good location and affordable

It was very pleasant. Luca and Marco was very helpful throughout the stay and friendly. The place was clean and with a nice view as we stayed on the top floor. It's kinda old fashion but that's what makes it special in its own way.

Perfect location, central and can walk to ALL interesting site seeing areas. Local restaurant next to the hotel is fantastic! Basic hotel and ideal if you are bit planning to spend any time in your room but just need a safe clean place to sleep.

Good location

Hard to find, registration not well marked, on 4th floor of a building that was across street from room. With lots of luggage it was quite the effort getting across street and up small elevator to 4th floor. 5 minute walk to cathedral area which was great!

This is a decent value for Florence. Our room was HUGE by Italian standards, and it was pretty comfortable, however, we booked a non-smoking room and it constantly stunk of cigarettes. The staff is really nice and the location is great - you are two minutes from the train station and can walk to everything in Florence.

I m very sorry you say the room slell like cigarettes , in all out rooms is strictly forbidden to smoke ! sometimes people do not respect it ( not often ) and i am very sorry if that was the case Marco .

I love this hotel!

We were in the triple room with the City view, and it was a WONDERFUL view! It was my second time staying in this room, and it still hasn't disappointed me. The bed was super comfy, had air conditioning, very close to the train station, and a 10 minute walk from major sights. Breakfast was simple, but a nice break from breakfast buffets. Neighborhood is a bit seedy because it's so close to the train station. Marco the manager was very helpful and accommodating. I will always stay here when I come to Florence!

Hotel Ester is ideally located - Value for money

Posted May 16, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed there 6/5-13/5 with my wife and 6 good friends. Hotel Ester is good value for money and is ideally located within walking distance to most of the great sights - like Il Duomo, the Uffizi Galleries, Ponte Vecchio etc. - and just a five minutes' walk from the railway station Santa Maria Novella. Friendly staff, good beds.
