Our agent chose this one because it was both close to the train station and the city sights; in addition we were only staying one night. The staff was friendly but not helpful when we did not have hot water the night of our stay....reason given: too many guests checking in. The problem was resolved in the morning...thankfully. The room... More

We convenient location! About 10-15 min walk to the train station and everything is relatively close. The 'Italy on a budget' tours company is directly opposite for those wanting an awesome day out! (18-35 ages). The hotel has a buffet breakfast with yummy cakes, toast, cereal, coffee, juice etc (no hot food but still filling). There is an elevator and... More

The hotel itself wasn't outstanding but we didn't expect it to be for the good price we got it for. What did make it amazing was the extremely helpful and friendly member of staff there called 'Adriano'. He made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived, spoke great English and showed us exactly where to go around Florence. The... More

We are have a great stay so far. Convenient location! Easy access to central market and downtown. The breakfast isn't that great but we don't leave hungry. The staff is friendly and eager to help. The wifi isn't the greatest also but I'm sure they would work with you if you had any issues with it.

After coming from an ok stay in Rome, this place was a breath of fresh air. Friendly staff, quite rooms, location close to everything we wanted. Breakfast was modest but nice. Chocolate brownie cake was best item and the cafe latte was great (just ask the girl downstairs who will make fresh coffee for you). The only problem we had... More

Was set up by our travel agency but we were excited because it was a Rick Steves recommendation. He needs to re-review this hotel. First off the 3 front desk men were very accommodating. Room was nice and the breakfast was good. Had read a comment saying no protein but I seriously thought ham to be a protein. Really enjoyed... More

Very traditional hotel only five minutes away from the market and station. Service was brilliant and very attentive with perfect english. Breakfast was what you would expect for a small traditional hotel. Only downside was the air conditioning - went off during the night and needed staff to adjust for you. Other than that a perfect hotel for a short... More

Our experience with Hotel Galileo this past July 2014 was very pleasant. Stayed three days and did not encounter any of the problems identified in "recently" posted reviews! Rooms were clean, aircon worked well, housekeeping was done every day. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Hotel is on a busy street, but if you're in Florence for quietness you should... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and on first appearance the hotel was clean, tidy and a good location. It's close to the train station and only a 5 minute walk to a few attractions. The room was a decent size and the hotel had brochures of things to do. But it was the little things that bought it... More
