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. Mario Sandoval, 2 Michelin stars and executive chef of El Jardín de Orfila, delights diners with a gastronomic proposal based on recovering the tastes of traditional cuisine with the most avant-garde techniques and the care and selection of the best raw materials to ensure that each dish is exquisite, and each unique experience.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.

We have stayed at this opulent hotel quite a few times now and a number of the staff know our names. We also have our favourite rooms. The hotel is perfectly located on a quiet street in an upmarket area that is close to the Metro and within walkable distance from many tourist attractions. Also being very close to Chueca you have a mind-blowing choice of restaurants and bars plus countless boutique shops. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The staff cannot do enough to help you and most of them speak excellent English. The breakfast is lovely and in the warm weather you can dine in the secret garden at the rear. We always eat in the restaurant at least once during our stay and in my opinion the food is some of the best around and priced very fairly. I am already looking forward to a return visit.

Overall, a wonderful stay in a charming and cozy small hotel making feel at home, also thanks a warm welcoming and hospitality provided by a highly professional staff.
The building is located in the elegant , safe and very quiet Almagro district, where buildings facing clean ordinate and tree lined streets are uniformly of high standard of quality & maintenance.
The room was bright, spacious and comfortable, with a bow window overlooking a silent inner courtyard nicely decorated with wall paintings and fountain, completed with large sun umbrellas under which breakfast was served.
Minor details like a chipped tub, non-immaculate bathroom tiles and a few air-conditioning related noises would not distract from a 5-star level.
Parking is nicely included. We reached Madrid by airplane and, almost every relevant destination being within walking distance, we did not need a car.
However, it has to be noted that the parking access is 2.32 meters wide, so that just a small car or a very skilled driver would prevent damages.
A final note must praise the quality of the Jardin de Orfila restaurant, offering excellent food with a touch of refinement at a reasonable price in relation to its standard and other comparable alternatives.

This luxury boutique hotel is located in the upscale district of Chamberi, close to the luxury shopping district Salamanca, and walking distance to Retiro Park, and the Prada Museum. Apart from its accessible location, the atmosphere and decor of the hotel is superb, overflowing with old world glamour. The hotel restaurant Jardin d’Orfila serves a great breakfast buffet in an even better ambiance. The staff were friendly and attentive, helping us book train tickets, planning our travels, recommending museums, etc. We booked a superior triple room, but was upgraded to a junior suite for free by the hotel. The room was spacious and lofty, as it was located on the fifth floor in an “attic” like space. The bathroom included a walk in shower, double vanities, and a jetted bathtub. The hotel provided us with a mint foot mask, and chocolates to end our stay.
Hotel Orfila has made our stay in Madrid wonderful in every aspect, and we look forward to visiting again.

Our Superior Double room was the smallest Orfila offered but it was one of the largest we have had in Europe. Plenty of room for our infant crib and (too much) luggage. Well-decorated (traditional style), very clean and comfortable furnishings. The most impressive part was the service (Christopher in particular). Orfila set up a fantastic babysitter for us each night and assisted with reservations. Orfila is a great location as it is between the tourist areas (~20 minute walk or an easy Metro ride) and Salamanca (~5 minutes, where the best shopping/restaurants are).

We have been to this hotel quite a few times prior to Covid but this was our first time visiting since 2020. We had 10 nights in one of the same junior suites we have stayed in before. The room had been refurbished which was really nice, especially the new very large shower cubicle. The room was large and comfortable with a good size sitting area and was at the front of the hotel opening out onto Calle Orfila which is a quiet street. We had breakfast at the hotel at which you are given a huge choice of cold food at the buffet in addition to a large range of hot food if requested. The staff at reception are delightful as nothing is too much trouble for them. The only niggle we had was with regard to room replenishment - items such as milk and coffee pods were not always replaced which is mildly annoying but the guys at reception sorted things out. If you are looking for a small family run luxury hotel with attentive service in a fabulously convenient location then come here.

High praises for the lovely Hotel Orfila! The front desk staff could not have been more welcoming during my recent stays. They provided help and advice for my travels around Madrid. The restaurant team must also be commended for excellent breakfasts and dinners. The chef is quite talented, providing beautiful and delicious meals. This property is very well situated for shopping in Salamanca, or for visits to parks and museums.

This hotel is wonderful. We have stayed twice and will stay again. Emilio whom checked us in upgraded us to the most beautiful suite. The art work in the room is
very special and the furniture is of museum quality. The breakfast is the very finest and our waiter was so friendly, he told us of how his fellow classmate is working in Canada -extremely outgoing and helpful and fun and a joy. Terrific location for Retiro and many good restaurants and the Prado.

I would highly recommend staying at the Hotel Orfila. We recently visited Madrid and stayed at the Orfila because we have had great experiences at other Relais & Chateau properties and the Orfila lives up to our expectations. We loved the quiet and superb service and kindness from all the staff from the Carlos (the desk manager) to the staff at the hotel restaurant. Carlos and his colleagues helped us with making reservations not only in Madrid but Carlos took care of us with his recommendations in San Sebastian. We had an early train leaving Madrid and the restaurant staff ensured we had breakfast (already packed) for our 5 hour train ride. The Double Superior room was extremely comfortable and spacious for two people. The interiors were very tastefully appointed from the soothing color scheme to the furniture and the amenities (essential Nespresso and lovely teas as well as Alvarez Gomez Colonia-very Madrid!). Our reservations included breakfast which was excellent and convenient for our busy days. The Orfila was always the perfect and quiet place to return to after our fun-filled busy days walking and touring the great city of Madrid. Thank you Carlos and the entire staff for making our visit to Madrid very special. We plan on returning with our children!
