendly and attentive. Always have a smile and are happy to help with every question that might occur (taxi to airport or restaurant recommendation). Want to mention Anny from the restaurant especially. She is a real asset to the hotel but honestly all of them are really great. Definitely i will come back to this hotel. Just loved it.

The Glow VELADHI hotel is @ BKK best location and just great in all factors! Everything is nicely designed and managed. The staff is well trained, very polite and most supportive.  The rooms are modern, nice and functional. The manager Mr. Michael Zeller runs the place incredibally well and his crew is just fantastic. Ms. Yui the front desk manger and Mr. Toto the Chef as well as Mr. Wat the commis are exeptionally professional, friendly and helpful!  It's not the first time for us to stay here, coming back 'after' the Covid it's even better. We 100% reccomend this hotel!!! 🌹🙏😃

Checked in on 18 Dec, about 4pm. I was greeted with very rude and nonchalant receptionist. She simply said that my booking could not be found and returned my passport, as though I was just trying my luck. She did not bother to ask for my booking confirmation or the booking channel and expected me to leave. I took out the Agoda booking confirmation to show her, only after a while, she found my booking. Then, another receptionist came and and said that breakfast was not included. Again, I showed the booking confirmation which showed that breakfast was included. This is the second time staying here and it will be the last. Such atrocious service standard and arrogance. This is totally unbecoming of Thai hospitality. Totally astounded and still in shock. Time for the hotel to wake up its idea and determine if it’d like to continue in the hospitality business.

Stayed here in May 2014 and just came across the pictures on my phone, not realising that I never got round to uploading them and leaving a review! I would highly recommend this place. Staff speak very good English & are helpful (as always in Thailand, customer service is always the best, hence it being my favourite place to visit, nothing is ever too much of an issue and they are always willing to help & always with a smile) . A late check out was no problem along with storing our bags. Good location, with a shopping mall across the road. Lovely rooms and comfortable beds. I haven't been to Bangkok for years but would definitely stay here again in the future.

Stayed in deluxe room. Had a large comfy king bed and spacious clean bathroom. Did not swim in the pool but utilised its gym. Towels were provided with water dispensers inside as well. Except for the slight impatience female staff during check in, all other staff were friendly and greeted is with smiles. All in all enjoyed our 2nd stay here largely due to the comfy spacious room and its proximity with Platinum Mall and Pratunam market. Also possible to walk 10min to CentralWorld, Big C market via sheltered R Walk bridge. Great value for money if under Sgd85/night.

First time in Bangkok stayed between 10th Feb and 20th Feb. Hotel is in a great location near all the shopping centres and the sky train. It’s very modern and very comfortable facilities. The reception and porter staff were very friendly and that’s refreshing for a hotel. Just a word also for the manager Mr Hans! What a great guy very friendly and knowledgeable he had a chat with all guests at breakfast (when I actually turn up for breakfast) also you get discount in the seafood restaurant below which is a bonus. Would definitely use this hotel if I returned to Bangkok. Thanks Dave

Well, this hotel located just right opposite the Platinum Fashion Mall and easily access to CentralWorld and Siam area. Location is right and everything you want all is here. I like the hotel bed and it’s extremely comfortable and room amenities is full. Room is clean and WiFi connection also strong. Staff reception also friendly during check in. Overall this is budget hotel with best if you travel with family or group of friends. Being stay a room with twin beds, pillow talk is the best at night for everyone fall to sleep quick. Will come back to stay again next time.

Comfortable hotel with good amenities. Across the street from the Platinum fashion mall and close to Pratunam and Talad Neon night markets. About 15 minute walk to Central world and Airport rail line. Decent linens, towels and bathroom amenities. A little bit of mold in the shower. Nice looking pool. Food court on the 6th floor.
