For a solo novice in Bangkok, Buddy Lodge was an appropriate initiation into an overwhelming city. The rooms are lovely - a welcome escape from the heat and mayhem outside. John, who works at the concierge was particularly warm, friendly, and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one night. Room was not big, but ok for 3 people. The room looked very nice. Bed was comfortable, best on the trip. Pool was good, but cold water. Wifi worked ok. breakfast was good. Right at Khaosan rd, but no noise in the room. I liked the hotel.

Hospitable staff, they were always friendly and ready to help. Beds are super comfortable and cozy. Only thing I would say needs improving is soundproofing and the variety of dishes for room service. Other than that I was pretty happy.

Our stay in Buddy Lodge was absolutely brilliant, although we didn't care for Bangkok itself, the staff and facilities at Buddy Lodge made the best of a bad situation. Staff couldn't do enough to help us with flights/taxis etc, excellent value for money.

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.
