Great Hotel
Very pleased with my stay here. A really beautiful lobby with a high end feel. Very discreet and classy. My room was large and impressive. The bar was wonderful, however the staff were overstretched as they were working between the bar and the dining room. One annoyance was I ordered a club sandwich, and they put truffle sauce on it - something I can't stand!

It makes sense to spend the extra cents.
In every respect, this hotel is the place to stay when you’re in Madrid. For us it ticked the boxes that we needed. Non-smoking, WiFi and secure free parking, but it ended up being so much more. t’s like a family hotel. The rooms are large and relatively sound proof. The bed is large and comfortable and there is a pillow menu which I find important. We were invited to go downstairs for a welcome drink of Cava and we also had a small Madridian (!) sweet delicacy waiting for us in our room. We decided to stay an extra couple of days!! It’s close enough to all the main places to see if you’re happy for a good walk, but if you prefer a taxi, they will get you one easily and you will be where you need to be within minutes. The breakfast is excellent, the staff serving are so friendly and helpful and though we tried our limited Spanish, their English is excellent. This hotel was well worth the extra cost.

Dream Hotel
Hotel Orfila made our vacation 5 stars + on all levels. The staff treated us like family and even ran to the store when we asked for a specialty item for breakfast! Every staff member was outstanding. Rooms were beautiful, comfortable and elegant. This rates as one of our top hotels in the world and that after travelling for over 50 years. If you want great concierge service or just want to be treated like a king STAY HERE!
