Reviewed September 8, 2012

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

We would like to replicate to this review because it contains a series of false information:

- Our is a breakfast buffet sweet, savory, biologic with a gluten-free corner. We believe that breakfast is one of our strengths and is therefore always carefully prepared
- Our wi-fi is free and always available in the hall and in the rooms
- Our hotel is not located in a restricted traffic area and you can easily access to the hotel entrance with the car in an area of loading and unloading. The hotel also has a garage 50 meters.
- At the customer was assegned a junior suite in the absence of a double room at the same rates and the check-out at 10.00 am as usual.

We believe that this negative review is due to the fact that, for organizational reasons, we couldn’t grant the late check out at 12.00 as desired and for which the guest has expressed a considerable disappointment.

Just returned from another wonderful holiday at the Hotel King. Staff very friendly as always and Mauro on top form nothing is to much trouble for him or his staff. Food was marvelous always fresh and loads of choice. Had front double room with balcony and beach only just a few minutes away, fabulous. Lift was out of action a few times and being on 3rd floor was a bit far to climb. Only down side was that dogs are now allowed into the restaurant which is not hygienic at all and a total no brainer.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel are by far the best ones although can be a bit noisey.

Perfectly good hotel in Rimini. We took the bus from the train station and if we had gotten off at the right stop then we prob would have been dropped off right at the hotel but we didn't! Rooms arenn't anything special, bit small, but adequate. The beach is literally across the road from the hotel. The whole street seems to be lined with hotels, bars and restaurants so there's loads to choose from. We had a ridiculously good burger (i know!) along with an insanely strong cocktail at the little place just beside it. And another restaurant maybe about four doors down with outdoor seating is also great. Breakfast is just what you want, and there's a foosball table out the front.

Just returned from a short break at the hotel King. Staff were very friendly and helpful,nothing too much trouble.
We had a double room with balcony which overlooks the main road and beach, bathroom was clean and functional,but shower a little on the small side,but useable. Breakfast was always fresh, with several choices on offer,good coffee.
Hotel situated on the main road, number 11 bus stops right outside for central Rimini stop no.14. Supermarket with reasonable prices just 2 doors down, we were b&b so this was handy as there was a fridge in room. All in all an excellent stay, and we are looking to return sometime soon.

Room Tip: ask for balcony so you get a sea view, buy bus tickets in advance, its cheaper

We returned yet again to this family friendly hotel situated a minute from the beautiful Rimini beach. Its central location set back from the busy Viale Vespucci makes it an ideal choice for visitors of all ages. The quality of the traditional italian food was as good as ever with the BBQ on the beach a popular weekly event. Rooms are clean, service is first class and Mauro and his staff always make it a holiday to remember whatever the time of year.
Definitely a hotel to visit, with all amenities within a short walk.

Charming, family-run hotel only two streets from the beach. We experienced great hospitality, and a staff that did everything to make us enjoy our stay.
We chose half-pension, and for a very reasonable amount of money, we had breakfast and eather lunch or dinner every day The meals were beyond description, and really showed off italian cousine. If you dont enjoy the food at this hotel, you need help! Besides we got free drinks and free beach with umbrellas and sunbeds.
Once a week there were dinner on the beach, and wow, we ate....and drank....
The rooms are nicely decorated, and the cleaning staff keep them nicely clean; and actually tidy. Travelling with three children, we were shocked to see the result of the cleaningservice. Everything was lined up...Are we coming back? Absolutely!

My daughter and I stayed at this Hotel in June and had a fantastic time!
Admittedly I was a little disappointed on arrival as the hotel appeared to be much older than it's photos on the internet, but by the second day I was won over....
The staff couldn't of been nicer, kinder or more helpful. The rooms were very clean and compact with an unexpected large TV.
The food was amazing....such a choice and very generous portions.
It's very central near bus stops, restaurants and bars and the beach is just accross the road.
I would recommend this hotel and hope to return there in the near future!
