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.
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 We found the hotel, aside from the first floor, to be gloomy and outdated.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.
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.
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
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.
Convenient location for the near University. Inside a interesting popular part of Rome , near a little market, which becomes more interesting on Saturday. Good breakfast (no warm dishes) in a very elegant and well furnished hall. Very kind and helpful employees
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.
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.
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.
Très bon accueil; chambre agréable et propre; quartier universitaire sympa avec de nombreux restaurants peu chers et de qualité. Bien desservi par les bus.
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.
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.
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!
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
We stay with a family in your hotel and had a good time. The breakfast with juice and different ingredients for the muesli is perfect children-breakfast. The coffee from the staff is excellent and it is nice to get cheese and ham, not only sweet food. It is a easy walking distance from the railwaystation and the restaurants round the hotel are good, with exellent relationship between price and quality.
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
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.
The hotel was really nice! I will go back there. The location is very convinient (near to the main train station). The rooms are clean and very confortable. The breakfast could be better and warmer:) Enjoy your stay in Rome!
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
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 !
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.
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.
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.
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.
La habitación estaba en la 4ª planta y tenía una terraza supergrande con vistas a la iglesia que hay enfrente, muy bonita
Consiglio questo hotel per un piacevole soggiorno a Roma. La stanza è confortevole. Ottima posizione per il divertimanto serale (per i giovani, siamo nella zona universitaria) e ristorantini tipici ma lontana dal centro.
Buen hotel. Zona recomendable para salir a cenar, tomar copas... Gente del hotel muy amable.. Siempre que vuelvo a Roma vuelvo al 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.
La camera era davvero pulitissima; mi ha sorpresa l'estrema pulizia del bagno e dei servizi, della biancheria da letto e di ogni componente dell'arredo, finanche tende. La notte Ã¨ trascorsa tranquilla, niente rumori, niente noie, nemmeno dall'esterno della struttura. Il tv in camera funzionava. Consierge disponibilissimi e staff curato, educato, gentilissimi. Registrazione lampo ed ascensore per accedere ai piani. Il buffet per la colazione davvero molto vario, dai croissant allo yogurt ai cereali.....di tutto, davvero. Saletta colazione davvero incantevole, come il disimpegno.
