The hostel itself was quite nice. We had a twin room with an en-suite bathroom. We had to wait for ages for a member of staff to bring us toilet roll as there was none in there. The room was decorated nicely and the beds were clean. Butttt the noise was awful! It's on a really busy street with music...

Dear EllieLouBoo, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Buddy Lodge Hotel and for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor.

Was very disappointed by our treatment at this place. Had booked it as a treat for our final night of our holiday in South East Asia. At 1800 BHT (£35), it was at least 5 times more expensive that anywhere else we had stayed. As we had a flight the next evening, we had hoped to leave our bags and...

If you are a tracker that wants it all at your fingertips, this is the place for you. Located right on Kohsan Road.

Very clean but also...

The rooms are clean and well presented and represent good value for the central location. You are within walking distance to the Grand Palace/ Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho and the river. Plus you are right in the heart of the action on Khao San Road. The only negative experience was in booking our taxi to the airport at reception....

Smack in the heart of Kho San Road. Good rooms. Can get noisy, but we were noisy too. Of course, we went during big parties of Buddhist New Year. Insane parties on the street. The rooftop pool is a massive plus. And the staff accommodates the many tourists well.

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.
