This boutique hotel provides charm, friendly service and an ideal location, right on the main square, for exploring the old Jewish quarter of Krakow. Rooms are old style, a little dark and basic but the bed was comfortable, the bathroom is updated and breakfast is great. A tour company they recommended completely screwed up, but the hotel did everything possible... More

The hotel is located in the Jewish quarter of Krakow on a square with little traffic. The room I got was in the back of the property so it was quiet. It was good sized and the decor old world charm, but the bathroom was thoroughly modern. The air conditioner worked perfectly and was a welcome relief from the high... More

The location of the Ester Hotel was brilliant. It was close to the Old Market Square and it was right by the stretch of bars and restaurants. The hotel itself was rather claustrophobic. Very small reception area, everything in the room seemed to be crammed as well. The view from the window was better with the curtains shut! I would... More

If you are a light sleeper you should not choose this hotel. Tourists are passing by very loudly and very late - the walls appear to be thin - you can hear what they are talking about in the next room (swedish!!). Staff is friendly but not especially serviceminded - more like routine. Young students probably. The room was fine... More

This hotel is lovely. Right in the middle of the Jewish quarter. Lovely spacious rooms. Only sampled the breakfast but that was lovely. Staff very helpful especially the driver service they offer for trips. Ireneusz Wis was brilliant. Picked us up from our hotel in the morning and drive us to each trip all day long. Excellent day thanks to... More

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
