I am just on my way back home after a week in the Harmony. The hotel is very good. They are building a new wing for the hotel. At least two of the 6 floors are complete and these are the best rooms to have. The room I stayed in had not been used before, which was good. It was clean, but the furniture had obviously been put in rather hastily - the wardrobe was not pushed to its proper place, which exposed unfinished plaster. There were various minor problems like that. It did not detract from the comfort of the room, which was very good. A nice clean comfortable bed, excellent television system the best I have seen in any hotel anywhere in the world and clean bathroom.
As mentioned in previous reports, a large part of the hotel is a building site. The building work did not happen at night or early mornings, so noise was not an issue for sleeping. When the pool is finished, that will be welcome.
The restaurant is OK. Breakfast is good with a wide selection. Buffet dinner is just OK. The bar on the top floor is not that good.
The area immediately around the hotel is safe enough. All of the businesses have their own security. There a re also some good restaurants and bars nearby. Do be wary of walking in less busy areas. Pickpockets are a problem. Keep valuables in secure pockets. Some of the young children that are selling things are really pickpockets. If you are offered something on a tray, watch their other hand which will be under the tray trying your pocket.
