From the oversize prints of Bangkok street scenes to the peppermint scent that is pumped through the air conditioning system, everything about the Galleria 10 revolves around sanuk, the Thai word for fun. And the eighth floor is where the party’s at, from sunbathing by the rooftop pool to sundowners on sofas made of polished concrete at the Leapfrog Bar and Grill.
Bed & Bath
A bold stencil drawing of Bangkok’s skyline sets the scene in every room, and curvy egg chairs in primary colors stand in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows. Colorful patterned carpets meet polished hardwood floors, and glass-topped end tables and work desks are complemented by sturdy office chairs. A sliding frosted glass door separates the bedroom and the (compact) bathroom, where intricate black mosaics continue the skyline theme. Premier Deck Rooms come with private balconies furnished with bright orange tables and chairs.
The lobby-level @g restaurant serves breakfast and a reasonably priced lunch buffet. Starting at 4:30 p.m. you can head to the eighth-floor Leapfrog Bar and Grill for tapas-style dishes and cocktails. The large rooftop pool is surrounded by jumbo purple deck chairs and has a retractable roof for all-weather swimming. The gym is on the small side, but it has cardio machines and free weights and offers views of the neighborhood.
In the Area
Close to the intersection of Asoke and Sukhumvit roads, the Galleria 10 is surrounded by shopping, nightlife and sightseeing options. Both the Nana and Asoke Skytrain stations are a 10-minute walk from the hotel, and the equally convenient Sukhumvit MRT station is located beneath the Asoke station. Visit Jim Thompson House to see how the grandfather of the modern silk industry revived this classic Thai art. It’s a great way to take in traditional architecture and design, too. Or head to the Monks Bowl Village (Ban Bat) in eastern Bangkok to see craftsman fashion eight metal strips (representing the eight fold path) into beautiful alms bowls. The Bangkok Art and Cultural Center is conveniently located in Siam Square and has an ever-changing array of movies, art and music on offer. Terminal 21 is the closest mall to the property; it’s home to a variety of Thai and international designers.
How to Get There
Though i stay in this hotel for around 1 to 2 days this time, cannot resist the distance to terminal 21, all the sukhumvit soi eateries, yoga elements, etc. Only a few gripes - bathroom lights always seem so dim..and just couldn't switch from overhead showers to shower heads lol...
overall nice stay in nice though traffic jam district...
The hotel is located a little further in along the busy Sukhumvit Road, which is not a bad thing considering the traffic and noise from the main road! It is within walking distance to a couple of BTS station and also to Terminal 21 Shopping Centre. There are many pubs and massage parlours close by as well. I was booked into the Premiere room and absolutely loved it! The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable too. The best part was it had a little walk-in closet in the room too! Breakfast was a little limited in variety but it was adequate and tasted good. Would definitely recommend this hotel for those looking to stay in the Sukhumvit area.
We stayed in a club room for 4 nights. Very clean,big and bright, great shower and comfortable bed. Breakfast has a good selection and staff are very efficient no dirty tables making sure the dining area is ready for there next guests.The roof top bar is really nice great for a few drinks before dinner and a good happy hour or if in club room with benefits free drinks including cocktails which are very good and snacks this is from 5.00 pm until 7.00 pm well worth it. The pool is small and difficult to get a sunbed as there are only a few. The bar staff are excellent take your room number know it the next day efficient and very friendly. There is a shuttle service to the main road not far to walk but the road is narrow so we used it most days. We have stayed in lots of hotels in Bangkok as we are in the city 4 maybe 5 times a year and would highly recommended this hotel. There was only one hiccup and that was with our payment which it took them 3 days to find . We will return in January hope there accounts department works better.
Stayed 5 nights in Deluxe Chill.
Great location in a quiet street, but still close to everything. A few minutes to walk to two BTS-stations, and a short stroll to Benjakitti Park (love the early mornings in this park) through Soi 10.
Helpful and welcoming staff.
Decent breakfast with a separate noodle station (don’t think I’ve seen that before, so a nice touch).
Well sized room with big and very good shower.
Good air conditioning.
Very good bed (one of the best I ever slept in).
After first giving me a room on the second floor that was nowhere near up to standard, they immediately gave me a new room on the fifth floor. They handled it fast and professionally.
(I didn’t use the pool, fitness centre or restaurant on the eighth floor, so I can’t say much about it).
The first room they gave me had several damages. The floor was so bad that I immediately took a picture of it (see attached photo) so that I wouldn’t be held responsible for something previous guests might have done, and the door into the shower scratches into the ceiling. I can’t believe they gave me this room in the first place.
The sliding glass door into the bathroom (on my second room) crashes into the wall unless you stop it if you forget to close it. Some day an unlucky tourist will break this door, and it won’t be his fault.
My wake up call on the day I left came almost fifteen minutes to late (luckily I was already awake).
I’ve stayed in a bunch of hotels in Bangkok during the last years, and except from the few negatives mentioned above, this is definitely a hotel I might return to if the price is right. But my four star rating is based on the room they gave me on the fifth floor. If I ended up staying in the room they first gave me, my rating would probably be two stars, and I really think they deserve to be criticised for not repairing rooms like the one they first gave me before they let people stay in it.
That aside: I wouldn’t hesitate to stay in this hotel again.
We really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, not too firm. We also enjoyed the rooftop restaurant with its nice happy hour drink selection. The spa was amazing as well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient to get to the BTS or MRT.
