Had an absolutely fantastic stay with Gaby & Toby at Il Padrino. The hotel is located in the heart of Granada, just a few blocks off the main street, so it's quiet and very central. Gaby greeted me when I arrived, made me feel at home straight away. Like an extended member of the family. The rooms are clean and... More

We loved our stay at Il Padrino! Gaby and Toby were so incredibly helpful throughout our stay and gave us great advice on how best to spend our time in and around Granada (tip: ask Gaby about the day trip to Hostel Paradiso on Lake Apoyo). The service we received at this hotel rivaled that of a five-star accommodation, and... More

This place has is designed like a classic Italian house and is very unique and beautiful. But that's not what I would like to focus on for my review. The couple that runs this place, Gaby and Toby, were probably the nicest and most helpful people we met during the entire trip. Both of them went out of their way... More

If you've traveled over the holdiays, you know hotels can book up quickly, and the hotels in Granada are no exception. We had our sights set on Casa del Agua, but were pleasantly surprised by our backup choice, Il Padrino. LOCATION & GROUNDS Location is unbeatable - across the street from the San Francisco Convent, a few short blocks away... More

This hotel is family run and truly feels like home. Gaby and Toby are gracious hosts that work to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. My boyfriend and I stayed for 12 days and enjoyed every single one. It's located a few blocks from the city center, and everything else (the market, churches, restaurants, banks) are easily... More

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights in December. The rooms we stayed in were clean (spotless), tidy and quite large. It was very tranquil setting except for when the rooster started up in the morning (who needs alarm clocks - lol). The hotel is a few minutes walk to the center of town... More

I didn't even have a chance to get a room at Il Padrino, but my friend did, so I stopped by and was treated like the best of guests. Gaby took the time to give us specific suggestions about traveling all throughout Nicaragua, and she also used her personal phone to call and book is rooms in hostels in two... More

A really nice hotel with one major downfall......there's no ventilation! Unfortunately, (as is the case with many hotels in this part of the world) the windows had no screens and the place was infested with mosquitoes. We had no A/C so we were forced to crank the fan in attempt to cool down. It made for a couple nights of... More
