Spent 5 nights in this wonderful hotel located along Ta Hien street in the old quarter. Just loved exploring the old quarter with its narrow streets and buildings of old. The transformation of Ta Hien street from day to evening to night is just unbelievable. Words just can't describe it. The location is great, walking distance to many attractions and... More

A very warm and welcoming hotel. We were given our rooms immediately upon arrival. Best part about the hotel - location! It's in the old quarter where all the buzz and life is. The hotel is surrounded with many many shops and small cafes and restaurants and is just walking distance from the Ho Kiem lake. The night market is... More

This is well situated for the old town. The staff give you a lovely welcome. The rooms are a good size for a city centre hotel, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. The hotel restaurant is good and there's plenty of choice on the menu. The breakfast buffet is very good with plenty of choice and hot food prepared to order.... More

We stayed at the Essence Hanoi for 4 nights. The location is great, right in the middle of the old quarter, close to all of the major sights. The staff at the hotel were outstanding. They waited for us with the keys, helped us make arrangements, provide recommendations and it was a pleasure to say hello to them every time... More

Stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend on what we called our "hotel tour of Hanoi." We stayed in 3 hotels over the course of our 4 night trip and Essence was by far the best. We stayed in the a junior suite with a beautiful view and the most comfortable cloud-like bed. The bathroom was beautiful and the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while we were in Vietnam. We couldn't have asked for a better location. It was right in the middle of everything the city had to offer. There were a lot of great little shops and places to eat around the hotel. The hotel offered breakfast, which was to die for! The spa here was... More

We stayed here for two nights at the start of our Vietnam trip and could not have asked for a better situated hotel to explore Hanoi's Old Quarter. It is literally on 'beer corner' which at weekends is a pedestrianised crossroads where locals and tourists sit out eating and drinking. Hotel itself is pleasant with everything you'd expect from a... More

We spent 2 nights here at the end of a 3 week period traveling around Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. The staff at this hotel was the most attentive of anywhere on our entire trip. They make sure you never have an unanswered question. The breakfast was tasty and nice that they start at 6:30am. The rooms are comfortable, great hot... More
