After a long bus journey from CR and a long dusty and hot wait at the border I was delighted to arrive at this small Hotel, have a fresh shower and a comfortable bed with crisp white sheets. From the moment I made the reservation I had a good feeling about this Hotel and I was not disappointed. A small,... More

My stay at Il Padrino hotel was wonderful. The family was very welcoming and were always available to help. The rooms were cozy and clean. The hotel was also very well located, close to all the best attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Granada.

My first visit to this beautiful city and IL Padrino was the perfect compliment. I couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy the city of Granada. The beautiful garden was constantly filled with numerous birds of various species-music to my ears. As an added treat their small but delicious dinner menu along with tasty desserts didn't disappoint. I... More

We had a nice two night stay at Il Padrino. The hotel is in a great location a few streets away from the main Calle de la Calzada and the Central Park but not close enough to hear all the noise in the evening. The rooms are set out surrounding a leafy courtyard and are clean and comfortable. Fan kept... More

WOW!! This was my first time to Granada, travailing with my kids (young adults) and a friend. I was extremely pleased with Il Padrino and Gabby was so helpful and pleasant. I had the opportunity to spend some time talking with Toby and commend him on this venture. The blue of the exterior facade of the hotel stands out and... More

I have eaten dinner several times at this new restaurant within the hotel and it was consistently excellent. Chef Stephen has been trained in the US and has had experience in Europe, United States and Central America to name a few. The cuisine is international and the menu is changed every two weeks to bring diversity to their guests. I... More

Il Padrino is perfectly located to explore Granada - it's just 2 or 3 blocks from the central park and cathedral, but is still super quiet. Everything in Granada is well within walking distance, but just spend a few moments chatting to the highly knowledgeable Gaby - she knows nearly everything (and everyone) in Granada and is certain to be...

Steve is the executive chef and hales from New York by way of many exotic destinations. Our dinner was fantastic featuring some of the best pork barbecue that I've ever had in spite of having lived in the BBQ capitol's of the US. The most amazing thing was Chef Steve's phenomenal chocolate mousse. The only words to describe this amazing... More
