Excellent small-medium hotel. Close to the university and about a 20-min walk from Termini. The area abounds in low to meduim price restaurants. We felt quite safe walking at night.
I stayed at Hotel Laurentia for 6 days and thought it was absolutely awesome! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, helped advise us on places to eat and visit, and how to get there. It is a bit set back from the city centre, but the 71 bus just around the corner takes u straight to the city centre in about 5 minutes. The tram line is just down the road, which makes it quicker and easier to get to the colloseum. The location is only a drawback if you are planning on staying out till very late, otherwise Hotel Laurentia is the place to stay! :) The rooms are very reasonable for the price, breakfast is nice, but above all the staff are incredibly welcoming and really make the stay worthwhile! :) Next time i go to rome i will definately be staying here!
Hotel in cui tornerei volentieri, ho preso una camera all’ultimo piano con terrazzo, molto elegante e ben tenuta. La veduta è sulla piazza del mercato di San Lorenzo. La camera con terrazza è abbastanza isolata e piuttosto romantica. Bella sala colazione e buona scelta sempre in stile italiano
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.
La habitación estaba en la 4ª planta y tenía una terraza supergrande con vistas a la iglesia que hay enfrente, muy bonita
Acceuil chaleureux des messieurs de la réception, hotel très propre,demandé la chambre au 4 ième étage avec terasse. Le buffet du matin simple et complet à la fois. Situation près du cartier étudiant, près de la gare et bon petit resto sympatique. Anne & Yves Salaberry-de- Valleyfield. Québec.Canada.
Ein nettes Hotel unweit des Kolloseums in dem Universitätsviertel. Die Straßen werden am Wochenende gesperrt und es tanzt der Bär
Personale gentile e disponibile; Camera pulita, silenziosa e con internet wireless dell'hotel (compreso nel prezzo); bagno pulito con doccia,bidet,asciugacapelli e finestra; colazione abbondante.
Consiglio questo hotel per un piacevole soggiorno a Roma. La stanza è confortevole. Ottima posizione per il divertimanto serale (per i giovani, siamo nella zona universitaria) e ristorantini tipici ma lontana dal centro.
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
L'accueil était particulièrement agréable, "Alberto" toujours prêt à rendre service, les chambres propres et confortables, le petit déjeuner copieux ; pour notre groupe c'était parfait.
Location - it was around 10 min walk from Termini station. The neighborhood was nice, a lot of bars and great pizzerias! Price was good. Our room was clean and big, I also liked the breakfast.
The hotel is very good, the location could be better but it is not bad because you have bus in front of the hotel and in 10 minutes you can be in downtown. I have been good in the hotel and I will repeated again if I have the ocasion.
The standard of service form the hotel is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the street outside our window was at times quite noisy. However in a busy city this has to be expected. I will definitely check price and availability the next time we visit Rome.
We had a tough time finding it and felt quite foolish once we got our bearings. If you arrive at termini you can walk ten minutes to the hotel (without luggage) by via Marsala all the way to the arches, then go into San Lorenzo which is surrounded by old walls. We were anxious about the area but found once we were inside the walls, it was quite pleasant. The hotel is directly across from the church, so it is easy to find. The reception workers, all older gentlemen, didn't speak English very well. We checked in and went to our room. We found the hotel, aside from the first floor, to be gloomy and outdated. However, the rooms were spacious compared to our previous hotel in Rome and the bathroom was a very good size. The room was extremely clean and we were given toiletries that I wouldn't have expected, like toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, etc. These were replenished daily! What I didn't like was that the toilet needed to be flushed multiple times to actually work (once it took eight tries). The walls are paper thin and we had very inconsiderate neighbors, when they were gone it was very peaceful. Finally the church bells ring every half hour very loudly from 0830 to 2130 which is annoying if you want to nap. Overall a good hotel.
Excellent service. Neighborhood looks rough, lots of graffiti but turned out to be quite pleasant. Good restaurants in vicinity. Several blocks walk to main train station, where all forms of tour buses etc. are to be found. Price seems high, but it is Rome.
Ottima posizione, ampiezza delle camere, silenzio e cortesia del personale
Albergo più che soddisfacente, pulito e confortevole. Degna di nota la colazione. Punto a sfavore il vicino campanile anche se suggestivo.
Lontano dei rumori turistici, pieno di opizione di restauranti ad intorno e lo staff è gentilissimo!
Excellent hôtel, correspondant, en gros, à un très bon deux étoiles "nouvelles normes" à la française. Chambres propres, confortables et bien équipées, communs (escaliers, salons, hall) plutôt luxueux, jolie cafétéria, belle salle de brique voûtée pour le petit-déjeuner, par ailleurs copieux et bien servi, personnel expérimenté, efficace et très courtois, quartier estudiantin et populaire, chaleureux et animé (nombreux bars et pizzerias à prix très accessibles, marché devant l'hôtel, sur la piazzeta, etc.), à 15 min à pied de Termini. A recommander, donc.
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
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.
The Hotel Laurentia has it all: exellent and quiet situation off the tourist trac, close to good local restaurants and shopping, spacious and clean rooms with exellent comfort, extremely serviceminded and friendly staff, tasteful lounge and breakfast area, guest PC for internet access - I sure will come back - my best recommendations
Nice friendly staff, good breakfast, well located for exploring the city and some lively local bars.
Mit der Laurentia haben wir (5 Freundinnen) eine sehr gute Wahl getroffen. Freundliches, englisch sprechendes Personal, saubere Zimmer, tolles FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck (incl.) in einem stilvollen FrÃ¼hstÃ¼cksraum. Die Bettdecken sind etwas dÃ¼nn und die Fernbedienung des TV fehlte. Aber wer will in Rom schon fernsehen? Die Lage des Hotels war gut - gegenÃ¼ber ist der Markt, zur nÃ¤chsten Bushaltestelle 5 Minuten FuÃŸweg, viele preisgÃ¼nstige Lokale, junges Publikum, da in UniversitÃ¤tsnÃ¤he. Wir wÃ¼rden wieder Laurentia wÃ¤hlen!
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.
Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe von Bahnhof Termini, deshalb gut zu erreichen. Zimmer sehr sauber , schoener Fruehstuecksraum. Unser zimmer hatte Blick auf die schoene Kirche und auf den Marktplatz .
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
Had a lovely stay at the beginning of our trip, even though we were given a room on the 2nd floor (european 1st floor) with a view that looked out onto the square that is very busy and loud at night (a pretty happening nite-life, bar scene of college students). But other than that the room was very spacious comfortable and peaceful, and the service warm and hospitable. We even came back to stay at the tail end of our trip 2 weeks later, and the service at the front desk was even warmer and nicer, as those at hotel Laurentia seem loyal to loyalty. The neighborhood is "cool" and cheap, good for artists, musicians, travellers on a budget etc to hang and shop and drink and dine. One thing though, I noticed some graffitti of nazi swastikas on seemingly random building walls and such -- the San Lorenzo district is home to some of that pursuasion apparently, and it's not an uncommon thing in Italy, unfortunately -- but being of Asian descent myself, I experienced no problem whatsoever during my stay. As long as you avoid messing with the biker kids up the block that congregate late at night (they keep to themselves mostly, and ride bicycles not motorbikes) then you'd be fine. The neighborhood shopowners, bartenders, restaurateurs, etc were all gracious respectful and nice to us and we are beholden to them for making our stay so enjoyable. Also, the monti et mari pizza from the pizzeria around the corner is AMAZING.
The hotel is located fairly close to the Train stations(10-15 mins walk). So it was easy for us to catch the metro and travel to different tourist places in rome.
