Very friendly staff who are always willing to help with any information we needed. They were always willing to supply us with what we needed! Even some tea at night! This hotel is walking distance from the train station and from the central markets and museums. A great little hotel!

I chose this hotel because of its location near the train station. The hotel had cute rustic charm. Being in the heart of the city it wasn't really very peaceful but didn't made a big difference. After sightseeing for the entire day I anyway slept like a log. Room was clean.

2 nights at The Galileo Hotel. Our room was quite large and airy and the decor was cute. Upon checking in we were given discount vouchers to 2 restaurants in the area. We went to both over our 2 nights there and found them both to be great recommendations. The shower was a little difficult as it was hand-held and...

This hotel is in a great spot. It's close to markets 3 minutes away, the academia gallery and duomo are also close by and if don't mind about a little extra walking only 10/15 minutes away from the main shopping streets. Also close is a supermarket, laundromat, lots of restaurants and buses and trains. Although it is quite and older...

Breakfast basic continental with adequate choice , not much room to move when busy.Easy...

Very disappointed. We would not have rated this hotel 3 stars. The bed was hard, the pillows were hard, the water to the room was very smelly and a communal toilet abutting our room may as well have been inside our room. The noise from the street outside was all encompassing (air conditioning was off and needed the window open...

The hotel was maybe a 2-star hotel. Room was small and the sink leaked in the bathroom. No screen in window, so when the cleaning staff left the window open, I came back to flies buzzing around the room. When asked for assistance at the front desk or in their breakfast lobby, the staff were not helpful and very unpleasant.

The Hotel is a fairly easy walk from the train station, even with my large luggage in tow. Very clean and the front desk staff spoke enough English to make the stay much more enjoyable. They were able to recommend great places to dine and gave great directions. Close to the open market for your shopping needs. A definite stay...

Firstly, the reason we decided to book this hotel was for it's excellent reviews on the location, which was great. However, there are a huge amount of hotels within this area which will be of similar price. The hotel is small, typical Italian decor. Breakfast was fine, nothing amazing. Only had a small selection of cereals, croissants and toast. Staff...
