The price at euro 60 is appealing. A number of aspects were highly dissatisfactory : the breakfast buffet included is so poor that it is hard to believe one is in Italy where simple sandwich and coffee is widely available at low prices in most bars. We chose to go out for breakfast.
I gather this hotel in line with more Rimini hotels attempts to sell with half and full board. Based on the food i saw and Italy's otherwise excellent food options, this is to be avoided.
The wifi was patchy and raised with the reception, they argued it was complimentary so nothing should be expected from their advertisement hereof.
The location is within reach of one of the busyest beaches in the world. Dependent on your views of the hordes of people catered to, this could be one's version of living hell. On the location, note that if you drive the hotel is within a restricted zone (ZTL) which offers steep fines that transgres european borders easily, if you drive during restricted hours. This was not adviced on by the hotel, but something to seriously mind if arriving by car. There is very limited parking space at the hotel.
The hotel managed to give us a double-bed room when twinbed had been confirmed when booking and again upon arrival in the reception so we spent extra time after midnight changing room. This was a lower category room that the management failed to account for was cheaper in the final bill until raised by us. This followed an inflexibly upheld checkout time of 10 am which the hotel disingeniously claimed is typical for Italy.
I would not go back or recommend this hotel. I booked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and i am concerned how they became so glowing in their recommendations
