“Very good”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

It was a good experience. Weather was perfect. The hotel itself has history and you feel it from the moment you enter it. Service was fine. Staff was friendly and cooperative. I guess it is the best hotel around Rimini.

I really enjoyed everything about this wonderful beach resort hotel. The service is excellent... Young people with a great attitude! The breakfast is huge with everything you could possibly imagine! Our room was more than adequate & the bath room was top shelf! We stayed in the annex which is not part of the main hotel building but in an equally well manned building just behind. No beach views but nice views of the park from our small balcony. It's not about the room when you are in Rimini... It's all about the beach community!

We did not use the restaurant because there were too many great seafood restaurants along the beach front. But the bar service was excellent! Very plentiful sides are served when you order a simple glass of wine or beer.

Rick Steves got Rimini all wrong here. Im so glad we did not listen to him! He must have come in the middle of summer because Rimini is awesome in early September. It reminds me of beach towns when I was growing up! Lots of nice restaurants along a huge water front with very wide beaches. Great sand and lots of beach umbrellas on crowded beaches. The people love to walk the beaches from sunrise to sun set.

Do not miss visiting The Grand Hotel in Rimini in early September... I promise you will love it!

Room Tip: If you pick the annex, your rate is much lower and you get full use of all the great amenities! Plus...

We visited the Grand many years ago and with such fond memories we decided to return. We weren't disappointed! The reception staff were excellent and so helpful. The buffet lunch on the beach every day was slightly disappointing @ 30 euros a head and It got a bit monotonous so we chose the lighter menu on the beach. We had a car with us so went out to some fab restaurants in nearby resorts. The highlight of this hotel is the fabulous dinners on the patio every alternative evening and listening to some fab music. Very Italian. We will return.

I stayed in the Grand Hotel last November. It had been under new management for some time.

At the time it was a good hotel but not yet up to the required 5 star standard.

The wall of the small single room had some cracks and tiles of the wooden floor were coming off.

However service was very good and the quality of food was excellent.

Quiet location, excellent for off-season seminars.

Room Tip: Ask for " newly refurbished" rooms. Ask to see the room before moving in.

Good points: Friendly helpful staff. Great restaurant, breakfast and dinner high quality,fresh foods beautifully served. Beach bar also good, buffet €30 but cheaper options on offer e.g. melon and parma ham or mozzarella and tomato €12. Dinner on the terrace with band and dancing every second evening, very chic! Italian and French people get dressed up so very elegant people-watching.
Room quality good, air-con effective if a bit noisy, comfortable bed, good light exclusion, bathroom spacious and well equipped.
Bad points: We stayed in the annexe not the main hotel, wifi is charged extra, entrance lobby carpet very dirty and shabby, no flowers, bar unattended and shabby. Beach is charged between €80 and 110 per day!! Very expensive for what is a beach hotel! The hotel likes to project the image of exclusiveness and elegance but has a lot of package holiday clients who spoil the illusion. The chic dinner/dancing doesn't come off because small children are allowed to
use the dance area by their parents, and the adults give up and leave. Also on the second day of our 4 day stay a notice appeared in the elevator asking clients not to store large quantities of food and drink in their room and mini-bar!

We stayed at the Grand for 3 days, when we checked in we had booked a suite, the room we were given was a small room with cracks in the walls and leeks in the hard wood floors, this was to be an up grade?? after a long discussion with the manager at the front he said he gave us a special room, This was a upgrade, that had a large bedroom, and large bathtub, and bathroom,
and walk in closet...The room has decent air conditioning, but the main areas of the hotel do not..the hotel hallways are cracking and really in need of restoration!! The pool area and grounds are nice!

Room Tip: See all your room choices before you select one...get a beach view!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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! ... more   less
