MO rooms: Each of the TWELVE rooms is an individual artist’s interpretation of THEIR Chinese Zodiac (Sheng Xiao or Birth Animal). The construction MO’s exterior structure was a collaborative project which saw designers, architects and astrologers piling different sizes of the box-shaped rooms on top of each other in accordance with Feng Shui ASTROLOGY. 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.

This is not for those pristine have to have it like the Hilton travelers. This is for the artists and art lovers who don't mind something different and are willing to really enjoy some great design. Each room was designed by a different artist. The whole place is worth walking through even if you don't choose to stay here. Reasonable pricing, really nice folks, right next to the old city walls (half a block away) close to all the good restaurants and night market. This place is really fun. But it's not a square room with a chair and a bed. In fact there may be nothing square in this whole place. Think movement and curves and interesting surfaces!

I love the design and its concepts, decide that I'll have to live there for my stay in Chiang Mai. It turns out a bit dissappointing at the end for 4 nights stay. I booked a delux studio room from booking.com, and found out later that I was only able to get one of the delux rooms which is one of three smallest rooms. To be fair, the room looks very nice, but not the most comfortable place to live in it. It's very small and makes one feel a bit claustrophobic. The bathroom shower doesn't have enough pressure, and the water is not hot enough. Wireless internet signal is not very strong inside the room. In a nutshell, it makes me have the feeling of "pretty shoes are not meaning for walking". It looks nice, but it might kill your feet wearing it for a while.

If I know how much of difference it is in space, I'd rather spent a bit more to book one of the delux suite rooms. It's a fancy boutique B&B with unique features, but cost twice or three times the price of same standard guest houses nearby in Chiang Mai.

The staff are super nice. Although the breakfast taste great, I don't understand why it always takes a really long time to prepare (20+ minute for fried rice). The location is unbeatable, convenient to go anywhere.

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.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. There's no welcome and no assistance at all when we arrived. The staff only confirmed room type and collected money from us. Other than that, nothing! We had to ask anything one by one by ourselves. To be honest, location of the hotel is good. It's near the market and city center. The design of the rooms are good (We stayed in Pig and Dragon room), but please don't expect everything is good in the room. Most of the facilities are old and inconvenient for guest. My girl friend almost fell down because of the carpet in the room. Water from Shower head was not hot enough and pressure was so weak. Bed sheet and pillow cover are old, so many cotton hairs were stuck on our pants and cloths. We stayed in the Dragon room (1st floor) on the 2nd and 3rd day, it's very noisy outside our room. We didn't have good sleep during these two days (The noise from outside and air-con in the room).

The most terrible thing was, we tried to charge our phone on the 3rd night. The electricity of entire room short-circuit when I plugged in the adapter at 2am. (We used the same charger in Bangkok, China and my hometown for over one year). We are scared absolutely. The charger and cable was destroyed by this accident. Then we sought assistance from the staff. The staff told us "I will fix the electricity problem for you", but for the charger, you have to seek assistance again tomorrow morning". He had to inform his manager and he didn't care the accident at all after he knew the situation. His attitude, expression and tone... really ridiculous!!! He was unable to provide any assistance to us, even we want to borrow a charger or cable from him (No battery from this accident until we go back to our hometown. How inconvenient you can imagine). We eventually went to our bed after 3am. On the next day, we sought their assistance again. The staff told us that they had already contacted with the Apple store in my hometown, we can change a new charger from Apple store in my hometown. Ridiculous AGAIN!!! There's no apple store in my hometown indeed. How can they contact? Where did they contact? What did they do during this period? They only lied to their guest and didn't want to provide any solution or assistance. I had only 10 minutes left to go to airport after the conversation with the receptionist. He had to call again, then one lady (I think she is the manager?) talked to me again over the phone. She claimed that this is not their responsibility (So, It's my responsibility?). After 15 minutes, The lady arrived hotel (We was already late for our flight then), She had exactly the same conversation with us over the phone previously. Finally, she was unable to give us a solution and we must to leave. The only thing we can do was we left our contact method to them.

I won't stay in this hotel and recommend this hotel to anybody.

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.

Pros:
- Great location, walking distance to both the Old City and Night Bazaar.
- unique hotel, arty, like no place I've ever seen before

Cons:
- uncomfortable bed (-and being high up would not suit the less mobile)
- no real separation between toilet and bedroom
- no storage space and only place to open suitcases is the floor
- low water pressure in shower
- tiny safe
- noisy building site next door starting work early
- below average breakfast

Having reviewed the wide choice of hotels available in Chiang Mai and using my usual filter based on review scores on here and other agent sites, we chose Mo Rooms for its location, unique looking rooms and acceptable price (£51 per night).

Check in was basic compared to most experiences in Thailand at similar cost, no welcome juice, refreshing towel, seat or anyone to collect luggage- receptionist was polite and gave us the Ox room which according to the Mo rooms website is the Exclusive Suite and most expensive as advertised on their website today for THB4190.

After dragging the suitcases over arty cobbles you get to pool area which was also the lift and stairs lobby, the pool looked cool but not that welcoming.

