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. Just a short walk from anywhere most tourists want to go, including an awesome local food market that we ended up visiting every day (the lady who sold all kinds of delicious glutinous rice desserts...

Stayed here on vacation with a few friends. David and Nuy were extremely helpful, set up a tour for us to see some temples nearby and to a coffee plantation with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Finally understand the configuration of the Wat! They also helped us with restaurant recommendations. One particular place, which has no name, just a wooden door,...

A great, comfortable little spot near the heart of all the action. The rooms are basic but spacious and very clean. Unlimited free drinking water, full sized fridge and fruit to keep you going. On a busy little soi, busy by day; quiet by night. The owners , David and Nuy, are hospitable, knowledgeable and helpful. They provided us with...

David & Nuy (hosts) were incredibly friendly, down to earth, & helpful during our stay at Funky Monkey!! Nuy was an outstanding cook & gave us many recommendations of other places to eat during our day explorations. David actually suggested a location to visit later in our trip (Kanchanaburi) that was not on our itinerary & we were so grateful...

Firstly, thank you Nuy and David for making us feel so welcome and for all your help. You have a real treasure of a place and should feel very proud of your little piece of paradise. We planned our trip around eight moths back and Nuy was a huge help with booking tours and trains. It was great to have...
