I stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. The room was nice, albeit small, and the bathroom was clean - it looked as if it had been recently renovated. My room didn't have a balcony although the rooms in the front and back of the building do - ask for this if it's important to you. The location is about a block away from the bus station and it's easy to walk from here to St. John's Castle, the museum, and the Temple of Artemis ruins.
The markets surround the hotel when they are on (Sat. morning?) - I was shocked when I woke up and saw nothing but umbrella's where an empty parking lot had been the night before.
The breakfast was limited - don't expect much other than some bread, tea, fruit, and hard-boiled eggs.
Staff seemed a bit grumpy (like I was bothering them) and were never really around -- the front desk was unmanned the entire morning although I found someone sleeping on the couch in the back room behind the curtain. Laundry service is available from the front desk (if you can find someone to help you).
My rating would have been a four had the staff been a bit friendlier and helpful.
