What I like about this place is, it's only few minutes walk from the train station. The room was quiet big but with a little bit of problem with the very small lift. Other users doesn't seem to understand that the door needs to be closed so that other people can use the lift. Our room was on the 4th... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location. It is close to the major city's attractions, main train and bus stations I really enjoyed my stay at this B&B and the staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. The room I stayed with my children was massive and very spacious. I will definitely book this B&B when I return to Florence. Very... More

I advise you have breakfast elsewhere as this hotel breakfast is poor- doesn't compare to hotels such as Hilton and holiday inn!! We luckily got the largest room in the hotel when we paid for triple. The fridge/freezer is VERY USEFUL. The bathroom is large has two mirrors, a shower, table,sink and two toilets. The room has a large wardrobe... More

We originally booked the Maison de Charme, the check in for Maison de Charme is Hotel Ester. When we checked in the attendant said he would upgrade us to Hotel Ester. We were given the top floor room which had an excellent view of the Duomo! The room set up was unusual, upon entering the room door, the bathroom is... More

We stayed at Hotel Ester for 3 nights and it exceeded all of our expectations! Marco, the hotel owner went out of his way to accommodate our needs and even went above and beyond to make us a special breakfast. The rooms are newly renovated. Very spacious and very clean. The shower is large, especially compared to other Italian hotels.... More

We rented two rooms for our family trip there in May 2016. The hotel is a short walk from the train station. The hotel manager is one of the hardest working and accommodating hosts I've ever met. We booked Maison de charme, but the booking said Hotel Ester. So we arrived at Hotel Ester and the manager took us across... More

Hotel Ester is not a grand luxury hotel with grand features. It is a very nice three star hotel. Very comfortable beds, nice modern bathrooms, and clean. Marco will provide you with friendly banter in the morning along side your coffee, tea, juice, sandwich, or pastry. He makes a croissant with his secret weapon chocolate spread. I stayed there with... More
