Reviewed 4 August 2009

Had a great 3 days with the family in this great value hotel. Rooms are clean and functional although the air con minimum setting can make sleeping in hot weather a little uncomfortable. Staff are efficient and functional rather than overly friendly and this probably knocked the place down to very good rather than excellent for our overal rating. The breakfast on the other hand is a memorable experience; a kind of 'breakfast shrine' with food set on a mini-altar , candles all around and piped music akin to an italian version of the 1960's merseybeat. Gerry and the pacemakers eat your heart out! Location is a bit out the way but in a safe and well to do area with 2 cheap pizarrias nearby. The staff at the Lotto gealataria around the corner are great. If you are like us and want to walk Rome then this is a place well worth considering at the price. Visit the Hotel website directly for the best deals.

We just spent three nights in our first visit to Rome. The Hotel Golden is run by a great family. Both Marco and Giuseppe were so kind in helping us even before our stay, providing information to us. When we checked in, Marco provided some great recommendations including a local neighborhood restaurant (take their recommendations!), which did not feel like a tourist trap. The room was beautifully decorated, with good air conditioning ( a real plus in a Roman summer), a great bath room, and free wi-fi. We started each day with a breakfast that had great home baked pastries and an array of food. The hotel is just off of Via Veneto, which provided a beautiful walk along one of the nicest streets in all of Rome. It was a great, quiet retreat from the busy nature of Rome. If you don't mind a 10 minute stroll down Via Veneto to the major sights(Spagna, Trevi, Pantheon, etc), you can't go wrong with Hotel Golden. Thanks to Marco, Giuseppe and their entire family for making our first visit memorable. We will definitely be back.

Hotel Golden was in a perfect location close to all the attractions. We have stayed for 7 days from 6-13 july Good price. We used the transfer from airport to hotel that was ok. The rooms were spotless and all elegantly updated. Very good beds. We lived in room 101 (small) and 109 (bigger). In 101 there were some noice coming from the reception. I think an extra door in the rom would solve that problem. Marko and Giussepe was excellent and gave us perfect recommedations for any questions we had from dining to walking routes. Breakfast could be a little better - there was to much sweet bread/cakes. We liked very much all in all and would stay again.

Hotel Golden was in a perfect location--about 5 minutes from the Borghese Gardens where there are museums, cafes, restaurants, playgrounds, bike rentals, etc. The rooms were spotless and all elegantly updated. The hotel staff was excellent and gave us perfect recommedations for any questions we had from dining to walking routes. Also a 5 min. walk from the metro and there's a cab stand around the corner, along with a cafe, small market, and numerous restaurants/bars/shopping. All this and breakfast included--what a great deal!

I have just came back from rome. I stayed in hotel Golden for 7 days and I think that was the best choice i could have done. The room was quite big, very clean and confortable and so was the bathroom. The breakfast was just great. The location very convenient, just a short walk to many attractions. The staff-especially Marko and Giussepe-was very friendly and helped us with everything we wanted. Tranfer to and from the aiport was great! I would definately stay there again!

After scouring trip advisor I came across Hotel Golden in Rome. Well ... I am now the next traveller to highly recommend this hote. A wonderful family run hotel in an excellent location in Rome. While were were in Rome the G8 was in town and this hotel is on the door step of all the 5* hotels but no doubt at a fraction of their asking prices. Easy to find, airconditioned and very clean. Room was small in size but fair for what you would most probably get in most smaller hotels. Marco and Guiseppi were most helpful and accommodating. If in Rome again, I would most definately reserve a room at the Hotel Golden again.

Stayed here for 6 nites in June22-24 and July 6-10, 2009.Great location to see all the sites in Rome. Very nice hotel with a good breakfast. Stayed in a very small room but it was very inexpensive (68 euros/nite). It has to be the best deal in Rome. Very clean and very quiet. Very helpful family that runs the hotel. I highly recommend the hotel, especially if you want to be close to all the sites and keep the costs reasonable.
