The Margi

is a luxury boutique hotel in Vouliagmeni, the upscale centre of the Athenian Riviera. The rooms and suites reflect the historical nature of Athens through stylish antique artworks and furnishings.

The

Semiramis City Hotel

is a refreshing break from the monochrome décor that predominates in Greek luxury hotels. The design guru behind the bold bright colors is none other than Karim Rashid. His designs are all at once futuristic, organic, high-tech and psychedelic.

Although the hotel is literally new to Athens, there is another meaning to its name. The building was originally the Olympic Palace and when it was gutted to make way for the New Hotel, all the materials were salvaged and reincorporated into the new-fangled hotel in innovative ways. The result is stylish, comfortable and refreshing.
