We stayed at the Buddy Lodge during the first night of Songkran - huge party out on Khao San Rd, but our room was quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the hotel was clean. It's a great value!

Family of six with four teenagers stayed three nights. Khao San Road is a thriving, fun, loud place - think the strip in Las Vegas - booming music, lots of partiers, shopping and street side massages. The Buddy Hotel is right in the midst of it all, so you can't beat the location. When we arrived in Bangkok our taxi...

Once again we were reasonably happy with the Buddy Lodge hotel (3rd floor). The location is great and we accept the minor noise issues for the convenience of having everything in Khaosan Road on our doorstep. Hotel is very clean throughout and check in at reception is 1st class. The bathrooms are still looking very tired and the maintenance seems...

Booked this place on Khaosan road. To be expected it's noisy only till 3 or 4 am. Then it starts to quiet down. The place is dated but well maintained. Staff are helpful and the pool is a treat to cool down in. The deck and lounge pads get foot burning hot! AC worked well in the room so did...

Not one for backpacking I was nervous about this trip but Buddy Lodge was our first stop and such a pleasant surprise. Great service and English speakers on check in, lovely room right on the Khao San Road but you couldn't even hear the music from our room. Also very clean and nice bathroom. Lush pool on the roof too...

The room was a good size and in a great location on Khaosan Road. We got a taxi from the airport to Buddy Lodge and due to Khaosan Road being pedestrian only we had to carry all our luggage down the street that was bustling with tourist. I would advise you to get a taxi to the burger king end...

Ok, so the hotel itself isn't vegan but for vegans wanting something close to the FOUR vegan/vegetarian restaurants within a few minutes' walk, this place is great! Stayed here for five nights April 2017 with two young children. They loved it. The pool was lovely - clean and a decent temperature for my little ones. My main gripe here would...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
