I stayed at the Hotel Golden March 18-25. We wanted to stay somewhere in the centre city, but not pay too much. This is a charming hotel, located within walking distance to the metro and to many of the local sites at a very reasonable price. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment and it was just perfect for our group of six ladies. The cots were a little uncomfortable for the two that had to sleep on them, but overall we were very, very happy. The breakfast was very satisfactory. Being Americans, we are used to big breakfasts, but the fresh pastries and sweets, along with the meat and eggs kept me satisfied until lunch time!! Marco and Giuseppe were very good to us and helped us find wherever we wanted to go, call us a taxi if we needed and were just very helpful. The hotel is actually on the 2nd floor and the apartment we stayed in was on the 3rd floor. There is a little elevator, that those who didn’t feel they wanted to walk up another flight of stairs could take. The last night of our stay, we had to move into a couple of the smaller rooms on the 2nd floor. They were smaller, but we didn’t go to Rome to stay in our hotel rooms, so I feel they would have been adequate, as well. If I were returning, I would try to get the apartment again, as it is roomier. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and when I return to Rome, will surely stay at the Golden Hotel again!

This was our 2nd time in Rome and in the Hotel Golden and we would definitely come back again. I believe the hotel can hardly be beaten in the friendliness of its owners and staff, cleanliness of the rooms, quality of breakfast and the general family-like atmosphere.
We felt welcome and enjoyed our stay - again. Perhaps the only downside this time was the position of the room - a bit dark as it was turned towards the inside of the building, so just ask for a different room if available. We did not mind as we only spent nights in.

Hotel Golden is certainly a hidden gem in Rom. We had one of the family rooms which gives enough space for four. Room and bath are very clean, nicely decorated and well maintained. WLAN access in the room is sufficient (in case you need it).
The service provieded by the family run business is very friendly and professional.
Considering the the upscale location on top the Hotel Golden provides an excellent value for the cost. The lcoation of our room was quiet enough that we could sleep even with open window. The breakfast room is a bit small, but with a little bit patience one can enjoy very nice breakfast missing nothing (the litle omlet featuring pieces of fine Italian ham is particular tasty.. :-) ).
Bus is a few minutes walking away and takes you within three stops to the metro/underground.

Just returned from a trip to Rome and had a great stay at the Hotel Golden. The staff/owners took such good care of us. They arranged to have us picked up at the airport. Though we paid for the service, it was such a relief to have someone pick us up and take us to the hotel and not have to worry about finding my way in a new city after a long flight. They stored our luggage while our rooms were being readied and gave us directions to nearby sights.
Were were very close to a Metro stop, walking distance to the Spanish Steps and the Villa Borghese and the Trevi Fountain.
Also near by are fabulous restaurants and shopping. We took a side trip to Florence for several days and the Hotel Golden stored most of our luggage for us so we wouldn't have to take so much on the train with us.
The safety and security of the facility was excellent! We had 2 teenage girls with us and we were not in connecting rooms, but we were very comfortable with the security measures taken by the Hotel.
The free breakfast every morning was excellent as well. It was just a great stay!!!!!!

We just stayed at the Golden for 7 nights and it was great! We decided to stay for a few reasons...they reply to e-mails within a day, which is good to know when you are booking overseas. They arranged the car to and from the airport, which is one of the best rates out there and timely. Lastly, they have remained high on the tripadvisor list!
We stayed in the Jr. Suite, which was amazing. The bedroom had a king bed that had been turned into two twins, for us, and had a chaise that could have been a third twin. There was a flat screen tv with 300 plus channels...but only two in English. Spacious does not even describe this room...not only were there 18 foot ceilings, but soooo much room. Then there was a sitting area off of the room with a table for 6 people. We found ourselves using the table for planning the next day and playing cards:-) Lastly is the bathroom, with a double sink, a huge walk-in shower and again plenty of room! We really thought the lights that changed in the shower were unique, as well as the square toilet!
We would recommend this place to anyone going to Rome! If you are staying awhile the Jr. Suite is the best way to go.
Hotel Golden is located just a block from Harry’s Bar and beautiful Via Veneto. It is in a safe area and there is a little family owned place down the block called Lotti, where we often ate dinner or grabbed pastries to bring to the room. We loved our stay thanks to this hotel, and the friendly people who run it!

After an overnight flight to Rome, we were greeted by Marco who welcomed us with open arms. We were able to get into our room before check-in time which was a welcome relief after the long flight. Marco gave us a map of Rome and highlighted all the places we wanted to see. Recommendations for good food were amazing and help with navigating the metro were extremely helpful. We felt like this was our home away from home, breakfast was yummy and Marco and Guiseppe were able to help get us reservations for the very booked Borghese Museum. We absolutely recommend Hotel Golden as a Welcome Home away from Home for all visitors.
