Fortunately, we changed our hotel reservations from the Ramblas to this charming hotel located on a quiet street. The staff was very helpful by making suggestions and dinner reservations at some excellent restaurants within walking distance. Also, the staff helped us with our train reservations for Toledo and the Prado. The breakfast room is very classy. We decided that we... More

If you prefer large, bustling hotels in the commercial center of a city, this is not for you. It is quiet, charming, located on a street that is 1 block long, with an extremely friendly staff. It is an equally easy walk to the Prado, Reina Sofia, and old city. So we thought it was perfectly located. The street was... More

The Orfila is a hotel in the old style: overstuffed furniture, concierges in tails, the feeling of a formal home. But the rooms are comfortable, bathrooms well-equipped, and above all the staff helpful and friendly well beyond what might be expected. Although the hotel is a very few minutes walk from the Plaza Colon and the busy Paseo del Prado,... More

Pros: Cozy little hotel in a quite neighborhood. Friendly and helpful staff. Spacious rooms. Clean & tidy housekeeping. Nice garden at the back, for that at-home feeling. Cons: Sound insulation a bit on the meager side. Limited selection of items in the menu. Prices on the steep side. Practically no service(not even bread) before 8 a.m., so not for those... More

I stayed here with my teen daughter for two nights about a month ago. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We liked the location as well. Near many of the things we wanted to see, but on a quiet street. The breakfast buffet was a favorite as well! The rooms we stayed in were spacious and... More

We really loved our stay at Orfila - a charming small, quiet and relaxed hotel with excellent staff and lovely food and drinks. The Gin and Tonics alone are worth the stay! Lovely terrace and wonderful breakfasts (mmmm almond tart) - a real gem. Thanks to all the staff

My husband and I just enjoyed a total of 13 nights at the Hoel Orfila and what a pleasure it was! Small, friendly, homey and sooo lovely! Right on the edge of the Serrano on a quiet street. Short walks away from charming restaurants and cafes, boutiques and embassy mansions. Not part of the noisy city but easily accessible to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The small XIX century palace was transformed into a hotel in 1999, respecting the majestic style of the era, at the same time as installing all the appropriate commodities for a luxuorious establishment from the end of the nineteenth century. Only a year after it opened, the hotel joined the Relais Chateaux Chain of hotels, a group of the most prestigious hotels in the world. The hotels belonging to the Relais Chateaux must have 4 or 5 stars and less than 100 rooms, and be outstanding their strict respect for the five concepts that define the philosophy of this hotel chain: character, courtesy, charm and cuisine.Located in a quite exclusive residential area in the cultural and business centre of Madrid, this creates a framework for a different concept of the hotel business in the capital of Spain.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------El palacete del siglo XIX, se transformó en hotel en 1999 respetando el aire señorial de la época, al tiempo que se le dota de todas las comodidades propias de un establecimiento de lujo de finales de este siglo.Solo un año más tarde de su inauguración, el hotel ingresó en la Cadena Relais Chateaux, que agrupa a los hoteles más prestigiosos del mundo. Los hoteles miembros de Relais Châteaux deben contar con 4 y 5 estrellas y menos de 100 habitaciones, y distinguirse por cumplir estrictamente los cinco conceptos que definen la filosofía de la cadena: carácter, cortesía, calma, encanto y cocina.Situado en una zona residencial, exclusiva y tranquila en el centro cultural de negocios de Madrid, sirve como marco a un concepto diferente de hostelería en la capital de España. ... more   less
