    Reception offering limited information for people coming first time to the hotel. For instance half or full board were not offered but it was available for other guests not making the reservation through Booking. Lack of communications amongst the staff (permanent vs temporary staff) One of the restaurant maitre arrogant and not understanding the meaning of hospitality Restaurant not always available to the guests staying in the hotel A disco only to men located in one of the corner of the hotel

    Every night unbelievably loud beach party opposite of the hotel until 4 or 5 in the morning. We could not sleep at all. And this is first of all the purpose of a hotel, no? Breakfast until 11 what we really needed after those nights. But on sunday we had to leave at 10.30 because they needed the space for a management meeting. This they told us this at 10.25 and immediately removed the buffet. Spa was ridicolous small, they said for 6 persons, but there was space only for two in the sauna, two in the so called turkish bath and only 4 beds for rest. So they seem to expect that you arrange the changes with the other guests.

    First of all, I booked the 5 stars hotel using your esteemed service, however, I was shocked when they transferred us to another hotel, which i realized later that the other hotel is a 4 star hotel. I went to the reception telling them that my booking is the 5 stars one not the for stars and they even tried to manipulate me by showing me the picture of the hotel and it contains 2 buildings. After a long and tense conversation they agreed to transfer me to the 5 stars hotel. But by baying more !!!! I was tierd though and i pay cash !! .. Second of all, they gave us 2 nice rooms, yet one of the bathrooms was not working. I went down again to tell them the problem and one of the front desk came up with me to test the toilet they said sorry we cannot do anything now you have to sleep there and tomorrow we will change it for you, i agreed on all of that. Then tomorrow i went down again and they changed the room with broken toilet. Finally, when I went back to the hotel i asked the reception for my room key, they said the manager said that you I have to speak with him, I thought that he would compensate something or at least offer free drinks. The manager said you have deceived us you made us change the twin bed room instead of the king room, I told him that I might said the wrong room number but one of you came and saw the problem so you should know which one. And he said i will not give you the key until you sign that you will pay more. I refused to that and then he said either you pay more or ill call the police!! ( my lil daghuter was with me and she start to cry !!)) , i said to him call the police and i went and set down in the lobby. He thought that I would be scared and will pay by threatening me by the police yet I didn't do anything wrong. Then he brought the key and he said ill take the money from your credit card, i said to him if you take one cent without my authorization i am the one who is calling the police.

    An elegant hotel and beautiful stay
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Classic Double Room - Residenza P. Fellini
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The a la carte lunch menu at the beach restaurant didn't have much to it, it was just salads for €10-14 so nothing too exciting or filling after a morning on the beach. We got the brunch instead as we wanted some fish/meat, salad and fruit so we went inside to get it (service was very slow at that restaurant so we just did our own thing) but later discovered the brunch cost €40 each. We had almost finished eating the very nice food when the waitress came back to take our order :)

    We had a wonderful welcome at the hotel by the staff who were excellent, friendly and helpful throughout our short stay. We almost changed our booking so we could stay longer as we enjoyed our stay so much. The hotel is elegant, beautiful and oozes class and old school charm without being snobby or boisterous in any way. The breakfast was very good and the omelettes were especially good - made to order while you waited. We hope to come back!

    Great service; pity about the arrival!
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Classic Single Room - Residenza P. Fellini
    • Stayed 1 night

    1) Arrival at a famous and splendid five star hotel is ruined due to the fact that clients are directed not to the splendid FRONT entrance but to what amounts to the BACK door. It gives the impression that, probably, it's where the hotel's rubbish is collected. It's the worst "welcome" to a five star hotel I've ever experienced. Whose crazy idea was this? The reason seems to be the "park" that's been created at the front. No, no, no; really bad idea! Does the hotel manager at his private home ask his guests to arrive at the tradesman's entrance? I imagine not. A shock. Please find a way to let the guests arrive at the front door! 2) What is not obvious to non-Italians when booking is that there are two buildings: a) the Grand Hotel itself and b) the "Residenza Parco Fellini". Of course, when you book at the famous Grand Hotel with it's superb Fellini history you expect to stay in the hotel, NOT an annex to the hotel. So it was a doubly bad arrival for me: first the rear entrance, then "your room is in the annex"! Did Fellini arrive like that? I'm sure he didn't. Do other five star (or any-star) hotels do that)? Of course they don't. It really makes you wonder what some people in the "hospitality business" are thinking of. 3) On the first day I had lunch by the (excellent) swimming pool. Good setting, good service, reasonable prices. BUT... the chef's 'nouvelle cuisine' style presentation of the smoked salmon I had was terribly old-fashioned (as in 1960s-1970s); tiny portions in little bowls was lamentable. And the salmon was a cut much too thickly. A pity. The kind of poor - even pretentious -experience you would expect in a far inferior establishment. Italian cuisine is the best in the world. Please live up to that whoever does the swimming pool terrace lunches...

