We spent a week at the Baan Orapin in April and didn't want to leave. The rooms were spectacular and luxurious yet were quiet and quaint at the same time. The main part of the hotel is housed in a 100 year old home and oozes history. Once we arrived, Pepsi made us feel right at home and soon after that Opas (the owner) found us and introduced himself. He was nothing but helpful during our stay; eager to help us with other travel arrangements, answer questions and teach us some Thai. The location is great, right off the footbridge leading into the old city and there are a number of good restaurants down the road. Every little detail was considered in order to better improve our stay, right down to the lit mosquito coils left on the balcony. We wouldn't hesistate to stay there again. Loved it!
