BYD Lofts is a great little hotel/serviced apartment on the outskirts of Patong Beach. Rooms are quite large, spacious and modernly furnished. Rooms have flat panel TV's with blu-ray player and surround sound. Hotel restaurant is very clean with good food - never had a problem with their food in all the times I have stayed at BYD.
The staff provide excellent service and are all very friendly
The beach is around 200 meters away, an easy 5 minute walk. There are also a few restaurants and cafes close by. Bangla Rd and Jungceylon Shopping Mall are a walkable 20 minutes away but with the humid weather you will probably prefer to take a taxi/tuk-tuk.
Byd has a small rooftop swimming pool but does not have a spa or fitness center.
Having stayed at BYD 5 times over the past 2 years, I highly recommend this hotel.
