We stayed at Funky Monkey for 4 nights and had a huge room at the top with good views. The rooms have everything you need - even settes and fridge freezer in ours. The bed was very comfortable and everything was immaculately clean. David & Nuy were fantastic, friendly relaxed hosts and on arrival David sat with us and explained... More

Ask for the room at the top, if you have a choice. There is only one room on each floor. We had the fourth floor (the ENTIRE fourth floor) and the place is huge. Due to staying in Thailand during the busy season, we could only book our stay at the Monkey for three nights and then had to move... More

Arrived here first thing upon arriving in the old city. David, the husband and co-owner greeted us but unfortunately had no rooms. We stayed for breakfast (quite good) and he offered to help our band of merry travelers sort out the city. Unlike a sales pitch David gave us insights into the ins and outs of less traveled paths, places... More

I first had contact with David and Nuy four years ago when I had a wonderful stay at The Funky Monkey. I've since been a frequent visitor to Chiang Mai, and although I stay at long term accommodation nowadays, I still always go to see these guys for my Scooter Hire. There's literally hundreds of places you can rent Bikes... More

We stayed at the Funky Monkey for 6 nights. We are a family of 6, spanning 3 generations, ages 13-71. The guesthouse was kind enough to make all of us comfortable inside the same room. Everyone had their own bed, super clean, hot water, great location, yummy breakfast downstairs, beyond reasonably priced and advice we could trust...Basically perfect. David, Nuy,... More

I cannot honestly say that I have stayed here, so the extent of my review is limited in scope. I have been to Thailand three times, always for a month, or more each time. I have stayed at many different places throughout the country. I stopped by the Funky Monkey to inquire about a room and the facility in general.... More

Hello Bob, I am very surprised about this feedback & i am confused as to your recollection of our conversation. When you called in to ask about rooms, I answered all of your questions about our room rate & also explained about the differences in rooms eg balconies etc. During our conversation you asked if you could see the rooms...

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a warm reception from David, Nuy and staff. Immediately we were offered information on the cities hotspots to eat, see and visit. As we had just arrived in Thailand , this was unbelievably helpful. Throughout the stay we were made to feel very welcome and offered assistance whenever needed. Nuy and her staff made... More

We stayed at the funky monkey after reading great reviews on trip advisor. Believe the hype, this place is hands down the best place we've stayed. The hosts David, Nuy, Fatdog and Muttley are without doubt the finest hosts we've encountered in all of our travels. When we first arrived David spent time to find out what kind of trip... More

We stayed at the funky monkey after reading great reviews on trip advisor. This place more than exceeded our expectations. David, Nuy, Fatdog and Muttley are the finest hosts we've encountered in all our travels. So much so that after returning from a trip to Pai (which David arranged transport for) it truly felt like coming home. On arrival David... More
