We stayed at the Independent for 6 nights this past August and were very pleased with our stay. The hotel is very close to the train and metro stations, so we were able to visit all of the major attractions (Vatican, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Colloseum) very easily. Our room was large for European standards and the bed was large and very comfortable. There was lots of storage space for our luggage, clothing and toiletries. The bathroom has a tub and shower and was adequate for our needs. The room was also very clean and we had more than enough towels for our use. There is also satellite TV, but we were too tired at the end of the day to watch it! The breakfast was the best we have ever had on our trips to Italy. This was our fourth trip to Rome. The breakfast is served until 10:30 and includes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, yogurt, fresh fruit salad and variety of fresh fruits, juice, fresh mozzerella and cold cuts, cereal, pastries, breads and of course cappuchino, coffee and hot chocolate. Breakfast is on the 6th floor and if you are lucky, you can get a seat on the terrace and enjoy a beautiful view of Rome with breakfast. The entire staff is very helpful and friendly. The cleaning staff does an excellent job and the rooms are immaculately clean. The terrace just opened the week we were there. It is on the 8th floor and offers a spectacular view of Rome. There are tables and lounge chairs on the terrace as well. We were informed that a bar will be opening soon as well. After all, this is a brand new hotel and a work in progress. But, we were very pleased with our experience and will definitely stay here again next summer. On our last night in Rome, my husband tripped and unfortunately, had a visit to the emergency room. When we returned to the hotel, the night manager was very helpful. He called a taxi, explained the situation to the driver and helped us to find a pharmacy at 11:00 pm to fill my husband's prescriptions. He also helped with our baggage and ordered a taxi for our return to the airport. The cost is also very reasonable for the services this hotel provides. Most importantly (we were here in August), the air conditioning works very well and the rooms were wonderfully cool when we returned from sightseeing. Restaurants are a little scarce in the immediate area, but a 10 minute walk in the direction of the train station will give you dozens of choices. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay that is close to the train station and wants easy access to all of the tourist attractions.
