view web site ›'s insider take:

This classically styled Relais & Châteaux boutique hotel in an 1880s mansion, located in a quiet residential area near Colon Square, has a relentless dedication to serving the needs of those who wish the modern-design revolution had never taken place, that all the minimalist Deco lamps, rock sculptures, and recessed lighting fixtures would be ritually burned in a big bonfire, and that hotels would return to an age of ornate ballrooms full of crystal and flowers. The Orfila opened in the late 1990s, but even its gaudy gilded-wreath logo hearkens back to an earlier age. No expense has been spared on materials, maintenance, or service. The 32 plush rooms (12 of which are suites) come in tasteful stripes, low-key florals and with époque furniture. The restaurant, El Jardín de Orfila, caters to an older crowd and keeps with the classic theme: They wouldn't even think of placing your bottle of wine on the table, or of allowing you to manage your own napkin.
