Nice located hotel. Near tram and metro with a drugstore and a couple of stores just a few steps away. The room was small but all we needed. Very clean with new bathroom. The breakfast buffet is OK, but lacks variety. Overall is a great option!!! I would recommend it!!!.

I wouldn´t actually rate this hotel a four star hoitel but the room was neat and clean. The location was ok - you could walk to the main attractions. Also the restaurant near by were a little more inexpensive!!!

The breakfest was nice and the hotel staff spoke English ok.

This is the first place I have stayed at where the Tripadvisor Reviews did not match the hotel.

Without going into too much detail it's not a great choice. It's noisy (stone floors throughout so you can hear the cleaning staff two floors up and two floors below), rooms are sparse (like a hand-held shower - Come on!) and far too hot.

When you're woken at 6am to the sound of footsteps all around, beds being dragged across floors, echoed voices in surround sound and a mouth reminiscent of a cement mixer then you know it's time to leave.

Granted, they were accommodating to my request to move, getting me a room in their sister hotel The Caesar Palace (a 4-Star Deluxe no less), which was equal in it;s annoyance, this time with the cleaning staff cupboard/tea room/amusement arcade next to my room.

Oh, and if it's a King Size bed you want, forget it. Don't we all love two single beds pulled together to make it look like a double only to find ourselves partly dangling between the two at a ridiculous hour. Two single beds put together is a European thing. What's it all about? Why?

A tent perched somewhere in the middle on Wenceslas Square would make for an equally peaceful stay.

On the plus side it was inexpensive. There was also a bed (well, two), a roof and running water. On the downside it was in nobody's book a 4 star, it was noisy and to top it off the coffee at breakfast was beyond terrible.

I had a great time though. Prague rocks.

We arrived just before lunch on Thursday 1st October for a three night stay. This was our first trip to this lovely city. On arrival the young lady behind reception checked to see if our room was ready (check-in being 2pm),to our surprise it was,and what a lovely room. Firstly the room was very clean, beautifully furnished and very spacious. The toilet and shower room were spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. A good start we thought. A hotel should be judged on all aspects however ,and not just if it was tastefully decorated. In regard to the Hotel Galileo we can not speak highly enough of all the services it had to offer. From the more than adequate continental breakfast we had each morning to its perfect location we would recommend this hotel to anyone on any budget. So to finish off I would just like to thank everone connected with the Hotel Galileo for making our trip to Prague very special.

Stayed for three nights in August - got a good rate via Expedia. No more than 10 minutes walk from the nearest Metro and about 15 to the central area. Room was a good size with a very comfortable bed and air-conditioned and quiet. Plenty to eat for breakfast with a reasonable range. Internet access available free in the foyer. Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants nearby - much cheaper to eat in Prague than in the Eurozone. £1 for 75 minutes on public transport is a bargain. Would happily stay there again.

We arrived at the Galileo to be told the hotel was overbooked and I was being moved to their sister hotel, the Hotel Roma, on the other side of the river in the old town. We were not happy. But the kind receptionist paid for our taxi and gave us a complimentary drink (based on the drink prices in Prague that is quite generous). I am concerned Expedia are using the Galileo's high place on Trip Advisor to create sales of it's sister hotels that are further down the Trip Advisor listings. I may be being cynical but it wouldn't surprise me. I have had a similar experience in Amsterdam also.

Nevertheless, the Hotel Roma was "OK" but the location was much better than the Galileo. I would book the Roma if I went back just for the Location (in the old town, near a tram stop, near the river, Charles Bridge and the Castle).

We chose this hotel because of the excellent reviews and high rating it got on Trip Advisor - and it turned out to be a good choice, knowing nothing about Prague or the different areas in the town before we went. We were also very impressed to see that every review had obviously been read by the hotel and comments had been left in return - particulary when guests were not happy.
The hotel is in a quiet area about 15 minutes walk from Wenceslas Square which for us was ideal. The walk down to town every morning after breakfast was very pleasant and it can be varied taking a number of different streets - all with interesting shops and buildings. We only used the downtown tram one day to get to the Castle - number 22 (the tourist tram) direct from IP Pavlova Station (8 mins away) - but used the uptown tram to return every day as the walk back up from town after a long day on foot was arduous. The closest tram stop is literally 2 minutes on the level from the front door.
The hotel as we expected was very quiet and impecably clean and well maintained.
The room we were given was exceptional for the price. It was actually an apartment with a large lounge/kitchen/dining area, hallway with wardrobes, shower room/toilet and large bedroom. It extended from front to back of the hotel and although basic was ideal for our four night stay. Probably one of the best rooms we have had anywhere.
The windows in the rooms are all well sound proofed from the road - although it was nice to here the trams in the evening and morning with the windows open.
There were a couple of things wrong with the room - air con didn't work properly for example - but in September that was not a problem, and we expected tea and coffee facilities but only got a kettle with cups. On the plus side there is a good safe in room for small valuables which is really easy to use, the beds and pillows are very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean.
The breakfast was basic but well presented and adequate - I guess variety, which was limited, is not a problem as most people only stay for a few nights - and the breakfast room was again very clean.
The main hotel lobby, lounge and bar are small but adequate (never very crowded when we were there) and there is free internet access so that made checking tram routes and checking in for the return flight very easy. The reception staff were also always friendly and obliging.
The local area is generally residential with a few offices and shops - but with some very good restaurants and bars - where you don't pay town centre prices. You literally only have to go 50 yards from the hotel to get a good variety of good quality food and drink in three or four bars and restaurants - all of which were closed shortly after 11 pm so no late night noise either. Try the french restaurant on the corner by the hotel - a little more expensive but not greatly so and very good food and wine.
