We stayed in August 2014 for 5 nights and had a great stay. The hotel is beautiful. Fab service, good little gym, great breakfasts, lovely pool. Pool area quite small and can get crowded but there are other areas in the garden to chill out in. While breakfasts are superb we'd recommend eating in town for lunches and dinners. So... More

We stayed in Hoi An as part of our honeymoon in March this year. The hotel was very nice - it has a lovely pool area outside. The room was clean, and well kept, but for some reason our room seemed slightly out of the way of the other rooms! We had chosen 'garden view' but we seemed to be... More

Just left Essence today after a 6 night stay and I just want to go back! Absolutely loved this hotel - staff were very friendly. It was lovely coming back to Essence after checking out what Hoi An has to offer. I highly recommend doing the cooking class that the hotel puts on. It includes bike riding to check out... More

You're not going to want to leave the hotel. If you do, borrow one of their bicycles. Great atmosphere and one of the best pools anywhere. Everyone was very helpful. If you have laundry I'd go across the street. A super sweet lady will wash your clothes for about half the price of the hotel.

We stayed at the Essence, Hoi An for 12 Nights. We initially booked another place, but as it wasn't what we expected we headed straight to Essence where we had previously stayed a year ago. It was the best decision we made. We felt at home straight away. Because we were returning guests we got a great deal on the... More

We booked this hotel because of the many positive feedbacks on Tripadivisor. And we certainly were not disapointed..This was a very charming hotel.Staffs were very professional and friendly.Rooms were very clean.We loved the pool.and the beers were cold.Prices of the rooms very reasonable. If we come back to Hoi An and we definitely stay in Essence again.

We had 2 interconnecting rooms on the second floor of the new wing. pleasantly kitted out, fruit on arrival, nice decor. We chose this hotel, knowing it had a pool and we would want to relax around it during the hot afternoons. However, since the build of the new wing, there is no longer enough space and sunloungers for the... More
