We got 2 rooms for us and our 4 children over Easter. Great welcome from Christophe on reception who was excellent and extremely helpful throughout our stay and in emails beforehand. Very central location. Clean, comfortable and child friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

For Paris the hotel rooms are a good size. I stayed in room 301. Christopher the concierge is fantastic. He's really funny and helpful. He made me feel Very welcome. If you are looking for somewhere central to stay only 50m from Champs élysées this is a lovely Parisian hotel.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Galileo. It's a great location - tremendously close to the Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe - and you also have access to several Metro stops on various lines within a block or two. And then there is Christopher- I have travelled extensively and have never met such a helpful person. I needed urgent help calling a shop to make sure I knew how late they were open, and he helped me and two other people simultaneously - and achieved results for all of us!! The rooms are lovely in comparison to other rooms I have stayed at in Europe, but Americans should realize the proportions are smaller on the Continent than at home. But I promise you won't be disappointed with a stay at the Hotel Galileo!

This was my first trip to Paris. I chose Hotel Galileo based on the reviews on trip advisor and I was not disappointed. The room was modern, clean, and although small, very well appointed. The bathroom was very clean and quite large. The location was superb , close to subways and major attractions. The staff was extremely helpful with directions and suggestions for sightseeing and dinner. Christopher was exceptionally helpful, professional, and friendly. He provided us with wonderful recommendations for dinner and sightseeing!

This was the best value hotel in Paris we have stayed in. The room and bathroom was spacious, clean and lovely décor with windows that opened onto a balcony. It was good to have tea making facilities.

We selected Hotel Galileo based on the reviews in Trip Advisor, and our stay was excellent. We stayed for 5 nights in early June. Room size was as expected for a European boutique hotel, the decor and accommodations were modern, refreshing, and very clean. Hotel staff were courteous and welcoming. The advantages of Hotel Galileo include:

1. location, if you are a tourist, this is a safe and incredibly convenient and pleasant location. The Metro stop is George V, and being on line 1 proved to be extremely useful and efficient, if you plan to see the usual sights in Paris. Walking distance to the stop -- less than 5 min.
2. location -- walking distance to many sights, including of course the Arc, which is literally around the corner, nice walk to the Eiffel Tower, nice walk to Hotel Invalides, Place du la Concorde, Tuilleries, etc. -- all those are within 20-30 min walking.
3. staff, Christopher lives up to his great reviews here, courteous, genuinely enthusiastic and engaged in his profession, charming. Please consult with him not just for restaurant choices and reservations, but also other touring opportunities within and around Paris, he will set you up wonderfully!
4. rooms, typically compact in size, very clean, super comfortable beds, air conditioning, free WiFi

We stayed in the Hotel Galileo for 4 nights in June. Basically, I chose this hotel because of its 8th position in tripadvisor and what seemed to be a good rate relative to its position. I also very much liked the location. We had a standard double room, which was small as expected, overall clean and well- furnished in a modern fashion, 4th floor. No view to speak of. Quiet street although location central. The problems- the air conditioning was centrally controlled and too cold for us on our arrival (19 degrees). I complained over the next few days, but this of course could not be changed. At some point it was also too hot. Slept with open windows finally, but we were lucky to visit in June- excellent weather. We needed the extra blanket from the closet, but it contained foreign hairs- so we decided to do without. It seems basic to me, that the air conditioning should be controlled by the guests. No "light" TV channels in english, only CNN and BBC news. A central hotel, with so many tourists (and considering its price) should have more. Very small lobby. We didn't have breakfast. The staff was pleasant and helped us chose a good restaurant for dinner one night. Finally, ended feeling a bit let down as many of the reviews were superlative and we felt the hotel was rather basic and overpriced. Next time we will go elsewhere and explore other areas in Paris. (Paris itself was wonderful as always !)
