Good location close to the train station with a Lytton and a good host. A little confusion with the hotel being on two sides of the street with different names and several different floors. The room was fully remodeled and very nice with a modern bathroom.

Stayed here with a small group tour, and it was great, the shared kitchen, the room with the balcony was the best. Marco and his staff were very helpful, great location close to the train station and into the main part of the city. Will go back and stay next time in Florence Would recommend

The Hotel Ester is located very close to the train station Santa Maria Novella and an easy walk. There is a lyft, which is helpful with luggage. We had a great room on the top floor that was large, with a modern bathroom and a panoramic view from the balcony. Marco, the owner was very accommodating. There is a safe... More

Ester hotel was situated in the historic centre of Florence on the second floor of a 12th century building. Our triple room was big enough for the three of us with comfortable beds, an electric kettle, a small... More

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

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
