We booked through bookings.com after hesitaing quite often on where and what sort of hotel we were going to book. This was our final destination on our southern Europe travel. Why this hotel stood out for us was due to staff, the boss explained upon check on what to see during our 3 day trip. This explanation took 1/2 hour... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and if I ever return to Rome I will certainly book a room in this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, breakfast is simple but good. There is a nice terrace outside which is a perfect place to relax and take a break from the busy... More

This was our second visit and I would not hesitate to book again. The Galileo is a comfortable hotel, and the staff could not have been more helpful. From booking taxis to advice on getting around they went out of their way to assist. The room was comfortable and was serviced every day. The breakfast room was clean and bright... More

My friend and I spent 4 nights in Hotel Galileo in early Feb 2015. The Good Points: The room was clean and pleasantly furnished. Location is excellent - we walked everywhere we needed to go to visit the city sights. Breakfast was fine (cold meats, cheese, cereals, yoghurt, breads, etc) and runs until 10:00am, so you can have a bit... More

Nice hotel just right Piazza dell'Indipendenza (2 min walk) with a very comfortable connection to Roma Ciampino Airport by the shuttle bus. The hotel is poorly signed but is located in a very safe and quiet area, near embassies. We had a room on the top floor with a wonderful terrace (joined to the main terrace, which was fortunately closed... More

2 girlfriends and I booked a European excursion to London,Cannes and Rome. This was our last stop and we booked this hotel for 3 nights. It's in walking distance to the termini train station which was very convenient and contains buses and trains to virtually every part of Italy. You can also catch the hop on/ hop off tour bus...

I stayed in a triplet room during the christmas holiday. The room is beautiful and clean, as well as the bathroom. They clean the room and change the toiletries everyday. The location of hotel is ok...but not that close to termini. There are other cheaper hotels just next to termini, however this hotel's area is more quiet and cleaner. But,... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
