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...

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!)...

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...

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...

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...

This is my fourth trip to Thailand, I have previously stayed at 4 star hotels but this little guesthouse tops them by a mile. We stayed ten days with Dave and Nuy thankfully they had a cancellation which allowed us to spend most of our time with them. The. Guesthouse is excellently located a few steps from the moat. It...
