“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We've stayed there for 3 nights, the room was very clean and spacious, the staff is very friendly. The best and breakfast is located less than 5 minutes walk from termini station and nearby all attractions.
I would definitely recommend this B&B if you looking for good budget accommodation. Don't forget to try the restaurant downstairs, they served delicious Italian food for cheap price!

Went to Rome for my 21st birthday with my friends we stayed in here! It was amazing! The Bed and Breakfast clean! And we loved Pino who made the best coffee ever he was really helpful and told us where to visit, the beach he recommended was so beautiful! would recommend this place to everyone! it was quiet at night and safe... Pino if you are reading this we miss you and no one makes coffee like you! Hope to visit again soon! love the English countyside girls (Millie, Jasmine, Danielle and laura) haha xxxxxxxx

P.s Great links to all transport including coach to airport- 5 five minute walk there is also a train station there!

We spent five nights in Rome. Our stay in Independence Square Inn was great. The location is good - very near Termini Station. For Rome, it is very good value and the place is very clean and neat. Our host was Pino. He may be a bit of a rough diamond, but he grew up in the USA, speaks great English and went out of his way to help us. I got sick while in Rome and the staff were really caring and helpful. This is a real gem and I would recommend it to anyone travelling on a budget.

stayed here 1 night en route from Lucca to Australia...excellent location...nice basic clean room.....we were able to easily walk to the Termini for our airport pick up.....by bus as reccommended by Gianlucca...he was very helpful on check in but the guy doing breakfast and checkout was quite abrupt to say the least....beware of the taxi driver who charged us E28 from the termini....would have loved to have taken his number and reported him...gross overcharging....overall the hotel was a great choice though......would reccomend

Because we didn't go to Rome to sit in a room, we didn't want to pay the earth. This place offers great value for money and a good location near to Termini station and the metro. We had an en-suite room as we just don't do shared bathrooms - obviously to accommodate the bathroom, the room was tiny. I wouldn't like to think I was staying there longer than a couple of nights coz there really wasn't much room. That said, the room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room only sits 4 at a time and its first come first served however the guy brought our breakfast to the room (pastries, juice and coffee) when it was full our first morning. The room didn't have air con but supplied a fan - I imagine it gets really hot in the height of summer. We left the window open the 2nd nights and it wasn't too noisy.

Very good option for us since we were on a budget. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The shared bathroom was clean and was never a problem. It is not too far from Termini Station but not too close because around Termini can be a little scary. We felt safe coming back to the hotel even late at night. Although, make sure to get good directions. When we first arrived and were looking for the hotel, we thought we were lost but we had just walked right past it because the sign for the hotel is tiny. We were happy with our experience and would stay here again.

The owner Gianluca was really kind and helpful! The morning recepcionist was kinda rude but he was ok...
The hotel is located 5 blocks away from Termini Station which is great coz all trains arrive and leave from there. I walked everywhere but The Vatican City (Gotta take the subway) Colosseum and Roman Forum is about 15 min walk.
The area is not bad and it was safe at night, I walked every night and nothing happened.
The hotel is on the 2nd floor and breakfast on 1st floor (No lift) that seems to be very common in Rome, but if you travel with old people or to much luggage might be a problem...
