"Enjoyed my stay."
Spent two nights here. Great staff, large double room with balcony, free safe, fridge. Several English news channels on TV, large bathroom, great breakfast, ten minute walk from train station, €8 plus tip in a taxi. Right on the main shopping entertainment strip. Endless restaurants and shops. Very safe locality. Two minute walk to beach. My only gripe was that the wifi was very poor. A hotel of this high caliber should have resolved this, but still a great place to stay, would return tomorrow.
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 Rimini… 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 Overall, if you want to enjoy a more formal few days in a clean, cared-for but outdated property and don't mind that occasional lapse of service, this is a great place to see how it used to be.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.
"Feels like a Fellini movie "
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
