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.
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.
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
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.
I chose this hotel on the basis of other rewiews, which seem pretty accurate. The hotel is friendly, efficient and clean, with a lot of business guests. Very handy for the university area, and easy to walk from main rail station although at night although the long streets between the hotel area (itself very animated) and the station could feel a bit deserted if you were a solo woman traveller. The hotel area is scruffy (lots of graffiti everywhere) but does not feel at all unsafe and has a good atmosphere with loads of good cheap places to eat, catering for young clientelle /students. Compared to other cities the hotel felt expensive for what you get, but this is Rome. My single room was high up on the backside with a small roof terrace. The decor was a bit drab, and some aspects felt a bit "run down" - e.g. shower door half falling off, room safe attached to a shelf which was detachable, window shutter catch not working. However it was comfortable with a good bed and very clean. For Rome it was also quiet (at least on the backside room I had), with an air con system that allows you to sleep with windows shut. No room internet connection - you have to do this in the communal lounge downstairs which is a bit inconvenient. The breakfast area is stylish and breakfast buffet was fine. The suited gentlemen at reception (which is alway staffed) were always friendly and helpful. Maybe not the best location if you are here for tourism, although I walked to the Colosseum in about 25 mins, and once you are at the main station there are easy links to the whole city. And you'll get more for your money here than in the city centr
I liked very much kind and friendly staff of hotel, cosy breakfast area and silence of the rooms
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.
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
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.
We have stayed twice in this hotel. We liked the location in an active part of Rome with lots of restaurants around. The public areas are very nice and comfortable, breakfast is fine. We had rooms with terrace on the fourth floor with panoramic view on the morning market and St Lorenzo church. Buses 71 and 492 nearby provide direct access to historical areas. Very good price/quality ratio.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Convenient location for the near University. Inside a interesting popular part of Rome , near a little market, which becomes more interesting on Saturday. Good breakfast (no warm dishes) in a very elegant and well furnished hall. Very kind and helpful employees
The hotel is located fairly close to the Train stations(10-15 mins walk). So it was easy for us to catch the metro and travel to different tourist places in rome.
Our group of 30 - school trip consisting of high school students, teachers, parents and grandparents stayed five nights at Hotel Laurentia. As another reviewer noted the location is somewhat "gloomy" but the accessibility to Termini and nearby cafes was very nice. Our lodging consisted of a large bedroom, large bathroom and hallway with chair and coat rack - my husband, son and I were very satisfied with the accommodations.
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 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!
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.
Small hotel conveniently located in San Lorenzo, in the immediate surroundings of the main railway station and the university. Nice staff. Very good price and service.
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.
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.
