I stayed there one night, December 30/31, 2009.
The only good things that I can say about the hotel are the convenient location (100 m from the train station, 300 m from the bus terminal, with a local bus station for the Valley of the temples in front of the train station) and the fact that they had a room ready at 10 am. For the rest...I think I could have found better for 45 eur/night per single room.
I had a double in single occupancy. The room was small, with old furniture that reminded me of the Stalinist era. The carpet was full of dark spots, which probably were so old that no cleaning could erase them. Even if advertised as a 3* hotel, it did not have a minibar in the room and not even a hairdryer in the bathroom. The reason for the last became obvious: there was not hot water either, even if I left the water flow for 30 min.
I did check-out early, at 7 am. On the sofa in the lobby there was a pillow and a blanket, probably left by the man at the reception that has slept there during the night. For breakfast all he could offer was a tiny cup of milk (I did not want coffee) and a piece of packed toast. I asked for a taxi, but after 15 minutes of phone calls the receptionist looked at me helpless and told me there is not one available, and I should walk to the bus station. I had a quite heavy suitcase and a shoulder bag, and it was quite unpleasant because the road to the bus station was up on a hill. The previous evening I did ask the reception to reserve a taxi in advance but they told me there is no problem to find it on the spot.
