I stayed at the buddy lodge hotel for 3 nights whilst on my journey travelling around Thailand and I was impressed with how kind the staff were, the room (tv, balcony) the rooftop swimming pool (with poolside bar) and a luxury gym at my disposal all day everyday at no extra cost. Bang in the middle of the strip with... More

My sister and I originally scheduled 3 nights at Buddy. We needed up extending an extra 5 nites. The service was fantastic. Steven, the manager was phenomenal. He was so accommodating and welcoming. We appreciate all the help. The room was charming. The pool was gorgeous and quite a hidden gem amongst the chaos of Kaosan Road. Once again, we... More

The hotel is situated in a small shopping mall on Khao San Road. As you enter, expectations are low as there is nothing to indicate this will be a nice hotel. But the rooms are nicely decorated, clean and unexpectedly characterful! The pool area on the roof is very nice, smart and clean, albeit small considering outside guests are allowed... More

Stayed here for Songkran festival, great location in the middle of Khaosan road. Although if your a light sleeper it probably isn't the hotel for you, as even the rooms facing away from the street are noisy. The pool is fantastic when you get too hot wondering round the city (although the beer prices at the pool are pretty steep).... More

Stayed at here for 1 night which is located in the midst of it all! Room was good for the price. Balcony opens to no view. Located right on Khaosan Road, so you see it all!! Great for shopping and partying. It's very noisy, but my room was in the back, so I didn't hear anything at night. John at... More

It was a good central location to base yourself for a few nights while you find your way around the city. Rooms are a little old but very clean and big, staff were very friendly too. We didn't even use the pool as we wanted to make the most of being in the city. If you don't plan on spending... More

We were recommended by a friend of my boyfriends to stay here but after looking on TripAdvisor I wasn't sure if we should stay.. Purely because of the reviews that it's so loud at night. We went with it anyway as the location is great but I requested a quiet room via booking.com. We arrived late at night in the... More

So did my usual and search the internet and Tripadvisor for somewhere reasonable to stay. And Buddy Lodge seemed to fit the bill.
