We stayed here for two nights last April and had a wonderful time. It was a rather rainy couple of days, so Colonia and El Capullo were not very busy. The hotel kindly offered us a room upgrade, which was wonderful. The rooms are pretty fancy, more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. The pool looked lovely, but we...

This was our first time back to Colonia after a few years and so wanted to stay at El Capullo, which years ago, was the first place we stayed (in fact, this year unexpectedly we ended up in the same room as that first time, which was a nice surprise). The visit this year, was the first with the new...

The location is really great, room are spacious and the house beautiful. The garden/swimming pool area is a real plus, with laying chairs and sofas. Everything was just fantastic! I would definitely return there.

Stayed here for two nights on my arrival in Colonia. It has a wonderful quiet location right in the old town with everything in easy walking distance. The street is tree lined giving great shade from the sun. My room overlooked the garden/pool to the rear in the first floor. Modern clean and well maintained with mini bar, tv, safe...

Thank you for your comments Robert! We are glad that your stay at our Inn has been enjoyed. Our staff has not been able to clean your room since at the time you were inside it. We are sorry that you did not mention this aspect to us, we would have solved it. Our breakfast is local, so we do...

The title tells you the best part as the posada is a half block from the church plaza and perhaps three blocks from the Rio Plata. It does have a gated car park which is entered from a different street. The place has a small green water pool (didn't ask why it was green and not blue or clear) and...

Thank you very much for your detailed comments. And although I would like to apologize for your perception, I also have to point out that in 90% of cases our cleaning is a reason for congratulation by our guests. We have a total of 14 rooms, each with a detailed description of its details and its location in the building,...

After travelling for years and visiting many nations, the elements that make a delightful stay can't be rated by stars (ie. 5, 4, 3 ...). Rather, it's about how the management and staff just get all the variables to flow so that the stay is super enjoyable. El Capullo is in this 'excellent' category. It's by no means a 6+...

Booked here for one night and the place was absolutely fine for one night. Staff friendly and fairly efficient albeit breakfast was on a suply only when necessary basis. The real downside was the fact that standard rooms do not have windows and many open out directly into the breakfast room and reception areas. If you book here go for...

It was a bit too chilly to swim in the pool. Though during the day we did lounge by the pool and basked in the sun as we listened to the hotels fine tunes - I'm talking REM, the shins, all the mellow hits of my youth! The staff are incredibly kind, hospitable and friendly. One more we had an...

El Capullo has a lovely, peaceful garden and great location in the old town of Colonia. We did, however, have a less than wonderful stay. Obviously, guests' first impression of a hotel is through the front desk. At El Capullo, the woman at the desk was perversely unfriendly. I found I had made a mistake on the dates of our...
