“Visual freshness with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Some travellers stay at brand name or chain hotels wherever they go, They don't know what they are missing. "Mo Rooms" offers an unique experience because the rooms have odd-sized beds, uneven floors & surfaces, quirky designs, playful kinds of spaces. Everyone who stayed here raved about the place. When there are only 12 rooms here that reflect the Chinese zodiac calendar, you may never be satisfied with just one room: say you're in the Tiger room, you would wish you were in the Dragon room or Rat room or Horse room, etc. But just follow the fate of the Chinese calendar and be content with what room you get because each has its own charm.

But there's more to the design, the location, the visual freshness of Mo Rooms. The staff are extremely friendly and polite: they greet you with a big smile early in the morning when you go down for breakfast. If you want to break away from the conventional American scrambled egg, red-dyed sausage and toast for breakfast (with artificial jam that is sweet but tasteless), try the chicken congee: it's more natural food, and Asians like to eat congee in the morning because the warm liquids are like comfort food.

Once again, former guests rave about the design, but what is a nice hotel without good service ? Fortunately Mo Rooms staff are great: the general manager is very professional and helpful, and the service staff give the best of Thai hospitality.

Designed by a group of artists, tghe hotel is like a living sculpture with only 12 themed rooms based on the chinese calendar...it was just the best bed i have ever slept in.
All the rooms are individual, very arty.
nice little balcony in the cafe so you can overlook the street.....
the whole place is aesthetically interesting, as the designers have used interesting materials, and layouts throughout.
Good food,
good coffe
lovely staff.....

Room Tip: The only thing you can do is view all the rooms and decide as they are all quite amazing and very di...

Wonderful hotel, very well located. Make sure you book online, as they charge a great deal more if you just show up.

We stay in Tigher room for 2 nights, the bed is big and comfortable. Breakfast taste great, staff friendly. Wish the room space a little bit bigger, but I think it's sufficient if you just stay in the room for sleep.

My mum and I stumbled upon this unique hotel while walking around. We were staying somewhere else but we checked out early to stay in MO rooms. It'just beautiful. The staff is really friendly and helpful and the rooms are so different and amazing but the prices are affordable. Breakfast and drinks are good as well. If you're going to Chiang Mai I would recommed staying there.

Mo rooms is placed bang in the centre of chaing mai! Location is really good, plenty of bars and resturants all walking distance, close to the trip booking places so you can book and be picked up right at. Your place being so well placed. It's also near all the night markets and thai shows, which we enjoyed very much. The b n b is so different, funky clean spacious and coasy. Free wi fi air con a flat screen tv makes it up there with some trendy hotels we stayed in in Bangkok. For the price it's very good value for money and one of the best Places we stayed at in thailand.

Rooms clean with quirky decor and design.
