“A delightful ultra-luxury hotel in the heart of Madrid”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Located on a quiet and charming side street in heart of Madrid, the Orfilia is one of the most beautiful and romantic hotels in all of Europe. From the moment you arrive in the lobby, you are surrounded by elegance and class. The rooms are very large and plush, tastefully decorated with art work and vintage furnishings. The service and attention to detail by the staff is above all expectations.The hotel restaurant is a gourmet delight! For starters we had a delightful watermelon foam appitizer and smoked mussels in sauce, followed by a scrumptous consume. For our main course I had the venison and my husband had the grilled octopus. Each dish was perfectly prepared and served in an elegant style.
The Orfilia has everything you would expect in a world class hotel and much much more. We look forward to our return.

Trip advisor on line helped inform my choice of Hotel Orfila which we booked five months in advance of our stay. Located in a quiet neighborhood, close to the Plaza Colon, the hotel could not be better sited-- a short bus ride away from the major museums and shopping. The hotel is elegant, small, well maintained, and the staff most accommodating (making restaurant recommendations and reservations, storing some of our luggage while we visited Ronda and Toledo for a few days, organizing taxis, etc.). Breakfasts were delicious as was the one dinner we had, our final night. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for its charm, elegance, character, convenience, and alert and gracious staff.

Room Tip: We requested and were granted a room with a garden viiew in back. It was quiet and lovely.

I carefully research my hotel choices before I book, so a hotel usually does not surprise me very much, either positively or negatively. The Orfila did surprise me. . . service at this hotel during my 5 day stay has been super. Just the right mix of personal, friendly, formal, but always capable.

We stayed one night in this very comfortable hotel which is centrally located in the city of Madrid. Our room was large, comfortable and very quiet. The staff in general were excellent.
Room prices are quite expensive and in general do not include breakfast. I'd suggest taking breakfast in a nearby cafe.

Room Tip: For the best deals, book 30 days in advance at the hotel's website

We have just spent 4 nights in the Hotel Orfila in Madrid. Apart from its great location within walking distance of the Prado and all the museums in that area, it is also close to the wonderful shopping streets of Calle de Serano and the smaller Spanish boutiques. However, the best thing about it, is its wonderful staff. Nothing was too much trouble - booking great tables at a moments notice, translating into spanish anything we needed to know, finding obscure shops that we had been told about in England and remembering exactly what each member of our party usually requested for breakfast. Our one free dinner which was part of the package, was the best food he had in Madrid. I could recommend it more highly. Harriet
