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

This one was the best: friendly staff, clean, comfortable rooms, really good prices. If i will come to Florence...

Truly. Every time we opened the one armoire in the room, one or two moths flew out. At least my kids sort of enjoyed chasing them down. I just hoped we wouldn't bring any home with us. Although a good location, close to the train station and the fantastic Mercato Centrale, it was almost impossible to find. In part that's...
