“Great stay at The Independent Hotel”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of January. Hotel is located about 5 mins walk from the termini, if like me, you have never been to Rome before, there are multiple exits at the termini, to get to the hotel make sure you take the exit that is signed as "Via Marsalla" turn left and walk until you see the flag signs for the Independent which is located on the right hand side of the road. It took me an hour to find the hotel but hopefully this will help you! :)
The reception area is very small but this did not bother me. Hotel room was very spacious and clean no complaints there. Breakfast was included in the price and was basic enough (pastries, bread, meat cheese, yoghurt, juices, scrambled egg)but good value at the same time. In the evening time they serve drinks,sandwiches and salads.
Overall I was very happy with my stay at The Independent and will for sure stay again in the future :) Highly Recommend!

We have recently stayed at this hotel and I must say that it is a wonderful place!It is right next to Termini which makes it very convenient for the metro and a variety of busses to go everywhere.
The room was large with quality decoration and totally clean!!The stuff made it like new every morning and there was cafe and tea in.The bed was a bit hard.The view wasn't great from the room, as it was at the back of the hotel,but it was open to the eye.The roof top and the breakfast there is absolutely great and with good variety.Nothing wrong with the elevator,if you know the sizes in Rome!Don't be put off by the location;it is very safe day or night.Although it was raining all the time, whole Rome is an amazing old museum.Only negative thing is that quality food at restaurants is very expensive!Best thing is the coffee!!We will definitely be back at this hotel!!100% success!

Room Tip: Try to choose a high floor like 5,6 or 7th as they are quiet and have a better view,but it is a quie...

We spent 2 nights here and couldn't have asked for more, clean spacious rooms, really comfortable bed and plenty of tea and coffee available.

The staff could not have been better, all were friendly and helpful.

Really convenient for train station (5 minute walk) and it took us approximately 15-20 mins to get to Trevi fountain etc.

Lovely breakfast with fabulous views.

We will definitely stay again next time I'm in Rome!

Typing this on my iPad using Hotel wifi.

First off, hotel is 5 mins from Roma termini. For those who don't wish to drag luggages for many hundreds of meters or who don't have airport transfers, the location is amazing. I walked 20 mins to the colosseum and also reached a main shopping street in 15 mins. Very convenient for me.

Rooms are clean and sizable. I booked a deluxe room, got upgraded to a junior suite. Comes with a small sofa, table with 2 seats and then the bed is in another room altogether. Decent amount of space.

Hotel staff are mostly helpful. Provide us with maps and tell us how to get to the places we wanted.

Breakfast was good. Fruit, yogurt, and cooked food and some pastries. Enough to get the day started but not too much to spoil your appetite for the more important meals of the day.

I will recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Rome.

We booked this hotel through Agoda and we got a really good rate for a classic room. When we arrived we were met by Pietro a very efficient, professional and friendly receptionist!! He upgraded our room to superior because he explained that when the hotel is quite they always try to make sure that the guests always get the best!!! The room was spacious, clean and very nice! The bed and pillows very comfortable and we even got an espresso machine! Breakfast is served on the roof terrece and it was lovely!
A hotel a would definatelly come back to!!!

The hotel is located within a two-minute walk to Termini train/subway station, which is the central point of all underground trains and most above-ground trains in Rome.

Pros:
Excellent location
Friendly and helpful hotel staff, particularly a lady named Giorgiu at the Front Desk
Relatively quiet hotel, yet located very close to Termini
Daily replenishment of soap, bodywash, and shampoo
Free Wi-Fi with strong connection
SkyTV has several stations in English and even more in Italian
Free breakfast buffet with a plentiful spread of mostly cold items
Strong water pressure in shower/bath
Great views from the 8th floor roof
Hotel is surrounded by restaurants and small shops
Excellent location

Cons or Suggestions for Improvement:
Limited restaurant capabilities
Pricey hotel rooms, but you are paying for location, location, location
Install safety grab bars in the showers
Include operating instructions for the HVAC unit
Include stickers or signs to indicate if hotel water is potable

Room Tip: Rooms on the opposite side of the main entrance are quiet.

This hotel is really lovely, very clean with good facilities. The rooms we booked were both comfortable & met all of our needs. Unfortunately the sky tv as advertised has no English channels other than news & music.
The breakfast was good with a varied selection.
We wanted to use the bar in the evenings, but the prices were so extortionate we went elsewhere.
We booked through booking.com & was told that this has a checkout time of midday, the hotel says 11am. The lady on reception honoured this though although she did say it was an error as their checkout time is 11am.
The location is great, really close to the termini for easy access to all points of interest.
Improving the sky tv would be good as it's nice to relax & watch tv in the evenings, thank goodness for the free wifi (although sometimes weak!)
We would definitely re-book this hotel if we were to visit Rome again.
