noisy and in the middle of a party zone. i think it should state this clearly on the website to avoid disappointed guests like myself. i would not stay here again. i feel the website is misleading :-(

Buddy Lodge is in the heart of one of the busiest night market streets. The street (Kao San rd) has an amazing atmosphere. Buddy Lodge is clean, and there was an enormous king bed that was really comfy. Air conditioning worked well and was a welcome relief. The roof top pool and loung / bar area was outstanding. Night time...

Very clean room and courteous staff, who were always kind and helpful. The location is excellent, though the road is extremely loud at night. This wasn't a problem, however, as my room faced away from Kao San Road. Only issue is perhaps the rooms could do with upgrading as they look a bit tired - tiny problem, though. I would...

Hotel in the middle of Khao San Road. A lot to do, to see, to taste and to hear there. But impossible to sleep before 2.30 am... A pity...We enjoyed the swimmingpool on top of the roof but it needs an upgrade. Poor breakfast.

My boyfriend and I have just had a 3 night stay at the buddy lodge hotel. Location is great as it's just set back on Khao San road. We booked a deluxe double room and stayed in room number 202. Although our room was very nice, I would probably advise people to just go for a superior room. The reason...

It could have been a lot worse. There was poor quality wifi, a view-less balcony, and a fairly acceptable en-suite. The roof top pool and bar we only went to for about ten seconds. It was horribly over priced, but you HAVE to stay on Koa San Road, and granted that it wasn't so bad. It also had a handy...

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.
