        The hotel was in an excellent location, just minutes walk from tourist attractions, great restaurants, train station and shops. The staff was exceptional, very helpful right from the minute we set foot in the door, with everything, from suggestions to great food, shopping, and even attraction locations and local events. Not to mention the price was very fair. I highly suggest Hotel Ester for anyone who's looking for a wonderful experience in Florence. The knowledgeable owner was even helpful in suggesting scenic spots in the Tuscan region.

        The staff were so friendly and kind! Anna really help us make our trip special! Thank-you:)

        The hotel was perfect!

        The room was much nicer than we'd expected, and the location was very good.

        There were only two showers near our room and one toilet, which was a bit annoying. It wasn't a big deal, but sometimes having to wait was less than ideal.

        the staff were friendly, has a kitchen , free wifi, good location.. there's 2 bathrooms for sharing among 7 rooms I think.. but it's very comfortable overall , I recommend it!

        We stayed only 1 night, The location is perfect, 2 min walk from the main train station. Big room, clean enough....

        Shared bathroom, very old furnitures, no wi-fi connection from the room, reception was in the other building,

        Very helpful staff and comfortable room in the prime location only a min from the train station and 10 minutes walk to the duomo.

        The mattress's too soft.

        very close to the station.

        they didn't change my towels for three days, bed sheets neither. the room smelt a bit musty maybe because the air conditioner was not clean I think. I even could not open the window because it was all rainy during my stay. (well, that's not the hotel's fault) The worst is the reception. neither friendly nor kind. one of them even cut off my words, not in friendly way such as helping me but that of offending me, I got the feeling that she couldn't bear my english any more. (Remember. you should speak english or italian VERY fluently in front of this hotel's reception)

        Very helpful staff. Located right across from train station. Safe block. Computer/Sat TV in room.

        The room was very very small. Not comfortable for two people. Shower was literally on top of the toliet.

        Staff were extremely helpful, explaining where to go and making reservations. Excellent location (5-10) minutes walk to all the sites.

        Old-fashion style hotel with amazing windows(old-fashion style).Mu window was looking to the church. The placement is perfect, 1minute from the train station and 10 minutes from the center.Big room with bright walls. TV, air condition.I had a room with shared bathroom. Bathrooms are cleaned as well.I liked it.I was staying there for 2 days.Fall in love to Florence!

        When windows are opened a little bit noisy. I just don't like using air-condition and try to open windows.

        Good electronics-pc in room, good wi fi. Good selection of tv channels including Fox news. Very close to train station and all sites nearby on foot. Room was clean.

        Check in lobby on second floor. Very small elevators. Room was across street in a different building with other hotels. Common area around room was a mess---looks like extra furnishings stored in hallway or for remodeling. No breakfast, but McDonalds right next door.

      • Older travelers

        Nice warm welcome by name. All staff we came in contact with were extremely helpfull and genuine. Nice family run hotel with a nice feel to it.Fantastic location-2 mins from bus/train station,close to shops,cafes,restaurants etc. Would definately return if we go back to Florence. Big thank you to Anna & Rosanna for assistance in transportation to various destinations for friends wedding. Be cautious with taxi's in Florence-drivers lack knowledge with destinations and drive around endlessly ripping you off.

        Everything was great. Comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, balcony, air con, quiet room etc etc

        the location and the people worked in the hotel.You can find everything you need at here.

      • Couple

        Ester appears to be a family run hotel, and throughout our stay we felt welcomed like guests in their home rather than customers. The room was comfortable and clean. We were pleasantly surprised that there was a computer with Internet, and satellite tv in our room (included in room rate). We had shared bathroom facilities which were clean. The only thing was that we had to walk across the reception area everytime we need to use it. Otherwise, highly recommended for budget travellers.
