“Hotel Ester”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had a wonderful time in Florence and our hotel was awesome. The staff was friendly, spoke English very well, were helpful and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better location. Centrally located, we walked almost everywhere. The buses and train station were within 2 blocks and tourist buses were around the corner. We stayed 5 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. We would highly recommend Hotel Ester to anyone visiting Florence. Thank you to Marco, Anna and Aldo.. You guys were fantastic.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel 2 kids and 2 adults. We had a spacious room (2 single beds, and 1 double) and a very large bath room (jakuzi and shower). The hotel had just finished some renovations and so the comfort and ammenities were great.
little balcony in the courtyard. Possible parking (for a 15€/day fee).
Free wi-fi, with sat tv in the room and even a computer in the room!!
price was unbeatable (130€/night for 4).
very good location: in front of the train station so only 5 min walk to the duomo.
You could have a nespresso coffee (what else) in the lobby or I recommend the 4€ breakfast at the cafe down the street. Best value ever.
friendly staff.

Room Tip: i am told the room on the 4th floor have a great view. we were on the 2nd floor

Hotel Ester is the best value in Florence. I have traveled through Italy several times and it is the best hotel with the best price. We had the 2 four person rooms. One of our rooms had an amazing 5 star bathroom with a wonderful balcony. The other, while not quite as delux, was extremely extremely nice. The rooms were very quiet at night. They have English TVs, computers in every room, a phone that you can make international calls on, and wonderful wifi. They also have a fully stocked kitchen and free coffee. The location is great, everything is within walking distance. We didn't take a taxi once. The staff is so helpful and kind. We really felt like we were home. Hotel Ester made us wish we had stayed in Florence for a week.

Without doubt one of the best deals in Florence.
Friendly little hotel near all the monuments you don't want to miss. Just a walk away.
Also, next to the train station.

Tips:
- there are several hotels in the same building - reception is on the 2nd floor
- don't be scared by the elevator... It works fine
- if available ask for the room 22 in the 5th floor, and enjoy the view...

We were lucky to get a room with an amazing view. We could literally see the Duomo while sitting on the bed. The room had a neat set up, where the bathroom and a closet were on the first floor and there were stairs leading up to the bedroom. It could be uncomfortable for someone with difficulty moving up and down stairs but we had no problems. We loved having a computer with internet in the room. The location was very convenient - it was very close to the train station, and the directions they gave helped us find it. There are several hotels in the building, so you need to take the elevator or stairs to the right floor to check in. There are plenty of places nearby to get breakfast. Everything we visited was within walking distance. We had no problems with noise.

One of the reasons I chose this hotel was the price and I was worried about the service cause of such a low price however my fears was eased after my first night here. Clean and spacious rooms friendly staff and the service was also great. I'm from Italy and come from Roma so when I went to Venice I wanted good value accommodation and this hotel truly provided me with my full needs
