“Tamaris - Lives on an outdated Lonely planet pick”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

Was promised a AC that was working, but NO, they could not fix it for two nights, heard that other rooms had the same problem. We were overall treated with disrespect from the older lady at the front desk. She insisted on charging full price even though we complained about the problems. The breakfast was horrible. The ohly hope for this place is a younger man at the front desk realizing something was not fair with no sleep and 80 Euros a night. And yes the location is good, I agree with Lonely Planet on that matter...

We stayed at the hotel after arriving on Vis with no accomodation; this was the only room we could find in the whole of Vis town (including Sobe, apartments etc). The hotel is in a great location right on the seafront. Our room was clean and although very basic it had all of the things we needed including air conditioning. A criticism of our room would be that it was very dark as the window looked out onto the building next door so no nice views.
The breakfast was ok - a small choice of cereal, yoghurt, fruit, bread, ham and cheese. It was expensive for what it is but we paid it as we wanted to stay on the island. Stay elsewhere if you can.

Room Tip: Stay at the front of the hotel to enjoy the views of the sea.

We found this hotel to be charming and very well located! Rooms were small but spotless.

The shutters open onto a stunning view of the harbour, with its yachts bobbing up and down in the azure water. The hotel opens directly onto the main promenade, with delightful restaurants, bars, and great local shops. Of special interest was a great winery that offered organic wine, tasted out of this world!!

Breakfast was very tasty, with a lovely outdoor patio. If you don't mind the stairs, this is a great affordable venue with friendly staff and competent service.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. The location is perfect close to the Ferry terminal and the center of town. Breakfast is included in the price but is not very exciting... The room is cheap, staff is friendly enough. Value for money. There are no balconies which would have been nice. There is nothing wrong with this hotel, but neither is there anything extra that makes it better than average.

This is a charming hotel in a great location. We had a room with a beautiful sea view. The room itself is not modern and quite small, but everything works fine and it's good value for money.
The best thing about the hotel is the outdoor coffee/cocktail-bar, which is really modern with comfortable chairs/couches and good music.

Hotel Tamaris simply IS as described below! Cozy and Charming. There are no big suprises to be expected, therefore there will be no big disappointments. The Breakfast is acceptable, the rooms are clean, the staff is nice and the location splendid (town-center, near ferry and beach) and the price is also ok !
You won´t make a mistakee with choosing Hotel Tamaris - since the most important thing to see is actually the Island VIS. it is breathtaking! GO!
