My husband and I just got married in Granada on January 28th. We stayed at Il Padrino and I couldn't be more grateful for his choice in hotels. From the time Oscar picked us up at the airport (with a bouquet of flowers for me) until the day of our wedding, our stay was fantastic. Gaby and Toby were more...

We started and ended our trip to Nicaragua in Grenada, starting with one night in Il Padrino, and ending with one night a hotel just a few blocks away that cost just 6 dollars more per person. Il Padrino was stuffy (no AC) and while the ceiling fans were strong, our night of sleep was uncomfortable. The people who run...

No AC just does not work for me in Granada. The place is clean and well built and attractive, it just too hot to sleep. No breakfast included, but that's not the big deal. The location is good, if you like Granada.

My husband and I booked II Padrino as our first stop on our 2 week Nicaraguan vacation and boy was it the right choice!!

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. This was an incredibly clean hotel and very comfortable. However, the person who made this place amazing was Gaby. She was so incredibly helpful throughout our entire trip and made great recommendations on places to eat, tours to take, and she also helped book a taxi for us when...

We came to this hotel with little planned, and the staff was incredibly helpful. The girl running the desk helped us plan tours, dinners, and had a laundry list of other suggestions for us. Definitely recommend this place for her help alone!

I agree with other positive reviews of this place, but I give it five stars especially for Gaby and Toby. Gaby is your boots on the ground in Granada. Whatever you need, Gaby will take care of it for you. It's what she does. While we were there, my wife had a medical emergency. Gaby immediately prepared a briefing of...

We booked at Il Padrino for three nights just until we could find a more permanent accommodation for our five week stay in Granada. We were thankful it was only three nights. This place has potential. They arranged pickup for us from the border with Costa Rica, which was much appreciated after a stressful and tiring time crossing. We were...

Gaby and her parents went above and beyond to make my time in Granada interesting and welcoming. This was my first time in Nicaragua, and it couldn't have gone better. From rides to/from the airport, to local tours and coffee in the morning... it was the "homebase" I needed.

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
