Gilded Halls (Japanese: 黄金の間 Golden Room) are special areas found inside Mystery Dungeons that have a golden appearance and contain valuable items in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. They have previously been referred to as Golden Chambers (Japanese: おうごんのま Golden Room) in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, and as (Japanese: しあわせのま Happiness Room) in Blazing, Stormy, and Light Adventure Squad.
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky
Golden Chambers appear as a special floor of a dungeon as the result of accepting a special job request after completing the main story to explore one, changing the destination floor of that job to a Golden Chamber. The job is complete as soon as the player steps on the staircase.
The Golden Chamber is a small floor which always has the same layout. It has two Deluxe Boxes in the center of the floor, surrounded by unbreakable walls in a rectangle with four waterways, one at the center of each edge of the walls. As a result, it is necessary to remove or cross the water to obtain the Deluxe Boxes. There are no enemy Pokémon, traps, or items other than the two Deluxe Boxes inside the chamber; however, weather is variable.
After proceeding to next floor, even if the player goes back to the same floor the Golden Chamber was on, the chamber will not appear without a job to explore it. This chamber can appear in almost any level and any dungeon.
The Deluxe Boxes obtained in a Golden Chamber can contain the following items:

Happiness Chambers share many of the same mechanics as Golden Chambers from Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky. Unlike Golden Chambers, they do not have items blocked off by waterways.
The Deluxe Boxes obtained in a Happiness Chamber can contain the same items as in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, as well as sweets.
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
Unlike in previous games, a Gilded Hall can have different floor layouts like normal dungeons. They can also contain traps and enemy Pokémon, and may even contain a Monster House. Enemy Pokémon can differ depending on what dungeon the player was in before entering a Gilded Hall. Entry to a Gilded Hall through Silent Tundra, Dreamy Island, and Moonlit Forest provides access to its inner chamber which allow players to recruit Tornadus, while the inner chamber accessed through Rusty Mountain, Jaws of the Abyss, and Smoking Mountain allow players to recruit Thundurus.
Sparkling floor tiles are common in Gilded Halls, and often hold Gold Ribbons. Poké can also be found in relatively large quantities.
As with Uncharted Roads, the player can be randomly warped into a Gilded Hall by a mysterious power. However, unlike Uncharted Roads, Gilded Halls have floor numbers.
Gilded Halls can be found in the following dungeons:
