“Very basic, minimal service, good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Very basic budget hotel in the patpong area, next to the night market. The hotel is a bit worn out - wall paper coming off and furniture frayed around the edges. Courteous though chaotic service with the front desk doubling as bell boy and helping to serve breakfast. Forgetful cleaning staff does not replace drinking water or clean used glasses. No elevator, but has a food elevator that doubles as a luggage conveyer. One can hear the street noise from the rooms, but sleeping at night didn't present an issue.

Room Tip: Choose Glitz if you want a budget hotel in the Patpong area. Ask for second floor if you don't w...

While maybe a bit on the pricey side for a small hotel in Silom, this place goes to every effort to make your stay great. The rooms are funky and interesting with very cool bathrooms, and there is good window coverings so you can avoid rising with the sun.

Well located for access to the skytram, which can take you to the river where you can catch a boat to the old part of Bangkok. At night the area comes alive with markets selling everything from tee-shirts, to lamps to ping-pong shows. I've stayed here twice, and while I feel like the price is a LITTLE high, I seem to keep comming back.

This was my second stay at this property and it gets better every time! I so love the fact that whenever I arrive, they remember me instantly and go to great lengths to ensure I am comfortable.

I find the decor of the property, the size of the rooms and the cleanliness all more than pleasing. While the Sala Daeng area can be a little hectic, this property sits far enough away that the craziness is not directly outside the entrance. Places to eat in the area can be a little pricey but that is likely during to the number of tourists. If you walk past PatPong and the other restaurants, things are much more affordable and reasonable. I find the pricing appropriate for this type of hotel but be sure to consistently review rates as they often offer specials that are amazing.

I will continue to visit this property and recommend it without hesitation. Be sure to say hello to Tina!

Very average hotel. Tiny ants everywhere in the room. Light out in bathroom. Breakfast ok. Staff quite helpful. Area is ok, busy and quite pricey for food. Be aware of the tuk tuks in the area as they are all commissioned by shops and restaurants to take you there, rather than the place you want to go!
Make use of the river taxis. They are much cheaper that road.
All in all ok stop gap before we went home.

Stayed here for 3 nights.
Not easy to locate the exact location of the hotel, do make sure you have the detailed address to show to the taxi driver fetching you to the hotel. Just in front of Tawana.

Check in was quite smooth and the male staff showed me into my room.
There is no lift, only stairs.

Room was nicely decorated and cozy. It was quite comfortable actually, with the free Wifi internet access, mini bar, tea making facilities, LCD tv, and a see through bathroom. Clean.

More toiletries should be provided - toothbrush/paste.

Breakfasts were average with limited choices with sets, fruits, toasts, etc at the first floor. The breakfast lady is the most approachable and friendly staff in the hotel, and she is really trying to serve you as a prestige guest.

Hotel is very near to the night market, just 5 minutes walk down and also to the italian restaurants, bars/discos.

If you intend to bring any guests outside into the hotel to overnight etc, do produce ID/passport to the counter.

A pleasant visit in Thai, and will stay in the hotel again.

Room Tip: If you want some exercises, upper rooms will be ok. If not, choose the lower rooms. Breakfast anyti...

I love this hotel, not only is it close enough to the shopping around and massage places, but also it is on the street with some excellent food choices.

It only has 14 rooms, so you know you get a personalised service. The breakfast is nice, either a Pad Thai or Continental breakfast. Both are great, especially for hangovers!

Overall, it is worth its price compared to some big named hotels around the area.

The Glitz Hotel is a little boutique hotel in Patpong right next to the wild nightlife. This hotel is awesome for those that like art deco style and a unique twist. The lighting in the room is perfect for nighttime romance. This location is not the best for a family, just single minded travelers whom want to date girls of the night. The restaurant here is half open air and the other half has a bar with good music playing.. The open air section looks out onto the street at the busy Patpong traffic. I enjoyed my stay here, and the staff was exceptional. I hope to return for this is my kind of madness in Patpong. If you like something different the the standard hotel, I suggest this place. I originally heard about this hotel on www.mytraveldates.com as they review only Thai hotels for the single minded male. I suggest staying at this location for around 3 nights.

Room Tip: Not many rooms here so book fast
