Semiramis

48 Harilaou Trikoupi St.
Athens , Greece http://semiramis.athenshotels.it/

Dakis Joannou, Greek billionaire industrialist, founder of the DESTE Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art in Athens, and owner of the over-the-top Semiramis Hotel, has one of the most impressive private collections of contemporary art in the world. (He also has a 114-foot yacht, named Guilty, with an exterior designed and painted by Jeff Koons.) Designed by Karim Rashid, the 51-room property is an explosion of pop-art color (think glowing pink) accented by rotating pieces from Joannou’s collection.
