We stayed at the Essence for 3 nights at the end of a 4 centre tour of Vietnam, we had a really warm welcome and the staff were superb. We had a room on the 9th floor that gave the most fabulous view of the rooftops of Hanoi, the photo I took of the view got more comments on Facebook... More

Around 4 pm the sidewalks start to become... More

The staff will do everything to see to that your stay is unforgettable. We spent 5 nights there in the beginning of february and enjoyed every second. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful. We dined one night as well, and we were certainly not disappointed. The rooms are great and kep immaculately clean.

We stayed here for a total of five nights split by a trip to Halong Bay. Just superb from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Great room with a balcony overlooking the hubbub of Hanoi streets in the Old Quarter. The hotel will arrange trips if you desire or leave you in peace if that's your thing... More

We booked a package with the essence hotel including a halong bay trip. The hotel room and location was great and the chosen tour company for halong bay for excellent. The added massage was a brilliant addition.
