Pullman Bangkok Hotel G
What We Love
- Excellent dining concepts, including a 24-hour burger joint and a restaurant affiliated with a Michelin-starred chef
- Within walking distance of the BTS Skytrain and the vibrant entertainment and shopping neighborhood of Silom
- Buzzy atmosphere
What To Know
- Traditionalists might not appreciate the T-shirt-clad doormen or the laid-back approach to hospitality
- The gym is pretty small, and the covered pool doesn't catch the sun
- The all-white decor of the G Deluxe Rooms and G Suites is a little clinical
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
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
Stayed here for three nights in an Executive room with lounge access. The room is a bit worn but rather spacious. The view is wonderful. The lounge is rather good with a good selection of cocktails, wine and food and service is good. Breakfast is better to take in the lounge as the breakfast restaurant was very crowded and noisy. The pool area is quite good with sun a lot of the day.
I was satisfied through all my stay at the executive floor. Maybe the choice for coktail hour now is a bit reduced. No more choice with wine (one red, one white) as before and limited choice of cheese and sometimes no hot snacks. But if i take all together it was still good. And breakfast is still very good in a delightful atmosphere.
I booked two rooms via Agoda months in advanced and a request for both to have twin beds to accommodate four people. Upon check in, the rep informed me that I was receiving Kings and that breakfast wasn’t included (without me even asking about breakfast).
I thought breakfast was included with my booking so admittedly that’s my fault for not reading the fine prints. However, I had sent over a request for the room type months in advanced so upon check in to be told that I received 2 king beds is frustrating. Also, it wasn’t sold out because I pulled the website and checked room availability and there were plenty of rooms so I was just confused as to why they are telling me I’m stuck with the Kings. In any case, I asked for a manager and Fah came over and looked at me and said there’s nothing she can do.
I was tired so I didn’t argue with her and wrote to the reservations department the next day to inquire about my bed arrangement and share my checkin experience and surprisingly, Fah responds to my email:
“With regards to your e mail about the inconvenience caused for bed and breakfast. May I take this opportunity the inform you that I have check with our reservation department already. The booking for 2 rooms are not included with the Breakfast since you made the booking. You can check with your agency for this thing.
2nd thing, The bed that Adoda.com book is king bed since they made the booking with us. Some booking they put ( Twin/ King is subject to the room availabilyty; just in case hotel has the room for the guest if possible ). However, sometime agency will call us or send us an e mail to make sure the the guest has spacific request and will get that things. But in this case we got nothing from them. So, we blocked king bed for you and tried to allocate to be the same floor ( unfortunately we didn’t have twin bed at that time of check in as per it is fully booked for twin already)....
The tone of the email speaks for itself, she is a poor representation of this establishment.
The rooms were quite dirty and so was the stained/white out comforter.
There are many better 4 or 5 star options when staying in Bangkok, I regret choosing Pullman.
Unfortunately, Fah, the manager had an opportunity to fix my room arrangement or even offer to comp a breakfast as a gesture of goodwill but she was too incompetent to do so.
Note the only reason why I gave two stars instead of one is because of the staff under Fah, they were much kinder and nicer.
It started with a mistake I made in my booking, thanks to William and the team they managed to slot me in, they really went that extra mile helping me out.
The hotel team are great, the lounge run by Khun Grape always perfect, never any issues, Khun KK making sure all groups are taken care of always on hand..
This time the review focuses extra on Housekeeping, my room was made up so well, and turn down service also exceptional.
My huge thanks to Khun Fon, really happy, professional and always doing a great job in Housekeeping..
In summary a superb hotel with an excellent team.....
We spend a lot of times in this hotel in the past and this visit we stayed again
Great location, rooms are spacious and clean
Scarlet rooftop bar great spot to enjoy a drink and value for money
All together great spot to discover Bangkok or to come back and just enjoy the city!
