“Great value, good location”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We stayed 2 nights here as part of a longer trip to Sorrento and were very pleased. We arrived early, after catching an early train, but were made to feel very welcome and shown a bathroom where we could freshen up before starting out on the day's sightseeing while our bags were looked after. Just between the American Embassy and Villa Borghese (park) is a great location, close to the Spanish steps and lots of other sights within walking diatance, but amazingly, this hotel was as quiet as could be - I took earplugs as usual but they stayed in my bag! Breakfasts here are amazing, just like everyone says, with hot food and fresh fruit and you can have a fresh expresso if you ask. Bedroom and bathroom were ok and clean - ok not huge, but remember this is a capital city, I've certainly paid more for less in London. Ditto for public spaces - pay more if you want some. We found the service friendly enough, but not intrusive, so just right. And of course they were happy to keep our bags after checking out while we spent our 3rd day seeing more sights before getting on the train back to Naples and Sorrento.

My family stayed 7 nights at the Hotel Golden in August in 2 superior double rooms. They were spacious,comfortable and immaculately clean. Breakfast every morning was delicious. Hot croissants, eggs , breads and pastries were enjoyed by all of us every morning. The hotel owners always greeted us warmly and gave us invaluable advice on restaurants, transportation and sightseeing. Coming back to the Hotel Golden after a long day of sightseeing was like coming home. We are used to staying at large hotel chains, but I would stay at the Hotel Golden over any of those large luxurious places. It was probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in and so reasonably priced. I hope we are able to return to Rome and this incredible hotel in the future... I will recommend this hotel to anyone who travels to Rome as well.

This is a quaint and nice family run hotel in a fabulous location in Rome. You can easily walk to many of the main sights including the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. The hotel is on the second level of a larger building. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the rooms were large and comfortable. They also served a nice breakfast.

Would highly recommend this hotel. Room is very clean and quiet with double glazed windows. The location was perfect within easy walk to all sites and close to the large villa Borghese gardens. Excellent recommendations for restaurants and best route to sites on map provided were of great benefit. Buffet breakfast was fresh and delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Family run hotel.

Small, but I didn't go to Rome to stay in the hotel. Staff could not have been more accommodating. Restaurant suggestions and reservations. Tour recommendations and bookings. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. They even let us eat early one morning. This hotel was spotless. The room was a little small, but we didnt spend much time in our room.

Hotel Golden is a gem. Very well sited, easily accessible from the Termini, within walking distance of central Rome and all of the wonderful things to see and do. And really comfortable indeed.

Stayed for the start of a family holiday in Sicily, and we had the family suite, with two bedrooms, a good bathroom and a nice communal area. The suite was really great, spacious and comfortable, air-conditioned, and perfect for the family - there were 4 of us. The owners are really friendly and helpful, and made us feel very much at home. Breakfast was included in our rate, and was excellent, with a great selection. And of course, great coffee.

There is a small elevator, so moving heavy luggage between floors is no hassle. The hotel can arrange transport to and from the airport (€50 flat rate), and are very responsive to email if you need to arrange stuff ahead of your arrival.

Awesome, we will be back!

Thank you to all the lovely staff at Hotel Golden for making our stay in Rome extra special. After a long journey it was lovely to be greeted warmly. We received a map of the city and excellent directions which made great use of our short stay in Rome. The recommendation for a restaurant was to a lovely traditional trattoria with crispy pizzas, tasty pastas and fabulous Parma ham!

And I cannot forget to mention the buffet breakfast! This was extra special....a wide variety of cooked goodies, hams, pastries, juices which were all presented beautifully. Just the thing to fuel our family ahead of the long days of sight seeing. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!
