Hotel Ester, Florence
Great stay - Can't beat the price for location, comfort, security. Marco was very accommodating with regard to adjusting rooms, providing info, offering a.m. food. He stored our luggage on the last day until we were ready to take the train out. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station, bus station, Central Market, ATMs, and countless restaurants. The place was quiet too, although bear in mind that we were there in mid-Nov, so starting to go off-season.

Hotel Ester, Florence
booked the room with balcony ( amazing view of the city) .. location perfect near the main train station and all the scenic tourist attractions are walking distance from the hotel.

Hotel Ester, Florence
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.

Hotel Ester in Florence
Florence is gorgeous at Christmas but very cold. The lights are spectacular and the FLIGHT exhibition makes it even better. Motel Ester had paid parking which is a huge plus but it isn't in an ideal area. The area is congested and run down but is only 10 minutes walk to the centre. The hotel staff were excellent, friendly and welcoming - unlike most Florentine people who are not.

You can’t judge a book by its cover
The hotel occupies one floor of a four or five storey building. The building exterior is shabby so the very nice, obviously recently renovated room was a relief. Hotel is clean. All the staff we encountered were helpful and spoke English.
