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.
je ne serais pas venu dans ce quartier de Rome a priori non touristique J'y suis venu à cause d'un colloque universitaire c'est un quartier très sympa, mais cependant calme on y mange très bien et pas cher je reviendrai
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.
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!
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
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!
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.?
I chose this hotel on the basis of other rewiews, which seem pretty accurate. The hotel is friendly, efficient and clean, with a lot of business guests. Very handy for the university area, and easy to walk from main rail station although at night although the long streets between the hotel area (itself very animated) and the station could feel a bit deserted if you were a solo woman traveller. The hotel area is scruffy (lots of graffiti everywhere) but does not feel at all unsafe and has a good atmosphere with loads of good cheap places to eat, catering for young clientelle /students. Compared to other cities the hotel felt expensive for what you get, but this is Rome. My single room was high up on the backside with a small roof terrace. The decor was a bit drab, and some aspects felt a bit "run down" - e.g. shower door half falling off, room safe attached to a shelf which was detachable, window shutter catch not working. However it was comfortable with a good bed and very clean. For Rome it was also quiet (at least on the backside room I had), with an air con system that allows you to sleep with windows shut. No room internet connection - you have to do this in the communal lounge downstairs which is a bit inconvenient. The breakfast area is stylish and breakfast buffet was fine. The suited gentlemen at reception (which is alway staffed) were always friendly and helpful. Maybe not the best location if you are here for tourism, although I walked to the Colosseum in about 25 mins, and once you are at the main station there are easy links to the whole city. And you'll get more for your money here than in the city centr
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Camera accogliente e arredata esattamente come in foto, stanza e bagno (un po' piccolo) ben puliti. La zona intorno all'hotel può sembrare poco raccomandabile ma la sera è piena di locali, trattorie e ristoranti. Eccellente colazione (caffe, latte caldo e freddo, pane, burro, marmellate, cereali, frutta secca, crostate, croissant e altro ancora!)
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.
El personal encantador. La habitaciÃ³n bastante decente, sin pegas ninguna. El desayuno bastante bien, cafe, zumos, bollerÃa, panes,embutidos,pastelerÃa,cereales,frutas,yogures...etc.
Era la prima volta che soggiornavo al Laurentia, ma d'ora in poi,ogni volta che ripasserò da Roma per soggiornarvi, contatterò prima loro per sapere se hanno stanze libre; altrettanto farò con chi ha necessità di soggiornare senza problemi.
I liked very much kind and friendly staff of hotel, cosy breakfast area and silence of the rooms
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 !
Lontano dei rumori turistici, pieno di opizione di restauranti ad intorno e lo staff è gentilissimo!
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
Con questa è la seconda volta che prenoto l'hotel laurentia. mi son trovato abbastanza bene, hotel tranquillo, buona colazione, buona base di partenza per visitare roma, a cento metri dall'hotel passa l'autobus 71 che ti permette di raggiungere facilmente la metro ed il centrissimo di roma, fontana di trevi, piazza navona ecc...
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.
