Nice tidy hotel with very helpful staff and a really good breakfast. Free Internet in lobby was great too.
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 We found the hotel, aside from the first floor, to be gloomy and outdated.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.
Es waren tolle Tage in diesem Hotel in Rom. Das Hotel liegt zu Fuß ca. 15 min. vom Bahnhof Termini entfernt. Es gibt gleich in der Nähe eine Bushaltestelle; mit der Busnr. 71 kommt man am Besten in die Stadt. Es gibt auch noch eine andere Busverbindung Nr. 496 (bin mir der Nummer nicht mehr hundert Prozent sicher), die direkt zum Vatikan führt. Das Hotel ist ideal für jüngere, da es sich in der Studentenzone befindet. Gleich in der Nähe findet man zahlreiche Bars. Günstig und super essen kann man gleich in der Nähe. Den Namen des Restaurants weiss ich nicht mehr genau, aber es liegt vor einer Stadtmauer auf der rechten Seite und ist eine Art Trattoria/Pizzeria.
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!
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!
I liked very much kind and friendly staff of hotel, cosy breakfast area and silence of the rooms
Coppia viaggiatori buona la qualità dell'hotel, il personale si é dimostrato competente e molto simpatico nel fornire informazioni sulla città sui mezzi pubblici e ristoranti. nel complesso la nostra valutazione è molto positiva, unica pecca è la location un pò fuori dai normali percorsi turistici
Excelente atención y trato por parte de los empleados. El hotel esta bastante cerca de termini y de varias paradas de bus en la vía Tiburtina. Volvería sin duda.
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.
Buen hotel. Zona recomendable para salir a cenar, tomar copas... Gente del hotel muy amable.. Siempre que vuelvo a Roma vuelvo al hotel.
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.
Albergo più che soddisfacente, pulito e confortevole. Degna di nota la colazione. Punto a sfavore il vicino campanile anche se suggestivo.
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.
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
We`ve been in your hotel for many, many times and we recommended it to all our friends and members of our family. The real reason to come back that often is that we feel familiar to your excellent staff, escecially to sig. Alberto,Vicenzo e Gianni: always helpful, friendly and reliable! The location however is very noisy - especially at night when students celebrate their nightlife, but that's not up to the hotel: your can choose a quiet room backside!
Very welcoming service, and since this hotel was picked very quickly as part of a last-minute trip to Rome, it was a very good pick. Lovely included breakfast and computer with internet access. It is very close to the Termini, so I would definitely suggest taking taxi transport from your activities in town at night back to the hotel. It didn't seem worth risking a late-night walk back to save money. During the day, though, it's fine.
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.
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
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.?
We have stayed twice in this hotel. We liked the location in an active part of Rome with lots of restaurants around. The public areas are very nice and comfortable, breakfast is fine. We had rooms with terrace on the fourth floor with panoramic view on the morning market and St Lorenzo church. Buses 71 and 492 nearby provide direct access to historical areas. Very good price/quality ratio.
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¶Ãe absolut minimal. Die TÃ¼r der darin befindlichen Mini- bar lÃ¤Ãt 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¤Ãt. Insgesamt aber war ich mit meinem Aufenthalt im Laurentia zufrieden.
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
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
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
Per la mia laurea ho dovuto invitare tanti amici e parenti e ero sotto stress per organizzare tutto ma invece è tutto filato per il meglio, davvero per il meglio! La laurea è sul capo e tutti i presenti a Roma sono stati benissimo in hotel gradendo perfino San Lorenzo, quartiere fatto per i giovani... Si mangia bene ovunque. L'hotel ha risposto ad ogni esigenza e a accontentare i miei ce ne vuole.... Quasi quasi torno in vacanza in hotel quanto prima e se non prestissimo già è fissato un appuntamento a cadenza annuale giusto per riesumare il bel tempo passato a Roma. Ormai i portieri mi riconoscono e mi sento a casa, nella mia casa romana, sempre linda e disponibile per i miei riitorni. Voto: dieci! Anzi 30 e lode!
Ottima posizione, ampiezza delle camere, silenzio e cortesia del personale
La habitación estaba en la 4ª planta y tenía una terraza supergrande con vistas a la iglesia que hay enfrente, muy bonita
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.
Saubere, grosse Zimmer. Lage im hippen Stadtteil San Lorenzo. Gute Busverbindung in die Altstadt. Gute Restaurants, Bars und Clubs in der NÃ¤he.
Non è la prima volta nel Laurentia. Per questo ritorno, quando in Roma. Tutti sono gentilissimo e svelto quando ci necessita di qualsiasi cosa. Da non dire niente contro. Direbe che è la mia casa a Roma. Me sento molto bene li. Ritornero sempre e dirò ai amici per restare nel Laurentia
