We stayed at the Art Hotel for two nights this week (August 2012). The hotel is right on the water - only a spacious deck and a tiny strip of rock separate it from the Aegean - and the views are spectacular, especially as you get up to the 2nd and 3rd floor. My room had a palm tree growing right in front of it, which only added to the tranquil view. It's slightly less tranquil at night with noise from the patio and the bar, as other posters have noted, so you can't sleep with your balcony door open to the crashing waves, sadly, but each room has a small private balcony so you can hear them all day long if you choose. I had a room on the 3rd floor a few doors to the right of the elevator and the hubbub below was low-level audible with the balcony door closed at night, but not too bad. If you are sensitive, ask for a room farther away from the elevators (and probably towards the port side of the hotel), as the soundproofing is better for the exterior doors than for the hallway doors. The hotel rooms are quite nice - spacious bathrooms and good showers, a/c, tv, etc., nicely designed and with a blue color scheme. All very clean and modern looking, with a ton of lighting options. The only drawback is the beds, which are not very comfortable (thin mattresses) and the pillows, which are atrocious (thin, hard, and lumpy all at the same time somehow). But for the price and the view it's a good find, and the private balconies feel like a nice peaceful retreat after the craziness that is Kos in August (or probably almost any other summer time).
