Our tour operator Cox & Kings booked our accommodation on 13th July 2015 and we stayed in room 247. We kept bags in the hotel room,went down for dinner and realised that our jewellery kept in bags was stolen. From the reaction of staff we got the impression that stealing from hotel rooms was a routine practised to perfection by... More

I think it is just OK for a day. I have two questions to the Hotel management. Why is the door in the ground floor outside the lift area locked in the night? what exactly are you hinting at by locking it and not telling us an alternative route to go to Lobby ? second question: if I make a... More

Is a decent budget hotel on a high way about 2 hours drive from Rome is suitable only for group travellers with own transport or indudival transport. Still rooms are good with reasonably good breakfast.

I have rewritten my review because the manager was really unhappy and angry and accused me of having anxiety issues. I agree that some of my statements needed to be clarified and that one r two issues were not the hotels fault. We arrived at the hotel at 9pm having had nothing to eat all day and also having been...

Gallorini, Proprietario at Galileo Palace Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Madame, responding to your last revised comment: - It isn’t our fault if you wanted to stay in Florence and you booked in Arezzo - No dinner has been booked by your agency; anyway you could have moved in a restaurant nearby with your own private transportation if you wanted something to eat - The hotel does not close,...

We had a nightmare stay at the AC Arezzo, and when we returned to Arezzo a few days later we decided to give the Galileo Palace a try. The setting is rather unpreposessing, and the locations in 'Google Maps' seem to have this hotel located somewhere else. The rooms are a little gloomy, and the carpets and floors in the... More

We stayed her for one night, because we were double booked in Casa Portagioia and could not stay there. That might be the reason we were not that impressed with this hotel, we were not in a good state of mind. The hotel was ok, nothing special. You have to have a car to stay here, as it is not...

Very convenient if you are exploring Umbria and Tuscany. The hotel has good parking and it is easy to be found if you are using a GPS. Front desk staff is very helpful. It is a short drive to a few dinner options. The restaurant beside the hotel was closed when we went there. The room is fine, but there... More

This is a neat hotel in a great location for touring the Tuscany/Umbria Regions of Italy. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is very clean and the continental breakfast is delightful. Great value for the money.

There's a prior review here that calls this hotel "horrible", and we ignored it. But they were right about a couple of things; there's no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby, and it's way way away from anything. Other than that, the deluxe room is very attractive but somewhat small and the minibar has a couple of waters... More
