Very homely,i already passed the word to some friends of mine and their are chequing it out thank you very much the service was excellent on sunday 25/03/07before leaving the hotel on the night the time change and we did not realize on the take the breakfast away because the time allready gone the staff kindly bought some food to our table and their did not complain or refuse
We asked for a romantic room upstairs with a nice view - and alberto, the very helkpfuly and friendly manager, has given us a great room with a wonderful view on the square with the market and church and his tower - we even could see the hill and mountains! Room was very cosey - little but not too little, beds are really nice, all clean, italian styled. Breakfast room in a cave very speciall and we had good fresh made coffee there. Location is great if you like to stay in a trendy and alteritave lifely aera with great bars, restaurants, small fashion and vintage store, lots of life music and art - not the overpriced and overrated touristic zone of rome, more the real rome - but also very close to Coloseum and termini - for those who are lazy - they can catch bus 71 or 492 nearby to vatican or plaza spagna, nr. 3 to colosseum - coming from the airport fiumcino its better to go with train FR 1 to Tiburtina Station and then taking the bus outside Nr.71 directly to Porto San Lorenzo (8 minutes). Theres a great enotecca leftside from hotel with antipasti buffet and great wine and also a super pizza to go place right from the hotel as well as the small market offers fresh fruits and cheese and more! At night, theres lots of people making it a reall scenic square. But - windows closing well, so it never is too loud if you wanna sleep well - we highly recommend the hotel and his friendly staff and the aera for those who are not to stiff and looking for something real in rome. (PS: Check out the micca club through the passage in via micca pietro) a great lounge and cocktail retro club!
It was nice to stay in this hotel . We really had great time. The staff was very welcoming and rooms were very clean. It was upto our expectations.
Excellent staff, very polite and helpful. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. The terrace was fantastic and very romantic. Good choice of food at buffet breakfast. Wi-fi in our room was very well. The location of the hotel is rather convenient: several small restaurants, cafes and supermarket () are nearb?. 15 minutes walk from Termini station, 10 minutes walk to subway (station Castro Pretorio). Wonderful hotel with nice personal and good service!
Hotel was clean, modern with friendly and helpful staff. Not as near Termini as I thought but worked to our advantage, Being a 10 to 15 min walk away from Termini, it was quiet at night with a good range of places to eat.
Der Aufenthalt im Hotel war gut, die Leistungen waren auch gut, lediglich, daß man wegen dem Lärm nachts nicht das Fenster öffnen konnte, war störend. Insgesamte Bewertung trotzalldem gut.
Hôtel agréable, très bon accueil, petit déjeuner correct . Le plus ou le moins c'est selon : dans une zone avec des bars, pizzerias, cinéma, donc les chambres sur rue sont bruyantes
f the nine hotels we stayed in during previous travels to Italy, our ten-day stay [May, 2006] at Hotel Laurentia was our favorite. Our room [#203] had a comfortable full size queen bed â€“ not two twins pushed together. The bathroom shower was enclosed [be it small] with daily hot water. The air conditioner worked as well as the small refrigerator [once you pluged it in]. The room overlooked the open market and church. Yes, it was noisy outside late into the night, but that was corrected once the window was closed. Indeed, there was a lot of graffiti and posters on the buildings giving the area a rough appearance. But the neighborhood was safe, close to excellent gelato stands and restaurants free of annoying tourists. It was also close to bus transportation or a 20-minute walk to the bus terminal located at Romeâ€™s main train station. Taxi service was easily available. The meter rate begins at the point of departure for the taxi, not from the hotel. But not to worry, average speed to the airport is 110 mpr. The breakfast buffet was outstanding with multiple selections of grains, cereals, fruits, juice, pastries, yogart and, upon request, excellent cappuccino. All of this served in a comfortable dining area. The staff was attentive, efficient, and responsive to requests. Of special recognition is the detailed connoisseur service provided by Alberto at the front desk. He is outstanding â€“ speaking several languages.
Very nice hotel, we very much enjoyed our stay. It is particularly close to the University which we found convenient as we were attending a conference. At the same time it was an easy walk to most city sights. There were several very good restaurants within easy walking for excellent lunches and better dinners.
Laurentia Hotel is conveniently located close to Termini railroad station with buses, restaurants and convenience stores very close. It is not grand but comfortable and welcoming. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We have stayed here 3 times now and I would certainly return again.
