My girlfriend and I visited Hotel Platanista last July.
A short transfer from the airport and in a great location. Just far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough to walk/ride/catch a bus in and visit some of the local restaurants and bars.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable, spacious room and a fully functioning air con! (which seems to be less available these days).
Breakfast and dinner buffets had a wide choice, I'd definitely recommend the waffles for breakfast!
Lovely taverna at the bottom of the road which serves freshly caught, local fish. I'd also recommend going on one of the excursions - Nisyros boat trip and island tour and the Katerina island cruise.
The only negative I had during my stay was that some of the staff came across as a bit rude and judgemental (being younger than the majority of couples and families and mostly covered in tattoos, didn't seem to bode well with some). The facilities, food, rooms and majority of staff made this a super relaxed and memorable holiday.
