Description

The Space

Dear friends,

I am very proud to offer to the airbnb community the chance to stay at this unique penthouse on the 7th floor (8th for the USA) of a central building in Athens.

The view from the apartment is simply breathtaking. No words and no pictures can do it justice. Acropolis seems to enter the living room through the big floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Day and night, the experience is like living on the hill of the Parthenon. Especially during the night, when the monument´s lights are turned on, the atmosphere is a true 5 stars experience. Time for candle light dinners under the shadow of Acropolis hill.

Several buildings offer views of the Acropolis in the background, but it is impossible to find such a close view with this nice combination of the surrounding area.

Besides the living room, every room, every part of the house is privileged of this extraordinary view. Even the bathroom !! Taking a shower, inside this penthouse, is a unique experience. The temple of Hephaestus is a postcard view from the bathroom window.
Same with the comfortable bedroom. The Hephaestus temple with Thissio hill on the background is the frame on top of your head.

There's even a big veranda with plants, flowers, bbq and a hammock, offering 360 degrees panoramic views of Athens city.

I recently finished the renovation and being a civil engineer myself I paid attention to every small detail.
I can assure you that staying in this penthouse offers you only the best.

I will mention some details which make an absolute difference:

Bed and mattress of the best quality.
55' 3D TV 55' in the living room & 32' 3D TV in the bedroom
Latest technology's a/c units in every room for guaranteed perfect temperature
Rain shower in the bathroom.
Video camera surveying the main entrance of the building.
Safety alarm equipment (internal - outdoor)
Fast and reliable WI FI
All electric appliances are brand new (fridge, washing machine, dish washing machine, microwave oven, toaster, boiler etc)

Thanks for taking the time to read about my unique place. I am looking forward to being your host in my beloved city.

Happy travels to everybody !!!

Interaction with Guests

We are here to ensure a perfect stay. Me or my assistant, we will be at your disposal any time. Please don't hesitate to contact us. Satisfaction guaranteed.

The Neighborhood

You will love this, most favourite among tourists, spot of the city.

The penthouse is very close the famous Monastiraki sq, where the metros from the airport (42') and Piraeus port (15') stop.
All monuments are obviously under your feet.
The famous Athens flea market is in front of your window.
Acropolis museum is a pleasant 10 - 15 mins walk.
Plaka, the district with the island feeling, is in front of your door.
All best night-life bars and restaurants are nearby.

The only downside, I have to confess, is that you 're gonna love so much staying inside or at the veranda of this amazing penthouse, that you will not feel the need to explore the city :-)

Getting Around

Paid parking in a private facility is available across the street of our building.

Hey guys and many thanks for visiting my profile. I was born in Athens and I really love this amazing city. This is the main reason I bought and renovated 2 apartments, right in the most central part of the city. Having travelled a lot as well, I find that the interaction with the locals always give you the right tips and makes the difference in the discovery of a new place. I am looking forward to meeting you personally and share with you the secrets of my city.
