We chose the Hotel Golden through Tripadvisor and felt lucky to be there - we loved it. The location is not central Rome but many of the main tourist sites are in walkable distance and the lovely Borghese Garden is a block away. The area is quiet but not dead - there are many good restaurants nearby and, best of all, we always felt safe in the neighborhood. A busy restaurant (complete with accordion player) was just across from our room but our excellent soundproof window shut out any noise. This, combined with a comfortable mattress and pillows, made for five sleep-filled nights - after all the walking we did, this was welcome. The room was quite small but comfortable; the bathroom was kept spotless by the staff, and clean towels appeared every day. We were very happy with breakfast which was excellent - always a good fresh variety of meats, cheeses, breads, fruit, cold cereal, etc. What really sets the Golden apart is the service - and makes this hotel a great value! Marco and Giuseppe were SO helpful, spent time answering every question (in excellent English, BTW), recommended tours and restaurants, had the weather forecast every morning (it was rainy so this was important in planning our days) and told us specifically which buses and trains to use. Their generous advice made a big difference in our experience of Rome and we are forever grateful. If you want room service, a hotel restaurant, or corporate desk staff, this hotel is not for you. However, the warmth, friendliness and knowledge of Rome exhibited here made us wish we could stay longer - they were happy to arrange transport from the airport (40 EU), tour bookings, museum reservations, etc. It reminded us of the family-run pensiones of days gone by; the kind of place that figures into your memories of the city and makes you want to come back. Hopefully, we'll get to stay at the Golden again soon!
