What a great place to stay. Close to the Parke Central, restaurants, and the historic district. Located on a quiet side street, this inn really felt like home after a couple of days. We chose to stay at one hotel in Granada while we took our week of Spanish classes and so glad we chose this one. Owners Gaby and... More

Two mischievous Dalmatians, open court yards, hotess Gaby who couldn't have been more helpful, comfy rooms, conveniently located, all the best of Granada here. Restaurants, cathedrals, central park, all within easy walking distance.

We are so grateful to Toby and Gaby for all their help, advice and hospitality. This amazing young couple run the Il Padrino guesthouse by themselves, a busy accommodation in hip and happening Granada. On a sleepy Sunday afternoon we missed a bus connection onward to our next destination on the Pacific Coast and these guys offered to drive us... More

Il Padrino was a great place to stay in Granada. It's been thoughtfully constructed, and has a lovely central garden and beautiful rooms. Gaby & Toby were great hosts!! They went out of their way to help us out when we missed our bus to Rivas and we really appreciated they effort they made! It was a treat to stay... More

Spent 3 nights at ll Padrino as a solo traveler. Gaby was extremely helpful through out my stay. She arranged for Oscar to pick me up at the airport late night and drop me off in a timely fashion. My first day in Granada I spent touring the city and Isletas. The hotel is within perfect walking distance to everything... More

My husband and I just got married in Granada on January 28th. We stayed at Il Padrino and I couldn't be more grateful for his choice in hotels. From the time Oscar picked us up at the airport (with a bouquet of flowers for me) until the day of our wedding, our stay was fantastic. Gaby and Toby were more... More

We started and ended our trip to Nicaragua in Grenada, starting with one night in Il Padrino, and ending with one night a hotel just a few blocks away that cost just 6 dollars more per person. Il Padrino was stuffy (no AC) and while the ceiling fans were strong, our night of sleep was uncomfortable. The people who run... More

No AC just does not work for me in Granada. The place is clean and well built and attractive, it just too hot to sleep. No breakfast included, but that's not the big deal. The location is good, if you like Granada.

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. This was an incredibly clean hotel and very comfortable. However, the person who made this place amazing was Gaby. She was so incredibly helpful throughout our entire trip and made great recommendations on places to eat, tours to take, and she also helped book a taxi for us when... More
