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!

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
