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.
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.
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!
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.
The Hotel Laurentia was a fabulous place to stay in Rome. Though it is a bit away from the major sites, it is very close to the main train station. The staff was very helpful. Also, the price we got was excellent for the quality of the rooms. The breakfast was wonderful also. I would definitely stay here again. There are some great restaurants and bars in the neighborhood that are filled with Italians and not tourists!!
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.
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.
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!!
We asked for a romantic room upstairs with a nice view - and alberto, the very helkpfuly and friendly manager, has given us a great room with a wonderful view on the square with the market and church and his tower - we even could see the hill and mountains! Room was very cosey - little but not too little, beds are really nice, all clean, italian styled. Breakfast room in a cave very speciall and we had good fresh made coffee there. Location is great if you like to stay in a trendy and alteritave lifely aera with great bars, restaurants, small fashion and vintage store, lots of life music and art - not the overpriced and overrated touristic zone of rome, more the real rome - but also very close to Coloseum and termini - for those who are lazy - they can catch bus 71 or 492 nearby to vatican or plaza spagna, nr. 3 to colosseum - coming from the airport fiumcino its better to go with train FR 1 to Tiburtina Station and then taking the bus outside Nr.71 directly to Porto San Lorenzo (8 minutes). Theres a great enotecca leftside from hotel with antipasti buffet and great wine and also a super pizza to go place right from the hotel as well as the small market offers fresh fruits and cheese and more! At night, theres lots of people making it a reall scenic square. But - windows closing well, so it never is too loud if you wanna sleep well - we highly recommend the hotel and his friendly staff and the aera for those who are not to stiff and looking for something real in rome. (PS: Check out the micca club through the passage in via micca pietro) a great lounge and cocktail retro club!
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.
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.
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.
The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had plenty of choice and was served in a beautiful room. The only downside was that there were few restaurants near the hotel, really only pizzerias. Termini is about 15mins walk away but it might not be a walk you'd take alone as you have to pass through a some lonely streets. However the hotel is situated in a quieter area (actually right beside a fruit and veg market)which doesnt get too much traffic which was a welcome change as many streets are very noisy. I would definitely stay there again
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.
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.
Nice tidy hotel with very helpful staff and a really good breakfast. Free Internet in lobby was great too.
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!
No complaints! Excellent service at reception and breakfast. Location good for exploring the city, on the other hand out of the "Rip-off-price-area". Lots of good and fair priced restaurants and 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent staff, very polite and helpful. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. The terrace was fantastic and very romantic. Good choice of food at buffet breakfast. Wi-fi in our room was very well. The location of the hotel is rather convenient: several small restaurants, cafes and supermarket () are nearb?. 15 minutes walk from Termini station, 10 minutes walk to subway (station Castro Pretorio). Wonderful hotel with nice personal and good service!
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.
