We stayed here 3 nights in Madrid in November of 2016. After looking at many many hotels on trip advisor we decided on the Orfila and were not disappointed. The room was beautiful and big. Furniture in the room looked to antique or copies of classics. The room was clean. The staff was very helpful and always seemed happy to... More

This hotel is a gem. Small and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. A great place for weary travellers. I would highly recommend this hotel. The rooms are large with beautiful amenities and super clean. The staff are fantastic.

An intimate spot, away from the commotion of the central city but still very convenient to center no shopping areas. The staff went unusually out of their way to be helpful. Dinner at the restaurant epwas spectacular.

This hotel was worth the stay. The room was spacious the staff went above and beyond. We extended our stay an extra day just because they treated us with the utmost respect. I'd choose this hotel again and again. Worth the price for sure.

I love this hotel. Yes, it is an old building, and the rooms are not as big, but the service is amazing. The staff are ever so helpful and efficient (they all seem to enjoy their work very much). Breakfast quality is top notch. I would very much love to stay here again.

Very comfortable hotel, high level of friendly service, peaceful party of town, a little outside the central tourist area but still walking distance from all of the main sites of Madrid. Highly recommended. Its not cheap of course, but this level of quality and service cannot come cheap. The local area is more interesting than it appears at first, and... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood 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.

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.
