We only stayed for one night but we were really looked after Kev on front desk was very helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. The room we stayed in was really good and comfortable.

In the middle of the craziness that is Hanoi's Old Quarter, Essence Hanoi Hotel is surprisingly quiet, well located, and beautifully appointed. The staff is smiley and helpful, the breakfast is filling. Perfect!

We stayed here for 5 nights in July and can't speak highly enough about the excellent facilities, ambience, location and staff at this wonderful hotel. The service was exemplary and it's such a steal at the price. Every detail of our itinerary was perfect. The staff arranged trecking in Sapa and a night on Halong Bay. On each occasion a...

Very good place to stay! We were entirely satisfied of the quality of accommodation, service and food. The breakfast is delicious with home-made caramel and yogurt. The room was very clean, with a bath that I didn't hesitate to use (which is quite rare for me in hotels). The personnel is very attentive to your needs. Accueil royal :)

My partner and I spent four nights at the Essence Hotel over a period of eight days, with some side trips in between, and it was a first-class experience. If you put this hotel in Europe, I don't think we would have been able to afford it! We organised a transfer from the airport, which was waiting for us on...

This place was so cozy. It is down a private drive/alley, but don't let that turn you off. That keeps things quiet for you and easy for you to access the main streets. My room was beautiful! I had a balcony, and all of the amenities that I would be expecting in any 4 star hotel. The staff was great!...

So we chose this hotel purely on location and ratings and could not be happier with our choice. From the moment we made our booking the hotel took on the role of host and guided us through all our queries, quickly and efficiently. We were met at the airport, greeted at the hotel, given a full run down of our...
