Located in a quiet Athenian suburb this hotel was designed down to the last detail by Karim Rashid who is regarded as the best designer of his generation with over 300 awards to his name. The idea was to create a vibrant, functional and relaxing space. Lollypop colours create a childlike aesthetic that is stimulating to be around. A cyclone of colour and style, it is like staying inside a very gay rainbow – in a good way. The hotel houses a magnificent collection of contemporary art which is rotated on a biannual basis. You can spend some time looking at work by artists such as Damien Hirst, Laura Owens and Christopher Wool. There is a lively restaurant, café and bar where you can hang out with a popular local crowd. There is a modern gym and pool and easy access, by train, to Athens where you can explore the famous Greek culture both ancient and modern.
