Bangkok Hotels

Mrs. CWA14 and I looking for a posh-ish staycation (Thailand based). We are considering a few properties such as: Pullman Bangkok Hotel G, Banyan Tree Bangkok, and SO/Bangkok. Has there been any recent stays and/or recommendations? Are there similar properties (Accor or not) that I may have overlooked? Accor Gold so would be hopeful to swing an upgrade. Any and all advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Don't under any circumstances book the Pullman Bangkok G - it is a disaster! I've just booked the Movenpick Wellness Resort for a stay in late January and the price of suites is currently really quite reasonable.

Seconded re Pullman Bangkok G, really odd service and rooms are not luxurious in any sense.

Thank you both for that heads-up. Will definitely give the Pullman G Bangkok a miss.

The Movenpick we will definitely look at and consider. We are also considering getting out of Bangkok and heading down to Si Racha and getting a suite at the Novotel Marina Sriracha & Ko Si Chang. I know there isn't a ton to do in Si Racha. But has anyone stayed at the Novotel there and would advise as to whether it'd be worth a two-night getaway for?

Pullman Bangkok Hotel G is not good.

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit was good to me when I was Gold.

Pullman Bangkok Grande was pleasant as well.

Both upgraded.

not sure what should be so bad re Pullman G!
was there during Test & Go phase in 2022 and was quite pleased...lounges can get quite crowded though, but rooms and service are ok for that price. the rooftop restaurant/bar is nice

of course SO/ Bangkok is better, but prices are quite high there...and you are lucky if you get an upgrade as Gold member...

Movenpick BDMS Wellness resort is newly renovated; the park is stunning and the suites are large with balcony, some face the Khlong (channel with electric commuter boats)

Novotel Sri Racha is a relatively new hotel, but it's not really a tourist spot, further south Pullman G Pattaya (which is outside the entertainment and red light area) and Movenpick Na Jomtien are good alternatives

I was surprised as well by the comments about this hotel. It is definitely not the Sofitel Silom it used to be, but for the price, it is not bad.

As with every hotel, is is a matter of expectations and price.

If you can afford Sofitel Sukhumvit or So, then of course, Pullman is not a place for you.

But if you cannot afford better, then Pullman G (I would definitely recommend the Club Floors though) is an acceptable place to stay if you like the style of the place.

You must compare what is comparable.

Sofitel Sukhumvit is almost 2.5 times more expensive than Pullman G next week!!! (251 against 106 for a basic room).

Following your logic, why not say that Novotel Singapore is "not good" but The Raffles treated you well?

They don't compete in the same league.

agreed
the price difference between Sofitel Sukhumvit and SO on one side and Pullman G or comparable Accor hotels in Bangkok on the other side, has increased a lot since Covid

Hows Muse these days? I only visited the speakeasy bar on my last visit. It was a nice hotel and the location is now better than it was when it felt upscale.

Muse is not a typical Accor hotel; rather a theme based hotel. Rooms and decoration are rather dark. Some like it, some not at all.

Lounge facility is nice (either indoors or outdoor on the rooftop) but the happy hour offerings are medioce (Pullman G is even better)

They had a bit problems with the service after Covid (probably let too many people go).
