|“THE place to stay in Patong”
My wife and I have been to Phuket and Patong several times. We normally stay in a decent quality hotel. This time, we opted for an apartment at BYD Lofts. Put simply, THE best place we have stayed at on Phuket. Spacious rooms, quality fittings and furniture, very clean and very competitive prices in comparison to hotels. We stayed 8 nights. The food in the bistro was of such a high quality we ate there 6 nights which is a first for us as we like to try different places and a reason why we never book all inclusive holidays. The staff at BYD are superb and are all, without exception well trained and friendly contributing to a relaxed atmosphere. I can't commend the staff highly enough. The location of BYD is good also with a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to Bangla Road. Located on side street so quiet at night but shops, bars etc 100 yards away. The owners Alex and Hans who are also very pleasant, have created a superb facility at BYD. They clearly have an eye for detail and have formed a first class team of staff they can be proud of. Finally, I normally can't be bothered writing reviews, but BYD impressed me so much, I felt compelled to recommend BYD to anyone staying on Phuket.
