of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
My wife and I stayed three nights this October. The hotel is clearly a luxury hotel but its age shows despite large and well equipped bedrooms and bathrooms. The staff is pleasant and helpful and the hotel is well located, pretty much "on the beach" and close to the centre of town. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and the main restaurant absolutely excellent but there is no real bar and the entrance is more like a station waiting room than a warm and comfortable lounge.
"Very nice old style hotel"
I stayed 4 nights in October to attend a fair , hotel is really deluxe...very big rooms good breakfast and nice staff. Located in the heart of Rimini where there is the Main Street with shapes and restaurants
"I expected much more"
If you go to 5-star hotel, you expect everything to be perfect. At first I was amazed because the hotel from the outside and inside looked absolutely beautiful. I got a spacious, lovely room with a balcony from which I could see the sea. Food and service were also excellent. But my whole stay was ruined by noises coming from different rooms. It seemed to me that walls are made out of paper because I could hear every single word my neighbors were saying! It was very annoying especially in the evenings. But I was not the worst thing. During my last night it was a party on the courtyard and participant were loudly enjoying themselves till 2 A.M. Also in the room above mine, somebody was stumping their feet so hardly that everything in my room was moving. In my opinion it was absolutely unacceptable as so during my stays at the hotels I value quiet the most.
"Grand old place ageing in despair"
I arrived with high expectations, but was let down by the way this hotel has been left to age without any compassion. The arrival by car is not indicated, the parking is embarrassing (note that parking near reception is reserved to some mistery cars that never appeared), registering at reception is OK and breakfast is excellent. The rooms are really strange: they have wooden floors and high ceilings, random furniture from the 1920s, hard mattresses and soft pillows and baths that were surely refurbished by Dr. Frankenstein on crack. The "park" is an embrarassment and the pool is really small.
"Excellent hotel, but oh so noisy"
Fantastic hotel and superb beach. Staff very helpful. However this hotel is extremely noisy due to outside bars and public events ground just outside the hotel. We were told the noise finishes at midnight - be warned, this is not true. On Saturday night noise so loud we could feel the vibration in our room, this went onto about 4/5am. Other nights noise less but still went onto about 2.30am. If you are looking for an excellent hotel in a vibrant central position this hotel ticks the box, if looking for a good nights sleep - give it a miss!
