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.
This is our 4th stay at the Laurentia and we have nothing but praise for the way the hotel is run. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming - especially Gianni and Enzo on the reception desk. The rooms are very pleasant, airy, and clean and the air conditioning works very well in the summer (though not so good in the winter!!) It is also nice to have clean towels every day and frequent fresh sheets on the beds. The breakfast is good and adequate and it is good that ham and cheese have been added to the menu.
Nice friendly staff, good breakfast, well located for exploring the city and some lively local bars.
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.
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.
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.
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 is very good, the location could be better but it is not bad because you have bus in front of the hotel and in 10 minutes you can be in downtown. I have been good in the hotel and I will repeated again if I have the ocasion.
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.
Excellent experience, the room was nice, huge and clean. The hotel is in the hearth of San Lorenzo, which is a very characteristic, young and dynamic quarter located near to the termini station, with a lot of restaurants, bars etc
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.
I liked very much kind and friendly staff of hotel, cosy breakfast area and silence of the rooms
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!
We booked online for three days and flew with Ryanair, then…a cheap deal. The hotel is located just 10 minutes from Termini Station. Our room was clean and tidy, breakfast was milk, coffee, jam, butter, fruit and croissants. Rome is beautiful!!! Good hotel for good money
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.
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
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
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.
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!!
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 hotel in Roman term of availability and respectively to the price/quality ratio. about 10-15 minutes walk from termini station (so if coming by train - take a taxi and don't drag your bags!). lovely frontdesk people.
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.
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!
Friendly, English speaking, helpful staff. Wonderful breakfast room, with plenty of good breakfast. We took the bus to Trevi Fountain, but it was several blocks to the bus stop. Taxis were easier. Had lunch at Armando's, a good pizza restaurant recommended near by. Good ice cream store near by, also. College atmosphere on the main street. We were there 2 days - not long enough. Had a quiet back room at Laurentia.
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!!
