Grand Hotel Rimini in Rimini, Italy
Filmmaker Federico Fellini is considered a master of dreamscapes, and it is no wonder he drew much of his inspiration from Grand Hotel Rimini. This romantic national monument and new member of the Select Hotels collection basks in fresh sea air in the town of Rimini on Italy's eastern coast. You will have a difficult time deciding which is most impressive - the property's 4,000 square meters of parkland, its guest rooms showcasing 18th century Venetian and French antiques, or the private hotel beach on the Adriatic coast.
With its historic sites, beautiful beaches and abundance of ways to play - sailing and windsurfing are at the top of the list - Grand Hotel Rimini captures the vibrant spirit of the region. Surrounding hills are dappled with castles and fortresses dating back to the Middle Ages, while tradition lives on in the town's medieval streets. From excellent Sangiovese wines to the Rimini Golf Club to the nearby Fellini Museum, there is truly something here for everyone.

Reviews for Grand Hotel Rimini
We took our family to this hotel. Very beautiful. Old school. The hotel and all its facilities are perfect for a beach family holiday. Fabulous breakfast where it can last a couple of hours just relaxing on the fabulous atmosphere where people are beautifully dressed and the sun is shining. The grand dinners on the terrace are really like being at a wedding. All dressed up in their best designer outfits - and the singer singing are as much a site to be seen. How special and magical is this place. The feeling to be here is priceless. Love it.

We love faded glamour, strolling through grand spaces that have clearly seen their best days some time ago. This hotel probably enjoyed that 50 years ago and really could do with a little more money being spent. Just remove the beige curtains would be a start and put warmer bulbs into the chandeliers (you could straighten them, too). Rimini is old school and there remains a long trousers and shoes rule for men at dinner. Some diners are suit and tie with all the women looking rather glamorous, for Riminiā¦ Service is OK, mostly friendly and efficient. Food is good, though again old-school. The dessert buffet was actually excellent. The hotel beach is huge with acres of space between sun loungers. Just watch out if you want to sit with friends. The beach captain has his list and no one sits together unless his map shows that. Which is inconvenient for friends that have travelled around the world to spend a week together at the hotel. Despite the acres of space, he was having none of it. Unhelpful. The area is old fashioned, it has some cheap local options and the adverts blaring out across the beach from speakers next door don't really help. It would also be in everyone's interest if the beach staff actually offered drinks to their guests; money for the hotel and pleasure for their guests. That doesn't appear to happen either. Overall, if you want to enjoy a more formal few days in a clean, cared-for but outdated property and don't mind that occasional lapse of service, this is a great place to see how it used to be.

Had amazing 4 day break. Everything was wonderful food service cleanliness helpfulness. Can t wait to visit again. If you want a hotel with real old fashioned standards The Grand Hotel is for you. Everyone from The Manager to the beach staff are there to make your stay perfect. Well done.
Was there as a stop during a business trip. I just had a long transoceanic flight, and a couple of hours of train. So probably not in the best shape. When I arrived at the hotel, there was some kind of rotary club event, with people extremely well dressed. Ferrari were parked outside. So , when I asked the reception for a restaurant to have dinner, I was suggested a cheap restaurant, and I was mildly offended Apart from that the hotel is very nice, old fashion, with a great view on the sea
Stayed in this hotel during a board meeting. It's filled with history and the environment is amazing. The room I was given was however a miniature single room. Do make sure that you get a room towards the garden and ensure that it is spatious. I would assume that rooms are very different in layout at this hotel. The food in the hotel is amazing, the staff is super-professional and I am left only with good memories.