Ox room is on top floor, it has impressive inward inclined entrance double doors that felt like a castle with a padlock. Once in the room the first thing that hits you is the heat- one wall is all glass and even with blackout curtains, having all but the floor as external walls means it heats up rapidly and being all bare concrete works just like a night storage heater... There are two air con units to counter this, one with remote the other older and with limited control. The air con did a good job when in the room but like most hotels now, it turned off when the key is removed and by the time you next get back to the room it's cooking again.

The key feature to this room is the freestanding high bed, at approximately 1 m high it is best mounted from the provided block, when you get on the bed you are instantly hit by how hard it is, despite the ample height to play with the mattress is less than 10 cm deep on top of the solid stone/ concrete base- I like firm beds but this was on another scale and not conducive to a good sleep.

Walls were naked structural concrete which did look quite modern but also felt a bit like squatting under a motorway bridge.

The toilet is shielded from the room with a see through fabric curtain so little privacy and since used toilet roll couldn't be flushed it sat in the open top bin in the hot room...

The shower water pressure was minimal but did have a fixed and flexible head to utilise the little pressure as best possible, the extractor fan was loud and industrial with the exposed wiring joint hanging from the ceiling with a bit of electrical tape for insulation. I managed to turn it off for peace at night but never managed to get it going in the morning, luckily the shower pressure meant there was little moisture to extract.

Sink was in a dark cubby hole away from toilet and shower and had the only mirror in the room but no shelf or light for make up, shaving etc.

There was a coat stand but nowhere else to put any luggage so the only option is to open cases on the floor and live out of them, with these open and the bed taking up most of the room, there is limited space to move around.

The safe was too small for an iPad.

The light switches were not logical and none were within reach of the freestanding bed so had to turn them off and then climb up in the dark.

There was a tv mounted above the entrance door but as the bed was freestanding and without a head board was hard to view it, there were a couple of chairs and a phone table but these were behind the bed.

Whilst I wasn't disturbed by any traffic or bar noise, Next door is a building site and work commenced cutting concrete at 8am on a Sunday morning and was still going strong at 1200 when we left.

Breakfast wasn't great, limited options and first in Thailand for us without a buffet, no fruit juice included and the sausage and ham were tasteless, the tiny bit of bacon bacon and scrambled egg were very good. TV was on loud in the breakfast room and staff were more into that than the customers.

Overall an interesting stay but not one I would recommend to others unless you are only interested in the form and can live without the function.

We stayed in Mo rooms in the beginning of January 2015. We had booked a room for a couple for three nights with a major internet booking agent. When we showed up at the hotel they told us there was a problem with our booking and that there was actually not one room available for us but that we would have to change rooms every day (!). Even though we didn't like this idea and thought they could have informed us in advance we moved in since we were tired after long long flights and already had payed the room through the agent in advance. We thought we might speak to the manager to sort out things the next day.
But next day she said there was nothing she could do for us and even the ridiculous refund of 200 baht she offered to us we never received. She even said that we got an upgrade by changing rooms everyday!
Taking into consideration that a room in this place costs 2700 baht per night the whole attitude was really disappointing, actually the total absence of any service.
It kind of represented the staffs attitude we saw in the next days in general. Halfhearted, lethargic people sucking out as much money from tourists as possible. If you know Chiang Mai a bit you will know that for 2 nights price in this hotel you can rent an Apartment room for a whole month. Considering this the people running the hotel at no point reached the level of luxury suggested by the price of the accommodation.

This is very sad since the location of the hotel is very convenient and the style of the hotel is very special and beautiful. Each room is individually designed in a very stylish and loving way. The interior creates a very pleasant atmosphere and even if you are on thapae rd you don't hear the noise from the street. The only disappointment was that the swimming pool was not in such a state that we would have liked to jump in. The breakfast was quite good.

So finally I wouldn't recommend to stay in this hotel. I know a docent of accommodations and hotels in Chiang Mai that will offer you more quality for a lot less money.

Had an unfortunate stay at Mo rooms. For the price I was expecting a far nicer experience.

The rooms are definitely beautifully designed and unique and quite interesting. They fit the bill as livable art. Further, the front desk staff was consistently immensely helpful in planning everything from motorbike rental to day trip suggestions. But to pay over $100 a night for a cold shower and no wifi in the room is flat out unacceptable. The front desk said that the problems were likely due to unseasonably heavy rain, but we weren't offered a solution. We were disappointed and forfeited another nights stay (because we tried to cancel too late) and paid only marginally more to stay down the street at the Meridien.

Beautiful hotel but overpriced if basics like hot water and Internet aren't reliable in the rain. The $20 bungalows in town all had hot water and strong wifi in the rooms.

I felt that designer who designed this artistic hotel might only focus on the design but totally ignore comfy and quality of living. Full of mosquitos, super small windows, outside of this windows are the mess of kitchen stuffs. Noisy air con, no storage it made it more difficult after we shopped a lot of handcrafts from Sunday market. I will say this hotel main for look but not stay. It's pretty unique, right at the town centre, but be aware, that street is very quiet at night, not even a food stall open except 7-11. Anyway, I will not recommend this hotel to the people who wanted a comfortable place.....by the way, no ANY cover for the creative washroom, it means you will smell EVERYTHING from your "business". Yes, how pleasant it is. ^_^ We travelled with 2 old folks and 3 adults, none of us like this place but luckily that was only one short night.

Staffs are very helpful and friendly, breakfast is nice. Everything looks good, just try not to stay there....
