Welcome to the Grand Hotel Rimini, welcome to charm! The Grand Hotel Rimini, the five star deluxe hotel which has always been considered as the symbol of "La Dolce Vita" on the Adriatic Riviera, is a magnificent building with more than a 100 years history. Inaugurated in 1908, a national monument since 1984, the Grand Hotel Rimini has always welcome a large number of celebrities: the tenor Caruso, the Duce Mussolini, Gorbatchev, Bush Senior, Federico Fellini and his wife Giulietta Masina, Lady Diana, Christian Barnard, Tony Blair, Sharon Stone, Albert of Monaco, Edward of Windsor and the Dalai Lama, just to mention a few. With the taking over of the Batani family in 2007, major renovation works have been immediately started following the criteria imposed by the Italian Ministery of Fine Arts and today the Grand Hotel Rimini is back to its ancient splendour, especially the mythical Liberty facade. New, precious materials such as travertine, onyx and white marbles from northern Italy beautifully combine with the renovated original parquet flooring and Venetian flooring in the ancient ballrooms, in a beautiful harmony between old and new, history and present time. The ambitious project will be completed with the setting of the famous domes that went destroyed during the terrible fire that broke out in July 1920.The Grand Hotel Rimini is defined by its guests as a "magnificent oasis of tranquility." It is surrounded by a luxuriant garden of centennial pine trees, olive trees and flowers and stands just a few steps away from the private beach of golden sand, with a kids’ swimming-pool, restaurant-bar and a wellness centre, open in summer time.At just one kilometre from the hotel, the historical centre of Rimini is the heart of luxury shopping and night life. Culture and the arts are also very well represented thanks to major international art exhibitions organized every year inside Castelsismondo, the several castles dating back to the Malatesta seigniory (1500) and extraordinary Roman remains.High oeno-gastronomy is the specialty of the house. The hotel’s ancient ball rooms are the beautiful setting to "La Dolce Vita" restaurant where the Chef Claudio Di Bernardo and his brigade are proud to welcome you. Simple, natural and wholesome qualify the chef’s strong passion for good cuisine. In summertime, dinner is served on the magnificent terrace overlooking the sea and the gardens. The atmosphere is unique: the gentle sea breeze, the excellent cuisine, the elegant orchestra playing romantic music on the backdrop of the famous Liberty facade... Just like one of the famous scenes from Amarcord by the great film-maker Federico Fellini!

My husband and I stayed in the Grand for the first week in August. The hotel is beautiful, its elegant, historic and lives up to its "grand" name. When we arrived we discovered that we were being placed in a subsidiary building next to the hotel which had rooms but nothing else. We were a little disappointed but we were prepared to give it a go. We were left to find the building ourselves, were given our room key at the desk and had to make our own way to the room. It was 3 star at best with dirty towels left in the room and bathroom and the previous occupant's clothes still in the closet even though the room had a welcome card with our name on it! We went back to the main reception and asked to speak to the manager. She was rather non plussed and implied that we had booked the off site building of our own choice. This was clearly a nonsense but in fairness we were offered a suite for the first few days of our stay at no extra cost with the understanding that we would have to move as the room was already reserved. This was fair enough. The suite was lovely, our second room with a seaview also on the 4th floor was fine; clean, traditionally furnished. There was some noise from the beach front bars but with windows and shutters closed and the air con on, the volume was pretty subdued and didn't stop us sleeping. The pool is fine, small with very comfortable beds nearest to the actual pool side with ordinary loungers behind which were difficult to adjust to any other back height except reclining which was uncomfortable for reading. The gardens are lovely, the private beach is super also with a secure box to keep your valuables in which is handy. The breakfasts were fine- but no more than I would expect for a 5 star, the evening meals were fine also but menu rather limited, the 3 day per week buffet on the terrace was excellent though. The real downside of this hotel is the service. It is slow everywhere- non existent at the poolside,whilst at the beach we were given a number to call for beach service but the reception was so poor it was not fit for purpose. Ordering an aperitif before our meal took 3 reminders and half an hour before we were served, even an extra pillow at night was a half an hour wait. The housekeeping was excellent and the hotel is clean but the staff are rather distant- especially at reception. Such a shame because this could have been a wonderful stay if only the service had have been what I have received in other hotels in Italy and throughout Europe. Even a friendly good morning or good evening from reception when you leave or enter the hotel or come down for breakfast would be lovely. I'm glad I stayed but the aloofness of staff and general poor service would stop me from returning..

