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.
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.
Hotel staff were excellent.They were extremely helpful when helping us to get out and about with good knowledge of local buses, trains etc. The room was clean and towels changed daily.The double glazing worked well and so the room was quiet at night. We very much enjoyed our stay.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.?
I stay at the Laurentia Hotel when I come in Rome for long time and it is always cheap, comfortable and with very competence employees.
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.
Das Hotel kann man wirklich empfehlen, das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist ausgezeichnet. Lage ist nicht ganz Zentral, doch wer einigermassen gut zu Fuss ist kann ohne öffentliche Verkehrsmittel alle Highlights erreichen. Das Frühstück ist nicht übermässig vielfältig, aber im Verhältnis zum Preis durchaus akzeptabel. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
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 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.
Our group of 30 - school trip consisting of high school students, teachers, parents and grandparents stayed five nights at Hotel Laurentia. As another reviewer noted the location is somewhat "gloomy" but the accessibility to Termini and nearby cafes was very nice. Our lodging consisted of a large bedroom, large bathroom and hallway with chair and coat rack - my husband, son and I were very satisfied with the accommodations.
I had a meeting in the university "Sapienza" in rome and stayed in this hotel since it was in walking distance. The lobby already made a good impression, the receptionist was friendly and very helpful. My room was on the first floor to the back of the hotel away from the plaza. I had booked a single room but got a double room with two single beds and a large bathroom. It was clean and tidy. However, I missed a ceiling light. But apparently, this is very common in Rome. So, not such a big deal. The breakfast was reasonable, they had couple of different cereals, buns, croissants, and so on. I enjoyed it. One disadvantage was the internet. Although it was free, it had some connection problems. For me it was not clear what the reason was. However, in the lobby is pc you can use 24/7 for free. If I ever come back to Rome I will definitely stay again in this hotel.
Ottimo il personale del'hotel ottima professionalità, unico piccolo neo prima colazione un pò modesta manca il salato e la frutta ma nel complesso buono il rapporto qualità prezzo
We stayed in Laurentia Hotel for one week. It was very good to be here, because rooms were clean, and day by day it was cleaned. Breakfast was good, but i wanted that it will be not just light food, but i needed meat. Staff was excellent and perfect, because they found decision of all our problems very quick and was very polite and good in English language. I with my girlfriend had a perfect holiday week in this hotel. If we will come to Rome one more time, we will choose Laurentia hotel again.
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
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€
Nice friendly staff, good breakfast, well located for exploring the city and some lively local bars.
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.
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.
Personnel tres gentil, souriant et serviable! Tout particulierement Vicenzo a la reception. Buffet du petit dejeuner copieux, mais de qualite moyenne. Chambre spacieuse avec une terrasse et un petit frigo etait disponible. J'ai beaucoup apprecie tous les produits disponibles dans la salle de bain (charlotte pour cheveux, savon, gel douche, shampooing, kit de rasage, peigne) qui etait tres propre et spacieuse. Un peu loin du centre ville, à une dizaine de minutes de l'ISS et a 15 min a pied de la gare Termini (ou deposent la navette et le train depuis l'aeroport).
Arredato e gestito in modo piacevole; buona atmosfera; personale gentile
