Ahh, Tempi Hotel. Proof yet again that good things come in surprising packages. From the street, this family-run hotel looks unassuming, even dumpy. Inside, however, clean rooms and friendly Yannis at the split-level reception make Tempi's bare-bones and super affordable rooms a great deal.
The Tempi's 24 rooms are small, they don't have telephones, and there's no breakfast offered beyond coffee or tea. But they're clean and tidy, and even stylish in a simple, gently retro manner. We liked the prim beds with brown blankets. Stand-alone wardrobes, tiled floors, and small balconies complete the picture.
Half of the Tempi's rooms have private bathrooms, and the other half share showers, sinks, and toilets. Guests also have use of a kitchen that doubles as a bar/lounge.
Rates are especially good given the location, just a hop from the Monastiraki metro station and a farther skip and jump to Plaka. In low season, rates drop a noticeable—dare we say astounding!?—25%.

About the Tempi Hotel neighborhood
Surrounding Monastiraki Square, the neighborhood of Monastiraki ranks next to Plaka as a top tourist neighborhood, home to the last remaining mosque in Athens, Hadrian's Library, the Roman Agora and Tower of the Winds.
