Essence is located in the Old Quarter, very busy, lots of street stalls and crazy scooter traffic. Great hotel - clean, quiet, very service oriented staff. Buffet breakfast was included in our rate and was excellent - fresh fruit, breads, juices plus interesting Vietnamese offerings. Staff called taxis for us, called ahead to next hotel to arrange transport, booked restaurants... More

The Essence was a very nice end to our Vietnam trip. You can't beat the location and the room was very nice. We can't say enough about the staff, they were so pleasant, polite and professional. They went above and beyond to make our Hanoi visit wonderful.

Had a fantastic couple of nights at the Essence Hotel in Hanoi. Great start to our honeymoon. The receptionists were all very friendly and looked for many ways to make our stay extra special. Enjoyed our stay.

Before staying at the Essence Hanoi Hotel and Spa for a four night stay, I read the previous reviews about how good the staff is/was. Our experience with the staff would also show an excellent rating. From the first moment at check in to check out, the whole staff seemed to know our names. Even staff members that I previously...

This small boutique hotel provided a welcome oasis from the heat and noise of the old quarter in August. The reception is efficiently air conditioned and you are welcomed with drinks. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was included and offered one of the best selections I've had. It was... More

Great resort if you like resorts. Great rooms and facilities as a base if you dont like resorts, take the bikes and venture out. Staff are very helpful and go out of their way to please. Not inexpensive for Vietnam.

The hotel was centrally located in old quarter right next to the infamous Hanoi beer street. The rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We also got a basket of welcome fruits in our rooms when we arrived. We booked a superior room and a deluxe window room. As you could guess from the description, only the superior room had... More
