Fantastic Stay”

Fantastic hotel located central Rome, only a few minutes walk from Termini station. We found the area to be pretty safe and close to everything we needed. Hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful. We even got a free room upgrade, and the room was MASSIVE and very clean. The free breakfast was very good, situated on the top floor, with an outdoor area that had fantastic views across the city. Just note, there is a single elevator and it is quite narrow. I don't normally write hotel reviews, however I was really impressed by the Independent Hotel, and would easily stay here again next time I'm in Rome.

We were extremely pleased with Hotel Independent. We loved our comfortable balcony room. ”

The staff was very professional and eager to assist in making dinner reservations for us, providing directions and setting up transportation to airport. The breakfast on the roof was delicious with a bigger selection than expected. The room was well decorated and very comfortable; the only thing lacking was small wash cloths, but towels were thick and high quality. We paid extra for a balcony and have no regrets in that choice. The location is directly across from Termini station, the central train and metro station in Rome so arriving on the train could not have been easier. You cannot go wrong with Hotel Independent.

Great hotel, friendly staff, convenient location”

This was my first time using agoda, and I'm extremely satisfied. The hotel looked exactly like the pictures, and I found other reviews to be true to my experience. All the hotel staff was extremely helpful and thoughtful. I visited other cities during my trip to Italy, so I had two reservations for this hotel in Rome. When returning for my second reservation, the hotel left me a complimentary bottle of wine along with a thank you note for returning. They also left us a small treat for my birthday. As with any major city, the areas surrounding major train stations may not always be the most appealing location. However, the proximity to Termini station was extremely convenient (two minute walk), and there was also a taxi area very close by (when calling a taxi, the driver would arrive within 2min. I would definitely stay here again when in Rome.

We were returning from a Mediterranean cruise and spent three days in Rome before returning to the United States. We stayed at The Independent Hotel which was definitely the right choice. The hotel was perfect, our room was upgraded to a suite, location was central to everything tour buses, trains, metro, and local buses. The personnel from the time we checked in gave us directions and recommended restaurants and tours. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning on staying in Rome.

Convenient, efficient, value for money.”

Arriving for a short stay in Rome, we found The Independent to be an excellent choice, marked by its convenient location within 300 metres of the Termini exit, the helpfulness of the staff, and the overall efficiency of its operation. We were able to check in quickly and were in our upgraded room within 15 minutes. The rooftop bar / breakfast set up was pleasant with reasonable views. The room was spotless; housekeeping was seamless and there was a delightful, hot, powerful shower. Check out was managed with the same efficiency. We have another night at The Independent en route to Greece and are looking forward to another refreshing stay.

It was the first time when we were in Rome and we were really satisfied. It's close to the Termini station but there wasn't any noice in the room. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. And the view from the terrace was simply perfect :) If you search for a hotel in Rome, the Independent hotel is a good choice!

Friendly, Good Location and Clean”

Breakfast was excellent, Staffs were friendly and helpful, Easy location.

My stay in Hotel Independent was absolutely great. We were in the group of 6 and the receptionist were well taking care of us and being very helpful. Love this hotel and is very centralized and close to the train station. A bit noise if your room is facing the street apart from that everything is great expected. Need to thanks the hotel receptionist Georgina (if I have not spelled out her name wrongly). She has been very kind and helpful. The breakfast stuff Mr. Lucci was well taking care of us. He works hard all the time and with smiling. Love this hotel and will certainly been back. Also, forgotten to say thanks to the other manager who has upgraded us to a junior suite. We have a wonderful time in there. It was the best hotel we stayed during our trip in Italy. You can find foods and drinks to buy easily at the Hotel Independent.

Lovely hotel in the heart of Rome”

The hotel felt new and luxurious, the room was very nice compared to similar 4* hotels in Europe, clean and had everything we needed for our short 2 night stay in Rome. The staff were amazing!

We arrived late and were very well welcomed, and overall we felt the staff were amazing, guided us for what to do and see, gave us a map of Rome and helped out a lot. Our room was nice, very luxurious compared to similar 4* rated hotels in Europe. It was also clean and the bed felt comfortable (perhaps slightly to hard for me). The bathroom could be improved a little to be in the same standard as the room itself, the faucet replaced or cleaned. (Still nothing wrong with the bathroom as it is). The hotel is over all one of my best in Europe and reasonably priced. I am definitely giving Hotel Independent a great recommendation and I look forward to stay there during my next trip to Rome.

