|“Really lives up to its reputation”
Winner of a Tripadvisors 2013 travellers choice award so I though it has to be good and I was right. Everything I am about to say has been said many times before.
We got a free upgrade upon arrival and the room was superb. Two huge flatscreen TV's, surround sound, fully equipped kitchen with stove, over and refrigerator. The bed and the pillows just swallowed you up. The bathroom had a huge tub and a great power shower.
The bar and restaurant downstairs is excellent and the staff could not be more helpful. If you want to go anywhere in Patong, the hotels Mercedes will take you anywhere for 200bht. That is the same price as a Tuk Tuk!
The hotel is located on a quiet street yet all the madness of Patong is an easy walk or a quick ride in the Merc.
I will definitely be staying at BYD again and again.
