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!

The hotel is cheap, tired, and low quality. I am offended they call is 5 star. What a load of baloney. You arrive and there is the huge I mean truck size air conditioner in the front entrance, the rooms are dated with cheap neo antique furniture. But not even a bottle of water on arrival, for US$600. They should visit some of the true 5 star hotels to get an idea of how it should be. The bedding was middle quality, the bath towels also, cheap common soap. The beach in Rimini is grey looking, the water less inviting, but this is not the hotels fault. Of course if you want to sit in a chair on the beach it is another $60. Your better off staying in a small 3 or 4 star place than this star-less joint.

We booked this stay as part of our honeymoon. On arrival the staff was very friendly and our tour operator had booked us an executive room since the classic rooms were a bit more old fashioned. This is a very big hotel so for the three nights we were there, there were also events. Everything seemed to be going well until the last morning. We went down to go to breakfast (for the first time since we are not usually in the mood for breakfast) , only to be told that breakfast was closed for normal hotel guests. In my opinion, if you know that you also have other guests staying, it's not that hard to reserve a spot for them at breakfast as well. And it's not like there was not enough space to do it. Instead of a normal apology, we were told by the staff that they "were sorry no one told us", and that if we wanted breakfast, we would have to order roomservice. Our room was nice, but only had a tiny table and two small chairs so this did not seem like an option for us. The elitist attitude towards event guests ruined this stay for us. This is not a cheap hotel so we expected to be treated better. For the money you pay here (especially for an executive room), you will be better off in a hotel where they are more friendly towards us "common folk". We will certainly come back to Rimini, but we will not be staying in this snooty hotel anymore.

This hotel should change service immediately. If you want to be offended go there. Nobody will help you or nobody will give you information including the manager itself. They have a huge mess in this hotel. Forget about getting someting to drink during your brekafast or call for bell boy. You must do everything by yourself. No information given by reception at all!!! Total luck of hospitality! Guest are not welcome by the team of this hotel!!! You can not even be sure what hotel is going to charge you. Nobody can give you information about what was in the BILL. Wrong staff, wrong management. One good thing about hotel is that kitchen is very good. Breakfast is large with huge diversity and dinner buffet is perfect. It a pity that such beautiful hotel is spoiled by its team!

Service not at the level of a luxury five-star hotel. We had to call twice to have our luggage and additional silverware delivered in the room. Glasses in the room were plastic disposable. Of course, the hotel was fully booked and of course COVID is still there, but Grand Hotel Fellini must find ways to stay Grand Hotel Fellini even in difficult times.

I came for a rest and asked for a sea view room which I was told would be extra. So I thought it may be nice to have. Wrong there is thumping music from 9pm to 1.45am and it vibrates through the room. When I complained the guy on reception wasn’t the slightest bit interested. He just said those rooms can be noisy - I am not understanding why I would want to pay extra to be kept awake all night and be so tired more of a torture. The food is average. The decor tired. The service comes with attitude. The restaurant has a buffet Thursday nights and it’s on on site thumping music just what you want whilst eating dinner so no conversation. So if you are looking for a nice relaxing place to chill this is not it. If you are looking for the Butlin’s of Blackpool then yes this is your place.
