Thanh is an exceptionally responsive host. I left my suit in the car that took us to the airport and he called the driver and he brought it to me. The driver did drop us off at the wrong terminal but bringing the suit back before our flight more than made up for the inconvenience.
We never actually met Thanh but the staff at The Especen Hotel was extremely helpful when we arrived at the hotel. We appreciate the fact that Thanh arranged transport for us from the airport when we arrived. The Escpecen Hotel is located in a great neighborhood close to the lake and almost everything. The bed was very comfortable which is real important when traveling as well as the pillows. The Escpecen offers extremely good value for money. The rooms are spacious and we had a great Hanoi view over the rooftops of Hanoi. We will definitely stay here again and will highly recommend this hotel
Great service, friendly and helpful staff in a good location. Room is good value for the money.
Very comfortable hotel right outside of old town. The location was perfect as almost everything is in walking distance. We slept very well in one of the most comfortable beds we have had in Vietnam. When we return to Hanoi we would love to stay here again
It nice and clean. They helped us out with everything. Sim Cards, motor bikes...great people

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.
My Especen hotel 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.
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.
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.
