“Lovely stay w/ family atmosphere at Hotel Golden, Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Personal Vent: So let's be honest, the more you require of a hotel the more you must be willing to pay and because one did not get something for nothing is no cause for a poor review (I suspect this is the basis for the negative reviews here).

Review: We enjoyed a wonderful seven night stay in a "superior double" at the Hotel Golden. We found the Loria family to be welcoming, warm and very, very helpful throughout our stay in Rome. Offers of assistance were made from their very first email and they happily made several telephone reservations for us when web sites could not accommodate ROMA Pass reservations. I was reassured that I "would not be alone while in Rome" and indeed we were not, help and advice were always available from Giuseppe and Marco and they truly contributed to making our time in Rome trouble-free.
The hotel is spotless and the pride the family takes in meeting their guests' expectation is evident. The breakfast is varied and offers protein and sweets to fuel your excursions (and exertions :))

Generally I apply the "would I stay here again and would I let my mother stay here" rule of thumb to determine an objective review and in both instances I would answer "Yes, of course" and "Absolutely".

Go, enjoy Rome and feel confident in your choice to stay at the Golden.

Room Tip: Go for the Superior rooms if size is an issue.

I have no words to express our gratitue for allowing us to be part of your memories of Rome.. we really wish you come back to Rome and to the Hotel Golden soon, so that we can share all together again.

you can not imagine how happy you made us, letting us know that you enjoyed a pleasant stay and that we were part of it (not just the property itself but each one of our family members)

to know that we contributed to make your stay completely trouble-free is so important. because that is why we are here (to help all our guest take back home the best memories of Rome)

it is absolutely true.. we take pride of our property and what we do for all our guests (it is not just doing it, it is the way we try to do it, with a smile, with love, making sure we go beyond your expectations, to make sure you are happy) as happy as we are to have you with us!

in our emails exchange with our guests (just prior their arrival to Rome) after sharing with them all the info they need or helping them make the arrangements they need to do, we always try to communicate the message that you will not be alone while in Rome and we are so glad that you have stated it with your own words.. we could not have worded better than the way you did.

we highly thank you for your objective review becuase we are sure it will help a lot tripadvisor's users in understanding what the Hotel Golden is and what to expect from the Loria's Family (your hosts in Rome)

"grazie di cuore"


we can not wait to see you again here in Rome!

A hidden gem in Rome. We have stayed several times and it will always be our home away from home as Rome has become one of our favorite cities to visit.
A family run business, they always make you feel like you are special! From the amazing breakfast prepared by mama and Alina to the wonderfully helpful brothers Giuseppe and Marco who reside at the front desk, always willing to suggest places to visit or send you in the right direction. The family takes exceptional pride in their hotel, the rooms are beautifully designed and decorated, highlighted by original paintings by sister. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

grazie, grazie.. grazie!! it is so conforting to know that you feel at home with us!

we are so proud of having returning guests like you, that will consider no other places to stay in Rome than the Hotel Golden.. as we wrote in previous responses to other reviews, having so many returning guests like you means a lot to us (as probably it does to tripadvisor users that come to this website to find a safe, clean and perfectly located hotel) to find a hotel that offers VALUE (location, confort, service, all of that @ affordable rates, especially considering that we are located in the Via Veneto area, where all the luxury and most expensive properties are located)

but then you point to the interaction with our family and how that has increased the level of your Roman trips, and how you feel special with us.. well we have to say you really made up our day with those beautiful words.. and be sure that also you (as all our guests) make us feel special, like having a big FAMILY all over the world.. and when we receive an email of one of our guests that wants to come back (we not only remember of them) but we get that same emotion when you know you will be seeing soon someone that you really care of.

thank you for your review.. thank you for encouraging us to keep working hard to make your Rome's home just as you want it to be (and when we write HOME you know we mean not only the property but the persons that make the property a happy one, and those persons are our guests all around the world)

con affetto,

Giuseppe e Famiglia

We visited Hotel Golden on the recommendation of friends who had stayed there on a number of occasions. If you are looking for a small, non-pretentious, family run hotel, then this is the one for you. Our room was clean and the buffet breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel was excellent for public transport and the sites. Nothing was too much trouble for the family who were really friendly & always on hand to offer advice to guests - be it on travel, restaurants, visits etc. We have already recommended Hotel Golden to our friends.

