The hotel itself was difficult to find, there were no signs outside. After walking up and down the street several times I spoke to a restaurant who directed me to the Old Monarchia Restaurant and the check in desk is inside. Room itself was good. The bathroom was not well designed but the location was amazing. Short walk to the... More

Good location, big room No showercurtain causes flood in the bathrom floor. Poor cleaning No new towels after cleaning. But the price and the location makes it worth the money Many tv-channelns. CNN for example Wi-fi little shaky

The Galilei is more a guest house than a hotel. So there is no reception, but a restaurant directly at the hotel, and the nice people there take care of you. We had our own large appartments, fully equipped with each three beds, bathroom, TV (only Hungarian program and CNN), table, chairs, wardrobes - and lots of space. First positive... More

My friend and I were supposed to check in today at the Hotel Galilei and stay for two nights. However, on arrival after a waiting time of over 2 hours, we were informed that there were no rooms left, that the hotel was overbooked and that we would have to find an alternative accommodation. We never received any communication from... More

Can confirm what many others in here write: overall a bad "hotel". The "reception" solution in the restaurant was horrible, the staff down there was rude and very slow and it was a bad start on the vacation to spend almost 1 hour in that hole before we where shown the rooms. The rooms was in general in a bad... More

This is not a hotel. It's a room in a dingy building which is also occupied by residents and businesses. The 'hotel' is a restaurant that opens at 11.00 a.m. Reception is a small desk in the corner of the bar that is never manned. The room is never cleaned or the linen changed. The beds are low and bad... More

I'll keep this brief, but I could go on forever about how bad this place was. * This is not a hotel- it's more like a pension. There is no reception, you just get a key and are sent around the side. No one will clean your room etc. * The staff are the most unfriendly and unhelpful I have... More
