About this listing
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. Live with the Parthenon in front of your eyes.
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 describe it. Acropolis seems to enter the living room through the big floor-to-ceiling glass windows. You cannot imagine this 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.
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 !!!
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.

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)
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, stops. 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 :-)
