San Lorenzo Guest House
Ranked #1,845 of 3,739 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 May 2009

After a trek from termini station through graffiti covered streets and having endured the stale stench of urine on the street corners, we finally arrived at san lorenzo guest house.
The San Lorenzo guest house is clean,comfortable and modern, and somehow seemed out of place in this neighbourhood. I felt safe once inside the hotel doors!
The staff are very friendly, helpful and very approachable.
The neighbourhood is quite intimidating at night, and during the walk back to the hotel, we noticed a couple of used ?heroin syringes on the pavement!
If we were to recommend this hotel to fellow travellers, we would suggest it as a suitable hotel for young backpackers on a budget. However, purely due to the location of the hotel we would not return there.

It's a nice place in a less than beautiful location. The hotel is at least a 30 minute walk from the train station in a university area; there are no direct buses from the station to the hotel. There is a lot of graffiti on the streets in the area, and the hotel is a few doors down from the Salvation Army.

The rooms are very clean, well-equipped and spacious, and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations in the area. There are cafes and restaurants and a local street market not far away, but most things on the street itself (Apuli) are closed in the evening and it is a depressing area to walk through at night.

The price includes breakfast which is truly horrible - processed long-life sweet cakes wrapped in plastic, sweetened processed cereals, sweetened uht juices, and coffee in a thermos; you are meant to help yourself and take these things on a plastic tray back to your room to eat. There are a couple of nice cafes next door which are open in the morning and ideal for breakfast.

It's a bit of a trek to the other side of town - there is a bus near the hotel that goes to the Colosseum, but if you are planning a night out it is a grim-looking place to return to late in the evening.

The rooms offer good value for money, but the hotel isn't for everyone. Better suited to confident young travellers than people looking for romance and beauty.

Thanks for the nice words but I want to make some clarifications:
The district is 10 minutes' walk from the station and there are 2 direct buses N ° 71 and 492.
Now breakfast is served in a beautiful terrace and also the offer has been improved: fresh bread, fresh cakes, yogurt, fresh croissants, cereals, juices, jam, biscuits and more ...
Public transport with the most important sites of the city are great and the neighborhood is full of life, full of restaurants, bars and pizzerias.
The photos are not updated since the building has been totally renovated and is in excellent condition and also the breakfast was changed to the location and contents.
Regards
Thomas
