This payment was the same amount as your room rate which is why it looked...

Let's face it, it's on Khao San road, no place on that street can honestly say there is no outside noise, but the room was amazing, location amazing, bed was so good to sleep in, pool was awesome. If you're sick of dorms and need privacy. Stay here.

We stayed in Buddy Lodge Hotel for 3 nights during our very short journey in Bangkok. What to say? Simply beautiful, everything was perfect in our room.

A little dated. Expensive for what you get. No breakfast included. Wifi temperamental. For that price-point, I expected a lot more. Location is great though and I felt it was safe. Pool bar very expensive.

We have stayed at buddy's a few times now. We like being on Khao San road. It's not for everyone, noisy at night and very busy but we like it. Buddy's has a nice pool, decent rooms and is pretty cheap. I'd ask for rooms away from the street, they are quieter.

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.
