“good hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I stayed there with my boyfriend and this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in ! The service is extraordinary, staff is very helpfull and so friendly and helped us tu enjoy our holiday. The hotel has free wi-fi, free bike rentals and free parking wich also was a grat plus. The rooms are clean and comfortable, our room overlooked the sea. The breakfast was very good with a great selection. You cross the road and you're right at the beach ! We would definitely stay at this hotel again as it is that good!

Room Tip: rooms with sea view are special

We booked via their website and asked for a sea view room and when we got there we had a very beautiful room with sea view, there was also a balcony. The room was very clean and spacious even if there was a 3rd bed and we were only 2. Bathroom was ok and clean. Italy usually has small bathrooms, this was a large bathroom with tub. Room has fridge, flat tv .. there is also a safe but I wonder why they didn't give us the key to use it .. so well we didn't use it. Front desk staff girls are friendly .. only a boy on duty in the evening was not friendly at all. Breakfast was very good. We will definitely stay here again. Spent 10 euro a day at the beach for 2 long-chairs and umbrella.

The staff was not very friendly at all. When I asked for a Hotel Brochure, I was given a rude answer in return for this question. When I asked about several offers displayed on the bulletin board for family discounts -- I was told they weren't valid anymore. Someone should go around the Hotel and remove outdated promotions! The room were not reasonably sized for the amount spent. On the positive -- great walking distance to the beach, the swimming pool was a good size, and the morning breakfast was excellent. Bottom Line: it was an Average experience.

We were in Rimini for a conference in September 2011 and chose to stay in a premium room in the Hotel Life overlooking Rimini’s beachfront.

The hotel itself was a quaint little hotel and the staff really went out of their way to help us at some really strange hours.

The room was reasonably sized and beautifully decorated with wooden floors and wonderful finishes. We were not particularly worried about where we were staying as we were spending very little time in the hotel as a result of the long hours spent at the conference.

This being said, it was a really great base, close to the Rimini Fair Grounds and convention centre. A big thanks goes out to Andreas, the night concierge for giving us a wonderfully warm welcome whenever we returned to the hotel late at night.

The buffet breakfasts were very nice and we would definitely stay in the hotel again if we returned to Rimini.

Well done and thanks for the great experience.

Room Tip: Makes sure you get a sea facing Premium room

I stayed here at the end of June, and both myself and my boyfriend were disappointed. At the time of booking we knew there were no more renovated rooms available, so we went with one of the older rooms. Knowing this we didn't have high hopes, but we were still disappointed with the condition of the room. There were patches of mold on the carpet and a few cracks in the wall. The AC didn't work for the first few days but it was fixed by one of the members of staff. We had a small balcony looking onto the seafront which was a plus. The pool was nice but once or twice became overcrowded with just a small amount of people. The beach is located in front of the hotel and there are a lot of facilities nearby for children.
One of the reasons we chose this hotel was for the fitness center, which was modern but with little choice of weights and machines. There were some light free weights, three cardio machines and a lat pull-down. The breakfast offered a good choice of food and beverages. Overall it wasn't good value for money, and the room could not have been up to the standards required of hotels.

Room Tip: Do not go for a room that has not been renovated. The room was in awful condition but the renovated...

We arrived late to find that all the rooms in the hotel were full at hotel life. The person on the desk could not speak any English and said we did not have a booking. After showing him the booking and booking receipt on our computer he told us that they did not receive the booking.
He then put us in a room the size of a shoe box even though we had booked a room for four people. When we complained about this he rang the owner who then turned up and told us that we had no booking.
At around 2am we finally put ourselves to bed in the shoe box. The owner said it was not her fault the hotel was fully booked. Next morning we went to check out and the owner said that she now had rooms for 4 people. She also said that she had the booking from booking.com for three nights. Somehow it had got lost in her in box.
What they did at Hotel Life is double book the rooms. They are dishonest, unfriendly, rude people and I would not recommend anyone to stay at their hotel. I am sure this is a poor business practice they have deployed more than once.
