A quirky hotel, reasonably priced and super secure (three keys to get in and out of). Large rooms, good bathroom and facilities in the lobby for tea, coffee etc. also small utility room that was very handy.

First stayed in July '14 and returned this summer. The rooms are excellent, views across the city from 22 & 23 are second to none. On both trips the rooms were clean with good WiFi, fridge, safe and air conditioning. The staff are very friendly, with a good knowledge of the area, and can't do enough to make you welcome....

This hotel in Florence seems to be in two parts and we got the extension. We first went to the main part and the receptionist guy took us to our annexe and was generally helpful. The lifts in the building were definitely from 1930! The whole place looked grim. (Next morning we had to go to a small local cafe...

The area looks a little sketchy at first when walking from the train station. However, that's just Florence in general. (i.e. Full of swindlers trying to take your money). Nevertheless,when you walk up the stairs you are greeted by the best staff. We stayed here 4 nights. Each night we encountered a different staff member. They were all consistent with...

We hit the jackpot, in this place you feel like at home, staff are friendly, funny & welcoming. The location is great, just 5 minutes from all the hot spots, such as Piazza del Duomo or the Market square. Rooms are neat, modern & super well equipped. Thanks for a great time Hotel Ester

We were lucky in that we were given a room on the top floor with an amazing view. The rooms are kept clean and the bed was very comfortable which we haven't had in the other places we have stayed in Italy. The owner is lovely and very helpful and the hotel is located close to the station, markets, restaurants...
