What we say: 4 stars

One of the longest-running hotels in the area, Golden Gate is not the loveliest spot in the world, but it is reliable in a kind of sturdy, no-nonsense way. Street 278 is home to a slew of hotels with the word Golden in their name, and rumour has it they're all owned by various members of the same extended family. Of all the Goldens, this one is the nicest, though the others are quite similar and perfectly fine too. There are actually two properties facing each other on the street. The building on the northern side has deluxe rooms and a handful of standards, while the one to the south has standards only, which tend to be small, pokey and windowless, but good value at around $15. They’re spotlessly clean and reasonably good value though if location is important to you. Back in the main building, deluxe rooms include a lacklustre breakfast and have TV, air-con, fridge and bathtubs and are very smart and quite well priced, while the standard rooms in this building are a little more depressing, being effectively windowless (a view of a wall doesn’t count), and are more dreary affairs. Both buildings are very popular with tour groups so a reservation is a good idea in high season. Daily same-day free laundry service is offered. There's also a conference room with air-con that seats up to 20 people and can be rented for $40 per day. The Golden Gate is close to the Independence Monument and plenty of bars and restaurants. The motodops and tuk tuk drivers outside can be a little bit pesky, though they are not aggressive.
