“Exquisite Boutique Hotel”

The hotel in located in a aisle close to the main street. I love the balcony that overlooks the street and the lobby bar. The service is very attentive. There was something minor with the air-conditioning system, so the lady who assisted us checking in insisted that they have a technician stop by to fix that.
There is a full function kitchen in the room, so this place might be great for extended stay.
Didn't use the pool, but the restaurant, though small, is such as lovely and elegant place, which a very affordable quality. We had dinner and breakfast there, which all turned out to be a smart choice, especially when I was so sick of the buffet in all five stars.

“Cannot Fault A Single Thing”

Not the first time we have stayed at BYD Lofts and most definitely will not be the last.

Rooms spacious, modern, clean and airy whilst at the same time, cannot hear a single noise from outside. Great sized balconies and all fixtures/fittings you would expect from a serviced apartment-type hotel experience.

Staff from front-desk to security are all super-friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble.

Great breakfasts (primarily because they cook to order as opposed to everything pre-cooked), very friendly breakfast/restaurant staff and the restaurant itself has a wide/varied menu.

Having the 'Wine Collection store located on the premises is great and all told, one of the best places we have stayed in Phuket over the past 20 years - and we visit 4-5 times a year and so we do know what's good and what's not!

“It will be our first choice if we go to Phuket again”

My family ( 2 adults and 3 kids) spent nine nights at BYD Lofts Boutique Hotel & Serviced Apartments.

Its location was just great. On one hand it was in a beautiful and quiet street. On the other hand it was only ten minutes to the Patong Beach and fifteen minutes to the business street by walk. By five minutes walking, we found many good restaurants and marts. It was easy to take a taxi here.

As you can see the pictures from its website, the rooms were so beautiful and cool. Our apartment was a two-bedrooms deluxe one. The big living room equipped with big leather sofa, DVD, and surrounded sound CD. My wife loved the kitchen and dining room very much. It couldn’t be even better to make a cup of coffee using the coffee machine or take an iced beer from the fridge when we were back from a sea tour or when we had to cancel our sea trip due to the dad weather. All my families once sat on the sofa and enjoyed “Kongfu Panda “and “The Croods” (we took the disc from home on purpose to enjoy)or watched sports on TV happily. It was amazing.

After we had tried 5 top ranking restaurants according to the other tourists’ recommendation, we had at least 7 meals at BYD restaurant. The price was more or less the same as the top ranking restaurants but tastier and better service. My wife and I loved the lamb, salmon, and red wines, while the kids loved the seafood pizza and pasta. All staff was always nice and talked to us friendly, with smile.

All my families loved BYD Lofts a lot. We loved its decoration atmosphere, food, and service. In one word, we loved everything of BYD.

BYD Lofts was a real smiling land. It will be our first choice if we go to Phuket again.

“Superb All Round Experience”

The Staff's attitudes were 'awesome 9; - so very friendly across the board.

Suites spacious, clean and well appointed - towels very soft. Breakfast very good as not a buffet, cooked to order and staff very welcoming. Hire airport pick-up and laptop provided with Internet access for the route back to hotel - handy for catching up on emails and not having to load up your own laptop.

Location 10 minute walk from the busy Jung Ceylon/Bangla Road area but has everything around it including wine Collection on the ground floor that sells a wide variety of wines.

Highly recommended for solo travellers or couples but if we had our family with us, the pool would be a bit small for the children I'd suggest.

“Awesome staff”

Great birthday celebration for a tired mum with 2 little kids and a devoted nanna. Staff were fabulous. Room was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped to cook but we didn't bother. Loved the welcome flowers

“A great balanced hotel”

This was the second time I stayed at BYD. I travel to Phuket several times a year and find BYD is for me the best overall experience.

The people working at the hotel are excellent, Service for me is great. Friendly and available to assist, while giving you privacy.

The rooms are clean and large. Two tellevisions each with a large selection of english stations. New and well maintained appliances in the kitchen and comfortable shower.

BYD is a great hotel to stay at when visiting Phuket and close to the nightlife (5-10 minute walk). Perfect for me since its not in the center of the touristy nighylife but very close to enjoy.

“Amazing experience in BYD”

It was the best hotel i have ever stayed in Patong,the service here is hommization, the facilities here are fashion and clean.Fifteen minuets away from Junoceylon and Bangla street by walk make this hotel far away from noise. I travel to Phuket six days and two nights stayed in BYD,me and my wife feel very comfortable and enjoyable there with the lovely staff.Next time to Patong,beyond adoubt,BYD will be my only choice.

“2nd year/review + Travel Tips”

RECOMMENDED: 2nd year/review at BYD. Consistent quality in an inconsistent land. Rooms are semi-apartments with plenty of room to relax. It's located in Patong city itself but on a relative quiet side street (so no views). This is a hotel not a resort. Its a 10 minute walk to Patong Beach (there are better see notes). Keeping staff trained is a nightmare in Thailand and happy to report on this 2nd year visit some familiar staff still there. Excellent choice & has my full recommendation.

Dinner - Lim's restaurant is a short 10 min ride away and one of the best restaurants in Patong and fitting to the BYD style.

Massage - Exiting the lobby, turn left and then right to reach the main road, directly across street in 2 story beige building Hanako of Tokyo massage and facial treatments. Reasonable prices and a very nice experience (a < 3 minute from hotel).

Scooter rental - looking out from lobby slightly left is a small laundry and they rent motor scooters in good repair for 300 baht per day and open until midnight for return. Bring your passport as security collateral. Very nice family so be nice too them!

