The Tamara was very attractive, well appointed, had a good location and excellent breakfast. The staff spoke very little English, nevertheless was absolutely wonderful in helping us with what we needed. One employee walked us 4 blocks to the Post Office. The only criticism I could make was that the hot water supply was erratic

I really liked this hotel. It wasn't anything special, but the service was very friendly and helpful, the check-in quick and the breakfast fresh and tasty. Just as a Van breakfast should be.

The Otel Tamara has large, clean rooms...not luxurious by any standard but comfortable with air conditioning and free wifi connections in rooms. It is located in the heart of the city with lots of local shops and the cheese nearby.
