Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

While many memory foam mattresses have a strong chemical smell upon unboxing, the Hypnia Essential Hybrid Mattress was almost absent in this regard with only the most minor new-mattress smell that dissipated within a few hours.

Thanks to the border foam, the mattress provided excellent edge support, which is a great feature for those who use the full surface of the mattress or often sit on the edge of the bed. 

Whether you're a side, back, or even stomach sleeper, the zoned support system caters to all. It's rare to find a mattress that satisfies a wide range of sleepers in terms of comfort and support.

The combination of memory foam and pocket springs ensures a supportive sleep surface for individuals of all body types. It offers a balanced feel of contouring and resilience. We've seen this before with similar specifications in the past and been fairly impressed, but the improved edge support in this particular unit really brought the whole thing together nicely.

The cooling properties of the cover and breathable springs to an exceptional job of preventing heat retention and build up within the foam, something memory foam has traditionally suffered from.

While doing a great job of keeping temperatures as close to moderate as possible, the materials will never offer a true cooling experience, instead appreciate this mattress for what it is - a great all-season mattress that won't get you too hot, or too cold.

Why our sleep experts loved it

From the moment I landed on Hypnia's website, I was intrigued by their Essential Hybrid Mattress - a blend of memory foam and pocket springs that promised a comforting, restful sleep. So, after a brief undertaking of outreach, we had the opportunity to take a closer look at the range (this is just one of three current models).

For those who don’t know, Hypnia is a renowned manufacturer with profound expertise in creating premium boxed mattresses, and has been a force to reckon with since 2008. Initially carving its niche in France, Hypnia extended its reach to the UK, launching the Essential Hybrid Mattress, a true bestseller that harmoniously fuses memory foam and pocket springs. It's the quintessential hybrid option for those seeking a mix of comfort and support.

So that’s a bit about the company, let’s talk about placing an order. The ordering process through the Hypnia website is fairly seamless and one of the better ones I have come across. After selecting your desired size, the checkout process is straightforward and secure. Within 48 hours, my mattress was on its way, with free delivery - a service I much appreciated. The anticipation began!

Unpacking

The mattress arrived through the ArrowXL delivery company on a convenient 2-man service in a surprisingly compact box, considering its size. It was heavier than I expected, but thankfully, the delivery team manoeuvred it inside with no fuss. The unboxing was a satisfying experience. As soon as I removed the protective plastic, the mattress began to expand. Within a few hours, it was at its full size - a feat of engineering that left me astounded. This gave me ample time to check out in more detail some of the specifications that help make this product great. 

Once left to expand, the Essential Hybrid Mattress looks to be a well-crafted piece with a thoughtful layering system, each contributing to a comfortable sleep experience. It comprises:

A breathable, velvety quilted Air-wave® cover. Non-removable but hypoallergenic, it's the first touchpoint of comfort.

The premium memory foam layer which hugs your body and alleviates pressure.

A Cloud-zoned Foam® layer to provide differentiated support to your waist, lower back, and hips, promoting healthier spinal alignment.

Zoned pocket springs to absorb movement and offer excellent support, enhancing the overall sleep quality.

Border foam casing to improve edge support, providing ease when getting in and out of bed.

Finally, a cold foam layer that restricts sagging, thereby increasing the mattress's durability.

Comfort & Firmness

With a medium-firm feel that scores 6.7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, the Hypnia Essential Hybrid Mattress is designed keeping an average sleeper in mind. The quilted textiles and memory foam layer bestow a soothing, weightless feel. This mattress also features a zoned system, which efficiently distributes weight across the mattress, making it a suitable option for all body types and significantly reducing motion transfer - an important factor for couples.

First Impressions and The Outer Materials

The first thing I noticed was the breathable Air-wave® cover, velvety to the touch, and the faint new-mattress smell. But, as the brand assured, it dissipated within a few days.

From its aesthetically pleasing design to its innovative features, the Essential Hybrid mattress is a product of meticulous engineering. The Air-wave® cover, besides being breathable, is designed with practicality in mind, featuring handles at the bottom for easy manoeuvring. The layer of Cloud-zoned Foam® aligns ergonomically to your spine, providing support exactly where needed. The hybrid technology also promotes airflow, preventing overheating and ensuring a cool and comfortable night's sleep.

Sleeping Experience

As I laid down on the mattress for the first time, I felt the top memory foam layer gently conform to my body. I noticed a softness that wasn't too enveloping, which I attributed to the Cloud-zoned Foam® underneath. It cradled my waist, lower back, and hips in all the right ways.

Sleeping on my back felt equally comfortable, thanks to the zoned pocket springs that provided excellent support and the cold foam layer that prevents sagging. For a side sleeper like me who often suffers from pressure points, this mattress was a dream come true.

But what truly sets the Essential Hybrid apart is its motion isolation. Even when my partner moved during the night, I was barely disturbed - a must-have feature for light sleepers like myself. When it comes to a long term sleep experience review, this is something we are going to be undertaking over the coming weeks so stay tuned as we will be updating this review with more insight into how we sleep!

Heat Regulation

One thing that I was particularly impressed with was the mattress's ability to regulate temperature. Thanks to its hybrid technology, the mattress allowed ample airflow, keeping me cool throughout the night.

Trial & Returns

Putting customer convenience first, Hypnia offers a generous 200-night trial, free standard delivery within the UK, and hassle-free returns. Customers can test the mattress for more than six months, and if not satisfied, they can return it for a full refund. Delivery is quick, typically within 2-3 working days, and returns are straightforward and environmentally conscious.

Even though I fell in love with the mattress almost instantly, knowing I had 200 nights to change my mind eased the purchasing anxiety. Hypnia’s generous trial period offered a peace of mind that was priceless.

Who is it Best for?

If you're seeking a hybrid mattress with a medium-firm feel, are in the market for an affordable yet high-quality product, or value a generous trial period and excellent after-sales service, the Hypnia Essential Hybrid Mattress could be the perfect choice. Whether you're a couple seeking motion isolation, a side sleeper needing pressure relief, or anyone who values spinal alignment and support, this mattress offers a balanced sleep experience that could well enhance your sleep health and lifestyle.

Overall Experience

The Essential Hybrid Mattress has been a game-changer in my sleep routine. It strikes the perfect balance between softness and support, stays cool throughout the night, and provides a peaceful sleep experience with minimal disturbances. The fact that Hypnia is committed to sustainability and social responsibility only adds to its appeal.

In conclusion, my experience with Hypnia's Essential Hybrid Mattress was more than just satisfactory. It was the comfortable, restful, and stress-free sleep solution I had been looking for. I highly recommend giving it a try if you're in the market for a high-quality, affordable hybrid mattress.

  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★

I'm astounded by the quality of the Essential Mattress for the price. You can feel it as soon as you touch it. It does get a little hot however where you sink into it so might not be suitable if you sleep hot.
