The staff here are excellent, the hotel is beautiful, immaculate & peaceful, then you step out the door into the hustle & bustle of Hanoi & you're so close to everything. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Another bonus is the ATM right at front door.

The location of this hotel is impeccable. It is located in the middle of the Ta Hien beer street. This means that the area around the hotel is bustling with activity over the weekend nights. The energy was really fantastic! Despite the bustle, my room was insulated from street noise. No problems sleeping at all. The room was clean, modern...

Our 3rd time in Hoi An and 3rd time at Essence. It was much bigger this time with their new wing and pool open. This improved things greatly as it was always possible to find quiet time at one of the pools. It is a beautifully designed hotel. The service, as always, was outstanding, especially from the very sweet Emma....

This is a great little hotel right in the midst of the old quarter. We had 2 adjoining rooms for our family of five which was brilliant. Breakfast was included which was excellent and catered for our more adventurous and fussy eaters!

we were on the high floor and not on the street side, so noise was okay except for some rooster that crowed at 4am from somewhere near on the off-street side. We had one of the essence suite double rooms. Spacious enough. the mini bar is free, as is laundry and that was nice. Wifi was okay. Breakfast also okay....

We stayed in the Essence Hotel for a week with a child and an infant. It was our first trip to Hanoi and this hotel is right in a busy section of the Old Quarter. It is somewhat daunting to navigate with kids at first because of the business, but its so close to everything that you can walk and...
