For my first time in a foreign country, I was a little nervous on what to expect. I booked at the Buddy Lodge days after arriving in Thailand after seeing the professional environment from the friendly ladies working at the reception who were extremely helpful and sweet, not to mention the manager as well. The facility has beautiful rooms, an...

Overpriced, and anyone can come off the street and pay to use the pool so the place is filled with backpackers washing themselves in the pool. If you pay that much for a pool, you expect it not to be a COMMUNITY pool. Rooms are fine but you get the same in other cheaper hotels in the area. I'm In...

Dear Gar276, Thank you for staying at the Buddy Lodge Hotel, we are sorry to read it did not live up to your expectations. Our pool is not a community pool.

Great, travel agency with this hotel. Booked full day of elephant trekking, Tiger temple and the bridge over the river kai as well as the floating markets. Cheapish and great experience especially if you were caught for time!

This hotel is right on Khaosan Road, a place I never tire of, a people watching paradise! I booked the Deluxe King room which is at the front above the road, with a private balcony overlooking the street. The room itself had lots of nice touches; four poster bed, mini bar etc. Décor a bit dated, but far above the...

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.
