Nice if you get a good room
Pretty good hotel in a great location. Comfy and clean. Our friends booked the same room but ended up in a different building which wasn't as nice, but then were able to change to one even nicer than ours, so not all rooms you book are created equal.

The room is clean, quiet and roomy, the fridge keep my fruit last longer, but there's no elevator so up and down the stairs a little inconvenience. There is a delicious beef soup (pho bo) place only few steps away from hotel only in the morning, so I had breakfast every morning before starting my adventures.

Great stay for the budget traveler!
We had a great stay at the Especen Hotel in Hanoi! This is a perfect hotel for the budget traveler. It is a very comfortable place to stay. You can pay for nicer in town, but for the price it is perfect. Also, we loved the location. It was in a quieter alley, that felt more tucked away. It was also a great walk to all places in the city

Excellent value
Nice hotel with great staff. Excellent price. Lowest airport transfer I found in Hanoi ($11). Bathroom could have been a bit nicer but that is the only improvement.

Mixed bag
The location of the hotel is down one of the smaller alleys in Hanoi, near St Joseph's Cathedral, but make sure you go to the correct one, as there is another one a short walk from this one. The room was big, clean, offered air conditioning and wifi. However, we never had hot water at all during our stay. This wasn't too much of a problem as we went in summer when it was extremely hot, but do be careful if you're going when it isn't as hot. We also asked about breakfast one day when we were going to eat in the hotel but got a response that the chef wasn't working that day... and when we asked about laundry services which the hotel offers, we got a reply saying that there was no power... we only stayed in Hanoi for five days but it did appear that some of the services which seem to be offered were lacking.
