|“BYD Lofts- perfect place to stay while in Patong, Phuket”
This was our 3rd time visiting Phuket, and our first stay at the BYD lofts. As American's living in Hong Kong, Phuket is our go-to-place for a quick last minute getaway from the hustle & bustle of HK. Their loft apartments were spectacular and the perfect place to stay in Patong. The hotel's lofts was very spacious, clean and modern - with all the amenities i would need. Just remember to bring a brush/comb, toothpaste and a toothbrush They staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke good english.
They offered a delicious and hearty free breakfast buffet, and from what i ordered - all their food was quite tasty and of good quality, although a slight bit pricey when compared to the neighboring local restaurants - which is to be expected. It was nice to have a more upscale delicious meal at our hotel, when we got tired of slumming around the local spots. Good to note that they have a great wine shop in their lobby that serves up Italian worthy meats & cheese platters, at a very reasonable price ($10usd)....great place to meet up with friends or have that midnight snack with wine, before heading off to bed.
The location is in a quiet street, 2 blocks from the ocean, just as you enter Patong's beach area (North side). Its close enough to walk to all the partying and excitement of Patong's bar scene areas, but far enough to not run into those crowds if you don't wish to. It's about 15 streets away from Patong's red light district area. Its the perfect place for couples to reconnect, and for families to stay with their kids. I don't think i'll ever chose another hotel in Patong/Phuket again
