Posada Tambuca, the familia Yolanda and Carlos, are just the best in Quito. Rooms very clean, great breakfast, perfectly located and hosts who let you feel to be at home. They help you with everything. We as a family with a small child just enjoyed our one week stay and we will come back for sure. Top!

This was my third time staying at Posada Tambuca in the Mariscal district of Quito and there have been even more improvements. Added rooms, bathrooms, and a larger kitchen. But even with the improvements, Yolanda and Carlitos are still the BEST! Still that homey charm, they still take care of each guest as if they are the only ones there,... More

Great Place in Quito, The rooms have all you need, and very nice beds. The bathrooms are only shared, but cleaner then most of the bathrooms I ever saw. Breakfast is also very very good, I think the best I had in Ecuador. And the best thing about this hotel are the hosts, they are very friendly and really help... More

Me and friend spend two nights at this hostel. Carlos picked us up from the airport and helped us get settled in. The following morning we were served a nice hot breakfast and provided with suggestions on things to do for the day. The other people we met at this hostel were also very nice and happy with the accommodations... More

We arrived in Quito and were picked up by Carlos - the son of the family. He's very good in english and we had a perfect conversation whilst driving to Quito. We stayed in Tambuca for almost two weeks and went back two times. Soon it felt like home for us. Carlos and Yolanda always were there for their guests.... More

Posada Tambuca justifies it's excellent placing amongst other hotels in Quito. My girlfriend and I stayed here on 2 occasions. On each occasion, the proprietress, Yolanda, welcomed us with a warmth of a close family member. The breakfasts are an upgrade to other reasonably priced hotels in South America, fresh fruit and good coffee being a highlight. There is a... More

We were warmly received at 5:30 a.m. after an overnight bus trip. We enjoyed coffee and a snack while our room was prepared. We slept and went back for a great breakfast. When we asked if we could hire a car to see Otavalo and Cotacachi Yolanda got Carlitos to take us north for the day. It was a great... More

We found this place on trip advisor and as we drove by taxi into a sketchy seeming neighborhood in the dreary late afternoon drizzle i wondered if we had made a mistake. NO mistake...this place was first rate. It is a hostel type hotel with a large shared bathroom, excellent hot water, nice big rooms, extremely comfortable beds (best in... More
