The location of the hotel is good, close to a metro stop. It was reasonably quiet throughout our stay. A fantastic breakfast is included. The room was clean and comfortable.
The receptionists are very polite and nice. Rooms are comfortable and clean.The area is safe at night and the hotel is very quiet.Will definitely come again!!!
Everything is great. Just one detail: at breakfast there is nothing salty!
Very good location in the city. Possibility to visit the most important places of Rome by foot. Spacious and clean rooms and good breakfast.
My room was a little dark (not enough light during the day) and we were close to the reception of the hotel and we heard sometimes the noise from there.
Everything OK, especially location - place is very nice.
It was rather cold in last days of November. Some hot water and your hotel will be a real paradise.
The best thing was the size of the bathroom.
Breakfast... It doesn't offer you something worthy.. It's very hard to find something to eat at the "open buffet". If you have the option, room without breakfast go for it.. Don't spend money for that..
The location is good but it is not very close to a metro station so bus is the option when it is not walking distance. The room was big, quite comfortable and the building was indeed traditional.
The breakfast is ridiculous. For a double room of 130 Euros someone would expect much more choices and better quality. There is almost nothing salty, only soft cheese and dried bread (not even normal bread!). Not fresh croissants, tiny pieces of a cake, jam, butter, some fruits and this is it. Nothing else! Even the main coffee machine is so bad, unacceptable for Italy. As least for coffee the situation is saved thanks to a smaller do-it-yourself espresso machine.
The staff were very friendly and polite, it makes a holiday much better when staff are approachable. Very tidy housekeeping and very handy to have air-con! Would reccomend this hotel to a friend. Very well located for a city break. We didn't need a taxi once as there are maps of the city available complimentary at reception so we walked everywhere!
Nicely Staff and Great Location
The breakfast is very bad.
Excellent: hotel location; room facilities and comfort. Will certainly to Hotel Galatea on my next trip to Rome!
Breakfast was somewhat poor and should be improved. Otherwise, everything was just great!
Was cheap rooms, good staff, and very good location... Everything arround, 15 min walk.
The location is fabulous.Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk .We would definetely stay there again.
No internet in the rooms.
Reception is very friendly.
The lift in the Hotel is awful. We had to put up our luggage from 0 floor to the 1 floor by our self and then by the lift to the hotel. Also our room was dusty.
The location of the hotel was in walking distance to all the sights. The staff was great and made our stay very enjoyable.
good location, everything you need and a lot of sights are in walking distance. friendly and helpful service. big rooms and very clean.
Quite noisy, noise of street and backyard can be heard through the closed windows. Equipment of the kitchen and the furniture was rather basic, it was ok but really not what I would call a design appartment.
The location of Hotel Galatea was great - right in the city center and an easy walk to all of Rome's main attractions - as well as the metro and main train station! I booked this hotel based on location, price and past reviews and I was not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly, our room and bathroom was nice and spacious and very comfortable.
The only things I didn't particularly enjoy was the breakfast - not a whole lot of selection and almost all of the choices were very sweet and sugary. The only other downside were all of the marble stairs - the hotel is located on the 3rd floor (which is actually the fourth floor). There is a lift for the entire building but unfortunately most of the people who use the lift didn't close the doors back all the way when they exited on an upper level and the lift does not operate when the doors are not closed completely. So after a long, hot day of trudging around Rome, it was depressing to get there and press the lift button to find that it was stuck on an upper floor so we had to take the stairs.
