Great location within the historic district about 6 blks from bus & ferry. Staff is friendly and efficient; many speak English. Rooms are clean and modern. Continental breakfast offers a great choice.

We stayed 2 nights at this beautiful hotel set in an old villa. The rooms and common areas are spotlessly clean and comfortable The bed and linen is amazing, pure luxury white cotton. The shower was hot and powerful and breakfast was a great selection. The only reason that I have not given this hotel 5 stars is that we... More

Wow! What to say. I went on a trip with Behind the Scenes Adventures and one of our stops was to Colonia, Uruguay. Our leader, Cynthia LeCount Samake had booked us into El Capullo. We arrived in early evening and were warmly greeted by owner, Tom. The rest of our stay was so fabulous. It felt like home. We hated... More

Our small textile group had such fun staying here--right in Old Town with many restaurants around,. The owners were wonderful to us--Wi-Fi and nice clean rooms with a super continental breakfast every morning. I would go back there in a second should I have a chance to visit Uruguay again. We had a fantastic time. Paulette Heilbrun

I stayed at El Capullo three nights with a small group of textile fanatics from the US. From our very first contact emails, the owner Tom was extremely helpful, not only with reservations related specifically to the hotel. He arranged a van for the group, and consistently recommended superb restaurants nearby in the historic town. He and his wife both... More

Nice converted and extended posada in quiet central location; lovely room overlooking beautiful, garden, good wifi, nice small pool, friendly English owner, good breakfast and good value at 120 US dollars a night. The safe was to high for me to reach, but that was the only problem.

We had a lovely 2 night stay at El Capullo. It is right in the historic area and just minutes walking distance to some great restaurants, museums and gorgeous sunsets. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! We were even able to rent bikes at the hotel for a very reasonable fee.
