This was our 3rd stop on a 2 week tour of Italy. 10 minute walk from the main train station which has a direct link to the airport. Room was a lot smaller than our previous 3 star rooms in Venice and Florence. not a lot of storage space or any place to store cases. Access to Reception is along... More

My husband and I spent three nights here for our honeymoon. The woman at check-in was very helpful. She pointed and explained everything on a map for us from using the metro to the places to stay away from at night. The rooms were very clean and it was cute having a balcony. Only complaint might be that the walls... More

Rome was our last stop on a month long holiday around Europe, and we couldn't have had a better experience with this hotel. My boyfriend and I stayed at Galileo for 7 days. Our room was on level 3, and it was very neat and spacious...we had plenty of room to relax and make ourselves at home! It was a... More

Good location, about 10 minutes walk to the Termini station. Buses pick up like 5 minutes away. The hotel was good, nothing bad, but nothing spectacular. Pros: - Very clean - good location Cons: - all of the outside deck areas were closed for some reason - Breakfast could have used a little variety in the fruit department. We stayed... More

We stayed for one night before heading off on honeymoon. The room was large and clean. It was basic but the staff on reception were fantastic and gave us a complimentary bottle of wine to kick start our honeymoon. I would definitely stay here again!

Hotel Galileo couldn't have been better. We arrived at the hotel (exhausted after travelling all night) to a lovely man on reception. He told us a bit about the hotel, and showed us places to visit and where the main shopping parts were on the map which the hotel provides. This was really helpful for our stay. We went up... More

Enjoyed a great anniversary break in February 2014 at this small hotel 800 meters or so from the main station in a nice area. Lots of eateries and other hotels nearby. Treated with great courtesy by staff and they 'helpfully' recommended a place for our anniversary meal, the owners restaurant a couple of mile away where we were transorted for... More

First of all, I can't say anything negative about this hotel. The location is perfect! It is so close to the underground en station Termini. The receptionists were very friendly and the rooms and the hotel was well cleaned. Breakfast was easy, but everything was very fresh. The breakfast ladies were very quick with refilling the products and cleaning up... More

What a fantastic find this was. Very affordable, great location, safe area, friendly staff, clean comfy rooms, light bright airy breakfast room/sitting/bar area. On arrival we were greeted like old friends. A gorgeous girl with a beautiful smile at reception. What a great start to our stay. We were given directions to places, pointed us in the direction of a... More

I stayed at the Galileo in June while on holidays in Europe with my best friend. We arrived at the hotel late at night from the airport. We were greeted by a very rude man at reception, who looked like he wanted to be anywhere else but there. I kept a polite manner while checking in, but questioned why our... More
