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

A highlight of our trip! The Funky Monkey Guesthouse is truly a special place. From the moment we arrived, we felt completely comfortable and at home. David and Nuy are very exceptional hosts. They both helped us with everything we needed and provided us with information to make our stay in Chiang Mai one of our favorite places. David, thank... More

Sadly the Funky Monkey were full when I turned up in Chiang Mai, but the owners, David and Nui were so kind helping me to find another place. I used their wifi all the time as at my guest house it didn't work well and I also went in a couple of very good tours they arranged for me. Lovely... More

Our family of five stayed four nights with Dave and Nuy. The guesthouse was located in an excellent location just outside the old quarter close to good food and night markets. The owner is very knowledgeable about the area. We booked two good tours with him. The accommodation was clean and they offer affordable breakfast options. We highly recommend the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Funky Monkey for four days. We were on a business/vacation. David was a huge help in planning our itinerary, gathering information and finding anything we asked. He was quick to answer any questions and give advice via email- this was all prior to our trip! Once we arrived at the Funky Monkey we... More

Recently stayed in Chiang Mai for the second time, but was my first time in Funky Monkey Guesthouse. The day of our arrival we were greeted by Dave and Nuy, and they went through pretty much everything with us, we have something to do each day. They were always available for questions, and genuinely attentive to our needs, we would... More

I was so very happily surprised and very welcomed as a passerby at Funky Monkey. I am thoroughly impressed by the level of care and attention David and Nuy provide to their guests. They have helped me in more ways than I can express, going above and beyond any of my levels of expectations. David is a deep well of... More

David and Nuy are most helpful hosts and the rooms were great. We had a family stay for 4 days and were most pleased to stay here. Location near eastern gates and Sompet market for fruit&food .. also in walking distance to Night bazaar. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed at the Funky Monkey for 3 nights. David and Nuy welcomed us and went out of their way to make our stay amazing. The rooms had everything we needed, great location, spacious and spotless. We ate Nuy's awesome breakfast every morning, even after we moved to another guesthouse down the street as the Funky Monkey was booked. My... More

Stayed for a couple of days in Febuary. Reviews were good but didn`t expect it to be that excellent. The rooms are huge, very nice, super clean and the beds are so comfortabel! Location is central but quiet - also in short walking distance for a visit of the old city and all markets. You get everything you need and... More
