Dear Number2 Girl, Thank you for staying at the Buddy Lodge Hotel earlier this month, we are glad to read that for the most part you enjoyed your stay here. We are aware of the noise from the nearby Khaosan Road and that it is a big issue for our hotel. Over the years we have tried many different ways of combating this including sound proofing some of the worse affected rooms with double glazing, especially if they are close to the main road. This has had limited effect though as the problem is with the vibration from the bass coming from the bar opposite. We are sorry once again that this impacted on your stay. Kind Regards, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager gsm@buddygroupthailand.com

Been many times, since 1988 when it was only paper thin plywood cubicles for rooms. It has come a long way and is now a professionally run business with everything working well and rooms with an old indochine charm. Nice big balconies, to hang out after using the roof top pool.

First time in Bangkok, wife and I decided to go the road most traveled and stayed on Khao San. Didn’t really know what to expect from the area, but suffice it to say the Buddy Lodge soundly exceeded our expectations. Hotel was very clean and charming, staff was very helpful.

No Sky train but you can catch the MRT to Hua Lamphong - 5.5km away but the traffic is heavy so about 30min from there in taxi - less time in a tuk. We used to use a tuk from National Stadium which is in BTS - only about 20-30mins from there.

What time is check in?
Check-in and check-out time is pretty standard across Thailand: 2pm check-in (though later is accommodated as well), 12pm check-out - no room for negotiations; early check-in is not a thing in Thailand. However, I can tell you the manager at Buddy Lodge both understands English and tourism very well, and is familiar with as well as accommodating of early-check-in requests. (Because what do you do for 2 hours if you decided to switch hotels?)

Hi is there irons in rooms? Packing to come right now
I don't know - sorry. I'm sure the hotel would arrange one if you ask though - they're very well equipped. I hope you enjoy your trip!

Dear Helen Eades Thank you for your message. We do allow a limited amount of outside paying guests to use the swimming pool here. This depends on availability at that time and the price per person is 200 Thai Baht. If you arrive in the morning you should have no problem getting a ticket, but be aware we are usually very busy in the afternoon. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager

"Deluxe rooms have a nice patio and overall comfort. 321 has direct view of Khaosan Road from the patio, music noise just at night."
"Best rooms near the pool."
"Try to stay at the front of the hotel and away from bars if possible."
"Get a room at the back of the building to avoid some of the noise."
"not at the streetside !"
