"Comfortable and friendly base for university area by TripAdvisor"

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

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.




"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




"Good place to Stay by TripAdvisor"

Staff were very friendly and helpful, speaking English well. Room was clean and large. Double bed and two single beds. Initially we were a bit daunted by location but found and had not problems. Location was close to main rail station, restaurants, etc. Breakfast was lovely.




"Once you know what you're expecting, not bad at all. by TripAdvisor"

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.




"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.




" by GuestReview"

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!

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.




"Good value for money by TripAdvisor"

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.




" by GuestReview"

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.




" by Venere"

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




" by Venere"

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 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 Venere"

Very homely,i already passed the word to some friends of mine and their are chequing it out thank you very much the service was excellent on sunday 25/03/07before leaving the hotel on the night the time change and we did not realize on the take the breakfast away because the time allready gone the staff kindly bought some food to our table and their did not complain or refuse




"Pay the Extra for a Terrace Room! by TripAdvisor"

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.




"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.




" by Venere"

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.




" by Venere"

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




" by Booking"

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




" by Booking"

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.




" Very good price/quality ratio by GuestReview"

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.




" by GuestReview"

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.




" by GuestReview"

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




"Very friendly and welcoming by TripAdvisor"
