It is a central little hotel, good for just sleeping, as there is no breakfast. It could do with a refit, but it is still on the whole a positive experience to stay there. Things are looking a bit tatty but they are not out and out dirty. Staff I must say are helpful and quite chilled.

The hotel appeared to be rundown and the carpet marked. However, my wife and I found the hotel to be clean, including the bath. Entry was via a sliding door. Tel Aviv is a modern vibrant city and of course the hotel's location is in an older location. We chose it for the price and to be near the Shuk... More

Very nice little hotel. Great customer service and location couldn't be better. This was our first time in Israel and we didnt know anyone and didnt know what to expect. Booked this hotel from priceline.com. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. They also have a roof deck which is very nice for relaxing or sunbathing

The hotel was exceptionally clean, is in a great location close to the beach, some great pubs (try the happy hour pub around the corner) and restaurants, the only thing was we found the girl at reception desk to be a bit rude, but we will still be staying there again soon!!!

We recently stayed at the Galileo Hotel and was welcomed by a very friendly Rima! She answered all our questions and was very helpful. The rooms were very luxurious and the rooftop-area was also very impressive! Galileo Hotel comes highly recommended!

Has a nice trendy bar downstairs (it does not belong to the hotel) . Has a nice roooftop arranged for people to stay and smoke drink etc. The twin rooms are spacious. Furniture is dated but still in good condition.Has all the facilities it should have . Location is central to Tel aviv and close enough to the beach too.

The hotel offers great value when it comes to the price and location. It is within 8 minutes walking distance from the Beach, right next to the Karmel market and very close to the shopping streets (Shenkin and Allenby) and the Night Life area around Rothschild. The rooms are pretty tiny and definetely not the best I have seen but... More

We stayed at the Galileo Hotel for 1 night only, and found it to be very comfortable. After staying at a hostel for the previous 8 nights, the Galileo felt like a 5 star hotel with little luxuries like a fridge, television and kettle in the room. And the quiet room was bliss.

Good location, 5 minutes walking to the beach, stores and restaurants nearby. Cozy room, everything is functioning OK. Beautiful roof with view to the sea. Friendly and helpful staff, speaking English and Russian. What more would you expect for your money?
