Charming hosts and a lovely house in an ideal location. Everything was simple and all our needs were accommodated including much appreciated help with airport transport. The breakfast was excellent and accompanied by pleasant (classical) background music. Perhaps the best Internet access we've had during our journey. We will definitely go back to Posada Tambuca if we have another chance... More

We enjoyed our stay with Jolanda and Carlos. A highlight was.being with the family and watching the US and Ecuador play soccer in a televised tournament! Nice family atmosphere that made our stay very comfortable and inviting.

Although the owners Yolande and Carlos don't speak English, we got by with my basic Spanish and both were very welcoming and helpful (their son Carlitos speaks English but he wasn't around much). Carlos met me at the airport which was much appreciated because of my flight arriving late at night, then the next day, he pointed out places of... More

I loved staying here, the family were all so very kind and thoughtful. Jolanda made lovely breakfasts in her nice casual but efficient manner. She has a way of speaking Spanish that even I could understand. We had full use of the clean kitchen. The room and linens were all clean as well. I found it very quiet and we... More

This is a very simple place but the service is really great and the position is very convenient. Breakfast is also decent. We have been there in March very low season, so the guesthouse was pretty much empty and the couple running it was on holiday. Their son Carlos was managing the place during our visit. He organised our collection... More

I've stayed here a few times and it's always been great! The family that runs the place is really friendly and helpful. Clean and on a quiet street that's in a good location. It's my go to place in Quito.

If it was not the construction that started RIGHT outside our window at 7:30am, or the owners having friends over at 10:30pm, or making phone calls right outside our door, or the other guests arriving at 1am, then any other footsteps in the building seem to echo throughout. A funky little hotel if you are a heavy sleeper, but two... More

As a mature couple we looked for a quiet place to stay in Quito, and we found Posada Tambuca. We stayed there 3 times over 2 week adventure in Ecuador/Galapagos. The owners Yolanda and Carlos are exceptional hosts. Transfers from and to the airport, to bus stations very early in the morning never a problem ( and the fee is... More

My husband and I live in Malacatos, Ecuador. When we are flying to or from the US via Quito, this is where we love to stay. The owners, Yolanda and Carlos, keep the Posada spotlessly clean and the beds are comfortable. It is a secure and peaceful environment for resting or relaxing during your travels and has a variety of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a triple room on the top floor. Everything was nice with comfortable beds and a rooftop restaurant with super nice view. It's in the historical part of the city, so it's walking distance to many of the attractions. However, the wall dividing room is hardly sound proof in any way. I'm not usually... More
