Wonderful family runs this place. Fabulous breakfast. Excellent location. Couple doesn't speak english, but son does. Very warm and friendly. You can really make yourself feel at home here. Mom even took out a splinter I had on my hand. Stayed 4 nights with a buddy. They can also shuttle you places- airport, nearby markets, etc. If I make it...

Other travelers have written about the charms of Posada Tambuca and the family, Yolando, Carlos, and Carlsito, who are the hosts. I want to add a few notes about my experience. I came to Posada Tambuca on my first night in Ecuador. The driver had a hard time finding it - a somewhat dark, mean seeming street. The reception inside...

They only get better and better. Best location, best hosts, best breakfast, best wi-fi. It's within walking distance of the entire Mariscal District, including the artisan market. I've written reviews for here before and I still mean every word!

This is a great place to stay in La Mariscal neighborhood. It's close to Plaza foch but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The family that runs it is very nice. The place is very clean, showers are hot, and breakfast is great. I stay here everytime I travel to Quito.

We had the pleasure of staying at Posada Tambuca over the 2016-2017 holiday season for our first visit to Ecuador. We came and went a few times as we were visiting different areas of Ecuador and we used Posada Tambuca as our "home" base. They let us leave our suitcases there so we needed to only bring what was needed...

Everything about Tambuca was above expectations! Family friendly, comfortable, clean, welcoming, secure, and location near enough to gringo related activities. I can't say enough about the level of hospitality, professionally, and friendliness of the family owned business! Worry-free and helpful. Worth the shuttle service, as we traveled with a small child for secure transportation at 2am, when our flight was...
