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!
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.
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
Room is comfortable, double bed is big enough and very clean. Sound isolation is good. Very friend and helpful staff, both the reception and bar tender. Breakfast is very good.
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.
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.
L'ubicazione è fantastica: la vista è sulla piazza di San Lorenzo, con il caratteristico mercato, e tutt'intorno ristoranti, bar e locali in quantità industriale. Ci sono alcune camere dotate di terrazzo. Staff formale ma professionale, colazione veramente ottima per assortimento. Un ottimo tre stelle in un quartiere che mi piace molto.
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
Location,good breakfast. convenient and reasonable bus service to city centre. Good restaurant nearby.
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
Vicino all'Università, la serata è vivace ed allegra per il gran numero di studenti. Tanti i locali vicini all'hotel. Comodo ai mezzi di trasporto. Parcheggio a pagamento e attenzione alla ZTL
Saubere, grosse Zimmer. Lage im hippen Stadtteil San Lorenzo. Gute Busverbindung in die Altstadt. Gute Restaurants, Bars und Clubs in der NÃ¤he.
This is our 4th stay at the Laurentia and we have nothing but praise for the way the hotel is run. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming - especially Gianni and Enzo on the reception desk. The rooms are very pleasant, airy, and clean and the air conditioning works very well in the summer (though not so good in the winter!!) It is also nice to have clean towels every day and frequent fresh sheets on the beds. The breakfast is good and adequate and it is good that ham and cheese have been added to the menu.
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.
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.
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.
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 FuÃweg, viele preisgÃ¼nstige Lokale, junges Publikum, da in UniversitÃ¤tsnÃ¤he. Wir wÃ¼rden wieder Laurentia wÃ¤hlen!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Excellent experience, the room was nice, huge and clean. The hotel is in the hearth of San Lorenzo, which is a very characteristic, young and dynamic quarter located near to the termini station, with a lot of restaurants, bars etc
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
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.?
Laurentia Hotel is conveniently located close to Termini railroad station with buses, restaurants and convenience stores very close. It is not grand but comfortable and welcoming. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We have stayed here 3 times now and I would certainly return again.
La habitación estaba en la 4ª planta y tenía una terraza supergrande con vistas a la iglesia que hay enfrente, muy bonita
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.
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
