“Small but sufficient”
Reviewed 8 June 2009

The Hotel Golden is in a pretty good location and very reasonably priced for Rome. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable but the bedroom and bathroom were very small. We stayed 3 nights and the room was fine for this long but might have felt cramped if we'd stayed for a whole holiday.

The Hotel Golden family and staff were excellent from the first time we emailed them 3 months before our trip to the last day we stayed there. We were in room 111 and it was very quite and roomy. The bathroom was a nice size as well. Everything was very clean. The toilet would be a little tight for a tall person, but was fine for me(5'9") and my wife. Breakfast was simple and very good every morning. Giuseppe and Marco gave us great recommendations for places to eat and how to get around town. I would highly recommend this hotel in a great location.

We stayed at Hotel Golden for 5 days in late April 2009. Our room (101) was big with king bed lots of pillows, and very nice bath with toilet and bidet. Change of towels everyday even a bathrope were there for each of us.
The breakfast is solid, with several kind of bread, serials, fresh fruit,juice, eggs and ham and good coffee. Even chocolate cake and small sweet italian cakes are served.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and the family will take care of you.
The hotel is in a quiet area 10 min walk from Piazza Barberini whre you will find buses and a metrostation.
The hotel offers airport pickup for 40 euro - thats a good choice.
Our room was superior and we paided 128 euro pr. night incl. breakfast

Location:
This hotel is ideal for those who wish to stay close to Via Veneto at a reasonable price. Rome being the almost-village that it is, one can easily walk between all parts. Thus, location-wise, my personal preference after many stays in this enchanting city is for the more bustling neighborhoods. But if a quieter and more upscale area is what you prefer, then the hotel location is ideal. I found public transportation options in this area poor compared to staying in a number of other locations, and especially the Termini area, where easy connections to any spot in Rome and vicinity are possible, especially later in the evening. After a certain hour, public transport to the hotel is definitely not easy. The taxi stand is around the corner and convenient.

Rooms:
The rooms are spotless and cleaned well daily. They are very basic, with relatively comfortable beds, clean linens and sound-proof windows. Although you can hear guests in the hallway, you can’t hear any street noise at all. The bathroom we had was a very good size, but the shower stall and sink are of the miniature variety found throughout Italy which larger size guests may find a bit inconvenient. Water pressure was OK, but hot water availability was variable.

Our TV did not work, it has multiple broken images, but we didn’t really want to bother them about it as we did not need it. If we had mentioned it, I am sure it would have been replaced or fixed.

Internet: A huge bonus is the great free internet service! Super-fast and efficient, this was the best we saw throughout Italy.

Breakfast: Breakfast provides more variety than most hotels in Italy, and the care taken in the beautiful ornate place settings, and the constant attention to the food display was almost touching.

Staff: This is a family run hotel, and you’ll likely get to meet every family member over the course of coming and going from the hotel at various hours. They take the running of the hotel seriously (a bit too seriously at times), but its nice to see their level of organization and dedication. They went out of their way for all the guests, repeatedly.

Altogether, this is a very well run hotel, but not in my favorite location. For others, location may be perfect.

Hotel Golden is right by the Villa Borghese, in a really beautiful and charming neighborhood. I loved the location because it didn't feel overwhelmed by tourists, but was only a ten minute walk from the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. The neighborhood actually managed to make Rome feel like a small, comfortable city for the few days we were there on this trip.

Oh, and excellent wifi. And blessedly thick windows...the considerable street noise was totally shut out.

The hotel feels very safe...you have to buzz up and identify yourself to be let in, and the concierge keeps your keys at the desk for you. The service is excellent. The proprietor of the hotel gave us a great map and outlined an easy route to take us past all of the sights in Rome, and circled a few good restaurants in the neighborhood as well. Also, I got sick while I was there, and he recommended a nearby clinic and was very helpful and concerned. He also arranged a car service to the airport for us.

The room was small but really nicely done, with a comfortable bed and linens, nice tiled floors, and a clean and newly renovated bathroom. Everything seemed recently renovated, modern, and spotless. Almost all of the guests were American, it seemed, and I could see why. It wasn't exactly a quaint, historic inn, but was instead a very clean and modern and comfortable hotel, which is sometimes exactly what you need in an overwhelming city like Rome!

We stayed for 3 days, and it was excellent. The family run business really shows the care that they have put into every aspect of the Hotel. Maps with directions and ideas as to what to see, do and eat were provided. The room we has had to big windows which provided lots of brightes and fresh air. The continental breakfast was beautifully presented, with lots of options. Teresa, it was a joy chatting with you, you made me feel like a member of the family. The location was excellent!

This hotel was clean, and centrally located. It is family run with a warm friendly atmosphere. The rooms are modest but definately workable. The shower is very small. I would stay here again.
