We arrived in Quito and were picked up by Carlos - the son of the family. He's very good in english and we had a perfect conversation whilst driving to Quito. We stayed in Tambuca for almost two weeks and went back two times. Soon it felt like home for us. Carlos and Yolanda always were there for their guests. They helped us finding a good opportunity to climb the Cotopaxi, we were able to leave all our luggage there when we went off for 5 days, we spent a evening together looking at the fotos of our ascend, we loved the cat, there was a great breakfast between 7:30 and 12:00 a.m., everything was perfectly clean and the rooms are all we needed. Even when Carlos and Yolanda didn't speak english, it was always possible to communicate. They were our family in Quito and we can't thank them enough for all they did. I can only recommend staying in Tambuca.
It's not far away from Plaza Foch in Mariscal, just a five-minutes-walk and close to the busstation. They provide free drinkingwater, you have a fully stuffed and clean kitchen to cook in and it never bothered me, sharing a bath with the few other guests.
Tambuca is definitly the best place to stay in Quito!More
