We stayed here twice on two separate occasions whilst stopping over in Bangkok and we felt extremely welcome throughout our stay. The staff are very friendly and provided the best customer service we experienced whilst traveling throughout Thailand and Cambodia. The staff were also incredibly helpful in terms of advice about things to do and making our stay as easy... More

Wow that was a lame title. But seriously. The buddy lodge is a perfect little oasis within a dingy area. Cmon, let's face it. It's khaosan road! It's like a mini Vegas. I like the scene of it, but after awhile sometimes you need to just kick back and breath a second. And that's where buddy lodge comes into play.... More

I stayed here at the start of my travels around south east Asia with my girlfriend. The staff are not friendly at reception, the mini bar is completely over price including a small bottle of water for 50,000 bhat. Also the location is on koh San road so this makes for a very noisy and unpleasant stay. There are very... More

The hotel is in prime location on Koh San Road. Room was very nice and clean. Tuk tuk/cab needed to get to other places as metro station is out the way. MBK mall is approximately 20 minutes away without traffic and the lively Sukhumvit is about 30 minutes away. The main train station is only a 10 minute tuk tuk... More

This is probably one of the nicest places on Khao San Rd. The rooms are decent with a balcony. The staff are all friendly. The gym is okay, not the best stuff but certainly not bad.

Excellent location in central Khaosan Road. Amazingly quiet room on the fifth floor, right by the pool at the back of the building (room 501). Awesome pool and great gym. Very helpful and friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. A good value. Lovely colonial styling. Will stay here again.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
