Owners Gaby and Toby went above and beyond to make our stay successful. From the friendly greeting when we first arrived, to accommodating our late-arriving family member at short notice, to Gaby's offer to drop off an item we left behind, to Toby's willingness to drive us to San Jorge when the driver they arranged for us didn't show up,...

Friendly, quiet for sleeping, great location. As meentioned by others Gaby is a great host and goes out of her way to arrange things. Airport pickup, day out/taxi service and other details were all arranged seamlessly. Would be good to have breakfast (although it says it's not available there is a cafe style area in front which isn't open)

I just recently returned from one of many visits to Il Padrino. I've been going there since 2011, so it's kind of become my home away from home. Gaby and Toby, the couple that run the hotel, are delightful! Gaby has gone out of her way to help me on several occasions. She has given me a ride to the...

I could spend the entire review talking about it's amenities such as their 5 star immaculate rooms, central location, strong wifi, have I mentioned the 5 star immaculate rooms, etc. But you can get that from the Trip Advisory site. What you can't get is my experience which I will always treasure. The hotel is run by Toby & Gabby...

Our stay at Il Padrino was fantastic. The hotel is very cute, rooms are clean and it is located very centrally in town. However, what really makes Il Padrino special is Gabby who runs the show there. She was incredibly helpful, friendly and just goes above and beyond for her guests. I would highly recommend staying here during your visit...

Great location, very fair price, clean, and the owners are as warm and helpful as can be. We spent our first night in Nica here and it couldn't have been a nicer introduction to the country. Gaby gave us perfect options for restaurants (La Garaje is amazing!! And yes, the veggies are safe to eat) and was willing to help....

I recently stayed at Il Padrino Hotel for 4 days and I must say that it was a heavenly experience. The hotel itself has nice rooms with giant fans and a beautiful bamboo ceiling. It is located downtown Granada and is about a 3 min walk to the main street. Best of all the owners are absolutely outstanding and most...

Just a five minute walk from the center of everything this hotel was quiet, clean, good value for money and picturesque. Gaby and the cat and dogs were welcoming when we arrived and during our stay. We actually arrived late night after a late flight, probably after midnight and we slept well on the comfortable bed. Gaby had arranged a...

Il Padrino is a comfortable and clean place to stay in a central Granada location. The room and the common areas were both lovely. For sure, the best part of our stay at Il Padrino was the owners' effort to help us make the most of our time in Granada. We only had one night in Granada, and arrived in...

We loved our stay here & the Dalmatians are so cute!!! The rooms were very clean & nice! The only thing to be aware of is no AC and the water pressure during the day isn't very strong! But if you're aware of that, shouldn't be an issue!! We loved our stay! They were very helpful with traveling plans as...

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
