We stayed here on two separate occasions during our visit to Ecuador. Carlos & his wife Yolanda are super nice people. There's a bit of a language barrier, so most of the dialogue was through their son Carlos jr. The hotel is a converted house with very basic rooms. We had the Large room on the main floor. Great breakfast... More

Posada Tambuca was a delightful residence. We arrived later than expected and our taxi had a little difficulty finding the location, but they had kept the lights on for us. The room and bathroom were very comfortable and cozy. Breakfast in the morning was tasty, and the cafe con leche was delicious. The beds are more firm than I prefer,... More

You can even walk to Old Town from here. It's clean, hot water great included breakfast. The coffee is the best! If you need a ride to the airport their... More

This is a very comfortable clean guest home with a lovely family running it well. I felt well-cared for and cared about.I got an airport pickup and then dropoff ($30 each way which I think was very comforting and a good price.) I'd be happy too stay here again. In fact I did come back here on return to Quito.... More

I stayed here twice while visiting Quito. Yolanda & Carlos took care of all the extra details to make a stranger feel welcome. You can arrange transportation to and from the airport and to the bus stations. The location in the Mariscal is convenient to good restaurants and public transportation to many parts of Quito

My daughter and I spent 5 nights here and it was just perfect for our needs. Our room was comfortable and quiet, upstairs with a private bath. Wifi worked very well. The breakfast is very good with eggs, fruit, bread, and juice. There is tea available in the kitchen any time and plenty of boiled water. The owners Yolanda and... More

Posada Tambuca is a real gem!! We were expecting a very plain, basic room and although the room was not fancy, it was clean, had a private bathroom, and was perfectly adequate. The owner/hostess, Yolande, is warm and welcoming, as is her son and main helper, Carlos. (husband, also Carlos was home for the weekend). They all gave very helpful... More

Wifi worked well in the bedrooms. Shared baths were clean and plentiful. One of our bedrooms had a private bath. Breakfasts are cooked to order and delicious. Airport transport offered.

After I was robbed my first night in Quito (leaving Plaza Foch at about 9:45 pm), Yolanda and Carlos helped to salvage my time in Quito. They lent me cash while I waited for my new ATM card to arrive and even suggested that I take a short 2 day trip to Los Banos, so I could optimise my time... More

Very hospitable - Yolanda and Carlos don't speak much English but they go above and beyond. The rooms are clean, the breakfast plentiful, hot water showers, don't put paper in the toilets. Carlos drove us to the equator (waited for us to do both tours and pictures, then to El Panecillo, then the bus station, made sure we got on... More
