My husband, daughter and son-in-law and myself stayed 5 nights in May 2014 in what is called a family suite. It had 2 nice size bedrooms with one bath to share. The suite had a dining table that we could sit around and plan our next days activities. The hotel is in a very nice location in Rome and we walked to several of the attractions. There are great places to eat near the hotel after a long day of sight seeing. Each evening when we returned from our day of adventure we were greeeted with friendly hello and wanting to know how our day was and what we did. The owners (family owned and operated) couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast was amazing assortment of delights. This hotel is a great choice and would not disppoint. Highly recommend!

Hotel Golden was friendly, helpful, clean, quiet and served a varied and delicious breakfast. It is a short walk from the delightful Borghese gardens and wonderful Borghese Gallery. The staff are welcoming, speak English, and are happy to make restaurant suggestions & reservations, and give other assistance. It is a perfect, peaceful haven in busy, bustling, beautiful Rome.

The breakfast is the best we had in Europe! Mark and his family are so nice! He helped us with our luggage even though we arrived late night. He gave my husband instruction about where to park the car. They provided us with lots of guides about traveling Roma, even laundry place.

Affordable and friendly. Ideally located. Family owned and operated. Wonderful homemade breakfast. The owners/operators/family were extremely helpful with directions, bus routes, restaurant suggestions, etc...they were delightful, warm, lovely people. Room set up/size varied...the double was pretty "tight", but who cares...all we did was sleep there. My parents are 70 plus and mobile, but the steps in and out of their bathroom and the shower were worrisome after a long day of walking and the steps in and out of the building and up to the lobby might not be good for some guests. Otherwise, I highly recommend Hotel Golden for your Rome accommodations.

If a quiet well located small hotel is what you are seeking then I suggest you make an early reservation at the Hotel Golden to secure your room. The family members who operate the hotel are all warm, friendly, and extremely helpful. A bonus is the wonderful breakfast prepared each morning by the family matriarch, an always smiling and cheerful Mama.
I try not to leave anything valuable in my hotel room when I depart for the day but never gave it a second thought during my recent three night stay as the security of the premises was always in the hands of a family member. Close by are excellent reasonable restaurants, a subway station,
the Via Veneto, and the delightful villa Borghese grounds.

We stayed at the Hotel Golden for three nights before a cruise in early May, 2014. I have titled my review "Optimal Hotel" because I was challenged to find a hotel in Rome that had good reviews, was affordable, and at a location where we could walk to many of Rome's attractions. This hotel fit the bill! Our room was ready for us when we arrived around 11 am, which was nice for the nap we always need after a short night on the plane. The room had everything you could need, although the bed was a bit hard. Breakfast was excellent, with many choices for a small place.

We could easily walk to the Spanish Steps, the Borghese Gallery, The Trevi Fountain, and on from there. After long days of walking, we tended to take a taxi back. One night we ate near the hotel at a nice restaurant recommended by the owner.

One tangential issue: the hotel web site speaks of a car service for transfers. We planned to use it and had signed up for a ride from the airport when we arrived. However, they were not there (no problem--it was easy to find another ride in). We then arranged for a ride to the cruise port. The driver was 15 minutes late (not a big deal). However, he was supposed to drop us off right at the ship. Instead, he dropped us off just before the entrance to the pier. We had to walk the remaining 100 yards or so dragging our bags. It looked like the driver did this to avoid the toll to enter the pier, which was supposedly included in the fare. Again, not a huge deal, but all in all, I cannot recommend using this service.

However, i highly recommend the Hotel Golden.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the front desk and dining room area.

I took my daughter and 2 granddaughter to Rome and stayed at the Hotel Golden. The family is so friendly and helpful, I can only say positive things about the experience. They helped us get last minute tour tickets that were more than we could have expected. We wanted to see the Colosseum, but the tour ended up taking us on a 3 hour tour that ended at Piazza Novella. It was well worth the money! If you prefer walking everywhere, it is a bit of a hike to some locations, but we managed to do everything without any problems. For those who prefer, they are also close to the metro. What makes the trade off worth while is being across the street from the Borghese Gardens and on a quiet street. My daughter and I would sit in the window at night sipping wine and watching the locals go by.

Room Tip: WE went for a deluxe room and got the corner with a nice window to look out plus a large window in t...
