    Hotel Galileo The location was good...central to the train station, duomo, mercato and shops.
    Hotel Galileo The bathroom was not pleasant as it had paint peeling off the walls, the vent above the shower was disgusting and full of build up, the drain in the sink required a good cleaning with again build up and obvious dirt. The entire bottom section of the showe along the edges was again dirty and gross. I was certainly not impressed with the state of the bathroom...
