If you want to stay and experience Khao San Road, Buddy Lodge is a great option. The rooms are nice and clean, the pool is wonderful and the perfect escape from the craziness below and the fitness centre does the job. It's easy to get around from the hotel to see the sights. We didn't interact with the staff all... More

The hotel is fabulous! It's located on Khaosan Road. Rooms were a little nosy at night but this is what you would expect for any hotel/hostel on this road.

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.
