On Semiramis, Conde Nast Traveler notes that the hotel — a creation of interior architect and industrial designer Karim Rashid and art collector Dakis Joannou — is an “ode” to modern art:
“By day, sun umbrellas and the patterned tiles of the hotel pool bathe the patio in green, blue, and pink. By night, the hotel’s facade is illuminated in lime green and orange. The 52 rooms are blanketed in color and feature light-box art installations above the beds and translucent furniture in vibrant hues. Public areas at the Semiramis are equally colorful and eclectic and house gallery space for art exhibitions.”
Other colorful hotels on the list include The Saguaro (Palm Springs, California), MEININGER Hotel (Berlin, Germany), Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Zaandam (Zaandam, Netherlands), Inn at John O’Groats (John O’Groats, Scotland), Hotel Crayon (Paris, France) and Pantone Hotel (Brussels, Belgium).
