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+... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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.
