5 star luxury its not, but for around £20 a night you get a large room, free water and fruit, in room fridge, air con, great owners and the most alert guard dogs you will ever see! Location is close enough to the center, 10min walk to the night bazaar or a quick tuk tuk ride but is in a...

It would appear that nothing is too much trouble for David and Noy, from the moment you enter their guesthouse their genuine warmth and hospitality shines thru. No matter how busy they may be they always make time to offer valuable advise. The rooms are very spacious and the staff an absolute credit to David and Noy. Everything is clean...

For the reasonable rate, you get exceptional value for money. The rooms are huge, very clean and ours had a king size bed and a single bed in it, table, tv with a UK flim channel and wardrobe/chest of drawers and still lots of space left! There is a maid service to clean your room and give you fresh towels...

Found this place on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. This is a small guesthouse in a perfect location in Chiang Mai. Room was very large, clean, simple, with small balcony and was inexpensive! Feels like you are staying in a home. They offer breakfast and lunch and snacks. We enjoyed hanging out on the front patio with the owners and...

David and Nuy made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. David provided us with a map, highlighting many of the "to do" attractions, along with many eating choices, which was very helpful.

Thanks for the feedback - we are pleased you had a great time at Funky Monkey & really enjoyed our private tour & Woody's elephant day.

We stayed here for four nights and were not disappointed. Nuy and David were very hospitable, and were always able to offer great travel advice, as well as book tours for us. We are travelling with two young children so it was great to find a huge room suitable for the four of us, at such a reasonable price.
