                Breakfast is ok but don't have fresh fruits.

                We booked a quadruple room, and it stay in a terrible building anexx off the building of the hotel, have a lift historical but didn't work correctly and we stay on the second floor, so we had to carrie our own luggage....we did't stay in this hotel again and don't recomend for anyone. The room is very dark and also the bathroom. When we booked they didn't say it's going to be two sofa-bed and two beds! They don't have rooms for more then two people. They said that have but the adds beds were sofa-bed. This hotel is very very awfull.

                Hotel is located very near to Termini. You can reach anywhere in Rome from here.

                For two of the single rooms we stayed, had problem with ventilation in the bathrooms. This might be a problem for some. otherwise its a good place to stay.

                Hotel was conveniently located within five minutes from the main train station. Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was decent and what I would expect for the price.

                Lack of internet. Not very many restaurants/bars around the hotel. However, there was a nice little restaurant across the street that seemed family-run and had delicious pizza.

                Location is close to the train station, the university and military headquarters.

                The single room was exceptionally small. It was clean clean, but it had a slight musty odor.

                I got a room different than what I ordered in advance . Broken bed and breakfast very poor .

                The high price of the room, does not justify the small room, services , including a broken bed, and second bed very uncomfortable .

                Near to the main station.

                The staff speaks very bad english, unfriendly but this is pathologic for roma, breakfast was disgusting as often, nothing surprising, they have so much tourists and they show that they do not rely on "you". Furniture is at least 30 years old. There is of course the smell of old carpets ... I can recommend this hotel since I know that the others are the same. Italy is a like a old lady either you like her or not but do not try to change her.

                There was a great location.

                The decor left something to be desired and actually was kind of scary the first few nights. You also had to pay for wifi.

                The hotel is adequate, nothing outstanding just about enough for what you need on a weekend break. Staff are helpful and provide good service, the room was clean and tidy and generally the hotel was in good order. Breakfast was standard but good and plentiful, it kept our boys happy till lunch.

                The room was a little cramped as we had 4 separate beds for a family of 2 + 2, but that's all we needed really. The hotel is probably privately owned, so little things you notice are done cheaply, but it doesn't really affect your stay. Hotel is just a little too far away from Termini, its not out of the way, and the Metro station is just a block away, but it means quite often you have to change at Termini to switch lines, which at the end of a day walking around Rome is a little tiring! Not too much going on nearby, a few places to eat, etc or you walk back to Termini or of course jump on the Metro and go to one of the many other places around Rome.

                We got a small Duplex room with a balcony. it was very causy, comfy and clean. Very nice friendly staff, helpful, they book us operah tickets. Good breakfast with enough variety. soooooo close to the termini station. working elevator and AC.

                the breakfast room was soooo far from where we stayed!!! there is no inside connection between the 4 hotels!!!

                It is close to Termini station. It is only acceptable for one night if your bus to the airport has to be taken very early in the morning.

                The room was in an other building and it was very hot and noisy, due to the air condition engines installed close to these rooms. Also, the air condition installed in our room did not work properly and it was very noisy too. My husband and me could not sleep during the night. It was horrible. The breakfast was poor. This hotel is very expensive comparing quality/price.

                Good location for our purposes. The hotel is in 2 sections and we were in the annexe meaning leaving the annexe to walk round to the main hotel for breakfast. Fortunately it wasn't raining while we were there. Hotel was clean and staff friendly and spoke some English. Breakfast was generally good and plentiful.

                Beds were not particularly comfortable. We had to change rooms after the first night - family reasons, a long story - first night the beds were quite hard but the rest of our stay were rather bouncy. The thermostat in the rooms were set to 29 degrees c: much too hot even in February. Even when turned off the rooms were rather too hot for us.

                We love the fact that Hotel Galles in just a walking distance from Termini Station. Halal Restaurants are also nearby so it was relatively easy for us (Muslims) to get our meals. Hotel's cleanliness is up to standard and the overall ambiance is wonderful.

                Just be sure that you keep all your belongings when leaving the room. Our nutella packets went missing on the final night of our stay after room service was done but we did not make a big fuss out of it because it was just food.
