Das Hotel hat uns sehr gut gefallen; freundliche Bedienung, nette Zimmer, alles sehr gepflegt, sehr günstiger Preis. Die Aussicht unseres nach hinten gelegenen Zimmers war etwas trist, und das Hotel liegt ein klein wenig abseits (was aber durch die Buslinie 71 ausgeglichen wird). Sonst war alles zur vollsten Zufriedenheit.
El personal encantador. La habitaciÃ³n bastante decente, sin pegas ninguna. El desayuno bastante bien, cafe, zumos, bollerÃa, panes,embutidos,pastelerÃa,cereales,frutas,yogures...etc.
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 We found the hotel, aside from the first floor, to be gloomy and outdated.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.
Amongst the two places we stayed in Rome this probably had the best space and cleanliness. The biggest drawback of this place is that it is in a shady neighborhood and not close to any of the sights in walking range. It is better to stay in the heart of the city not just for being able to walk to the sights but also for dinner/lunch options which there are very few of in this area which is to the east of the Termini. It is not close to the Termini as it appears on the map. We found it easier to walk to Manzoni station which is less crowded and a lot cleaner. I would not recommend it for a touristy stay simply because of the location but otherwise had absolutely no complaints with the stay.
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.
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.
Well served by the number 71 bus that will take you to centre of Rome. Breakfast is sumptuous. Area is run down but does have a few good bars and restaurants nearby. Check if air conditioning is available when you book as our room did not have any but this was fine in April. Reception can arrange a limo to Ciampino for E45. I would be quite happy to stay here again.
Sarà che sono innamorato di Roma ma questo soggiorno è stato bellissimo. Sono stato con mio fratello e un amico all’hotel Laurentia, due notti il tutto per andare a trovare uno che veniva con noi alle superiori e ora si deve laureare alla Sapienza (l’Hotel è zona università). L’hotel è bellissimo, molto elegante l’interno e particolare la costruzione in mattoncini, con le arcate anche nella sala colazione. Reception ben curata, staff simpatico. Non ci sono problemi di orari, ci hanno anche abbonato un po’ di ritardo sul check out, la notte siamo tornati tardissimo, diciamo anzi che era mattina e abbiamo trovato persone sempre sorridenti e gentili al bancone. Noi avevamo una tripla: camera elegante con moquette rossa, televisione e materassi morbidi ortopedici, internet gratis e ovviamente aria condizionata a tutta perché in questi giorni a Roma faceva caldissimo, sembrava estate. Abbiamo per così dire “approfittato” della colazione, tanto era inclusa nel prezzo, facendo quello che non si dovrebbe fare negli hotel, cioè spazzolare il buffet. La colazione è stata eccellente, crostate buonissime e tutto quello che siamo riusciti a mangiare aveva un buon sapore! E’ stato un fine settimana da paura! Se torneremo sicuramente soggiorneremo di nuovo qui!
The staff were very helpfull and nice, the breakfast inspite to be a continental breakfast was one of the best that I ve taken during the trip
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
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€
No complaints! Excellent service at reception and breakfast. Location good for exploring the city, on the other hand out of the "Rip-off-price-area". Lots of good and fair priced restaurants and bars around.
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!
Buon hotel *** stelle in San Lorenzo, zona giovanil/pittoresca, vivace e vicina a Stazione Termini e Università; ottimo il rapporto qualità/prezzo considerando la città di Roma; ideale per qualche giorno turistico nella città; camere ok, ottima pulizia, buona prima colazione, personale sempre gentile e disponibile, il portiere Alberto insuperabile: romano doc simpaticissimo, disponibile e pure efficiente ! Nelle vicinanze un localino che raccomando per accoglienza famigliare, cucina tipica romana e buoni prezzi: Da Pino alla piazzetta !
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.
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!
The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had plenty of choice and was served in a beautiful room. The only downside was that there were few restaurants near the hotel, really only pizzerias. Termini is about 15mins walk away but it might not be a walk you'd take alone as you have to pass through a some lonely streets. However the hotel is situated in a quieter area (actually right beside a fruit and veg market)which doesnt get too much traffic which was a welcome change as many streets are very noisy. I would definitely stay there again
Era la prima volta che soggiornavo al Laurentia, ma d'ora in poi,ogni volta che ripasserò da Roma per soggiornarvi, contatterò prima loro per sapere se hanno stanze libre; altrettanto farò con chi ha necessità di soggiornare senza problemi.
