“small B&B near Brasov, relaxing and full of charm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Not really a hotel, but more like a B&B, the location is full of charm and very quiet.

We have just returned from a longer weekend spent in Harman, where we felt like doing nothing but relaxing and reading. We chose the hotel due to a friend's recommendation, and we were not disappointed. Great breakfast, great owner with whom we had some interesting conversations and shared some nice stories and memories, and great local food.

Don't be fooled by the swimming pool in the photos, it is not operational, though we did not miss it. The owner, Mrs. Cosnean, has a small tailoring workshop and also prepares some nice jellies, jams and other types of preserved vegetables, which are extraordinary in taste.

We strongly recommend it.

This house certainly has character, and it is definitely not an anonymous hotel room. If you are looking for something different, and a really nice to talk to host, then you should definitely give it a try.

It is on the outskirts of Brasov, you need a car to access it. There is not a lot to do in Harman. We had our bikes with us and were thinking initially of doing some off road trails in a forest nearby, except that there is no forest nearby and it is in the middle of a flat field, with main roads on all sides and a lot of traffic going in and out of Brasov.

We were there with our two small children, and the apartment we had looked very nice - sort of like visiting an aunt's house, minus the cats. But you can probably appreciate this more if you don't travel with small kids, who are very curious. I always had the impression they were about to break something, so this was a bit uncomfortable for us. This is true also for the main house, where Marcela the owner lives, and where she cooked for us breakfast and dinner. The food was really good indeed, but again having to chase after 2 kids in a house full of souvenirs, I can't say we got to fully enjoy it.

The yard has a lot of potential, but when we were there in the middle of July, because of the heat and drought probably the grass was almost dried out. And I'm sad to say that there was a lot of junk towards the back yard plus a small swimming pool that had no water in it and looked pretty worn out. As we only stayed for one night, our kids didn't have time to really explore all of this, and I'm glad because it would have probably not been a good idea.

All in one, it is a really interesting choice for grown ups, or even maybe with big kids, but I don't really recommend it for small children.

When you step for the first time in The Country Hotel in Harman/Brasov (Romania) you feel like you stepped into a different dimension where time stays still and you feel the warmth of your home, the excitement of an adventure and the perfect moment of relaxation. Not to mention the food which is heaven and the people that makes it all possible with charm and dedication.

services at a reasonable price.
landlady involvement in everything that happens there gives a touch of relaxing the threshold passing visitors.
sleep eat what you want and how you like!

Room Tip: choose the upstairs room, one that is down the hall.

Hi! I’ve visited this place and I may say I am excited to return! Me and my boyfriend, we wanted to have a quiet weekend. I have to say it was more then we expected!
First of all, we liked the idea of spending time in a beautiful and authentic place! We also found the best host in the world, we took home made dinner and breakfast and the company of Mrs. Marcela (the host) was delightful!
Thank you Mrs. Marcela!