Room Tip: We originally booked a large room, but because we changed dates and wanted to extend our trip the on...

we are so happy that you have already recommended the Hotel Golden to your friends.. and be sure we will take good care of them just as we did with you, because at the Hotel Golden each one of our guests are more than friends: they are Family!!!!

the fact that you felt like with family with us, honestly is the best compliment you can give us.. we try to do our best (all that is in our possibilities) to make each one of our guests feel at home with us (not just safe and pampered, but to feel the closeness of the Family and how much we care of them)

as you wrote, we are always there for our guests, and what ever is in our possibilities, we will do it to make sure you have that smile in your face.. the kind of smile that makes up our day!

thankyou for pointing out the hommy atmosphere of our property.. there is no better words to describe it than the ones of our guests.

regarding location, ours is one of the best of the city (where all the five stars and luxury hotels are) having the "oasis" of the Borghese Gardens just behind us (and the excelent and unique musuem of the Borghese Gallery) which we can help you book it, as we wil help you book any other museum or site you plan to visit while in Rome.

we are literally 50 meters away from the famous Via Veneto.. from our location you can walk everywhere: 10 minutes walk and you are at the Spanish Steps, 15 minutes walk and there is Trevi Fountain, and from there you have everything else within a short walk.

we will provide our guests with a nice little city-map that you can carry everywhere (and we will draw on that map all the routes, and the walkings you can do) including all the sites that you should visit.

and then, I am so glad you mentioned the breakfast, which is one of those moments when we treat our guests.. the breakfast time for us is one of those moments when we communicate to our guests how much we care about them.. infact, our mother Teresa and our sister Alina are there personally in the breakfast room, each morning greeting you with such a genuine smile, welcoming you to have a table to enjoy the freshnes of a hommy and helathy breakfast and try their new recipes.. just like they will do with friends or family at home.. with that same feeling with which you will treat a very good friend that you care a lot of: that is what we at the Hotel Golden and the Loria's Family try to do every day.

you can not imagine how happy my mother is when we receive compliments for her breakfast and especially when our guests already back home (after their trip) email us to let us know that they miss that great breakfast of the Hotel Golden (Teresa's breakfast) even some of them asking the recipes of cinnamon french toasts, the coconut biscuts (healthy and delicious) and the fried sliced apples as also the cold salad rise with tuna or vegetables (we have received several times request of recipes from previous guests, and my mother with a such a big smile in the face shares her recipes with our guests) that is what we call here at the Hotel Golden: HOSPITALITY with the capital H (as your wrote: Home from Home)

grazie!!

The Hotel Golden was booked having read the excellent Tripadvisor reviews, well they weren't wrong. We booked two single rooms for four days and can honestly say that the whole experience was outstanding. Our airport taxi, organised by the hotel, was waiting for us despite a delayed arrival, caused by flight delays. Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by Giuseppe who ensured a great welcome and provided the legendary map complete with suggested routes, recommended restaurants etc. This and all the subsequent information provided by Marco and Giuseppe proved invaluable over the next few days. The hotel has a lovely welcoming family feel and is kept immacuately clean. Breakfast consists of a really extensive and tasty selection complete with a welcoming friendly smile. We couldn't have asked for anything more and the hotel exceeded what I had expected even after reading all the reviews. We'll be returning.

thankyou for giving us the opportunity to meet you and your mother personally.. sharing with you all our knowledge of Rome and helping you explore the city as a Roman would do, for us that kind of service was a way to make you feel how much we cared of both of you!

and honestly, you can not imagine how much your words of confirmation help us.. not just because it makes us feel we are doing what our guests want us to do, but because those words that you wrote are a true and genuine feeling of gratitude that means SOOO MUCH TO US

to confirm with an example, how much passion we put on treating our guests, I want to offer our tripadvisor's future guests something that just happened a short while ago: some of our guests went to have dinner in trastevere and once back from the restaurant (it is just around midnight here in Rome at the moment) and they realized that they left their cel phone at the restaurant, so they came to the reception and without hesitation I called immediately the restaurant.. and guess what, the cel phone was there under the table and I asked the owner of the place to store it safe and tomorrow morning I will go personally to pick it up for my guests (that is what we feel like hospitality is about at the Hotel Golden) and your review confirms word by word how important each one of you are for our family.

thankyou for taking of your time to let future guests know about us and your experience with us.

we already look forward to your next visit to Rome and to the Hotel Golden!

grazie di cuore!

