My husband and I stayed at Hotel Galileo during our 2 night stay in Florence in mid Dec 2006. The hotel was further from the main train station than I expected (8 minutes walk) but it was a good hotel. The room was clean, of an adequate size and with a wonderful shower. It was not as noisy as what... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and found it very comfortable. It is in a good location for walking to all of the Florence sights, it is very clean, there is plenty of very hot water. Our room was a good size with plenty of space for lots of luggage. There is nothing fancy about this hotel but it... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in March. Would recommend this hotel as it is central and close to the main station. Good value for money. A short walk to the sights. Don't miss the main meat and veg market close by, interesting stuff and cheaper than the other shops. Especially the huge olives and strawberries! Also go up the hill... More

We stayed here for half of our two week vacation to Italy in 2004 and LOVED it! The room was lovely, the bath was spacious (for European hotels), the staff was most helpful and it is located very close to many of the top sites. We walked everywhere--the city is MOST navigatable on foot and we found that the walking... More

Our three nights here were thoroughly enjoyable. Benefits included a modern lift, huge luxurious bathroom, big bedroom with double glazing insuring quality sleep, nice breakfast room and helpful English-speaking staff. The location was perfect for walking to the major tourist attractions like the Uffizi, Duomo, Palazzo del Bargello, Galleria dell'Accademia, markets, restaurants and the Santa Maria Novella railway station. We... More

This was the absolute best hotel we stayed in during our honeymoon in Italy. The concierge, and front desk staff were always very pleasant and helpful. The man working the night shift always would talk to me and my husband when we would come in for the night. We stayed in the lobby one night for 2 hours after we... More

We weren't very happy with this hotel. It is located close to the main attractions and the train station but on the wrong side of town -- the less salubrious part of Florence. The room was okay but smelled funky and the staff were disinterested in helping. I wouldn't recommend it.

Hotel was in a good spot, close to the train station and close to the main sites. Hotel rooms were quite large and very comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A good hotel if you are looking at staying in Florence.
