Convenience and realiable catering etc. Inside is fine but the outside is in need of some tlc... beginning to look shabby compared to others in the area?
location was good family hotel so was very noisey
Other than being right accross from the beach and friendly staff, there is nothing that I would mention for the positives. Hotel noisy, room not very clean and tiny, old furniture, bathroom small and old. Requested parking spot upon arrival and glad we did. Parking is extremly small and cramped. Staff did manage to get us one spot. After parking could hardly, and I mean it, I could hardly get out of the car w/out hitting the next vehicle. For one night it was ok but would not spend a whole week there. Hotel's rating as 4 star has a lot to be desired...
I have a very bad experience with this hotel. I stayed there for 2 nights, and when I was checking out, the bill shows an additional euro60 charge from their resturant, but I didn't have any dinner there! And I said to the staff "I didn't take anything from mini-bar, either", she didn't response, so I highlighted it again, then her manager came up without any explanation or apologize. Even they correct the bill, he shouted at me, saying "Pay and go, otherwise I will kick you out in 2 mins!". It's totally unacceptable, especially this hotel is marked as 4 stars! I would never ever enter this hotel!
I had a great time here, the brekfast was very tasty and rooms were cosy and comfortable..this time my trip was a business trip but I would like to return with my family to have my holidays,the staff of the hotel already recommended me to visit the surroundings of rimini :san marino,san leo,verucchio, montescudo.. I would like to see them .. My stay was too short..
Clean rooms Rooms on the small side
clear,and good service food is not fit for Asian, and no water bottle for hot water
The breakfast time (available until 12:00noon) is excellent for people who like to lie in or wish to take a late breakfast.
very helpful staff, most comfortable bed so far, good location
The rooms were cosy, the breakfast choice was extensive and the hotel was in a good position. The spa bath in my room did not work.
Good position, free reserved parking and WiFi.
The hotel was clean, modern and well positioned for the beach and eating places in Rimini. Breakfast choice was excellent. I don't think I'd like to pay what they quote as full price unless it was right in the middle of the holiday season. But based on the offer through this site it was good value.
The hotel has an excellent location, the rooms were clean, the staff were friendly. Overall the hotel was very good value for money No
The location, the staff
Very nice hotel best location! But ask room with sea view! Breacfast was ok. Shower cabine was broken!
secure parking for the motorbike,a must on a europe tour,helpful staff
Very nice hotel in modern style in excellent position (in the first line near Sea) All was excellent !!! only swiming pool was in worse condition :-).
I absolutely adore this place.
Room is clean and the hotel is situated in the middle of major atractions. The internet is not free!!! I stayed to a 3 stars hotel a day before in Rimini (Hotel Biancamano) and it was free there and here to a 4 stars hotel I had to pay 4 euros for 2 hours.Also for the parking I had to pay 10 euros/day. I was expected from the hotel to have a private beach where not to pay for the bed, but it was impossible.
The accommodation was superb. The hotel is, in my opinion, brand new or redesigned. The location nearby sea and shopping is great. Staff is very helpful, friendly. I spent there beautiful time.
went to the beach and eat out in the many restaurants drinks quite expensive location very good never had a restaurant for evening meals
I liked seavew, big balcony and hotel location. I did not like very much that we took a bill for our room - 811 euros against 600 euros which were declared at Booking.com. I can not understand what was a "VIP-treatment for 180 euros" that we saw in the bill at morning 1-st day of our stay. At other days "VIp-treatment" has price 5 euros. So, Internet connection was auwful.
The hotel staff was excellent and the view of the sea from our room was very nice. Not a complaint but more of a disappointment that I could not get coffee at breakfast to take to my room without being requested to use room service.
It is a nice hotel. Very good breakfast, wide range of choice-quality and BIO products. Great pasticeria. The room was also nice, I took a room with seaside view and it was great. Not noisy. I have expected the SPA. I didn't see the SPA, so I have asked somebody in the last day and they told me the SPA is turn off, I have to let them know to turn it on.
