Harma Boutique Hotel
Ranked #54 of 172 Hotels in Hersonissos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2017

Harma Boutique Hotel is in a top location, close to souvenir shops, supermarkets, markets, cafes, restaurants, bars, bus stops and booking agents. It's about 30 minutes by air-conditioned coaches to Heraklion (city and airport) and 45 minutes to Agios Nikolaos. The hotel rooms are situated in three separate buildings including one with the reception, a gym, business/computer room and restaurant. Our room was modern, clean, air-conditioned and reasonably sized with a small refrigerator (and freezer), hair dryer, basic crockery, TV, a kitchen sink and balcony with a partial view towards the ocean. Shower gel, hand soap and towels are provided, but there is no shampoo, hair conditioner, etc. Rooms are serviced daily and bedding and linen changed every second day. There is a lift as well as stairs to each level of the building. Unfortunately, our first impression of the room was less than positive. The bathroom door lock and shower tap fixture were broken, the safe wouldn't close, the phone didn't work and the hair dryer only worked intermittently. While the problems were fixed on day two, the one thing we couldn't change was the proximity to the 'beach'. The hotel is advertised as being directly on the beach. It is close to the ocean, but an actual beach is a couple of minutes' walk. Still, it's not far and you can hire sunbeds and umbrellas near trendy bars and restaurants. We highly recommend Med Cafe for delicious, creative cocktails! Harma is situated at the quieter end of the promenade. The area to the right (if you're facing the ocean) is less busy than the left, but both are worth seeing and experiencing. Harma's food and restaurant staff must be complimented. We booked the 'half pension' which included a daily buffet breakfast and dinner. I read a few negative reviews about the food before booking, but was pleasantly surprised by what was on offer. I found it to be of a high quality and catered to the tastes of tourists from Germany, Italy, France, the UK and Greece. We finished each night time meal with a free shot of Raki! The staff were friendly and professional. The pool area is small, clean and quiet. There's a rooftop area with chairs and tables and a view towards the sea, as well as a bar and sunbeds around the pool. There's also a grassed area behind the pool with sunbeds and umbrellas. Wifi is free-of-charge, but we found it to be quite slow so we occasionally used the (free) high-speed internet on the computers in the business room. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to couples and singles holidaying on a modest budget.

The hotel is divided into 3 different buildings
The pool is awfully small
The most serious problem is that the towels are changed once every two days !!!
The staff helps and is nice
Moderate food
needs improvement

The hotel's location was dead in the center of the shopping district. The wireless worked well. The room includes a breakfast and dinner buffet. The breakfast buffet is very good. The dinner buffet is standard buffet food. I would have preferred more local food for dinner. Room was comfortable, AC worked well. All was good.

The Harma Boutique Hotel is perfectly located in Hersonissis. Hotel rooms are immaculate and modern, staff are very friendly and welcoming and the pool area was nice and quiet, without the hassle of fighting for sun loungers. Pedro and Manos made our stay even better, recommending resorts and restaurants to visit and helping us to book an evening meal in old Hersonissis. The rooms had a free safe and air conditioning and were cleaned daily. My only suggestion would be to request a high floor room, as a small number of the rooms are located on the ground floor, parallel to a road, and they do not have a balcony. Overall, I would definitely return if I were to visit Crete again.

What a delightful experience the hotel is clean and friendly the staff go out of their way to make it even more enjoyable the food was great with plenty variety rooms cleaned every day bed linen and towels changed every other day no extra charges on day of arrival for air con etc central for bars and restaurants short taxi ride away is old hersonissos town well worth a visit very quaint with many restaurants. If I were to make a suggestion it would be to have a larger toast maker or more available but this is not a criticism just a suggestion. Thank you for a very enjoyable and memorable holiday
