My daughter has Just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at the independent. She had a triple room which included superior bed and a single. There was plenty of space, very clean, breakfast very good and staff helpful and friendly. Location slightly away from attractions, however would still stay again.

The rooms are large, modern and clean! Added to this the service received was second to none! Luigi on the front desk was more than happy to attend to all of our requests along with the other front end staff always welcoming us when we arrived. The roof top bar is a great place to start and end the day!... More

My wife and I stayed here on our first-ever visit to Rome and were not disappointed. We had researched extensively on both TripAdvisor and other sites, as well as consulted friends who had visited Rome. The hotel is situated in walking distance of Termini, the main train station in Rome, which is also the hub for the Rome subway system.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Independent , 5 minutes walk from Termini train station, 3 stations away from Colosseum or half hour walk . Free Wi-Fi, rooms were beautiful and new, very clean and comfortable and spacious. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast is on the 8th Floor with views of Rome and roof top terraces were wonderful and relaxing.

This was our first visit to Italy. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful from the receptionists to the breakfast staff. Juan Carlos never failed to greet us with a genuine smile and a buongiourno on the roof terrace every morning no matter how busy it was! The room was exactly how the hotel's official website photographs portrayed... More

Perfect place, perfect location, spacious room, modern and new. Staff wonderfully friendly (especially James at the bar!). Superb terrace with beautiful view of Rome... Breakfast is served there and a drink after a long day is nice too! The room was spot less, bed confortable... Best place we've ever been!
