If what are looking for is somewhere comfortable to rest your head at night then hotel Galileo is a good choice. It doesn't pretend to be something it's not. There is no pomp and circumstance but my wife and I were made to feel right at home from the moment we checked in. The room was a comfortable size and... More

Stayed briefly at Hotel Galileo. The room was small and old compared to other hotels in the area. There was this weird smell filled in the room. Bathroom was useable, except with some mold on the walls. The hotel provides breakfast, but all you can get was basic cold food. They even charge you money for hot water. The receptionist... More

When we booked our recent holiday to Italy for the three of us we were informed that this is a 3 star hotel. When we arrived here and opened the door to our room we were somewhat shocked to discover that there really wasn't enough room to swing a cat, the room consisted of three single beds and there was...

Lovely hotel in a nice area of Rome. Our room was basic and simple, but very clean and we had everything we needed. Only a 5 minutes walk to termini rail station (where you can take train or bus to/from airport) and the metro station making it really easy to get to places such as the colosseum or Vatican City....

Very good location, staff was extremely friendly and helpful/knowledgeable about tourism. Rooms were decent size double rooms. Breakfast was a healthy spread and we could even use the patio to enjoy our self made dinner and drinks. Near local shopping centre, hop on/off bus route and Central Train Station.

The Hotel was nice and clean. Staff was really good and helpful. Breakfast has a good variety of both Hot and Cold food. Location was really convenient as it was 2 minutes walk to Castro Pretorio metro station and there was a Supermarket on the same road. Hotel has a lift and good wifi.

The hotel was near Termini and it was rather easy to find. The staff was very nice and helpful. Wifi worked well in our room. The supermarket was near the hotel which was major plus. The breakfast was similar as normally in 3 star hotels in Italy; bread, cheese, sausage, yougurt, cerials, boiled eggs, some fruits etc. The only minus... More

Located close to the Main station and metro (10 mins walk). Decent Rooms although a bit small. Very helpful front office staff. Breakfast was also good with good choices. However, although situated in the Embassies area streets outside very not clean. We found garbage never picked up even once during our stay.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
