We recently visited Bariloche to climb the Tronador mountain. We stayed at the Galileo for 4 days. The stay was fantastic. We were treated to daily room breakfasts (brought in by a hotel clerk every morning at your chosen time). But the real treat came at night when the observatory opened and our astronomer enthusiast gave us a tour of the southern ski. What a delightful activity! Never before we were so enthralled by a hotel extra activity. My closest comparison would be the Ritz in Battery Park, where they give you a telescope to see the statue of liberty. This was way better.
Kudos to the whole Galileo team and especially the manager, Sol.

Great place! Even better ski rental place! Within 10 steps of the gondola is an absolutely fantastic ski rental place. They even help you put on your boots as a skier with over 25 years of experience I don’t need but they keep them overnight, they keep your skis, everything shows up clean and ready in the morning. They’re fantastic and most of all, they are only 10 steps from the gondola.

Wish I could remember some of the guys that worked there. The manager refers to himself as “el chino”. The people at Galileo are fantastic. The heated floors in this place are unbelievable! It really makes the room warm and cozy.

Thank you Kevin for your comments! we are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Our underfloor heating is not only unbelievable but also very sustainable.
Galileo is as you say located very near to the mountain and we always recommend ski shops that take as good care of our guests as we do at the hotel :)
We hope to see you again soon

I loved my stay at the Galileo. I was looking for a nice mid-range hotel for a 5 day ski trip, and the Galileo exceeded my expectations. The service is excellent, Veronica in particular really went out of her way to help us, she helped us rent a car, and spent time doing inquiries on a fishing trip that we were looking to do. The other hotel employees were great as well. I forgot a belt in my room after I checked out, and they emailed me about it and I was able to come pick it up. Each room has a jacuzzi, there's nothing better than that after a long day of skiing! On one of the nights the hotel brought down an astronomer and invited the guests to join him as he showed us different stars using the telescope on the roof.. that's really unique! Even though the wifi never worked well, this hotel gets a 5 star rating from me for the great service and all the other nice things it has. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Thank you Sol P for your kind comments on your stay.
We work every day to meet and try to exceed our guests expectations. We are always glad to help make your experience an excellent one.
I will compliment Veronica on your behalf and the rest of our team as well. Fishing season in Patagonia usually runs from November through May, but you can sometimes fish all year round in some of our many surounding lakes. Please make sure to contact us in advance next time to arrange this before hand.
Galileo Boutique Hotel features an Astronomical Observatory and we are glad to invite all our guests on clear sky nights to discover the southern hemisphere´s stars and constellations.
We are crossing our fingers hoping a good internet server stablishes in Bariloche so we can improve our service.
We hope to see you again soon

I enjoyed my stay at Galileo. The room was beautiful and comfortable -- stone floors, very clean, all new-looking and (important after skiing) hot water. I particularly enjoyed the helpful and accommodating staff, which helped me feel settled in notwithstanding my very short stay. They also have larger suites with kitchens, which would be great for groups or longer stays. A 5-minute walk from the base of the mountain as well.
