“Details make all the difference”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We stayed at the Semiramis for the second time this weekend. The first time we were there as a couple in a standard room. This time we stayed with our 1.5-year-old in one of the penthouse suites, which is the only room type suitable for a couple with one or two kids.

Overall our stay was great, with awesome food, friendly/polite/helpful service and an amazing atmosphere if the design of the hotel is of one's taste.

The only minuses of this, otherwise great, hotel are the following:
- The swimming pool closes at 19h00, as the pool area is then converted into a bar/restaurant. Not great, especially if you have a toddler who loves water. On the plus side, early in the afternoon the sun moves to the other side of the hotel, so the pool area is shaded by the building. This is good if you have young children like we do, but I guess not so great if you don't.
- The wireless internet connection was touch and go for the duration of our two-day stay. Signal strength fluctuated continuously and my iPad kept disconnecting and reconnecting all the time. This is something the hotel must address.
- The penthouse suites are great in terms of space, layout, amenities etc., but the air con was too noisy, even in the lowest fan setting, especially in the living room area.
- There was a constant humming noise with a slight vibration, most probably coming from the central unit of the building's air con system.
- Our room was at at the front of the hotel, which is on a very busy street of the area. Even double glazing could not keep out the noise of passing cars and motorbikes.
- Room service was much slower than expected (e.g. about 30mins to bring up two coffees and a juice)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the pool (applies for all room categories). It...

Stayed here for one night recently on a work trip and was impressed by the place. Good location close to a few bars and resteraunts and nice helpful atmosphere in the hotel.

Room was ok size but clean and modern. Free WiFi good and air conditioning worked well which is a must!

Pool area good and a pleasant spot to eat breakfast of a morning. Would recommend the place.

Very convenient location to restaurants and boutiques, the property is modern, spacious with natural light. A low rise building so windows open which is a pleasant change! The restaurant is spacious with a good buffet breakfast, gym is small with Cybex equipment and for open 24 hours and the pool looked great!, Good in room complimentary toiletries. great service and the staff are very helpful.

Room Tip: I stayed at the end of the corridor, room on the side of the property

I spent 4 weeks in this hotel and I can say that it's quite different from a common hotel. First of all, it's pink and gree everywhere! The design is quite weird and either you love it or you hate it.
The rooms are tinny, but with nice balconies.
The breakfast and the room service is just ok, with a small variety of things that you can try.
The laundry service is outsourced, which means that your clothes have to go outside the hotel facilities and they are returned during the next evening. If it's raining, your clothes will probably get wet.
The hotel can also be noisy, due to the number of parties that they normally have in the ground floor.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back and you will have a room with a pool view and with less noise in the even...

funky and modernm with pink, lime and organe everywhere plus rooms with no numbers!

I stayed three nights in Semiramis, and didn't regret. The location is perfect if want to avoid the crowd of the city, and get to know also the residental area of Athens. The decor of the rooms are funny and modern, however the glasswall of the bathroom is not very practical if stay in more than one person. The quality of the food was very nice, the room service was excellent. Would return definitely.
