“A very pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

This hotel to me was a very pleasant surprise. Considering the fact that Madison is situated (literally) twenty metres from Termini, I feared a massive noise explosion and disturbed sleep. Not so in any way. The walls are literally soundproof and the only way to hear from the outside world is to open the window.
My single room was beautifully refurnished and perfectly clean, the breakfast was solid and wide in range (not the usual continental crap) and the only backside to the hotel is the owner himself (?). Don't expect a smile if he is the man behind the counter - which he normally is....

Bad experience. I had to sleep here for one night due to train problems. The building is old, common spaces are dirty, the atmosphere is of inaccuracy. My room was clean but very little, and there is no complete silence... The position is very close to Termini Railway Station, but I don't know if this is a pro or a con... People in the neighbourhood is not my preferred one. I didn't try the breakfast. In other words, this hotel is good if you lose your train and you have to sleep in Rome to leave next morning, but nothing more.

The stay at Madison hotel, was a pleasant one. The hotel is just outside Roma Termini. It is a huge advantage for tourists. The breakfast was very good. The rooms were comfortable. A minor complaint that I have about the hotel is that, the bathtub drain was not working when I was given the room. The staff quickly came to the room for inspection. However, it took close to one hour to sort out the matter. I didn't like sitting in the hotel room when I could have seen more of Rome. I would have also preferred if the Wifi access was free. We have to pay to access the internet services.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: If you are short on time, take the hop on, hop off buses, which are located just outside the Madison Hotel. This will save you a lot of time. You will also get to see a lot more of Rome than walking, or taking the metro.

Room quiet and clean. Breakfast average as milk powder used and coffee very average. Opened windows for fresh air. The children loved the adventure of finding the room through the maze of corridors, but I got lost.

I had booked the hotel through an agency in uae. When i went there, i was informed the room were not there and were asked to go another sister hotel of them. Room, ac was not working and it took 30 minutes for somebody to come and verify the machine is not working. We were then shifted to another room where ac was supposed to work and was another dump room. We were wasteing nearly three hours in the shifting. Service is extremely poor. Please do not go this hotel. IN cas if you travel agent books it, please ask him to change it.

Selected this hotel due to close proximity to Termini Train Station. Great location, easy to find and very convenient to train travelers. The room was not very large but it was clean - room safe is a plus. The bed was not very comfortable. Cable TV had almost continuous digital breakup and the audio selection to English language did not work. They advertised Wi-Fi but it was not available in the rooms, only on first floor. Also, the Wi-Fi is a pay-to-use service - 5 Euro for 3 continuous hours. The windows and shutters opened fully (even on the sixth floor) and the storm windows completely seal out noise from the road below. Customer service was below par - one of five employees met our expectations. Most treated us as if we were bothering them (for instance when we asked them to open our locked room safe or when we asked for directions to a nearby attraction). I do not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Sixth floor rooms were very quiet - double windows virtually eliminate noise from the busy road belo...
