Quiet little spot on one of the more hectic streets. Nice pool, gym and helpful staff. Down the quieter end of Khao San rojnd and good central location for exploring Bangkok. I managed to leave a suit behind in the room and they went out of their way to keep it aside and return it to me!

We have been traveling to and through Thailand for many years and stumbled across this hotel about two years ago. Now we always come back here several times a year when passing through Bangkok. Today we left after a 7 nights stay and we are booked back in later this month for another few nights on our way home from Our onward travels. The location is fantastic and although you are right in the middle of Khao San Rd., the rooms are incredibly quiet. Everything is clean, the beds are comfortable, staff is friendly and the best part is the lovely rooftop pool where you can sunbath and enjoy a cold drink after a morning of sightseeing or a late night around the old town. You have excellent food, cheap massages and plenty of places for a drink and some entertaining people watching right outside your door step. Taxis and tuktuks are easily accessible on the next corner 10 meters from the hotel if you are looking to venture anywhere outside of Khao San. We can only say good things about this hotel and highly recommend it for anyone stopping in Bangkok. Perfectly suitable for solo travelers, couples and families of all ages.

We stayed at Buddy Lodge for 5 days. It's ideally placed to use as a base for anyone who wants to expore the temples and see much of the old town. There's a real 'buzz' to being on the Khaosan Road which may seem a bit like a culture shock at first, but we soon got used to the hubbub. Our room had a balcony and the room itself had a great charm which we loved getting back to each day after a hot day sight-seeing. Importantly, the room was always clean and tidy, as was the hotel common areas. The staff were most friendly. John (the Group Guest Services Manager) exceptionally resourceful, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and succeeded in dealing with all our demands and questions on a daily basis. If/when we go back to Bangkok we will certainly hope to stay at Buddy Lodge as our first choice and would recommend other people who are planning a trip to seriously consider staying there too.

My Partner and I stayed at Buddy Lodge and it was a great experience. The hotel room was really clean and comfortable. The pool and Gym are excellent and the location is right on khao San. The highlight of our stay was the wonderful hospitality shown to us from John, the Manager and his team. Always willing to please and very helpful & friendly. If you are looking for a clean place to stay with great amenities and don’t mind being close to the action on Khao San Rd this is the place to stay.
