Yolanda was wonderful to me, and my brief stay was excellent. I arrived late Sunday night, and when Yolanda heard I was hungry she made me a sandwich because all of the restaurants nearby were closed. My room was comfortable, though the beautiful hard wood floors in this old house are pretty noisy. Bring your earplugs or stay in the... More

Although , the place was under construction, we loved staying because the owners , Yolanda and Carlos were great accommodating people. The picked us up at the airport at 11:00 pm at night, they took us to Banos for a small charge. The breakfast was great too! I will stay there again when I return in February for vacation. Hola...

Can't beat the price and the airport shuttle service. Rooms are very clean . Ask for a private bath and an extra blanket! Yolanda speaks Espanol, her son Carlos speaks a little ingles! Good eating options close by.

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

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
