Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Golden Rome
A friendly family hotel
We stayed at the Hotel Golden in November 04 the Hotel is small but the romms are very clean and very well maintained, its not far from the Spanish Steps and easy to walk to all the main attractions. We got a taxi from the train station and were ripped off big time, he charged us 60 euro for a very short trip so we walked arouund or used the metro which is cheap, Marco who's family run the hotel arranged a car to bring us to the airport for less than half the price of the taxi, we liked the hotel and the breakfast was plenty and you could have more it was no problem. Would stay there again
Comfort and Italian Touch
The hotel is a nice place to stay in Rome. It is beautifully located in one of the best (probably the best) areas of Rome, taking the first floor of an apartment house. We enjoyed our freshly and beautifully renovated room with an Italian touch in its decoration overlooking a nice ancient wall. The room had two big soundproof windows with shutters one can easily open. Inside the room had facilities corresponding to a 4star hotel: absolutely new furniture and fabrics, air-conditioner, mini-bar, safe, TV, etc. The bathroom was just lovely - spacious and comfortable with plenty of towels.
Everything to the smallest detail was absolutely new, clean and maintained with love.
The family running the hotel was friendly and helpful.
I recommend this hotel to everybody, who is looking for a quiet and comfortable lodging in Rome and does not need big lobbies and public areas.
Four star quality for two star price
Our family of five along with our neighbors truly enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Golden. This hotel takes up a single floor of a beautiful old four story building situated in a wonderful part of Rome. Golden is a small (15 guest rooms), intmate, family run inn with large, clean, beautifully decorated rooms, a fabulous breakfast (included)and a stone's throw from all the sites. We easily got to know Marco, Giuseppe, Mario and the rest of the warm, gracious family who own and run this fine hotel. They arranged for transportation to and from the hotel. They gave us suggestions on where to eat, places to go and answered any questions we had. We booked two rooms, one for our kids and one for the parents. It was great fist trip to ome and we would definately go back to Hotel Golden. Hotel Golden is four stars in our book!!!

... the rain cleared the poncho/ umbrella men were replaced by beggars with no legs, and men selling postcards and all sorts of things with the pope's face on them. That's something I've noticed about people here - they absolutely love the pope! There are pictures on him on everything; smiling, waving, giving the thumbs up, holding a koala (check the pictures for proof of this!). Vatican City is pretty impressive - the gardens and buildings are in perfect order, ...
... that much marble in entire communities. The history around the building was very cool along with the fact that as you walk out of the Pantheon you notice how much the city is built above the grade of the Pantheon. The history of the site is that the city was build on rubble and at some points was probably 20-30 feet higher.
Next stop, the Forum. We arrived at the heart of Rome's historical sights. So many sights and history ...
... just me and the guide! ..."Bonus!" I thought at first, but it meant I had to listen and concentrate for the full 3 hours! Alessio was brilliant at his job; he knew everything about everything (it seemed) and was very enthusiastic, but I was exhausted afterwards. I was pleased to visit the Trevi Fountain and tossed in the obligatory coin to wish to return. It was early morning and quite magical. Unfortunately my photos are really bad! However, ...
... matzo next to pane. Lots of street vendors and 15 minutes later, we were at the Pantheon. we took the requisite wander inside, noting Rafael's tomb and the beautiful dome, then headed to the square for a caffe at Ritirno al Passato Ristorante. Actually, Lindsay had white wine and I had a ciocoladda calda. We enjoyed sitting in a square, soaking up the sun, watching the tourists, IN ITALY for a bit, then moved on. Lindsay found a great gift for ...
... are told, and the burial place of St. Peter, allegedly. The interior of the church was certainly impressive with its vast size and elaborate and ornate decoration. For me, however, Michelangelo’s “Pieta” was enough to make the entire journey to Italy worthwhile. It is impossible not to view and understand this sculpture without being profoundly moved. Sadly, where once the work could be viewed closely, an attack in 1972 by a lunatic with a hammer ...
