Funky Monkey Guesthouse is a truly special place. Their facilities are wonderful. The rooms are clean (cleaned everyday if you wish!) and spacious, with a lovely little sitting area to relax. The wifi was also fast and reliable, and the AC and hot water worked great as well. They also provide plenty of soap, shampoo and toilet paper. Most importantly,... More

We cannot recommend these guys enough. From the first email, David and Nuy offered us excellent service. Their guesthouse was full on the nights we wanted but they suggested a lovely alternative close to them. We organised all of our tours through them (as other reviewers have noted, the private tour is great- Kon was an entertaining driver and the... More

I just got back from a trip to Thailand and we stayed at the Funky Monkey guesthouse for 4 nights whilst we were in Chiang Mai. I booked it based on reviews I had read on Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I did! Before we had even arrived the correspondence over email was great. David and Nuy explained over... More

We stayed here as a group of 4 guys. They made up a room with 4 seperate beds which were comfy and clean. Room was very clean and better than expected. David was full of knowledge and maps and ideas which was great as we organised everything for our stay while checking in. We did a private tour with their... More

My partner and I had been recommended Funky monkey guesthouse by a friend, so we thought we'd give it a shot. We didn't know what to expect, but as soon as we arrived David and Nuy made us feel so welcome! After a delightful (much needed) welcome drink, David sat us down and went through the city map with us... More

Don't let the odd name throw you off, this place is awesome! It's simple but well thought-out, clean and comfortable. Coming back at the end of the day felt like coming back to my own place. There were so many small and considerate touches which really made our stay enjoyable. The room is massive and SO clean (what a treat!)... More

Myself & my partner have just returned from Thailand, Chiang Mai in itself is stunning but we felt like part of the family as soon as we arrived at FM. David had an amazing map planned with great eateries & markets on, he sat with us for an hour telling us little facts & phrases in northern thai. Nuy is... More

I have to give this the highest rating. David and Nuy have not only created an amazing guest house but are also the best hosts. Even booking was an easy experience, with immediate responses from my emails and recommendations for tours, places to eat etc. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend Funky Monkey to... More

I have to give David and Nuy highest ratings even though they could not accommodate us on this trip because they still bent over backwards to arrange tours, give top advice and make us feel at home in Chiang Mai. On their recommendation we stayed nearby at Top Garden which we rated highly (see my review) and we often ate... More
