I spent non-consecutive two nights here on a business trip. This is a great family-ran hotel with the nicest staff you will meet. For the cost and location it will be difficult to beat. I stayed in shared bathroom room and was initially nervous about the shared bathroom, however the bathroom was very clean. I will definitely stay here again.

Posada Tambuca is a great place to stay when visiting Quito. It is in an excellent location - walking distance from great restaurants and bars (just a few blocks away) and the historical city center (this is a bit further, ~3km, but still very walkable). The accommodations are really great for the price. The free breakfast is a very good... More

Family-run, extremely welcoming and helpful owners. Beautiful and very clean rooms, although on the smaller side; great breakfast. In the middle of La Mariscal, only a short taxi ride to teleferiQo, old town or the Guyasamin museum. Definitely a most recommended place to stay in Quito.

Posada Tambuca (PT) was ideal for our family for the days we spend in Quito. During our month visit to Ecuador we had Posada Tambuca as our base and starting point. Every time we made an out-of-Quito trip to the jungle, Otavalo, Cotopaxi we kept coming back to Posada Tambuca (we also stored luggage at PT during trips away). Carlos... More

The owners are a nice family. My Spanish isn't so good, so it was helpful that the son spoke enough English to be helpful. Something of note is that they have a transfer service to/from the airport for $25, and they will take you regardless of the time! FYI, being in the Mariscal district, it will be noisy.

We stayed here s we began our time in Quito. Make sure you ask for the room with a private bath and toilet if that's what you want, as not all rooms have this. The breakfast was quite good, our room was a reasonable size and the owners and their son helpful. The owners don't speak English, which makes things... More

Located perfectly close to all the best places, yet away from the loud noises, I couldn't have been more happier with my choice of stay. Not only was the location perfect, but the hosts were even more perfect. A married couple(Yolanda and Carlos), their son( Carlos Jr) and their very furry cat made us feel right at home as soon...

I stayed at Posada Tambuca in July 2015 - arriving in Quito and again after a trip to the Galapagos. Yolanda, Carlos and Carlitos were like family. They took such good care of me and I felt very safe and as if I was in my own home away from home. They are generous and sincere. Great wifi, hot showers,... More

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
