Essence Hanoi Hotel & SpaA lilliputian property on a busy Old Quarter street, Essence has an unassuming entrance that gives it the appearance of a breezy clothing boutique, making it fit right into the surroundings. Neighbors are jewelry stores, cafés, bars, clothing shops, and minimarts. Opened in late 2011, the eight-story hotel was completely renovated in 2017. The stylish rooms are well-appointed (quality down bedding, wood floors, writing desks with laptops and reliable Wi-Fi, even electric kettles) and decently soundproofed. 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). Amenities in the room include fresh seasonal fruit such as mango, papaya, and pineapple, and complimentary mini-bar snacks, which are restocked daily.
