We were warmly received at Tangara by Antonio and the staff here, and shown to a spacious room with AC and colourful throws on the beds. We went out for a late dinner to a recommended place nearby and enjoyed a delicious breakfast the next morning of fresh fruit and eggs. We had to go straight on with our traveling... More

The Tangara Guest House itself is fairly ordinary so if you're looking for fluffy towels, 24 hr concierge service and a bar in the lobby you may want to go elsewhere. On the other hand if you seek a warm, family-like home stay and a host who spares no effort in making your visit a pleasure the Tangara is the... More

We stayed 2 nights at Tangara during a stopover in Guayaquil and had a very positive experience. The rooms were clean and air conditioned, the breakfast was great an the property is very secure. Further, the location is central to the airport + tourist areas + main shopping malls (about $4 USD taxi ride to each). The staff are very... More

We stayed two nights in Tangara in a private room. We made a reservation on forehand and although we arrived 24 hours later because we got stuck in Cuzco airport, we didn't have to pay for the night that we weren't there. The staff is very friendly and helpfull and the accomodation is cosy, just like a real home. We... More

We arrived into Guayaquil in the morning after an overnight bus ride & took a taxi to Tangara Guest House. We were able to check into our room early, which was great to freshen up. The room was clean with comfortable beds & private shower. Good hot water. There is a communal indoor & outdoor area with wifi available. Breakfast... More

I have faithfully stayed in this spot for my GYE layovers over the past five years because on my first trip my luggage was lost by the airline at midnight and by the time the paperwork was done for it, an hour had passed yet Tangara remained faithful to their promise to provide an airport transfer EVEN after long delays...

We flew back from the galapagos and were taking a bus the next day so wanted some thing close to the airport and bus station. And after hearing about guayaquil a reputation we wanted somewhere safe. Tangara also arranges a pick up from the airport so we felt we were in good hands. The rooms were large, clean, had air... More

Tangara is an oasis. It is conveniently located near the airport and the city center. The AC and WiFi work very well. The rooms are very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Antonio was excellent in providing information about and arranging excursions. Johnny makes the best coffee in Ecuador. We would return without hesitation.

My girlfriend and I stayed here one night between two flights. We were picked up at the airport for free. The city center and the airport are both more or less ten minutes taxi ride. Our two bed room was nice and clean. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit, eggs and bread.

We stayed at the Hostal Tangara several days on a trip to Guayaquil and really enjoyed it. There is a kitchen unit and laundry service along with wifi. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and even made reservations for us on the coast for whale watching. The rooms are quaint and each has hand-painted decorations on the walls. We... More
