On our trip to Thailand we stayed at Buddy Lodge twice - once for one night on our way to the islands and once for 3 nights on our way home. The rooms were nice and clean and were serviced every day with new towels but no change of sheets just the bed made to conserve water which I thought... More

Although in the midst of the busy Khao San Road, Buddy Lodge remains an overall quiet hotel, insulated from the outside noise. The rooms ((I've stayed in several) are superb in interior design, borrowing perhaps from Victorian colonial elegance with their hardwood floors, four-poster beds and marble bathrooms but balanced out with new Millenium comforts such as very efficient AC...

A fantastic hotel in the centre of everything but located in a shopping centre so there is no noise from the busy Khaosan road strip! The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and reasonably priced. We booked a deluxe room for £40 per night including breakfast, but there was £25 rooms available. The hotel was stylish and modern and the staff... More

Have stayed in Buddy Lodge a number of times now always great service and helpfull staff. Rooms are well finished and they have a lovely roof top pool. Best thing about Buddy is the location right on Koh San. One little annouance is the Wi-Fi where you have to enter a code every time, it would be much better if... More

I stayed one night, flying in from Tashkent en route to San Francisco. I wanted to stay in the (in)famous Khao San Road since I will be moving to Bangkok end of July and probably won't be heading in the direction of the Old City too often. The room: Spacious, bright and airy. Nice touch with the old school decor... More

Really good location for the busy lifestyle but couldn't hear any of this when in the clean spacious room. Staff couldn't do any more for us unless the joined us for the full trip!!! Nothing was a problem for example- the air condition in our room played up and within 5-10 minutes it was fixed!! Thanks for the lovely stay.... More

The hotel is fabulous I've stayed here many times always my first choice when staying near Kohsan Road. Look forward to seeing you in December 2014. A large room and very clean the roof top pool is a great place to meet people. The gym is basic but free which is a bonus.

I've stayed at Buddy Lodge 3 times now and it's perfect. Embarrassed to admit that my most recent stay was my first visit to the rooftop pool, which was a quiet little oasis from the busy city.
