Reviewed April 15, 2014

Recently stayed here for three nights. It should have been four but I screwed up on the dates. No problem though as Guiseppe promptly located and booked another hotel for the missing night, even apologising that it was a chain hotel.

The reason I mention this is that the family are genuine and really look after their guests, it just felt like staying with your own relatives in Rome.

We stayed in a family room on the second floor, which can open up for 8-9 guests. It was clean and comfortable and more than adequate. Breakfast was tasty and a good selection, although the dining area is limited but they have plans for a breakfast area on the second floor.

Hotel location is near to the Villa Borghese at the top of Via Veneto which is a nice stroll down to the centre. Trevi fountain was only 15 min walk.

I wouldn't hesitate to use again, purely because of the people. All the staff are the family and it shows - they care and will do anything to help you.

Hotel Golden truly was a great experience in Rome. Clean, comfortable and safe rooms in a quiet area near Piazza Barberini. Very friendly and helpful staff always there to assist in advise for restuarants, tours or just directions around the city. Very close (walking distance) to the A train or bus stops with access to anywhere quickly in the city. There is nothing I would change about our stay at this terrific hotel, I will recommend Hotel Golden to all our friends and family when traveling to Rome and will be staying here again when we return in the future.

What more can we say that has not been said before. This is a wonderful family who will go out of their way to make your visit as pleasant as humanly possible. We did a lot of research, and this was the only hotel we seriously considered based upon price, location and tripadvisor reviews. Yes you can get a little closer to “some” of the main attractions but we did not feel the little shorter walk warranted an extra 100 Euros per night for a comparable property. We found all the estimated walking times posted on the Hotel’s website to be accurate. Anyway, what’s there not to love about walking the streets of Rome at any time of the day or night. We stayed 4 nights from the 18th to the 22nd of March. We were in the first room right by the reception desk and of course it received a little more foot traffic, but we did not find this to be a problem. This was an upgrade from our original room, and the room was available to us when we arrived at the hotel at 9AM that morning. We very much appreciated the early check in, and it allowed us to see many of the sights that first day after our overnight flight from the USA.
We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast every morning along with the fun conversation from some of the other guests. We would love to return next spring, and if we’re fortunate enough to do so we would not consider staying anywhere else. Maria Teresa, Giuseppe, Marco, Mamma Theresa, Alina ‘thank you” so much for everything!!

We recently spent two nights at the Golden Hotel in Rome. We usually do not write reviews for hotels, but this stay was special. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, although like most hotels in Europe, smaller by U.S. standards. The Golden offered a very nice breakfast buffet with lots of variety. The price for the room seemed quite reasonable to us for the location.

What made this stay really special is the staff. Giuseppe and his Family really made us feel welcome. They answered all of our questions, helped us out with making various reservations, had great recommendations for dinner, and left us with the feeling they would help us in any way they could.

We loved our stay at Hotel Golden. It was a great family run hotel in a fantastic location. Everything was perfect from the cleanliness of the rooms, the great quality of the food and the beautiful friendly people who made you feel like family friends and not guests. I will certainly be returning one day and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone considering a stay in Rome. Thank you Marco, Giuseppe and to all the rest of your beautiful family for making our stay so welcoming and enjoyable. Your tips on Rome made our holiday so carefree and easy. We can not wait to return.

We could not be happier with the location and service of this small, lovely hotel. Location is great - a few blocks from train station but enough off the beaten path to not feel like you are in a touristy area. One of the aspects I appreciated most about this hotel is that they are really attentive to their guests. Initially, I made reservations over the internet. I received a prompt confirmation from them. Later, I had to alter our dates - again, they promptly confirmed my new dates. Additionally, I had several questions about the area, etc. and they responded quickly and warmly each time to my emails. The service was of the same caliber when we arrived – welcoming and warm. After we left, Giuseppe wrote us a thank you email! Imagine that - a hotel that actually takes the time to appreciate their guests! Needless to say, we will be staying at Hotel Golden next year when we return to Rome. I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting that wonderful city!

Our first time to Rome and the service at this hotel was amazing. Marco and Guiseppe were wonderful and gave us heaps of tips and information about seeing the sights. The breakfasts were delicious thanks to Mamma Teresa, Alina, and Maria. We had the family suite and had so much room. We really felt like a home away from home. A wonderful start to our Italian vacation. Thanks to you all.
