A very well situated central Rome hotel. Located so that we walked to all the major tourist sites, even the Vatican, but that was a few miles! But very local to Colosseum and Spanish Steps etc. Hotel was interesting, a floor in a traditional Rome style apartment block, on a quite side street. Enter through large wooden doors into a... More

I cannot fault this lovely hotel - it is within walking distance from Termini Station and the main attractions, with the exception of The Vatican, which is perhaps a little too far (40 mins). Our room was modern, quiet and super clean - the same lady came to clean it and to change our towels and toiletries every single morning,... More

This hotel looks more like your typical mama-run family pension. It saved my life when my booked hotel failed to host me. It has all the amenities you can ask (rather big shower, clean room, efficient A/C, big window) for 90 euros a night on a Saturday evening during summer school holidays. No nonsense, fair price.

We had originally booked accomodation in Barberini in a rental apartment however after one dreadful sleepless night, we decided it was unbearable and looked for another place to stay in Rome. We were very fortunate that Hotel Galatea had availability as our stay in Rome coincided with the canonisation of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II. We stayed in... More

We were travelling with parents and our little 3 month kid. The hotel was extremely kind to give us a Suite with two separate rooms, with a door the the hallway. Okay beds, maybe to the hard side for some, but besides that it was a very good hotel for the money. The only negative thing is the breakfast, which... More

We stayed five nights in the hotel - the price-performance ratio is optimal. The room was small, cleanliness ok, nice bathroom and very friendly staff at reception. Breakfast is kontintental and sufficient. The location is very good to explore Rome by foot- when I had questions the staff at the reception always advised me well. Located in the city center,...

Except for the location, which is not bad, everything else was disappointing, attending on the value charged per night. Wifi doesn't work, breakfast is too poor, the night receptionist was rude and not helpful. The room and WC were ok.

My husband and I stayed in the Galatea for 4 nights and it was very nice. The rooms, bed and bathroom are very clean. But there's only a little bit daylight in the rooms, because the hotel is located in y backyard on the third floor. While we visited, there was a renovation next to the hotel and there were... More

I stayed in Hotel Galatea for 4 nights in February with 4 of my friends. The price was very good. The best thing about the hotel was it's location. It is really central...you can walk to nearly all the main attractions in a couple of minutes!!! And it's very close to Termini Station as well. This was perfect for us... More
