Orfila

Calle Orfila 6, Madrid, Madrid, 28010, Spain

Hidden away on a leafy little residential street not far from Plaza Colón, this elegant 1886 townhouse has every comfort of the larger five-star Madrid hotels, but in more intimate surroundings. Originally the local residence of the literary and aristocratic Gomez-Acebo family, the building is now in the hands of a private family whose presence can be felt in the classy flower arrangements in the lobby, the original furniture in every room (purchased from run-down French and English castles), and the collection of Loewe silk foulards framed and displayed in the rooms. The 32 rooms are carpeted and decorated in cream and ocher tones. There is also a great restaurant with a small garden (usually open Easter–October) which is superb for summer dining. The hotel has an agreement with a local gym, which guests can use for a fee.
