|“Fantastic Modern Apartments near the heart of Patong”
I stayed at BYD for the Easter Weekend. It was a fantastic trip for me and my Girlfriend.
I have had ~8 trips to Patong in the last 2 years staying in 12 different hotels, and BYD is clearly in the top 2. The room at 100sqm is large and well decorated. I had a very comfortable sleep and there was no external noise at any time during our stay.
We got the mercades to pick us up from the airport for 1400 bhat it was well worth it and exactly what we needed after a long flight.
BYD lofts are in a back street at the northern end of Patong just of Rat-u-thit rd, about a 10 minute walk from Bangla (heart of the nightlife), there is no external view from the property due to its location it is rather boxed in around other apartments / hotels.
The staff were all friendly and pleasant to me and my girlfriend (a big difference than my previous stay in Patong at the Royal Paradise hotel) and I would happily stay there again.
BYD lofts is a little on the pricey side and you really are paying for the quality of the room.
