The Odd Blog (I warned you about)

This is a case of what you see is what you get. The photo of the main floor of this condo was taken from the sleeping platform in the upper half of this truly breathtaking apartment.

This tiny city centre apartment is compact in every way - except its breathtaking €50,000 Euro ($70,080 USD) price tag.

The former porter's cupboard, which measures just 5 sq m (or 162.4 sq ft), was put on the market this week.

Described as a "compact bedsit" the property is in one of the city's smartest districts in Rome right next to the ancient Pantheon and with Italy's billionaire Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as one of your neighbours.

Mind you, all you can see from the one tiny window is an alley, and only after you have climbed up a ladder to get to the sleeping platform and then crawled across the bed to get there.

Downstairs is a standing-room only bathroom with a shower, sink and a loo behind a folding door.

According to the Austrian Times, local media commentators have been shocked by the price - even in the city's inflated property market.

The owner, however, refuses to budge on the price.

He claimed: "People seem to like it. I'm getting three or four calls a day about it."
