Pullman Bangkok Hotel G is the latest fashionable hotel that has taken over what was formerly Sofitel Bangkok Silom, located along Silom road near Bangkok’s business district.

The Silom area has long been known as a little dodgy part of Bangkok, but recent years has seen it develop into a hotspot for chic, vouge venues with many big lifestyle hotel brands joining in the fray, including Pullman Hotel G.

The newly renovated Pullman Bangkok Hotel G provides 469 rooms, including their signature vintage-chic G rooms along with a mix of older executive rooms from the previous Sofitel Era.

The retro industrial concept is evident just from entering the lobby, with white brick walls, wooden desks and overhanging exposed bulbs adorning the walkway – an intentional rough finish that adds that bit of rustic charm that’s so in fashion now.

“Old is the new new.” as the saying goes.

I’ve been kindly invited to have a preview of Pullman Bangkok Hotel G’s facilities, and Bangkok being one of my favorite Asian cities to visit, the offer was hard to resist.

Let’s get to some of the rooms shall we, starting with Pullman’s hallmark G Deluxe Room.

 G Deluxe Room

This classy, white 34 sqm room was my home for 2 nights. Featuring wood-finished flooring, full WIFI connectivity and floor-to-ceiling windows, you can expect nothing less than full comfort with a dramatic panoramic view of the Chao Praya river and city centre from high above.

The G Deluxe room is pretty minimalistic, with a trendy Scandinavian touch – a calming sight in contrast to the messy bustle of Bangkok city. Space is something you won’t have to worry about in the deluxe room.

Be it reading a book on the lounge chair or catching up with work on the station desk, savvy guest can immerse themselves with designer furnishing for leisure or business.

The tiled toilet also comes with a bathtub and C.O. Bigelow amenities, a boutique small-batch American apothecary brand which signals just how much even the small details are considered at Pullman hotel.

Executive Room

Moving on to the other more conventional rooms, the 34 sqm Executive Room exudes a warmer tone, with wood floorings and a more classic hotel vibe that traditionalists will prefer. It’s the same size as the G Deluxe room so it’s up to guests on which mood they prefer.

Executive Suite

From 77 – 165 sqm, the Executive suite is a home away from home. A wide living room area separated from the bedroom provides an alternate environment to relax in. Special privileges like a butler service and executive lounge access are also available for this room type.

G Suite

A modern take on the Executive suite is the G suite, which has a similar layout but furnished in contemporary white. You’ll notice little quirks like a bar counter instead of a work desk, which suits the party-animal more. There’s also an intimate surprise nonchalantly sitting on the sofa.

The ‘G Box’ is a naughty package of adult titbits and cosmetics that would make grandma blush.

The G Suite makes throwing hotel parties all that more convenient, and these are special arrangements you can work out with the hotel to even hire a DJ and get canapes/drinks provided.

For the conventional family, you’ll want to stick to the Executive suite, but for the young at heart raring for a little fun, the G Suite is your go-to room to book.

What about the food at Pullman Bangkok Hotel G you ask?

Mistral Restaurant

Mistral restaurant is the international all-day dining option in Pullman Bangkok Hotel G. This popular buffet serves a selection of Asian and Western cuisines alike.

Other than the gourmet buffet, there’s also a la carte selections like Pad Thai. As with the standard restaurant offering, there’s something decent for everyone.

25 Degrees Burgers, Wine & Liquor Bar

A new sister extension to famous American burger joint LA burger bar, 25 Degrees is named after the supposed ideal serving temperature a hamburger patty should be at after resting. That’s what LA burger bar claims after extensive burger research.

25 Degrees offers an upbeat “bordello meets burger bar” decor with Western retro music and an extensive drinks list.

No. 1 Burger with Squid Ink bun (330 baht, top up extra for squid ink bun).

This signature burger comes with gorgonzola cheese, caramelized onions, bacon and thousand island sauce. Immensely flavourful, the No.1 burger’s patty is moist with a punch from the pungent gorgonzola, balanced out by the sweet onions.

Open 24 hours, 25 Degrees is also a great alternative for an American-styled breakfast if you prefer to skip the buffet line at Mistral. The Banana walnut waffles was one of my favorites here, while pancakes have never disappointed me.

Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant

For a sophisticated night out, Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant is the latest ‘be seen’ venue for young executives who want a casual, fun evening.

Located high above on the 37th floor, Scarlett boasts a fine selection of wines along with tapas, daily specials, cold cuts (Jamon Bellota anyone?) and cheeses.

One impressive feature of Scarlett is that the restaurant dry-ages their beef to produce a more pronounced flavour that lingers even after swallowing. Dry aging is a tedious technique not many other restaurants in Bangkok administer for that extra mile in flavour.

With plenty of high windows for pockets of light and strategically spaced furniture, guests get a sense of coziness without feeling too confined. There’s a dress code here, so don’t arrive in flip flops or you’ll be ushered to McDonalds instead.

Fitness and Pool facilities

The open air swimming pool on the 5th floor of Pullman Hotel is a tranquil oasis for guests to relax their body and soul. The pool bar offers light snacks and drinks as well.

However if sitting still doesn’t calm your mind, you might opt for a bit of exercise in the state-of-the-art fitness center, or even better, Yoga session with a certified instructor that you can book with the hotel.

The postures look simple enough in the pictures, but wait till you try it for yourself – sweating is an understatement for the beginner. Just repeat to yourself:

“The pain you feel is your fats dying.”

A stone’s throw away from the city, guests at Pullman Bangkok Hotel G can enjoy contemporary living with in-vogue gourmet dining experiences, all complemented by warm Thai hospitality. Pullman Hotel successfully crosses a boutique hotel experience with 5-star facilities for a unique hotel stay, one not to be missed by Bangkok travelers.

Expected Damage: From 3000 Baht per night
