“Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We (2 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 11) spent a wonderful 5 nights at Baan Orapin in May. Loved this unassuming guest house, it truly was an oasis from the sometimes hectic world outside that gate. Breakfast was lovely and there is a variety of options within a short walk for lunch and dinner. Tuk Tuks were easy to come by for longer trips. Would definitely stay here again, room was great for a family. We usually stay in larger resort style properties but this was a great alternative for us during this trip.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with family

Baan Orapin is held in high regards with many a Trip Advisor traveller and certainly well deserved.

It really is an oasis in Chiang Mai, tucked away behind its gates hidden from the busy street but wander past the beautiful buildings of it's past hisory towards your rooms and you relax immediately. The pool is so inviting and sitting beside it enjoying breakfast makes it easy to be in holiday mode.

Our room was an upstairs Junior Suite in the rear wing and more than spacious! The balcony we used often to sit and sip on nice cool drinks with the outside fan moving the air around us so we can escape the heat amongst the palm trees for a little while.

Beautifully appointed bedroom and bathroom. Loved the Gold artwork and decorations and the the decorative coloured tiling in the bathroom gave a real wow factor.

The set breakfast allowed for a variety of choices, eggs, cereal or asian and included fresh juice, coffee and fruits and served beside the pool.

Great location where you can choose to walk across to the old market or down to the riverside restaurants but you will easily be able to grab a tuk tuk or songthaws right out front of the hotel.

Opas was a lovely host making the time to check that everything was okay and willing to tell us the history of his home.

Could have unpacked our packs and settled in for a long, long stay.... that is certainly the plan next time!

Room Tip: The rear wing was nice and quiet and the Junior Suite balcony was a treat.

The room had a dining room table, lounge with day bed, balcony, four poster bed and a bathroom with a shower. The breakfast was delicious and of a good quality. I especially enjoyed the French toast. If you are looking for a convenient location, comfortable and spacious accommodation, look no further.

From the moment we were picked up from the airport, I knew we were in good hands. Comprising of 5 ladies on a girlies weekend, we were shown to our very comfortable rooms amidst quiet oasis within the town. The B&B was just minutes from the old town of Chiangmai, and we even walked to the night bazaar. Opas was very helpful in a professional manner and we were treated so well by Pepsi. Opas helped organise a lovely cooking class with Pom, and arranged for a very comfortable minivan for a day trip with driver/guide. Absolutely no complaints at all. As mentioned, we would return!

This was the perfest place to stay. There was an amazng old temle, great boutique shops, and a wonderful restaraunt all within a couple a blocks. Super easy to get a tuk-tuk int town too. This was a honeymoon and the price just can't be beat. Thank you Bann Orapin for the trip of a lifetime.

Room Tip: room in the back is more quiet.

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.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear of the property are quieter. Also, rooms on the second floor probably have better...

We stayed 3 nights in July 2012. Loved it and would go back! The room was- a tiny villa! No kitchen but a nice sized bathroom, little sitting area with a tv and free wifi. Breakfast was delicious and I highly recommend trying the northern breakfast but you'll need to order it a day ahead. It was in a quiet location but lots to do in walking distance. My husband left some of his wallet contents in the room and they express shipped it to us- no problem. Talk about service! The lobby has flyers if you're looking for more to do. Stay here. You won't regret it!
