We have just returned from a week at the Semiramis. Overall this is a pleasant hotel with fabulous unobstructed views over the ocean.
The rooms were spotless and the maid service fab - the only place I have ever had to ask just the once for a second pillow!
All of the rooms are north facing so don't expect to be bathed in sunshine on the balcony. I did have problems sleeping despite being on the 11th floor - this was mostly due to the crashing waves on the rocks around the seawater swimming pool. The road which runs along the front of the hotel is also rather noisy.
The hotel is a good 20 to 30 minute walk from town - costing 3.50 euros in a cab. The walk involves a good deal of steps unless you wish to walk along the main road and uo through a tunnel. This is not possible after 8pm as the access door from the road is closed at 8pm.
The buffet restaurant had a good selection of food and the service was reasonable although there was rather too much noise from staff clearing used crockery and cutlery from tables.
Be sure to arrive well before breakfast time ends as the staff readily whip everything away as soon as 10.30 arrives.
This lower floor corridors smelled of damp and the decor is mostly dark blues and golds which make the corridors feel rather gloomy. Their are patches of stained carpet and some peeling paint and wallpaper.
The lobby is bright and clean but has a post communist clinical feel.
