I'm young, and since I had heard that the MO can be a bit stuffy, decided to stay at the Pen. It was also cheaper and had free internet ^

I got upgraded to one of the balcony rooms on arrival, and everything during my stay was wonderful. I really didn't want to leave, especially after my last dinner at Thiptara, and I'll definitely stay there again when I go back to BKK.

I didn't go to the MO, but waiting for the hotel ferries, the guests getting on the MO boat definitely seemed to be more "old style" as yycworldtraveler said. The Pen seemed to be a little younger and hipper.