The hotel looks like 5 star outside, but inside it's old, damaged and non well-maintened. Bad smell in rooms, old (not antique, but simply old) furniture with dangerous parts which fell down, and are dangerous for kids, so our little son pinched his finger and scratched his leg. No coffee machine in a room, no kettle (you need to ask every time so they bring you "kettle set". No drinkable water in rooms. No hooks in bathrooms, so they put new fresh towels in a bidet. Hotel has a small SPA, but it's extra 170 euro per 2 hour!!! Kids room has an IKEA table and a set of damages toys. The facade of hotel is great, yes. That's all they have as a 5 star hotel. Breakfasts with the permanent set of dishes, no varietes, nothing special, like in any 3 star hotel. Door of rooms are thin and old, so you can hear everything in the hall and corridore during the night, and not only hear, but see the light which goes below the bottom of the door. The hotel belongs to a "group of hotels" of 2 hotels, which is managed by an unknown family company since 2007. My fault that I discovered this fact too late. P.S. It's not a beachfront hotel, to go to beach you need to cross 2 small streets. P.P.S. Funny thing: the main entrace to the copurtyars infront of hotel is always closed, so all people enter hotel through a gate for cars or gate for staff. The craziest thing. They have a super facade, but an ugly hotel.

Not luxury, very crowded, and loud music blasting at night until 3am. It might have been nice and classy, many years ago, but today very plain, and missing class. We were given a supposedly luxury room wit a sea view, but the window was very small, and the music so loud we could not sleep at all. We were changed room at 1.30 am, and next morning when we decided to leave because of the bad experience, the hotel manager made us pay a penalty for leaving. To be avoided.

my friend's parents were at the Grand Hotel in Rimini. One evening we were treated to dinner there. It was magnificent and I always had fond memories of it being like a palace. My wife and I had the opportunity to go there for a week at the end of June. I have always believed going back is a mistake and unfortunately in this case I was proven right. The hotel is now a 5 star luxury hotel but sadly the building is old and showing distinct signs of wear. The service in the hotel and the facilities were very average, the so called, spa and gym is a joke and the use of the gardens and outside terrace in the summer evenings is severely restricted due to the regular functions held there. There were small but annoying mistakes, like cups being removed and not replaced, and requests to reception fell most times on deaf ears. An email advising of our delayed arrival was not opened for reasons we were not told so that the booked taxi did not meet us at the station after a very long and tiring train journey. The restaurant was, however excellent, with good food and service in a beautiful dining room. The menu was a little bit limited and we did not, unfortunately, find out until too late that we could have asked for food off menu. The private beach is beautiful with an expensive buffet restaurant for lunch although the general service on the beach was almost non existent. We left 3 days early partly because we were unhappy but we also found out after we arrived that there was a concert next door on our last 3 nights with massive speakers outside our balcony and bedroom windows. Great for the teenagers but not so good if you wanted to hear yourselves talking at dinner or on the terrace afterwards.

