I am sad to leave this hotel! This morning I watched the sunrise from my bed! This place feels like home away from home. Gaby and Toby made my stay a pure delight. As soon as I arrived Gaby explained many things I should know about Granada, where to eat, how to be safe and places I should visit to... More

The room was very nice, clean and spacious. Also the location of the hotel was perfect, it was quiet but within 5 min you are in the city center! The hosts were great, they helped us with organizing shuttles and provided us with information! It is definetly worth staying in this hotel!

Stayed for only a night in a beautiful, clean and spacious room. The owners were amazing with their food and trip recommendations. Although we had reservations for another hotel for the next 2 days we came back each day and had all our trips and transpotation handled by them. Super friendly dogs chilling in the lounge. Fast internet and a... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Gaby was a wonderful hostess, and promptly responded to emails after we booked about arranging a driver from MGA airport to the hotel. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport - doesn't get any easier than that! Gaby also arranged for us to a tour of Las Isletas the... More

This was our last stop before we left Nicaragua and it sure was a great send off. Gavi was an amazing host and she was extremely helpful in setting up our Mombacho tour and Airport taxi along with great suggestions for restaurants and sight seeing. She definitely made us feel at home. The rooms were great and extremely clean. The... More

Gaby and her family were very welcoming and attentive. They provided tips on food and excursions and helped with logistics. They even escorted me on a tour of the Isletas! I chose Il Padrino because of its location near everything and the availability of a kitchen (also great restaurants and yoga nearby). It was very quiet in Granada and the... More

Clean easy and comfy. No a/c but not an issue. Rooms have locking cabinets and fans. See the photos for more info. Gaby is awesome, perfect hostess and speaks English. I would stay again and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Granada...

Il Padrino is an excellent choice for anyone who looks for big, airy and spacious rooms and great value for money. Staff is very helpful yet thoughtful (and not pushy) who made our stay not only pleasant and memorable, but we felt we are staying among friends, really. Would highly recommend to any smart traveller.

Quaint, beautifully decorated with Toby's art, a couple blocks to the best restaurants. Gaby is a wonderful host who gave us fabulous recommendations for restaurants and day trips. Her warm engaging personality made our Granada visit extra special.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A family-run hotel, in the centre of Granada, close to the main entertainment area in a very secure part of town. The rooms are located at the back of the building overlooking a tropical garden (an ongoing project). The hotel is across the street of a fitness centre, free for our guests. Nearly all Granada's main attractions are within easy walking distance. We can arrange transport to and from the hotel from anywhere in Nicaragua at very reasonable rates. ... more   less
