We tried booking at Funky Monkey but they were sold out well in advance, basis previous recommendations I landed up at David's... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this place for the price (although most things in Thailand are rather cost friendly). The staff are amazing, helpful, friendly. You check in and get a 20 minute detailed explanation with a map about the best places to eat and a range of them. The rooms are huge, the bathroom is clean, good hot water... More

On my first trip to Chiang Mai when my girlfriend and I knew very little about the city we were looking to rent a bike. Someone suggested to try Funky Monkey Guesthouse as they offered good rates for bike rental. We visited the guesthouse and were made to feel welcome and rented a bike for a month which then became...

We didn't stay as they were full so can't comment on that. Tried to rent a scooter. The price was good considering they're newer bikes. They were friendly at first. However, when it came time to sign up the woman asked to keep my original passport. They aren't the only ones who ask this by the way. I understand that... More

5 star luxury its not, but for around £20 a night you get a large room, free water and fruit, in room fridge, air con, great owners and the most alert guard dogs you will ever see! Location is close enough to the center, 10min walk to the night bazaar or a quick tuk tuk ride but is in a... More

It would appear that nothing is too much trouble for David and Noy, from the moment you enter their guesthouse their genuine warmth and hospitality shines thru. No matter how busy they may be they always make time to offer valuable advise. The rooms are very spacious and the staff an absolute credit to David and Noy. Everything is clean... More

For the reasonable rate, you get exceptional value for money. The rooms are huge, very clean and ours had a king size bed and a single bed in it, table, tv with a UK flim channel and wardrobe/chest of drawers and still lots of space left! There is a maid service to clean your room and give you fresh towels... More
