|Just returned from 3 weeks in Patong, our 15th trip there. We stayed in a Grand Deluxe apartment (100sqm) at BYD Lofts.
The location is excellent being close to everything but not on a main road. The apt was a pleasure to come home to each day and the staff were excellent. Fabulous large balcony, and even a comfy foam matress topper upon request! The large double shower was heaven compared to some we have had in the past. We normally visit in the low season but this year had to go in March so the rates were a bit higher than we normally pay but it was certainly worth the extra money for the comfort we experienced. We don't usually eat at hotel restaurants but this one was really reasonably priced, great little bar and even a wine shop with wholesale prices (which we frequenly used). Would like to thank Hans, who was always around and happy to chat with the guests, Alex & the lovely staff. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Well Done!!
Only downside was the free wi-fi was very unpredictable and a little inconvenient at times, talking to family back home (skype or FaceTime)was often impossible. Having said that, the one minus certainly did not detract from our overall satisfaction.
