Baan Orapin Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 801 Chiang Mai B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2008

What a wonderful hidden gem in the middle of Chiang Mai!! We just returned from our stay in Thailand and absolutely loved our stay at Baan Orapin. Ann, Opas, and Pepsi were extremely friendly and helpful. Every excursion or reservation was booked or confirmed by the staff. They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. We can't say enough about the accommodations - the comfortable bed, the immaculate landscaping, refreshing pool, delightful breakfasts, memorable rooms, and free internet. We highly recommend staying here during your visit to Chiang Mai.

My husband and I loved every moment of our stay at Baan Orapin. We had a really gorgeous junior suite in the rear wing, with a lovely bathroom. Breakfasts were great, and the sparkling pool was very welcome at the end of each day's exploring. Service was also unobtrusive but top quality.

Baan Orpin was, as everyone else has written was lovely. Our room was delightful, spotless and very spacious.

the staff, esp. the young man who server breakfast, sorry don't remmber his name. were lovely. The resort is small and personal, with lovely gardens and a sense of privacy.

we had our 2 year old with us and were provided with an extra bed, which was set up in the living area. the set up, along with the 4 poster bed with drapes provided us parents with some much need pricey and it was like our son had his own room.

we loved the hotel so much we extended our stay, which the own happily accommodated us.

i would recommend this hotel to my friends and family , safe in the knowledge they would have a great time.
Finally, the location was great for us and the shopping in the immediate area fab.

The owners inherited this beautiful property and to ensure its ongoing preservation, opened it to discerning travelers. My teak room was very spacious and comfortable, with lounge, fridge, table, desk, 2 4 poster beds and views of the tropical grounds below. The breakfast was a treat, and after a long day of walking busy streets, it was pleasant to relax poolside. Sited by the river, and close by the better restaurants and galleries, the Baan Orapin proved to be my journey's highlight. The owner is utterly charming. Making a personal connection is something you don't experience from a hotel.

This is the fourth year running that we have stayed at Baan Orapin with owners Opas and Anuchana. We have watched it grow, year by year, always just a little concerned that perhaps it might be getting just a bit too big and just a little too impersonal - But our worries were unfounded - They have managed to do the trick of growing but still remaining the same incredibly friendly, helpful and intimate place to stay. This year there's a new small swimming pool that is an absolute delight - we worried a bit that it might mean hordes of kids all day, but we needn't have - all to ourselves most afternoons and a great place to hide from the heat of the day. Opas arranged cars for us, including pick up from the airport when we arrived from Myanmar, and Pepsi and the establishment staff - who have been there since day one - are still there, quietly doing anything that's needed or asked for - including serving up the delicious choice of fresh cooked breakfast - none of your serve yourself lukewarm buffet stuff here! They have built a new building at the front of the premises that is let to Soep Moi Arts - a delightful shop - which also serves to effectively deal with the previous problem of road noise in the accommodation at the front. Only the odd noisy dog left to disturb the peace and tranquillity!

We booked this hotel on the strength of other reviews and we weren't disappointed! Accommodation used traditional furniture and had a real Thai traditional feel, very different to the other hotels we had stayed at in Thailand. My friend and I were two single travellers and feel the Baan Orapin was set up for us as well as any other kind of traveller. Owners were always available to help whether it was advice on tours or local tailors. It was ideally located on the other side of the river where there was some fantasic restaurants and bars with live bands on the walk to the bridge Loved Chiang Mai and the Baan Orapin, and look forward to visiting them both again

This is a fantastic B&B, and is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Although the street on which it is located is somewhat busy (it's not a main road or anything, but it does get some traffic) the Baan Orapin itself is an oasis of peace. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. We had a junior suite in the back area, and it was wonderful. The included breakfast is extremely good, and the open air breakfast area is a wonderful place to eat a relaxing breakfast.

The location is good. The pedestrian bridge over the Ping River is very close, and once you cross the bridge you are at a lively market. The Night Bazaar is about a 15 minute walk away, and you can take a tuk tuk cheaply if you don't want to walk it. The walk to the old city (i.e. inside the moat) is a little longer, but is an easy walk, and there is some really good shopping along the way.

There are several large, failry famous restaurants nearby, including The Riverside, The Good View, and the Brasserie. These restaurants are large, and the service can sometimes leave something to be desired, in my opinion, but the food is good. The locations,sitting along the river, cannot be beat.

in short, if you are staying in Chiang Mai (and you should be) Baan Orapin cannot be beat. Book it now, you won't regret it.
