Picked this hotel due to the ratings on tripadvisor,being an accor member and loving the fact I could book the executive suite for a really reasonable price (£140 per night for their best room! Cool!). I knew we were a little further away from the main tourist areas but were happy to know there was transport to the nearest BTS and it was only a couple of stops away,
Our room was ready when we arrived and we had an efficient check in , in the executive lounge with a cold towel and welcome drink. We were shown to our wonderful suite, which was exellently appointed with fab views and a cool bathroom with a massive tub! The bed was huge and comfortable. We were given all the information about the special offers we could avail of at the King Power duty free mall, including vouchers for 3000baht!(500 per night booked). We also got 20% off food and beverages and another 700 baht off any f&b at the hotel too. We had access to the executive lounge which offered the usual drinks and snacks between 5 and 7 but these were of an excellent quality and very tasty. We enjoyed several good mojotos here!
The tuk tuk to the BTS was great, and never more than a few minutes to wait at either end. It only took about 5 minutes to walk though! At the end of the drive , there was a massage parlour for 200 or 300 baht you could get an excellent, albeit rather communal, massage. The mall where the BTS Victory Monument was located ( century plaza) had several hair salons and nail bars for bargain prices if you needed anything doing. I think I had my nails and hair done 3 times in 5 days! Fantastic! We also bought a BTS card for 15 journeys, which meant each journey would only cost about 25 baht whatever distance was travelled. This came in very handy until we realised how cheap the cabs were! Most journeys didnt cost more than 100 b ( about £2.50) even when we stuck in traffic for ages!
One thing we loved was the cineplex at the Siam Paragon. This mall is crazy and amazing. The cinema features the Nokia Ultrascreen, where, for 800 baht each, you get access to a stylish lounge with complimentary soft /hot drinks and snacks and then shown to your private berth, with 2 fully reclining seats with gorgeous smelling duvet and pillows! So fun!
Back to the Pullman, we found the staff so warm, friendly and helpful at all times. They made an effort to remember names and what you had done the night before so they could engage in some banter. They spoke great english and were fantastic! I was worried reading the reviews, but then wondered if they had been written about the same hotel!
Check out was smooth in the lounge again, and although the bell boys needed reminding to bring our luggage, we wouldnt hesitate to recommend this hotel. Only thing was.. Avoid the duty free mall, totally overpriced and full of Chinese tour buses, dont know how things are priced over there but it was way over UK prices and no amount of discount improved the situation!
Pick an executive room or ideally suite, worth the extra!
