Baan Orapin Heritage B&B

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Rooms

The rooms are dominated by dark wood varnished furniture, with pieces of local handwoven fabric, which Khun Opas can help guests source in the markets of Chiang Mai. They're a generous size, all with their own little outside seating area. The kingsize four-poster beds have mosquito netting; at night, a man comes round to light the mosquito coils, too.

The front wing has a more old-world feel to it, and is more tastefully put together, while the rear wing benefits from a tranquil garden setting.

Bathrooms are functional with shower cubicles. A range of toiletries is provided: that the soap is Imperial Leather speaks of the amiable, unfussy soul of the place. The simple minibar comes at the smallest markup in hotel history (4 baht more than the 7-11, as far as we could tell) and you get complimentary bottled water and an umbrella, should it rain.

Superior rooms have queensized, kingsized or twin beds (specify when booking), plus a little desk and rattan seating. Junior Suites are bigger and more inviting for longer stays, with a comfortable sofa and coffee/tea-making facilities.

The Baan Orapin and One-Bedroom Suites have an inviting teak four-poster bed and generous sitting area decorated with exclusive Sop Moei Arts items. Some also come with a bathtub.

Save to favouritesPrintMailBaan Orapin Heritage B&BA characterful, well-kept guesthouse – actually a collection of bungalows around a restful, landscaped tropical garden – Baan Orapin takes its name from the 90-year-old teakwood family home at its centre. The owners still live here, without the benefit of air conditioning, but have striven to offer their guests comfort at a reasonable price. All the amenities are in place, floors are teak or hardwood, furniture is handcrafted, and if the surfaces aren’t always finished to the highest of standards, this is compensated doubly by the attentive service and care which manager Khun Opas takes to make you feel welcome. You can ask him anything, and he will provide the answer, map at the ready. The location is another draw, a historic street along the sleepy Ping River that has been carefully restored not by edict, but by the affection of the residents. Lovely arts and craft shops abound, and you're within easy striking distance of the Night Bazaar, Wat Ket temple, riverside bars and cruises. The city centre is a short tuk-tuk ride away; the old building at the top of the road is probably the city’s most interesting student-y art showcase. And the hotel's peaceful garden will be welcome respite after a hill-tribe trek.
