- The all-white decor of the G Deluxe Rooms and G Suites is a little clinical

The ground-floor lobby is a visual treat decorated with eclectic artworks, such as a caricature sumo statue and giant mushroom sculptures. A faux exposed brick wall and vintage decorative items — antique Polaroid camera, Binatone Digimatic clock radio, record player — inject a sense of refined nostalgia. Moving images add to the wonder, with LCD screens in the elevators showing fashion and design montages synched with omnipresent lounge beats.
Bed and Bath
G Deluxe Rooms are bathed in futuristic white, from the bedside armchair to the ceramic penny tiles that blanket the bathroom. The similarly sized Executive Rooms are designed with rich earth tones and wood furnishings. The G Suites have monochromatic interiors softened by vintage furniture; there’s a glass bar ideal for cocktails mixed by a private bartender. All rooms come with spacious bathrooms with bathtubs. Toiletries from French company Roger & Gallet are provided in the Executive Rooms and G Suites.
The sultry interiors of the Scarlett wine bar and restaurant set the mood for fine European dining; the menu features dishes recreated from consultant chef Manuel Martinez’s two-Michelin-starred Louis XIII restaurant in Paris. 25 Degrees, a sister to the Los Angeles burger joint, serves up some of the juiciest burgers in town 24 hours a day. For a casual tipple, Playground, on the mezzanine level, has a cozy living room ambience. An open-air swimming pool, a small fitness center, and the Anne Sémonin spa offer opportunities to work off culinary indulgences and get ready for an evening on the town.
In the Area
Silom is a business district by day and a neon-lit urban playground by night. For some local eats, follow the office crowd around midday to Silom Soi 5 for a variety of noodle and rice dishes. After lunch wander around the alleyways packed with clothes and trinket vendors to understand why this pedestrian lane is known locally as Soi Lalai Sap, or Money Melting Alley. On the way back to the hotel, stop by Dean & DeLuca for tasty pastries and an afternoon cuppa. Every night along Silom Road the nightlife and shopping area clustered around the BTS Skytrain Saladaeng station comes to life. For a classy dining and wining experience, Ku Dé Ta and trendy Maggie Choo’s are usually abuzz with afterwork executives and the beautiful people of Bangkok.
How to Get There
We had a great time in the Pullman Hotel G. Thanks to its size and architecture, it felt more like an intimate boutique style hotel with a hip 'W Hotel vibe'. The check-in by a lady Azucar was a great start of the stay. The rooms was immaculate (all white) and clean. The small outdoor pool was a pleasant feature after a long day of walking around the city. Breakfast was spectacular, with an incredible range of hot and cold dishes, both Western and Asian. The location is great as it is close to the metro station towards the Riverside (do check out the spectacular SiamIcon mall at the other side of the river) for excursions towards all the palaces and temples. Very close to the hotel is a great street food place, called Mama Mia. We got all these tips from the Duty Manager, Teresa, who has been particularly helpful. Kudos to her and her team.
Booked this hotel for two nights on the way back from Koh Samui. We booked executive rooms and so pleased we did as the service we received was amazing. We had a fantastic room on the 35th floor with amazing views. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and our room was decorated on arrival and when we returned on our first night we had wine, chocolate, cake and flowers in our room, such a lovely touch.
You can use the executive lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea 2-4 and then drinks and light refreshments from 5:30-7:30. It was definitely worth paying the extra as it was a nice start to the evening.
The pool area was small but very nice. In each of the dressing rooms there were also showers, a steam room, a sauna and a hot tub.
Scarlets bar on the 37th floor had amazing views over the city especially at night time and was a lovely bar to have a few late night drinks.
There is also a bar on the ground floor which is open 24 hrs which shows football etc.
Would definitely recommend this hotel, we just wished we had booked for more than two nights.
I decided to try this out since the Dusit has been demolished, and I used to stay there when I visited Bangkok.
Pullman Hotel G was a great choice, and I would definitely recommend booking a room with access to the Executive Lounge - for the added extras, but also for easy check-in. You just head straight to the 27th floor for personalised service. There are too many things to list all the examples of quality customer service, but I can say that I experienced the same high quality at every single layer of engagement - Check-in/out, the welcome at the entrance, attendants at the pool, room service, and the 27th floor staff. Even bumping into a staff orientation at the lifts was impressive - where new staff as well as the staff mentor were so friendly and took time to explain their purpose. I think the consistency of guest services is what sets the hotel apart - It is very common to have your favourites amongst staff during a hotel visit, but in Pullman Hotel G I was so impressed with the consistently high standards set and maintained by all the staff I encountered. This has instantly become a new favourite and regular stopover place for me. Highly recommended.
