Don't worry about the small reception area or the rather dingy hallways - if you're heading to the Greek Islands from Piraeus, stay at the Attalos Hotel. We had a bargain priced triple with the best showerhead in Greece and the room was clean as could be. The Monastiraki Metro is less than two blocks away (straight shot to the airport and to Piraeus). Zillions of restaurants in that area, the best view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar of any place in Athens, a lounge with computers and printers if you need to print tickets or boarding passes, and they will lock up your luggage if you are leaving and coming back some days later. Great helpful staff could answer all our questions.
NOTE: We met people who had stayed in Piraeus because their ferry left early. Piraeus is a pretty horrible place and we chose to stay at Attalos, then catch a 6am metro to Piraeus instead. It was a smart move since the metro is only 30 min. to Piraeus and we had breakfast on the ferry.
