11 Airbnb Alternatives With Jaw-Dropping City Views

Who doesn't love a room with a view, especially if it's a Plum Guide room?

Life moves so fast, sometimes it's good to stop and take in the view. That's exactly what we've done with this list of our favourites from homes across our collection. Trust us it wasn't easy to narrow down - we have some pretty spectacular views on offer. From sea expanses to city skylines, here are some of the best. Enjoy!

Gold'n Marble, ParisWell, that's one historic landmark you can check off your to-do list. More time for eating your body's weight in pain au chocolat.

Terrazza Dorata, RomeThe ultimate view of Rome's skyline? Perhaps. With sights of the Vittoriano monument and Quirinale Palace, it's hard to know where to look first.

Pop Art Cool Down, NYCAdmittedly not everyone's idea of a beautiful view, but we couldn't resist putting it on our list. Get up close and personal with Midtown Manhattan's skyscrapers.

The London Observatory, LondonThe view is in the name. This glass-walled balcony really shows off the city - you won't be short of London landmarks to admire from up here.

Can You See The Castle?, Lisbon There might be plenty of rooftop terraces in Lisbon, but not many with a view like this one. 

Quarter Moon, LAWe couldn't make this list without including at least one infinity pool, now could we? 

Carbon Vista, LAPlush sun loungers, check. Glorious sunshine, check. Views out to sea, check. This we could get used to.

Eye in the Sky, Tel AvivSweeping views across the city and hot dogs? This home might just have it all.

The Observatory, ParisPanoramic views of the most iconic sights Paris has to offer? Yes please.

Sea More, Tel AvivStare out to sea from your private, beachside balcony. It's a hard life.

McMoody, LAThe Hollywood Hills aren't a bad perch to view LA from. We're definitely not complaining
