        Decent hotel in the middle of Khoa San Road”

        Location is great in terms of that you can walk and be in the middle of Khao San Road and lots of stuff going on. We didnt hear a lot of noise from the street cause our room was further back. Our friend did but she was moved to a different room by request. Nice rooftop pool, no breakfast included, pretty room and nice staff. Yes I'd recommend it.

        Great location”

        We stayed here a few nights and enjoyed we were able to walk outside and be near everything. Hotel staff was helpful and nice at all times, our room was clean and bed was comfortable. We enjoyed using the gym and the outdoor pool. It does get loud at night though, since hotel is right on Khao san road, even though we were in the back of the hotel we could still hear the music coming from the bars. One night was louder than other nights, so we had to wear earplugs. That would be our only complaint, other than that we had a pleasant stay here.

        Great location, extremely loud ”

        If you want to be in the heart of everything the location is great, hotel is clean however you have to fight through a crowd of drunk people just to get in the lift as there is a nightclub entrance. Music continues till 4 in the morning and is loud loud loud so if you want to party with no sleep it’s perfect but if you plan on having a good nights sleep then it’s not the place for you. The rooftop pool was beautiful.

        Worked out just fine”

        My room at the Buddy Lodge hotel was a bit of a surprise. While the room was very quaint and cute, it was pretty dirty. I had stayed at several different places leading up to this one and this is the first where I thought “THIS is where I will finally see a cockroach” (I didn’t). It definitely had bed bugs though— I didn’t realize until I was on my way home. My legs were COVERED in bites. I felt like Buddy Lodge tried really hard to be a hotel but had somewhere along the line (several years ago), stopped putting the money into maintaining a ‘hotel.’ It worked for what I needed though.

        Quiet Hotel in the heart of Khaosan Road”

        Buddy Lodge was a sanctuary in the heart of Khaosan Road - I had asked for a quieter room and got one - once inside I could not hear the madness outside - the hotel room was clean and quant - The roof top pool was an amazing place to escape the heat and the madness of Bangkok- the staff were extremely helpful - the only issue was the bathroom was small but recently renovated - not a big deal - I would totally recommend The Buddy Lodge!

        Definitely coming back!”

        We’ve stayed at hotels in the Khaosan road area and just accepted that it would be loud at any hotel in that area. We love that area so we didn’t mind the noise. We came here and were greeted by a lovely staff! I booked the superior king but was offered a quieter room in the back but it was 2 doubles. We didn’t mind as long as it was quiet. We loved how quiet our rooms were! We were on the 5th floor by the pool. It made our last week stay in Thailand so much more enjoyable. Thank you and we will be back!

        Fab, I will be returning!”

        So, I was having a holiday and was winging it along the way using apps to book things along the way. Found this place and decided to book, having had a nightmare place on Kaosan road at the beginning of the trip I was worried about returning back to stay on the same road. But how different it was! I slept soundly, the pool was amazing, I loved getting up there for a bit of a chillout in the sun and being able to have a dip when getting too hot. Fabulous! The gym was OK... The machines were a bit hit and miss. Don't expect too much and you will be ok. They have a ping pong table and an area for muay Thai or bag practice. The place was a great find and i look forward to coming back for a longer stay next time round.

        Dear Peter, Thank you for choosing to stay at our city hotel for during your recent vacation to Thailand. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and were able to make the most of our great location in one of the main party areas in Bangkok. Our rooftop pool is a great way to relax and with it being high up on the 5th floor of the hotel you can almost forget it is right in the middle of a massive city. We truly hope you will choose the Buddy Lodge once more for your next holiday. Kind Regards John Pettengell Guest Services Manager

        Great hotel ”

        Hotel is situated in the midst of the vibrant and hectic Khao San Road. We loved it. Didn’t hear the noise late at night as we had a back room. The hotel is in a little complex with a Mac Donald’s, travel agent, tattoo place, a lively bar, men’s clothes shop and an Irish bar. The staff were pleasant but we really didn’t get to speak to them much as they seemed to be busy chatting amongst themselves. The room was great. Large comfortable bed, a small balcony (can’t sit out on it as too small), tv, wardrobe area and small bathroom. Cleaners were great. The hotel has a lovely pool but we only used it twice due to rain. The bar in the pool area is pay as you go which we found strange as we rather it was put on hotel bill as we didn’t want to carry cash on us to swim. They have a great gym also. Location is brilliant. Straight out onto the busy road with so much happening. Would stay again

        Very nice stay”

        Small, but beautiful and efficient room with canopy bed. Nice little balcony, door shutters. Small but nice pool on a hot afternoon. Rooms in the back are quiet. Great location for shopping, international restaurants, and site-seeing. Very clean. The staff is so kind and helpful. I have stayed here before and will stay again when I need a place in BKK.
