          Service Sadly Disappointing

          We stayed at Baan Orapin for three nights. The location of this hotel is both good and bad; good in that it is very close to riverside restaurants, but not at all walking distance to the old city centre - although tuk tuks are inexpensive and easy to find. The garden setting was lovely, the restaurant served a good breakfast, and the rooms were spacious and very clean. I was a bit surprised, however, to discover when we arrived that, although there is a large reception area, there is no manned reception desk at the guest house. We were greeted and showed our rooms, and could access the management by ringing a bell, but this service was only available during the day. This became a significant issue when the 5:45 a.m. taxi they had booked to get us to the airport for an early morning flight simply did not appear, and we were unable to find any hotel staff to assist us. The reception area was entirely locked and inaccessible - the service bell locked within - and there were no taxis passing by at that early hour as we stood on the street in the pouring rain. After three phone call attempts we were finally able to wake someone at the hotel to call another taxi. We left a half hour late, more than a little stressed about making our flight. Given that Baan Orapin is quite a pricey hotel - there are many charming but less expensive accommodations in Chiang Mai - this lack of attention to its guests basic needs seemed totally unacceptable. Certainly these situations are expected to arise, so it is difficult to comprehend how a hotel or guest house can be so unaccountable, unavailable, and uncaring to its guests needs. If I had not had my cell phone we would have missed our international flight. We would not stay at this hotel again.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Baan Orapin Bed and Breakfast Chiang Mai

          Fantasic thai style city retreat

          from

          we stayed at the baan orapin in jan for 10 days, and could have stayed for much longer. The accomodation was great as was the location, walking distance to everything! The family that run the baan are also fantastic , very freindly and helpful with everything we could have asked for. English speaking too! Breakfast is included and was wonderful every morning, although I ate more than i normally do!

          there are new villas, which look lovely, we stayed in the older ones and they were fine but next time we would request new if possible.

          Staying on the river is good as there are lots of restaurants for dinner, and its just a short stroll across a walkbridge into town and the night market where we did most of our shopping. If not interesed in walking there is plently of transport eg taxi , tuk tuk, bus.

          Do yourself a favour and experience true thai style on your holiday to chiang mai.

          Nice place but noisy

          from

          We found our room at Baan Orapin to be absolutely lovely. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. Our only problem was that there was quite a bit of noise from the street. I would recommend staying here, but be sure to request a room in the newer building behind the main house and away from the road.

          Just a great place to stay in Chiang Mai

          from

          We have just returned from our trip to Thailand where we spent the first 5 nights at the Baan Orapin in Chiang Mai. This was such a fantastic place to start our holiday. The Baan Orapin was an easy 140 Baht taxi ride from the airport and when we arrived we were greeted by our hosts Opus and Anuchana who quickly showed us to our accomodation in the new we unit at the rear of the complex. The whole complex has such a wonderful relaxed atmosphere, a real Thai feel about it. We had a suite with a living area with couch, bedroom with a great four poster bed with Mosquito nets and bathroom with walk in shower, all very tatsefully decorated in teak. Both the living area and bedroom had remote control airconditioning as well as a ceiling fan, even the balcony had a ceiling fan. I really could not recommend the Baan Orapin more highly. The grounds are lovely with mature tropical foliage, little waterfalls and streams running throughout the property. They serve a breakfast every morning and you have 4 set menus to choose from. The food was acceptable, nothing fancy. the staff were wonderful and very helpful, special mention to Pepsi our gentle waiter. It is an easy walk to the main riverside restaurants...The Good View, Riverside and the Gallery, all great restaurants which served superb Thai cuisine at very very reasonable prices. We even took a dinner cruise boat from the Riverside Restaurant.

