“Really enoyed it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

We are a British couple who stayed for a few days. The location was ideal for exploring Tel Aviv, but also served as a base to get out to the rest of Israel via buses and trains.

Much credit is due to the staff. Whomever was on duty at a given time was helpful and were only too happy to assist us with our various queries. We were made to feel most welcome.

Also these days so many hotels go for tacky modernist décor but I think the Galileo maintains a classic, cosy atmosphere which is very much to my taste.

I feel we got great value for money and would certainly go back. Another point- free WiFi which came in handy.

We can warmly recommend Galileo Hotel.

The staff were helpful, attentive and friendly They were there when needed and never hesitated to make telephone calls or check internet pages to find information concerning our inquiries. best location two blocks from the beach There are a few wonderful small restaurants in the neighbourhood

The rooms are quite simple but rather nicely decorated. And they have a table, All rooms have air condition, Coffe tea, Mini Bar.

I would not hesitate to book Galileo Hotel again.

Excellent value. A comfortable, boutique hotel in a central location. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No problems with noise. Be prepared that all rooms are up a flight of stairs and there is no elevator. Breakfast is included by way of a voucher to one of two nearby restaurants.

We passed one week at this little ( app. 10 rooms ) hotel. The rooms are basic but very comfortable ( fridge, air conditioning, tea/coffee maker, Flat-TV ), furnituring a bit old fashioned, but in very good condition! Unfortunately the fridge did not cool and my single room had no safe ). All rooms are on first floor. Second floor is a big and great roof top garden with a superb view, even to the sea. Furnitured with seats, tables. Lights can be switched on by the guests, or is done by the staff.
The reception staff is friendly and helpfull. The man for housekeeping did a good job, rooms are cleaned, towles were changed daily.
Breakfast is not served at the hotel, but guests will get a voucher for two cafés, which are serving a small breakfast ( one with toasted sandwhiches or eggs and salad + coffee / the other with one coffee and one pastry of choice ) .
In the same buidling is a small and nice beer pub ( unfortunately just serving European beers ) and one bar with life music. So it is not very quiet, even the location is a small side street.
The hotel is a bitt hidden, the adress "HillelHaZeken/Allenby" is a little bit confusing, because it is located in "HillelHaZeken", connected with a short pedestrian walkway to Allenby. ( Or take Geula Street, turn left, and first left again, hotel after app. 50 meters on right side ) .
But location superb, next to Carmel-Market, Nahalat Binyamin and Rehov Sheinkin, to beach just 5 - 8 minutes walk, close to many city hotspots, good access with public transport to bus central station.
Value for money, I think for Tel Aviv during high seasons it was okay. I surly can recommend the hotel for people, who needs not luxury comfort.
If I travel again to TLV, I defenetly will book again!!!!
Shalom!
Oliver, Berlin
