I booked this hotel in advance, not knowing exactly what to expect given the ambiguous photos listed on this website which do NOT really flatter it. The gaudy, big blue sign from the road doesn't look very promising until you get up close and realize it's only there for people to see it when they come in from the port.
And believe me, after 5 hours on a ferry, you'll appreciate it much more.
Anyway, a hotel should always be about more than looks. And Hotel Boulis is a very quaint, quiet little piece of heaven on an island that caters to people looking to relax. The TV in our room was puny, but with the free wi-fi and our laptop, we didn't really need it. You should also ask in advance for a room with the courtyard balconies--the ones on the outside of the hotel don't exactly have the greatest views on earth. Comfortable beds, too. We got a double and a single, though we didn't need the latter.
Their breakfast "buffet" is decent if simple--just remember that in Greece, breakfast really isn't that much of a big deal, so be prepared to wait until lunchtime for better options.
Lynn at the front desk was a big help in every way and was very accommodating. The cleaning staff also did a great job, and were very helpful.
