The golden color scheme is in keeping with the team's limited edition gold phone for Motorola.

Semiramis Hotel Athens

by admin // April 27th, 2008 // Permalink // leave a response // trackback //

The Semiramis is an intimate 52 room hotel in the suburb of Kifissia, in the heart of Athens. The hotel has been designed with positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art, and design as it’s main focus. Set 340 meters above sea level, it is surrounded by restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Sounds like heaven.

Semiramis, Karim Rashid’s first hotel project, is a fusion of Rashid’s influence and owner Dakis Joannou’s vision and own dedication to the modern art world. Mr. Joannou, an eminent collector, patron of modern art and qualified architect, commissioned Karim Rashid to create a hotel that will offer more than extra bed space in Athens.

The Semiramis is an intimate hotel that focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art, and design. It is a place for new contemporary experiences, to enjoy, work, and relax in a truly memorable way. The 52-room hotel, designed by Karim Rashid, will be Athens’ design-inspired hotel, offering a new intimate alternative to modern travellers.

Visiting guests will have the chance to experience a 21st-century creation: from the curve in a desk to the light-box installation behind the beds, Semiramis combines art with bricks and mortar. Comfort and functionality rank high in the design brief and the hotel will offer the complete gamut of services.

Located in the affluent and leafy suburb of Kifissia, Semiramis is in the heart of evolving Athens, surrounded by high-end boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. Set 340 meters above sea level, the hotel offers an oasis from the humidity of central Athens.

Semiramis consists of 51 rooms:
