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.
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.
A very reasonable price for a comfortable stay. Front desk help was very good. Vincenzo was particularly helpful to me. The one shortcoming re. facilities was the unreliability of the internet service to the computer for guest use. I have had this experience in other Rome hotels also.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
I am very happy to stay in hotel Laurentia, particularly because of its location near the train station and near the University. At the same time it is located in a small street, across from a market. Next time in Rome I'll be back
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing!!!!The best HOTEL in Rome I've never been. Good location since it's near the University and it's plenty restaurants with good prices. The tube is not too far (10 min walking) and the railway station is about 15 minutes. For sure I'll back to this Hotel my next time in Rome.
Our room was clean and tidy. The shower room was not so modern but still very functional. The hotel staff was nice and friendly. The location is rather close to Termini, but definitely not 500 m (a bit over 1 km). Overal experience can be considered as Very Good.
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.
We spend 7 nights in this hotel. We paid 55 euro a night (offer). After we've booked the hotel we saw that the prices ran up to 126 euro's a night. Thats a bit too much for this hotel by the way. The hotel is very clean, breakfast is good, service very good (we had a good laugh with Alberto, the receptionist!). The Russian or polish girls who are serving breakfast are not so friendly by the way. The area is italian and we liked it! Students, alternative people and Roman families in the bars and restaurants. No or very few tourists! Transport with bus 71 or 492 to the hart of Rome is excellent. Two restaurants we like to recomend: Osteria/Winebar/Pizzeria Sanlollo (via dei Sabelli 51)and ristorante Da Pino (real Roman cuisine!), via Tiburtina Antica 4/6). The gelateria's at via Tiburtina also nice to spend a visit!!
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.
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
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.
