We found Tangara House to be exactly as described - an oasis in the middle of Guayaquil. Antonio and Lucia are fantastic. They are both warm and generous people who helped us with local sight seeing and also with the rest of our travel plans around Ecuador.
In Tangara House guests are welcomed to plants, artwork and comfortable rooms. A calm place in the midst of bustling Guayaquil. Safe, friendly, independent and relaxed atmosphere. Rather than staying in a room, you have a house to share with other guests; to feel at home and close to the local life.

We found Tangara House to be exactly as described - an oasis in the middle of Guayaquil. Antonio and Lucia are fantastic. They are both warm and generous people who helped us with local sight seeing and also with the rest of our travel plans around Ecuador. We came to Ecuador mainly to see the Galapogas (which Antonio, very patiently helped arrange) and having now visted other cities have really loved our stay and come to love Ecuador - it's a beautiful country. We are returning to stay at Tangara after our Galapogas and Cuenca travels.
What can I say. This house is a little taste of heaven in the midst of Guayaquil. I cannot recall in the past ten years of travel ever meeting more helpful, courteous, and generous people. Antonio, his sister and Johnny made this stay more than excellent. If you are looking for five star American do not book. This is better. The rooms are not large but more than spacious enough for two people. Air conditioner was the biggest asset in this city. Bathrooms were very clean. Great internet service. Would I stay again? I already did. On my way back to Guayaquil from Cuenca, I needed a room for one night and there was no doubt in my mind to book here again. I was even treated to pick up service from Antonio from the bus depot. And the best part of that is it was his pleasure and his suggestion to pick me up. I was made to feel so special. Again guys Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness. When i return to your great country, I will for sure call and be your guest.
