    Superb

    The lady at reception was very accommodating and waited on the phone line until someone answered at the Accedamia to make me a reservation to see the David statue without waiting in line. She was very patient and was extremely friendly (as were all the staff). Also the mini-bar in the room is great if you just want to keep some of your own stuff in the fridge.

    The showers are very weird. I thought I had seem every type of shower in Europe before but this one takes the cake. There is a moveable glass that swings out which covers only half the bathtub. The shower head is not at either end but in the middle facing down. Needless to say water goes everywhere and there is very little room to stand. Housekeeping staff know to bring a mop and bucket each day when they clean the rooms. Was the only negative about the place!

    Exceptional

    Good hotel. Very close to main train station (walking distance) and to the leather markets, which are just a few streets away, a mere 2 minute walk. Walking distance to the sights. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. Good friendly, helpful English speaking staff. Reception will store luggage for you free of charge. Room is comfortable and adequate. There were extra blankets in the cupboard.

    Safety deposit box did not work. Our shower was a bit blocked and it took a bit of time for the water to go down. Room was a bit small, a bit difficult to open out two large suitcases. Cupboard in room had no door handle, so was difficult to grip to open. Towels were a bit small, but extra were provided on request at no extra cost. No tea or coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast selection was limited, but alright.

    Very good

    I have been staying at the Hotel Galileo for the last four visit to Florence. I find the Hotel staff very helpful and the fact that they speak English is also a plus. The night clerk is the one of the most friendly Italians I have met. I have recommened this hotel to others.

    Fabulous

    Hotel Galileo is ideally positioned.It is near the Train Station and all major attractions with good restaurants and Snack Bars nearby.It is clean and the Staff are friendly and helpful. It is good value for money.

    I know it would be unusual in Italy, but a Kettle in the Room for Tea or Coffee making would be appreciated by the weary Tourist.