Hotel confortable , limpio , tranquilo . La habitación 405 es extraordinaria . Una lástima que no se pueda tomar un café en la terraza . Estaría bien una cafetera ( o servicio de habitaciones ?) Es muy importante que se indiquen las muy especiales caracteristicas de su ubicación . Barrio de San Lorenzo : Juvenil , bullicioso y bastante lejos del centro ( aunque bien comunicado por transporte público) . Un taxi hasta el trastevere de noche puede costar más de 20€
Hemos tenido una experiencia muy recomendable en este hotel. La situación , en el barrio de San Lorenzo ,es perfecta ya que está en una zona llena de bares , restaurantes y pizzerias, cuando volviamos al hotel por la noche soliamos cenar en una pizzeria Formula 1 super buena y economica. En el hotel el personal amable y atento en todo monento y la habitación que nos asignaron correcta, parket y cama kingsize comodisima , el baño era pequeño pero limpisimo. Estamos muy contentos de haber elegido por segunda vez esta hotel en Rom
Good hotel in Roman term of availability and respectively to the price/quality ratio. about 10-15 minutes walk from termini station (so if coming by train - take a taxi and don't drag your bags!). lovely frontdesk people.
Gutes Frühstück. Freundliches und kinderfreundliches Personal. Nicht zentrumsnah, aber Metrostation in 15 Gehminuten Entfernung. Für römische Verhältnisse ruhig gelegen; gilt für kühlere Jahreszeit wenn man bei geschlossenem Fenster schläft.
Personal sehr bemüht; Frühstück in Ordnung (mit Cappuccino, der nicht aus dem Automaten kommt); sehr gute Busverbindung ins Zentrum (Endstation: San Silvestro); excellente Trattoria gleich um die Ecke (Armando), die anscheinend bei den Italienern angesagt ist.
Das Personal ist extrem freundlich. Die Lage der Unterkunft ist befriedigend. Busanbindung ins Zentrum findet sich nur wenige Schritte vom Hotel (Bus 71 bis Piazza S.Silvestro, oder 492 in die Altstadt um die Piazza Navona) In unmittelbarer NÃ¤he des Hotels viele preiswerte Pizzerien und Osterien, die fast nur von Einheimischen besucht werden. FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck o.k., wenngleich fÃ¼r deutsche VerhÃ¤ltnisse etwas dÃ¼rftig. Das Zimmer (ein Einzelzimmer, Nr.202) ist sehr ruhig, doch ist die RaumgrÃ¶ÃŸe absolut minimal. Die TÃ¼r der darin befindlichen Mini- bar lÃ¤ÃŸt sich wegen der Beengtheit nicht Ã¶ffnen; aber die Minibar ist ohnehin leer. Die Ablage im Bad hÃ¤ngt so weit herunter, dass der Wasserhahn darunter sich kaum Ã¶ffnen lÃ¤ÃŸt. Insgesamt aber war ich mit meinem Aufenthalt im Laurentia zufrieden.
Amazing!!!!The best HOTEL in Rome I've never been. Good location since it's near the University and it's plenty restaurants with good prices. The tube is not too far (10 min walking) and the railway station is about 15 minutes. For sure I'll back to this Hotel my next time in Rome.
We booked online for three days and flew with Ryanair, then…a cheap deal. The hotel is located just 10 minutes from Termini Station. Our room was clean and tidy, breakfast was milk, coffee, jam, butter, fruit and croissants. Rome is beautiful!!! Good hotel for good money
We spend 7 nights in this hotel. We paid 55 euro a night (offer). After we've booked the hotel we saw that the prices ran up to 126 euro's a night. Thats a bit too much for this hotel by the way. The hotel is very clean, breakfast is good, service very good (we had a good laugh with Alberto, the receptionist!). The Russian or polish girls who are serving breakfast are not so friendly by the way. The area is italian and we liked it! Students, alternative people and Roman families in the bars and restaurants. No or very few tourists! Transport with bus 71 or 492 to the hart of Rome is excellent. Two restaurants we like to recomend: Osteria/Winebar/Pizzeria Sanlollo (via dei Sabelli 51)and ristorante Da Pino (real Roman cuisine!), via Tiburtina Antica 4/6). The gelateria's at via Tiburtina also nice to spend a visit!!
My wife and I had a very pleasant, comfortable stay at the Laurentia while I attended a conference. The room were simply appointed but clean; the staff were always very helpful, and the breakfasts were great
I chose this hotel on the basis of other rewiews, which seem pretty accurate. The hotel is friendly, efficient and clean, with a lot of business guests. Very handy for the university area, and easy to walk from main rail station although at night although the long streets between the hotel area (itself very animated) and the station could feel a bit deserted if you were a solo woman traveller. The hotel area is scruffy (lots of graffiti everywhere) but does not feel at all unsafe and has a good atmosphere with loads of good cheap places to eat, catering for young clientelle /students. Compared to other cities the hotel felt expensive for what you get, but this is Rome. My single room was high up on the backside with a small roof terrace. The decor was a bit drab, and some aspects felt a bit "run down" - e.g. shower door half falling off, room safe attached to a shelf which was detachable, window shutter catch not working. However it was comfortable with a good bed and very clean. For Rome it was also quiet (at least on the backside room I had), with an air con system that allows you to sleep with windows shut. No room internet connection - you have to do this in the communal lounge downstairs which is a bit inconvenient. The breakfast area is stylish and breakfast buffet was fine. The suited gentlemen at reception (which is alway staffed) were always friendly and helpful. Maybe not the best location if you are here for tourism, although I walked to the Colosseum in about 25 mins, and once you are at the main station there are easy links to the whole city. And you'll get more for your money here than in the city centr
Für unsere Zwecke lag das Hotel ideal: tagsüber gute Verkehrsanbindungen in die Innenstadt, abends in direkter Nähe diverser sehr leckerer und preiswerter Trattorien und Restaurants!
