The Funky Monkey has become my second home in Thailand, this trip we had to stay at at a chain hotel while we waited for a room to become available and were so pleased when we finally got here as we had a fantastic friendly welcome from David, Nuy and the dogs. As always we were directed to the best... More

Enjoyed our time at the Funky Monkey, we stayed 5 nights, and found David and Nuy very helpful, the room was huge, very clean and had some nice touches, was able to pick Davids brain about where to go on the scooter, and he gave us a map with his food picks on it, which we worked through. Would recommend... More

The Funky Monkey Folk are family to us and we excitedly returned to Chiang Mai this weekend for a reunion. David, Nuy, Fatdog and Mutley are amazing hosts, terrific friends, helpful and kind. The rooms are still incredibly comfortable. They are large and the beds are the perfect firmness! Really, we slept like logs all 4 nights. We last visited... More

I stayed at Funky Monkey for two nights while visiting Chiang Mai in August. My room was spacious and very clean, and the AC and complimentary bottles of water were much appreciated. I also went on a fantastic tour put together by David himself. It included a number of sites and attractions that weren't overrun by tourists. It was also... More

This was maybe the 4th time I have stayed with David and Nuy, each time visiting with different friends so they can experience Chiang Mai. Once again the rooms were cleaned everyday and the facilities the same as always - big rooms, clean bathrooms and a large fridge and good aircon and fans in the room. Rooms are ideal for... More

We stayed at Funky Monkey as a couple for four nights in July. From helping us book tours, to restaurant and local advice, to morning chats over (great) coffee, David and Nuy were outstanding hosts and go out of their way to ensure their guests feel at home. Our room was impeccably clean, huge and comfortable with great AC that... More

We were travelling as a group of 3 young girls and visited Chang Mai quite early in our travels around Thailand. We were really looking forward to Chang Mai and staying at the Funky Monkey as we had heard so many good things about it! It certainly lived up to its reputation! We arrived early in the morning having taken... More

Our stay (4 days) started with a welcome drink offered by David and Nuy. David told us some of his Chiang Mai "top secrets" and gave us a detailed, self made map with places where to eat best, including vegetarian restaurants, food markets and everything else one would wish for. The room itself was very very big and super clean... More

The best experience I've ever had of a guesthouse/hotel/Bnb/hostel/not sleeping in my own bed. Incredible service from both David and nuy, both really down to earth and genuinely nice people. Really enjoyed chatting to them both and found them to be full of useful tips and info but also just generally cool people to talk to and learn from. David... More
