I visited the hotel with three friends for a 4 night tourist break. The hotel was charming. It has old school Italian vibes. I read a negative review about the peeling wallpaper - I think that added to its charm!

The rooms were cosy but fine for two of us sharing. The shower was small but had fantastic water pressure so no complaints there :). I thought the beds were comfy and each room had air con. They were cleaned to a high standard each day and complimentary toiletries replaced (shampoo, shower gel, soap and shower caps)

The staff couldn’t do enough for us. They answered all of our questions, served us drinks whenever, advised us on the best places to go and sorted us out with a tourist map which they marked up with all the routes / monuments etc for us. Great blokes all round.

Continental breakfast was good and only 5 euros a head. It doesn’t need booking in advance just turn up on the days of breakfast is wanted.

The neighbourhood looks a bit ropey but actually we were less than 10 minutes walk to public transport to take us to the attractions in central Rome and the Colosseum was walking distance , although transport was preferable due to the heat. A taxi generally cost between 10-15 euros into the city. The buses / trams / metro are €1.50 a ticket which lasts an hour which was great. We didn’t feel unsafe walking around San Lorenzo at all, it is mostly a student area with an inner city hippy vibe. We visited hamburgerseria burger bar which was nearby and we can highly recommend (to clarify, we did eat Italian the rest of the week ;)

Sadly the roof terrace was not open as it is undergoing work so I can’t comment on it but we did get a little look at the space and I’m sure it will be lovely when opened again.

We got a taxi to and from the hotel to the airport and paid €35 and €45. It would be relatively easy to use public transport instead though, the nearest metro is termini.

If I am lucky enough to visit Rome again I would definitely consider rebooking.

The hotel is a short walk from a bus and tram stop, a little longer walk to the under ground metro, lots of scooters around to hop on and off also. It is a lengthy walk to the main tourist attractions direct. Our room was comfortable and clean, it was quite small for the furniture and felt over crowded, there was a desk in the way of the hall to the bathroom which you hit your leg off every time you passed. The bathroom was lovely and modern, wasn’t expecting that after the reviews I’d seen from other guests and they were renovating the hotel during our stay. We tried breakfast one morning for €5’s, it wasn’t for us and there is a fridge in your room and a local supermarket a stones through away to purchase things for yourself.

I had stayed at Villa San Lorenzo for 2 days and it was a very pleasant stay... The hotel is just 2 km from the Roma Termini station and you can go around the city by tram which you may get within 500 m walking distance. The people at the reception are very cordial and friendly. I enjoyed my stay at Rome greatly.

So, just got back literally this morning from our 2 night stay at Villa San Lorenzo Maria in Rome. Well the outskirts of Rome.

We were told it was pretty central when booking but the reality was that it was a bit of a way out from the sights we wanted to visit. Everything was far from our hotel but we was happy using the excellent kind of tube service they had going on. The public transport is fantastic and without that we’d have been pretty screwed to be honest.

We got to the airport and the taxi from the airport was €40 which for a 20 minute journey I personally thought was quite steep, but, we’ve just arrived, we’re excited, let’s not dwell on it and just get on with things.

We arrived in San Graffito, I mean, SAN LORENZO. Jesus, we live in the outskirts of Manchester so are used to ‘rough’ kind of areas but this place is a proper s#it hole. Really run down, rubbish everywhere, overloaded bins, graffiti like you have never seen before, literally every wall is full of graffiti.

I have seen loads of reviews about trouble and it being scary at night but that wasn’t true. We walked around late at night and had zero problems but to be honest a lot of the surrounding areas of Rome are a bit of a dump!

Onto the hotel, it’s really traditional, you really feel like you’re in Italy when you’re there. Our room was nothing like the pictures shown when booking it through Love Holidays but you know, you get what you’re given. The hotel is dead dainty and cute but our room in particular wasn’t great, it was traditional like I said and old fashioned which is acceptable but the bed may aswell been made out of stone because that’s what it felt like sleeping on.

Staff were lovely and welcoming, breakfast was pretty basic and not much choice. Wi-Fi was great no issues at all, very fast and Upto speed. Flat screen tele decent with about 479 Italian speaking channels, pointless.

But yeah, we went to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps and of course Vatican City. All miles away from our hotel. We walked around 20 minutes to the tube station then was on 1 or 2 trains for a minimum of 15/20 minutes to each location. (They are all miles away from each other).

When you’re in the vicinity of these attractions the surrounding areas are lovely and nothing like the outskirts.

The food in the restaurants is average, I thought I’d be overwhelmed with the taste in Rome but to be honest it didn’t blow me away. Food prices are decent though not too expensive but the beer is ridiculously priced. €10/€13 a pint of Peroni for a country which produces it is pretty shocking to me.

Overall I would rate the hotel 5/10, staff were great, hotel was nice to look at but the bed was so uncomfy and the surrounding areas are like bay root.

If we went back we would stay in a different hotel and try and get closer to the centre.

The attractions we visited made it an amazing trip but the hotel and location was the only downfall!

Thanks.

