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

Pretty good for the price: We paid £35 a night for two of us, included decent breakfast, high up room which was spacious and clean. Reception was helpful and helped us sort any issues. Would stay again. Area is safe but nothing special, however termini station, metro and airport bus were very close by and convenient.

For what was rated a 3 star hotel we could not have been happier with our stay. The staff were very friendly from the start to the finish and were able to have a laugh with them. We stayed there on 2 separate occasions about 2 weeks apart. On our second visit the staff welcomed us back like we were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for a friends 50th. Although the rooms are small (but you're in Rome!!) they are VERY clean and bathrooms sparkling. Service is very, very good. The front desk staff couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast is usual continental fare but sets you up for the day. Hotel is located a maximum 10 minutes from the train... More

We stayed here for three nights which is enough to see Rome. It was only a few minutes walk to the main train station which was useful but quite a walk to the attractions when you are going there and back every day! It can be very tiring in the heat. When we arrived at the hotel, the man on... More

A group of 20 stayed four nights. Rooms were clean, air conditioner was so-so. Breakfast was good. Located closed to subway terminal but in a less than desirable location. Most if the staff was helpful and welcoming.

Good location near termini for buses, trains and metro. Buses to all main attractions. Hotel rooms well equipped, nice bathroom, very clean. Beds made each day and change of towels. Very helpful staff. Good choice of breakfast. Book direct with hotel to get best rates.airport bus drops off a few metres from hotel.

My mom and aunt went to Rome for the weekend. Unfortunately for me, this is the weekend of Mothersday. I asked the hotel to make an extra effort for a surprise breakfast in their room on Mothersday. The staff told me that this wasn't going to be any problem, and I didn't have to pay additional costs. Great service, very... More

Close to the subway station. It was like this hotel was built a week before we got there. Everything looked so new and the hotel was very nicely designed. Staff was friendly and breakfast was delicious and varied. A perfect stay for a beautiful trip to Rome!
