My husband and I spent 5 nights at Baan Orapin in April, 2013. Based on TA reviews, we gave it a try. One of the things we definitely wanted was a quiet place to sleep. Baan Orapin is truly a small oasis in a busy city. I didn't look in any other rooms, but ours was a junior suite on the ground level in the back. The room had its own bath, a small drybar with frig area, and its own little covered patio. Everything was clean and in good condition, although the tv was an older model with dodgy reception.
The furnishings in our room were not luxurious, but very nice-some traditional style Thai pieces including a 4-post bed with mosquito net. Unlike some other commentors, we didn't have a problem with mosquitos in our room. Our room was located in the building in the back of the property, all the buildings being connected by pathways and lovely landscaping. The pool was located somewhat in the center of the central courtyard area, and adjacent to the main building where they also served breakfast. One disappointment was that the pool was closed for two days right after we arrived, while they were cleaning it. Those were two of the days that we had available to 'hang out by the pool.' It would have been nice to have some advanced warning that it would be closed.
The staff at Baan Orapin was very helpful in recommending several things, including a dentist. The one Opas recommended did an excellent job (Dental 4U). Also, Pepsi was extremely helpful with a number of our questions. It was really great to stay in a place where we felt comfortable and secure as well.
I would definitely recommend Baan Orapin as a quiet place to stay in Chiang Mai, the main con being that it's somewhat more expensive than many other places there. We would absolutely stay again.
