Had a wonderful stay in Florence @hotel Ester. Very close to train station, and centre of town. Rooms were clean and newly refurbished with a lift to ease the legs of stairs. I highly recommend this hotel.

We found and booked our room online for Hotel Ester. We traveled by train and easily walked to the room. An elevator helped get our bags up to the third floor room. Great bathroom, comfortable beds, nice courtyard balcony. Easy walk to the center.

Very happy with the hotel and the services. Whatever was promised and whatever they could do further to make your stay comfortable, they do. The lady at the reception gave us a lot of her time to give details about places to visit and places to eat. She helped us plan our day trip for the next day as well,... More

We received a friendly welcome and was given a room across the street with our own balcony. We also had access to the kitchen and washing machine. We were surprised that breakfast was not included, however we did receive a reduced rate for breakfast at a nearby bakery. It was very good and friendly. The receptionist provided helpful ideas for... More

I thought this was a hostel. The room is great size (all are different) location is fantastic (half block from train and bus, great market across the street, walk to EVERYTHING in under 30 minutes) and price is good (can not believe how expensive Florence is!) and free, dependable wifii. But this is not three star hotel. Furniture and hotel... More

We stayed here for two nights in room 5 and it was huge, clean, had decent wifi, and had a big tv. The reception gave us incredible recommendations for dinner spots - both seemed like hidden gems with mostly locals. We will definitely go back here.

We chose this hotel because of the location, 3 min to the station and walking distance to the duomo, and the cost. We were not disappointed. The hotel was easy to find and the rooms were surprisingly big. We were placed on the road, so had a view of the street from our small balcony, which was nice. Only issue... More
