Reviewed 4 November 2012

Room: not too large but made in a very funny design. Very bright colors, lots of bright green and pink. Spotlessly clean. Certainly not everyone will like it. I did like it as it was very unusual. Feels almost like a children room. There are no room numbers on the doors, so every room had a special sign. Certainly something very innovative and cute in some way. I forgot twice where my room was as I only had a sign so I got lost twice but actually found it amusing.

Reception and service: friendly and welcoming. One can see that the hotel is trying hard to provide a top service.

Overall: this is a very special hotel, and I strongly recommend at least to try it. Also, given the price, it's a good value for money.

Entering this hotel is a true experience: all those colors, shapes and funny details. Besides there are great art works everywhere. The rooms are well equipped and meet all expectations. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great place to relax when visiting the far more busy old centre.

This was our first trip in Athens, so picking a hotel for us was very difficult because we had no clue! We got lucky!The Hotel was great, bright colours everywhere and the atmosphere was very friendly.I can say enough about the staff..they were terrific. From the moment we walked in the door until the time they hailed a cab for us to leave, we were treated like we were valued customers. The friendliness, warmth, caring and concern that were showed to us was like nothing I have ever seen in all my travels..that's saying a lot.

Well done and will definitely stay again

Eccentric, different and absolutely modern! Really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are not very big but clean and comfortable in bright colours. There is a variety of breakfast dishes. It is situated very close to the centre of Kifisia which is a lovely area in Athens and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Great hotel as long as you enjoy something different and bright color schemes. Really good end-to-end service from check in to check out, polite, friendly and effective. Great breakfast, room service and amazing cocktails. Walking distance from the center of Kifisia district with shops, cafes and restaurants.

Only downsides are the distance from Athens center. However, there is a metro station about 20mins away on foot. Also, the beds are rather soft, so not really good if you have back problems.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of hotel have a view of the local park, but there is a bit of noise from the road...

This is just a great super trendy hotel. Yes, it has crazy colors and funny furniture which to be honest I enjoyed very much as a change from all the typical business hotels who seem to be all alike. Everything inside is custom designed and very well made. I loved also the trendy electronic displays and the lighting schemes of the room. It also has a great pool, super friendly staff and a simply superb breakfast. Highly recommended!

Semiramis was the first YES! Hotel to say YES to bold design, superior luxury and exceptional service.
