This was our first visit to the Hotel Golden, situated right across the road from the beautiful Borghese park and in a quiet street at the top of Via Veneto. Run mainly by two brothers, who were friendly, helpful and efficient, this is a small family hotel run on good old-fashioned service and attention to detail.
We are no strangers to Rome and have stayed in various categories of hotel in the city but although by no means the most expensive, ithe Golden may well become one of our favourites, due to a combination of well-appointed and relatively spacious rooms (go for the top-of-the-line), typically simple but appetising breakfasts and excellent attention to cleanliness.
The rooms are sound-proofed and double -glazed but you can open the windows and shutters. The room was a good size as was the bathroom.
Our hosts gave us excellent recommendations for local restaurants and one in particular, a small, cosy, family-style trattoria frequented by many locals, will certainly be on our list for future visits. Our four nights there were most enjoyable and we will use this hotel again. My only slight gripe: the wi-fi did not work all that well in our room. My mini-notebook was new and worked well elsewhere in Rome.
