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
Hotel is rather old and room is decent. Location is a plus, it's close to both Nana BTS and Asoke BTS, as well as Sukhumvit Metro Station, 5 - 10 mins walk. There is free 24hours tuk-tuk service provided by the hotel which takes you to and fro from the hotel to the cross junction of the main road and Soi 10.
Staffs are good, friendly and approchable, clean room, the selection of their breakfast for buffet is also good. The location of the hotel is good for those who love to walk. It is surrounded by many massage parlors and thai restaurants. There is a korea town nearby so a lot of korean food is available also for those who want to taste korean aside from thai. It is also walking distance to Nana Station of sky train. I don’t recommend tuk tuk as the fare gets too high. Just take taxi or train. The porter of the hotel takes the visitors to main road via their tuk tuk shuttle or they will gladly call for a taxi.
Clean, modern, perfectly friendly and nice hotel. Great location 5-10 minute walk to the train station and other amenities. Breakfast had plenty of choices and enough to fill you up before a big day out. Easy to walk to shops and parks. Go and have some fun in Bangkok!
We travel with two kids, aged 9 and 7, making us a group of four: two adults and two kids. We booked this place on the explicit understanding that we were booking a triple room with one double bed and two single beds. We paid in full in advance and notified the hotel by email that we would be arriving late, between 2 and 3 am.
We were therefore surprised when we were asked to pay an additional fee for an extra bed or additional room. I had to sit down and collect myself I was so angry. The manager was asserting the room we had booked was for a maximum of three people. To my mind this was nothing more than a crude shakedown. The hotel's own policies, see photos, make it clear that one child under 12 can stay free using existing bedding. So treat one child as the third adult and the other as the freebie..
The truth is more likely to be that hotel staff in their wisdom had let all rooms with a double and two single beds. Would it really offer a configuration that it could not provide? I don't think so. And if you could provide your customer with what they ordered and paid for, then why wouldn't you? I can think of no other explanation for this ridiculous sutuation other than the hotel thought we weren't coming and release our paid for room.
Personally this was too much for us and our kids. It's now post 4 am and it's all about loss of face as far as I concerned. No one in their right mind would inflict this experience on their customers. So next we get told we'll be upgraded for tonight to a Club room with an extra bed. I struggle with this because the upgrade is in fact a downgrade ... we have a double and a single, not the double and two singles we booked. Plus the single was a temporary bed though nevertheless comfortable.
We were told our booking would be sorted out later in the day. Guess what? No one got in touch to sort this out.
On check out I spoke to a manager but all she could do was apologise, give me her card and say we would be upgraded next time if we contacted her.
In fairness to the reception staff they returned my wallet to me which I must have left at check-in. I am very grateful for this as its loss would have been a major pain in the ***.
My kids loved the hotel - they liked the food and the pool. If I hadn't had to deal with this nonsense I might have enjoyed it too. But I am sorry to say I don't think this is either a customer or a child friendly hotel. This situation was totally avoidable and would never have happened in a well managed customer-focused business. We paid for something we did not receive and no attempt was made to put this right.
The hotel is close to one of the tube and train station to go to the center. Breakfast is superb, lots of choice and tasty. Rooms are nice and clean (apart from few ants) , very comfortable beds.
-When we arrived they didn't have rooms for us (2 couples) . We might arrived earlier than the check-in time, but still waiting for 1.5hours in total for 2rooms is a lot after lots of traveling. -As we couldn't have the breakfast on the last day we've been told we'll have a breakfast box with sandwich etc. The box contained a super mini! croissant, a cupcake, and 110ml juice. Is really bad and unacceptable for a 4star hotel to have that when you can have for breakfast as much as you want with multiple choices and you spend that much money. I was expecting (as they said the day before) a proper sized croissant's (with some ham&cheese maybe), fruits and juice. When we complained at the reception they sent us to the restaurant manager, who didn't! deal with us, she walked away and sent over a staff. In the end, we got one more of the same things was there before and some fruit. -One of the reasons we choose this hotel was the swimming pool. We wanted to relax after 2 long weeks of traveling. We couldn't use it because of a private party. Fair enough, they do that, but I would very much appreciate if we would know that much earlier so we could find alternative or even different hotel. -At the reception, you have the password for the wifi along with your room key. You can use wifi after they put you in the system what we couldn't use it for over 6hours because they didn't register us. From a 4star hotel I was expecting better organization, better service for my money, especially we were there for a very short time, I wanted to relax and enjoy the place. Looks great but service is poor.
