Ive got a bit of a soft spot for Buddys as i rememeber it when it was the only place on Kao San with a pool which had a tree house above it with some loin clothed European guy apparently living in it. What it has become today is a long way from that. The rooms are great, clean with...

I brought the family here for 3 nights because the rooms seemed to have atmosphere, unlike a lot of bland Bangkok hotel rooms. However, this really isn't a family hotel. Ok, it has a rooftop swimming pool, but it's a sort of trendy one for hanging out with a cocktail or two. The local area is clubland ! Good for...

The previous good reviews and pictures for this establishment have genuinely shocked me as they do not do describe the hotel at all. We stayed here for one night and are quite frankly glad that was all we had to endure. Everything was dirty! we even found pubic hairs and stains in the supposed clean bed sheets. There was thick...

First impression wasn't great. When we booked, we were offered 9am check in subject to availability. On arrival, we were told the room wouldn't be ready till 1pm .

Great. My Thai wife and I have stayed here several times. We stay here for the gym, primarily.

Location: this is perfect (given you want to stay at KhaoSan road), with lots of shops and nighlife around, walkable distance to the Grand Palace, etc. Very noisy at night, but if all you wanted was a good night of sleep, don't stay in KhaoSan. Must say, even though it was really noisy in the lobby, and we could still...

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.
