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

Yolonda and Carlos make you feel right at home in this cozy posada located a short walk to Mariscal Sucre, the northern area of town with many tourist related delights. 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
