We planned a two and a half week honeymoon in Vietnam and we started and ended in Hanoi. We wanted to stay somewhere close to restaurants and shopping and Essence Hanoi was very reasonably priced and right in the middle of the Old Quarter area. This hotel was the perfect starting point for our journey. From the moment we stepped...

the service and attention to personal detail was just fantastic. The central location in the old quarter is excellent. Close to beer corner 👌😊 and really good restaurants. Pricing is fabulous and the rooms are spacious enough and contain everything you need. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Had dinner in the restaurant which is as must if...

We arrived exhausted after our flight from Amsterdam in the hotel. The staff is really friendly and the food is great. After a day in Hanoi we had dinner in the hotel (really good!) and enjoyed the evening here. The rooms are really nice and neat and the shower is great as well. Would recommend to everyone who visits Hanoi

We had the best experience at the Essence. We stayed for 5 nights in all with one night squeezed in at Halong Bay. The hotel is right in the centre of the old town, but the rooms are very cool and quiet - the perfect respite after walking the fascinating local streets. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They...

When traveling through Vietnam, Hanoi was our last stop before returning back to bkk and essence hanoi was probably the best hotel we have stayed at during the whole trip. The hotel lies in the middle of the old city, most attractions can be reached by foot. Many restaurants around. The rooms were those of a five star hotel (very...

It is almost impossible to imagine the peace and tranquility of the Essence hotel if you enter it from the busy streetlife. The hotel is an oasis of peace. It is a quiet boutique hotel with an excellent restaurant both for breakfast (included) and dinner (a la carte). The rooms are nicely laid out with a luxurious feeling. Each room...

We recently spent another 3 nights at the essence hotel in Hanoi as we were so impressed with the service on our first visit back in 2013. The service was once again excellent and the location is great, only a short walk to all the main spots. If we ever return to Hanoi this will definitely be our hotel of...

We stayed at the hotel for just 1 day. But the moment we reached we got a room upgrade and ther service just continued to go uphill. Very very friendly staff and the restaurant served amazing food as well. It's location right in the middle of the old quarters makes it a must stay!

Lovely service - the staff here went out of their way to help us out with every small request. Also - they have a very good restaurant with awesome Vietnamese - likely the best in town. Also very centrally located - you step out and there's a party in the old quarter! Do stay here!
