Property Description

Especen hotel is one of the first mini hotels built since the 1990s located in the center of the Old Quarter in Hanoi. It is just a stone's throw from St. Joseph's Church (Cathedral) on a quiet alley off of Au Trieu 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, craft shops, pubs and art galleries,... as soon as you step on to the main road.Highly recommended by many famous guidebooks as: Lonely Planet, Petit Futé, Michellin, Rough guide, Travel guide, FoothPrint,...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.
