Stayed during easter. Hotel Ester is a nice little hotel in Kazimierz area. Rooms are a bit dark, but clean and nice and have enough room. Free WiFi, minibar, safe, TV, coffee/tea maker, hair dryer (not very good). Breakfast was nice and I enjoyed the local flavours. What I liked the most is the location. Kazimierz is lovely and lively... More

The hotel is very well situated in the Jewish quarter. Waking distance from the ghetto and Schindler's factory. Most shops and outlets ( not including restaurants and bars) are closed on Easter Sunday. Museums open on Easter monday, shops still closed. Great short break. Allow the hotel to arrange your trips to Auschwitz etc. better than being in a large... More

We had a short stay at the Hotel Ester. The rooms are a little dated but very clean. The staff were very good, but the food in the hotel is certainly worth mentioning. The restaurant is within the hotel and not really very prominent. The food is Jewish and excellent. We also enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Highly recommend the hotel.

This Hotel is situated in a beautiful square in the Jewish Quarter, surrounded by fantastic restaurants and plenty of culture. The staff are lovely, and have plenty of recommendations for places to visit whilst in the city. They were very accommodating and booked us a tour of Birkenau-Auschwitz and the Salt Mine within a few minutes of asking. Wi-fi was... More

lovely hotel with beautifully decorated rooms, all in a different style with some quirky touches (loved the vintage style phone in our room!). Professional and polite staff. We were very impressed with the selection and quality of food for breakfast and ate in the restaurant one night too, where we had a fantastic meal with a live klezmer band playing.... More

Excellent stay at hotel, clean, good room and facilities, breakfast very filling and supplied with a breakfast box because of catching a early flight.
