“very comfotable hotel with good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Because of bad weather (we were on a biking-holiday) we were forced to stay in Chiavenna. We couldn't have spent it better than at San Lorenzo. It's located in the city centre of a very charming, old Italian city. Rooms are modern and very clean. Staff is friendly. And the food in the restaurant was really great. Good quality for fair price.

With its strategic position on the crossroads of the Italian and Swiss Alps, the San Lorenzo provides a stylish and relaxing atmosphere that delivers in terms of location, gastronomy and design. Right in the old town centre of Chiavenna, it occupies an excellent position near the beautiful collegiate church of St. Lorenzo and is very convenient for public transport services.

The rooms are spacious, simple and stylish; comfortable as much as ergonomic and functional, and everything fresh and spotless. The restaurant offers traditional Valtellinese specialities and excellent wines from the region.

In the best tradition of hospitality, the owners make you feel welcome from the moment you enter; they are genuinely pleased to see you. We loved it; great place to stay at a great price.

The hotel is positioned just across the train and bus stations of Chiavenna. The building and its interior have been recently renovated and look good. The reception is slightly unprofessional, with some of the officials mastering no foreign languages. We stayed there attending a wedding with a not too lengthy list of visitors, still the receptionist had real difficulties to identify us on a printed piece of paper without using the computer sitting on the desk. Room was nice looking at a large commune terrace. Bathroom just AOK. Sheets are changed daily. Breakfast is OK but not more than that. Coffee is stale- american so you better ask for an espresso and not for the capuccino which is watery.

My husband and I recently spent one week's holiday in Chiavenna and had selected San Lorenzo hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean, it offered a great view on the square and mountains.
Though we had a b&b formula, we have chosen to dine at the hotel every day and lunch when we happened to be in Chiavenna as the food was excellent!
All family members and staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Very good relation quality/price.
The hotel is also very well located: beautiful surroundings, very close to train station to connect to other locations such as e.g. Como lake, bus services are provided to Switzerland, etc.. In spite of the latter, the hotel is very quiet.
We definitely wish to spend more time there!

My wife and I had an overnight stay at the hotel, we had spotted the hotel in triadvisor and was not disappointed, had good enough read that there was only one that could be English in the restaurant, but you must remember we are not in the United States or United Kingdom we are in Italy, and that's what makes it exciting and also fun to travel in other countries, to meet other fellows and see other cultures and accept the people you meet as coming from another country a one himself, why would you travel otherwise .

My husband and visited Chiavenna for a single night, and stayed at the San Lorenzo on the advice of tripadvisor.com. We were NOT disappointed! The location was great: right next to the train station, although we did not hear or see a single train. The service was nice: only one English speaker was available, but I think that speaks for the "tucked away and un-touristy" nature of the town. The room we had was HUGE by European standards, with a private bathroom, and a semi-private balcony. Many of the upper floor rooms had private balconies. The super-modern, energy-efficient interior is in cool contrast to the historic exterior.
One word of advice regarding the town: beware trying to arrange a Taxi in the evenings. We wanted to go to a highly-recommended restaurant, "La Laterne Verde" and the Taxi wanted 20 Euros for 10km one way!

This hotel was like a breath of fresh air - we arrived here from Paris after a very long day on the trains, and our hotel in Paris was barely big enough to move around in. Our room here was so large in comparison - and it was so nice! We loved this hotel and the staff. English speakers beware - only one person in the hotel speaks English - she was very kind and patient with us as we tried to navigate through the Italian language. The staff were all very friendly, and somehow we communicated just fine. The restaurant was surprisingly good - we had some of our best meals in Europe there! I know that seems odd, but really, it was quite good. The hotel proprietor was extremely friendly as well. I cannot say enough about Chiavenne itself - what a beautiful little town - Chiavenna was one of our favorite cities in Italy. It helped that we seemed to be the only Americans there, so we didn't get the "touristy" feel. So qaint and beautiful and this hotel was superb! The only negative I have to say is that the shower was uber small - just don't drop the soap and you will be fine!
