Lets not judge the hotel by its looks is all i can say about Ester. Was so glad to pick up this hotel after seeing our room on the 5th floor. It had an breathtaking view. Sad we were there for just a day. The guy on the reception recommended us breakfast and dinner joints, which were just fabulous. Would... More

We stayed for 4 nights! The hotel is a block away from the train station and close to all sights! I can't say enough about how helpful and friendly the staff were! They provided us with helpful info, restaurant suggestions, etc! Location was perfect. There were cafés and a supermarket right across the street! A great find!

Cannot say enough nice things about how pleasant and helpful the staff were at Hotel Ester - from check in to check out the staff were willing to help with directions, recommendations, and reservations. We even had pleasant surprise when we showed up and our room had been upgraded! In terms of the rooms - as I said before, we... More

Discovered many pleasant surprises after checking in. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful and kind. He showed us to our rooms which were located across the street from the main hotel and showed us a very nice trick to getting our luggage up the tiny elevator to our floor. He also gave us some good suggestions to... More

Ask for the room with a view on the 5th floor---separated from the rest of the hotel. You will be thrilled with the panoramic view of the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. Even the small balcony is good. The room is "Paradiso"; the beds are "Inferno"! I don't know what the mattress was made of, but it was HARD! We spent... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and there are a lot of nice things to say about this hotel. The staff helped us with some suggestions about what to see. The room was clean but not impressive. However, when you are travelling to Florence, why spend much time in the room? The best part is the location -- it is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with a group and found it quite good. Rooms were fairly big and quiet with double glaze to keep the noise out. Wifi was ok but the best thing was the washing machine.everybody caught up after 5 days touring. Lift is small but at least there is one and its nice and handy to... More

In June 2013, I brought a school group to stay at Hotel Ester. I was disappointed at first because I was told that our group was in 2 different buildings. As the teacher, I was very concerned about this arrangement. However, Marco made things ok with only 1 room separated from everyone else. The separated group was in the main... More

We spent three nights and we all loved this hotel. Very clean and as quality and price was the best hotel of our trip in Italy. We will be back to Florence and will stay agin there. If you play pingpong and you can beat the owner "Marco" you'll get the room for free :)
