As others have mentioned, this hotel is in a quiet part of Piraeus and convenient to the cruise terminal (we walked there). There is nothing of interest in the immediate area after dark, which is when we arrived. For dinner, we walked to the Marina area (up the hill in the opposite direction from the Cruise/Ferry ports). The marina area had an active nightlife with a number of places serving dinner; it is about a 15 minute walk.
The hotel is basic, nothing fancy. The room was the size of a typical budget room, with small but adequate bathroom. There is free WiFi in the rooms. The "view" from our room was facing the back of another building. The breakfast service was not consistent for us. One of us ate about 20 minutes earlier than the other and we each were attended to by different staff members; the one I experienced was not the usual attendant, but was filling-in for a brief period and she provided minimal service, My travelling companion arrived later and had a more pleasant and thorough breakfast service.
In general, this hotel is a good value (we paid €40 for a double with breakfast) and it was fine for a one-night stay, and we would consider it again for a future trip. If we were to stay longer than one night, we would most likely stay in Athens.
