|“Love this place!”
Ok, for some strange reason I am usually suspicious of the number 1 rated hotels on trip advisor. I guess i assume a conspiracy has taken place and somehow they have "bought" ; their way to the top.
During a recent business trip to Bangkok I found myself with a free weekend and Having never been to Phuket I decided at the last minute to head down there for the weekend. I knew nothing of Phuket but had heard of patong beach so used trip advisor to find accommodation in that area.
BYD Lofts kept coming as number 1 and the prices were very reasonable. As my visit was only for 2 nights I decided why not and booked a 1 bedroom king apartment.
I have to say from the minute I arrived by taxi I was treated like royalty, even by name immediately. The room was exceptional - looked brand new - with everything I could possibly hope for.
The espresso machine and free capsules were a bonus and the fridge was stocked with everything. The location was excellent, a quiet street close to the beach with only a 5 minute walk to Bangla st.
I plan to return to patong beach in the future with my family and wont bother looking anywhere else, BYD is fantastic!!!!
