After reading the reviews of the Palm Galley Hotel and making a reservation, my husband and I wondered if something was going on - it sounded too good to be true. It turned out to be even better than we thought. We stayed at the Palm Galley for four nights in late June with our two kids, ages 10 and 12. It was the perfect place to stay in Rome: quiet residential neighborhood away from the tourist areas, clean, quiet and cool rooms, pretty garden, good breakfasts with great cappuccino, and, of course, the kind, hospitable and energetic Luisa. Despite having an amazing amount to do, Luisa always took time to talk to us and thoughtfully answer our questions. She seemed to delight in kids, telling our boys stories, putting out special towels for them and, on our last night, leaving them large chocolate eggs with prizes inside on their pillows. The kids loved staying there and playing with her dog, her cats and her two free roaming turtles in the garden. In fact, when a relative asked one of my kids what his favorite part of our three week trip to Italy was, he answered the Palm Galley Hotel and Rosalba and Hugo (the turtles). My only concern for the Palm Gallery Hotel is that Luisa not get overwhelmed and lose the enjoyment she seems to have in her guests and the hotel. She has ambitious plans. When we were there she was having a lift installed, she had just bought a van so the hotel could transport guests, and she had plans to put in a restaurant. It seems like a lot - although she just may have the energy to pull it off. To summarize, I wish I could give this hotel more than five stars. It was one of our favorites of all time. If we return to Rome, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
