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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Ottima posizione, ampiezza delle camere, silenzio e cortesia del personale
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
Très bon accueil; chambre agréable et propre; quartier universitaire sympa avec de nombreux restaurants peu chers et de qualité. Bien desservi par les bus.
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!
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!
This is what i call value for money! The room was large nice and clean, the staff was so helpful and nice and always whith a smile on their faces. They were verry helpful and sugested nice execursions. It is a bit of a walk to the interesting parts of Rome but there is a bus close to the hotel so there is no problem. I sure will go back to this hotel!! I stayed at the hotel with my 17 year old son and he liked the free internetaccess!
Location,good breakfast. convenient and reasonable bus service to city centre. Good restaurant nearby.
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.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, speaking English well. Room was clean and large. Double bed and two single beds. Initially we were a bit daunted by location but found and had not problems. Location was close to main rail station, restaurants, etc. Breakfast was lovely.
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!
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
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.
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.
La habitación estaba en la 4ª planta y tenía una terraza supergrande con vistas a la iglesia que hay enfrente, muy bonita
The Hotel Laurentia was a fabulous place to stay in Rome. Though it is a bit away from the major sites, it is very close to the main train station. The staff was very helpful. Also, the price we got was excellent for the quality of the rooms. The breakfast was wonderful also. I would definitely stay here again. There are some great restaurants and bars in the neighborhood that are filled with Italians and not tourists!!
Ottima posizione, camere pulite e silenziose, colazione con poca varietà, ma tutto buono. Lo consiglierei a chiunque voglia andare a roma
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
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.
Hotel in zona San Lorenzo di buon livello, ottimo per pulizia e molto bella la sala colazione, sotto archi di pietra. La posizione è comoda per chi ha bisogno di muoversi velocemente nella zona dell’università, dove per forza di cose la rete dei trasporti è ottima (anche se gli autobus spesso sono pieni zeppi). Camera molto spaziosa, bel bagno con mattonelle verdi, bellissima vista sulla piazza del mercato di San Lorenzo. Terrazzo larghissimo e parquet in legno (ovviamente la mia camera non era una camera standard ma una delle camere all’ultimo piano, con terrazza). Buono, per me consigliabile anche come hotel romantico.
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.
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.
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
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.
We've got 2 nice rooms on the 3rd floor (306, 307) which were really nice and clean. 306 a little bit smaller with the toilet a bit too closed to the sink. There is a little market every morning that could be a bit noisy in the morning but from the third floor it was perfectly fine and we could not hear it. Staff is really nice and very helpfull. I have to thank in particular Alberto that made every morning of our stay a real joy. Thank to you Alberto. Surroundings seemed a bit rough cos there were graffiti everywhere but it was actually fine with some nice restaurant around. Nearest tube station is Vittorio Emanuele, 10 min walk. Buses 2 min down the road. Termini train station 15 min walk or 5 min by bus. 25 min walk to the Colosseum. We really enjoyed our 3 days in Rome and we will definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family.
In my frequent visits to Rome , I have stayed at this small hotel quite few time. The hotel is conveniently located in San Lorenzo very easy to reach from the rail stations either Termini Station or Tiburtina Station never more than 7€ Euro of a taxi ride. It is great if you have to attend or you have some business at local La Sapienza University ( like in my case) 5 min. walk. Rooms tough a bit dated are clean and comfortable. Free wi-fi connection everywhere. Great continental breakfast. At night many good options for local dining from very simple pizza places to restaurants and pubs where to grab a drink . For those who like to visit town tough not right in the city center it is very easy to reach main sites by bus number 492 and 71 ...just from the main road behind the hotel. The reception staff is very professional and accommodating I had to shorten my stay in two different occasion and they never charged me a penalty for doing so. They help ed me with taxi arrangements and left luggages. Rates if you book well in advance are really great for a town like Rome. Definitely a place to stay in the Eternal City.
