This hotel has made our first stay in Hanoi even more pleasurable. Although it's situated in the heart of the old quarters, the service of the people in this hotel has been superb. The doormen were exceptionally helpful and the workers were also very proactive in giving us extra information about the area and also telling us things to take... More

After enjoying some really great hotels from Saigon to Hanoi, we were lucky to choose Essence by chance. We were exiting the airport and there was a driver waiting for someone else. We spoke to him and he agreed to take us to the hotel so we could see it. On arrival, the reception was warm and welcoming. They showed... More

This is an exceptional hotel - the rooms are very nice, clean, right in the midst of the Old Quarter... and the service is unsurpassed. Everyone at the hotel was absolutely wonderful, each one with a beaming smile from the minute you walk in the door, helping you to feel as though you've come to visit friends. The staff helped...

It's all been said by previous reviewers, but I'll add my praise for this little hotel. I had originally booked it for two nights and planned to switch to the Metropole for our remaining two nights after a Halong Bay overnight cruise. But at the suggestion of my husband (normally a hotel snob) we ended up canceling the switch our... More

From start to finish this hotel lives up to its 5 star reviews. We arrived from the UK very tired and travel weary at around 9am expecting to have to ask very nicely if we could leave our bags and come back to check in at the correct time much later in the afternoon, instead we were ushered to take...

If you want to plunge into the center of the noise and seeming chaos in the old town of Hanoi (an area not to be missed) it is literally on the doorstep of this modest hotel. Once you step inside it is quiet, clean and cool. The staff are lovely, attentive and helpful in every way. Being in the old... More

What a great hotel in the middle of Old Town Hanoi. The rooms were very clean , modern, and comfortable, but, the staff here were second to none in making us feel at home . All of the staff was super friendly and so helpful. I loved staying here.

We stayed for a couple of nights at the beginning of our adventure in Vietnam and were delighted with this hotel. The room and facilities were excellent, the staff incredibly helpful and the breakfast was fantastic. Also important is the hotel's location right in the Old Town - making everything easily accessible on foot. We found while the traffic chaos... More
