Where To Stay In Chiang Mai: Sakulchai Place

Where To Stay In Chiang Mai: Sakulchai Place


My friend and I are on a budget trip together and after a quick search for the best rated hotel within our budget, we chanced upon Sakulchai Place.

What I liked about Sakulchai Place:
  1. Location was really good – very close to a mall (which we never visited) and 7-Eleven (a real life-saver). It’s a good 2-minute walk from the main road so the hotel vicinity itself is quiet and free from the hustle and bustle of the busy street (hooray to a wonderful sleep).

  2. No language barrier – the staffs seem to understand and communicate fairly in English.

  3. Cheap rate – (although, I learned that most really nice small hotels in Chiang Mai offer 590 baht per night, so this was not really a hidden gem).


Other things that you need to know about Sakulchai Place:
  • Fresh towels are given daily, but if you happen to need more, it is NOT provided for free.
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste are available for a FEE.
  • No complimentary slippers.
  • FREE wi-fi (a real necessity these days)
  • Room smells of old wood upon entry. It will go away after some time when the air-conditioning unit is running.
  • SAKULCHAI PLACE is NOT wheelchair friendly. You have to ALWAYS use the stairs to access the elevator. (until now, I still don’t understand the reason behind this).


TIP: Nimman Road is one of the coolest and hippest places to visit. It would be great to book a small hotel near Nimman Road to save yourself from tuktuk/taxi rides :) (Sakulchai Place is located elsewhere)
