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...

Perfect location, waking distance to every important place in town and restaurants. It has a parking place, even thought town is quiet and safe, but if you are travelling it gives you the chance to keep everything in the car. Bedrooms are comfortable. Bathroom and some breakfast dishes were nos so clean. Rate is reasonable in this area, all around...

Great position close to everything. Very welcoming owners and staff. Nothing was too much trouble. A very good breakfast with home made breads, cakes and jams! The rooms were lovely.....we had a very small bathroom though. Spotlessly clean. It was good to be able to relax by the pool after wandering all round the cobbled streets of the town.
