The hotel is in a convenient location. Staffs are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well maintained. We only stayed one night here but found that the hotel was cosy. The restaurant served good food for dinner and their breakfast selection was great too!

We stayed here for 4 nights but were based for the week in between Sapa and Halong Bay visits. We chose the week deal that included our Sapa & Halong Bay trips - the hotel organised it all. The hotel accommodated all our requests and transfers and couldn't have been more professional, friendly and helpful with their service. Rooms -... More

It was a nice break of pace from street food in Hanoi. Five star service and food with really good ambience. Though slightly pricey compared to the other restaurants, its absolutely worth it!!The fresh spring rolls were really yummmm.....Would love to go again!!!

This was our second stay at the Essence, 5 years after our first. The hotel impressed us all over again with great facilities, great location and excellent staff. It remains an oasis of calm in the heart of the Old Quarter.

It is not surprising this quaint and lovely hotel in the heart of the Old Quarter has an almost perfect rating. The attentiveness makes this hotel the best I've stayed at in the last two months of traveling SE Asia.

We choose this hotel for the location and the family room (we stayed 4 nights). We were not disappointed. The location is great ; close to restaurant, 5-10 mins walk to the lake and attractions, easy to get a cab and an interesting experience walking in the Old Quarter! We took the option with the full breakfast. The choice is... More
