This is not a glamorous hotel, but our room was clean and comfortable and the artwork in hallways gave it character and charm. The roof terrace was great and the staff were very courteous and helpful. Its central location made it easy to walk to the seafront, Jaffa, the market and the many nearby cafes and restaurants. Our room was... More

This a falsely advertised HOSTEL posing as a hotel. When my husband and I pulled up our first thought was "this is not what we had in mind". It is surrounded by graffitied buildings, and they fail to mention it is situated on top of a bar! So we decide to check it out inside anyway. When the front staff... More

We stayed at Galileo for the first three nights of our honeymoon in Israel. The first room we were assigned with the spa bath didn't look too good. We asked if we could move to a room with a shower, and they moved us without a problem. The next room was nice & clean, but just a little bit noisy.... More

Booked the this hotel based upon combination of the reviews of other travellers and the rate. If the room was not pre paid, I would have immediately left and found another hotel. The hotel has no elevator so be prepared to lug all your luggage up several twisting flights of stairs on old musty carpeting. The room we stayed in... More

I've never before given a "hotel" a terrible rating, and I've stayed in at least a hundred hotels worldwide over the past ten years. I have no idea how this property even qualifies as a hotel. It's a tiny dive in one of the least appealing neighborhoods of Tel Aviv, with the bare minimum of amenities. It should be labeled... More

Pros: -This little hotel can be hard to be found but it's in the center of Tel Aviv. -Restaurants and bars are plenty in the neighborhood. The beach is 10 mins walking. -I stay for over a week in April and the service was good. The receptionists are friendly, the room is clean. -The wifi is stable, the rooftop is... More

I booked this hotel last moment for the period of April 9 - 15 and did not actually found out that this was going to be the holidays time. It is small, only 11 rooms. My room was good and housekeeping did their work perfectly, everything was replenished on the daily basis. The walls are thin and do not actually... More

After extensive research there was no price difference between this mini hotel and a hostel room in this costly city. I was more than satisfied with our room which was clean, well equipped with a fridge, kettle and comp. tea coffee. We had fresh sheets and towels each day and the room had air con too. The roof terrace is... More

First time in tel aviv, and this seems to be the most active area for stuff so the location is good. Staff are happy to chat. Room is clean and comfortable. Walls are thin but this doesn't bother me. Bar directly underneath hotel has good music but 65NIS for a cognac was more than I had expected.

We only needed a hotel for two nights and wanted to keep costs down. After extensive comparisons of similar hotels and Airbnb properties, we chose Galileo and were not disappointed. Location is a short walk to the beach and is located in a pretty central area. Our room was overlooking the front street which was a bit loud because of... More