          The footbridge that crosses the river is only minutes away, and exits at main local market...lots of food, fruits and local wares. It is a short 15 minute walk to the night market and every night we walked there and after hours of shopping, bags of goodies...we had a great 30 minute foot & leg massage for 60 baht...and took a tuk tuk back to the Baan Orapin.

          overall...the Baan Orapin and Chiang Mai was everything that we expected and much more. Thank you Opus and Anuchana for making our first visit to Chiang Mai such a wonderful experience

          A haven of peace and style!

          from

          Baan Orapin is an absolute hidden treasure! Located in a quiet leafy riverside neighbourhood, away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the touristy parts of Chiang Mai, and yet a stone's throw from the centre, it is a haven of peace and tranquility. We stayed in a deluxe room behind the main house in a new (traditional style) building which was just completed in March 2006. The rooms are absolutely impeccable: spacious and comfortable, with a wonderful blend of tradition and luxury, decorated with great style and individuality, using local wood furniture, textiles and decoration, with their own balconies/terraces where you can sit and relax, admiring the garden and orchids. There's also a very friendly, welcoming atmosphere as Baan Orapin is a family-run guesthouse owned by the same family for generations. The owners, Opas and Air are incredibly friendly and helpful. All in all, a fantastic place!

          Great Get-Away

          from

          Stayed at this B & B for four nights. We had our own little unit that was large and charming at the same time. My husband loved the netting over the beds. A/C was great and so was location. You could walk to the night market in 10 minutes and three of the best evening eating places were 5 minutes from your door. We had lunch three days across the street and spent about $10 total for appetizers, main meal and 2 large beers and the food was excellent. The staff at the Orapin was most helpful, lined up golf for my husband and some trekking trips for the rest of us. We left early the last day and they made sure I had my coffee before I headed to the airport even though it was earlier than the scheduled breakfast. My only complaint and it is a small one, was no hair dryer except one for all the rooms, my friend and I had to share one with our husbands running between buildings. i saw them for $1.50 in the market and wished I had bought one and left it there for the next person. Great little place with lots of charm.

          Treated very well

          from

          This is a good choice in Chiang Mai, it was clean, fairly priced, good location and helpful people. We spend 4 nights here and the only downside was the neighbors barking dog a couple of mornings, we were in a back villa so we were next to the fence (and the dogs). The owner took care of our tour needs, good restaurants were within walking distance, night and Sunday market were 10 minute walk or $1.00 Tok Tok ride.

          We would go back.

          What a place!!!

          from

          This was by far and away the best place we stayed at during our trip around Thailand, and when I mention we stayed in the Oriental in Bangkok, you'll realsie how much we liked this place. Great credit must go to Opas and his staff, who were extremely helpful. The rooms themselves were very tastefully decorated, with hard wood flooring and very clean. The guesthose is located at the Riverside area, close to a number of bars and restaurants. It takes approximately 15 minutes to walk to the centre of town, but it was easy to catch a Tuk Tuk from the area. We would definatly stay here again.

          Beautiful Baan Orapin!

          from

          My husband and I stayed for almost a week in mid-November. It was like a secret oasis for us. We had a beautiful one-bedroom teak apartment. The furnishings were so beautiful. The apartment and grounds were so peaceful. It was located on the river, and was convenient to everything including markets and restaurants. Opas and Pepsi were the best hosts. They helped us with everything. All the different breakfasts that we had were delicious. We were very sad to leave and cannot wait to return to Baan Orapin on our next visit!

          Wonderful place to stay in Chiang Mai

          from

          I spent 10 wonderful days at Baan Orapin and loved every second of it. The rooms are lovely and the owners and staff could not be nicer or more helpful. Breakfast is delicious and varied. I have been to Chiang Mai many times and have stayed in many different hotels including the Four Seasons. I've never found a Chiang Mai hotel I wanted to return to until now. The location is excellent but most of all it is the wonderful ambience that makes it so special. The owners and staff go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful time. I highly recommend Baan Orapin.

          Baan Orapin, Lovely Guest House in Chiang Mai

          from

          We stayed at Baan Orapin for six nights in January 2006. We stayed three nights in a suite and three in a double. They have recently renovated (December 2005), and the rooms are beautifully furnished with hardwood floors, gorgeous four poster beds and lovely local artisan work throughout. The owners are very polite and helpful and speak excellent English. There is a wide choice for breakfast, ALL of which is delicious. The location was perfect for us, very close to night market and flower market but on the other side of the River Ping on a street with boutiques, art shops and a small spa. It is also close to several excellent riverside restaurants/pubs/etc so you won't have to wonder far for nightime entertainment.
