We stayed for two nights as a family in an interconnecting family room and had a lovely time. The staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Couldn't have been happier with this hotel. We had a deluxe city view room on the 8th floor which was very comfortable and quiet. Great breakfast, customer service and location in the old quarter. Don't miss the delicious coffee, mangos and passion fruit at breakfast!

I decided to have dinner with my sisters in here after having a look at the menu outside. We absolutely loved our meals and the service was outstanding! I'll definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone who ask me about my trip to Vietnam!

Before I book Essence Hanoi hotel, I was quite sceptical about the number of good reviews the hotel has in trip advisor. I have not seen a recommended place with 2000 over reviews with over 90% reviewers rated as excellent. I decided to give it a try. The hotel is located at the heart of old quarters. The street is...

The Hotel is very nicely and conveniently located in Hanoi's old town and something like 5 minutes walk from the Hoan Kiem lake. Rooms are very nice (we had two different ones) and equipped as you would expect them to be....

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.

This hotel is located in a great location right in the middle of the Old Quarter. The rooms were modern and comfortable. They provided complimentary water bottles every day which was needed for walking around the city during a hot days. Even though it is in the middle of the very busy and noisy Old Quarter, we did not here...

We stayed several times using this hotel as a base for visits to SaPa and Ha Long Bay. Thanks so much for your advice when we needed to find medical help, taxis, airport transport etc - they go the extra mile - must be the best stay in Hanoi, great location, great rooms, great service.

The staff at this small hotel are incredibly friendly and eager to assist with any need or service you may desire! Whether it be making recommendations for local restaurants, arranging taxi transportation to the various tourist attractions, or assisting with general questions, the staff very efficiently took care of all our needs! Speaking of restaurants, the hotel has an extremely...
