We had this hotel over an all in City Trip and saw some reviews... However, after using so much hotels for my work, I know a thing or two. And this is a three star hotel and it lives up to that standard. Rooms are reasonable clean, every things works (need some trick with the A/C and had to wait... More

Hotel Galileo is located in a good location but not so perfect one. Yes it is near the Roma Termini train station but it's quite far from the sights to see. Although they say Roma Termini is close to the hotel, still it is about 10 minutes walk w/c was tiring. Lots of supermarkets nearby the hotel w/c was a... More

At a stones throw from Roma Termini and a metro station it offers a wonderful location ... Lots of eating joints and cafe nearby. Try... More

Stayed 3 nights as an interim measure before joining an organised tour. Room was sparce, bed was comfortable and shower too small for an average size person. The mini bar was useless, sure it heated items not kept them cold. The breakfast selection was fine but times were inflexible. To have access to a tea, coffee or cold water outside... More

Stayed for three nights, 5 of us in two rooms. Basic hotel rooms, but at least a good size bathroom compared to other places we stayed. Both rooms got a free bottle of wine, which was lovely. The staff were wonderful, very helpful with any enquiry we had regarding how to get places around Rome. Breakfast was supplied in our... More

Visited with my 2 daughters for a 5 night stay. Booked superior triple room which came with free wine (they disputed this despite it being on my printed voucher). Enquired about balcony or bath and was laughed at and told that no....this was my room. It was a nice enough room so made do. Breakfast was very basic. Tinned fruit..cereal...bread....cheese....

We had a very pleasant 4 night stay at hotel Galileo. It has the perfect location just 5 minutes away from Termini station, another 5 minutes walk to Castro Pretorio metro station (line B) and 10 min to Termini metro station (line A). The rooms are small but nicely decorated with new furniture and quiet enough. Although the breakfast was... More

A four night stay in the eternal city at Hotel Galileo was a very enjoyable experience, we found all the staff to be really friendly and very helpful, particularly the reception who passed on several tips on where we could eat and drink locally without paying a fortune and those tips were spot on. Location wise, not a problem for... More

We stayed here in May 2015 for 4 nights with a group of friends (5 couples). The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming upon our arrival. The rooms were clean and well presented although we had shower only - no bath. Air-con in all rooms. There is a pleasant roof-top terrace were you can relax in the evening with... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
