We stayed at the hotel and met up with friends from UK,Denmark,South Africa,and USA. The location is very quiet, yet close to the attractions, shops etc. The Hotel is very elegant and the Management and staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. The rooms were beautiful, clean and roomy. We all agreed that it was great and will definitely be back... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this superbly presented hotel. On arrival it was clear that service was the top priority. We were early but our room was ready and we were given a coffee whilst staff took our baggage to the room. The concierge kept us informed of local arrangements and offered all assistance. Our room was superb, facing... More

I had a one night visit in Madrid in Januari 2015 and chose Hotel Orfila ! I did not regret my choice, it was a nice little gem and had a great staff and ambiance. Madrid is not as expensive as Barcelona and Orfila is well worth every € I spent. If you look for a well located 5 star... More

When planning a trip to several European cities, I felt like Hotel Orfila would be the best of the best and that was certainly the case. From the moment that we walked in to the lobby, weary from travel, service went above and beyond. We first met Jose and he actually made me laugh as he tried to tease me... More

What more is there to say?! ...its like your own little 16th Century apartment, in the centre of Madrid. We were greeted with a glass of Cava in the lounge, after our "stressful" journey... so lovely.. Breakfast is just lovely, we had smoked salmon, and Cava. Extremely courteous staff, romantic and perfect. They cannot do enough for you.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
