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

When plans changed due to weather, we needed a place to crash few hours after a long bus ride and before an early morning flight – Galileo Hotel was a perfect fit! Great location, easy / safe walk to waterfront, plenty of restaurants nearby. Staff at desk were very friendly, accommodating, and helpful in arranging taxi to airport. We could... More

Rather feel you couldn’t be better placed to take in Tel-Aviv than from the Galileo, the area is literally teaming with life and is the perfect base to explore from. With this in mind, the price was surprisingly low as Tel-Aviv is not known to be inexpensive. The hotel though, is due an upgrade; whilst it retains a certain charm... More

Dear Nick, Thank you for taking the time to write your review via TripAdvisor. We are happy to read that you loved the location of the hotel, and while some of the charm of the hotel is its decor, we do have plans to renovate. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best, Ilan Sturm. More

Quaint little hotel. Superb location in the heart of Tel Aviv. Room with spa bath and balcony was clean and charming. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Roof garden seems nice ,would have paid a visit , if I'd known about it. Tip: HOKA factory shop for the best running/ walking shoes is 200 metres away in Bailik St.

We had a great stay at tiny Galileo (only 12 rooms): the room was small but very cosy, clean and above all, very quiet, even though you're near the Carmel Market and the beach, bars, nightlife... In fact near everything, but in a quiet setting. Friendly staff. Good internet connection.

This is an awesome boutique hotel.It is located in hip area, 5 blocks away from the beach. The room was super clean and pretty. The bathroom is a decent size and again extremely clean.

I stayed with my boyfriend for 3 days in august, and I book at the last time because the apartment where I was supposed to stay was dirty. I was looking for a place clean, in the center of tlv (not too far from everything) and not too expensive. And finally i was not disappointed for any of these points,... More

I loved ever stay in this hotel. The service is great, rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast is amazing (you can have breakfast in a hotel around the corner). The location is the best I can imagine. Close to the Shuk, beach, clubs, shopping.

This is a large house converted to a small hotel. Single rooms with private baths. Clean enough. Has AC, but it took me a while to figure out how to operate it. Great roof patio. The surrounding neighborhood is fascinating. Walking distance to the beach, easy access to public transportation, central location relative to major sights. Friendly, helpful staff. No... More
