We stayed here last week and were very happy. The hotel is only 10mins walk from the train station and about the same from the Duomo. The room we had was comfortable and had a good bathroom and a little balcony with a small table and two chairs. The breakfast was good, although there weren't so many things to choose... More

A convenient, clean, and good value hotel. The welcome was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast had sufficient variety for most tastes. We visits a restaurant around the corner, I Toscano, which we can also recommend for a tasty and expensive meal.

This hotel is possibly the worst hotel I have stayed in. Although check in was a pleasant experience it was downhill from here-on in. Firstly the lift...the most disgusting smell ever..it did not get better over 5 days. Secondly, the noise...when you can stand in the corridor and hear conversations from within nearby rooms speaks volumes for privacy. Every time... More

The Galilleo Hotel is located central to the most sight seeing places in Milan. Recommendation to nearby restaurants were spot on, as it was mostly visited by locals. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast is enough to get you going for the day. Will return and recommend the hotel for budgeted travellers which want value for money
