I loved this hotel for its art and the way the rooms opened up onto the courtyard. It was clean and Toby and Gabriela were extremely hospitable to our group. We went on some tours and were not mislead with quotes as another review mentioned. Resident dog and cat were well behaved. This hotel is walking distance to everything!

Stayed here as part of a group of 6 and loved it! The staff were really friendly and the rooms were cosy and spotless, although WiFi is not available in rooms. The owners and staff were really friendly although we did enquire about tours and were quoted almost double from the owner then the tour company in the town...he told... More

My husband and I stayed here with a friend for three nights and were extremely pleased with the beautiful layout, impeccably clean rooms and the warmness of Toby and Gabriela. The hostel is beautifully constructed, with modern updates that conserve the colonial style and a beautiful garden in the courtyard characteristic of the Arabian influence. Though Granada is very warm,... More

We stayed at Hotel Il Padrino on two seperate occasions last month. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautiful and immaculate and the rooms modern, clean and comfortable. They had a TV and high powered ceiling fan. Our only complaint was that the rooms were extremely hot and stuffy despite the fans. The grounds were very... More

Toby, Gaby and Stephen were wonderful and helped us out a lot during our stay. We stayed in the main building and loved the layout, the rooms, and the overall relaxed vibe of the place. We felt very welcome, like it was like a chilled out oasis in the middle of the very busy town. The location is excellent, very... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. Toby Gabriella and Toby's dad are a great trio and will get you set up for your time in Granada. All renovations are complete and the pool is really wonderful on those oppressively hot Nicaraguan days. They do have to clean up some housekeeping items like being available when you arrive to check... More

Il Padrino is a series of buildings on one street that's very close to the square and tourist strip, and confusingly, although it was a perfectly adequate stay, it didn't hit my expectations: not for any particularly negative reasons, but because it appears to be more of a hostel than a hotel - perhaps a hostel converting itself to a...

I have travelled through most of the world for many years, at times for pleasure but mostly in pursuit of work for my small lighting company. Many times I was away for many months at a time. When the hotel was built, I asked myself what would have I liked to have found as a weary traveller. What I would... More

We had a very nice stay at ll Padrino. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and the garden was beautiful. The owner, Stephen and his son, Toby and Gaby were gracious hosts. Very willing to help us with anything we needed.

We stayed at Il Padrino for an extended weekend end January and we couldnt have made a better choice. It is just a couple of blocks away from the buzz of the happening places, which makes for a quiet sleep. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable and the hosts are very personable and helpful. An understated, tasteful gem... More
