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.
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!
L'accueil était particulièrement agréable, "Alberto" toujours prêt à rendre service, les chambres propres et confortables, le petit déjeuner copieux ; pour notre groupe c'était parfait.
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.
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.
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.
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!
had a conference at the university so it was a perfect location for that. the hotel itself is very nice...good room, great breakfast, and extremely friendly guys at the front desk who were very helpful with everything. would be nice to have wifi in all the rooms, but was still ok using it in the lobby. the area is young with lots of students and there are some great bars around.
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
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.
Location,good breakfast. convenient and reasonable bus service to city centre. Good restaurant nearby.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.?
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
Arredato e gestito in modo piacevole; buona atmosfera; personale gentile
Personale gentilissimo ,stanza accogliente,un poco piccola la doccia ma nel complesso soggiorno soddisfacente.alla sinistar dell'uscita una pizzeria a taglio con prodotti ottimi.il portiere ci ha consigliato un ristorante sulla piazza dove abbiamo mangiato ottima cucina romana ad un ottimo rapporto qualitÃ -prezzo senza considerare la cordialitÃ del personale.UN SOGGIORNO VERAMENTE APPAGANTE!!!
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¶ÃŸe absolut minimal. Die TÃ¼r der darin befindlichen Mini- bar lÃ¤ÃŸt 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¤ÃŸt. Insgesamt aber war ich mit meinem Aufenthalt im Laurentia zufrieden.
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.
Sarà che sono innamorato di Roma ma questo soggiorno è stato bellissimo. Sono stato con mio fratello e un amico all’hotel Laurentia, due notti il tutto per andare a trovare uno che veniva con noi alle superiori e ora si deve laureare alla Sapienza (l’Hotel è zona università). L’hotel è bellissimo, molto elegante l’interno e particolare la costruzione in mattoncini, con le arcate anche nella sala colazione. Reception ben curata, staff simpatico. Non ci sono problemi di orari, ci hanno anche abbonato un po’ di ritardo sul check out, la notte siamo tornati tardissimo, diciamo anzi che era mattina e abbiamo trovato persone sempre sorridenti e gentili al bancone. Noi avevamo una tripla: camera elegante con moquette rossa, televisione e materassi morbidi ortopedici, internet gratis e ovviamente aria condizionata a tutta perché in questi giorni a Roma faceva caldissimo, sembrava estate. Abbiamo per così dire “approfittato” della colazione, tanto era inclusa nel prezzo, facendo quello che non si dovrebbe fare negli hotel, cioè spazzolare il buffet. La colazione è stata eccellente, crostate buonissime e tutto quello che siamo riusciti a mangiare aveva un buon sapore! E’ stato un fine settimana da paura! Se torneremo sicuramente soggiorneremo di nuovo qui!
f the nine hotels we stayed in during previous travels to Italy, our ten-day stay [May, 2006] at Hotel Laurentia was our favorite. Our room [#203] had a comfortable full size queen bed â€“ not two twins pushed together. The bathroom shower was enclosed [be it small] with daily hot water. The air conditioner worked as well as the small refrigerator [once you pluged it in]. The room overlooked the open market and church. Yes, it was noisy outside late into the night, but that was corrected once the window was closed. Indeed, there was a lot of graffiti and posters on the buildings giving the area a rough appearance. But the neighborhood was safe, close to excellent gelato stands and restaurants free of annoying tourists. It was also close to bus transportation or a 20-minute walk to the bus terminal located at Romeâ€™s main train station. Taxi service was easily available. The meter rate begins at the point of departure for the taxi, not from the hotel. But not to worry, average speed to the airport is 110 mpr. The breakfast buffet was outstanding with multiple selections of grains, cereals, fruits, juice, pastries, yogart and, upon request, excellent cappuccino. All of this served in a comfortable dining area. The staff was attentive, efficient, and responsive to requests. Of special recognition is the detailed connoisseur service provided by Alberto at the front desk. He is outstanding â€“ speaking several languages.
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!
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.
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
Lontano dei rumori turistici, pieno di opizione di restauranti ad intorno e lo staff è gentilissimo!
Arredamento delle camere un po' spartano, asciugamani del bagno un po' sottili. Non proprio vicini i collegamenti per il centro e dintorni in direzione della stazione mal frequentati, soprattutto nelle ore serali. Per il resto tutto ok. Personale gentile e disponibile. Buona colazione in bellissima sala. In generale consigliato!
The staff were very helpfull and nice, the breakfast inspite to be a continental breakfast was one of the best that I ve taken during the trip
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.
