I confess we have not stayed here..yet. But I have just booked three nights for later this summer. I considered this hotel because of the TA reviews BUT chose it because of the incredible customer service I received on two phone calls prior to booking. I like a big room with breakfast included. I felt I needed to speak live... More

Hotel Orfila is a delightful and very pleasant gem of a hotel, ideally located within an easy walk of the museums, the Salamanca shopping district, and vibrant downtown Madrid. Rooms are elegant and very comfortable and service is superb. Hotel staff not only provided great recommendations and reservations, but went out of their way to book us train tickets to... More

We stayed 4 nights at this well located hotel near the very centre of Madrid. The first thing you experience is the service which is the best I have ever encountered in Spain. It is friendly and nothing is to much. You feel very quickly at ease and they are great at suggesting restaurants and places to go. The rooms... More

We just spent 6 nights at the Hotel Orfila in Madrid and had a fabulous time. The Hotel is small, well located within easy walking distance to fine dining, and the staff was amazing. They arranged reservations at several fine restaurants, were unbelievably accommodating (even going out to purchase hair spray for my wife one evening shortly before we were... More

We spent three wonderful days here in March 2014. Lovely large room with spacious bathroom. The staff were extremely helpful and solicitous.. Instead of the ubiquitous chocolate on the bedspread they provided a soothing lotion for weary feet that was much appreciated at the end of long days. The absolute highlight was the small traditional dining room with anything but... More

I had a short stay here in March 2014 (room 30). The hotel is well located and has a cosy lobby. My room was large, with a comfortable bed and excellent shower. The only minor nitpick would be that the bedside light could be brighter. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, and flexible about a late checkout. I would... More

A gem of a hotel, tucked away in a quiet street but only five minutes' walk from an interchange metro station. All the public areas are graciously furnished and carpeted, with interesting colours and patterns. A selection of old prints and antique ceramics completes the impression of effortless and comfortable gentility. The dining room, which overlooks a Greek-style patio and... More
