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.
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!!
Nice friendly staff, good breakfast, well located for exploring the city and some lively local bars.
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.
This is what i call value for money! The room was large nice and clean, the staff was so helpful and nice and always whith a smile on their faces. They were verry helpful and sugested nice execursions. It is a bit of a walk to the interesting parts of Rome but there is a bus close to the hotel so there is no problem. I sure will go back to this hotel!! I stayed at the hotel with my 17 year old son and he liked the free internetaccess!
We've got 2 nice rooms on the 3rd floor (306, 307) which were really nice and clean. 306 a little bit smaller with the toilet a bit too closed to the sink. There is a little market every morning that could be a bit noisy in the morning but from the third floor it was perfectly fine and we could not hear it. Staff is really nice and very helpfull. I have to thank in particular Alberto that made every morning of our stay a real joy. Thank to you Alberto. Surroundings seemed a bit rough cos there were graffiti everywhere but it was actually fine with some nice restaurant around. Nearest tube station is Vittorio Emanuele, 10 min walk. Buses 2 min down the road. Termini train station 15 min walk or 5 min by bus. 25 min walk to the Colosseum. We really enjoyed our 3 days in Rome and we will definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family.
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.
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
Amazing!!!!The best HOTEL in Rome I've never been. Good location since it's near the University and it's plenty restaurants with good prices. The tube is not too far (10 min walking) and the railway station is about 15 minutes. For sure I'll back to this Hotel my next time in Rome.
I had a meeting in the university "Sapienza" in rome and stayed in this hotel since it was in walking distance. The lobby already made a good impression, the receptionist was friendly and very helpful. My room was on the first floor to the back of the hotel away from the plaza. I had booked a single room but got a double room with two single beds and a large bathroom. It was clean and tidy. However, I missed a ceiling light. But apparently, this is very common in Rome. So, not such a big deal. The breakfast was reasonable, they had couple of different cereals, buns, croissants, and so on. I enjoyed it. One disadvantage was the internet. Although it was free, it had some connection problems. For me it was not clear what the reason was. However, in the lobby is pc you can use 24/7 for free. If I ever come back to Rome I will definitely stay again in this hotel.
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.
Hotel was clean, modern with friendly and helpful staff. Not as near Termini as I thought but worked to our advantage, Being a 10 to 15 min walk away from Termini, it was quiet at night with a good range of places to eat.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
Good location in Rome: beautiful, romantic city. Hotel located near Termini Station. Very clean and very polite staff.
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.
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.
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.
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.
