Had lunch here a few times. Cheap and cheerful hole in the wall. Not stayed in the hotel. Have a funky monkey shake it's chocolate brain freeze. Great place for a quick lunch or quiet beer. Early coffee as well.

Not only were the rooms very comfortable, but Nuy and David were both great at helping us out. The location is right beside the old city and not too far from the airport. Nuy and David also had great restaurant and tour suggestions. Thanks for the awesome stay!!!

Guesthouse is located perfectly and the owners do a great job of welcoming you and giving great ideas for restaurants and things to do in the area. Guesthouse can also set you up with tours around the area but we did not try them

****In an effort of full disclosure, I did not get to stay at the Funky Moneky, but my experience with the owners was so marvelous- I must share it. A friend had stayed at the Funky Moneky and told me I had to stay there. I contacted Funky Monkey through their website and they wrote right back explaining they were... More

From the moment we arrived we knew we had stumbled upon a special place. Dave and Nuy were the best hosts and we loved their dogs too. It almost felt like staying at your cool relatives house.

I booked this room after doing my research and reading all the reviews so I knew what to expect. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious.