The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The Hotel was well situated. Breakfast was well served and unobjectionable for Hotel category. Amenities were good. None that I can think off.
The beach couldn't be closer. Lots of restaurants available just round the corner. Even though it was good, it looked more to me like a 2 star-hotel rather than a 4 star-hotel
Nicely located close to beach. Breakfast could be better for this price. Free parking would make more sense. 15Euro per day in August is too high.
Nothing, due to the fact that the hotel have very low qualified personnel( no english speakers ), low quality of the room (dead mosquitos on the walls, the bed was got our of the wall) and very low quality of the breakfast (no hot breakfast, 1 kind of cheese and one kind of meat ) Everything should be improved.
It was ok but bog standard for a four star Some facilities unavailable
its location.however the most of the hotels in that area are near the sea!! -staff so unfriendly -it looks like the cheap flights where you have to pay for everything ( minibar , internet, parking , ... ) although it doesn't cost as cheap flights either. - at the morning they came to verify if you have use the minibar!! - breakfast was so normal not even at the level of 3 star hotel. - the design was less than normal as well , our room had the view of the another hotel WALL!! - overall i believe this hotel can have 2 stars and not more!
convient to beach and restaurants staff where not very friendly
Close to beach. Reception and outside area very nice. Views from balconies overlooking the beach Rooms were not furnished to a good standard. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. Staff speak very little English, if at all.
The hotels location is very good, The staffs skills in english is terrible, wich leads to big problems. The breakfast was only sweets and marmelades, The room is very small and is absolutley no four star hotel. The hotel is very nice looking on the outside as well as the lobby but the room is hostel-like an worn down.
Great staff, very clean rooms, good location...more than any expectation for that kind of money.
A pleasant hotel in a pleasant location. By normal european standards the hotel would warrant 3 stars not 4. Our room was clean, had what we required including a balcony. On the downside the hotel was bland inside and required more pictures and a bit of greenery particularly in the breakfast room .
Excellent hotel, excellent service! The location is near the beach and the main street for evenings out. The room is spacious, clean and has everything necessary. The bathroom is large and bright. There are no balconies.
Location of the hotel was good and the confort of the room was good.
Excelent location (central but quiet), 3 minutes walking from de beach; very clean; very safe; and most of all, staff very, very kind.
Quiet, close to beach but not noisy
Nice room, large bath, attentive staff, breakfast Jacuzzi not functional, TV not quite functional, no balcony
Room size and cleanliness Total lack of information in the rooms about ammenities and services such as breakfast times
The staff were very nice, the room was big, and the bed was comfortable. It was expensive.
Very modern Hotel

Very modern and nice hotel. Good place to stay. Good SPA zone. Swimming pools - external and Jacuzzi (internal). Underground car park. Close to the see and city centre. Access to SPA for adults only (indoor swimming pool - Jacuzzi).
Friendly and helpful people, very clean hotel. Excellent experience! n/a
Great breakfast, proximity to the train station and bus stop The wardrobe in the room was too small
Stayed here a couple of days. Rooms and its surroundings clean and tidy, The staff was very friendly and tourist informative. Breakfast was good. If I visit Rinini I would decide to go for the same Hotel.
We found this hotel to be excellent for a short stay in Rimini. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly and the decor is very stylish. The breakfasts are extremely good and it is well located for the station and the old town. Nothing, we were completely satisfied with all aspects of the hotel.
Helpful and polite service.
Location and staff support
The reception and breakfast staff were very friendly, the room was what we wanted with a corner balcony, very comfy bed and pillows, breakfast was fresh and a good selection of hot and cold.We had an excellent stay.
Very clean and Very friendly staff ! to close to the street, gareden on the top of hotel would be nice...
Its location was close to the railway station and therefore good for visiting other places in the area.
