Opened in 2011 on a bustling stretch of eastern Soi Rambutri, Sakul's characterless exterior conceals charming rooms with lots of thoughtful touches.
The owner's background in the fabric trade shows in the high-quality linens and silk butterfly pillows on semi-firm beds. While not quite as large as we'd hope for the prices, the rooms are very inviting thanks to parquet wood floors, soft lighting, tasteful floral wallpaper, large windows that let in lots of natural light, clean bathrooms with partitioned showers and extras like air-con, mini-fridge, tea kettle and wall-mounted LCD TV. Superiors have small balconies with tables and potted plants. Ask for a room in the back to avoid the nighttime party noise. A lift takes you upstairs from the tiny reception area, and a rooftop garden is a fine place to relax. We found staff to be very friendly and welcoming. While you miss out on the pool offered by other hotels with similar rates, Sakul offers more attention to detail.
