Artists APPLIED the identity of Birth Animal, influencing the entire BUILDING process from the initial concept TO the unique style of furniture and interior to fit with each zodiac. THE orientation and design of doors, windows, beds and toilets AS WELL AS the interpretation of the FIVE body elements (Fire, Wind, Water, Earth and Metal) ARE ALL CONSTRUCTED to provide balance for MO guests.mo design team seeks new possibilities of spatial organization via the blending of past and present ideologies into a livable sculpture.

I stayed in 3 different rooms in the hotel as each one is like a work of art and loved them all. Its fun to just walk around the hotel and look around at all the interesting art and furniture. The location is great and I enjoyed several meals and cocktails in the cafe.

Thought it might be easier to sum up our stay with a pro/con list -- Pros: - Location!! Honestly, the one thing that might bring me back to Mo Rooms (if all the nearby hotels are booked up) is the location. It is right near Tha Pae Gate which was amazing especially for the NYE lantern festival and there are so many shops/marketplaces/massage places/food right near by, we barely took a cab anywhere and had so much to do every day and night. - The staff - almost everyone we spoke to were so friendly and helpful (I say almost, because one staff member was not super friendly when I had an issue with the Wifi). Cons: - The rooms. I guess I should have realized based on other reviews, but I honestly didn't have too many choices for the time of year we went. But I wasn't a fan of the rooms. For one night we were in the Monkey room, which had a cool design but the pros end there. I hated the mattress, the black walls and floors (felt unclean), the shower and toilet that had no curtain or anything separating it from the rest of the room. Then we were moved to the Pig room which was MUCH better. The toilet at least had a door but the bed was not comfortable. If we had been stuck in the Monkey room I may have given this place one star, but the Pig room was much more manageable and was fine for the rest of our stay. -WiFi - NO WORKING WIFI, we maybe had Wifi for half a day (out of the five days we stayed) which was very frustrating. If a hotel is going to advertise working wifi, there should be working wifi. I understand things happen sometimes but on the second day of our stay the wifi turned off, we called the front desk and a lady came to help us. She was not super friendly (but not rude either) and said that they need to have someone come and fix it and that it might take a couple hours, I said I understood and we went out for the day (this was around 12 pm). At around 9 pm we returned to the hotel and of course, the wifi isn't working still. I went down to the front desk and the staff member there called the same lady who (in a slightly rude voice) said "It won't get fixed in the day, I told you that. It won't be fixed till tomorrow!" I said I understood but that I was told it would be fixed in a couple of hours, I then asked her to confirm that it would be working by tomorrow and she said yes. There was no real apology or anything and she kinda made it sound like I was being unreasonable expecting the Wifi to work nine hours later (even though she said it would only take a few hours). It did work the next morning but then stopped at night and did not work for the rest of the trip. I gave up asking them about it because I knew I would get the same response. I understand that this is Thailand and there may be issues, but every other restaurant/massage place etc. had working wifi in that area, and this seems to be a reoccurring issue so they really need to get this fixed. -Shower pressure/temperature: The temp of the water was just warm enough to make it manageable but the water pressure sucked. Overall, as mentioned above, I would only stay here again (and specifically request the Pig room) if I had no other option in that area because the location/most of the staff were great. Otherwise, would probably pass.

There is literally nothing executive about the Ox Room we are currently staying in with two lore days to go until we can have some respite. If we don’t leave a night earlier than that just to sleep on an actual mattress. If you’re keen on sleeping on a concrete slab with no mattress, over a meter above the ground, no bed head to support your pillows and zero sensation of being suspended in the sky as the room seems to desperately (yet disappointingly) attempt to create the ambiance of then the Ox Box room as we have not so lovely named it, is for you. It looks nothing like the photos online, they make a point of taking a picture encompassing the bed only, cause that’s all their is in the room quite literally. Pay the most expensive room rate to end up in a shoe box. They make a point of promoting several rooms that are much more spacious and create a nice ambience, only to be placed into the concrete jungle of a room. Also, sh*ting where you sleep right by your partner seems to be the go here too. You’ll also be woken up with every single sound outside your door with the room featuring zero soundproofing, mosquitoes everywhere, a window to wake you as soon as any sun hits the city, no mirror besides the awkwardly placed one above the sink which for some reason is on the entirely different side of the room to the toilet, a back door that doesn’t shut properly oh, and wifi that is practically non existent and when you ask for it to be reconnected then you’re told to just use another floors wifi that also isn’t working. But we feel rather strongly that: 1. We don’t even want to wait til after our stay to write a review. 2. We are using our roaming data to write this review as of course, we have no wifi. All these things aside, the only positive piece to this endless disarray of hospitality hell is the wonderful staff. Polite, relatively efficient and consistent. Honestly, throw in a mirror, bedside tables and a couple of bedside switches for the lights so you don’t have to go and launch yourself off the cliff side of the bed would go a long way in fixing a couple of the insane amount of uncomfortable characteristics of the Ox Box.

This review is for the Monkey Room...I can't speak to the others. The hotel itself (pool, bar, etc) and the people working there were wonderful. But the bed was SO uncomfortable (completely sunken in the center and rock hard) that I had 2 nights of fitful sleep (waking up sore) until I realized I could put the huge floor pillows on the bed and sleep on top of those. For the $$ I paid, I should have been sleeping on air. Additionally, the room was so dark. I LOVE the look of the room, but black walls and no direct sunlight made for a bit of a bummer.

Doesn’t live up to the hype. We tried the Monkey room for one night after staying at De Lanna in the Old City for three nights. I can see how Mo Rooms would be a solid pick for a traveler unaware of Chiang Mai’s other hotels, but comparatively speaking, it’s weak. First and foremost our room had an awful smell - something like Listerine mixed with cleaning supplies - which made my girlfriend a little nauseous and gave me a headache; we were quite ready to leave after less than 24 hours. The shower was either too cold or too hot after 10+ min of fiddling with it. Room changes are extra, breakfast is solid but not included. Indoor pool is not so great and had loud construction next to it. The bed was uncomfortable and made a lot of noise when you moved at all. Otherwise it had everything we needed, and the staff was very friendly, per usual in Thailand. Perhaps the other rooms are more in line with how their pictures portray them, but for us we were a bit disappointed. Considering De Lanna was less money than Mo Rooms and was much better, it’s likely there are other options here.