My son and I spent a week at the Laurentia in June 2003 and found it absolutely charming. It is in the real Italian district near the University and the train station so there were lots of restaurants all around us and very reasonable. The staff were extremely helpful and gave us directions every day to help us get to our destination. The bus was around the corner and took us directly to the centre of Rome. The breakfasts were great and there was a lovely lounge and bar and a computer for the guests use. Our room was clean and air conditioned and very quiet. We highly recommend this hotel which was very reasonable and a real gem. We would definately stay there again.
Sono stata ospite di qusto hotel per tre notti con mio marito e la mia bambina di un anno.Alla reception avevano dimenticato di fornirci una culla ma hanno rimediato subito, anzi si sono resi molto disponibili mattina e sera a prepararci il biberon con il latte senza farcelo mai pagare, anche la culla ci è stata fornita gratis.Le camere erano molto pulite, soprattutto il bagno anche se non era fornito di spugne ma di teli di stoffa e mancava la cuffia per la doccia.Nonostante avessimo in stanza sia la culla che il passeggino lo spazio era sufficente.Il frigo bar c'era ma non funzionava,se ne avete necessità informatevi prima.La colazione era molto buona ed abbondante ed era servita in una sala molto bella, i dolci erano proprio genuini, c'erano crostate, ciambelloni, croissant, frutta, insomma mancava solo il salato ma a noi italiani poco importa.I dintorni dell'hotel sono un pò movimentati perchè è una zona ricca di studenti, di notte c'è un pò di rumore e la mattina in terra è pieno di bottiglie di birra,ma non c'è da temere, noi giravamo tranquilli anche con la bambina ma rientravamo subito dopo cena. La zone è ricca di pub e ristoranti e c'è pure un'ottima gelateria in via tiburtina, noi abbiamo mangiato bene alla trattoria Da Armando spendendo poco oppure alla Tana Sarda.In Via Tiburtina, cioè dietro l'Hotel passano l'autobus 492 o il 71 con i quali potete raggiungere le attrazioni maggiori e più giù passa persino il tram 19 che vi porta allo zoo, se avete bambini vi consiglio di portarli.Tutto sommato siamo stati bene,Lo consiglio soprattutto ai giovani o a chi vuole rientrare presto in hotel per poi riposare e uscire a cena rimanendo in zona.
This is a really good one if you're searching for a good hotel with a good price! The hotel crew is friendly and helpful, they mostly speak English. It's actually a bit far away from everything if you're not using a car or scooter. So if you don't prefer walking and you would like to discover Rome just on foot, you should rent something in the middle of the city. The breakfast is OK, the hotel is surrounded by lots of restaurants, shops and there's even a market... so you can by whatever you need. Overall this is a really good place to stay, if you're on a trip.
Vom Termini in ca. 20 min. mit 20 kg Rollkoffer zu Fuß zu erreichen, teilweise gepflasterte Bürgersteige. Noch zur Lage angenehmes Studentenviertel, Lokale und Lebensmittel sozusagen um die Ecke. Frühstück OK Mix zwischen italienisch und kontinental - kein britisches...! Rezeption freundlich und immer zu sprechen.
had a conference at the university so it was a perfect location for that. the hotel itself is very nice...good room, great breakfast, and extremely friendly guys at the front desk who were very helpful with everything. would be nice to have wifi in all the rooms, but was still ok using it in the lobby. the area is young with lots of students and there are some great bars around.
Small hotel conveniently located in San Lorenzo, in the immediate surroundings of the main railway station and the university. Nice staff. Very good price and service.
This is our 4th stay at the Laurentia and we have nothing but praise for the way the hotel is run. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming - especially Gianni and Enzo on the reception desk. The rooms are very pleasant, airy, and clean and the air conditioning works very well in the summer (though not so good in the winter!!) It is also nice to have clean towels every day and frequent fresh sheets on the beds. The breakfast is good and adequate and it is good that ham and cheese have been added to the menu.
The hotel was hosting mostly business guests during my stay, this might have been depended on the fact that it was a Monday. The public areas are extremely attractive, service excellent and extremely kind: rooms are comfortable and nice, although standard of rooms (at least as far as the standard rooms is concerned) cannot be considered at the same level of the beautiful and cosy public areas
