We just returned from a two-week vacation in Europe, which included a 5-night stay at the Palm Gallery Hotel. We would recommend this charming B&B hotel to anyone planning a trip to Rome. You will fall in love with the owner, Luisa, who is gracious, kind, and ever so thoughtful. Her amazing staff, Lorenzo, Vincenzo, and Amir assisted us with breakfast at the hotel, restaurant reservations, directions to local stores, transportation services, and so much more.
The hotel is located in a beautiful and picturesque residential neighborhood. Our room was spacious, very clean, and nicely decorated. The front patio is a great place to relax any time of the day ... enjoy a cup of espresso... a glass of wine and cheese from a local market... or just unwind taking in the beauty of the local landscape and architecture.
During our visit, we found it most convenient to use the metro to travel around the city. We also enjoyed exploring Rome by foot, adding 5-10 miles of exercise to our daily routine, allowing us to indulge in delicious Italian meals and, of course, Gelati ice cream. Within walking distance of the hotel, you’ll find beautiful parks, local bus stops, the metro, grocery stores, and restaurants. Day trips to Florence and Naples are possible, thanks to Italy's express train - 2 hours from Rome to Florence. We took the metro to the Termini, then boarded an 8am train to Florence and returned that evening on the 7pm train.
