|“Outstanding choice - service, style and location”
We stayed in BYD Lofts in Patong area of Phuket for 2 weeks from December 23rd till January, 6th 2012. The Tripadvisor gives it #1 position among hotels in Patong - and we totally agree! The hotel is charmingly stylish - with white colour dominant everywhere - floor, walls, furniture. White is beutifully mixed with green - you can see live plants of different sorts in your room, on your balcony, in the restaurant, in the lobby. Our room was not the largest in hotel but definitely the largest we've ever been to on holidays - living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and a large balcony.
The location is perfect - while it is very close to Patong main tourist attractions and just a few minutes walking from the beach, it is on the nice quiet street and not noisy at night. You start to really appreciate it, when you see that lots of Patong hotels are located along the busy roads, noisy until early hours of the morning.
The restaurant downstairs is yet another advantage of BYD. We wanted to try various kinds of food in different Patong cafes and restaurants - but, once we tried mussels served in a pan and seebass, we kept coming for dinner to BYD almost everyday.
Staff at the hotel was very friendly and polite, special thanks go to the administrator of the restaurant, who allowed us on a New Year's Eve choose our favourite dishes instead of New Year Menu. This is a kind of detail that makes you want come back here again.
There small minor flaws with electirity supply in the room one day or with the breakfast menu availability (we were told at the check-in, that we can come down for breakfast anytime we want, but when we came on the first days of New Year at 12.10 in the morning, the menu was already gone).
But no hotel in the world can avoid minor flaws, and overall our impression of BYD is excellent, and even better than we initially expected!
If we are back to Patong, there is no question, where to stay. BYD Lofts.
