I first stayed here with another person 5 years ago and it was great for partying in Khosan Road. This time I stayed on my own. Although it is a lovely hotel with a fantastic roof top pool (I think the only one on Khosan Road to have one), because IT IS on Khosan Road, it is very, very loud... More

I stayed two nights there. The attendents were gentil, we got an upgrade from superior room to deluxe room and you get for free two water bottles. Although the fact that the hostel is located in a noisy street, the room was quiet and has a comfortable bed. The bad things about the hotel is the cleanness, the towels had... More

this was a really nice hotel for Khao San Road, if you want to stay there - its extremely noisy at night however, which didn;t bother me too much but if you're a family or want peace and quiet, well, you probably wouldn;t stay on Khao San road anyway. Nice rooms, the pool was nice though small area so got... More

In the Wikitravel guide to Khao San Road, Buddy Lodge hotel is listed in the "Splurge" category i.e in the upmarket range. In truth, it is a mid-level budget hotel - but considering that accommodation in the area is mostly at the lower end of the luxury scale, Buddy Lodge is a notch or three above that. And it's a...

Location is smack dab in the middle of all the action on Khaoson Road. Fantastic spot for the social and party minded as the location puts you in the heart of the area's entertainment/shopping zone. Terrific strip of Veggie restaurants a stones throw away, lavish roof top pool, comfy surroundings, old school thai boxing gym-fitness center, and a manager and... More

Got all the facilities you need, even got decent room service if you don't want to eat out. Very friendly people in the reception, however if you want people to bow at you and give you aromatic tissues wherever you go you can look somewhere else. This is a hotel for people who use their room to sleep and relax,... More

We had originally planned to stay for two nights but decided to check out and go somewhere else after one. The room itself was clean and tidy but was looking very run down and probably needed a good spring clean/repaint. Quite a lot of street noise which is inevitable on Khao San Rd. We probably wouldnt get accommodation in this... More

Dear RebeccaB333, Thank you for staying at both the Buddy Lodge and Buddy Boutique Inn during your recent visit to the capital of Thailand. We understand your comments about the noise from outside the hotel. Unfortunately, Khaosan Road and the late night nature of this street is both our greatest asset, as well as being one of our pitfalls. Our... More
