We stayed at this hotel in 2014 and loved it. So we booked it again for 2017. It is very cozy. The rooms are decent size, and everything is very clean. There is no room noise in rooms 605 and 607 despite this hotel's proximity to the action. Great location for walking the Old Quarter and enjoying beer corner. The...

The staff were almost overwhelming at the start. We thought they might have wanted big tips or something, but they were genuinely there to help you get the most out of your stay! They were all just beautiful people to deal with, would go there again in a heartbeat. And such a pretty hotel. Rooms were a little bit pokey...

We stayed four nights at essence hotel. Rooms are lovely and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is located right in the heart of the old quarter and you can walk most places. Would come back to essence if I come back to hanoi.

We arrived to a friendly welcome, and even though we were early our room was available. The room was spacious, and had a good size bathroom. Very clean. The beds were soft and comfortable with good pillows. Air con worked well. The room had a small window that looked into a dark corner. We did request to upgrade to a...

Loved the friendly and helpful staff and location of this hotel. The buffet breakfast was delicious and the spa was amazing. I will definitely stay here again. It is located in the old quarter and night street market there is even Ginko and a chemist across the street.

This place was absolutely perfect for our trip, it was one of our favourite accommodation choices for our whole trip. The location was in the heart of the old quarter, right on the doorstep you had all the bars and restaurants and you're only a couple of minutes from the lake. So handy for getting home from the nightlife as...

This hotel was a wonderful place of rest in the bustling old quarter. With a perfect location, you step out of the hotel to enjoy the sites and sounds. When you return, you are greeted with friendly smiles, comfortable rooms, an amazing restaurant, and spa if you so desire. The concierge is very helpful and the airport transfers were prompt....

Friendly staff, clean rooms, AMAZING breakfast that is included. The restaurant is also very good if you go for lunch or dinner. It's hard to beat the value of this place and it is very close to a lot of the fun in the Old Quarter.

The breakfast buffet is wonderful with fresh fruit and western fare along with Vietnamese favorites. We chose the spa package and the massage did not disappoint. The massage rooms were spotless and nice and the massage...
