Our Stay ”

2nd time staying here, and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay for a couple of nights, or more, before travelling further afield, unless you prefer staying nearer to Bangkok centre. The hotel itself is very relaxing and comfortable, and great value for money. All the facilities were clean and maintained to a high standard. The staff were very friendly and there to help at anytime, and always had a friendly smile to go with it.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Buddy Oriental Riverside was a lovely oasis in Bangkok--not extremely convenient to major sites, but entirely pleasant with excellent facilities including pools, food, and other amenities. Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was big, clean, and well-appointed.

1 Night Stay ”

Overall, this hotel has uniquely authentic Thai style rooms. Abit dark for my liking, but it was a good experience to stay in such a hotel. View of the river from the pool is good. Breakfast menu was quite extensive. Service of front office staff was good. Only issue was that there were 2 lights in my room that weren't working and we had informed the operator as well as the staff who helped us with our luggage, however no one came to fix it. They also did not have spare adaptors to lend. Location wise, it is not walkable to anywhere outside and hence taxi must be taken out to and from hotel. Not a bad stay for a 1 nighter.

This is a sleeping beauty....”

Western travellers are not comfortable with the name "Buddy" in the hotel name. They think it is a cheap low class hotel becasue of the "Buddy". It's certanily not bad to be friendly, "Buddy" -like but it's not suitable for hotel name if you want to attract westerners. Sad coz the Buddy Oriental Riverside is a fantastic hotel! A SLEEPING BEAUTY!!! I have stayed in more than 100 hotels in Thailand - from 2 stars to 5 stars (Royal orchid Sheraton, Ramada Riverside) but this is my favourite. I and my wife (who is thai) just love it. Great personal, great breakfast, 2 great pools, such beautiful decorations and artefacts, such spacious rooms, diner, outdoor restaurant by the Chao Praya river,secluded from traffic and the. And on top of that this beautiful colonial style architecture with high ceilings in rooms and everywhere.. This second time my wife and I also tried the spa with massage and that was the best we have had in all Thailand, and then we have had about 1000 massages around all Thailand, ok! And on top of it all - since the main road is a bit away,the serenity, the calmness, and just the slow river traffic... wow... I am sure you are gonna love it if you go here too. This is actually a 5 star hotel,. ok. /

A surprising hotel for better and worse”

Beautifully appointed room, riverside location, excellent restaurant

This is an amazing hotel. Its position on the river, its architecture, the clapboard interior of the rooms, the nineteenth century furniture all reminded me of nothing so much as an old Confederate Plantation House or a new Mississippi River Casino. It is a beautiful hotel, and we loved our brief stay there. If it were downriver, near the Sheraton and Shangri-la, we'd opt for it every time we are in Bangkok. But it is nowhere near the center of touristic Bangkok. We booked it because it seemed to be near Don Muang airport where we had flown in and from which we were flying out again next day. The hotel wanted 1000 baht for transport from the airport: that should have been my first clue that the hotel wasn't really close to Don Muang. (An airport limo to Silom costs the same!) The car we booked at the airport cost 850, but took fifty minutes to find the hotel. It's way to the west and way too far to visit the downtown itself. Thus, I can see how other reviews call this hotel a perfect getaway from Bangkok. It gets one far away indeed. But as a transit hotel or as a hotel from which to tour Bangkok, it might as well be on the Mississippi. BTW, a metered taxi got us from the hotel to Don Muang in forty minutes for 140 baht!!! The hotel's Thai restaurant is housed in a beautiful ante-bellum hall and a vast adjoining pier along the riverside. The fresh sea bass was magnificent. In-room internet was weak.
