8/10 Very good

Good spot in the Old Town
Busy location but minimal noise disturbance at night - at least from the street...air con unit was very noisy and had limited effectiveness. Room comfortable for the most part - one narrow window with views of a all and rooftops mainly. Extremely helpful staff on reception - especially Johnny + Rick. Good breakfast and excellent restaurant staff.

Hotel is nicely located in the heart of Old Quarters; nightlife spots are all a stone’s throw away. We booked a Sapa tour through the hotel which was a fantastic experience. The logistics and transport for the tour were all taken care of properly. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Pleasant hotel in the Old Quarter of Hanoi
The Essence d'Orient is a pleasant hotel in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Staff are warm and friendly. It's not too pricey despite the good location, but there are lots of little cozy touches -- welcome drinks and fruit, tastefully styled room, and even a laptop in the room to borrow. I only stayed for one night during a business trip, but the hotel upgraded me to a room with a better city view. Very pleasant hotel with some character!

Pricing itself out of the market?
Second stay at Essence. Still great location and service but price is getting a bit uncompetitive with similar hotels.

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.
