We came here on our last day in bangkok thinking it was going to be a great place to stay near koh San road before we left to koh samui.. we were quoted one price on booking.com and they raised their price by almost double when we got there!.. the experience was nice but wouldn't do it again

Dear Jesus A, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Buddy Lodge Hotel and for taking the time to write a few words about us on this popular Travel Forum.

I've had a lovely friday/saturday at buddy lodge. Very friendly staff and a nice swimming pool. All my gratitude go out to the night staff that have to deal with drunk guests coming early in the morning after a night of drinking. The nightshift girl at the reception handled everything in a very professional way.

Hotel was in a great location, really friendly and helpful staff, room was spacious and clean. Definetly stay there again. There is a roof top bar, a good gym, we stayed in a room that faced another building. Not the greatest view but quite considering your in a busy part of town.

Great pool Great location Surroundings are noisy but you know it from the start and choose this location because of the activity in the neighbourhood (and they provide earplugs just in case 😉) Great service from the staf but especially...

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.
