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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

I have eaten dinner several times at this new restaurant within the hotel and it was consistently excellent. Chef Stephen has been trained in the US and has had experience in Europe, United States and Central America to name a few. The cuisine is international and the menu is changed every two weeks to bring diversity to their guests. I...

Il Padrino is perfectly located to explore Granada - it's just 2 or 3 blocks from the central park and cathedral, but is still super quiet. Everything in Granada is well within walking distance, but just spend a few moments chatting to the highly knowledgeable Gaby - she knows nearly everything (and everyone) in Granada and is certain to be...

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
