“Fantastic hotel”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

This is a great hotel. Modern (in a good way), comfortable rooms with really nice bathrooms. We find Chiavenna to be a great place to stop off either on the way up to or back from Madesimo when skiing and with the hotel close to the bus and train station carring the bags and skis there was really easy. It should be mentioned that despite the proximity you aren't disturbed by these.
It has been mentioned in previous reviews that the English spoken here isnt the best and while this is true the staff are really helpful and this doesnt cause a problem. Also great for people like me who want to try using a little basic Italian.
As fantastic as the hotel was it was having dinner in the restaurant that really made the stay for us. It has the look and feel of a top quality restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and wonderful food. All at a very reasonable price.
We had an amazing stay and would definitely stay again.

Nice place to spend a holliday and very friendly and helpful staff. Very good place to stay for activities outdoor in the Dolomites mountains. Breakfast and restaurant in hotel is very good. Chiavenna is also an old and beutiful little city/village.

Chiavenna is a lovely old city and this hotel was great. The room was clean and comfortable and they found somewhere safe for us to keep our tandem. We ate from the fixed price menu of food from the local region which was excellent and they were good about changing one course because I don't eat pork. It was good value.

Visited Chiavenna and stayed at the Hotel San Lorenzo in mid-March. We used the hotel as base for our participation in ski race in St. Moritz in Switzerland. Compared to Swiss accommodation, Hotel San Lorenzo surely was competitive in price and quality. The hotel was very convenient and very clean. Maybe even a bit sterile. It would be nice with some more flowers or paintings to soften up the polished (and beautiful) granite.

The hotel staff was in general not mastering the spoken English to well, but as so often in Italy the will to try to understand and express to a great extent compensates for lack in lingual capabilities. Everybody was kind and trying to find solutions for us. As for example providing a part of the parking basement for our waxing of skis.

The restaurant offered good no-nonsense Italian food and wine. As the hotel is situated centrally in Chiavenna, it is a fine point of departures for promenades in the town’s medieval center. Enjoy zipping a coffee at the piazza (square) with a view to baroque buildings, fountains, high mountains and accompanied by the sound of lively conversation amongst the natives. Easy to combine the stay with skiing (fine destinations reached within 1 hour of transport), hiking or bicycling.

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.
