David and Nuy are fantastic hosts with lots of local knowledge. They have so many recommendations from places to eat to day excursions. We loved our stay in our room which was clean with fresh linen and towels daily. We took the funky monkey day trip with a guide named Sakorn - he was great fun and full of information...

My wife and I stayed at Funky Monkey guesthouse for 5 days about three weeks ago. The room itself absolutely lived up to previously excellent reviews and the owners, David and Nuy were the most gracious hosts we could have possibly hoped for. We stayed on the fourth floor, which although requires climbing a few flights of narrow steps, is...

Loved this place!! Conveniently located and easy to find, we were greeted by David, Nuy and the most chill dogs Nutley and Fat Dog. Check in was easy and we were provided with great instructions and pointers/map of the city. We had an absolutely spacious room with AC, a fridge packed with cold water and a nice bathroom with hot...

I'd been recommended to stay the Funky Monkey and we weren't disappointing. Right from the off David and Nuy gave us a warm welcome and were so helpful in giving us an introduction to Chiang Mai over a cup of coffee. The room was perfect for us, cleaned daily with fresh towels etc and Nuys breakfasts were fantastic. The location...

David and Nuy are truly stand-up people and I highly recommend booking tours through them. They will give you honest feedback and have been in Chiang Mai for quite some time now, so they know what they are talking about. I booked a custom tour that they have set up with one of their close friends who used to be...

Absolutely amazing! Throughout our Thailand trip, we referred to the Funky Monkey as the "best case scenario." Big, clean, comfortable rooms with hot water and a large shower. Perfect location to see the old city and walk to the night bazaar. And incredible hosts Nuy, David, Mutley and Fat Dog were super helpful in giving recommendations and booking us for...

My husband and I visited Chiang Mai November 2016 for 5 days. The Funky Monkey is super clean, comfortable, well located guesthouse in Chiang Mai.
