Chiang mai is busy and our plans change so we are currently in our 4th Guesthouse in just over a week! Easy to see why funky monkey is one of the best rated. It isn't a 5 star hotel but the price isn't either. It is a very well run very clean Guesthouse with owners that care and are very... More

We stayed 5 nights at Funky Monkey and it was great. The rooms were very large and clean. Full bathroom with hot water. Air conditioning was great as well and the room was equipped with a fridge (and drinking water), cable TV, and wifi. David and Nuy were fantastic with their hospitality and recommendations for Chiang Mai. Lots of temples... More

My dad and I stayed at Funky Monkey for three nights. We were taken aback by how big and beautiful our room was! We had a double and a twin, a fridge, vanity, huge window, couch, chair, coffee table, and the shower had a shower curtain! We appreciated that the toilet paper and towels were consistently replenished each night. The... More

David and Nuy are a wonderful team who went out of their way to help us enjoy Chiang Mai to the fullest. David is full of useful information that he is happy to share because he actually cares about his guests. Nuy had our full itinerary laid out for us and ready when we walked in which explained exactly how... More

2nd hotel on trip around Thailand . Took advantage of the taxi booking service at the airport and it only cost us 150 baht to get to The Funky Monkey . The guest house is in a great location close to the old city walls and with the benefit of David and Nui's local knowledge we had our own map... More

My friend and I stayed at Funky Monkey Guesthouse (FMG) from 10th to 14th January, 2016. My friend had discovered it after reading lots of positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews are well deserved and FMG is great! We arrived from a two week tour in another country where the hotels had been horrible; blood stained sheets, dirty towels,... More

Simple clean room. The hosts are the best. Really good food. Took care of all of our tour needs. Overall a great place to stay. The only negative for us is the beds are very very firm - this seems to be the norm in all the Asia countries we have visited so it not something specific to the Funky... More

I traveled to Thailand with my mother and sister both of who had never traveled before. After 2 days in Bangkok, I think my mother was ready to head back to the states! We arrived at the guesthouse and what a wonderful change of pace! David and Nuy were wonderful hosts. Always willing to help but always giving us space... More

We travel a lot and don't like to spend big money on accommodations. Found FM because it had a high rating on TA and it fully deserves its status. It's the people, right? David and Nuy really care, they want you to enjoy your stay not just in the building, but in CM, and take as much time as needed... More

We can't say enough wonderful things about our experience in Chiang Mai. David and Nuy were wonderful hosts who went above and beyond to help us have a great trip. Nuy can cook!! And David was so helpful in creating tours for us that were once in a lifetime experiences. We recommend The Funky Monkey wholeheartedly.
