You can get to all the famous travel points, restaurants, craft shops, pubs and art galleries,... as soon as you step on to the main road.

Especen hotel offers affordable, clean accommodation in an authentic Vietnamese neighborhood. Private room with ensuite bathrooms, hair dryer, large flat screen cable TV. Wifi internet and local phone call free of charge.

Hotel services: currency exchange, laundry, ticking desk and tour information.

Especen hotel was picked by many guidebooks as Lonely Planet, Petit Futé, Rough guide, Michellin, Footh Print... The Petit Futé guidebook describes our 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..."
