“Escapade in Hoi An @ Essence & La Siesta”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Had not expected to feel so much at home with the wonderful front-office and F&B team and of course, the best GRM I have ever met, Ms Vanessa Weiss.

Had not expected to experience the wonderful spa and wellness treatment that was wonderfully delivered by the ladies at La Siesta!

My stay was so perfect that I'm gonna come back......hopefully soon!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the paddy fields! Though, when I was there, it was turning yellow, I can imagine Spring...

My husband and I traveled to Hoi An with our two kids (10 mos old girl / 5 year old boy) and my sister and brother and law. We were hot and tired when we arrived at the hotel and being greeted with cold hand towels and passion fruit juice was perfect and just what we needed. The staff took great care of us while we were there. The baby crib was great, the rooms were very nice, and bathrooms were perfect. The breakfast was SO good every morning and the staff took great care of us with special orders. We loved the pool as well! Short (10 min) walk into the old city with LOTS of good lunch/dinner options. Shuttle at certain times to beach and old city as well. Overall, we could not have asked for a better experience and will definitely stay again if we make it back to Hoi An.

Five of us stayed in three rooms for three nights and all of us raved about this boutique hotel. It was warm, the rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The breakfast was delightful, with a good balance between local and Western dishes. Service was excellent with staff very helpful and attentive. Front office staff were equally helpful and gave us several recommendations on where to eat in the old town. Location was good, away from the hustle and bustle of town yet not too far to walk, an easy 15 minutes walk to old town. We have recommended this hotel to many friends who are intending to visit Hoi An and will stay here again when we next visit Hoi An.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing rice paid fields.

This really is a nice hotel. Forget the fact it is a bit out of Hoi An, because the distance is negligeable (one dollar taxi rides!!). The staff is very friendly and helpfull, the pool is fantastic and the breakfast is a feast (yet different every day!). They provide free bikes you can use to cycle to town (5 min ride), the country-side, or even to the beach! They also have a free shuttle to Cau Dai beach, which is wonderfull. In fact, the beach has a fantastic service because once you get there you get a free chaise longe and shade ;)
I definitly recommend this hotel if you're staying in Hoi An!

My family has stayed in connecting rooms on the fifth floor, which has been perfect. From the moment we entered and saw the beautiful array of silk lanterns dangling from the ceiling we knew we were somewhere special! The rooms are spacious and attractive, with a lovely basket of complimentary fruit, water, tea and coffee making facilities. The beds are large and comfy. The bathroom is quite unique, and modern. The balcony looks out over the pool and surrounding rice paddies. There are games like snooker and fuseball in the garden, as well as a lovely selection of day beds, swings and sun loungers around the pool. The breakfast offers a great spread of fruit, donuts, pancakes, omlette, yogurt, toasts, spring rolls, congee, juices, and more! We used the hotel bikes to go into town, a very fun way to get around. I re commend taking the road along the river, past the new hotel developments for a safer and quieter ride. The staff were very helpful and friendly. A perfect spot to bring your family!

My wife and I and a friend have just returned from a ten night stay at the Essence Hotel in Hoi An. It was our second visit to Hoi An An but our first to the Essence Hotel and Spa We had a balcony room on the fifth floor overlooking the river. The room was spacious and clean and the view always interesting. I loved watching the traffic along the street and the noise was nothing to worry about.
The breakfast was always excellent and the staff helpful and courteous. We spent most afternoons around the pool and then off to either An Hoi or the Le Loi street area for dinner. A taxi ride to the old town was only 25 Dong, about $1.25.
No review of the Essence Hoi An can be complete without saying thank you to Vanessa, the multi lingual, Swiss guest relations manager. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She was always smiling and pleased to help.
We will be back.

Our view was towards the pool and the suroundings which was very nice.
The room was very lovely. The staff spoke good english and made a lot of effort to help us with whatever we needed. They had a laptop that they loaned me free of charge. Cocktails were delicious and the poolarea was also nice and cozy. Breakfast was great and there is a possibility to rent cheap mopeds next door. 10 minutes walking distance to the centre.
