|“A chic, relaxing and modern appartment hotel.”
On arriving in Patong with no reservations we were completely at the hands of a local taxi driver who dropped us off in a street with a few hotels. Looking around us, we discovered a really modern hotel with a chic restaurant and bar below and decided that although it wasn't the cheapest it was definitely affordable for a few nights (about 3600 Baht per night). We were shown a stunnning appartment, with a balcony, direct access to the pool, king size bed and a gorgeous bathroom with walk-in shower. We really enjoyed staying here as the rooftop pool was fantastic and practically empty most of the time. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant attached to the hotel (Chez Pierre) owned by friendly Belgians and thought the food was very good. Try the Sate or the fish specials. There is also a coffee shop where you can have a good latte, muffin or bagel and free internet if you eat there. BYD Lofts was central, about a 10 minute walk from the Jung Ceylon shopping mall and the beach. I would recommend it if you love something quiet, chic and modern. We would definitely stay there again.
