My husband and I stayed at Green Life in Hoi An about a month ago and found it an extremely pleasant and accomodating hotel; the large room we had was carefully and pleasingly designed and was appropriate for either a hotel-type visit (as ours was) or a longer self-catering one. There were a couple of technical problems (e.g. with hot water) at the beginning of our stay, but the kindly Mr. Dung made all the necessary repairs/adjustments very very promptly and we had no further problems. He and the staff were very helpful and answered our many questions. The hotel is situated very conveniently halfway between the lovely town of Hoi An and the beautiful beaches in the other direction. The walk into town is no more than a comfortable 20 minutes and they provided bicycles for a 15 to 20 minute ride to the beach (depending on your age and strength--we are seniors!); they even lent us plastic raincoats at one point! The breakfasts were hearty and delicious--and they were sometimes western food and sometimes Vietnamese, though they accomodated me once when I had some gut issues by giving me a special breakfast. On nice days, breakfast on the terrace was a special treat - with a view of rice paddies, birds, etc.
Mr. Dung collected us at the airport and also drove us to our hotel in Hue at the end of our stay, for very reasonable fees; in fact, he even paid a bribe extorted at a road check (for no good reason) to get us to our destination, and was extremely reluctant even to accept partial repayment from us. We highly recommend Greenlife for travellers in Vietnam.
