“Really great stay”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

My husbands sister recommended this hotel and it was a great recommendation. The room was modern and clean and spacious. Good way to start our first time to Italy. Close to Termini and to walkable to all the sites. All the staff in the breakfast room were very helpful and friendly, especially Luigi! He made the best cappuccinos for us every day! Pietro at the front desk was also very friendly and helpful. thank you Independent Hotel!

My husband and I spent 4 nights there, it was the perfect stay in Rome. The location is great, its so close to termini station which gets you almost everywhere. We arrived from the airport using the bus which stopped at termini and 2 min walking and we were there. the stuff and very friendly and helpful. the rooms are clean and comfortable. the breakfast is just great and very rich, every thing is fresh and delicious. I recommend having breakfast on the rooftop when the weather is nice.

I spent one night in this hotel in Rome and really surprised me with the correction of the room presentation on their site and the reality. Small and delicate you don't see it from the street this hotel but once you get in it suprise you with the cleaness and seriousity of people. Hotel has been renovated recently and thus is very nice to sleep in a clean and nice room. Spacious room , windows can open , good bad and nice and claen bathroom. A bit serious still with the furniture choosen but very nice for Rome hotel.Good breakfast at the 8th floor. Located close to Roma Termini railway station and metro Republica. Nice staff and quite efficiant. A lot of restaurants around.

Although not a grand 5 star hotel, this is a great hotel that is within walking distance to Termini station. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The lobby itself is small and so is the elevator; the elevator supposedly fits 5 people, and is slightly wider than my luggage. The stairs winds around the elevator shaft (a modern interpretation of the old layout) that provides the light to the stairwell (it has translucent paneling that is lighted from within). But once you get to the room, it was quite spacious that you don't really mind that small lobby and elevator.

They also have a nice garden floor that you can look out to the city skyline. They only serve breakfast (they use Nespresso machine and have a decent choice of continental and some hot breakfast) that comes with the room. The view is nice; however, the nicer view is unfortunately covered by plastic window. This makes taking pictures difficult due to distortions.

The room is nice and modern and kept clean. The only drawback is that some of the sockets are tied to the light switch or the room key. So if you plan to charge your electronic device, use the socket that's close to the TV...of course, this may vary from room to room so you may need a bit of experimenting. In my case, I only found one socket that you could charge overnight. The sockets are also tied to the room key. There is a slot that you put your card key that controls the room's electricity (sockets, a/c etc) to help save on electrical cost. Problem is that you can't charge anything while you are away.

Overall though, I enjoyed the stay here. I can forego the grand lobbies and restaurant as long as the room is clean and spacious and the staff friendly...which they are.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the train terminal and the favorable reviews. The hotel is fairly new and a great hotel. The hotel is less than a 10 minute walk(with suitcases) from the train station.The rooms were fairly large (by European standards) and very modern. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent-very fresh, a good selection of hot and cold items, and good cappuccino. The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. We would highly recommend the hotel!
