Hotel Ester
This is a fun place to stay in the Jewish Quarter, with many truly excellent restaurant options available, including the hotel restaurant. The room was quite clean, very quiet, and charming. The only problem was the WiFi. It was only accessible in the reception area and restaurant. I was unable to access it in my room (on the first floor). I told the staff every day I could not access it. One person said she would have the router restarted, but others would just shrug.
