We arrived in Bangkok, and the taxi dropped us off on the end of Khaosan Road and we began to walk along the busy street trying to find the buddy lodge. The road is short and so even though the buddy lodge was on the other side, we were quickly able to find it and check in. The entrance is off of the main street and hustle and bustle which was nice.
We were greeted by wonderful front desk staff who were able to answer all of our questions.
We stayed in room 409 with three people. The staff had placed an extra roll away in the room already. The room was clean, with fresh bedding and towels. We had a Juliet balcony but the view was only of other buildings. We didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room so it was exactly what we needed. We were able to sleep comfortably with ear plugs, being on the main road it does have a small amount of noise into the late night.
The internet worked very well in the hallways, front desk area and the pool but within our room we had a hard time keeping a strong enough connection. We were able to utilize it for our needs.
The pool was a nice surprise. In the middle of a busy city, the buddy lodge pool is a rooftop oasis. Nice lounge chairs, excellent ambiance and a wonderful bar staff. We truly enjoyed relaxing during the day in this spot.
The location was stellar, just steps away from all the action of Khaosan Road.
Overall price, location and comfort this hotel was excellent and we would stay again.
