There appeared to be some confusion about our booking and we ended up in an annexe next door. A comfortable enough room but rather basic shower and lack of furnishings. that having been said, owner and major domo were charming and helpful, including providing a very good breakfast (all 3 breakfasts were delicious) at 6.15 a.m. The view was onto...

We checked this place in booking.com but we didn't want to book it until we see the room because the reviews said that was noise ( and after to check the place i why,i don't think we could even have rested properly there, it is more a common room than a hostel) When we arrived to the place asking for...

The place is well located. Not too close, not too far from the city. The rooms are OK for this price. BUT, the manager is too pushy and made us feel very uncomfortable in several occasions. When you arrive, he will ask you what are your plans. Not because he is curious, but because he wants you to travel with...

Warmly welcomed by the owner and his family, we spend 3 very quiet nights. Green Woods is close to the Tooth temple, it is fast to go there by walking (20 to 30 minutes). Compared to a guest house in downton, you have a nice surrounding of forest and no constant cars /buses/tuk-tuk traffic !

Peaceful guesthouse that is well-located : far enough from the buzz of the city center and near enough to go by walking if you don't want to take a tuktuk. Sarath will be your man if you need to chase the insects without killing them ;) And the monkey from the forest close-by will make your breakfast funnier !

Arrived directly from the airport (assisted by the guest house) tired and was met with great hospitality and a perfect Rice and curry. We stayed three nights and returned after a trip north for a second stay. Both times were the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast good and the view over the green forest fantastic.

Breakfast was included and was good. The rooms were comfortable but slightly damp. The warm shower ran out of water with four of us but was nice while it lasted. However, the owner enforced a 10pm curfew which was not advertised or explained whilst booking or we would have stayed elsewhere. He was also very pushy when trying to make...

Green Woods was recommended to us by our driver who was aware that we were on a budget. I think we may have miscommunicated somewhere along the line however as we weren't looking for anything this basic. The guest house is located a short tuk-tuk ride from the city centre but has stunning views of the forest. The rooms are...