Great location with nice roof top view”

The front runs 24 hours and responses kindly. Roof top bar, the breakfast place, is fabulous with a nice view overlooking Rome and Termini station. It's really close to the bus stop, and the Volturno bus stop is just right in front of the hotel. Easy to access any site in Rome. Cool and dry room. I asked extra-bed since my family, 4 people, stayed in a quadruple room. The Sofa-bed was good enough to sleep. I guess the weak point of this hotel is the noise. Especially when you have a baby or your neighbor-guest has. I heard a baby crying in the middle of the night and flushing sound. It didn't bother me at all but if you are sensitive to noise, you might need to concern about it. Overall, I definitely recommend this hotel.

They recommended incredible restaurants allowed us to check in early and held out bags so we could check out late!The location near the train was truly great. The rooms were clean, well appointed and had a lovely balcony overlooking Rome .

As we were checking out of the hotel the manager came out to offer his assistance and have a chat. An overall great experience. We will definitely go back.

Our room also comes with free mini bar (4 free bottled water, 3 cans of soft drinks, 2 coffee capsules, biscuits and chips, tea bags and instant coffees). Another bonus was the welcoming snacks (also free) on the rooftop bar which has stunning night view. The rooftop bar is opened till 1am and is definitely worth having a drink in. Breakfast serves a good variety of food and there’s snacks for kids and travelers too. The independent hotel is definitely worth staying if you ever visit Rome!

This is a good experience of staying this hotel. The location is close by Termini, it only takes about 10 mins from Termini to hotel, and it's convenient to buy daily staffs such as water, snacks, and teeth brush. The snack bar of hotel is free except win and beer. However, the best thing is the view on the top floor, you can see the night view at night bar, also have good view in the breakfast time. In my opinion, this is the hotel which I recommend in Rome, room price is reasonable.

Please note about Agoda (booking company we used to book our stay at the Independent Hotel; once at the beginning of our trip and once for one night prior to leaving Italy) we traveled with another couple whose last night stay was cancelled without contact to this couple by Agoda-the only reminder we all received was the DAY AFTER our stay at the Independent Hotel to remind us of our stay-my husband and my reservation was fine as Agoda had our CC on file but the other couple did not have their CC on file nor did they receive a reminder that the payment was due like Agoda did prior to our first stay-luckily the Independent was able to book a room at the Independent vs sending our friends to another hotel. The Independent recommended not using Agoda as there has been problems with Agoda before. We agree and highly recommend not using Agoda for your booking needs-on top is this, they can also be very difficult to reach.

Modern Hotel right next to Rome Train Station...”

Modern Design, Location, Breakfast with a view

We were prepared for lots of Arts in Rome, and hence we chose a hotel with a modern design as we were afraid to be overwhelmed with the classic arts. Hotel Independent is very conveniently located 10 min walk from the Roma Termini Train Station. Check in was swift and efficient, the very handsome reception spoke excellent English and provided all the neccessary information. This hotel provides free coffee and bottled water as well. Breakfast on the roof was great with a magnificent view, the spread wasn't huge, but it varied slightly everyday which was great. Free Ice is also provided to all guests. If you wish, you can also borrow an ipad from the reception. Internet access in the room was very fast. Room was modernly designed with small touch of "Italian" inside. Toiletries were provided daily as well. Great Value for Money. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a hotel as a base to explore Rome.

The Independent hotel is at great location(6mins walk from Roma termini) and walk distance to many tourists attractions. We really enjoyed our 4 nights stay. When we checked-in, the reception gave us a map and went through most attractions with us, gave us some very useful tips. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast buffet was very nice and the waiters are absolutely pleasant. The roof top dinning area has stunning view of the city. Would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone!

An Oasis aongst the craziness of Rome”

My family and I absolutely loved the hotel. The rooms are very modern and tastefully decorated and there was more than enough space for the 2 extra beds for the kids. The breakfast was also exceptional. The hotel is a little away from the tourist attractions, but really not an issue at all as it is close to the Metro. I chose the hotel due to its close location to the Rome Termini station which worked out perfectly, coming straight from the airport and one block away. A hidden gem was Tratoria Dell'Omo one block away and the best food in town.

Best Stay in Rome”

Staff, Service and Location

We had a 5D4N stay in this hotel. We were greeted with a pleasant smile by the receptionist. Their location which is near to Marsala Street is a bonus as many tour buses and shuttle bus (to and from Fiumicino Airport) are stationed there. Termini is just less than 10mins walk. Our room was very spacious and they attended to our needs promptly. Credits also go to the housekeeping team who made us feel very comfortable whenever we return from the day's outing everyday. We had an excellent experience with the hotel's baristas as they constantly enquire if everything was ok for us. Wonderful view from the terrace just outside the cafe. We will definitely come back here should we visit Rome again.
