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
I have stayed in this hotel already when Tripadvisor had not even been founded. I saw it in different stages, from run-down through moderate refurbishing to its wonderful state of today. It is certainly a challenge to find the right balance between keeping the very special atmosphere of a building which is more than 100 years old and the guest-requirements of today. In my eyes, the Grand Hotel management has been perfectly successful in meeting both expectations: Those of people who expect something really special and might want to feel like in a movie (i.e. Budapest Hotel?), and those of people who simply want a luxury stay and a good Wifi-connection. People who prefer the charme of an old, story-telling building will be happy in the main building. People who prefer it more modern, may prefer the adjacent "Residenzia", a part of the Grand Hotel. What impressed me again during our last stay is not only the architecture and special Charisma of the building, but the ongoing professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Also the breakfast was absolutely stunning, with many fresh product from the hotel group's own Fattoria Batani. All over all, among the many many places I have stayed in during more than 3.000 hotel nights in my life - this is still: Simply the Best.

We arrived at 9.15 pm owing to BA cancelling our original flight. We had four rooms booked. Check in was very speedy and we were advised that restaurant would be shutting quite soon if we wanted to dine Quick turn around by us all. Staff in restaurant could not do enough for us and the food was superb. Courses between courses. Each one of us enjoyed our meal. We were the last to leave as the food was so good. Rooms very comfortable and spacious. All staff were so helpful all the time Breakfast was superb. Plenty of choice. Drinks were a bit pricey but you are in a high class hotel. Beautiful grounds and pool which we did not have time to explore. I could go on....
Walking along the beach boardwalk in evening, we came across this grand hotel because of the lovely music coming from within the surrounding iron fence. From the outside it looked absolutely stunning! We made a dinner reservation and returned the next night. The garden grounds are so beautiful so we wandered around a bit and took some photos. From the moment we entered the lobby, we were immediately impressed. Everything is just so fancy and so GRAND! My husband was wearing shorts which turns out are not allowed in the restaurant so while he returned to our hotel room to change, I waited by the pool with our daughter. What a pool! Gorgeous! Once he was back, they escorted us into the dining room and seated us. It's not a cheap menu and not the best meal we had in Italy, but nonetheless, I wouldn't have missed the experience for anything because the service is so good, the ambience is fantastic, and the whole night was such a treat! My only regret is that we didn't know about this hotel before we came so we could have booked a room here as well! Frankly I'm surprised it is not ranked as #1 hotel in Rimini because it is truly a very special property and I can't imagine anywhere nicer to stay!

Yes The Grand Hotel in Rimini looks grand when you enter. The ceilings are high and candelabras big. The lobby is elegant and smart. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms.... well thats another story. The wooden floors have lost their varnish, the walls are scruffy in places, the bathrooms are old and tired. I was told they had upgraded me from a room in their block next door to the main building but the bathroom in the first room they showed me was so "60's" that I felt I was staying in some hostel. They offered me to view another room similar of a junior suite for an extra E300 or the two nights. I went with the alternative room. Here the bathroom was a bit better although there was no curtain or glass door meaning that most of the water from shower was allover the bathroom floor, not nice at all. I looked for an electric plug and I looked everywhere but there was not even one. I needed at least 4 so I called house keeping that found the one and only plug in the room which was being used for the TV and put in an extension cable. I just wondered what all the people before me had done. I ate in the hotel both nights and had lovely meals. Breakfast was good too with an excellent choice and friendly staff. Saying all this, the place was spotlessly clean. Would I return? Actually not sure as when I originally looked I couldn't find any hotel that I actually fancied staying in. I must compliment a lovely lady on the reception called Maria. I had so many requests and she dealt with them all with a smile - thanks Maria

My room with a small balcony and maginificent view of the garden couldnâ€™t get any better. Breakfast buffet is very complete. We tried one of the restaurant in the hotel the food and service was excellent. I definitely recommend this hotel if you plan to stay in Rimini.
