5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed 5 nights for cost of 4 in March. The staff are excellent service for check in as well as the porters service was fast and easy. We stayed on the 5 floor looking out to the road and rice paddies, with some concern of road noise at night. But when the double doors were shut you could not hear... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and don't have a word to say against it. Beautiful, clean rooms, impeccable service, lovely pool and good food. The staff were incredibly accommodating, as we were a group of six we asked them to make a dinner reservation for us at a local restaurant each night - which they did promptly and without any...

We had a wonderful experience at the Essence hotel & spa and can't wait to go back! The staff were always willing to help and were very friendly. We loved the complimentary bikes provided by the hotel and it was quick zip into town. Our room had a beautiful view of the rice paddies and I loved the decor of... More

We fell in love with Hoi An and stayed longer then planned. We couldn't think of a better place to stay, we felt at home at Essence and soooo relaxed. It is the perfect distance from the old town. The restaurant is great and the spa is well priced.

A new hotel, about a mile from the ancient centre of Hoi An (10 minute cycle ride, 20 minute walk or a couple of dollars in a cab) with lovely rooms, great amenities and brilliant service. As we were staying for 5 nights we indulged ourselves with an Essence Suite - a huge room with every conceivable amenity, including a... More

This hotel exceeded all expectations, the staff were absolutely fantastic. The shop next door is also really good for laundry. My only criticism would be that they should put people travelling with children on the same floor so not to disturb other guests.

A lovely hotel with all one could want to escape the busy streets of Hoi An. We were lucky to have 10 nights at this beautiful place, the interconnecting room was perfect for our 2 kids with enough room for us to have space and privacy. Our 2 year old got sick during our stay within 15 minutes of notifying... More

My partner and I stayed here for five nights and loved it. The staff are so helpful and the customer service has been second to none. Nothing has been too much trouble. It is quietly located a short walk in to the old town but also offers free bicycle hire and regular shuttle buses to town and the beach. The... More

wonderful oasis in Hoi An. We generally caught a taxi to old town as shuttle was not always available but this is not an issue as its only $1-2. Great pool area with attentive service if you need drinks or food. Apart from daily breakfasts which were perfect we also had dinner in the restaurant and all dishes were great.... More
