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.
Sono stata ospite di qusto hotel per tre notti con mio marito e la mia bambina di un anno.Alla reception avevano dimenticato di fornirci una culla ma hanno rimediato subito, anzi si sono resi molto disponibili mattina e sera a prepararci il biberon con il latte senza farcelo mai pagare, anche la culla ci è stata fornita gratis.Le camere erano molto pulite, soprattutto il bagno anche se non era fornito di spugne ma di teli di stoffa e mancava la cuffia per la doccia.Nonostante avessimo in stanza sia la culla che il passeggino lo spazio era sufficente.Il frigo bar c'era ma non funzionava,se ne avete necessità informatevi prima.La colazione era molto buona ed abbondante ed era servita in una sala molto bella, i dolci erano proprio genuini, c'erano crostate, ciambelloni, croissant, frutta, insomma mancava solo il salato ma a noi italiani poco importa.I dintorni dell'hotel sono un pò movimentati perchè è una zona ricca di studenti, di notte c'è un pò di rumore e la mattina in terra è pieno di bottiglie di birra,ma non c'è da temere, noi giravamo tranquilli anche con la bambina ma rientravamo subito dopo cena. La zone è ricca di pub e ristoranti e c'è pure un'ottima gelateria in via tiburtina, noi abbiamo mangiato bene alla trattoria Da Armando spendendo poco oppure alla Tana Sarda.In Via Tiburtina, cioè dietro l'Hotel passano l'autobus 492 o il 71 con i quali potete raggiungere le attrazioni maggiori e più giù passa persino il tram 19 che vi porta allo zoo, se avete bambini vi consiglio di portarli.Tutto sommato siamo stati bene,Lo consiglio soprattutto ai giovani o a chi vuole rientrare presto in hotel per poi riposare e uscire a cena rimanendo in zona.
Saubere, grosse Zimmer. Lage im hippen Stadtteil San Lorenzo. Gute Busverbindung in die Altstadt. Gute Restaurants, Bars und Clubs in der NÃ¤he.
Vom Termini in ca. 20 min. mit 20 kg Rollkoffer zu Fuß zu erreichen, teilweise gepflasterte Bürgersteige. Noch zur Lage angenehmes Studentenviertel, Lokale und Lebensmittel sozusagen um die Ecke. Frühstück OK Mix zwischen italienisch und kontinental - kein britisches...! Rezeption freundlich und immer zu sprechen.
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.
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.
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.
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)
In my frequent visits to Rome , I have stayed at this small hotel quite few time. The hotel is conveniently located in San Lorenzo very easy to reach from the rail stations either Termini Station or Tiburtina Station never more than 7€ Euro of a taxi ride. It is great if you have to attend or you have some business at local La Sapienza University ( like in my case) 5 min. walk. Rooms tough a bit dated are clean and comfortable. Free wi-fi connection everywhere. Great continental breakfast. At night many good options for local dining from very simple pizza places to restaurants and pubs where to grab a drink . For those who like to visit town tough not right in the city center it is very easy to reach main sites by bus number 492 and 71 ...just from the main road behind the hotel. The reception staff is very professional and accommodating I had to shorten my stay in two different occasion and they never charged me a penalty for doing so. They help ed me with taxi arrangements and left luggages. Rates if you book well in advance are really great for a town like Rome. Definitely a place to stay in the Eternal City.
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.
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!
El personal encantador. La habitaciÃ³n bastante decente, sin pegas ninguna. El desayuno bastante bien, cafe, zumos, bollerÃa, panes,embutidos,pastelerÃa,cereales,frutas,yogures...etc.
The hotel was hosting mostly business guests during my stay, this might have been depended on the fact that it was a Monday. The public areas are extremely attractive, service excellent and extremely kind: rooms are comfortable and nice, although standard of rooms (at least as far as the standard rooms is concerned) cannot be considered at the same level of the beautiful and cosy public areas
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!!
It was nice to stay in this hotel . We really had great time. The staff was very welcoming and rooms were very clean. It was upto our expectations.
Location,good breakfast. convenient and reasonable bus service to city centre. Good restaurant nearby.
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.
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.
Une bonne prestation par rapport au prix proposÃ©.Pas de parking ce qui oblige Ã mettre la voiture dans un park privÃ© soit un surcoÃ»t de 16 euros par jour.Un cafÃ© bien mÃ©diocre pour l'italie
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.
La nostra camera è accogliente e vi si può ben riposare anche di notte non essendo affacciata sulla via principale. L'albergo é ben servito dai mezzi pubblici che consentono facilmente l'accesso alle zone di maggior interesse turistico. Nell'insieme un ottimo soggiorno
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
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.
Hotel in zona San Lorenzo di buon livello, ottimo per pulizia e molto bella la sala colazione, sotto archi di pietra. La posizione è comoda per chi ha bisogno di muoversi velocemente nella zona dell’università, dove per forza di cose la rete dei trasporti è ottima (anche se gli autobus spesso sono pieni zeppi). Camera molto spaziosa, bel bagno con mattonelle verdi, bellissima vista sulla piazza del mercato di San Lorenzo. Terrazzo larghissimo e parquet in legno (ovviamente la mia camera non era una camera standard ma una delle camere all’ultimo piano, con terrazza). Buono, per me consigliabile anche come hotel romantico.
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
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.
a magnifique terrasse (peu de chambres en ont une à disposition)
Personnel tres gentil, souriant et serviable! Tout particulierement Vicenzo a la reception. Buffet du petit dejeuner copieux, mais de qualite moyenne. Chambre spacieuse avec une terrasse et un petit frigo etait disponible. J'ai beaucoup apprecie tous les produits disponibles dans la salle de bain (charlotte pour cheveux, savon, gel douche, shampooing, kit de rasage, peigne) qui etait tres propre et spacieuse. Un peu loin du centre ville, à une dizaine de minutes de l'ISS et a 15 min a pied de la gare Termini (ou deposent la navette et le train depuis l'aeroport).
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!!
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.?
