Living in Asia, Bangkok is an ideal weekend getaway and my most frequented destination is Buddy Lodge. To be honest I think I’ve stayed there well over 10 times since I first stumbled across it in 2008. What I like about Buddy Lodge is that it perfectly complements the Khao San Road experience. For anyone that isn’t familiar with Khao... More

Only booked for one night because i needed to be in khao san, wasnt expecting much but was pleasently surprized. Colonial style rooms recently renovated, im guessing. Right in the hart of everything, once you find reception in amongst the bars, tattoo parlours and clubs, the entrance is not obviouse. Pool is small but deep so good to swim in... More

Very good and helpful staff, speaking good English. Our room was a deluxe double, nice and clean, comfortable beds, lovely antique deco, mini bar and free wifi, good air conditioning . On Khaosan rd, in the thick of Bangkok's hustle and bustle, yet quiet enough with a nice pool on 5th floor, quite close to the grand palace. We would... More

The staff here were great, and so helpful. The room was ultra clean, and if there were any problems they would send somebody up instantly to help. Stayed here on 2 separate occasions and couldn't have been happier!! Highly recommend this place if you are looking for comfort and good service. See you in December, Buddy Lodge!!

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood 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.
