    Very good

    Well located in quiet but attractive square. Nice, well furnished hotel.

    We had a lovely room overlooking the square, our friends were not so lucky, their room was dark and overlooked the air conditioning unit.

    The Hotel Ester is a charming little hotel with a lot of character and in a great location. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful and our overall experience of staying was very positive and I would definitely recommend the hotel for anyone visiting Krakow.

    We were given one of the attic rooms on the 4th floor which I have to say were a little small and uncomfortable, very well maintained but just a bit too cramped. The rooms on the lower floors looked much bigger and if booking this hotel again I would make a point of requesting one of these.

    Excellent situation, good service, but the hotel is definitely not worth for four stars. Three stars is absolutely enough for this hotel. The quality of the breakfast was poor. The coffee and juices were tasteless. It seemed that they do not wash the frying pans, as the eggs were black underneath – and upside. Regardless our order bacon was available first on the fourth morning. The room was rather small. There was a satellite channel, but only one (sky news). The bathroom had been modernized, but there was not enough space for the necessaries of two persons. Only one small shelf, size 80 x 20cm. No glasses in the bathroom for tooth brushes. After request we received two plastic ones, which were far too light for keeping toothbrushes in. So we went to the bar in the neighborhood and bought two solid drinking glasses and placed them on the bathroom self. But the cleaning staff took them away!

    Superb

    We had a lovely room with a tub big enough for two! But the best part was, the hotel allows pets, so my beloved Scottish Terrier could travel with us. It is not far from the main square, and the area is a lovely historical setting. The service is good. We were there over the Chirstmas holidays and they called around to find us a restaurant. Very helpful.

    It was situated in a very interesting part of Krakow and had a very homely feel although also professional. The staff were very helpful and it was very convenient being able to get a meal at any time - just like being at home!

    I have just returned from my first visit to Krackov. Hotel Ester was an excellent choice of hotel, very clean, freindly staff food was fantastic. I would highly recommend this hotel. Located in the Heart of Jewish District in Szeroka Square and next door to Aierl Restaurent (will is a must for food). Nearly all the places of interest on the Jewish walking route. Many other very good restaurents nearby, it is 100 yards to tram stop if your mobility is limited and 10-15 minute walk from main square. Also 150 yards from Jewish market square where local food and entertainment is situated. Atm located next to hotel. Checkout is 12am which is really good!!! This hotel is excellent value for money. My father and I travelled with a group and all 24 were highly complementary of the hotel and its facitities. I hope to return with my family next year dv and will definately choose this hotel again. If you choose this hotel you will not be disapointed. Booked.net had the best rates too.

    The hotel is very cosy, the only issue I would stress out being the price / quality ratio. As long as you can get a room in the interval 70 - 90 Euro / night I guess it is fine, if we talk about 130-150 then there are other superior options.

    Superb

    Location was terrific, staff outstanding and the breakfast was terrific. Though not located in the heart of the city it was central to the Jewish District and a short walk (safe neighborhood) to downtown.

    Room #20 shower drain is stopped up.
