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.

El Jardin de Orfila - Breakfast buffet and à la carte lunch and dinner are served in this bright room, decorated in yellow and caramel. There are just 20 covers, all much in demand. The cuisine is Spanish Mediterranean and international. Suckling pig in pear cream is the specialty. In summer, guests can dine al fresco for a candlelit evening meal.

Tea room - Located at the far end and to the right of the lobby, this offers direct access to the courtyard garden. Snacks and drinks are served here all day but it is particularly popular for afternoon tea and pastries. It also hosts private lunches and dinners.

The Bar - Located to the right of the lobby, this intimate area is decorated with green fabric-covered banquettes, 19th-century chairs and bold English maroon and green-striped wallpaper. The cocktails served here from midday until late are renowned. The fruity red Agnes Sorel wine is the specialty of the house.
