Personally I think the higher you live the better.
I'd prefer the penthouse.

Pros
Cleaner
Quieter
Better Views
Better air quality (usually)
Less chance of burglary and graffiti.
Drain blockages usually won't affect higher flats.
In the event of a meteor strike it would be easier
to blockade and protect flat and water tank from the mob. :-)

Cons
As hot air rises, you are often assailed by cooking and other smells from lower flats.
Lift out of order means lugging groceries up many flights,
and some lazy deliverymen will leave items on ground floor.
Keeping pets more problematic higher up.
Pigeons spend more time on the roof c******* on window-sills and balconies.

Hmmmm, well we live pretty high up and are at the top of our building. The view is amazing (you didnt come to our SE1 party or you'd know). No pigeons (we dont leave any food out). TERRIBLE smell from bloody Nando's chimney which pours out all the time. Havent dealt yet with the meteors, but I shall be prepared.
