A group i was traveling with stayed here last week and to be honest, the hotel needs to improve a lot as far as their building goes and their service. To say the least, they must improve their english in order to help groups like ours and as well as tourists that may visit. Rooms are out of date, with... More

Words just can't truly describe the runned down aura of this hotel.This place was dingy, old, dirty, and stinky . I didn't sleep at all. The bed was very uncomfortable and I couldn't bring my self to pull the covers on. The floor was equally gross . If you plan to stay in Quito the Howard Johnson is very clean... More

The amenities of the room were not the ones expected in that kind of hotel. But food was ok, staff was ok too and was friendly, and wifi access was... More

We stayed seven days at the Tambo Real last week while on a mission trip building a facility for children. Ate breakfast and dinner most nights at the hotel; food was very good, a nice variety, never had a problem. Stayed on the sixth floor and the views were spectacular, city lights and surrounding mountains. Room was a suite with... More

We stay at the Tambo every summer, when we visit Quito. In many ways it is like stepping back in time to a more elegant era. The hotel lobby features marble floors and a uniformed staff and bellman. The restaurant is open for three meals a day served by attentive tuxedo-clad waiters. The food, while not fancy is of reasonable... More
