The 1 and only Acropolis penthouse!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Karaiskaki, Athens, Attica 105 54, Greece

The Space

One of the very few apartments with this amazing, uninterrupted, postcard view of the Acropolis from the living room NOT only from the balcony or the terrace. That means day or night from inside the perfect conditions of the heated /cooled room, no matter if it rains, makes hot or cold outside, you will have this rare oportunity to live with the Parthenon in front of your eyes.

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.

This place is unique for three specific reasons.

The first and the most important is the apartment´s view.

It is is simply breathtaking. No words and no pictures can describe it. Acropolis seems to enter the living room through the big floor-to-ceiling glass windows. You cannot believe the feeling.
Day and night is like living on the hill of 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 shade of Acropolis.
Many buildings offer views of the Acropolis but it is impossible to find one this close combined with its surroundings.
Besides the living room, every room, every part of the house shares this extraordinary view. Even the bathroom !! Taking a shower in this penthouse is an experience on its own. 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 and flowers offering 360 degrees panoramic views of Athens city.

The second trait making this place unique is the luxury materials used.

I just 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.
3D TV 50' in the living room , 3D TV 32' in the bedroom
Latest technology's a/c units in every room, perfect temperature guaranteed.
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 etc)

Third reason making this penthouse your best option is the location.

You will love this, most favorite among tourists, spot of the city. The penthouse is very close the famous Monastiraki sq, where the metro from the airport and Piraeus port, 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 nightlife 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 :-)

Last but not least : Athens Fish Spa offer : 10% DISCOUNT to all my guests in any treatment they choose and free trial fish pedicure. If you don't know what the fish spa is about, please visit the page at (email hidden)/thefishspa or www,athensfishspa,com. I promise it's great fun. You will love it.

IMPORTANT
An one time cleaning fee of 30 Euros will be collected in cash during the check in and please bring your passport with you as we need a copy for security reasons.
Please also note that a check in after 11 pm is charged 20 Euros.

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 !!!

P.S. In the apartment there is a large double bed (1,60 * 2,00 m) in the bedroom, a sofa that probably can be used for sleeping, and an inflatable air bed (1.50 * 1.90 m) in the living room.

This apartment is not suitable for families with very young kids

Thanks

    Thanks for this nice review. Happy travels Kristiina !

  • We had a wonderful stay in Athens at Fotis' place. The Penthouse is very central to the main Athens sites and to the Metro. Christine greeted us and even walked us to our dinner location as we got oriented to the surroundings. Would highly recommend staying here if you're going to be in town!

    Thank you Luke. Happy travels my friend !

  • Fotis' place is first class in every way. The view is spectacular and the attention to detail in the design and construction of his place made me want to hire his architect. It is close to lots of shops, a nice easy 30 min stroll to the Acroplois (or a 10 minute jog), and restaurants abound. We walked to Parliament and back and saw lots of great places to eat, relax and watch the crowds and shop.

    If you are a light sleeper it is good to rise early because the cobbler a few floors below starts early.

    A great place to stay!

    Response from Fotis:

    Hey Kenny, thanks for this positive review ! Actually I am the architect of this apartment, this is my main profession :-) Regarding the noise from the below floor, thanks for noticing, nobody else had mentioned anything in the past. I will take care of it, for sure.

  • This apartment is fantastic! Fotis did an amazing job renovating. The views are amazing so plan to eat in at least one evening. The location is also ideal for accessing good restaurants and more shops than there is time for. Also an easy and pleasant walk to both the Acropolis and Plaka. Fotis has good recommendations for restaurants that we enjoyed, being the foodies we are. He also helped with a cool shop marketing local fresh and natural products. We picked up a couple of good bottles of red wine and snacks on our way from the fish spa to the apartment. Don't miss out on the fish pedicure. What an experience. If we ever find ourselves in Athens we would definitely stay here again. Enjoy!

About
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.
