Stayed here for two nights and upon arrival, with there being a street party happening (this party is most nights) I was a tad concerned about not getting any sleep, however, I was soon reassured by the staff that the rooms are quiet and true to their word they were - the hotel is very clean and well managed and...

My wife and I have travelled the world for the last 40 years. In the process, we have stayed in all sorts of hotels good and bad. However, we have NEVER stayed in an all around outstanding hotel as the Essence. The rooms were nice and clean (we had a junior suite), reasonably priced, the food served in their restaurant...

The location is convenient, in the Old Quarter. Walking distance from Hoan Kiem lake, cafes, shops etc. Be warned that the pavements are cobbled and narrow. Difficult for elderly people to walk. Watch out for traffic! On weekends, the streets are very busy, as there's an evening weekend market nearby. While the street outside the hotel is busy with vehicles...

The hotel has a relaxed elegance at an excellent price. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was extensive, and they made fresh pho soup on request. Staff are charming and helpful. The hotel is right in the craziness of the Old Quarter, but you'd never know it when you step inside. The restaurant served excellent and well-priced...

We loved this small hotel so much we took our friends with us on our second visit to Hanoi. They loved it too. It is situated in the Old Quarter of Hanoi and within walking distance to most attractions and restaurants including an ATM out the front. The street is closed off to traffic on the weekend nights making it...

We had three nights here and it is in the historic centre which is where as tourists one wants to be. It looks tiny from the outside and rather unprepossessing but inside it is great. We had a very quiet double room with blissfully comfortable bed and pillows. Breakfast was excellent- plenty of choice. Even if you have the full...

The staff were so lovely and...

My daughter and I had an amazing scrub and massage. Everyone was friendly. We then had dinner at the restaurant. Great food and priced well. We would highly recommend both the restaurant and spa. I would stay at this hotel next time.
