“Safe, clean, excellent price and hosts.”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

I stayed here for one month (mid Nov-mid Dec 2011)The father and son, Stephen and Toby, who are the owners, are very helpful. I was running out of some prescription Eye drops and Steve took me to several Drug stores (I don't speak Spanish) to see if we could get the same or "equel" drops. I left som luggage in storage with them for 3 weeks I didn't wanted to bring with me to San Juan and Panama City.Instead of me taking a Taxi or Bus from Managua (that's where I am flying into) to Granada, (roughly 1 hour each way) to pick up my luggage, Steve has offered to bring it to the hotel I am checking in to tomorrow. How can you beat that?
The hotel is also very convenient located in a quite and safe area, yet it is only within 5 min. to walk to night clubs, restaurants, shopping, banks and the main park. I could go on but I think you got the picture.........................

Staying at Il Padrino was like staying with friends. Stephan and Toby were great hosts. They even invited us to the Christmas Eve dinner. They also have great pets! the rooms are really nice with ceiling fans that keep the room cool. Toby is also a great artist and his paintings are around the entire hotel. they were also great in helping us arrange transport around Granada. This was terrific value for money. We would go there again just so we can hang out with the hosts. It is also a very short walk to the main square and attractions.

Stephen and his son Toby (owners) helped us with directions and hiring a taxi at a lower than advertised rate from Managua to Granada before we even stayed at the hotel! The hotel is beautiful and they take very good care of the garden! It is very clean, and they even had our room ready at 9am! We didn't eat here but whatever Stephen was cooking smelt really really good! And Toby makes great coffee! Great find and a Granada gem!

I stayed here early November 2011. Excellent location for walking the city but in a quiet area. Son of owner (in charge at time of visit) was really helpful and made everybody feel welcome. My first visit to Nicaragua so did not know what to expect. Brilliant value!

Room Tip: All rooms excellent....in process of renovating in one area when I visited.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was perfect. The room was really spacious, bathroom good and fan brilliant! Stephen and Toby were brilliant hosts - really helpful, going out of their way to help us with all our plans and really informative about the local area and all it offers for tourists. The hotel is located in perfect place, short stroll to the centre and close to some lovely places to eat, particularly the Garden Cafe. The area was safe and hotel lovely and clean. Would definitely stay again if we are to return to Granada.

Wonderful father and son hosts will make your stay in Granada. This hotel is in a great part of town. The rooms are sophisticated at great value. A cleaner comes every day and when we were here (for a week in November) she did our laundry for us at a very reasonable price. The owner, Stephen, was taking a trip to his friends house on the coast the weekend we were due to leave so he took us with him on an unforgetable adventure and dropped us at San Juan del Sur the next day. He was a fantastically warm and accommodating host who really went above and beyond. Don't miss Il Padrino.
