expensive for so little value and bad attitude. Food not available at when we are back from the festival, room heating was not there. that too after paying 2500 for one night. Host seems less concerned about guest.
Our party of three stayed four nights at Greenwood Villa as we were told it was the closest accomodation for the Hornbill Festival. One of us got a room with a western toilet and hot water, one got a room with an Indian style toilet and hot water and one got a room with an Indian style toilet and no hot water (hot water had to be requested each morning in advance). The second room was suppied by a mop in the bathroom in order to counteract the very wet floor. There was only one sheet on the bed so future guests would be advised to bring a sleeping bag liner if they have any doubts as to how often the blankets are laundered. The weather was extremely cold and the heating is totally inadequate. A very lengthy power cut further lowered the temperature. Hot water bottles were provided but these did not counteract the chill of the rooms. There was litttle choice in the meals provided - supper is an additional payment. As far as we could tell, the rooms were never cleaned during our stay. Only the wastepaper baskets were emptied on three of the four nights.…
We stay 2 nights in Green wood villa. Our stay was comfortable and in family friendly atmosphere . One can enjoy the near by nature and villages . The Nagaland heritage village - Kisama is very nearby , Kigwema is another village is very picturesque . The owner of homestay Miss Nino is very co-operative and take care of our sightseeing .
Just wow. I went with my brother n a friend for hornbills festival in December. We booked greenwood Villa 4months prior only. The property is very well maintained. The room which was provided to us was really nice and well set. Dinner was a feast Everyday. Just a small misunderstanding at the time of breakfast early morning. As there were too many guest to stay at Homestay for hornbill and breakfast has less menu and quantity. Overall a good experience and all the staffs behaved properly and served us better.
This is 12Km. from Kohima city. Those who don't want to stay in city but enjoy hotel facility of city, for those this is the BEST HOMESTAY. Owner Ms. Nino had taken excellent care of all of us. Food was very good. For one room there is Indian style WC, so it better to inform while booking about it. I will suggest stay there and enjoy Kohima sight seeing.
We took the INR 300/ person room. It is good enough with basic amenities for back packers. However if you want a high end room, you may look out for the INR 1200 room. Amen - the in-charge was very courteous and well-networked. A happy to help person and knows the meaning of hospitality. A good idea is to connect with her and the rest of your plan will be drafted as you recommend her. We were so impressed that we cancelled our return stay at a different one and stayed at Morung lodge at Kohima run by her. The rent for the same is INR 1200/ day. Since we were vegetarians, we were also provided with food that was basic and good (INR 200/meal) which is not that easily available in kohima. Tips: Do not book for your entire trip at different places. Just book with these guys and the rest shall be taken care. Note: We didn't visit during Hornbill festival but for Dzukou valley trek.…
Close to historic Kigwema village this is one of my favourite places to stay around Kohima. Rooms are of different standards and the house has a delightful family atmosphere. It's very convenient for Hornbill but is also a good place to come in winter outside Hornbill time for trekking and exploring. Food is plentiful and excellent.
Nino Zhasa is warm welcoming knowledgable host and she runs a splendid guesthouse in her family home right next to the Hornbill Venue. With several rooms, different standards of accommodation are available, with breakfast, lunch, dinner, laundry all available plus local excursions and Nagaland information plus tours on request. This is a full service establishment which the rest of the state unfortunately lacks. Some rooms have a balcony, communal seating area is available and everyone is encourage to meet and mingle. The area is easy to reach from Kohima, fantastic location for the Hornbill (avoids all the traffic mess) and is quiet and rural. Nino is a fountain of Naga knowledge. Highly recommended, I have stayed several times in both 2013 & 2014 and will do again in 2015.…
We went to Kohima for the Hornbill festival and were booked in at the Greenwood Villa. The initial appearance was great and Nino was very welcoming. However, when we checked into our room we found ourselves in the annexe (only used during the festival) which is like a concrete cell block. The room is sparse, the supposed en suite is in fact a concrete room with a toilet, a basin and two taps sticking out of the wall with a bucket. Later we found out that there was no hot water. Also the bed was a very thin mattress on a wood base. The comfort of the place is very over stated on the web site and, while the house itself might be homely the annexe is horrible.
Cette grosse maison offre plusieurs chambres différentes avec salle de bain privative, eau chaude et quelquefois, un petit balcon. Les repas y sont excellents et l'accueil agréable. Début décembre, durant le Hornbill Festival, il faut réserver bien à l'avance. Je n'ai pu y dormir qu'une nuit mais Nino, la patronne qui parle un excellent anglais, s'est mise en quatre pour m'aider et me dénicher une autre chambre dans le coin. Pour le Hornbill Festival, justement, cet endroit est très bien placé, à 15 minutes à pied du lieu où il se déroule. Un peu loin de Kohima par contre (13 km) pour ceux qui veulent sortir le soir. Personnel attentif, endroit propre et bien entretenu. Seuls hics : pas de Wifi et le bruit de la route en-dessous, même la nuit.