Hotel molto confortevole ed accogliente!Risultato ottimo
I stayed in this hotel with my family for an overnight stay and was enough to understand everything about it. It'ss placed in a really nice location,"San Lorenzo",a very eventful district quite close to the city centre,as well. The staff is warm ( i really appreciated the kindness of the receptionist),the rooms are surprisingly clean (in the bathroom you could walk with bare feet ,i swear) and spacious as well. There's free wifi (you have just to enter their code on your laptop),the breakfast is included ( there's lot of stuff: pies,cakes,fruit juice,biscuits,ham...) and the price is sooo cheap: we paid around 40 euros (33 pounds) per person. There's also an excellent restaurant called "I Fratelli" just after the first side street. Definitely recommended.
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
Gutes, sauberes mittelklassehotel ohne großen luxus. gute lage etwas außerhalb vom innenstadtbereich, jedoch nicht weit vom bahnhof termini. viele gute und preiswerte restaurants in unmittelbarer nähe (einige einkaufsmöglichkeiten) würden das hotel jederzeit weiter empfehlen
Molto molto carino e ben tenuto, pulitissimo anche se non ricordo più molti dettagli visto che è passato molto tempo da quando ci ho dormito. Ricordo comunque che è stato un soggiorno piacevole e che io e il mio ragazzo siamo rimasti contenti per come è andata la nostra settimana a Roma. Consiglio l'hotel!
The staff at the Laurentia can't do enough to help you enjoy your stay. From booking taxis, to recommending local restaurants for both lunch and dinner, to translation. We paid 10 euros extra per night to stay in one of the three terrace rooms on the top floor. This gave us a large balcony with excellent views of the church square & table and chairs to enjoy a drink in the evening. Although the room was basic, it was clean & functional. The shower cubicle is a little small and the towels are more like serviettes but this wasn't a big problem. The hotel bar appears to be open 24 hours a day. Trasport links to all the attractions are fantastic, although we were there for three days and only sussed it all out properly on the last day. You can get 3 tickets for the bus and the metro. The 75-minute ticket allows you one metro journey and unlimited bus journeys for 1 Euro. the day ticket (4 Euros) and the 3-day ticket (11 euros) gives to unlimited access to all forms of public transport until midnight each day (when the night service runs). Make sure you buy a travel guide before you go with the metro and bus routes in it as this will make things a lot easier for you. Our favourite restaurant, which was a stone's throw from the hotel was Armando's, serving excellent Trattoria food, including excellent seafood, and an amazing selection of wines, prosecco and limoncello. We recommend the prosciutto and mozzarella and the seafood mixed grill. Top Tip: If you get lost in Rome, head for the Piazza Venezia as this is where all the buses go from.
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
The hotel was excellent and the staff friendly, they even booked us a taxi to take us to the airport which only cost 10 euro's each. We were really lucky as there was a festival going on in the square while we were there with entertainment every night.
The street the hotel is situated in is scruffy and absolutely full of graffiti. Yet behind many of those doors are excellent reasonably priced restaurants, -- don't be put off by the outside appearances. We stayed for nine nights and the six of us ate extremely well and didn't have one poor meal. The hotel is cheap, clean and desk staff are very helpful and friendly .. As previous reviewers have commented water pressure is poor and the temperature even worse! -- no power showers at the Laurentia ! Breakfasts are adequate. The thing to note perhaps is that there is no kitchen at the hotel -- Coffe comes from a machine and you cannot purchase food at the hotel but there are bakeries and pizzerias a few doors away from the hotel. For those on a tight budget there is a well stocked supermarket a few hundred metres away from the hotel -- turn left as you go out of the hotel walk 150 m and it's across the road. Directly opposite the hotel is a small market. which sells mainly food. The hotel is based in the University district of Rome. The area is lively and noisy and some distance from the tourist sites.If you are confident to catch public transport and push your way on to the overcrowded buses or walk to theTermini (Central trains and/bus station in Rome) which is approximately 20 minutes away then the hotel is a good cheap option. If you are not prepared to do this then choose a more centrally located hotel. Also, if you expect to use the Internet frequently then you might have to wait because there is only computer access -- but who wants to spend their time e-mailing in Rome.?
Good value for money in Roma. Location is gloomy (wrong side of Termini), but the immediate sorroundings are nice (a good restaurant and a nice bar around the corner). Nice staff. OK breakfast, rooms quite spacious for Roma.
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.
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.
