Location: Madrid, Spain.
My Experience: A pleasure to be back at Madrid’s only Relais & Châteaux hotel. It is probably the closest thing you get to a country hotel in Madrid with its garden and quiet feel. The location is amazing when you think about it. Great central location, but on a quiet street meaning you don’t have the high level of street noise that often comes with a central location in a city. The design is classical and old school which you find at many Relais & Châteaux-associated properties.
Relais & Châteaux is an organisation where high quality of food is one of the values. In fact, ‘cuisine’ is one of the 5C’s of the organisation. Orfila’s fine dining restaurant delivered again on a level comparable with Michelin-starred restaurants and the waiter from the Dominican Republic delivered great service. Service is generally great in this hotel, and I would also like to send compliments to housekeeping for a clean room and good service. Overall, Orfila is a great experience and one of the highest ranked properties in Madrid when it comes to guest satisfaction. If you, like me, enjoy Relais & Châteaux hotels, this is the ideal choice in Madrid.
Duration of Stay/Visit: One night.
My Opinion: Great experience.
