Very nicely decorated rooms, a little bit of a hiccup at the time of check in. But everything was quickly sorted. Great location, within walking distance to the beach and a shopping mall. The usual massage parlors, thai restaurants and bars along the road. There seems to be a little lack of staff but not really a big deal.

This apartment hotel is quite new - probably less than 12 months old. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment for our family of four. This has been our fourth visit to Phuket although we last visited 4 years ago - in the intervening years Phuket has become much cleaner and more prosperous and consequently more expensive. We stayed in Phuket for 2 weeks including one week at BYD Lofts and one week in an excellent (but much busier) hotel at the other end of Patong Beach.

We found a number of pros and cons with this hotel.

Pros:
1. The apartment was very spacious and had two king sized beds and an excellent outdoor entertaining area. You are unlikely to get anything bigger. Other members of our family rented a larger one bedroom apartment, which was much smaller but still spacious.
2. The pool was small but very nice and not very busy - we had it to ourselves every time we went up to the roof to use it.
3. The service and the attention of the people at the front desk and in the restaurant was superb.
4. The food in the restaurant was excellent (some of the best we tasted in Thailand) and reasonably priced.
5. The pre-paid breakfasts (set menu) was large and very tasty. It included hot eggs, breads, fruits, yoghurt, tea/coffee, juices, and continential meats/cheese selections.
6. They did a reasonable service of the rooms every day.
7. The hotel is located in a quiet side street.
8. The apartment had 2 large screen TV's (although we only ever used one), a sound system, coffee maker, and a reasonably good sized fridge and all the other necessary stuff to allow for you to be self contained.
9. The room service was the same price as the restaurant and there was no additional charge for delivering and collecting the plates.
10. The airconditioning in the rooms was excellent.
11. The hotel and the restaurant never felt busy.

Cons:
1. The beds were rock hard.
2. The electrics in the hotel are not great. The lights in our room would often come on and off when the people upstairs turned their lights on and off. Also, the elaborate lighting controls were very difficult to use.
3. The hotel was unable to give us a key card for our room for the first 4 days as their one and only card writing machine was broken. Hence, every time we wanted to get into the room we had to be escorted up by the front desk people. I imagine this is not something that would happen very often.
4. They did not replace the toiletries very often.
5. The hotel is located at the northern end of Patong Beach a little distance away from the more active part of Patong where the shopping is. This of course could also be considered a 'pro'. In any case, you can always get a Tuk Tuk for about 200 Baht to any part of Patong.
6. There was a bit of noise from the construction work next door but nothing too loud as the rooms have good noise protection.
7. There was no fitness centre or spa although there was a massage centre across the street that was fine.
8. Due to the construction work in the street the power was turned off for most of one day. This mant everyone had to use the stairs. If you were on the top (4th) floor it would have been quite a walk. I am not sure if this power issue is a regular thing or not.
9. You can find good cheaper options in Phuket - nonetheless it was not overly expensive.

We liked this hotel and would consider returning (if we decided we needed the extra space) if we were to holiday in Phuket in the future.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom rooms on the first floor corner in the main building are the ones to aim for

we got a first floor studio.. in the annexe.. was neatly turned down.. there was just some sewage smell in the elevator area and around the room. It's secure access. I think the price was a little high.. Nap which is just down the street might have been a better bargain. It's located in a decent area. Not on the main road but just 1 street away from it, so no street noise. One thing that scared us a little bit was the proximity of the balcony (which was huge) to the electric pole and wire junction. Don't use airport transportation from the hotel, its 800 Baht. You'll get guys around the area to go to the airport for 600 or less!

Dear Guest,

Thank You very much for taking the time to write a review for BYD Lofts Boutique Hotel & Serviced Apartments on Tripadvisor. I am sorry you felt the prices were too high but our prices reflect the standard of our rooms and all our rooms are finished to a very high European standard.
I do not think that you can compare BYD Lofts to Nap as this is a totally different market as our rooms are from 65sqm, 100sqm and 160sqm with fully equipped kitchen, living area and bedroom while Nap only offers rooms that are 28 sqm and 55sqm. We appreciate all your comments and it was a pleasure to accommodate you.

Best Regards,

Alex Bressers

We stayed 12 days in july and this is a perfect place. In low season it is affordable, the lofts are very clean and the staff are always friendly and ready to help. The lofts are in a quiet area yet close to the beach , bars and shopping. The bistro on the first floor is honestly priced and the quality of the food is great.

A very small hotel, the service was very personal and all the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our room was beautiful, I wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Get a pool access room if you can get it, the pool area is small but nice and it's handy to have...
