Fantastic location- right in the old quarter. And the rooms were very nice as well, it didn't matter what side of the hotel we were on, you couldn't hear the noise outside. Te staff were really helpful and lovely. Would definitely recommend this lovely hotel.

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our Vietnam trip. It's a perfect location right in the centre of the Old Quarter - great for food stalls, restaurants and bars. Despite the fantastic, Central location the hotel rooms were quiet. The rooms are extremely clean and I think luxurious for the price. The breakfast... More

Great hotel, perfect location (next to beer corner), the staff were very helpful and arranged airport transfer both to Hanoi airport and then from the next airport to our next hotel as well at good prices. Breakfast was the best I've had in Vietnam, both a buffet and a menu to choose items from. We travelled to Sapa and back... More

Our family of 5 stayed at this hotel during our 3 night stay in Hoi An. We booked the Deluxe Family Connecting Room with Balcony. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hotel grounds were also very nice. My kids enjoyed the using the pool. Also, the breakfast buffet in the morning was great with so much variety. We... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2015 and were delighted with this hotel and the service. The rooms were very quiet (at the back of the hotel), quiet, free Wifi, everything we needed. We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent as was the service. The staff could not have done more to make us... More

After a month of travels in SE Asia, the Essence Hotel and Spa is our #1 hotel for service, attentiveness and comfort. We booked the Halong Bay Cruise Package through the hotel which I highly recommend, as there are some real rust buckets on the Bay that look great online. The hotel had to change our cruise date by one... More

The staff are extremely helpful, they basically arranged half the tickets of our travel, arranged pickup rides and transfers etc for small sum, very helpful. Free wifi good buffet breakfast. The location is excellent for seeing the old town and street life. Although the restaurant is highly rated it was more interesting to eat out in the immediate vicinity which... More

My husband, friends and I stayed at the Essence Hotel for 3 days in March. This hotel is a great hotel with great staff and in a perfect central location. The hotel is located in the craziness of the old town but the hotel is very quiet. The staff is very nice, helpful and make you feel welcomed. The breakfast... More

I am notoriously 'picky' when it comes to hotel accommodation (just ask my spouse)... However, I can without reservation recommend the Essence Hanoi Hotel. We had the opportunity to get to know the wonderful staff (we stayed there for 2 weeks in June 2014); everyone was genuinely friendly, professional, and helpful. We were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations and restaurant... More

The staff at the hotel were all outstanding! They could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The configuration of the hotel is a bit odd. There are two separate elevators and seemed to be two building hooked together. To reach our room we needed to walk through the dining room and up a few stairs or enter through a... More
