Very decent 3star, great price to quality ratio. Convenient location - close to the train station and walking distance to the hip on hop off bus terminal stop and most sightseen places. Full-sized room and bathroom, Good breakfast. Highly recommend, would stay again.

We spent ohne Night in Florence and had a Double room in the Galileo Hotel. Staff was extremely friendly, room was super clean and comfortable, parking was easy around the corners as it was weekend - overall great stay in this small but sweet Hotel.

We found this hotel with a help of TripAdvisor. It was late, we were tired, our BIG mistake was to go to Florence by the car. Never do this :) Tried several hotels in a range of 2 miles city center. 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...

Our travel agent recommended this for us. Our room was small, so small one cannot sit at the desk while another walks between the person at the desk and the bed. The bathroom has no counter space. Wifi is free, but it can come and go. The beds are comfortable. The fridge is small and keeps things cool, not cold....

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...
