Hello Bob and Judy,
Hotel delle Muse is situated in Parioli district and Hotel Laurentia is in S.Lorenzo district.
Hotel Laurentia is a good 3 stars Hotel but it is not possible to say that it is central located.
Both hotels, which I repeat are not centrally located, are the same distance from the city center.
Please find here below the suggestions that normally we give to our clients about busses.