Beach - Laem Singh beach (to the north) is a 30 minute scooter ride (at top of one of the hills, you'll see parking area to right, 20 baht to park scooter). Walk down to the beach. Fantastic restaurant (far left as looking out to sea) and owner spoke great English, best pad thai I've had and very reasonable prices. You can snorkel off the beach (left) or just enjoy swimming (far right).

“Simply fantastic”

I can see why this place has such a high rating and it absolutely delivered to my expectations. This is the only place i will stay in Patong in the future. Great location - 5 minutes walk from the beach, but very quiet, removed from the noise. Restaurant was great as well. Immaculately clean and up-to-date room and furnishings, great A/C, good water pressure, well stocked minibar and a coffee maker in the room.

“Nice rooms, good location and fantastic staff”

Large, nicly furnished apartment. Balcony is beautiful and the breakfast in the room really god. The pool is nice not located in the same building as our room but we had a great time there anyway, we ordered wine from the store and food from the restaurant and we enjoyed all at the pool.

“back again..great stay”

Went back in September, stay 3 nights.

Again same wonderful experience. Great location on the quiet end of Patong.
Rooms still big and accessible, with kitchen, sitting room and large bathroom with huge bathtub. Also a large balcony with seating for 4.
Nesspresso (like) machine in kitchen and fully stocked fridge at reasonable prices.
Breakfast wasn’t included but only costs 160baht, which is great value.
Free wifi throughout.
Wine Connection next door does great value wines for about 500baht, so grab a bottle before you head to your room.
There are about 4 foot massage places on the same road, which makes it so convenient. They are also extremely cheap at about 250 baht an hour for a foot massage.
Friendly service as always.

Can't go wrong.

“Great rooms. Quiet location in Patong.”

I normally stay in 5 star resorts with the family, but as it was a business trip I choose somewhere convenient for meetings. So I choose the top choice on tripadvisor.

ROOMS. The rooms are huge, with a living room, kitchen and balcony. It's actually an apartment as alot of reviewers have said. New and modern design with iphone docks and coffee machines (like nespresso but different brand). Free Wifi throughout that works! Everything you need in the room. Has safe as well for your valuables. But most of all the rooms were tastefully designed whilst functional and not at all pretentious or over the top. Everything fits together well. Wonder if they got a feng shui master to design the layout. It felt "right" - very good natural lighting inside the two rooms I stayed (yes I got upgraded to an even larger room on the second night) so you feel very comfortable throughout your stay inside the room.

LOCATION. Next to a Wine Connection so convenient if you like a glass/bottle of wine. Nice airy bright rooms which I really like, not dark and dingy. About 15min walk to Jungcelon, which isn't so bad. Massages along the road, at about 250 baht for oil/thai, which is great value. Quiet location on the end of Patong but not too far away. Taxi/tour operator next door.

FOOD
Only tried the breakfast at the restaurant which is situated on the ground floor. The breakfast is very good value at about 150 baht for 2 eggs plus the sides.

TIPS
Only thing they didn't provide is a toothbrush and shaver, so bring your own or get from supermart which is close by.

GOOD FOR
Couples/individuals looking for good value, modern, chic apartment style accommodation.

WILL I GO BACK?
Yes for sure, which is unusual as I usually like to try different hotels.

The location of this hotel is perfect, a five minute walk to the beach and a 10-15 minute walk to the center of the town. I stayed in the one bedroom with pool access. The room was very large and well appointed. The breakfast at the hotel was very good especially the home made yogurt. I ate one other meal there and it was very good too. Overall a very nice place to stay!

Though I really liked this hotel and enjoyed my stay I am not a big fan of Patong Beach.

“Large living space, high tech”

We stayed at BYD lofts in November 2011 with 2 units for 4 people. The units were spotless and large (well, at least by Hong Kong standards). The couch is large and comfortable enough to sleep a 6ft man - he said it was a good night of rest. One of the units only had the bathroom/shower in the main bedroom, which would be ok for couples, but in our case, made it a little awkward as the shower was completely see through. Also, although it took a little bit to figure out, just about everything in the unit could be operated through a remote control. This included but was not limited to the air conditioning, window shades, media, and various lighting. Windows to balcony opened ALL the way across - it was like we were sitting outside, but didnt leave the unit! It was a shame we couldn't spend more time there.

The walk to the nightlife and beach were not bad. It was not difficult to catch a tuk tuk or taxi. Staff were helpful and friendly - we were greeted with a refreshing fruit drink on the first night. Pool was super small but nice. It wasn't really clear whether we could order drinks up there though...would have been wonderful. Hotel bar was low key with great staff, mostly just guests of the hotel there for a quick drink. Breakfast at the restaurant was OK, didn't volunteer to eat there more than one morning.

Make sure you print out the hotel voucher. They need it for their records.

“Great apartment in Patong”

We booked four nights on hotels.com and got a fairly good price. We stayed in 100 sqm room from 25-29 February. That was the best memory of our vacation in Phuket.

The location of BYD is excellent. Walking distance from bars and beach without disturbing noise. The furniture is Swedish style, very modern and stylish. The living room is quite large as you can see in my photos. There is a large terrace with a dining table, wrap around balcony. Staff is really friendly, welcome drinks and cold towel at arrival were great.

We did not meet the WIFI problem as in some reviews. The Internet connection is totally free and works well. You can get a password from the front desk.

The swimming pool is a little smail, perhaps the only soft spot of BYD. But it is not a big problem, not so many ppl swim in hotel. smilie

We will definitely come back and recommend this hotels to anyone.

Thank you!
