We chose this accomodation largely due to the ratings and reviews on here and also its ideal location 5 minutes from beach and 10 minutes from nightlife. We were not disappointed! We were upgraded on arrival to a large apartment in the main building. The apartment was spacious, modern and with every convenience provided. The bar and restaurant were excellent - we ate breakfast every morning there and were often provided with complimentary dim sum extras and we never missed the guest happy hour for cocktails before dinner. We had dinner there every night except one and enjoyed delicious food from the varied menu. The pool area is on the roof and although small, is beautifully designed and relaxing. The staff at BYD Lofts were brilliant - so helpful and friendly throughout our 8 night stay. In particular: I want to mention Ayub, Nate, James, Enrique, Justin and Jay who all made us feel so welcome. We didn't want to leave and will definitely return to BYD next time we visit Patong.

“Very pleasant stay in Patong Beach, Phuket”

BYD offers very modern, stylish, comfortable and huge apartments as well as a good restaurant and a small but nice pool on the roof. Despite having the beach and entertainment areas in walking distance the place is super quiet and therefor suits also for a business stay; WIFI is complimentary and fast. The staff is very friendly, efficient and I never heard a "No Sir, that's not possible...".I have been there for the second time and definitely will come back again.

This, as the vicar said to the choirboy, is going to be a long one.
First of all, why the hell are you thinking about staying in Patong at all! It truly is the epicenter of the fundament of Asia; I used to think that title was held by Pattaya, but Patong makes Pattaya look like Monaco in comparison. I went here in expectation of fun and frolics, but was badly misled. the joint is indescribably vile, squalid and ugly, as are most of the visitors. Restaurant menus and 7-11s have signs in Russian. This is never a good indicator of classiness.
HOWEVER….I lucked out by booking the BYD Lofts. Was expecting three guests, but one chickened-out, so had a two-bedroom apartment for two of us. It is, beyond a doubt, the nicest apartment I've ever stayed in. Private lift, furnished like a set fro Architectural Digest, big balcony, three huge-screen TVs, brilliant aircon…all beyond expectations or criticism. The staff are sweet and helpful, and the place is situated well away from the Seventh Level of Hell that is the centre, in a little enclave of its own. The restaurant and bar are nice, and there are pleasant no-happy-ending massage places ten paces away from the front door.
The Lofts wouldn't be out of place in California or Paris, but would cost ten times as much. I could cheerfully live in this apartment.
I cannot recommend it highly enough….should you be unfortunate enough to end up in Patong in the first place. The rooftop pool is small but more than adequate, and saves the squalor of the beach.
One caveat: don't hire a car at reception. Use Budget, and book online.

“Excellent Upscale Hotel”

This is the second time I have stayed at the BYD Lofts in Patong, Phuket. I am very impressed with the level of professionalism and the friendly staff.

The rooms are immaculate and the rooftop pool (while a little small) is set in a beautiful location.

While this hotel is a bit on the pricier end of the spectrum I feel it is worth it. I stayed in the penthouse room with private access to the pool and was more than happy with both the accomodations and the professional staff. If you are looking to splurge a little while in Patong -- this is the hotel for you!

Thanks again for a great stay!
