We stayed two nights at the hotel and wish it could have been more. The staff are quite wonderful and learned our names quickly. They make this hotel terrific. The rooms are large and comfortable. Ask for a street-side room. Internet and cable TV work well, but carry neither Bloomberg or CNBC. The shower is very good. The hotel is...

This is a fabulous hotel smack bang in the centre of the Old Quarter, on a bustling street near the crossroads of eateries. I also stayed at the sister hotel, Essence Palace, which is equally as good and on a slightly quieter street. All of the staff are fabulous and so helpful. The rooms were immaculately clean and very spacious...

Stayed here for four nights. Our room was more spacious than previous hotels in Hanoi- but a little dearer than we had paid previously. Room clean with an internal window which could be opened for fresh air. Did not hear street noise at all, but could sometimes just hear people in other rooms. Location is good - NB if you...

This hotel is just wonderful. The rooms are very large and clean, great shower and most of all VERY QUIET. I'm not sure how they did this considering its right in old town with very congested traffic and late night parties.. The hotel staff is happy to assist in any matter, and will help airport transfers without a problem. When...

Our stay at Essence Hanoi was for three separate nights in between trips to Sapa and Halong then home to Australia. Each time we stepped through the doors we were greeted like old friends, welcomed home. What a beautiful place, comfortable, serene, clean and fresh. My teenage kids loved it as it offered relief and relaxation after a day traveling...

Highly recommended. When we arrived they took the time to talk us through the best ways to get around, local customs and answered all of our questions. Breakfast was fantastic, room was very comfortable and the location was very convenient. You can walk everywhere and there are some great restaurants nearby.

We stayed at the Essence Hotel and Spa over the Tet holiday. It is in a great location in the old quarter of Hanoi in easy walking distance from many attractions. The hotel restaurant has wonderful food and all the staff are so friendly and helpful. Most speak excellent English.

In the middle of the very busy old quarter. Lovely welcome and helpful staff. Clean rooms, great bathrooms. Safe in room. Laundry service was good. Only negative was the additional bed which was hard, main beds were good.
