For example, you can choose  budget, family or weekend getaway as your mood. Why is this  useful? Well, for example if you choose family getaway as your mood, Mister Aladin will show you hotels which facilities are a good fit for both parents and kids.

So, how does this mood feature looks? Surely, it looks so fun, very helpful and I'm so excited to explore each mood! :)
