Exceptional menu with very helpful and friendly staff! Reasonably priced food for a hotel and exceptionally well cooked. Great location in the Jewish Quarter in nice, quaint idylic surroundings. I highly recommend the Pierogi Russian style, tasty and flavoursome! A++++

Stayed at Ester Hotel from 27th June until1st July 2016 and from the moment we entered until we left we were made to feel so welcome. We could not have picked a better hotel, it is situated in the old Jewish quarter, a place so full of character and charm. The rooms are lovely, a good size with very good... More

I took my wife here for her 40th birthday and I must say the hotel is beautiful, the rooms lovely and big, the beds massive and extremely comfy and the staff extremely friendly. I also loved the polish bar across the road from the hotel

This hotel was booked for me by biz associates but it was nice enough. The room was fairly small, single type beds were small but surprisingly comfortable. Pretty standard for Europe, probably a little better than average but problem not a 'very good'. It's a little tough to find, it looks like it's in a Jewish restaurant so look carefully... More

Room cramp. Old fashioned. Staff not too friendly. Had Mt ebay account hacked. Not sure if from hotel wifi or not though. Wouldn't return to hotel. Only good thing was location. Jewish quarter was nice as we're local restaurants.

I cut my leg and a toe on the furniture. Bed corners are hard and sharp wood corners. Tub/shower was a high climb and on to a slippery surface. The vertical pole supporting the hand shower was waist level at highest point. Totally ridiculous design for a hotel. Reading lamps aside bed have shades so dark that you can't read... More

We were only here for 1 night. The rooms were spacious and clean. We had adjoining rooms with friends, and thet had a few problems. Firstly the lights all blew, then the shower door fell off whilst my friend was in the shower. Our light also blew which left us with only lamps for light. The staff were really friendly... More
