“Lovely Boutique Hotel For A Unique Experience”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Unique and trendy hotel. The atmosphere is nice, and the breakfast that I had at the restaurant was delicious. The location is very central and convenient to the Night Bazaar and most attractions in Chiang Mai. The reason I am only giving an average rating is because it's a spendy stay, but for one night, worth the cost. Try booking through Agoda for a discount. Also, it's more of a honeymooner's or lover's type place.

The design of the rooms are really funny and they created a lot with less. We had a nice stay, but everything is a little bit far away. The night was very noisy and the breakfast was really worst. No need to use it. It is a waste of breakfast time and a waste of food. You will find better food in the town.
If you like funny design and you can ignore noise and do you need no breakfast, than is a place which can be recommended.
If you can catch a nice offer just stay there, but keep in your mind, nightbazar is to walk for 20 minutes and later it could be noisy and in the morning is only a cheap and not really good breakfast waiting for you.

Chiang Mai is by far my favourite place in Thailand and this stay was made so perfect by this wonderful hotel? A very laid back atmosphere which pretty much sums up the city and a fantastic location. The pool is more there for decoration really, not sure i would swim in it but you have more fun sat at the bar, chatting to the residents and locals!

Room Tip: Rooms are very quirky and fun. We stayed in the monkey room and although fantastic, the bathroom is...

A very laid back and cozy restaurant close by the City Walls at Tha Pae Road. Quite cheap and delicious food. I had an excellent Tom Ka Gai and my wife had the Ceasar Salad. They also have 2 for 1 coctails. Very good Mojitio. Highly recomended.

Mo Rooms delivers what it promised- great room, great location within walking distance to the restaurants along the river. Service is fantastic , coffee is good here. Great place to sit and watch the world goes by in late afternoon from the mini Garden of Eden right on the street level or on the balcony above the lobby.
Definitely go back again !

Mo Rooms was a great respite for us as we travelled from Myanmar to Chiang Mai. It's location right outside the thae pae gate was great cos it means we could walk to the Sunday walking street and the nigh bazaar. Excellent silver shops right across the street and bookshop lane round a turn. Taste from Heaven is on the same side of the street for very good vegetarian food.

Rooms are so interesting with only 12 rooms themed according to the Chinese horoscope. It seems that every design detail has been looked into at this boutique hotel. Breakfast was excellent with really good coffee (again, we came over from Myanmar, so we don't take freshly brewed coffee for granted).

Staff was exceedingly helpful too.

If I have to find something to complain about, it would be the mozzies at the pool area.

we loved this place! beautiful rooms, very nice restaurant (mos penne are great!) and nice staff. the pool is also great to cool down after a hot day in chiang mai - and since no one seems to use it, you are always alone in it (ok, have to admit, the pool is in the center of the hotel, so you are not really alone).
each room is different and we stayed in the dog and dragon, both of which are great. i would recommend the bigger rooms, because the small ones can be a bit too small. best is to take a look at all of them and then decide.
in front of some rooms you have little places to sit outside, which is really nice.

overall, a great place! very design-driven and special!

as there is always something to improve: breakfast is a bit limited, but very tasty. some parts of the rooms seem a bit worn. and the air conditioning is quite noisy in the two rooms we were in.

Room Tip: the bigger rooms are better (e.g. ox, dog, dragon)
