“Central, polite, clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

Nice people, room was perfect. Very close and easy to find from the train station. Computer in the room was a nice touch. Free wifi with full signal. A/C worked great 32+ outside. All around great deal.

The hotel is perfectly situated - 2min walk to the train station, and 10min walk to major attractions such as the Duomo. We had a great room (number 2) that was very spacious - it could sleep 4 people - with a huge bathroom, that included a spa.
The hotel staff are friendly and very helpful, and there is free wifi and a large screen computer in every room. Also the beds, pillows and other furnishings are very comfortable.
Overall our stay was fantastic and would definetley recommend it.

From the moment we arrived 'til the moment we left, we enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ester. We actually stayed at their sister hotel across the road, and couldn't fault anything. The girl on the front desk was very helpful and friendly; our room was recently renovated and was lovely (even had a balcony that overlooked the street and distant hills); the free computer in our room was an added bonus; we were only a short walk to the train station, hop on hop off bus, restaurants, market, the Duomo (you have to make the effort to see it) - in fact we were so central to everything that we walked everywhere. We loved Florence and our stay at Hotel Ester and would def do both again.

We had a great experience at this hotel! The front desk was very helpful. The room was very clean and recently rennovated. There was free cable and internet! The only downside is the wifi was a little iffy the first night, but there was a computer in the room so it was no inconvience at all, and the following nights I had no problem connecting to wifi. It was less than a 2 minute walk from the train station, a grocery store, and the vendor market. No site was more than a 15-20 minute walk which was wonderful since we could save money on transportation by walking everywhere. Highly recommend this hotel.

Marco was extremely helpful as soon as we arrived, taking the time to mark on a map all the most important things to see. I noted on the booking form that we would love a room with a view and he made sure we had one. The room was very clean and spacious and cleaned every day.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable room, in a hotel that is very central.

Great hotel! Cheap, centrally located (3 minute walk to the Duomo), cable, wifi and an actual desktop computer in the room, big bed, elevator in the building, and very clean ensuite bathroom. The manager Marco is amazing, he set us up with everything and will answer any question you have. Definitely recommend staying here!

Let's set this straight - Hotel Esther is not a luxury hotel. And just as well that Esther has no pretensions that it is one. So you won't get fancy 500 thread count sheets, leather recliners, room service etc. But what Esther does, it does very well. Staff are helpful and friendly, rooms are incredibly clean, they may look spartan but they contain everything you need - ensuite toilet and shower, airconditioning, large wardrobe, writing desk. The mattress is basic but functional and we had no problems sleeping. And they throw in extras too, how about this, a full-fledged sky box! And a desktop with internet connection and skype. And it is super conveniently located. It's not five star in appearance, but five stars in experience. Well done.
