If you are a tracker that wants it all at your fingertips, this is the place for you. Located right on Kohsan Road. Street food galore, shopping and live music are literally just steps out the front of the hotel. We stayed here just for one night to catch our flight back home the next morning. Very clean but also... More

The rooms are clean and well presented and represent good value for the central location. You are within walking distance to the Grand Palace/ Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho and the river. Plus you are right in the heart of the action on Khao San Road. The only negative experience was in booking our taxi to the airport at reception.... More

He each time goes out of his way to put us in a quiet room, helps with our luggage and is constantly smiling and eager to please. We really enjoyed our... More

Good gym, poor check in for the high price in the Khao San Road area. The staff are mixed. My wife speaks Thai and busted the housekeeping manager. When our TV went out the tech finally came. He was working on it when she came and told him to leave us and go fix the VIP guest's TV instead. Props... More

Smack in the heart of Kho San Road. Good rooms. Can get noisy, but we were noisy too. Of course, we went during big parties of Buddhist New Year. Insane parties on the street. The rooftop pool is a massive plus. And the staff accommodates the many tourists well.

Pictures and of room looked great, 2nd stop on kosanroad. Friendly welcome and taken to room. Pictures lived up to expectation however it could have been a little cleaner hence a 4 not a 5. It has an interior door which really keeps the noise down given the party outside. We left @ 4 in the morning and used the... More

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.
