Hotel Orfila is a beautiful hotel--old school classic charm and luxury. The service--especially Heathcliff--was first class. Rooms are comfortable and clean. We have stayed there twice and would return again.

This is an excellent hotel with flawless service. I give it an overall score of 4.8.The service is really flawless. From the bell boy, the door man, all the people working behind the counter, the cleaning ladies, and those working in the restaurant, and I think I probably encountered a dozen or so of these employees during my one-night stay, I report that the service was 11 out of 10.The hotel lobby is beautiful: classic and very nice. The rooms are nice but not perfect. There was some noises from the water pipe that kept me awake at night but otherwise the room was flawless.I had planned to go out to try a Spanish restaurant nearby but because I was a bit tired, I asked if there was a restaurant in the hotel only to be pleasantly surprised that the hotel restaurant has two Michelin stars! So I stayed and tried out the restaurant in the hotel. It was a great experience: the food, wine, and the service were all really great. Even the prices are, I thought, quite reasonable.I highly recommend this hotel, and commend a great job the hotel management has done in ensuring great service all around and in keeping the hotel in a good shape. The restaurant just adds to the experience.Oh, I forgot to mention that the location is also great: almost all of my meetings were within a 10-minute walking distance or at most a 10-minute cab ride.

Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for the first night of our honeymoon. The staff were incredibly accommodating even though we showed up hours in advance of check in. Everyone was so kind and the hotel was beautiful in every way. Can’t wait to go back next time we find ourselves in Madrid!! Thank you all!

It is almost one of the best hotels I have stayed in. First of all, the geographical environment is superior, and it is within walking distance from the city center. The interior environment of the hotel is very comfortable. Although it is not big, it is very exquisite. It is said that this hotel was the residence of a former nobleman. It can be seen that many of the furnishings should be collected. More importantly, the staff here are very professional, in addition to helping us book a taxi, they also helped us book several excellent restaurants, and all their recommendations were perfect! It was a very pleasant stay experience, and I strongly recommend it to everyone. This trip to Madrid left a very pleasant impression on me.
