Stayed in Hotel Galileo, Rome for three nights. The shuttle bus from the airport dropped us very close to the hotel at 9.30pm but it was very hard to find the hotel as it is up a small alleyway and isn't very well sign posted from the road. On arrival we were offered a courtesy lift to and from a restaurant associated with the hotel, being tired and hungry we accepted the offer. The driver was v pleasant and friendly but the food was v expensive and disappointing - it was the worst meal we had while in Rome, so we don't advise anyone to accept the same offer - there are much nicer restaurants v close to the hotel.
We were given Room 102 and it was v clean and comfortable. The only fault it has was its position - it is at the top off the stairs, where the lift opens and the breakfast room is accessed - so noise levels can be a problem. Other than that the room was fine with a very nice bathroom and strong shower. The room was serviced every morning and the women in the dining room were very friendly. The breakfast was nice, variety of tinned fruits, cheese and hams, yogurts, cereals, bread, juices and plenty of tea and coffee.
There was a very friendly girl on reception the first two mornings we were there and nothing was too much trouble. Her friendliness was very much appreciated.
The Hotel Galileo is very close to the Termini Station but we walked every where and didn't use public transport apart from a hop on hop off bus for the first day to get our bearings.
So in summary the Hotel Galileo was a great base to explore Rome from. We were v comfortable and well looked after. Pity there was no bar and Room 102, while very nice, can be noisy.
