The staff at the hotel is also very friendly and helpful. I can only recommend this room to any traveller! Don't look further, this is the place where you'll have a great stay.

  • We had a wonderful stay at the Especen Hotel in Hanoi. The room was lovely and clean. Our host was beyond helpful with organising our tickets for our train down to Nha Trang, a day trip to the stunning Ha Long Bay, as well as helpful advise on where to eat and exchange our US dollars. I would highly recommend a stay at the Especen hotel, truly in the heart of the city and I would love to stay again.

    Response from Thanh:

    Thanks so much my friend! Hope you will be back to Hanoi again.

  • First the good: a quiet place in the heart city... and now everything else: very arrogant staff: where thank you and goodbye! - I don't know...all rough! My bed was only with sheet, staff said that all is far! If you had to stop, never take a trips, you'll lose about 10-30% - staff have a payment! I lol, because learned just now..(((

  • Especen is an excellent location at a really good price. Right near the cathedral and an easy walk to the lake and loads of other stuff you want to see. It is also super clean. The internet can be a bit spotty and the hot water doesn't last long but I would still recommend this place. Staff are good at organizing other tours out to halong bay as well.

About
Hello ! My name is Tran Hoai Thanh! I was born in Ha Long city & now I live in Hanoi, Vietnam. I work for Government in day time. Hotel & travel is my home business. Since 1990s, my father open the first mini hotel in Hanoi named Especen hotel in order to have place to relax with his friends in gamble :). My daddy die in 2003 and I continue to run Especen hotel then. Now I own both Especen hotel & Hanoi Hibiscus hotel. Both of them are located in the central of Hanoi old street quarter, It is just a stone’s throw from St. Joseph's Church (Cathedral) on quiet Tho Xuong street. This convenient location allows you to be just a 5 minute walk from Hoan Kiem Lake, Vietnam Airlines booking office & Quang Trung bus stop (for service to Noi Bai International airport). You can get to all the famous travel points, restaurants (all European, Asia and famous traditional Vietnamese restaurants), craft shops, pubs and art galleries,... as soon as you step on to the main road. My Especen hotel was listed on almost famous travel guide books: Lonely Planet, Petit Futé, Rough guide, Michellin, Insight guide, John Benjamin,... as the best budget hotel in Hanoi for over 20 years. The Petit Futé guidebook describes my Especen hotel as: "A small hotel nestled in the maze of streets that surround the Cathedral. Wake to the sound of bells and a panoramic view of Hanoi rooftops ocher" (Petit hôtel niché dans le lacis des ruelles qui enserrent la cathédrale. Réveil au son des cloches et vue panoramique sur les toits ocre de Hanoi). In an adventure book name "The House on Dream Street: Memoir of an American Woman in Vietnam" the writer said that: "... I caught the familiar sounds of "Green Bamboo;" "Especen," and "Darling Café;" Hanoi's most well known hubs for low-budget travelers. My Especen hotel also is a favor hotel of many photographers, Vietnamese singers & artist. Doing business in hotel & travel is my hobbies, I will make my hotel to be a great hotel as a present to my dad.
