|“Beautiful apartments in Patong”
Just returned from a week in Patong. Was greeted at the airport bupy a pleasant driver and given a free upgrade in a Mercedes CLK for the trip back to Patong.
Let me get one thing clear - I dont think i ever would return to Patong simply due to the tackiness of all the main streets and being acosted for crappy suits, dvds or tuk tuks, along with drunk aussies and russians everywhere. The main beach was also filthy littered with bottles, plastic bags and yes even condoms. However, BYD lofts was a sanctuary from all the chaos that is Patong and I woukd return to the hotel without a doubt. It was off the main strip about a 10 min walk to the main nightclub area and less than 5min walk to the beach. Never swam at the beach once but walkimg along it was a preferable route to walk into town to avoid the hassling along the way in the streets.
The apartments were beautiful - spacious, modern and clean - A real home away from home in a quiet street away from the trash of patong. The rooftop pool was lovely and had sun all morning til about 2.30pm. Spent a lot of time here and quite often had it to ourselves. The staff at the restaurant and reception were all friendly and happy to assist with any request/query.
