Hotel staff were excellent.They were extremely helpful when helping us to get out and about with good knowledge of local buses, trains etc. The room was clean and towels changed daily.The double glazing worked well and so the room was quiet at night. We very much enjoyed our stay.

"A cheap hotel perfect for the right travellers by TripAdvisor"

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.?

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.




"Excelente atención y trato por... by TripAdvisor"

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.




"Very comfortable, clean property with pleasant staff by TripAdvisor"

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.

"Excellen hotel to stay in Rome by TripAdvisor"

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.




"excellent choice by TripAdvisor"

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.




"Convenient location by GuestReview"

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




" by GuestReview"

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.

"Great Place - Good location by TripAdvisor"

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.




"The hotel was excellent by GuestReview"

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.




" by Booking"

Nice tidy hotel with very helpful staff and a really good breakfast. Free Internet in lobby was great too.




"Pleasantly surprised by TripAdvisor"

We had a tough time finding it and felt quite foolish once we got our bearings. If you arrive at termini you can walk ten minutes to the hotel (without luggage) by via Marsala all the way to the arches, then go into San Lorenzo which is surrounded by old walls. We were anxious about the area but found once we were inside the walls, it was quite pleasant. The hotel is directly across from the church, so it is easy to find. The reception workers, all older gentlemen, didn't speak English very well. We checked in and went to our room. We found the hotel, aside from the first floor, to be gloomy and outdated. However, the rooms were spacious compared to our previous hotel in Rome and the bathroom was a very good size. The room was extremely clean and we were given toiletries that I wouldn't have expected, like toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, etc. These were replenished daily! What I didn't like was that the toilet needed to be flushed multiple times to actually work (once it took eight tries). The walls are paper thin and we had very inconsiderate neighbors, when they were gone it was very peaceful. Finally the church bells ring every half hour very loudly from 0830 to 2130 which is annoying if you want to nap. Overall a good hotel.

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!




"A great place to stay in Rome! by TripAdvisor"

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!!




" by Booking"

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!




" by GuestReview"

We stay with a family in your hotel and had a good time. The breakfast with juice and different ingredients for the muesli is perfect children-breakfast. The coffee from the staff is excellent and it is nice to get cheese and ham, not only sweet food. It is a easy walking distance from the railwaystation and the restaurants round the hotel are good, with exellent relationship between price and quality.




"Very nice hotel by GuestReview"

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 hotel, good service, realy italian non touristic neighbourhood by TripAdvisor"

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!!
