The Palm Gallery Hotel was just what I was looking for in Rome - small, charming, very friendly and incredibly good value. Luisa was all about providing the best service available and she and her staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Our welcome was warm and inviting which set the pace for our short 2 night stay. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the very large 'panoramica' room with the 2 corner windows. I guess the view outside wasn't quite as beautiful as I had imagined but it was winter and still very nice. The room was stunning - clean, spacious and the bed was so comfortable. Loved the bathroom and the only gripe was that the towels were a little old looking and scratchy (just needed drying in the tumble dryer). Two of the breakfast highlights were the cappuccinos made with fresh milk from cows in the neighbouring mountains and the freshly squeezed orange juice. Luisa recommended a wonderful little Italian restaurant close by for dinner and it was so much better than the ones we tried in the centre of Rome. We felt welcome and were treated like one of the locals. Great wine selection too. The house and neighbourhood were very quiet and we did not have any noise issues whatsoever even though the villa is still being renovated. I love her style, energy and enthusiasm and will heartily recommend the hotel, especially in the low season, when we hope to go back again.
