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... More

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. Situated close go the... More

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... More

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... More

We received a hostile welcome when we arrive at this guest house. The owner got irate at our bid to barter the price down a bit. Room was slightly overpriced but fine apart from that but there was no luxury for the extra paid. Could see monkeys on balcony.

we were very disappointed with this place as it had been recommended by lonely planet. The host was very rude and hostel, the pillows had mould in them, and it is very far away from anything. The rooms are very basic for what you pay. The only good things were the views and the monkeys, but these are all over... More

You need to be on a budget or not mind quite basic locations because rooms are nothing special and quite next to the larger hall where someone could wake you up if getting in/out in the middle of the night. Apart from that it is in walking distance to the tooth and some nice pubs/restaurants and the view into the... More
