    I liked the proximity to many things I wanted to do. General presentation was good and restaurant was good. Staff spoke adequate English.

    I was in a very small room and more than once caught my leg on the sharp corner of the wooden frame around bed.

  • Group of friends

    Fabulous hotel, in a beautiful square. It could not be faulted, would definatley stay again.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The hotel was very convenient to the city centre while being in a quiet area. It also was close to many nice restaurants.

    We booked 2 double and 1 single rooms. One of the double rooms was very small. The bar closed at 10.30 even for residents which was too early, it should be open 'til 24.00 hrs.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The hotel staff spoke good English and assisted with booking one-day trips to sites such as the Wieliczka Salt Mine near Krakow. Hotel is within the walking distance from the city centre and the main attractions such as the Wawel hill.

    The breakfast was a bit over priced in our opinion and there was one occasion during our stay when we woke up at night to the cleaning sounds from the restaurant below, but other than that our visit was very pleasant.

    I experienced some troubles during my stay - the haidryer was very old and simply didn't work. It was very cold, the rooms are very small.

  • Group of friends
    9.4

    Excellent location , 10 minute walk to main square , or hop on tram (2 stops ) . superb restaurants close to hotel.Can highly recommend stay here . Have already told friends to go there .

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    We found the hotel very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Had read before departing some comments on your feedback page and noted some people complained about breakfast but we were perfectly happy with everything about the hotel. No complaints at all.

  • Single
    7.8

    proper hotel, nice, located on a nice square, new bathroom

    airco units behind the hotel are somewhat noisy

  • Single
    5.0

    Live music performance of Jewish music in the evening and good evening food

    Room allocated was small and one floor up from last stop of lift at the end of the corridor. Breakfast was uninspiring. Parking is not free as advertised (25-40 pln per day)

  • Single
    7.4

    Location was very good. Staff was helpful

    Room furniture was dated. Layout was tight so kept bumping into bed frame

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Small hotel with good restaurant, free public parking and free WiFi. Very comfortable location - only few minutes to Market Square.

    Frugal breakfast, only few TV channels

  • Couple
    9.6

    Gorgeous decor, very comfortable bed and a powerful big shower

    I was disappointed with breakfast. We went down at 9 everyday (finished at 11) and there were dirty plates on tables and not much food left. However on the last day we went at 8 and they were much more attentive.

  • Single
    8.2

    Quiet position yet very close to a selection of restaurants and within walking distance (or an easy tram ride) of the castle, central square, railway station etc.

  • Single
    8.2

    Excellent location, cleaness

    Some details which are not acceptable in 4 stars hotel: poor breakfast, bad coffee, no hot milk on the coffee table, no mini-bar in the room. It's rather 3 stars, not 4 stars hotel

  • Couple
    4.2

    located in a quiet neighbourhood, free public parking in front of the hotel

    Hotel Ester is worth 3 stars, not 4. Old-fashioned hotel. Poor breakfast: self-service coffee & tea facilities don't work properly, staff is neglecting guests, if you get up late, a lot of items aren't available anymore at the buffet
