“Another great stay”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

This was our second time in Rome together and we again chose to stay at the Hotel Golden. It is a small, family run hotel in an upmarket location. We felt completely safe at all times and the staff are very helpful and attentive. We walked miles during our 4 night stay but also used public transport to visit the catacombs (metro and bus). At 1 Euro for a 75 minute duration ticket, it was remarkable value. In addition to their help with this, the hotel staff also informed us of the little 116 bus that you catch just around the corner from Harry's Bar. This was a delight and wound its way through narrow cobbled streets before eventually crossing the river to our intended destination of Castel D'Angelo. Following a visit to the Vatican and the area around the castle, it was a pleasure to catch the same bus back again and save on the walking for a change.

The hotel staff are very helpful and genuinely want to help you make the most of your stay. The location is very convenient for wherever you want to visit. We loved our stay at Hotel Golden and hope to visit again in the near future. We would highly recommend it for location, safety and its genuinely helpful staff.

Avoid the pizza restaurant just around the corner (Bruschetta). It's expensive for what it is and they attempted to add a rip-off 5.4 Euro cover charge for bread that we didn't ask for or touch.

We stayed here after an awful hotel stay in Florence and thank goodness we did! Family run business done professionally.

Service: They settled us in quickly, provided and reviewed a map with us, made tons of great recommendations and even suggested we visit the Villa Borghese park for bike rides and museums, while there was still light out on our first day. They recommended the best routes to take, how to maximize our time and trips, they were just wonderful. We enjoyed Rome so much and largely due to them! They welcome you in and you can feel that they truly want you to enjoy your time in Rome and at their establishment. You can see the pride in their service.

Hotel: Cozy, very clean and in a great location. Its a "budget price" but way above other budget hotels and B&Bs and I'd give a 3.5 star hotel ranking. We went every where from here. There is plenty within walking distance or a short bus ride. Even for the Vatican, Colosseum, Spanish Steps we never took more than 15 mins to get there. Great pizzerias, wine shops and delis all around on the same street. We ate at the La Bruschetta 3x, right below our room window and loved it.

Room: Double Room Superior - Clean, large bathroom (in ours), robes, great lighting, large windows to leave open and take in the sights and sounds around us. Bed and pillows were comfy. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, sound comes in through the door but only is a slight problem if it is quiet in your room and not if you are talking or watching TV. I'm a light sleeper and slept soundly with my ear plugs.

Breakfast: Excellent, fresh, plentiful and the variety was outstanding. It completely fueled us for our long days out.

Would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back!

Room Tip: Double Superior Room facing Via Sardegnia. the street is not that busy and we got great light.

We would definitely recommend this hotel. This was our first, and best hotel of three that we stayed at in Rome. Located a little north in the city, it was easily accessible to many sights. The room we had was a little small for three adults, but typical for Europe. We didn't spend much time in the room so it wasn't an issue. It was clean and quiet. The family who run the hotel were very friendly and helpful. They gave suggestions for restaurants and sights we hadn't originally considered but were very glad we explored (the park just to the north) and told us the city was safe except an area they marked on the map for us. The hotel is in walking distance to many big sights-Trevi fountain and Spanish steps. Breakfast is typical for Italian hotels-rolls, oranges, espresso. They held our luggage for us as we explored the city the next day and called a taxi to take us to our next hotel (for our tour of the country). Enjoy the experience!

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Hotel Golden. We took our two daughters to Rome and were welcomed by the friendly staff to a clean, comfortable family room. Staff very helpful. Great location - beside Villa Borghese - the girls loved hiring rickshaw-style bicycles in the park. Quiet street location but easy walking distance to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. The hotel staff organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport on arrival which was great.

Room Tip: Family room - lovely big double bed and smaller fold up double bed fro children.

Stayed 3 nights late March. Good location near Villa Borghese. About 10-15 mins walk from Spanish Steps. Characterful building with quaint old fashioned elevator. Hotel occupies the first floor. Staff very helpful, Guiseppe provided map and suggestions of where to go as well as local restaurant recommendations. Room was comfortable, not huge but everything was clean and of a good standard. Some noise from the street during the day but quiet at night. . Breakfast room is quite small but there was always a table free during our stay. Would happily stay here again.
