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.
