Loved the place and the rooms, clean and comfortable, not so noisy even if in the middle of chaotic Khaos San Road. Couldn't be placed better. Amazing and refreshing swimming pool to enjoy after walking the city for hours. If I ever go back to Bangkok, I do not need anything else than this place. I loved it.

Stayed here with my sis. Got two luxurious rooms with double beds for about $40 USD/room/night. Location was great (right on the busy if rather touristy Khaosan Rd), rooms were lovely and clean, beds were very comfortable. Rooftop pool and bar was a great way to cool off after walking around all day and staff was very accommodating, helping us...

We only had one night in Bangkok and wanted to stay somewhere central and near Khaosan Road, so chose Buddy Lodge. Khaosan Road was closed to traffic, so taxi left us on the corner of Khaosan Road, but walk to Buddy Lodge was only approx 80 meters. Check in was quick and efficient, we booked superior rooms which were on...

This hotel is located in the centre of the backpacker area. Our room was on the fifth floor at the back so very quiet in comparison to other hotels in this area. I think this is pick of hotels if staying in this area. Highly recommend to anyone. Would rate higher if included free breakfast!

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.
