Essence Hanoi Hotel

Great location, elegantly simple rooms with a Vietnamese touch, and an obsession with service are the hallmarks of this property, which, despite its small size, offers most of the services of a five-star hotel. Surrounded by the buzz of Hanoi's Old Quarter, the Essence Hanoi Hotel has built a reputation as one of the city's top boutique hotels. Suites include a complimentary minibar and laundry service.



Make yourself at home in one of the 29 air-conditioned rooms. Rooms come mostly in white, enlivened by splashes of color in the bed throws and upholstery and feature a free laptop for guest use; Wi-Fi is also complimentary. The setup of the rooms is refreshingly straightforward-a down bed; an armchair or chaise longue; a handful of small framed photos; and a desk with a lamp in the living space. It’s a relaxed, informal, playful property, where turndown service includes flower petals sprinkled on the bed, and towels are folded into the shapes of animals (swans are a favorite). Welcome amenities in the room include fresh seasonal fruit such as mango, papaya, and pineapple.
