Hotel Amenities

Relais & Châteaux Hotel Orfila rests next to the scenic Plaza de Colón, less than 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza, and Reina Sofía museums. Spend the afternoon strolling neraby Parque de El Retiro, or visit the world-famous Plaza Mayor, all only minutes from the front door.

The Relais & Châteaux Hotel Orfila's meeting room is located downstairs from the lobby, past an original painting of a pastoral scene by Luculo (an art restorer at the Prado). The eaves of the roof are glass, allowing natural light to enter from the courtyard garden. There is a capacity for up to 90 people, and audio-visual equipment is available. Wireless Internet access is complimentary in public areas. In spite of modern amenities, all furniture is 19th-century.

The 2-level courtyard garden bursts into blossom in summer with yellow, sweet-scented mimosa. Mandarin trees flourish until late autumn and bay trees keep the garden green year round. At the end of the garden, the wall is painted with a trompe l'oeil landscape mural by Luculo.
