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.
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
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.
Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe von Bahnhof Termini, deshalb gut zu erreichen. Zimmer sehr sauber , schoener Fruehstuecksraum. Unser zimmer hatte Blick auf die schoene Kirche und auf den Marktplatz .
Buen hotel. Zona recomendable para salir a cenar, tomar copas... Gente del hotel muy amable.. Siempre que vuelvo a Roma vuelvo al hotel.
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.
Excellent hôtel, correspondant, en gros, à un très bon deux étoiles "nouvelles normes" à la française. Chambres propres, confortables et bien équipées, communs (escaliers, salons, hall) plutôt luxueux, jolie cafétéria, belle salle de brique voûtée pour le petit-déjeuner, par ailleurs copieux et bien servi, personnel expérimenté, efficace et très courtois, quartier estudiantin et populaire, chaleureux et animé (nombreux bars et pizzerias à prix très accessibles, marché devant l'hôtel, sur la piazzeta, etc.), à 15 min à pied de Termini. A recommander, donc.
Posizione centrale e facilmente raggiungibile dalla stazione in quartiere studentesco abbastanza animato. Cortesia del personale. Buon rapporto qualitÃ /prezzo.
I stayed in this hotel with my family for an overnight stay and was enough to understand everything about it. It'ss placed in a really nice location,"San Lorenzo",a very eventful district quite close to the city centre,as well. The staff is warm ( i really appreciated the kindness of the receptionist),the rooms are surprisingly clean (in the bathroom you could walk with bare feet ,i swear) and spacious as well. There's free wifi (you have just to enter their code on your laptop),the breakfast is included ( there's lot of stuff: pies,cakes,fruit juice,biscuits,ham...) and the price is sooo cheap: we paid around 40 euros (33 pounds) per person. There's also an excellent restaurant called "I Fratelli" just after the first side street. Definitely recommended.
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.
This is a really good one if you're searching for a good hotel with a good price! The hotel crew is friendly and helpful, they mostly speak English. It's actually a bit far away from everything if you're not using a car or scooter. So if you don't prefer walking and you would like to discover Rome just on foot, you should rent something in the middle of the city. The breakfast is OK, the hotel is surrounded by lots of restaurants, shops and there's even a market... so you can by whatever you need. Overall this is a really good place to stay, if you're on a trip.
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.
Very welcoming service, and since this hotel was picked very quickly as part of a last-minute trip to Rome, it was a very good pick. Lovely included breakfast and computer with internet access. It is very close to the Termini, so I would definitely suggest taking taxi transport from your activities in town at night back to the hotel. It didn't seem worth risking a late-night walk back to save money. During the day, though, it's fine.
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.
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.
a magnifique terrasse (peu de chambres en ont une à disposition)
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.
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
Zimmer - Boden nicht sehr sauber, Sauberkeit Rest i.O. Frühstücksbuffet nicht jeden Tag volständig (1 x keine Butter, 1 x kein normales Brot, nur süss)
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!!!
Hotel in cui tornerei volentieri, ho preso una camera all’ultimo piano con terrazzo, molto elegante e ben tenuta. La veduta è sulla piazza del mercato di San Lorenzo. La camera con terrazza è abbastanza isolata e piuttosto romantica. Bella sala colazione e buona scelta sempre in stile italiano
Molto molto carino e ben tenuto, pulitissimo anche se non ricordo più molti dettagli visto che è passato molto tempo da quando ci ho dormito. Ricordo comunque che è stato un soggiorno piacevole e che io e il mio ragazzo siamo rimasti contenti per come è andata la nostra settimana a Roma. Consiglio l'hotel!
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.
1 Es un hotel correcto para sus 3estrellas. Limpio, ordenado, desayuno bueno con los alimentos bÃ¡sicos para empezar bien el dia, personal del hotel muy atento y la habitaciÃ³n que nos dieron era excelente, amplia con cama grande y salida a una terrzaza, baÃ±o con ducha. Recomendaria este hotel sin duda, aunque estÃ¡ un poco alejado del centro de Roma.
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.
