Baan Orapin is a delightful find which sits on the east side of the Ping River within easy walking distance of the riverside bars.
The tasteful, spacious and spotless rooms are furnished with firm yet highly romantic four-poster beds, cable tv, fridge and air-con throughout. The bathrooms are absolutely immaculate. All this set in a lovely miniature garden. Towards the rear of the compound is the family house -- a 90 year-old wooden house that is a fave with visiting architecture students. Very friendly, English speaking management. Highly recommended. Reservations recommended in high season. The new swimming pool provides a perfect way to relax if you're not wandering around the city.
