I used buddy for 2 nights due to a last minute change to my plans. The staff were polite and helpful. The room was very basic with a weak electric shower but for 600 bht it was ok,if you are on a tight budget it's not bad.

For the price the rooms are small and very unremarkable considering the selection in the area, however the area is off the road enough for quiet and better air quality than the main strips nearby and the reception is manned 24/7 for a good feeling of security. The main area on the main floor is lovely, and there is a...

Had to make a last minute booking, this was the closest place to where we were that had a vacancy. The room itself was small, we got a twin bed. The room had a/c and a decent shower, as you as you are not looking to be spending a lot of time in there. The room will do. We paid...

It is now called Barbara Guest House although it is still listed as Buddy Guest House in some sites. The rate used to be as low as 250 bt in the low season but this year the rate had gone up to 550 bt per night. It is still a very fair value considering cleaness and the facilities. However, the...

My 2 kids and I stopped at Buddy Guesthouse for coffee one morning. (okay, the coffee was just for me, but I stopped at Buddy because there's space for them to run around, and it's green and inviting looking, plus I saw they had a "proper" espresso machine) Barbara, the owner, came over while we were there and took a...

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the place quite nice and central. Located just outside the walled Old City, it was conveniently located near the night bazzar and Warorot market. Situated down a quiet lane, it was a good place to sleep. We had a room on the 2nd floor. The room was small but enough for 2...
