We have stayed at the MO several times and thought it was about time we posted a review. The hotel is excellent. Some 5* hotels can be nice and without fault but are a little bland, not the MO. I think when you are paying a fair bit for a hotel its really important. It's not cheap but it is worth it. The staff do that bit more(especially butler & concierge for organising trips, restaurant suggestions etc) the food is amazing, and all the little touches from fruit by the pool to the bedtime notes are lovely. Though a large hotel it does not feel anonymous.
We love the location on the river, the pools and gardens are tranquil. Its also handy for getting about by boat, a change to the busy Bangkok roads.
The gym is very good as are the classes eg yoga. Decent gym equipment too. Pools nice and cool great during hot weather.
All in all a great hotel that does not disappoint but gets better each time.
