Semiramis mosaic swimming pool

Semiramis, an alternative and stylish hotel in Athens Greece is the result of Karim Rashid artistic impact fused with owner Dakis Joannou’s vision. The hotel is distinguished for its colours, positive energy and design. Its location is rather a surprise. Right in the centre of Athens!

Upon a reader's comment I was reminded that I should do a post on this hotel considering the lovely mosaic swimming pool. Thank you for reminding me.

I will be blogging again in September.

My dear friends, have a cool summer!

  2. I usually am not a fan of the modern look, but I will completely make exceptions for this! What a fantastic place, is it by the Plaka?

  3. One look and you know you are not in the United States! Why can't the U.S. do "funky"? This is so bold and fun. Love their use of plexiglass also.
