I actually lived in Florence before so I know the area, came back for 2 days and was looking for a cheap but decent place. I stayed there twice at different occasions, the hotel has two locations- main where there is the reception and the other rooms are in the building across the road. The location is perfect, just next... More

My partner and I stayed at Hotel Ester for 5 nights. We stayed across the road from the main hotel in their other rooms due to our request for a room with a view so we didn't get to interact with staff face to face other than at our initial check in which was really helpful (Vlatka). The room was... More

I stayed in room 1 and it was fantastic. New furnishings, great location, and SKY TV. It was so awesome to finally get some programming in English, and not just BBC. We're talking premium movie channels. Staff was great as well. Thank you Croatian lady.

I ended up at this hotel after the hotel I booked in didn't honour my reservation and frankly, I was in a pinch and took the best room I could find on Trip Advisor. I was pretty pleased with my last-minute reservation. The hotel is near the train station and the front desk staff are awesome! - the best thing... More

The location of this hotel could not have been more perfect for us. We had a room with a balcony where we faced the Duomo. We were within 5 minutes walking distance to the Duomo and major landmarks in Florence. The room had modern amenities. The bathroom was also very nice. The hotel also does laundry service for 3 euro... More

Hotel Ester was a perfect, professional, and accommodating hotel. As a travelling college student, I had been staying in cheap hostels and B&Bs, so I didn't expect much from this hotel for its cheap price. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was super helpful and gave us a map and showed us where all landmarks were in relation to... More

loved to be there and talk to the staff that were everywhere to help with their guidance and useful advise. The room had a PC, pretty unusual for a rented room. The location is good (especially if you commute by public transportation). The hotel can offer its parking ( with extra cost) for your car which is very convenient in... More

Where do I even begin? I've never felt so welcomed and loved while checking in to a hotel. Staff and owner, Marco, were more than accommodating and did anything and everything to help in any way they could. Recommending from what restaurants to eat to where we could go out for drinks. The room was so cute, warm and very... More

Staff are helpful and location is good. They assisted me with a number of issues and the food market is nearby, my main reason to stay there. However, my room was dour, there is no breakfast as you have to go to a place around the corner. They offer to bring it to your room but this would mean leaving... More