    1) All the people I encountered and the service they offered was excellent. 2) Breakfast excellent - five star! And staff actually smiling! Superb! 3) Lunch at the beach cafe (second day) very good, excellent service, good large tables, comfortable seating...

    The breakfast, although 1000% better than the last time I stayed at the hotel, could have had a variation as nothing changed for the week Also, most super luxury hotels have a station whereby eggs etc are cooked freshly - not here The coffee was never very hot & the hot chocolate was terrible The changing rooms by the pool had no inside locks Slightly disappointing that no dinners were being served outside until July 1st - especially as the weather during our stay was over 30 C degrees

    Haven't stayed at this hotel for many years & was delighted to see that it has kept its very high standards Basically, everything was excellent & worthy of a 5 star de luxe rating Location, staff & bedrooms were all excellent

    • Stayed 7 nights

    In the opposite of the hotel and our balcony there was a separate beach pub & restaurant (not belonging to the hotel) disturbing our visit with really loud music and other noise during many evenings very late. This was really negative point and should never be experienced in this kind of an elegant and expensive hotel. Music was also played occasionally very loudly in the breakfast time and we commented that to personnel during our stay. Our room charge included 2 bottles of water per day but it was not usually submitted to us without that we separately asked almost daily that was really unpleasent. Cleaning staff was doing their work very loudly that should not be experienced in luxury hotel. Breakfast was exactly the the same every Morning, we would have expected some changes.

    Hotel was really elegant, luxury and sophisticated in excellent location nearby the sea. Hotel garden was really wonderful and hotel area was safe and clean. All the customer services was available upon request with high expertise and knowledge. The content quality of the breakfast was excellent even it was the same every Morning.

    The only problem that I encountered was that while I had a great view over the beach, it also overlooked a bar that played loud music until the early hours of the morning at the weekend. I realise that this is out of the control of the hotel but it was nonetheless irritating.

    The property was ideally located just across from the beach and within walking distance of other restaurants and bars. All the facilities were great and the staff very attentive. The Grand is well named, because it is!

    I have been charged twice. First time pre authorization and the second time again the same amount plus extras for using spa and citytax. Personal was rough. My recommemdation to update the system of money withdrawl was leaved unattended((( "This is a policy of our hotel". I travel a lot, I live in a different hotels and the situation with Grand Hotel Rimini is unpleasant exeption. So, if you are going to spend here 7 days be ready to pay twice. Pre-authorisation sum is still blocked in my account (5 days passed).

    More funny than negative: To get our car, we were asked to pick the keys ourselves from 50 sets of keys. Those BMW keys were tempting!! Carpet is oddly frayed in the grand stair. But again, A TRULY WONDERFUL place.

    We loved this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and numerous. Nothing like walking into the lobby and seeing 7 people behind the counter (i counted because its such an unusual sight for me) and one customer in front. Breakfast was a generous buffet, there was plenty of space, including a garden and grand terraces so it didn't feel crowded at all. There are no bad rooms; even tho we ordered thru Booking.com, (usually you get the worst room of a given type) the room and the bathroom had a very nice view of the city, were well-sized, and, wow--you can control all the lights and the blinds from bedside!! Oh and the pool was great

    - The hotel is a bit dated: a weird mix of old furniture, high-tech appliances, ultra-modern (somewhat kitschy) elements of decor, vintage accessories... I wouldn't be able to pin it down to a certain style. It's a mix of old and contemporary, of dusty items and shiny-new pieces...

    Unfortunately, the splendor of a magnificent building becomes a bit of an irrelevance when the nearly surroundings are so at odds with it. Booming sound systems interfered with evening drinks on one evening, while, almost unbelievably, the sound of garage and techno music blasted into the place whilst having breakfast one morning. Cocktails were taken with the sound of the Rolling Stones belting out Jumping Jack Flash from the neighbouring bar/pub/club on another evening. And the private beach is so private that even the hotel's guests are hit with a surcharge of up to €85 per day. Make sure you check the options if considering booking because this was not obvious when we opted to book.

    This hotel is very grand, almost palatial, with lovely gardens and a great interior, decent rooms and some really intriguing artefacts.The beach is large, clean and spacious. The service provided by Arianna at evening drinks was also very good. She was an exception to a functional, almost regimented level of service, however.
