OK
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.

Florence
My short trip to Florence was made very comfortable by Hotel Ester. They provided every accommodation even before and after the time we checked-in. Mark and Ann, who were very friendly and welcoming, made sure that our needs no matter how brief our stay was, were well attended. The location of Hotel Ester is very strategic because it is near the SMN train station, restaurants, and shopping stores. They gave us a room with a breath-taking view of Florence. I will definitely book this hotel again for my second trip to Florence and will surely recommend it to my friends and family.

Comfy place but cold during autumn
The hotel is a small place located in a nice location. The place is good and overall comfortable. Only complaint about room facilities is that these were extremely cold at night. About the service, I paid for breakfast and owner insisted that I did not pay for it and would not give me the tickets. I had to look up my reservation to prove I had paid extra for it and and ask for them, along with the bath slippers, bottle with water, etc that they advertise. As for breakfast, consisting of a pastry, small sandwich, a cup coffee and a glass juice, he only gave me tickets for one day only. I had to ask, again, for the breakfast tickets for all days of my stay. Wi-FI is good. Keep in mind that it advertises as having free long distance calls but the calls are made using SKYPE. This is not mentioned and when wanting to make a call to solve an issue overseas regarding travel docs, they told me it could not be made. Had to, again, tell them it was not what they advertise and they finally agreed. Regardless, it is a nice, clean place and good price, but it is important to be straightforward to avoid misunderstandings.

Great Location
Steps away from the train station, this hotel is small, very clean with friendly staff and comfortable rooms, but...the reception is on the second floor reached via an open, European style cage elevator, which I personally dislike. I don't recall seeing this information on any of the hotel's descriptions: if I had, I would have booked elsewhere. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel for a couple of nights' stay in Florence.
