Two mischievous Dalmatians, open court yards, hotess Gaby who couldn't have been more helpful, comfy rooms, conveniently located, all the best of Granada here. Restaurants, cathedrals, central park, all within easy walking distance.

We are so grateful to Toby and Gaby for all their help, advice and hospitality. This amazing young couple run the Il Padrino guesthouse by themselves, a busy accommodation in hip and happening Granada. On a sleepy Sunday afternoon we missed a bus connection onward to our next destination on the Pacific Coast and these guys offered to drive us...

Il Padrino was a great place to stay in Granada. It's been thoughtfully constructed, and has a lovely central garden and beautiful rooms. Gaby & Toby were great hosts!! They went out of their way to help us out when we missed our bus to Rivas and we really appreciated they effort they made! It was a treat to stay...

Spent 3 nights at ll Padrino as a solo traveler. Gaby was extremely helpful through out my stay. She arranged for Oscar to pick me up at the airport late night and drop me off in a timely fashion. My first day in Granada I spent touring the city and Isletas. The hotel is within perfect walking distance to everything...

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 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.

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!

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
