“Great location and spacious rooms”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we were impressed by the location and room size of this hotel.

It is located behind Duomo cathedral! Parking is available in the nearby garage (they have valet parking). Rooms are great, with large windows and huge bathroom. Common areas in hotel are a bit dark.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends!

Pros- good location-close to sites Duomo etc and shopping. Room was large for European Standards. Bathroom was spacious and beds were queen sized.
Price of stay very reasonable.

Cons- hotel sort of old school. You need to use regular keys.
No irons in room. We had to pay to have out clothes ironed
One of the major issues I had regarded our taxi back to MXP.
We asked person at reception to call us a taxi around 6 am. One would expect persons working there to have guests best interest at hand. Hotel staff member directed us to a taxi that was not marked. On the initial start of journey I realised car had no meter. On arrival to MXP driver demanded 150 euros. Being tourists and not wanting trouble we paid. This is robbery. I was very disappointed in this hotel for this. Because of this I would never stay here again

Great location. You're within a 3 minute walk from the Duomo and all of the CROWDS that brings, but yet away so that you can get away from the noise. Very easy to get to the metro. (Buy the unlimited ticket for only £8.50 and travel for an entire weekend. Very nice staff. Very helpful. Clean and comfortable. Not fancy rooms but the beds are very comfortable. I would stay again.

Stayed at the Hotel Galileo for 2 nights, in fact I'm typing this review as I enjoy breakfast before checking out. This is my first trip to Milan and first trip travelling on my own - couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The reviews were on point. Some describe the hotel as 'dated', yet in a city renowned for its design the term 'retro' seems more suited :). Whichever word suits, the interior is spotlessly clean. Thanks Alan F for the airport transfer tip from Linate. I jumped on the 73 and was there in no time. To add to Alan's review below - you need to get off at the last stop, the hotel is straight ahead on the right. I stayed in a single room on the 5th floor and was not disappointed. It was spacious, comfortable and the dressing gown and slippers were a nice touch. I'm not a big eater or foodie, what was served for breakfast was nice enough. They score extra points for the wheat free bread and rice cakes, which are there at no extra cost. I didn't dine in the restaurant for dinner I did however enjoy a glass or two of wine at the bar. The staff were incredibly friendly and the chef surprised me with complimentary Hors d'oeuvres, which were delicious! The hotel is a stones throw away from the metro, La Scala, Duomo and many other attractions. For all the fashionista's out there it's Mecca! The hotel is in the best spot. Travel light, you'll need the extra space. Before you pay the designer prices head to the designer discount store Il Salvagente where it's bargains galore. You'll find some lovely boutiques near Pinacoteca di Brera (nrst metro - Lanza). I've fallen in love with Milan so will definitely return and will certainly stay at the Hotel Galileo.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking room.

We stayed at Hotel Galileo for 2 nights to attend a performance at La Scala Opera House.
The hotel interior is dated but spotlessly clean. Our room was large with a good bathroom and very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was one of the best I have found in an inexpensive European hotel. Bar and restaurant also very good and reasonably priced. All the staff were charming and helpful.

Location was so convenient - 5 minutes walk to La Scala, the Cathedral and city centre shops and restaurants.

I would not hesitate to return for another stay and recommend this hotel as a good reasonably priced and convenient place to stay.

We returned to the Galileo this month for our ten-day Milano visit with friends. Once again, we were impressed with most everything about this friendly hotel. The reception staff is welcoming and always helpful, the breakfast is extensive (served with great skill and charm, especially, by Giancarlo and Paulina....both exceptional!). The housekeeping ladies are efficient and pleasant, especially Renata, who works the evening shift. For convenience and value, this hotel is a gem! Can't wait for the next time!

Room Tip: Floors above the seventh have been renovated and are definitely worth the extra cost, and we prefer...
