I read reviews here before booking Ester, and they proved to be true. Perfect location if you plan to focus on exploring Jewish Krakow and Podguzhe, close to central Krakow, too. Reasonable price for the quality stay. Great staff.breakfasts- very good and diverse, will suit both western tastes and eastern european, as they serve some Polish specialities every morning.

I have just returned from the Hotel Ester and it was the loveliest experience. The rooms are just beautiful, spotlessly clean and look like the website. The bed was really comfortable and it had all the amenities you could need, from tea and coffee making facilities to a mini bar, complimentary toiletries, air conditioning and a huge bonus was the...

Centrally located in the charming Jewish quarter section of Krakow. Small, dark rooms and limited food options, but there are numerous options within steps of the lobby. Easy walk to downtown square. Reasonable rates

I recently stayed at the Hotel Ester for two weeks with a group of 15 American undergraduate students. The students and I are well pleased with our visit! The staff was always kind and very attentive, even though we could be at times somewhat demanding. Often, staff anticipated our needs in advance. And in several instances, they went above and...

Just returned from a 3 night stay in this lovely hotel with its great character. Beautiful, large room which overlooked the square. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. There was a large choice for breakfast and it was served until noon each day. We ate in the restaurant twice and the food was excellent. The atmosphere was warm and... More

This hotel is set out in a beautiful characteristic Jewish square, the hotel is beautifully clean, and the staff are very helpful indeed. We had breakfast most days, which altered slightly each day, the food was delicious and there was lots of choice. We ate in the restaurant once for dinner, and the staff were helpful and advised on the... More

When the group I was traveling with arrived, we were greeted on our floor by a naked, drunk man. This was only the first of the problems at this hotel. The second, once we entered our rooms was to find out that there would be no way to have two people sharing the room. There was literally no place to... More

When I was in Krakow last year I stayed at a different hotel, but was able to wonder around the city. So I already knew the little square Hotel Ester is located at. Nice and in the middle of the Kazimierz district. Location is perfect. Rooms are a bit dark, and you have to like Klezmer music, there's a band... More
