This hotel in Florence seems to be in two parts and we got the extension. We first went to the main part and the receptionist guy took us to our annexe and was generally helpful. The lifts in the building were definitely from 1930! The whole place looked grim. (Next morning we had to go to a small local cafe... More

The area looks a little sketchy at first when walking from the train station. However, that's just Florence in general. (i.e. Full of swindlers trying to take your money). Nevertheless,when you walk up the stairs you are greeted by the best staff. We stayed here 4 nights. Each night we encountered a different staff member. They were all consistent with... More

We hit the jackpot, in this place you feel like at home, staff are friendly, funny & welcoming. The location is great, just 5 minutes from all the hot spots, such as Piazza del Duomo or the Market square. Rooms are neat, modern & super well equipped. Thanks for a great time Hotel Ester

Stayed here for a weekend with friends when we visited Florence and everything about it was great. The location is perfect just a short walk from the train station and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and new and had AC, all of which we were happy about. Great value for what we paid as it... More

We were lucky in that we were given a room on the top floor with an amazing view. The rooms are kept clean and the bed was very comfortable which we haven't had in the other places we have stayed in Italy. The owner is lovely and very helpful and the hotel is located close to the station, markets, restaurants... More

Great location near the train station, after climbing a few sets of stairs you will be greeted by a friendly staff member who is always available. Room was clean and quite spacious, we we're surprised by the large and updated bathroom as well! Not many common areas, but in a great city like Florence you don't need to spend much... More

Excellent location. Close proximity to f.s.m.n and all tourist pick up points. Well maintained facilities. Good WiFi signals. Very friendly and helpful staff. Gave good guidance of the nearby attractions. No breakfast option. Provided option of nearby cafe not that attractive.

Amazing place and privileged view of Duomo! Everybody was very nice and polite! Excellent localization, close to the station and commerce, so i could go to the points of Firenze by foot. Highly recommend. When i go back to Firenze i hope to stay in Hotel Ester again with my wife and family

The positive point is it's close to train station . But it's quite tricky to find this place as it does not have big hoarding. It's in a old building which has a shop in ground floor and this place is in second floor there r many other things in the same complex . The rooms r okay and not... More

I stayed here for a weekend at the end of April 2015. The hotel is located less than 5 minutes walk from the train station, and 15 minutes walk from the Cathedral. The room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The staff were very helpful and courteous. A nice hotel!
