Haralambos Studios
Ranked #6 of 14 Kefalos B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We’ve spent 2 weeks in Kefalos this summer (from Aug 29th to Sep 12th). The Haralambos apartments are setted in the best side of the island. Every day the room gets cleaned up, towels are changed daily. the small kitchen is completely furnished and air conditioning was included in the fee. There’s also a beautiful balcony on which is possible to relax and have dinner. There is a family market enough refurnished (you will not find anything better in that part of the island that can be reach by foot!) and the family restaurant is welcoming and you can test typical greek menu. The Henry’s family is kind and they will help you in be relaxed and to enjoy your staying. In particular Jhon in the market will give you all the info about the island, beaches and so on. The best beaches can be reach by foot (Agios stefanos, Kamari, Agios Nicolaos) or by public bus (paradise beach, marcos beach). The bus stop is in front of Haralambos studios so from the airport there’s no need to take a taxi or to rent a scooter during the journey. Buses are always on time and we suggest a day trip to Kos and Bodrum. For all this reasons we consider the Haralambos studio a good choice if you want to get the best from Kos Island

What a disappointment this place was. After reading such positive reviews i was sure this would be a good place to stay and unwind, how wrong i was. The road outside resembled a speedway track with bikes n quads speeding by at all hours. The room was clean but very very basic, certainly very few home comforts. The bathroom was ultra basic and might as well not have contained a shower for all the use it was, the water pressure was none existent whenever i used it. The taverna wasnt much kop either and found better value tavernas throughout the resort. I liked the resort and may well return in the future, but i definately wont be staying here again.

We wanted a relaxing holiday in a quiet, peaceful resort which is what Kefalos, on the whole could provide but not in this location. .The noise from the road is unavoidable, day or night. What with motorbikes speeding along doing 'wheelies' and coaches and buses hurtling past making the place vibrate, this was a real downside for us.
It was so bad that at one point we considered sleeping on a sunbed down on the beach! We have been visiting Kos for a long time now trying out nearly every resort. We expected this to be a particularly relaxing holiday but it wasn't to be the quiet escape we had hoped for.
Kefalos has a very picturesque harbour and some lovely restaurants. Our favourites included Santa Barbara and Sebastians which are both down towards the harbour jetty. If we return to this resort this is the area we would stay in as it's much quieter and everything is on your doorstep (apart from the traffic!)
The apartments were clean but very pokey and lacked the Greek traditional style that we like.

Room Tip: Whichever room you stay in, if you are not a very heavy sleeper, you should take some decent earplug...

Wonderful food, fantastic Family. We stayed here June 2012 and returned this year to Kefalos we couldn't get in at the apartments it was not surprisingly fully booked, however we managed to eat here at least every other night. The family are amazingly hard working and do everything within their power to ensure your visit is as good as it possibly can be. The apartments are basic but very clean (all we need is a shower, comfy bed and a fridge for the Ouzo) the Supermarket has everything you could need and if you find something isn't available Yianni will get it (pomme sticks). The food served in the restaurant is lovely, hot and home made, most of the food comes from the family farm. Harry is CRAZY loud and loveable. After returning home in June 2013 we booked again for September (had to wait 8 weeks to return damn.) It was just like coming home back to a Family we hold so dear. Thank you all of you! See you again soon.

We have just come back from Kefalos and we stayed at harrys aka Harrys. The room we stayed in was lovely and clean and the bedding was changed everday. The view we had on our balcony was sea view which was gorgeous. The only little problem I had was that they only provided 2 toilet rolls then you had to buy your own. I thought this was a little bit hard. God forbid if you or your child had a bout of the runs. Apart from this Harry and his family are lovely and make u feel very welcome.

We went back to Kefalos and the Haralambous Studios after a break of 19 years and I'm happy to report that everything (except for people being older) was exactly as we remembered it 19 years ago! Harry is still as ebullient and loud as ever, although he has slowed down a bit, Yianni and Katerina are both as helpful and friendly as they ever were and Sevesti's meals are to die for! The accommodation is basic but it is comfortable and very clean with maid service every day except for Sunday. My sister in law accompanied us on this trip and it was her first time in Kos. She fell in love with the place and will definitely return, as will we! Best holiday in a long time, thank you.

You will get excellent value for money in this accommodation and the family who are run it are just the most friendly people you could wish to meet . We were greeted by "John" who took our cases to our room and made us feel very welcome. He also runs the shop and we found it very convenient to buy almost everything we needed here. Harry's restaurant is definately worth a visit and we happily used the sunbeds and umberellas (charge 5 euros) owned by the family on the beach 5 minutes away from the studios. This accommodation is ideally situated close to the beach and harbour and even a near a bus stop. We expected road noise because this was mentioned in other reviews but this was not really a problem for us (perhaps the road is not as busy in September) in any case we sat out on our balcony quite happily during the day and closed our window at night! The room was basic but no more so than any other self catering accommodation we have stayed in and the beds were very comfortable. Our room was cleaned everyday but Sunday and were given fresh towels everytime this was done. We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday and I would recommend Haralambos Studios to anyone looking for something similar.
