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

Good-ish location. Just don't go up to the park 1/2 a block away. You'll come across seedy people taking pharmaceuticals and drinking. Reception: - The old Italian guy makes you feel like you should leave as soon as you enter. The Asian immigrant workers were much more hospitable though. Internet: - It's free witch is great. Can you use it... More

Room was very clean and good space. Cool and quiet in spite of busy and hot holiday season. Facilities very good and wifi best I have come across in hotels. Breakfast fresh and adequate. Staff very helpful and friendly. Best thing is how close to centre this hotel is. Close enough to return for a shoe change or rest before... More

Location central enough but seedy district. Very basic facilities in room although good size. Very basic breakfast with narrow range of food and not enough of it. Very slippery bath. More lodging house than serviced hotel.

I booked a family member to stay here for 7 nights recently, and he couldn't say enough nice things about this hotel. Wifi had great coverage, staff very friendly and breakfast was great. Great area and located close to the station and within walking distance to main attractions. 3 star hotel and worth the price paid!

Staying in this hotel reminded me of the scene from Harry Potter when the bus had to compact itself in order to fit through the streets of London. Everything is miniature in this hotel: the rooms, the beds, the televisions, the bathrooms, the showers, the breakfast room, the elevator. Nevertheless, if you don't mind wedging yourself and your luggage into... More
