This is a lovely place, it has a wall surrounding the grounds that form a barrier to the outside world. The ground are beautiful, we spent many hours in the pool.
The immediate area surrounding the Baan Orapin is also a bit different, more quality craft and artifacts. I would recommend this place highly.

Baan Orapin is a charming property that has an old plantation feel to it. The buildings are nicely laid out around an old main house, and the landscaping is well done. You really do walk through the front entrance and feel like you are in another world. We stayed in a junior suite in the back of the property and would absolutely do so again. The room was lovely: nice bed and bathroom, comfortable sofa and chairs for relaxing. I definitely recommend Baan Orapin for its overall set-up and ambiance. The location was also a big plus for us; we did walk to the walled city center (despite the heat) several times and in the evening found Baan Orapin perfectly situated to hit our favorite riverfront restaurants. Baan Orapin is a real charmer, and we're so glad we stayed there during our visit to Chiang Mai. We'll return eventually and will come back to this lovely place!

"Pepsi" seems to be the heart and soul of Baan Orapin - he's a friendly fellow who will do whatever he can to make your stay comfortable. That said, he seems so busy and overworked - frankly it is a miracle he keeps a smile on his face! Get him some backup, ASAP! I'd also say that this place is good if you are an independent traveler and don't need a lot of hands on guidance ... the only "concierge" service was the internet station in the main building. Our bed was F-I-R-M. You might like that; others might not.

On tips, I think the back of the grounds are probably quieter, but as another reviewer mentioned I wouldn't necessarily pass up a space here in the front! The breakfast menu has a "special section" requiring a full day notice ... the offerings there are probably worth the extra effort! It felt like there was a bit of construction going on around the property so you might check on that; it probably wouldn't bother you if you are out in town during the day. A quiet day poolside could be slightly more challenging.

I'm mostly putting the last two paragraphs in the interest of full transparency. My husband and I would 100% recommend Baan Orapin and intend to do so to our friends!

No point repeating what has already been said other than to say, I agree!

For the money this palce is awesome, we felt we were in our own home with a few friends over rather than a hotel or guest house such was the peace and tranquility here. Sure if you want to snap your fingers and have the Pina Coladas arrive instantly this isn't for you, but if you want a little slice of heaven almost all to yourself then you'd have to go some to better this place.

Staff just kind of appear when required, then disappear when not.

Breakfast is a little odd, but I didnt go hungry....hope you like eggs.

Position is nice, too far to walk to the city (in my opinion) in that heat, but for the price of a small beer you'll get a tuktuk to wherever you want to go, so why walk anyhoow???

Excellent little shops, cafes, restaurants, and the like directly outside and if you turn right out of the property instead of left towards the old city, up to the crossroads and right again there's a whole new other part of Chiang Mai without another tourist in sight.
We walked and ate and walked and drank and ate and walked until our feet fell off.
Jump in songtheow and back home. Fantastic.

Directly opposite Baan Orapin there's a little noodle shop, looks like a little old garage, but, WOW!

Oh and theres a little laundry about fifty yards up on the right hand side as you turn right out of the hotel, worth using just for the hell of meeting the little Thai Mama running the place, awesome human being!

Criticisms???.........Hmmmn.... None.

I love CM and Baan Orapin.

Room Tip: It does (seem) to get a little noisy at the front but I wouldnt turn this place down if that was the only rooms they had left. I'm going to book a balcony room next time.

The Baan Orapin is the definition of 'hidden gem' from the oasis style hideaway you enter in to after a long sweaty day around Chiang Mai to the wonderful staff that make breakfast so enjoyable.

We booked a day before and even though arrived late there were people waiting to take us to our room an ensure we had enough information. As the reviews before us state, the place is beautiful, very 'thai' and decorated very well. We had to move rooms halfway through our stay ( as we booked last minute) but it was completely painless and both rooms were lovely.

The pool is a great treat in the late afternoon to cool off, an I kept very clean.

There is a busy road outside, but there is a small pavement on the opposite side, and it's 5 minute from some great restaurants on the river (good view, the riverside, the gallery)

We walked in to the night market an it took about 10-15 mins. The Tuk-Tuk back was 50 Bhat ( they start off at 100 but will drop to 50 quickly)

Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so pleasant!

My husband and I are very used to staying in expensive botique hotels across the world. We were a little dubious when we saw the very affordable pricing of this B&B but we decided to listen to the reviews and stay here. We were thrilled with the authentic design and feel of a traditional Thai accommodation, safe and closed off location, incredible and attentive service, and very clean and beautifully designed rooms. We stayed with our 8 year old and 6 year old kids and it was a great location to bring children to since we stayed in their largest family suite that had 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. We highly suggest this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: towards the back and away from the busy street
