As other reviewers have said, this is a 3-star hotel with a great location. We had a two-room family suite with a queen bed and single bed in one room, and two single beds in the other, with a closing door between them, and separate air conditioning units in each. The professional photos on this site make the rooms look much nicer than they are. However, the simple, older rooms were functional and in a way, added to the charm of being in Rome. We had no problem with water pressure. How can you beat being able to look out your window at a lovely, cobblestone side street every morning and to walk over to the Spanish Steps (and adjacent metro stop) in only 2-3 blocks? The area around Termini is cheaper, but we heard from others that, especially at night, it feels rougher around the edges and less pleasant over there.
We were on the third floor, and with the shutters and double-pane windows closed and the a/c on - our rooms were quiet enough. A big selling point for us was that the Hotel Madrid could accommodate our family of five in one room; that is rare in Rome! If there are 3 or fewer of you, you could pick from a hundred different places. We all loved the breakfast each morning - it was a highlight for us.
The staff at the desk arranged transportation for us from and to FCO which made it easy when we arrived and departed. Even when our flight arrived 3 hours late, the driver was waiting for us with our name on a sign. You have to leave your room key at the front desk when you exit the hotel for the day, but you can keep your passports in your in-room safe. There is a laundromat about 6 blocks away and restaurants all over. All in all, a nice stay at Hotel Madrid.
