The rooms have modern furnishings and good linen service.
The bathroom is impeccably clean, with marble counters and a large mirror.
I was in a double twin-bed room, not very spacious, but I wasn't looking for a fancy room.
There's no view outside the window, but we hardly spent leisure time in the hotel during our Istanbul stay.
Overall I was satisfied by the price/value ratio, and have no negative comments about the hotel's facilities except to say that some of the personnel at the reception desk weren't fluent in English.
The Madison's location is its main asset, on a quiet street, and safe to walk to and from Taksim Square. There are a couple of shops nearby open 24hrs selling bottled water, cigarettes, and other refreshments.
The hotel is also very close to the Havas airport bus stop. You can take the Havas Bus from the airport directly to Taksim square. It's a coach bus, and a very comfortable ride into the city.
In addition to being near the Taksim square, the metro station, and the Istiklal commercial & entertainment district, near the Madison's location is Cumhurriyet Caddesi, the boulevard where the Hilton & the Divan hotels are located. I mention this because at the beginning of this boulevard, just a few minutes away from the Madison, one can find a number of kofteci, kebab and pastry shops, which are quieter and nicer to sit in than the constantly busy eateries smack in the center of Taksim square.
