Had another lovely stay at the MO BKK. Rooms well furnished. Breakfast on the terrace very nice. Pool service attentive. Plenty of restaurant choices. Housekeeping top notch. Le Normandie restaurant surely the best in BKK. My main reason for choosing this hotel time and time again is the wonderful atmosphere. No hotel in bangkok has quite the buzz the MO has in its lobby and bar. The people watching is great fun!
The only problem I have with the hotel is the front desk staff. They are very unfriendly and unhelpful compared to any other MO hotel I have been in. I find this strange as Thailand is renowned for its hospitality... I have noticed this attitude on all 5 of my visits. Maybe it is because I am younger, I just don't know...
I hope the next time I go it won't put me off returning for good...
