This is our second stay at IL Pardrino during our 7 weeks in Nicaragua. It was the first place and the last before our journey home.

Gabi and her Mom are such friendly and warm people you can't help think you are visiting friends. Very helpful. The rooms are spotless and modern. They all have artwork hanging very boldly above the beds that are phenomenal. All done by Toby, Gabi's husband. I would have loved to have bought one if he sold them. He is extremely...

The highlight of this place, hands down, is Gaby, the host and owner, and her family if they happen to be there. She is super friendly, speaks fluent English and has great tips on where to eat, what to see, etc. Next highlight is the breakfast, which has fruits and eggs and coffee - everything you need to start the...

This hotel was such a pleasure to visit, with the great staff (Gabi and her mom) and their kind dogs (Milan and Sisa). The location is perfect, being situated in the street of great restaurants, bars and bookshops, connecting to the "tourist street". The rooms are elegant, there is hot water in the shower, Gabi is fluent in English, and...

Our three nights in Granada were spent in this ideally located hotel. Our room was a good size, overlooking the garden. Lovely breakfast of fruit, eggs and rolls each morning with the option of rice and beans as well. The room had a ceiling fan which we made good use of. Gaby was very helpful, taking us out one night...

I had the Queen's room and although there were millions of mosquitos, the room was adequate. The kitchen facilities were available indoors and out of doors. They were accommodating to my many requests. Transportation person was the bright spot.

Il Padrino is a beautiful colonial house turned in to a small hotel. The room we stayed in, number 6, was very comfortable and clean with a huge bathroom! Gaby, the hostess, is incredibly friendly and helpful and is always there to wish you a good day and give you advice on what to do in Granada. The family atmosphere...

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
