Clean, very nice staff. We stayed one room in a double room and the rest of the days in the family apartment one stair up. The hotel is situated 10 min walk from the Barberini Metro. Its about 10 min walk from the spanish steps and Fontana di Trevi. Bout 30 min walk from Pantheon and 40 min walk from Colosseum. The hotel is a Family hotel with good breakfast and engaged staff. The regular floor is in need of modernization. The floor upstairs is very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite upstairs.

We stayed here over the Easter weekend and have never experienced such a friendly and wonderful staff. From the minute we were welcomed at the door to when we left, every minute we felt completely at home!
Cannot recommend this hotel enough!

Located in a nice neighborhood, close enough to city, subway, and good restaraunts, but far enough out that it was quiet. Service was incredible, including very good reccomendations for nearby restaraunts. Our room was very spacious and featured some awesome disco lights in the shower. In the midst of a busy city where nothing is inexpensive, hotel golden is a great place where a family can feel welcome.

We stayed here as a family of 4 in April 2014. Historically, we have generally stayed in larger, chain hotels so there were some aspects of the Hotel Golden that felt a little strange to us. That said, this family-run hotel was a very good base for us to explore Rome and we were very well looked after. We had a suite which comprised 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedrooms were an excellent size and the bathroom was small but clean and everything worked well. There was no communial living area as there is in many suites but we didn't seem to miss this. There was a mini-bar in both rooms and the beds were large (particularly the double) and firm. There was a slightly strange entry system in that a member of the family had to let us in to our room each time we wanted to get in, which seemed a little laborious, but I guess it was, at least, very secure! The only real point that could be improved, I felt, was the breakfast arrangements. Although the food itself was fine, and the freshly cooked omelettes were lovely, the size of the breakfast area was not large enough to cope with the residents all eating at once, and I had an uncomfortable moment where I had to stand around for 5 minutes until a place became free. Also, there is no 4 person tables which for a family of 4 is not ideal. This matter of the breakfast was a little frustrating but didn't spoil our stay there at all once we were used to it. Overall, I would say the Hotel Golden is an excellent "B&B" - warm, welcoming, friendly - but misses some of the key elements to be an excellent "hotel", so if you are used to or require the polite but anonymous treatment you get at the big chains then this might not be the place for you. However, I have to say that for a family-run, homely feel, this is really a very good place to stay. The location is also pretty good, being 15 minutes walk from Spagna or Barberini Metro stations and very close (100m) to the Via Veneto where there are loads of great restaurants for all budgets.

Room Tip: We had a Family Suite which was a good size and was on the 2nd floor.

My sister and i stayed at the Hotel Golden on either side of a tour we did in Italy. The direct communication from the hotel owners before and after our stay made us (and our mother who was sending us on our first big trip) feel so much more comfortable about staying somewhere abroad.The service once we got there was lovely and the location was great!We were able to walk around and get a taste of Rome as well as go to more touristy spots - it only took us 15 minutes to walk to the Spanish steps. We were given a map and tips on where to go to shop, visit and eat! The rooms were clean and comfortable. Having a lovely breakfast spread in the morning also made getting ready for the day that much easier. Would definitely recommend it for a place for people to stay!
