This is my second review of the Hotel Estherea, made a year after the first. It's only time I've wanted to write in again to emphasize my first impressions. In my view this is one of the world's great hotels. I knew I hadn't seen it all, but I thought I'd seen a great deal for one lucky guy, and I'll tell you, there may be places as beautiful, but none more. Every. . .single. . .detail is attended to. No corner is less than fascinating. Every aspect of the decor, in the rooms as much as the common areas, makes me want to run to the owners and kiss them. They've thought of everything and made what they've thought of the best it can be for the space, including the gym, the elevators and the keychains! The food I've experienced is utterly becoming of the hotel itself. First rate, over the top in copiousness with European class. And of course the staff are youthful, eager, accommodating, but real. No airs or obsequiousness. Really, if the god of Hotels has a favorite designer, this is one of their projects. This is one of those rare places one discovers when traveling that is so delightful, staying in is event enough. Things outside could be good, but better??
By the way, if you visit a second time, take advantage of the offer to become a "Friend of Hotel Estherea". For the short form they ask you to submit, you're entitled to free breakfast and internet, and a checkout time of 2 p.m. There is no end to this establishment's talent for pleasing its guests.
