As others have said this is a wonderful hotel at the top of the Via Veneto across from the Villa Borghese gardens and within walking distance of the major sites of interest. The family that runs the hotel is warm and helpful and gracious. The service is FABULOUS. They picked up tiickets for our papal audience before we arrived to Rome, made advanced reservations to the Borghese museum for us, put an extra bed in our room when our daughter joined us unexpectedly, and gave us advice, suggestions, and directions to make our stay in Rome a joy. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts abundant and fresh. This is our 4th time in Rome and we have finally found our place. Leaving, I felt that we had friends in Rome. Most highly recommended.

This location near the Via Veneto is superb-------same neighborhood as many of the top hotels: Marriott et al.

The hotel is spotless, offers a superb breakfast buffet, provides extraordinary support in planning your Rome stay-----e.g. which busses to use, where to eat, great walks, where to buy a Rome Pass, etc, etc. Giuseppe is both the owner and one of the world's best concierges.

Our room was accurately listed as a small double. And it was small but very acceptable. We still loved it, and felt that we got an excellent value for our money.

This was our first night on our first European adventure as a family and we were THRILLED with Hotel Golden. My husband, two daughters (ages 9 & 11) and I felt completely at home. Not only did the family welcome us with open arms, they were available prior to our visit to answer many of our questions and provide us with local recommendations. We would definitely stay here again. Oh, and DON'T miss the breakfast. It is DELICIOUS.

Room Tip: Remember that you're in Europe so if you're looking for a room for the family, it will proba...

If you like service, you're going to love this hotel. Hotel Golden is a family run hotel and it's the nicest family you'd want to know. Marco and Giuseppe, the brothers, bent over backwards to make sure we had the best possible time in Rome we could have. Their advice was invaluable in getting into some of the attractions with a minimum amount of effort. The location was excellent - just a couple of blocks away from the beautiful Villa Borghese Park. The room was very nice and spotless. But the best part of Hotel Golden was its breakfast. Home cooked and prepared by the mother, it was one of the best breakfasts we had in our month long European vacation. I would highly recommend Hotel Golden for a quality stay at a great value.

This is the complete package, people. A very good location in a nice neighborhood, less than 10 min walk from the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. It is a family run business, which we found really nice. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and breakfast is HOMEMADE by a mother and daughter combination.

We stayed in a 'small double room' which some other reviewers have noted is small. Perhaps the name of the room should have tipped them off. Yes, it was small, but it was cute and perfectly fine for us and our giant suitcases. Rome isn't exactly the type of place where you spend heaps of time in your room anyway.

I will strongly recommend Hotel Golden to anyone I know traveling to Rome and would stay there again without hesitation.

It was so difficult to find a reasonably-priced hotel in a good neighborhood of Rome, as the prices in this city are quite high. But we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel and discovered its fine location. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. But what made it a GREAT stay was the attentiveness of the two owners - brothers - at the front desk. They immediately assisted us in planning activities and finding nearby restaurants. When we had difficulties communicating with the rental car agency, one of the brothers went out of his way to help us. You don't get that kind of personal attention in a big hotel!

My wife and I arrived at noon; at the first moment we did not realize even the entrance , yet after the door have been opened we found ourselves in a very friendly place. The hotel is located near Villa Borghese, a huge lovely park and ancient walls of Rome. Almost 10-15 minutes walking to Scalinata di Piazza di Spagna. From there you can get to everywhere in the city of Rome. From the first moment we had the feeling like a family and not just travelers. Stepping in the over 100 years old elevator led us directly to the place. The place is very clean, relaxing without noise. Our room was upgraded to a suite as a surprise for us. We did not realize that other people are using the hotel until we met in the breakfast room. The food is prepared by mom and served very elegantly, clean and rich. We had all the information needed to visit every site in Rome within a few minutes. No need for tourist books. On arrival we were welcomed & given a personalized map of Rome, mapping all major attractions. Any information you need is given by the sons of the family. Wi-Fi is free. The rooms are so clean and agreeable. Air condition is available but mostly not needed.
We arrived from the central station by Buss, very easily and after a few minutes’ walk. The hotel booked our taxi to the airport for a fair price limousine service.
Above all you feel like a part of the family and the charming people there will give you the feeling that you are a part of the place and a part of the Loria's family, experiencing being a Rome citizen for a few days. Wonderful!!!

Room Tip: The Family will take care , do not worry
