This is our first tripadvisor review despite years of using it as a travel resource. Posada Tambuca is the inspiration we needed to start giving back to the travel community. Let me preface this review with a little background information. We are a 35 year young couple who travel extensively. In the past 5 years alone we have been to... More

I stayed there few days on and off (always when I returned to Quito). There kindness is amazing. It is nice because it is a family run hostel and the family also is living there so you get the first hand experince with local people. You can even have a tour with them to different places (Quito, Otavalo) and they... More

Carlos, Yolanda and Carlitos treated my friend and I like family during our stay. You're essentially staying in their home and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and get you what you need. The homemade breakfast every morning with fresh juices, eggs, pastries, and more was an excellent personalized touch. The rooms are basic but... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, switching from a very large America style hotel to economize after our group tour ended. This was a very different experience. We felt like we were in a home instead of a large institution. We had a lovely room with a private bath. The room was of average size. The hot water was very... More

The family run business is a great place to stay. It is clean, quiet, hot water with descent water pressure and great breakfast is included with your stay. What sets this place apart is the fact that the family is so amazingly nice and accommodating. They are willing to help in any way they can and are ways a pleasure... More

I stayed in a room with one other person, it had a private bath and two beds. The rooms were cleaned and freshened up for us daily. The rooms are very simple but they are clean and do the job for the price. Wifi was very strong! The family that runs this place is incredibly sweet and kind. As other... More

My wife and I travel a LOT internationally. And I write a lot of reviews. For our trip to Ecuador we needed a place to stay in Quito for our arrival night. Our flight arrived very late in the evening (near midnight by the time we cleared airport immigration.) It takes about an hour to get to Quito form the... More

Probably the most adequate slogan I ever found to define an accommodation! Close to the reception, there is a map of Quito, the huge city (57 kms long and 9 kms wide) on the wall, and over it we can find the slogan written. It’s not false marketing, it’s really the way we feel, overwhelmed with the kindness of Carlos... More

Although our stay wasn't long enough, as we were traveling around the country, the time we spent there was perfect. The location is great, and the room/bathroom was immaculate and comfortable. Carlos is a prince of a man. He did our airport transfers (4 of them), was always early and dependable and a very safe driver in a crowded city.... More

Tambuca is your home whilst you stay and it is exactly that, a beautiful families home that's being shared with you. In a home you don't have a bathroom in your room. You tend to hear other guests. You have use of the kitchen and facilities. Tambuca is all those things. It definitely has it's positives and negatives but as... More
