My wife and I stayed at the Essence Hotel for 2 nights and had a great experience. We emailed the hotel to pick us up from the airport for an additional fee which they were happy to do which meant less stress for us. The driver was waiting for us with a sign with our names on and promptly showed...

Fantastic stay in Hanoi. The staff was amazing and superfriendly. Life was easy there: from the airport pickup to a day tour away from the city. Not to miss: the restaurant. All was well worth the money.

What a tremendous value. Very clean and well designed hotel. The staff was excellent too. Good location on a very lively street. The hotel restaurant breakfast buffet was tasty and reasonably priced. We took the street food tour thru the hotel which was a lot of fun but I'd only recommend it for adventurous eaters.

We are a mother & daughter traveling from Australia and had the sheer pleasure of staying in Essence in Hanoi. We booked most things with them. Airport transfers, VOA, Sapa Tour, street food tour, Hanoi tour. They are 100% reliable & the staff pride themselves in going above and beyond. For example, staff member, Stephen loaned me his personal iPhone...

The Essence Hanoi was our first hotel in Vietnam and it has set the standard for our holiday. We were warmly greeted and our room covered in rose petals to welcome us for our honeymoon, what a nice touch! The food was delicious and we enjoyed many treats at breakfast with a warm smile and speedy service. What was exceptional...

In the middle of the craziness that is Hanoi's Old Quarter, Essence Hanoi Hotel is surprisingly quiet, well located, and beautifully appointed. The staff is smiley and helpful, the breakfast is filling. Perfect!

We stayed here for 5 nights in July and can't speak highly enough about the excellent facilities, ambience, location and staff at this wonderful hotel. The service was exemplary and it's such a steal at the price. Every detail of our itinerary was perfect. The staff arranged trecking in Sapa and a night on Halong Bay. On each occasion a...

Very good place to stay! We were entirely satisfied of the quality of accommodation, service and food. The breakfast is delicious with home-made caramel and yogurt. The room was very clean, with a bath that I didn't hesitate to use (which is quite rare for me in hotels). The personnel is very attentive to your needs. Accueil royal :)
