Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The Independent Hotel is perfectly located within a few minutes walk of the main train and metro stations at Termini. We had a lovely modern room on the 6th floor with a balcony overlooking the Termini plaza, this gave some nice sunshine and great sunsets. Overall the hotel is modern and clean, there is one small lift so you need to be patient, you could take the stairs but there are a lot of them! The staff were polite, friendly, welcoming and helpful. We didn’t use the restaurant or bar. There’s a full mini bar with free tea, coffee and water. Overall this is a great place to stay, it’s very quiet even road facing and everything you would want to see is in walking distance or by metro. Highly recommended.

Hotel's Favourite
Wife and I checked in at the reception on 13 Nov @ 11.30am, receptionist Genevra shared with us a great news that hotel has upgraded us a bigger room for free (senior suite that comes with a balcony) ! We were happy and thanked her graciously! We arrived at the scenic rooftop bar for lunch on 12pm. We were greeted by a cheerful and steady waitress, Michelly. We requested her to serve us lunch asap as we need to rush off within 45 mins for a tour in vatican city. She said she will do her best as lunch service just begins after her busy breakfast service. Food came in and the lasagna was delicious AF guys, the pasta was handmade which gives it a nice bite to it yet and yet a soft texture..Time after time Michelly check on us too and also promoted Dianas place. Dianas place served us great soup(zucchini cream) & delicious deserts puff pastry with dark chocolate and raspberry purree! Hope great business comes knocking on your doors. Best regards, Zhi Hua & Linh

Returned to this hotel after stopping here on a previous visit to Rome. It's in a great location, literally a few minutes walk to Termini Railway Station or the Metro, so it's well located for visting the sights of Rome. We travelled with Jet 2 and were pleased to receive a complimentary upgrade from a classic to a superior room. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed, in this case it was a twin bedded room, as I was travelling with my son. There's breakfast served from 7am to 10.30am on the 8th floor,with fantastic views of the domes of Rome. Breakfast was included in our room rate and offered a range of hot and cold foods, plenty of cereals and fruit, fresh coffee an tea and a range of breads which you can toast using the toaster. Plenty of choices to enable a good start to the day. The breakfast area becomes a bar and casual eatery at night and we thoroughly enjoyed a meal here, as an alternative to finding a restauarant nearby, simply because it was pouring down that particulary night, somwe decided to stay dry. We would happily stay here again if we're fortunate enought to return to Rome and can recommend to others.

We stayed here for 6 nights. The rooms are very well appointed with everything you could need. Rooms on top floors have a balcony. The staff all speak English and go out of their way to be helpful. Breakfast is included, a very good choice available. Restaurant on top floor with a rooftop terrace also. Small meals/snacks available and a well stocked bar. The hotel has a sister restaurant 3 doors down which offers a 20% discount for residents. 5 mins walk from Rome Termini station and also to Repubblica metro. 30 mins pleasant walk to Trevi Fountain. Would definitely choose this hotel again.

This is not a four star hotel; poor amenities and room cleanliness was poor. Stayed in August 2023 during a heatwave - smell of cooking coming from the kitchen into the room every day via the air con, ants in the room and boiling hot in the corridor near the elevator. Too far from historic sites and what is not mentioned is that this hotel stands in a very dodgy area of Rome - the taxi driver suggested we never went out after dark or walked alone. Crime ridden area.

Dear W_d_Y1, We are sorry to receive your feedback many months after your stay. We are sorry about the ants, we have no ants in the rooms and when this accident happens it is usually because some food has been left in the room and we take immediate action to clean. Our Air Conditioning system is (as per italian laws) totally disconnected from any other air flow systems (like, for example, the kitchen chimneys), it is possible that the cooking smell was coming, loose in the air in summer, from a restaurant nearby of private apartment. As for the location, we are 20 minutes walk from the Colosseum, 5 from Piazza della Repubblica, 15 from Spanish Steps and one step from the train station, from two metro lines and buses taking Guests everywhere. The area is not dangerous at all. It is Rome City Centre, maybe the taxi driver was too anxious and we are sorry you felt scared. All our Guests go and come anytime they want and nothing (luckily) ever happens, although normally the basic concept is "always take care". We are very sorry for the very low score, thank you very much for taking the time to leave your impressions even after months from your stay... Regards, Simona Rongione, Resident Manager at The Independent Hotel**** in Rome

Colchester, United Kingdom57 contributions62 helpful votes
Excellent hotel which suited us for a four night break just fine. Located very close to the main railway and Metro line, it is well positioned to access the key sites in Rome. The entrance lobby is cramped and understated but this belies a comfortable and well designed accommodation. Very comfortable beds, hot power shower, and nice decor meant we were very satisfied with our room. Breakfast was served on the 8th floor terrace ( with great views) and offered a very wide choice of cuisine within a small serving area. Staff were friendly and attentive and this added to our enjoyment of this hotel. Lift was a bit slow but this is nitpick rather than a complaint. We would definitely use this hotel again if we stayed in Rome

Dear Nicholas W, We wish to thank you so much for your excellent review. We acknowledge a couple of points that can still be improved in the future, the small Front Desk area (although we feature a very huge and comfortable lobby where Guests can sit and relax) and one lift only although very efficient (the building is a historical, elegant palace of Rome City Center). On the other hand, we are very, very happy we accomplished all your expectaions about a journey in the Eternal City. Please come and visit us again.

We stayed 1 night at this hotel. This hotel is good for 1 night. I would not stay here for an extended stay. The lobby was not inviting. The reception staff is not too friendly. I read in a couple of reviews about getting a welcome drink I had to ask for mine. There was construction going on in the room right across from our room. The elevator takes forever! Room was nice but small. Bathroom was nice. Breakfast is good and serviceable. The location is great as it is right across from the train station.

Dear Nidhi, thank you so much for taking the time to leave review here, we are sorry your satisfaction is not total, our comfortable rooms and custom oriented service makes The Independent Hotel a very good choice for long stays, many families choose us and we are sure you would be happy with your stay if you ever come back, which we would love. No doubt the lift can be busy, this is an old building and we could add no more than one lift, very efficient though. Sorry for the bad mood at the reception, we will try and understand if we can do any better. Thank you from the whole Staff. Sincerely, Simona Rongione
