The hotel is a maximum 10 minute walk from Termini Station. We booked a standard double room. It was quite small but clean with a small closet, TV, a table and AC. But we left early in the morning and arrived late at night so it was more than enough for us. The only thing is that we couldn't sleep...

For a 3 star hotel it's pretty good. Starting with the pros: 1) good location 800m walk from termini station don't take a cab just walk it's literally 8-10 minutes 2) restaurants are close around the area all within walking distance 3) breakfast included (cold breakfast typical Italian breaky - meats, cheese yogurt, cereal, croissant, boiled egg, juices and toast....

This is a tricky one. In terms of location this hotel is quite good being near the Termini Station and it has a Metro close by, so access to the main sites is pretty good. However the surrounding area is not very appealing and the area around the Termini at night does attract plenty of unsavoury characters. The rooms are...

If what are looking for is somewhere comfortable to rest your head at night then hotel Galileo is a good choice. It doesn't pretend to be something it's not. There is no pomp and circumstance but my wife and I were made to feel right at home from the moment we checked in. The room was a comfortable size and...

Stayed briefly at Hotel Galileo. The room was small and old compared to other hotels in the area. There was this weird smell filled in the room. Bathroom was useable, except with some mold on the walls. The hotel provides breakfast, but all you can get was basic cold food. They even charge you money for hot water. The receptionist...

When we booked our recent holiday to Italy for the three of us we were informed that this is a 3 star hotel. When we arrived here and opened the door to our room we were somewhat shocked to discover that there really wasn't enough room to swing a cat, the room consisted of three single beds and there was...

Lovely hotel in a nice area of Rome. Our room was basic and simple, but very clean and we had everything we needed. Only a 5 minutes walk to termini rail station (where you can take train or bus to/from airport) and the metro station making it really easy to get to places such as the colosseum or Vatican City....

Very good location, staff was extremely friendly and helpful/knowledgeable about tourism. Rooms were decent size double rooms. Breakfast was a healthy spread and we could even use the patio to enjoy our self made dinner and drinks. Near local shopping centre, hop on/off bus route and Central Train Station.

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
