We recently stayed at this excellent small hotel for five days. It is situated on a quiet street within walking distance of Madrid's main cultural venues, excellent restaurants (including Michelin starred) and fine shopping streets. The hotel is elegantly furnished with genuine antiques and fine art. However, the best thing about the Orfila is the staff. Everyone was helpful, usually...

5-star luxury in a small hotel setting. Hotel is located in a quite, secure neighborhood, just steps from the Colon Plaza and the major artery of the city, Paseo de la Castellana. Beautifully decorated in traditional style. Jr. Suite contained amazing antiques, and very roomy. Service level and friendly staff made me feel like I was coming home! I highly...

This hotel is beautifully appointed. Marcos, Carlos and the rest of the staff were wonderful and offered great recommendations and secured reservations for my family. The hotel is in the perfect location. Walkable to everything and located on a quiet side street. If we're lucky enough to return to Madrid we would definitely stay here again. Simply exquisite!

The Hotel Orfila is superb! The hotel is located on a quiet street right in the center of downtown Madrid which is convenient to sightseeing, museums, parks, and restaurants.

I stayed at the Hotel Orfila in early March for a multi-lingual wedding. From the evening foot gel and weather forecast left on the bed to the staff bringing up scissors and ironing boards at 11.30pm, it was the staff who made the wedding so very special - including the many languages they spoke to the various guests. The food...

We originally planned several days in Madrid, but had to cut back to just one night. After our wonderful experience at Hotel Orfila and the surrounding neighborhood, we will be back! Literally every staff member was amazingly cheerful and helpful, from the front door to the front desk and in the dining room. The hotel is a wonderful boutique hotel...

The room was gorgeous; the service excellent. One of the best hotels in which we have ever stayed, it made our time in Madrid most pleasant. We are already planning another trip to Madrid, sometime in the not too far distant future so we expect to return.

Hotel Orfila was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The building, rooms, decorations, food, and staff are all top line. In addition to the main points, little attention to detail made the experience unforgettable (a glass of cava while check in and bags are handled; booking taxi after we mentioned when we needed to be at the airport, fresh...

Orfila is a small, boutique hotel in a lovely and quiet residential neighborhood, yet it is a block and a half from the Alonso Martinez Metro stop. An old palace on a one-block street so hidden that our cab driver had to look it up on GPS. The staff is universally friendly, kind, and helpful...especially Jose Martin, the daytime front...

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Chamberi
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.
