Reach all points of interest from this traveler’s hotel located just a football field away from Rome’s central train station. The Madison is housed in a 19th-century palace in a busy city area and presents itself as the ideal base for visiting the ancient sights and recharging one’s batteries between journeys. The hotel provides a “relaxation room” with English-style walnut wood furniture and travertine floor, exposed beams, and walls painted with Venetian stuccowork, which overlooks the central train station but is very quiet due to its soundproof windows. Just outside, restaurants, shops, and banks abound and several artistically and culturally important sites can be reached in minutes by foot or subway including the Porta Pia, Quirinale, Trevi Fountain, Villa Borghese, Piazza Venezia, and Colosseum. Its 123 rooms are elegantly furnished and each includes a private marble bathroom with shower and hairdryer, direct dial phone, individually controlled air conditioning, satellite TV, mini-bar, safe, modem plug and double-glazed soundproof windows. Rooms featuring Jacuzzi bathtubs are also available. On-site facilities include a bar, a restaurant, and a conference room accommodating up to 45 people.
