El Capullo is a great find. The place is thoroughly well thought out, with attention to detail, style and charm. The rooms have everything you need: a comfortable bed, a good shower, a ceiling fan and air conditioning. The place is spotless and staff incredibly helpful. And, as if that weren't enough, there`s a beautiful garden,with lots of comfy chairs,...

We have stayed in Colonia many times in the past four years when we take mini-vacations away from Buenos Aires. El Capullo is new, spotlessly clean and in a great location. When you need a break, you can relax in the beautiful garden and pool area. Seek no further.

After a couple of weeks in BA, we needed to escape the big city. A friend recommended this place to us and we are very happy we followed up on it. Great style and location, nice hosts and the best breakfast you could ask for. The couple running the place were eager to please because it hasn´t been open that...

This hotel was a bit pricier than the ones we had been staying at but the central location, gorgeous rooms (especially the bathroom) and friendly very helpful English speaking owners made it worth every penny. The breakfast was a welcome change from the usual media lunas and over-brewed coffee we were used to, frutijja yogurt and cereal delicious! Will be...

Charming posada, very clean and friendly and helpful staff. Felt right at home, and in a great location in the historic part of Colonia del Sacremento.

We do not speak Spanish very well so staying at a place that is owned by an American/English couple was wonderful (they do speak Spanish). Loved the clean construction of the rooms and how they were decorated. El Capullo was a very comfortable place to stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely return.

Recently refurbished and opened, this is a little gem of a hotel in Colonia. The English and American husband and wife owners are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed with TV, Wi-fi and local decor. It has a rustic yet boutique appeal and the breakfast is delicious. I would highly recomment this establishment to everyone!
