I did a four day solo trip to Chiang Mai and contacted David and Nuy at Funky Monkey when I saw the great reviews on Trip Advisor. I've had mixed experiences based on reviews on TA, but I have to say, Funky Money was great. From the moment I arrived, David and Nuy were very welcoming and accomodating. David gave... More

We stayed 3 Nights on the top floor of the guesthouse. From the very beginning David and Nuy were very welcoming. David provided us with an amazing map of the city detailing all the various food locations and hidden gems. The room was clean and very comfortable. If your ever hungry Nuy makes great food up until the late afternoon.... More

I honestly don't know what was better, the amazingly clean and large rooms or the great company of David and Nuy! They truly make you feel like one of the family, I travelled alone so this was a huge plus for me. Also being a dog lover they have 2 of the coolest dogs, so really helped cuz I miss... More

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Funky Monkey. This is a small guesthouse with only 3 rooms but in a great location. David gave us a lot of useful information including a map with restaurant recommendations. Our room was large, clean, cold a/c, strong wifi & they kept the refrigerator stocked with bottled water. We highly recommend the... More

We had an excellent stay at the Funky Monkey. We are a family of four traveling the world (collinsworldclass.com). David and Nuy were superb hosts who gave us plenty of great advice on what to do around town. Their ideas were economical and spot on in terms of what would interest my family. The family room was big, very clean... More

I have never taken the time to bother with writing a review on Tripadvisor, but my experience was so stellar, I couldn't help myself. David and Nuy were extremely helpful hosts. I traveled there with my two sisters back in November, and he arranged a really lovely guided tour for us that included a hike in a national park, a... More

Very clean and very large rooms. Host's David and Nui are wonderful. A/C is quiet and cold. Bathroom and shower were tip top. Walking distance to street fair and other attractions. WiFi worked perfect. We really enjoyed every minute at Funky Monkey, Thank You David and Nui very much.

My friend recommended me to them and although my boyfriend and I couldn't stay there due to their rooms being filled, I booked all my trips thru them and they made the entire process soooo easy. I did it all from Germany via email and David and Nuy were the most helpful. Once we arrived everything was ready to go... More

Firstly, I would like to thank David & Nuy again for their amazing hospitality and service. They went above and beyond helping us with anything we needed, whether that be within Funky Monkey guesthouse, or elsewhere in Chiang Mai. Getting there: Was 150 baht in a taxi from the airport (£3, so cheap!) and was about 15 mins. Because this... More
