This is an older small hotel. It is cheap but the staff are helpful and friendly. A good 10-15mins walk to main attractions but an easy walk. Near the train station, about 10mins. Not worth a taxi if your physically well, but it can be tricky to find as the internet map has it marked wrong. Head for the American cafe and ya just 10meters up from there!

We stayed for 3 nights in a Quadruple room. The room was fairly dimly lit but spacious. The beds were fine but the aircon didn't feel like aircon and was more like cold air. There was a large cupboard in the room but not loads of storage space. Luckily we weren't staying that long. The breakfast was good and a wide variety of cereals and ham and cheese and bread etc. There wasn't much seating room so it must get packed when they are fully booked. The location was good walking distance from Florence Train station and close to the main sights. There are also supermarkets nearby which is nice. Would return again purely for the location and price.

The positives of this hotel are: •Comfortable bed with good linen •Nice towels •Very quiet and dark (our window opened to the pipes and conduit of the next building over, less than a meter away). •There were two nice staff who were friendly and helpful. The others seemed a bit blasé (understandably, I guess!) •Consistent aircon which wasn’t too loud or cold. •Close to Mercato Centrale, which was fabulous for food and drinks and people watching. On the downside: •In a seedy area, drunks passed out near hotel entrance, dodgy types all around. •Some terrible cafes and restaurants in close proximity. •Very disappointing breakfast selection with possibly the worst coffee I’ve ever tasted. We didn’t bother eating here after the first morning. •Whilst comfortable, the bed was two single beds side by side, which slipped easily across the floor. •Dirty and dated, shower pressure and temp was good but dingy and dark, with gross shower curtain. •Extremely loud buzzing for entry into the room - think prison cell style. We are pretty positive people and like to make the most of our short time together, so we definitely made light of the situation and had a lot of good laughs 😂 A bit of comedic imagination can do wonders 😂 We would definitely not stay here again, though.

This hotel is very good value. Very close to the city centre, clean and the staff are very helpful. Our room was on the first floor and facing Via Nazionale and indeed it was noisy, I do not understand it, because I think it had double windows, but still, I could hear the traffic. And I am a bit hard of hearing, so I do not usually complain about the noise. Nonetheless, for the price, I think it was a great deal.

Last minute changes to your itinerary are often challenging, if not impossible! Changing our destination to include Florence, we scrambled to find a hotel. After calling a couple of hotels listed in a guide book, we found a room at the Galileo. Likely much more grand in the past, everything about our stay was satisfactory. The hotel staff was very welcoming and very helpful. They offered to store luggage if you arrive before check-in or hold after check-out time. The desk manager helped us with train schedules, provided maps and directions. All of the staff was very accommodating and friendly. Our room was clean and everything in the bathroom was in working order. Breakfasts were buffet-style and included all of the usuals, coffees, teas, meats, cheeses, pastries/breads, cereals, etc. The hotel has an elevator and is only a few blocks from the train station. The Duomo was an easy walk, perhaps 4 blocks, one turn and a couple more blocks to it and the Campanile (bell tower). There are places to eat near the hotel and a small convenience store en route to the Duomo. I've noticed some negative reviews, but our experience was in line with most 2-3 star hotels in Europe.
