I've stayed here a few times and most of the rooms are nice. Some are so-so. The rooftop pool is a major plus. Just be ready to hear the thumping music from Ko Sahn Road for half the night. But if you're going to stay on Ko Sahn, this is probably your best choice.

Perfectly located on the famous Khaosan Road, Buddy became our loving refuge from the beautiful chaos that is Bangkok.

Rooms are an average size but very modern and clean. The pool is great and reception is very helpful.

We loved the ability to soak up the drama on the streets and slip into our hotel without walking too far.

Stayed: February 2014

We just left buddy lodge after 3 nights and I couldn't recommend it more. Our luggage never arrived in Bangkok but the staff did everything they could to help Us. Rooms were quiet despite being in the heart of the Khao San road and very, very clean. There is a safe in the room which is always useful and free bottles of water. The rooftop pool is gorgeous and has a bar and free towels. We really couldn't recommend it more

We stayed 3 nights in the Buddy Lodge and found it really well run and friendly. John welcomed us warmly and immediately ironed out a problem we had with our booking. Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable and has all the facilities you need including fridge,safe,a decent shower and even a balcony. The rooftop pool is great for relaxing in after a day's sightseeing. Our only issue was the noise from late night partying on khaosan road but you can't expect silence on khaosan road and it is very central. Its very quiet in the room all day so wear earplugs at night or ask for a quieter room as I think some rooms at the back may well be quieter. John is an asset to the hotel who always had a smile for each guest even though he must see hundreds passing through. Indeed all the staff were smiley and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are in Bangkok. Thanks John and everyone at buddy Lodge.

We stayed here for 2 nights in Janauary before heading on down to Koh Samui , We arrived at midnight at Khao San Road but the taxi driver didn't point out which direction we should be heading ,so after a few attempts of showing Thai people our hotel map and walking down streets we finally arrived !
The check in was speedy and then given our room key we were on the 2nd floor.
The room was nice but i think a little overpriced , The bathroom was ok and the beds were hard but perfectly fine to sleep in ,its right in the middle of everything. We used the roof top pool and that was amazing so relaxing especially when the suns going down on the city of Bangkok .
Everyone's got to experience a massage that they do just down the street , I had back shoulder and head massage with a pedicure and manicure and that cost just £9 i wish it was those prices back home !
So overall we had a great time and i would definitely stay here again

21Jesswan,

Thank you for choosing to stay at our city hotel for during your recent vacation to Thailand.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and were able to make the most of our great location in one of the main party areas in Bangkok.

Our rooftop pool is a great way to relax and with it being high up on the 5th floor of the hotel you can almost forget it is right in the middle of a massive city.

We truly hope you will choose the Buddy Lodge once more for your next holiday.

Kind Regards

Great rooms, nice pool, good staff, helpful manager and excellent value. The rooms have a bit of personality and I'm pretty sure this is the best accommodation in and around koh San Road. Quiet room too though I'm sure that's not possible for all rooms. A fabulous choice to start or end your stay in Thailand
