Essence Hanoi Hotel reviews

7.2 Good

The hotel was fine - I came with high expectations after reading previous reviews, but was not overwhelmed. This is a good 3 star hotel, but this corner of the market is very hotly contested in Han Noi. I stayed in a similar hotel in the old quarter for half the price two weeks ago - the rooms were a little smaller and there was no welcome drink, but otherwise there was very little extra to justify twice the price at Essence. The same internal windows, identical breakfast, the same well-meaning but almost intrusive service. I did like the fact there was a bath in the bathroom at Esseence, but didn't like that there were no security latches on the doors in the rooms. Room service at Essence was very prompt and food was fine, but again there is no way that the restaurant deserves the "number 1 restaurant in Hanoi" ranking on Trip Advisor. The fact that another hotel in the same chain shares the number 2 restaurant position makes me think that these guys are rigging the reviews somehow. In summary, a perfectly good 3 str hotel, but there are many hotels just like this in Hanoi's old quarter, which are proberly better value for money.

Excellent hotel with friendly and competent staff. Given the price and service received it is good value for money. Only real area of improvement is the quality and speed of the WiFi in the room - in short: Useless. This makes it very hard to accept as a business hotel.

We had a room with a small balcony over-looking the street below. It was fascinating to sit there, sipping the complimentary wine and watch all the activity on the street. Buying, selling, eating, shaving and hair-cutting, all took place out on the side-walk or the street (depending on the number of motor scooters parked on the side-walk)and the remaining space available. There are shops, stalls, good restaurants and markets, all within easy walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

Our stay was only 3 days, but the staff made us very welcome and nothing was a bother. We would go there again and recommend highly.
