Brad had suggested getting up early to go IN the church at the vatican since you have to be there before 10am. Right before sleeping last night he suggested we sleep in and just visit the vatican I love him. We woke up and slowly got ready an made our way to the Vatican. Clearly our luck we get there ... wait in a line?? And get turned away as the …
Woke up early to grab breakfast and a train to La Spezia which would then get us to Rome. Of course the train we chose out of Cinque terre was running about 20 mins late... and any of you that know Brad he was as calm as a cucumber.... haha right. I had to reassure him it’d all work out about 40 times. Fast forward to us on our way to Rome …
Hotel Golden is located in the historic centre of Rome, near Villa Borghese. Its rooms are spacious, elegant and cozy. The staff is great, always friendly and helpful and willing to make you feel like you were at home. I especially liked the breakfast.

Although sadly I can already recognise the whirr (Whine?) of an approaching Ducatti over the scooters.
It is so different to Hong Kong. I love it here already.
It's laid back and busy.It's so old, with new bits everywhere.It's happy and friendly, with iron bars on the windows and triple lock on the doors. There is chaos, and noise and colour and it's brilliant.
It seems like the sort of crazy I would ...

Sunday was the day of bookings. I have officially booked trips to Venice, Barcelona, Spain, and a Roma soccer match for the remainder of our semester (I then created a budget for the rest of my money to be safe!). And that night we obviously watched the Lizzie McGuire Movie because how don't you watch it in Rome?!

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
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.
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!!!
