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

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. On arrival we were greeted by Gaby who is a ray of sunshine. Her warm smile was so welcoming. The hotel is quiet and has a warm atmosphere. The rooms are surrounding a garden courtyard. We were additionally welcomed by Milan the resident Dalmatian puppy. Our room was private an in a... More

We spent a night at the Il Padrino last week, and all I can say is I wish we had stayed longer! Gaby checked us into a room in the back with a large bed and immaculately clean bathroom. After getting settled in we were informed that they were hosting a soft opening of their new restaurant that night, and... More

Great place to stay in Granada. Gaby was so very helpful, lining up tours and transportation to and from the Hotel. Our room was large and looked out to the garden. Good location. Easy to access to Plaza.

The hotel was nice and comfortable. Everything was clean and there was a nice laid back feel. The host was very friendly and even bought our dinner the first night, all of the staff was helpful as well. Good location we were able to easily walk to all of the attractions we wanted to see. The rates were very affordable... More
