Attractions near the Relais & Chateaux Hotel Orfila
Eat like a Spaniard in Chueca
It’s almost a rite of passage to experience the unique dining style that is Spanish tapas, and just a short walk from your hotel is where you can find the perfect place to enjoy it. The lively neighbourhood of Chueca never seems to sleep. From the hip clothing boutiques to the arty streets and unique little bars and eateries, this district is your best bet for authentic tapas. Just ask the locals who flock to this area when the sun starts to go down.
Try La Tita Rivera for some unbelievably cheap and delicious tapas, where they’re known for serving up favourites like croquettes and Spanish omelettes, as well as having refreshing beers on tap.
Discover Madrid’s green heart
The city of Madrid is all systems go and hustle and bustle, which is why many locals take time out in places like Parque de Retiro to recharge their batteries. It’s just 15 minutes’ walk from your hotel to this relaxed green oasis, where 140 hectares of manicured gardens, perfect lawns, huge fountains and lakes, as well as cafes and endless picnic spots await.
Even though simply soaking up the sun on a picnic rug is tempting, don’t forget to explore as well. The centre of the park is where you can find the stunning Palacio de Cristal (Crystal Palace). Bearing more resemblance to a greenhouse than a palace, this building constructed almost entirely of glass is used to house exotic plants.
