We stayed here with a small group of students who had just finished their final exams. The rooms, facilities and included breakfasts were of 4 star standard. The location is excellent - close to all major attractions and train station. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

The Galileo Hotel Via Nazionale 22A 50123 Firenze Disappointment Located close to Stazione Centrale, S M Novella (Florence Central Railway Station), with walking time of about 10 mins. Close to it is the central attraction of Florence, S Maria Del Fiore (Duomo). Except for the location , nothing much can be written about the hotel. The interiors appeared to be... More

We stayed at Hotel Galileo over the past four days and loved it. The hotel is ideally located within a five minute walk from the train station and the city centre so no need for long walks to get to any of the amazing restaurants or sights that Florence has to offer. The hotel is very quaint and typically Italian.... More

The rooms were clean an comfortable but small. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and all sights. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, good breakfast in the morning. Good value for the money and would stay again when in Florence.

This was my 1st solo visit to Florence and I needed a place to overnight. When my taxi stopped outside the hotel I initially had some reservations about the area but once I entered I was pleasantly surprised. The check in was prompt and the man on duty spoke English and offered me a city map and explained the surroundings.... More

The hotel has an old world charm to it and is pretty cute. The rooms were a decent size, but the bed wasn't the most comfortable. It wasn't bad and I slept fine, but I've been comfier. The breakfast was okay, there weren't a ton of options. I don't eat a lot for breakfast, but if you have a big... More

Central location, clean and reasonably comfortable. Breakfast just average but reception staff absolutely outstanding! So handy for the Central Market and Palazzo Medici Ricardi. Also within walking distance to the train station and Teatro Del Sale. Any query was met with friendliness and efficiency. We had all our tours booked within minutes.

This was my first ever European trip and did not have anything to compare as far as European hotels. The location was wonderful, it is close to everything in Florance. We stayed in a double room and quarters were very cozy. 2 single beds pushed together and no room to separate them. Thankfully my roommate and I got along well... More

Excellent location in central Florence. The staff are all very friendly and give great service. When we arrived they even went over a map of Florence with us, telling us of the best places to visit, best places to eat and drink etc. The hotel is very quaint, with lots of traditional Italian furnishings and all the communal areas are...

Well located hotel. Near the central market. Very nice reception staff. The only minor problem was that the airconditioning was programmed & not adjustable in the room. The breakfast was nice and we were able to reserve cooking classes, taxis & restaurants at the desk.
