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... More

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... More

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.

We spent a couple of nights in this lovely place, few weeks after our daughter advised us to go. We had travelled for 3 weeks through Argentine and Uruguay and spent the last nights in Capullo. The location is perfect, the place is clean, well maintained, breakfast great, price is reasonable and most of all: the owners were lovely, brought... More

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
