For a three star hotel on khao San Road, I wasn't expecting a lot but was pleasantly surprised. Reception were very helpful and spoke good English. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The pool area was also very welcome after a long day sightseeing, thought they did not allow you to take your own drinks. We were...

We planned a 2 week trip to try and see as much of Thailand as possible in the short time we had. 1st stop..Kao San Road! Now we are over 30 and knew what to expect. We limited ourselves to a 2 night stay knowing we couldn't handle anymore and it was just the right amount of time. The hotel...

Stayed at the Buddy Lodge for what was my first visit to Thailand. From the initial online booking process to the check in I found the service and care exemplary. My room was spotless and very comfortable. Pool on the roof was amazing....being on Khoa San Rd you are never far away from the vibrant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

I have to say we were a little disconcerted when we first arrived as the Khaosan Road is very busy, especially in the evenings and throughout the night. The place is absolutely buzzing and a fantastic place to stay with great bars, live music and discos and a plethora of good cafes and restaurants. The hotel is tucked away behind...

Me and 4 friends wanted to go here to use the pool as 2 other friends were in there. Staff said there was no room but they ended up letting us in as it was my birthday. 200baht each was a bargain! Great afternoon! Lovely little pool and the mojitos were delicious!

Why the tittle you ask? Because if you want a calm place and a cultural experience (well this is cultural too) just dont go to Khao San Road. Dont pay attention to the "so noisy i couldnt sleep" reviews: first of all, you can easily sleep; second, if you want to sleep 12 hours, i repeat, dont go to Khao...

Thanks for a fabulous stay at the Buddy Lodge Hotel. We only stayed one night before flying home to the uk. Booked in with Dave on reception.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood 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.
