Beautiful, very quiet and lush green compound just outside the bustling heart of Chiang Mai. We stayed in one of the deluxe junior suites: a spacious apartment tucked away in the most quiet part of the compound, with bathtub and huge four poster bed. Although December is high season in Thailand and Baan Orapin is extremely popular on TripAdvisor, you would think you're the only guests. Staff is helpful and always smiling, with attention to detail, like the incense on our porch every night. Breakfast is ok with good coffee. The city centre is too far to walk, but as others already stated, there's always an idle tuktuk down the street to get you there. Most of the evenings though we had diner at the riverfront just across the street; there are some lively bars packed with locals, and good restaurants as well.
