Nice guesthouse in a quiet location close to the old town. David was the most helpful host we have had in going through the map with us and making recommendations. Every restaurant he recommended was great. We also booked two excursions through them which were excellent and of better value than we could have achieved ourselves. Room was large and... More

Myself, my brother & sister stayed at the funky monkey guest house as recommended by a friend. Absolutely brilliant. 5. Stars all the way. Thoroughly recommended. Definitely one of the high lights of our trip through Thailand :)

This small and cozy guesthouse is the perfect way to enjoy everything that Chaing Mai has to offer. The room is very spacious, clean and comfortable. David, who is English, has lived there for 10 years and has a great understanding of local culture as well as he knows best restaurants around town, he has the best advice on everything... More

We stayed Sept 2014 and would recommend this place. Not many places cater well to families but the Funky Monkey was great. The rooms are big and an extra bed was provided for us as well, with still plenty of room left over. The kids loved the dogs and David and Nuy were great with our children. They looked after... More

One of the greatest places we stayed during our 3 weeks in Thailand. David and Nuy went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. They made us feel right at home. Gave us great advice on tours, places to eat, etc. The private tour with Sakorn was definitely a highlight. During our stay in Chang Mai we ran into... More

Great, no nonsense guesthouse that is as good as all the reviews. It is exactly as described on their website. From the email correspondence prior to our arrival to arranging for the taxi to take us to the airport on our departure the service was excellent. We stayed here for 5 nights and David and Nuy make it feel like... More

Sorry for the late review!! I stayed here in May and it could not have been better. David & Nuy are wonderful hosts. The rooms are huge and it is also a great location. I was greeted every morning with a drink (best pineapple shake in Thailand!) David and Nuy go out of their way to make your stay the... More

Stopped here as a group of four guys travelling Thailand and have no complaints. Very friendly owners. When we arrived David sat down with us and talked us through a map of the city to help us get our bearings, he also gave us some good tips on places to eat which was useful. Good sized room and clean shower,... More

Having visited Chiang Mai three years in a row, my husband and I keep returning to the Funky Monkey Guesthouse because it is simply the best and fantastic value for money. Its small with only three rooms and the owners David and Nuy are a great couple – not to forget Fat Dog and Mutley. The location is good, in... More

Me and my wife didn't actually stay here, we were actually staying at a hostel across the road which I won't name but sadly our hostel weren't competent enough to even arrange a scooter, bike or anything for us. This is where David and his wife Nuy thankfully stepped in to help as they were across the road. We can't... More
