Value for money hotel. Very clean and comfortable room. The staff is very polite and helpful and 24 hours at service. Tempi Hotel is located in the heart of Athens and is 3 minutes walk from Monastiraki metro station.

Excellent location steps from Monastiraki, centrally located on pedestrian street across from church and lots of food options. All historic sights walking distance. Hotel is quite narrow with an interesting luggage only elevator. Staff is friendly and speak good English.
I was on the 5th floor and had a terrace overlooking the centre and the Acropolis. Unfortunately the design of the hotel is right angle to the Acropolis.
Shower was good, lack of plugs in room. Good wifi signal. Shared kitchen available. Good base for exploring historic Athens

Honestly, I was thrilled to be staying at Hotel Tempi. The location was absolutely perfect and it came highly recommended by a friend. My enthusiasm ended shortly after setting foot into the place. There was no room available to me anymore as they were overbooked, even though I booked the accomodation directly on their own website months in advance.

After sharing my dissapointment I was personally blamed for this fact, as I apparantly had been too 'demanding' in my e-mail conversations in which I politely requested either a room with a view or a more quiet room. I simply shared a preference here and only inquired if they could take a preference into account. months in advance.

No, in the eyes of the receptionist I was not a fit for the hotel and definitely needed to take my business to their partner hotel a few streets back. After sharing my dissapointment and going through my options of finding an alternative that day, I had to take the offer. It turned out it was not a good alternative at all and spent my days in Athens stressed and dissapointed. I love Greece, I love Greeks, I actually love the usual customer service in Greece, but this was a singular, terrible experience.

When you arrived in our hotel, we informed you about our hotel’s policy according to which only the rooms with private shower/wc and with a higher price are located in the front side of the hotel and have a balcony with view. With your full agreement we proceeded to provide you a quite room with no balcony as per your initial reservation.

It brings us a huge and very sad surprise to receive all these complaints from you especially since we were not at all informed by your part during your stay with us. You stayed for 6 days and you never asked for another room or some different kind of service which we would be glad to provide. Everything from a change of the room or help to find another hotel would be an option and we would have been glad to satisfy your need, as we always do. But unfortunately we were never informed from you, as you claimed, and during all of his 6 days stay you seemed quite kind friendly and satisfied.

All these are untrue arguments with great concern. You were throwing the rooms towels down on the floor everyday, so we were changing them with new and clean (our policy is, as a one star hotel, to change the towels and the sheets every two days). As for the shower, it is the only room on the floor with common shower, so it had been used only from you, so the hair that you claim to have found belong to you. As for the pictures of the skylight, we continue to wonder, why you had to take these pictures from a specific place of the hotel, located two floors above your room and very far from it. Having photos from the whole room would show how comfortable it is, and how clean we kept it, as we do with every room, every customer, everyday.
We also wonder why you took with you after you left the new alarm clock that we bought for the room.

As for the manager Yiannis, he has been doing this job for thirty years and his trying his best for the customers.

Thank you,
Tempi Hotel

Room was clean and cool and the location was perfect for atmosphere and access to train, shops and restaurants.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. So if you don't mind climbing a few steps and don't expect five star - this is the ideal budget place to stay!

Room Tip: If you don't enjoy a big climb try for first floor - there's a lift for baggage We stayed here and didn't hear a beep!
