We ( my brother and I) stayed a total of 4 nights in february 2013. Carlos sr, picked us up at the airport. We were welcomed by Yolanda and we felt at home immediately. The whole family is so nice and helpfull. Carlos brought us back to the airport a few days later, very early in the morning to catch... More

I arrived to quito at some crazy hour of the morning and the owners son met me at the airport which was really nice and comforting. Although there was nothing wrong with this place, it really lacked any atmosphere or vibe. There are no common areas where you can relax and chat with others about their travel or things to... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our South America adventure. We arrived late at night but Yolanda quickly answered the gate and showed us to our rooms, gave us drinking water and made sure we were comfortable. Her and her husband Carlos were amazing to us. We speak zero Spanish but you still... More

I never write reviews but I had such a nice stay at Tambuca I had to spread the word about this hotel. The family is one of the nicest families you will ever meet. I had arranged with Yolanda to be picked up at the airport by her son Carlos.. But, I missed my flight! I thought for sure I... More

This is a good inn, at a good location in Quito. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Carlos knows enough English to answer your questions. There are good restaurants and shopping in the area. We stayed in two different rooms, and both of them were comfortable and quiet at night. We will stay there again when we return to... More

I want to start by saying that if I return to Quito, I wouldn't think twice about staying at Posada Tambuca again. My fella and I stayed there for two nights, left for the jungle for six days, and when we returned for four more nights at Tambuca, it was like being home again. Carlos and Yolanda are such sweet...

From airport pickup to late night drop the next day, Posada Tambuca was a great accommodation. Carlos was always around and eager to help us plan our outings. For US$38 we had a room with a bunk and a single with a shared bath next door. Excellent wifi connection! The common area is a great place to meet with fellow... More

Lovely stay in this beautifully maintained and colourfully decorated family-run hostel! It is located an easy walking distance to the historic city centre (25 minutes) as well as the newer 'La Mariscal' restaurant and hotel area (10 minutes). We also walked up to the base of the gondola from the hostel in about 45 minutes so it really is in... More

In total we spent 6 nights in this posada. The posada is located in Sucrs Mariscal, not far away from Mariscal Foch. The posada is clean and very well organised. Yolanda and Carlos take care of the posada. They made our stay feel like home. They prepare a wonderful breakfast and organise taxi transfers & co. Highly recommend this place.

This family run accommodation is just brilliant. Ecuador in one place. The whole family work together brilliantly to ensure that your stay in Quito is the best it can be! Nothing is too much trouble. My Spanish is atrocious and English is seldom heard used by the family, but communication is perfect. Thanks Yolanda, Carlos, Carlos - and the rest... More
