“Super cool. We loved it.”
Stayed at 6 hotels during our three week Thailand trip. BYD Lofts was amongst the most memorable hotels/rooms. Very very cool. Highly recommend it.
Fantastic location with very modern well designed rooms . About 4 mins walk to the beach and maybe 10 mins from bangla road depending on how many market stalls you stop in . Staff were extremely helpful with pretty decent English and the restaurant serves very good food at reasonable prices. Would highly recommend hotel just for the bed as it was a ridiculously comfortable Belgian mattress and multiple places to get a massage only meters away.
“BYD excellent venue and great place to stay.”
Exceeded my expectation from all perspectives. value, facilties, decor, comfort, spaceousness and shared facilities. The hotel presents as brand new with ultra modern design and European quality. the staff were always polite, with that typical gentle, helpful Thai demenour. Location is in a well maintained district, clean streets and quiet, only on block's walk to the beach. It's away from the central Pantog beach action centre, but easily accessible via a 15 minute walk to the shops or night walking street. Avoids the crowd and noisiness of the tourist district. Great family location.
We visited BYD Lofts for 2 nights before going to the Novotel Vintage Park for a work conference. The lofts were modern, clean and in a nice quiet street even though they were a short stroll to shopping and nightlife. Little extras like a coffee machine in the room and cocktails served to us in the pool just added to our experience. Breakfast served daily in the restaurant was exactly what we needed, eggs served to order and a nice coffee. We also had a meal in the restaurant at night and allthough not the cheapest I'm sure you could find in the area it was a relaxing environment and yum food. in saying that over the two days we had many cocktails, wine, dinner,cheese platters, minibar and our airport transfers and I think it only cost us $80 each. Love the BYD Lofts! Hate the Novotel! Mouldy shower, grubby bathroom, huge complex ( I got lost once and it literally was a hike to my room) and it looked over not so nice residences.Dont be ripped off by paying for a name.
“Best hotel I've ever stayed in”
From the moment we arrived (before we even set foot inside the hotel) until the second we left, the service at this hotel was impeccable and greater than we ever expected. The manager greeted us outside (we arrive a couple hours before the usual check-in time), carried our bags in, and brought us cold wet towels and two glasses of orange juice in champagne glasses with orchids. Check-in was fast, easy, and friendly! Our room was AMAZING. We got a one bedroom condo which was impeccably clean. This was the cleanest hotel we have EVER stayed in. Front desk was always very cheerful and helpful--they helped us with a minor snafu we encountered in taking an island tour, by being the liaison between us and our tour agent. It wasn't a huge deal, but we couldn't have gotten anything fixed without front desk's help. We saw the manager daily, who was always very friendly and full of useful tips and ideas for what to do and see. All in all, the hotel was extremely clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we will not even think of staying anywhere else when we return to Patong Beach! The hotel is located about 5-10 minutes walking from the beach. Very close! Bangla Road (where the nightlife is) is about a 10-15 minute walk. Also a comfortable walk. Everything you need is walking distance from BYD Lofts, and if you need to go anywhere further, like Kata Noi Beach, which is roughly 15 minutes away driving, there are tuk tuks and taxis in abundance. Don't forget to bargain!
“Not as pleasent on checkout”
Everything was great till checkout as I asked them to be 15 minute late after 12:00 an they refused and send their cleaning staff. I found that to be rude and spoiled the great time i had.
“Highly Recommended - BYD Lofts Boutique Hotel”
Great location, easy flat walking distance from Bangla Rd and the Patong beach without the ambeit street noise. Contemporary modern, open plan design with euro feel. Air conditioning quiet and effective. I would suggest you turn off the bedroom AC at night and only have the kitchen area on low as the slight breeze is sufficient. Most day to day requirement shops available in close proximity (water, snacks, hair dresser/cut, laundry, even a tailor, money exchange, etc). Breakfast and quality reasonable price and omlette is very tasty cooked to your liking. Kitchen can be seen and is clean. A waterfall and garden surrounding the eating area is relaxed, open and has an airy feel. Cocktails during happy hour are at a cheap price however prepared by proper bar attendants with the genuine/right ingrediants therefore quality is what you would expect. Staff helpful with good english. The scene would be mainly european tourists, some Japanese with a few ozzies like us staying. Definetely a refined euro casual vibe unlike many down the drag of Patong Beach that is rough and have no class. The only down is the safe that is mounted on the floor in the bedroom wardrobe means one has to get on the floor and store and take out your valuables however one should not focus on the 1 percenters in life. Would stay there again.
our stay started badly due to a very noisy occupant near us.wild parties that started about 2am and continued until we got up.complained to staff but it kept happening.we then asked to be moved and to their credit the staff moved us and we thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our stay.
“Very pleasant stay”
Reception and customer service was always with a smile. Very happy to organise tours/events. A porter took our suitcase upstairs for us. The apartment was very spacious. Decent kitchen if you want to do some of your own cooking. Comfy lounge. King bed was great, but I'm very fussy with pillows. Could do with a curtain or door to separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom. Shower was fantastic. Overall, can't really fault the place apart from some plumbing noise adjacent to the bathroom, and not a lot of choice in the buffet breakfast. Would stay there again and happy to recommend to others.