I'd last stayed in this magnificent hotel in 1979 and 1980, enjoying two wonderful childhood holidays with my Mum and Grandparents, all now passed on. As such, it was a trip down memory lane to return to the Grand after all of these years, and with an element of trepidation too hoping that my childhood memories would stand up four decades later. Of course, I needn't have worried. Really nothing much has changed! The hotel is still classy, smart, immaculate and frankly beautiful. The staff still resplendant in their crisp uniforms, un-flappable, charming. As life has moved on, The Grand has kept up where it has needed to. A new restaurant extension (well, new in the mid-80's!) meant I thought the pool had become closer to the building, but a wander around the grand rooms of the Hotel with the charming Alessio (Maitre'D) showed some excellent old photographs which brought my memories flooding back. Rooms looked familiar but had added key touches such as plenty of power points, excellent a/c, smart rain showers. Our two balconies (room 311 which we adored) provided panoramic views across the Adriatic and over the Hotel grounds. My wife and I visited for three nights for complete relaxation whilst our son was away on a school trip to France, hence we'd gone for the excellent value full-board option which included use of the beach. We were allocated sun-beds, which came with helpful touches such as a lockable strong-box for valuables meaning we could happily enjoy the warm sea. Lunch at the beach club was plentiful and excellent. Breakfast and Dinner in the hotel were smart and charming affairs, Dinner especially so. We were wonderfully looked after by the restaurant team, with special praise for Cristina, Alessio and the Sommelier who were all just fantastic. When asked in the calm and classy surrounds of the restaurant if they could offer anything else I replied that I might quite like a cold beer. Moment later an ice-cold large draft Heineken glided across the floor on a silver tray. This is a hotel which 'gets' its guests and is happy to really please them which is, in itself, quite a different approach to many 5-star and luxury properties which I've been fortunate enough to visit over the years. The food was, of course, superb, and I especially appreciated the fact that the full board option (often limited in choice and downgraded in standard elsewhere) was drawn exactly from the full restaurant menu with substitutions offered if preferred. It was really first class, and the choices presented to us on each of our three nights were perfect. Having stayed in many hotels where conferences and events have often taken over to the detriment of other guests, I rather nervously spotted quite large events being set up whilst we were at The Grand, something of course to expect in the 'shoulder seasons' surrounding peak summer (we stayed in late June), but the scale and clever organisation of The Grand meant that we had absolutely no disruption from events at all. The band on one evening on the terrace merely added to our overall enjoyment! So, 42 years on, still wonderful. May The Grand never change, and I'll be back, much sooner this time.

I spent a week at the end of June - beginning of July in this hotel. This is a historic place. Lounges are dedicated to Fellini and his movie Amarcord. The building is beautiful, common areas are glamorous. I had a very spacious double room with balcony which was recently renovated. Beautiful interior design. Very high ceilings, some pieces of antique furniture, marble bathroom. At the same time, room had the most modern equipment (smart house) to operate the lights, air conditioning etc. Rooms are very clean. Beauty products are of very high quality. Hotel has a very large private beach which you have to pay separately. I could only recommend to hotel management to add some extra service for quite high price of beach bed: it would be nice if every time you come to the beach, some member of staff would accompany you to your place and help with bath towel. You could have added a free bottle of water and a welcome fruit plate... It would be nice touches highly appreciated by your guests. It was the only time, when i was on the beach (for 7 days), that I did not feel that value/money was correct. When I booked it in advance and saw the price, I expected an amazing service and got quite indifferent one instead, one towel per person, extra towel is charged separately... never had such restrictions in 5 star hotels. Hotel has an amazing restaurant. I had a chance to dinner there every night: service and food of Michelin star restaurant. Everything was impeccable. I would have highly recommend this hotel to people who appreciate la Dolce Vita. A unique experience.

I spent last weekend at the Grand Hotel with the families of my children including my grandson We had a fantastic time and the hotel made sure that we did not need o think of anyting! We had a baby cot in the room and our dog also was welcomed. We spend time in the the hotel pool, lots of time on the beach and at the baby pool on the beach. the buffet lunch on the beach was delicious and every elegant and also convenient. At dinner the staff was very attentive and we could order a special meal for the child ant that was brought ahead of the adult dinners so it made dining stress free. the hotel location is perfect and we all arrived easily by train and walked directly to the Hotel. The Hotel is so well positioned that we really did not leave the premises all weekend. Everybody already told me they want to come back next year

Iconic liberty style building dating from 1908 with wonderful original grand rooms and decor. First class service all round from reception restaurant and beach. Enormous private beach tranquil set just far enough away from the crowds. Lovely high quality food in the restaurants and excellent buffet breakfast.