Giuseppe

I have once again spent four fantastic days in Hotel Golden. Giuseppe, Marco and the rest of the family make you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the front door.
This was my third visit to Hotel Golden and therefore I have stayed in three different rooms: All the rooms are beautifully decorated and they are very spacious and clean. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic!
The location is great - you are only a few minutes away from The Spanish Steps.
I have already booked my next vacation in Hotel Golden and I can't wait to go back to "my home away from home" and to see my friends in the hotel.

thankyou for visiting us again.. as always, it is so nice to share with you all our knowledge of Rome!

and what could be more telling, than having our guests returning to visit us year by year (just like you are on your third visit to the Hotel Golden, many of our guests are returning guests)

your review is so important to us becuase we can read from your words how much our guests enjoy the Family experience and the hommy atmosphere that we offer at the Hotel Golden.

choosing to stay at the Hotel Golden in Rome it is like visiting your Family in Rome.. and your review confirms all what we are trying to do, since three generations (Grandpa Antonio and Grandma Edvige, Papà Mario and Mamma Teresa, and now at the third generation of the family, Giuseppe, Maria Teresa, Alina and Marco)

your words of appreciation help us improve and offer more value to our guests.. just like we did last summer, rennovating all the exteriors of our property, taking the building to its original colors (consider that our property is just next to the Roman Walls, we are talking about almost 3000 years of history right there as you walk outside of the Hotel Golden's door)

until next time we can see each other, on the name of all my family, I send you a big hug!

from sunny Rome and all the Loria's Family

We chose Hotel Golden based off of all the great reviews here and they were spot on! This hotel is truly a gem and the entire family was wonderful! We arrived into Rome on a 7am flight and had arranged a taxi through the hotel. The taxi driver was waiting for us right when we walked out and gave us a nice tour of the city on our way to the hotel. He was very passionate about Rome and gave us a few tips as well. We were so incredibly fortunate that we were also able to check in VERY early that day, as the previous occupants had an early flight out and the room was ready for us at 8:30am. Upon check in, Giuseppe gave us a wonderful orientation of Rome and pointed out several things on the map that we had not previously planned on seeing. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and overall they made us feel extremely welcome and part of their family. I would highly recommend this hotel for your next visit to Rome!

today we were all the family together reading the lastest reviews on tripadvisor and I have to say that it is so conforting to know that we were part of those happy moments you all lived during your visit to Rome.. there is nothing that makes us happier than those smiles when we have the opportunity to share a little chat at the receiption or during the breakfast time (especially with our mother that welcomes all our guests in the breakfast room just like family)

I want to take advantage of your review to point to future guests what the word hospitaly means to us:

it starts with the exchange of emails (since the very first moment you contact us) because it is from those first moments that we get to meeet each other.. we are here to help each one of you, so all our passion goes into making sure you can have all the information you need to plan your vacation, and especially your visit to Rome (and making sure you know that here you have an entire family willing to help without being invasive, we want you to know that we can help with anything you might need)

the limo company we work with (we outsource all our transportation needs to them) is at least 20 years that we work with them and in the years they have proved to be reliable and very accommodative with our guests (exactly what you wrote in your message) we always try to talk to the drivers (even if they do not work directly for us) but we try to explain them that our guests are so precious, that when we send one of them to pick-up one of our guests at the airport it is just like if my dad or one of the family members would be there on their behalf.. therefore we were so happy to read your review and notice your satisfaction with the service offered by our driver.

it is so pleasant to know that you, as all our guests (just reading the other reviews, the message that comes through is the same) you all felt not only welcomed but like being with FAMILY with us.. for us it is a pleasure to meet you all and share together.. the kind of hospitality that only a friend or a family can give,, that is what the Hotel Golden is about and that is what we as family are so looking forward to share with you!

that is the reason why we welcome you at the hotel as early as you need to (there are no formalities here at the Golden.. yes check in time is 14.00 hours because just at that time we can be 100% sure that we will have your room ready) but if your plane arrives early, we will do our best for you to feel confortable and taken care of... in your case we were lucky that the previous night guests had an early flight (and we started working in your room as early as 07.00 AM because we knew in advance you were arriving early that day and we wanted to surprise you) that is the kind of hospitality that we offer at the Hotel Golden.

and all the passion we put on explaining the city, on giving you our advise on each question you have for us, on sharing all our knowledge of Rome with each one of you, is just because we want that you have the greatest experience... we want that you can have the most of those days you spend with us here in Rome and with our family at the Hotel Golden.

un grazie grande grande!!!!

Giuseppe
