Hotel molto carino, pulitissimo in tutti gli ambienti. La stanza ero un po piccola ma ben arredata con un bel bagno. Molto bella la sala relax dove di mattina servono un'ottima colazione si continentale che english breakfast. Per finire ottimo lo staff di giovani portoghesi! Non so il prezzo dato che ero spesato dall'azienda.

Very cosy and clean hotel....the room was just a bit small, but the design bathroom was really nice. There is a confortable living room where in the morning it's served a great continental and full english breakfast. Last but not least, the portougese staff was very nice and friendly. I don't know about the money value because I was a guest of my company. Excellent.

I visited the Galaxie Hotel with a friend and we paid £100 each for 2 'single' rooms, albeit they each had a double bed. My room was excellent (if perhaps geared up for a male not a female as nowhere well lit to put on make up) and the hotel is great (well decorated,light and airy), and the staff are great too. However we arrived for breakfast at 8.45am and although we were offered endless refills of excellent coffee,by friendly and attentive staff, by 8.45am the cooked breakfast was extremely depleted. All that remained was a few rashers of bacon, scrambled egg, half a tomato and a sausage - not wonderful and no offer to replenish. However I would visit again and the parking is a real bonus. If only the Galaxie had a licence as a pre-dinner drink in the wonderful conservatory before going out for dinner (or a drink on returning from dinner) would make it almost perfect and would bring into use a room which is too lovely to only use for breakfast.

Good for start to finish. Everything about this hotel is charming. The hotel has a bright and modern decor, with a lovely breakfast room overlooking the garden at the back of the hotel. The staff are friendly and more than helpful. Good range of food on offer at breakfast. Well worth a look at...

The hotel offers free parking, is about 15 minutes walk from the Centre of town, the rooms are clean albeit small and the hotel staff are really helpful.
We paid for a double room, only to find that there were two single beds pushed together with a double mattress topped placed over the top. The beds parted durning the night and had to be pushed back together several times, not a great night sleep at all

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel has parking facilities and is a good 25 minute walk from Oxford City Centre, but if you take the park/river route it is a pleasant walk.

Good selection of local shops, restaurants and a pub (which serves really good fresh food) in Summertown.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room decor is contemporary and although on the small side it was exceptionally clean. We stayed in a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking the Banbury road, so was quite noisy due to traffic.

The breakfast quality and choice was very good.

As my usual hotel chain couldn't accommodate me I took a chance on this hotel I found through a web site. It was easy to find and had an acceptable selection of places to eat close by (though the main street of Summertown was a little disappointing in its selection considering its obviously affluent catchment area). The hotel seems to be nearing the end of a major refurbishment and is in very good order although, like many smaller, independent hotels, it seems that no one actually considers how a guest will lie in bed and operate the lights. For example a lot of money had been spent on a new false ceiling with modern spotlights but the bedside lighting was odd to say the least. The bathroom radiator was dangerously hot but the management were quick to respond to the problem. Car parking arrangements were very good. This was a welcoming and comfortable place to stay and I would certainly return. Somebody is making a real effort here. Thank you.
