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 had a very pleasant stay in your hotel. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. The bathroom products provided (soaps, toothbrush, razor etc.) are a very welcome touch. I did find the light level in the room a bit low (probably because of the blinds) and the lamps could not provide sufficient light for comfortably working on my documents.
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
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.
a magnifique terrasse (peu de chambres en ont une à disposition)
Hotel confortable , limpio , tranquilo . La habitación 405 es extraordinaria . Una lástima que no se pueda tomar un café en la terraza . Estaría bien una cafetera ( o servicio de habitaciones ?) Es muy importante que se indiquen las muy especiales caracteristicas de su ubicación . Barrio de San Lorenzo : Juvenil , bullicioso y bastante lejos del centro ( aunque bien comunicado por transporte público) . Un taxi hasta el trastevere de noche puede costar más de 20€
Estamos muy contentos de haber elegido este hotel, tranquilo, con gente amable, cerca de la Universidad la Sapienza, lo que era nuestra mayor necesidad. Los empleados nos recibieron amablemente y nos facilitaron todo en nuestro idioma, lo que se agradece particularmente. En los alrededores hay locales para comer algo y pasar un buen rato, lo que recomendamos. Muchas felicidades por hacer muy bien su trabajo, ya que nos vamos contentos, agradecidos y satisfechos. Hasta pronto.
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.
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.
The hotel was excellent and the staff friendly, they even booked us a taxi to take us to the airport which only cost 10 euro's each. We were really lucky as there was a festival going on in the square while we were there with entertainment every night.
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!
We`ve been in your hotel for many, many times and we recommended it to all our friends and members of our family. The real reason to come back that often is that we feel familiar to your excellent staff, escecially to sig. Alberto,Vicenzo e Gianni: always helpful, friendly and reliable! The location however is very noisy - especially at night when students celebrate their nightlife, but that's not up to the hotel: your can choose a quiet room backside!
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.
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 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.
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.
Schnelle Reaktion bei e-mail Anfragen. Sehr ausführliche Beschreibung von Anreiseweg und Hotellage. Bewertung - sehr positiv.
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!
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...
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.
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
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.
Very nice hotel, we very much enjoyed our stay. It is particularly close to the University which we found convenient as we were attending a conference. At the same time it was an easy walk to most city sights. There were several very good restaurants within easy walking for excellent lunches and better dinners.
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.
Excelente atención y trato por parte de los empleados. El hotel esta bastante cerca de termini y de varias paradas de bus en la vía Tiburtina. Volvería sin duda.
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.
Ein nettes Hotel unweit des Kolloseums in dem Universitätsviertel. Die Straßen werden am Wochenende gesperrt und es tanzt der Bär
