We stayed four nights at the Hotel Golden in Rome, and enjoyed it very much. The room was small, but comfortable...quaint! Bathroom was just fine, with a additional footbath. Okay, maybe it's a beday, but it works well as a footbath and for doing a bit of laundry too! The breakfasts were fine, nothing fancy, but filled our bellies enough for a good morning out. BUT, what makes this hotel most special are the owners. It is a family run hotel, and they are as nice as they can be! They were very helpful and friendly. In fact, I forgot my camera charger and when I arrived in Florence, there it was! I don't know how they knew where I'd be, but how nice of them to mail it to me!
The location isn't bad at all. It's not in the "heart" of Rome, but never too far to walk to a major site, hook up point, or even to the Metro. When you're in Rome, no matter where you stay, just expect to walk...a lot!!! But back to the location, it's in a very nice neighborhood that is pretty quiet at night. But there are plenty of restuarants nearby, and just around the corner is one of Marriott's very fancy hotels. We always felt safe, no matter what time of day or night it was.
If you're looking for something in the medium price range, nothing too fancy but comfortable & friendly, this is a great hotel that I highly recommend!
