I spent 3 months researching this trip to ChiangMai and this hotel sounded amazing.It was to be our big splurge in Thailand, a country where there are accommodations with swimming pools for as little as $25. We got the Rabbit Room. The mattress is on the floor and there is no sitting space to speak of in the room. Bathroom and toilet are open to the room with no op to close a curtain.Air-conditioning was as noisy as tractor. Next morning we switched(free upgrade because we threatened to leave) to the Rooster Room.Well, the bed was over a meter high on a stone platform.had to crawl in and out backwards,cracked a rib and am still in a lot of pain.This room,too,had no real sitting are to speak of .Both rooms had no closet or shelf so in 5 days we never unpacked in tiny rooms.No towels hooks in bathroom and soap dispenser only in the shower. Aircon still noisy.TV at wrong angle to bed to watch.At this stage we were too tired to leave the hotel and stuck it . Breakfast was way too average for a hotel in this price range and deadly inefficient even though gracious . the pool was beautiful but not functional,in fact, it was closed for cleaning most of the time.It is set in an oriental rock garden and rocks to descend to the pool,downright dangerous.After I cracked my rib,couldn't,t go near it.
Mo is a great museum installation.By all means go look, but stay somewhere else.If you go look at the rooms, look at the details that would make you comfortable.
The public areas were sweet but also not comfortable.
