Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a great stay the last time I was here and I had a very positive experience. The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were also very soft and comfortable. As for food, there's none offered but the guesthouse is conveniently located in the city so finding food is an easy task.

Cant recommend this place enough.... clean, large room and lovely owners. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and spent 8 days sleeping here. Perfect location just down from thaepae gate, and the new owners were brilliant. Nothing too much trouble and very helpful. I wish them all the best and have no doubt they will be full every night as I loved the place..

New owners started at this business the day we were leaving. David and Nuey the previous owners were fabulous. Always available for advice on where to dine and visit or just a friendly chat. Our large room had efficient air conditioning and a small balcony with a clothes airer. It was only a few minutes walk to the cafes and markets in the old town of Chiang Mai. An inexpensive option if you don’t need a resort. Be prepared to climb stairs to your room. We requested the room on 1st floor.

We had a great stay at funky monkey. David and Nuy made us feel at home. They gave us great tips on how to get around Chiang Mai. They also organized some unforgettable trips for us. It felt like visiting family The rooms are huge, the beds are very comfortable and the AC is good. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting an authentic Chiang Mai experience.

From my welcome, through my departure I can not say enough positive things about this guest house. Spotless, helpful loving hosts, location, arranged tours and activites - I can only hope every travel experience in my future will be as rewarding. David and Nuy set the bar high for others offering a small guest house experience.

I felt like I had come home when I stepped into Funky Monkey. Nuy greeted us with her gorgeous smile and a very welcome cold drink. David sat with us and took us over a map showing us many attractions and places to eat. There are stairs to your room but lots of help with your bags. The room ws huge, light, airy, cool and clean. Unlimited water supply in you room fridge, tea and coffee. Beds were oh so comfortable. Aircon and fan. Good tv reception. Lovely bathroom, big shower with hot hot water. Rooms are serviced every day. Nuy and David could not do more to make your stay with them a wonderful experience. Nuy will cook you a meal from 8am until 3pm. Her meals are varied and beautiful. Fruit available free at all times. Congratulations Nuy and David for making a home away from home for travellers. Thanks for the great chats David.

We spent 4 nights here in 2 rooms. Both rooms had great AC, a fan, nice hot shower, big comfy beds, small fridge fully stocked with water and an electric kettle for basic coffee/tea. The room on level 2 also had a small balcony which was great for airing our clothes. They made our beds and gave us fresh towels everyday, we could also access fresh fruit in the main area. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Nuy, David and Mutley. Nothing was too much for them to help us with including local advice and hints and tips. On arrival they also gave us a complimentary drink and David discussed places to see and things to do at length. The rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable, everything is always nice and clean. We all slept very well there and hardly noticed much noise and it was very quiet after 10pm there. We always had breakfast there and had lunch a few times, we were always very happy with our meals and their company. David and Nuy went above and beyond, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Chiang Mai

This was my first visit to chiang mai. When we arrived from the airport we stayed at another guesthouse before staying at ENP for a week. We stayed at the funky monkey for 4 nights and were greeted by Nuy, David and Mutley. From the moment we met them they were warm, friendly and so helpful. Nuy even lent me her power adapter for my laptop. The rooms had great airconditionining and a fan with super comfy beds! Nice hot shower and a small couch. Our rooms also had a kettle and coffee or tea with a fridge always fully stocked with water. The nights were quiet there and I found it easy to sleep. They also have fresh fruit available to snack on in the main area and also a fridge with cold drinks that you add on your ongoing tab. If we needed help or advice David and Nuy were always more than happy to help us where possible. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

During a visit to Thailand 6 years ago we stayed at Funky Monkey Guest House. We vowed to return as it was by far the best accommodation we stayed in during our 12 week South East Asia trip. Also because the hosts David & Nuy were extremely helpful from the moment we emailed them to arrange our stay in Chiang Mai. They made fantastic suggestions of trips to do and at very reasonable prices. Our favourite was another tour with Sakorn but this time to an entirely different area and away from the usual tourist trail. David is happy to share his extensive knowledge of Thailand & the islands as well as invaluable suggestions of what is doable in time available. Funky Monkey has a very homely feel, you are always welcomed with a smile & Nuy's food is divine. The rooms are huge & immaculately clean with the most comfortable beds you can imagine. Thank you David & Nuy, we shall be in touch to arrange another trip to Chiang Mai and your superbly located Guest House when we next visit Thailand.

We stayed (5 nights) with David and Nuy at the recommendation of our friends who had previously stayed with them. From the moment Nuy replied to my emails, I knew we had chosen a great place. She was quick to reply and her recommendations of tours couldn’t be beat. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and felt like we had known them for years. They were great resources for where to eat, where to explore, what tours to do, and genuinely enjoyable people to be around and hang out with. Our room had more than we needed and was very comfortable. For the price, I was honestly expecting much less. We ate breakfast every morning downstairs and was probably our favorite spot to get breakfast. The worst part of our trip was saying goodbye. This place and these people greatly exceeded our expectations.
