We stayed 6 nights in early September. The skiing wasn't great but the Galileo was. After a day's skiing, or walking in the rain and snow, the under floor heating was very welcome. Breakfasts delivered to the room were good quality and there was no problem changing the order. Dinner was a highlight, good food simply cooked with wine from... More

My son and I spent four nights here in August 2013. I cannot say enough great things about this little gem! The staff were beyond belief in terms of how patient and helpful they were - suggestions for where to eat, what to do, how to make the most of our time. And the hotel itself was cozy (and not...

My wife and I stayed here late June for five nights. The floors in their rooms are heated, and the spa was nice. Fittings inside are new and modern looking and the room was clean. I did have to ask for the floor heating to be turned up (which they were happy to do) as when we used the fireplace... More

A really nice place in Catedral - so, close to the mountains for skiing and easy access to town, but far enough away to not be caught in the bustle of the ski resort. Awesome big apartment with all the required facilities.

Thank you for your sincere words. The hotel is located very close to the ski slopes and the first ski lift. We have however a 4-wheel drive to drive our guests early in the morning to the resort and back in the afternoon, when tired after a great ski day! We would love to see you again next year. Don´t...

Great Hotel, with excellent localization (500 meters away from Cerro Catedral entrance). The front desk is always very helpful. Downsides, #1 english (as always in Argentina) is not spoken by everyone and #2 the breakfast has time to be served and you can only have it in your apartment. The latter downside is more important by those who want to... More

Thank you very much for your kind words. As you point out, english at Galileo is spoken by all the front desk and restaurant staff, as well as Portuguese. Being you brazilian, I am confused by your observation.. During winter we have extended breakfast delivery hours from 7 through 10.30 am. We serve breakfast in the dinning facilities at every...

Around 300 metres from the lift base, but the hotel will shuttle you in the mornings (and probably in the afternoons....but we always walked back) First night we had an opportuniity to join the astronomer in the sky observatory.

Thanks for your review! We are very glad you were able to enjoy your stay, the astronomer´s visit and your corner jacuzzi! All our studio rooms have small kitchen facilities as yours and the rest have bigger fridges and kitchens, though couples hardly use them, families with children tend to use them some more.

My husband and I went for a ski trip!! It was steps away from Cerro Catedral. Excellent staff. The rooms were nice and clean. You will need taxi or car rental to go to the city.

Thank you very much for your comments. Galileo is as you said located just outside the ski slopes. You get to see them from your window. We do encourage our future guests to contact us with flight information so we can program an airport pick up transfer. During ski season many restaurants are open in day and nightime meters away...
