I was looking for a hotel for a 3 night stay, that would allow me to go walking to the ski center up in Cerro Catedral. Hotel Galileo ended up being a very suitable place, where everything is well organized and austere. You don't need more than that, a nicely set up with very friendly service.

We spent a few nights at Christmas at Galileo, and absolutely loved everything about this place! It is in a perfect location, away from the busy Bariloche, set under beautiful mountains in Cerro Cathedral. The tiny ski town was awesome in the off season. A great hike to refugio Frey starts right around the corner from the hotel. The rooms... More

This hotel is the perfect option for those who want to be close to the mountain (5 minutes walk). It has everything that is needed: service is perfect, rooms are spacious, with nice living room and kitchen. We really enjoyed our stay.

The place is OK. Not bad.
