Our penthouse flat located on a quiet street in the upscale Kolonaki district in central Athens boasts spacious terraces with stunning views of the Acropolis and is walking distance from everything of note. Comfortably fits 2.

The space

Our recently renovated penthouse apartment is ideal for a couple or a visiting professional looking to stay in very central Athens either short term or long-term. The apartment is located on the top floor of an apartment building on a quiet, tree-lined street of Athens' Kolonaki district.

The apartment comfortably fits two (there is a double bed 1.40 x 2 m). There is also a fold out couch in the living room: *note* that this is not the most comfortable sofa-bed in the world but it works!

The modern space which includes a living room with an open kitchen and a bedroom, has three outdoor spaces: one very large terrace with a stunning view of the Acropolis, a quiet terrace around the back (perfect for breakfast or an afternoon read), and a small balcony that looks onto the main tree-lined street. There are 32 m2 of balcony space!

Note that the space is studio-like so there is no door that separates the bedroom and the main living space.

More photos to come soon - we now have plants on all the balconies!

We arrived in Athens on an early flight and were able to check in right away. We were met at the apartment by Constantine's mother, Marilena who was very accommodating and helpful with tips on where to go and what to do. The apartment is small but perfectly formed. Great for two people. And the views are just incredible. I think I have about a hundred photos of the acropolis from the deck. The location is also very good and an easy walk to all the sights. I can't recommend this place enough.

Constantine's penthouse was an undoubted success - sunny, air-conditioned for the 35º heat, a view to take your breath away, and perfect amenities. I was in Athens for a work holiday and this place proved perfect. The searing heat was kept at bay while I needed to work, and in the evenings the location was perfect for exploring the neighbourhoods of Kolonaki, Psirri, Dexameni, Plaka and everything else around. Plus, easy walking distance to many museums and a €5 taxi to the top of the Acropolis (walking uphill is a winter sport here I suppose!). Constantine was amazing with immediate help when I needed it and I would be extremely comfortable spending a lot more time here. Travelling this time alone as a single woman, I felt very safe and secure here at night while waking up with coffee to sit on the terrace and watch Athens wake up (slowly, as it does). I was impressed with the clean decorating and furniture and lovely tiled floor, and a kitchen equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine to make long stays easy. So couples and single travellers, don't delay! This is a sure place to take your breath away as you enjoy this marvellous ancient city with very modern, gracious inhabitants.

Lovely apartment in good part of Athens. Great views of the acropolis. Apartment is small but good outdoor spaces. We were three for one night but really only suitable for 2 people as bathroom really small and space a bit tight. Would recommend, nice and clean and everything you need for a stay in central athens.

An amazing apartment. Such a good location for us - and lovely to lay in bed with the shutters and big doors open to the rooftop deck. The place was clean and to the standards I live in at home. The host and family were super friendly and helpful also. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Greece.

This was a return trip for me, because this is a lovely little apartment: absolutely perfect for me as a business traveller. Great location; lovely terrace from which to watch the morning light catch the Acropolis...and the sun set...and the moon rise. I love that it has three different terraces, that all serve different purposes in different times of day and seasons.
