Designed by internationally acclaimed industrial designer Karim Rashid, SEMIRAMIS is every fashionista's dream come true. This contemporary hotel, member of YES! Hotels, provides a variety of spacious guest rooms, luxury suites, and pool bungalows in the beautiful setting of Kifissia.

Fashion Studio Magazine visited this chic property in May 2017 and we were truly impressed not only with the hotel's location and unique, colourful interiors, but also with friendly customer service and excellent dining options.


"SEMIRAMIS is an intimate property that focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art and design. Located in the affluent and leafy suburb of Kifissia, Semiramis is in the heart of evolving Athens, surrounded by high-end boutiques, restaurants & cafes. Only 20 minutes from El.Venizelos airport and 30 minutes from the centre of Athens." - YES! Hotels

SLEEPING IN STYLE

Located in fashionable Kifissia, SEMIRAMIS is not just a hotel; it's an experience. This hip and vibrant property has everything you need for a perfect stay: an outdoor swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness centre, and a high level of personal service. 


"Guests entering through the glowing pink glass cube into a lobby know they are in store for something radically different than the city’s classic architecture. Semiramis’ guestrooms, suites and poolside bungalows offer both the use of creative materials (like the opaque glass bathroom wall) and playful design, such as the light-box art installations behind each bed. The designer takes an innovative approach in mixing textures and materials: colored concrete with rubber floors, for example, or ceramic tiles with metal and epoxy with dark wood. Innovative technology is also a given in Rashid’s 21st century concept." - Design Hotels

TRENDY SURROUNDINGS

Once you step outside the hotel, you will find excellent restaurants and coffee shops, countless art galleries, and fashion boutiques. If you are looking for a place to unwind, you will certainly appreciate the relaxed, resort-like atmosphere of Kifissia; very different than the always busy city centre.


"This prestigious district near the terminus of the metro line has always been one of the city’s most important commercial districts. Located 15 kilometres north-east of Athens, this suburb was established in the late 19th century as a countryside resort for the Athenian upper class.

Since then it has become the preferred residential area of entrepreneurs, artists and statesmen. With a number of open green spaces and recreational sites like Kefalari and the Alsos Green, Kifissia offers a uniquely relaxing ambience." - athensattica.gr

OUTDOOR FUN

Travelling doesn't have to mean ditching your fitness routine. SEMIRAMIS provides excellent workout options: a fully equipped, air-conditioned gym (available 24 hours) and an outdoor swimming pool. Hotel's wellness facilities include a steam bath and massage rooms.


"The colourful swimming pool, shaped in one of Karim Rashid’s trademark fluid curves, is a unique creation. Miami-style glamour meets upscale design, with the flowing, landscaped sunbathing decks ideally arranged for daytime lounging. A mosaic water fountain adds a decadent touch, with guests soaking up the sun in the luxurious white sunbeds." - YES! Hotels
