Get spoiled... very spoiled

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Hotel Orfila is Madrid’s only member of luxurious Relais & Chateaux chain. It is located in an historic building that once used to be a theater.
From the moment you walk through the entrance door, which used to be an entrance for carriages, you will notice that everything is shiny and spotless, carefully decorated and neatly designed. It is said that all the furniture and decorations were meticulously chosen in the best auction houses of Europe.
The hotel is located close to Plaza Colon with its huge statue of Colombus. There are plenty of nice restaurants in the area and even one brewery-restaurant. Metro station is just around the corner, and a 10 minutes walk would take you to the very heart of Madrid - - Sol.

Unique Quality: The rooms were huge and, again, sparkling clean. All the furniture reminded me of a museum; only the huge plasma screen took me back to reality of modern times.
The bathroom was bright with very light burgundy color marble. There was a huge mirror, two sinks with gold-colored faucets, and a bath tub size jacuzzi, the toilet was located in a separate room inside the bathroom.
The view from my room was to a backyard where white chairs and tables nicely arranged on a dining terrace. And every evening, after 8 pm, in the window of the building across from the backyard I could see salsa lessons given to a group of 10-12 people. I stayed at the other for 3 nights, and every night I went to bed to the sounds of salsa music.
Although it was February and very cold outside, the room was crazy hot. The heating system at the hotel didn’t have mercy and kept the air hot, dry, and suffocating. This is why I kept my window open. And although the hotel located in one of the most fashionable areas of the busy city it still occupies one of its quietest corners, so keeping a window open all night long wouldn’t bother hotel's guests.
In a nutshell, God bless business trips and companies that pay for such chic hotels.

Directions: Metro Station "Alonso Martinez"

Chic hotel in the center of Madrid

I know what you might be thinking... why would I go to a hotel in the city I live in? Well, recently my dear friend Nathalie came to Spain for business for a few days, and she stayed at this hotel, and on Friday after going out in town I decided to stay there with her as well!
The hotel itself is very nice, everything looks spotless! The rooms are quite big, with nice comfortable beds. Also the bathroom is very nice with a jacuzzi type of bathtub. You will have everything you need. Of course this comes with a price, and it's probably not the most affordable hotel in Madrid. However if you're looking for top quality this will be the hotel for you!

Directions: The calle Orfila is a parallel street to the calle Genova, very close to the Alonso Martínez Metro Station, and a 5 minute walk from the Plaza Colón.
