Read more about this Hotel

A small palace from the 19th century, situated in a residential area, exclusive and tranquil, in the cultural centre and of business of the city, which serves like a setting to a new concept of hotel business in Madrid.

The building was built in 1886 as the residence of a bourgeois family. In the era of the 20's, due to the strong literary and theatrical interest of the family, a theatre was set up in the small palace of Orfila 6, which made their performances famous among the society of Madrid of the moment.

There are just 33 rooms and suites, some facing the garden with traditional Spanish square bay windows, so with the drapes drawn back they are bright.

The standard and superior rooms are subdued, in shades of yellow or sage green colourways, with the woodwork picked out in darker tones, alongside soft red/pink or green fabrics, fabric bedheads, ceiling to floor curtains, good repro antiques, little wall lights and, in the small bathrooms, twin sinks. The pink/pale yellow combination is brightest and works best. The effect is fairly neutral and discreet, but without veering to the corporate. The 8 superior rooms have little seating areas while 4 of the 5 suites are more elegant with empire furnishings, real antiques and rich, swagged curtains over tall, double door windows.

The garret suite is less elegant. The top, 5th floor rooms have sloped ceilings in the eaves. The quiet leafy streets of this embassy district are like a morgue in mid-afternoon.

highly reputed places in town. It would be a pleasure for us to invite you to discover the Mediterranean cusine in a quiet and exclusive environment with a high standard of service which we are sure you will enjoy.

Besides enjoying the most delicious meals, together with an impeccable selection of the best wines, you will be able to have a drink in the garden of the small palace. "El Jardín de Orfila" is an oasis of peace, right in Madrid centre. We also offer you our English style bar, where you enjoy a select atmosphere and our best cocktails that our barman Fermín Román, winner the price "Chicote" for this cocktails, make with great mastery.
