From check in at 2:30 am on a Sunday morning to checkout the following Sunday. Gabby was absolutely amazing to us. The hotel owner(Gabby) and her mother are truly gems! We were helped with everything including a visit to an English speaking Pharmacist when my friend got sick. There is not a single bad comment on this hotel and we... More

We traveled as a family of 5 without long term prebookings. Nonetheless, the owners of Il Padrino, a small family-run hotel, made us feel very welcome. They even arranged to pick us up from the border. Gaby and here mother were very warm and hospitable. Since our schedule was not preplanned much in advance, we much appreciated their efforts to...

Located only a few blocks from the Calzada, Il Padrino is a hotel with a personal touch. The owner, Gabby, is incredibly helpful and kind, as is her family (and her lovely dogs Milan and Caesar). My mother and her best friend stayed here while visiting me in Granada (I was living across the street, but spent a large amount... More

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
