Lonely Planet review
This budget hotel near St Joseph Cathedral has spacious and light rooms, excellent rates and an almost tranquil location (by Old Quarter standards). There are two annexes within walking distance.
Our independent authors have visited Especen Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Hanoi.
Description provided by property
Especen hotel is one of the first mini hotels since 1990s located in the center of the Old Quarter in Hanoi. It is just a stone through from St. Joseph's Church (Cathedral) on a quiet alley off of Ấu Triệu street. This convenient location allows us 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 all famous travel points, restaurants, craft shops, pubs and art galleries,... as soon as you step on to the main road.
Highly recommended by almost famous travel guidebooks as Lonely Planet, Petit Futé, the Rough guide, InSight guide, Michellin, John Benjamin,... and CNN Travel also.
