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.

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.

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.

Very close to the train station. Grocery store almost in front. Downstairs lobby as inviting as a jail in 1930. But hotel reception is okay. I had a very small room that smelled musty. Had to buy an air freshner. No view. Could not reach the hangers in the wardrobe and I am 5'4". Wardrobe felt like it would come apart if I was touching it. There was a safe and a small fridge in the room. Staff was helpful. Coffee not too bad for a vending machine.
