The exterior of the hotel

The Semiramis chic hotel was designed by famous industrial designer Karim Rashid. The hotel sit only 10 minutes away from the business center of Athens. It is located at Kefalari square in a quite residential area and close-by shops and galleries. If you are like Dakis Joannou, the hotel owner a true modern art lover then I think a stay at this hotel is a must.

The 52-room hotel is an Athens’ design-inspired hotel, offering a new intimate alternative to modern travelers which focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art, and design. Set 340 meters above sea level, the hotel offers an oasis from the humidity of central Athens.

Cheap Long Distance International

I found out about 1019898 and 1010229, and you could save on your long distance and international phone calls to Asia. They have great rates. US interstate is 2c / minute, but the real deal I think is in the international rates. They do have a connection fee of 10 cents and 20 cents per call, but overall it still is cheaper than anything else I have found.
