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

Great hotel for the price, superb breakfast and bedrooms! Near Termini station. Next time I'll go to Rome I'll return here! It is in a really quiet zone of Rome, near the ambassades. I really enjoyed the hotel! Great staff too!

We stayed here on three separate occasions. It is on a one way street approx. 10 mins walk from the main termini. If you take a taxi, it should only cost around 5-6 euro from the station...don't get ripped off by taxi's with no meters. We got a very friendly welcome from the reception staff, the room was nice, the... More

The hotel is just 5 minutes walk from Roma Termini Stazione. The rooms are neat and spacious and the bathrooms are clean. Conad Supermart is just around the corner. . Hotel's staff are nice, helpful and very friendly. The cold breakfast being served are good enough for us. We stayed in the 3rd floor which is pretty quiet but the... More

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

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

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.
