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.
Dear Lillian, Thank you very much for the compliments on our services and facilities. We would like to express our appreciation for your positive review and our whole team were delighted you had such an enjoyable stay. We hope that we will be able to welcome you back soon to the Buddy Lodge Hotel in Bangkok. Kind Regards John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
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.
Dear Austin, Thank you for choosing the Buddy Lodge for your recent trip to Bangkok. Thank you also for your very encouraging comment. As you highlighted it, our location is exceptional as it is at the heart of one of the must see destinations in Bangkok, with easy transportation to many nearby cultural sites. It was a pleasure welcoming you to our hotel. Kind Regards John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
Impossible to sleep at night because of the bars. This hotel should have double glazing and shutter, they don’t have anything and no reimbursement after complaints!
Dear Laura, We are very sorry to hear about you poor experience at our hotel. Khaosan Road itself is a vibrant, lively place and as a result of this it can be noisy at night time. We hope you have a great holiday in Thailand and once again apologize for your stay here. Kind Regards, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
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.

Good location and good swimming pool”
I stayed here for 3 nights. It has really cute swimming pool, it is not that big tho I really liked it. And the location is so good. If you are planning to go to khaosan and enjoy the night life, this hotel is perfect. I felt like this hotel and the room is a little bit old but it was alright
Dear Danbi, Thank you for your positive feedback about your stay. We are glad to read that we meet your expectation. At the Buddy Lodge Hotel we aim to try and provide an oasis in the sea of chaos, which is the Khaosan Road. Looking forward to welcoming you again upon your next Bangkok visit. Kind Regards John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
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.
Dear Jamie, Thank you for choosing the Buddy Lodge and for taking the time to write a few words about your stay here on Agoda. We would also like to apologize to you regarding the condition of your room. Our Housekeeping Manager and her staff work hard to ensure all our rooms are cleaned to the necessary standard and are sorry if you felt we fell short on this occasion. We are sorry you did not enjoy staying on the Khaosan Road and hope you had better experiences elsewhere during your vacation to Thailand. Kind Regards John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
Super cool hotel in Khaosan area”
Very good and affordable price hotel in Khaosan area. We found a cool swimming pool in the 5th floor, helpful travel agency, tailor, McDonald and dessert cafeteria within the same building with the hotel. I believe this hotel will help you maximize your experience in Khaosan area.
Dear Hoai, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback on this website. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back in order the team may further extend their Thai hospitality. Kind Regards, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
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!
Dear Tasha, We would like to extend our warmest thanks to both of you for choosing to stay at the Buddy Lodge Hotel. At the Buddy Group we understand the value of good customer service and we are prepared to try and help out valued guests. We really appreciate mentioning that this was evident during your last stay. Kind Regards John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
Loud and hard to sleep but that was expected. Great location to start your journey. Had a nice pool and workout room. McDonald's downstairs for when your all Thai'd out. Two nightclubs front and back, it's own travel agency downstairs, coffee shop downstairs, bakery, and more. Everything you would need.
Gem on Khaosan Road”
We had an absolute amazing stay at the Buddy Lodge Hotel. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. John the manager really goes the extra mile in terms of customer service. The rooms are great and the pool is the cherry on top. We look forward to coming back!

Good price with good service! Water supply are unstable and the room is a bit dilapidated.
Dear Yiu, Thank you for sharing your time in Bangkok. We are happy to hear that you experienced the most of the city from the hotel, as it is really quite accessible from our location at the heart of "Historic Old Quarter" With so much to see and do, I hope that you managed to find some time to unwind as well. Thank you once again for staying at our Colonial style Hotel. Kind Regards, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
Noisy at night.
Dear Pitsanu, We understand that the Khaosan Road location is very unique, difficult to describe and may not be everyone's cup of tea. It is loud, it is crowded and it has many people passing through here everyday, but we find on the whole many people do like our prime location. Thank you for staying in our city hotel. Yours Sincerely, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
Dear Lee, Thank you for your review and 8.4 score. Kind Regards, John Pettengell Guest Services Manager
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.

This was an excellent hotel located right in the heart of Bangkok. I can't say enough nice things about the staff at this hotel. They were informative, professional and just plain friendly. They offered options for transportation and tours that would have been otherwise difficult to arrange on our own. I hope to make it back again soon and will definitely stay at the Buddy Lodge again.

Good and reasonable prices hotel ”
Good minibar and lovely little room with a small terrace garden
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
Affordable hotel ”
Hotel at the heart of Khao san road ,rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and bath is a bit small but does the job, Staff are friendly and helpful, Has a great gym and a nice rooftop pool , drinks are pricey. Can be noisy but can request a room at the back of hotel

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.
