My husband and I stayed at the Funky Monkey for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon. We usually stay in hotels, and this was our first experience at a guest house. Needless to say, we were blown away by how much David and Nuy went above and beyond for us. Upon arriving, David offered us a complimentary drink and... More

My friend and I have been traveling in Thailand for a while and staying at the Funky Monkey has been a great experience. The rooms are big, clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable which is all you could want in terms of accommodation. The guesthouse is in a great location just outside the old city. There are shops,... More

David and Nuy make this place amazing. I came to Chiang Mai (April-May) with a group of friends--we took the overnight train from Bangkok. As soon as we arrived at the guesthouse, we were given complimentary nice, cold drinks and David sat down with us for an hour and gave us tons of tips, from dining, to nightlife, to markets,...

We loved the place! The owners, Nui and David were very nice and helped us around the city perfectly. My only complaint would be that we planned to go into town for lunch and dinner, but stayed in way to often since we loved Nui's food.(perfect salad and shrimps.) AC's are perfect and we also rented a scooter from them.... More

Funky Monkey Guesthouse & Tours Chiang Mai is a must stop for anyone who wants to get great advice about who, what and where to go in the region, a clean comfy BIG room with air conditioning, the company of Mutley and Fat Dog and their amazing owners Nui and David. Wish we could stay here long term but, they... More

I stayed at Funky Monkey for 3-4 days. The top floor was amazing. AC (really cold and legit) and fan with private mini fridge in the room. Rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels placed on our beds. They made sure the trash was taken out and amenities like soap, toilet paper, shampoo were always in stock in our room.... More

I made the mistake of not pre booking. Owners were incredibly helpful, after making a few calls, took me to a colleagues establishment that had vacancy. Whilst waiting I was given refreshment, Tiger balm for recent pesky mosquito bites, even a few Yorkshire tea bags! ( Owner still maintaining his roots ) I could not have been made to feel... More

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
