Essence d'Orient Hotel & Spa, Hanoi
The hotel is conveniently located in close proximity to bars, restaurants, cafes and shops. The staffs at the hotel were super friendly and helpful. During our stay, the hotel had a spa promotion of buy one get one free spa from 1 ~ 4 PM, and we booked the romance package. It was a great deal and the spa staff demonstrated great skills. Highly recommend it! All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Essence Hotel.

Run, don't walk to this bargain boutique hotel !!
This hotel is WAY under the radar and needs to be recognized- it was, hands down, the most luxurious stay I have ever had, around the world, and I've travelled to the best. We immediately cancelled our future reservations and spent a blissful 3 days in the heart of Hanoi, all the while treated to professional, personalized care. Staff knew us, anticipated our needs, had one of the top 10 restaurants in the city, a restful spa, and easy transfers to any type of transportation we desired. RUN, don't walk to this hidden gem!!

Essentially Fantastic
All hotel staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. From front desk to restaurant, the service was stellar. Do try the spa. There's many choices for spa services nearby, but the Essence Spa is by far the cleanest and most professional. Worth the price. Their restaurant also has some of the best food I had in Hanoi. The location is great. Short, easy walk to Hoan Kiem Lake. On the weekend, the streets by the hotel are closed for a sort of night market of restaurants and bars. It's loud and chaotic, but I couldn't hear any of it from my room. Overall, fantastic stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Hanoi.
