This hotel was the best one we had stayed at in Italy. The hotel is neat, pretty and clean. The receptionist Francesca is a honey and she was so helpful with anything we asked her, even with helping track down my lost luggage. The other receptionist (a young asian guy) was also very friendly and helpful. There's a guest computer... More

They gave us the room for the handicapped. It was spacious but so dimly lighted we could hardly see to read anything or do anything easily. The bathroom was very large and adequate. The windows looked out on the piping area so there was only enough light to let in that showed whether it was day or night. The air... More

The Galileo Hotel in Florence is close to train station and San Lorenzo outdoor market. It is about 5 minute walk to everything. The rooms are abit small, but enough room for the amount of time you are in them. The breakfast could use some fruit, but is enough. I enjoy talking to the staff, Gorigo is the best! I... More

The main advantage of this hotel is it's close proximity to the main train station, which is about a five minute walk away. The property is well maintained and rooms were comfortable and reasonably priced. When we were there it was quite hot but the air conditioning wasn't working -- something about a filter requiring changing which I couldn't quite... More

My mom and I were greeted warmly by the hotel staff, they carried our bags, showed us around our room and it was great. But then we realized there was a lot of street noise and that would be a problem. We called the front desk and were told someone would be up soon. A few minutes later, there was... More

I stayed at the Galileo Hotel for 3 nights. After many travel plans going wrong I needed an additional 4 nights. Though they were completely booked the amazing man at the front desk, Vincenzo, found a way to extend my stay for one night and then personally called several hotels with the same price range to find me a place...

The hotel is really close to the station and a really good spot to get to the main attractions in Florence, we stayed in a double room, which was clean and comfortable.

The room was booked by a travel agency. Had to be moved three times because the rooms were dirty--mold & mildew in bath, dust & cobwebs on walls and ceiling, linens old and holey, mattress with buttons had no pad mattress pad, etc. The desk staff was young, inexperienced and unprofessional.
