Great location/Great price

Hotel review by Brian, United States in 30 January 2013

First of all, my 3's for "Food and dining areas" and "Public areas (Pool, Lobby, Bar)" is because there was no place to mark "N/A" as neither applied to Galileo House. Second, for me a hotel is a place to sleep and leave my bags so I mainly look for location and price. Galileo House is right in t...

My best hotel stay in recent history

Hotel review by Richard, United States in 09 December 2012

I'm in the travel industry and travel extensively. I love the expensive hotel chains, but can never warrant paying $300 per night for the plushness. I use the hotel facilities I need to, and am comfortable as long as the room is clean, the linens are good and the place is safe. I found the Galileo h...

Hotel review by Koichi, Japan in 27 November 2012

Staff stay at front for 24 hours. Good security. Breakfast is the outside cafe, Liveat, but I like it. Location is very good, near from the market. Checkout time is excellently late, 4 pm. The room is very small....

Nice Place to Stay

Hotel review by Vincent, France in 25 July 2012

This hostel is very well located. Right into the city center and 5 min walking to the beach. It's a bit expensive, but clean, quite, and friendly. You must go to the rooftop! It's an awsome area to chill out. ...

Hotel Galileo et Sun-Aviv

Hotel review by didier, France in 14 August 2011

L'hôtel Galilléo est bien placé près du marché Karmel (central). L'accueil est excellent, jeunes gens très agréables. Le petit déjeuner se prend à l'extérieur (préferer le resto le plus proche de l'hôtel, meilleur...) Tel aviv est cher, mais l'hôtel est d'un bon rapport qualité prix. EVITER l'hôtel ...

Great experience

Hotel review by Charles, United States in 23 June 2011

Loved Galileo! The location is funky, near the beach. The staff are fabulously friendly and welcoming. The room was smallish, but comfortable, and the rooftop lounge is a great place to wake up with a cup of coffee. I look forward to staying there again....

Cosy :)

Hotel review by Alina , Bulgaria in 21 April 2011

The place is quite good and the location is great. More so to say a motel, rather than a hotel - quite cosy, no lobby or anything, but it is perfectly fine if you are on a vacation. I cannot really say anything bad about it, just maybe the bathroom was quite small but still fine! The staff is friend...

great location but loud

Hotel review by Silke, Belgium in 04 March 2011

If you want to feel like everyone in Tel Aviv is standing near your bed talking and laughing all night, this is the place to be. Acoustic comfort could better. Great location in the middle of the center. Good service, nice but small breakfast, I'd recommend it but ear plugs are advised. ...

Decent place, too noisy

Hotel review by Ellen, United States in 24 February 2011

The hotel and room itself were fine -- small but comfortable, and clean. The breakfast voucher at a nearby cafe was perfect for me. The deal-breaker is that the hotel is near major roads and my room was on top of a bar -- it was just too noisy, and cigarette smoke from people standing outside the ...

Hotel review by Michael, United Kingdom in 11 October 2009

The Galileo Hotel is great for the price. It is an amazing location as you are right in the middle of it all. If you can afford to pay a bit more and maybe stay closer to the sea, with a nice view, then I would, but for the price and level of comfort and service, it was perfect. Recommended!...

This small but friendly hotel is good for "light travelers". There are no facilities for eating or have a breakfast, but an arrangement is made with a very good coffee shop nearby to take breakfast. The flat roof with view on the "old town" of Tel Aviv is a must and a wonderful place to take a brea...

Je viens de passer 6 jours au Galiléo lors d'un congrès médical. La localisation est optimale, en plein quartier animé (parfois même un peu trop !), à 2 pas du marché du Carmel, des rues commerçantes, des innombrables bars et boites de nuits et pas loin de la plage. L'hôtel en lui même est tout pe...

Friendly and engaged service and a very good location, especially for young people / couples. However, the brown wall-to-wall carpet in the room and the beds were dusty and dirty. There was also a strong smell of sewerage coming from the bathroom which made it unpleasant to stay in the small room. I...

We arrived during Rosh Hashannah and the reception was very very bad, though when the person changed, the others were quite friendly. On top of all, it was indicated on their Internet site that the price included breakfast and it was not the case. When we tried to explain this, the lady at the recep...

During the first days of september 2008 I spent some days at the Galileo hotel, being in Tel Aviv on a business trip. I liked every part of my stay, the location, the friendly reception, the cleanness of the room, the sun-roof. The only draw back was a rather unfriendly young man who was asked to c...
