GLOW Pratunam Hotel (Bangkok)

Where to stay in Bangkok?
About 45 minutes away from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, GLOW Pratunam Hotel is located from 7th floor of Shibuya Pratunam shopping complex. The hotel is located very near to the popular Wanton Mee shop and about 5-10 minutes of walking distance, you'll reach Platinum Fashion Mall and Palladium shopping mall.
Free WiFi login/password is provided when you check-in the hotel.
How to get there?
Address: 919 Petchburi Road, Kwang Thanon Phayathai Rajdhevi, Bangkok 10400, Thailand
Tel: +66 225 73999

By Airport Rail Link, alight at Ratchaprarop station and walk to the hotel (about 15 minutes). I wouldn't suggest walking to the hotel unless you do not have a luggage with you. The road is a bit rough along the way so I'd suggest you to take a cab.

By taxi, we were given a ticket at the taxi stand which is located at the basement. It was a fixed rate of 500 baht for 5 persons (inclusive of toll charges) to travel from airport to Glow Pratunam Hotel.

Hotel room is definitely spacious. We can even have a small gathering at the sofa area.
Hotel amenities are well provided except for the comb. Couldn't locate the comb.
If you need some exercise, hit the gym which is usually quiet in the morning.
Or have a swim at the pool. The pool is really small, need to swim a few more laps.
After our short trip, we took a metered taxi back to Suvarnabhumi International Airport which cost about 250 baht (inclusive of toll charges). Do check with the taxi driver to have the meter started, some drivers preferred a fixed rate charge.

Where else have I been in Bangkok?