This hotel really has nothing to offer. The area is awful. Full of graffiti, dog poo, broken bottles, rubbish everywhere. Filthy! When you pay city taxes for your stay then you'd expect they would clean the streets. Lots of homeless people, which is ok but its just so scruffy. 20 minute walk towards Rome. The hotel itself is of low quality. All the pictures look like a romantic hotel full of charm, when in fact they are cheap and tacky. Poor decor. The room stank of an old musty antique shop. Couldn't wait to get home and wash my clothes. The shower was good though. The breakfast was OK, you got what you paid for @ €5. The beer on offer was rubbish.
Overall I would not recommend this hotel or area. Stay central to Rome where its cleaner and easy access to the sites.

I wish I could rate my experience higher, but alas, it is a 2. I booked this hotel because they had an airport shuttle listed as an amenity. I had to take a $50 taxi ride to the hotel. Once my mother & I checked in we were surprised to see such a small, spartan room. It did not look like the photos online, but it was clean & we were tired. We had a desk & wooden chair, small double bed & a tiny bathroom. We stayed in Room 202 & it felt like a sauna. We tried turning on the air conditioning & it didn't work. The one small window would not open & a maid had to bring in a ladder to open it for us. It had been a very warm day & the room was sweltering. The window helped some, but we woke up several times during the night because of the humidity & heat. We were gone all day the next day & came back to the room even warmer than the day before. I went downstairs & spoke with the gentleman at the desk. He said that the air in our room wasn't working, but came upstairs & turned it on with a knob near the door. We closed the small window so the cool air would stay in our room. We slept great, left the next morning & came back to no air conditioning, a closed window & heat worse than ever. The gentleman at the desk told me that the air conditioning had been turned off for the season & he could not turn it on, even though it was listed as an amenity. The maid had also left a note saying that she could not get the window open. We were given a small fan that circulated the hot air, but we had no relief during the rest of our stay. It was the most miserable hotel experience I have ever had. I did get breakfast one morning & it was $5, not free as listed in the hotel description.

It doesn't matter what time of year it is, if your guests are hot or cold they should be able to adjust the temperature to be comfortable in their room. I would advise anyone who is given Room 202 to change it ASAP.

First of all,the breakfast is extra payed, and here is write that is included,and is very poor,like you are in the supermarket. Location is a bad - to the first metro station you have 20min walk in the unsafe area,dangerous in fact and very dirty. From Toilette in the room is coming very bad smell and shower is so so small.

The area is not good! We made the decision it would be better to get back while it was still light outside every night. They have 8 parking spots and if you’re driving and the free parking is important to you this is something to be aware of! The breakfast is also not free! Costs €5/person every morning and the selection is very limited! Our room was filled with bugs! We had ants everywhere! And although there was a small tv it did not work. It’s about a 15-20 minute walk to the bus station to get downtown. The bed is also very uncomfortable. The a/c the first day was barely working but after our second night seemed to be better! For the price it’s a good place to stay if you only plan on being there to sleep and aren’t bothered by the area or lots of bugs!

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were friendly and very helpful. Alex, on the desk, was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us plenty of advice and tips about siteseeing in Rome. The hotel was always clean, tidy and quiet, making it a lovely relaxing place to come back to after a busy day siteseeing in the city. Breakfast which could be added, was only 5 euros per head with ample choice. I would definitely go back. Finally...'Thank you Alex for being so helpful and friendly. You made our stay at the hotel feel very inviting, enjoyable and comfortable.'

I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. The staff is nice BUTTTT

1)Air conditioner leaked on my bed and the guy at the front desk told me there is nothing he could do, I had to sleep on a wet bed. He didnt even bother coming up in my room to see what was happening
2) The shower is extremely small, im not a big person and can barely fit
3) Everything in the room is outdated, it looked way better in pictures

I would think so as they do have a night porter you would probably need to confirm that with the hotel

It would depend on what train terminal you go into. It easy to get around in a taxi and not too expensive. They can take you to the train terminal and take you to the hotel. It is not in the tourist area, but there is a grocery store to buy water and snacks, and some Trattoria's around with good food at great prices.

It is easy to get the express train from the airport to Termini Station, from there you might want to catch a taxi, walking may not be an option for you, we travel with packs and it has taken us twenty minutes to walk to the hotel, I would not recommend at night without out knowing your way. The neighbourhood as others have told you is the university district, there are a lot of affordable restaurants and bars and good quality. The streets are rather grungy but don't be put off, it's a great area to stay in. For us the location of the hotel was not a problem, while not centrally located there is a tram a short walk away from the hotel or walk 20 minutes to Termini or Manzoni metro.

Its a nice hotel. Its clean. The location isnt the best. The staff is very nice. We had aproblem with our room, it had a smell, like sewage. When we approached them, they graviously moved us to a great room with a beautiful patio. But they seemed to know about the smell yet still gave us this room. The breakfast was good. We had some things go missing, i cant say it was this hotel, because we travelled around europe, but keep an eye on ur stuff. They have safes at the check in desk, use them for passports etc. If i was going back to rome, not sure i would stay there. Its just a little far from the attractions but it is nice and clean. Rome is quite dirty, the closer to the attractions, the cleaner it gets. Claude at the desk is great, very helpful. Street cars are close by to get to attractions but you have to walk through, not the greatest area. Enjoy. Take guided tours, worth the money.
