“Just what we needed!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights when I arrived in Bangkok. Although it is more expensive than some places in Bangkok, it was just what I needed after a gruelling flight.
The staff on the desk were exceptionally helpful and made us feel very welcome. Always smiling and happy to help!
The room is obviously not the Ritz but there are much, much worse out there. We stayed on the 4th floor and it had a balcony (small but enough to enjoy!), a large window, air con, double bed (comfy compared to other beds I have stayed in since), and a hot shower!
We were also able to use the pool for free in the sister hotel 2mins down kho san road.
No complaints from us!
1st night in bkk? Stay here!
Thankyou guys!

We only stayed here for 2 nights, coming from a 5 star hotel in dubai to this was a massive eye opener, the taxi man dropped us at the bottom of khosan road because he said he couldn't get up it and left us to struggle through the middle of khosan road with 2 suitcases dodging market stalls people on scooters men with monkeys and all the rest of it! Then when we got there they said they never had a double room for the first night so we had 2 single bed and then to top it off when we got to the room we had no window at all so it was like sleeping in a cement block. But location was fantastic but this is a travellers hotel and was a good price!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window! You have to pay more but it's worth it

Dear Jody M,

Thank you for staying at the Buddy Boutique Inn and for writing a review of your time here on this website.

Khaosan Road is a very busy part of Bangkok and at night time it can sometimes feel like it never really stops. In the evening the road becomes pedestrianised and taxi’s cannot drop you off directly outside the hotel - usually they will stop at either the Police Station or Burger King

For all future travelers as a point of reference we are located near the top of the road, a short distance from the Police Station.

As we have mentioned before the Boutique Inn is a small hotel with only 23 rooms. When our guests make a reservation they can ask for a preferred room type, but please note this is only a preference, not a guarantee. We do try to ensure the majority of our guests get the room they requested, but sometimes it is just not possible.

Thank you for saying you stay was good value for money and that once you got used to it was a brilliant location to stay.

Kind Regards

Dear Buddlefish,

Thank you for writing a few words regarding your stay here on Trip Advisor, we really appreciate you taking the time to review our hotel.

We can now confirm that we have managed to fix the problem with the cable TV and now offer Western TV channels, including the BBC World Service.

We are sorry if the recent work conducted on the fire escapes was noisy during the day time. We attempted to limit the disruption by working only from 13:00pm until 18:00pm. We also put messages up in the main reception informing guests we would be working on this project during this period and we are sorry if this affected your stay in anyway.

Thank you for your kind words about our very clean rooms and friendly staff, we are a small team and it is nice to receive your praise.

We hope you might consider us again in the future.

Kind Regards

Althought there is nothing wrong with this hostel as the staff were very friendly (especially john) and the hotel is in a fantastic location. The lack of windows in the room let it down a bit for me so it felt almost prison like and impossible to tell what time of day it was without checking the time. The hotel is a great price though although it can be a bit loud at night so I wouldnt advise for people wanting a quiet nights sleep but then why stop near khao san road if thats what you are after.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows before arriving.

After finding and checking many rooms in khao san road, we ended up here. most of the places we see round either small or dirty or no windows or if good then out of our budget.

When we saw the hotel in pic we just loved it, thn waited if the hotel is actualy as good as its in the picture. And it was.

The rooms are small but very clean and well designed. I will say its a boutique designed place.

Ya the worst thing is there is only 2 channels in tv and both are thai. But who wants tv in Khao san u are there to party ; )

Thank you for your nice review and for choosing to stay at the Buddy Boutique Inn, at the heart of the Backpacker area in Bangkok.

We were so pleased to read your comments about your room and the way you felt the website pictures did the room justice.

We understand and are sorry about the lack of Television channels available, The Management are aware of this issue and are looking into ways we can correct this problem in the future.

Dear Bibijung,

Thank you for choosing the Buddy Boutique Inn on Khaosan Road.

Everyone here was delighted to learn that you were happy with our stylish, modern rooms and found them to be clean and tidy.

As you say above Khaosan Road is a great place to start any vacation in Thailand as it offers a little bit of everything from good food, to great night-life and a local market.

All the best until your next visit.

Fairly basic but with all the essentials, and a few added extras. Rooms were neat and clean and I was happy to return for 2 additional stays. I was lucky enough to have rooms with a window, but some of the rooms don't have this. Good location if you want to be in the 'tourist' district. Easy walking/tuk-tuk distance to a number of attractions, markets, etc. Staff very helpful and friendly, but didn't seem able to provide much tourist-related information. The courtyard restaurant downstairs plays fairly loud music until about 2h00 or 3h00, which made sleeping a bit of a challenge.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep, ask for a room located away from the courtyard restaurant downstairs. Otherwis...
