We have stayed in the Buddy Lodge on Khaosan Road several times now, and always enjoy our stay there. The staff are friendly and helpful; carrying your bags for you the minute you arrive outside the main entrance. Taxis in Bangkok can drive right along Khaosan Road saving you a walk in the heat carrying your luggage. We have found... More

Right in the middle of Khao San road so good location- we arrived right in the middle of the Thai new year so a bit hectic getting to it as they shut the road off to traffic. Room was very clean and good for the money. Rooftop pool was nice and clean and they provide you with towels etc.

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