The staff was very helpful and kind. We arrived at 23.00 on Sunday and we were still able to order a light dinner in our rooms.
Make sure you are not in the annexe. It's not 5 star, it's not even 3 star. Stay in a renovated room in the main building. Be ready to pay EUR90 extra per day for the beach facilities !!!
Great location. Very friendly and professional staff. Beautiful hotel. Best experience in hotels in our 2 weeks in Italy.
The general ambiance of the hotel and staff - very friendly and courteous
The relaxed atmosphere and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. The charge made for the use of the beach facilities.
I enjoyed the whole experience of staying at the Grand Hotel, the staff were excellent as was the food. The room was spacious and comfortable with all ameineties.
Location perfect to start trips around Rimini or go to the beach Room need to be painted; breakfast as usual within Italy acceptable but not 5 stars; pool closed at the beginning of October; no sun chairs available
Hotel ambience overall was excellent. Meals were superb. Staff excellent. Pool facilities good, beach facilities excellent Had to upgrade to a Suite to get in to main hotel. In the suite, shower ran hot or cold - but never constant. Bath was tiny. 2nd TV not connected to the satellite which reduced pleasure of having a "lounge" area to relax in.
Good Breakfast. The hotel was like a building site when we arrivied, and was noisy during the day when we sat by the pool. The pool was dirty and not cleaned, this may have been that we came at the end of May and it was not in seaon. The drinks were very over-priced and it seems there is a brothel nightclub under the hotel! We woke to find several business cards on our car. The decor is somewhat shabby.
100 Euro for beach is excessive.
Very professional and friendly hotel staff. Good breakfast buffet. Nice swimming pool and nice location Additional price for the beach between €85 and €110 per room and per day, but this not a budget hotel and if one cannot afford the supplements, tips, ... of a first class hotel, one should not book one!
Garbage view was perfect. It's much more less then 3*
It is conveniently located just a few steps from the beach. Friendly staff, nice sea view from the room.
I liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the personnel, the location of the hotel and the excellent value for the budget. Unsatisfactory breakfast service, especially towards the end of breakfast time, which was indicated differently in the hotel materials and differently by the waitressing staff.
Lots of animation programs, very nice entertainment staff and nice swimming pool. Close to the beach. Small room, no real closet for clothes, limited number of staff speaking English, bad organized parking lot, bad shower in the bathroom..
Reception staff Breakfast, old hotel

Location and staff
Nothing, I left after one night It is e dirty, it is not 4 star, on the contrary it is no star, at least outside, it is not on the beach as it appears from the photos, but on the harbour
Has met all the requirements for our choice of this hotel for our 2 days' visit in Rimini and I express my comments in english, rather than italian, for I feel that they'll be more useful to non-italian visitors. The following criticisms are purely constructive and they do not detract anything from our stay at the Gallia Palace as there were many signs that the hotel had been refurbished recently ( we liked the quality & design of the wallpaper ) -the operating of the electronic bedroom access card and of the airconditioning control pannel required some time in getting used to but then they were O.K. I liked the fact that the A/C would switch-off when opening the balcony door !. -The glass pannel beside the shower is at least 10/15cm. too narrow as it does not prevent the water sprays from the shower flooding the bathroom's floor. -The TV set totally impeded the use of the bedroom's mirror ( a wall-mounted TV monitor would be better ).
The price was good and the swimming pool was very good, was private and got sun constantly. I stayed in a superior double and the room was to small, we didnt have a double bed just two single beds pushed together which came often came apart. The location is to far away from the bars
Location, cleanliness staff!!! reception!
The hotel is well located for the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. The hotel pool was small but convenient. Reception service on arrival as our booked room had been sold on and we were forced to pay an extra 25 euro per night.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was decent size and clean. Good value for money. Nice location. Will return some time again. Inflatables or ball games in the swimming pool. Although this was on one or two ocassions, it still causes some nuissance. The hotel has a security camera in the pool area so if could be better controlled.
The hotel was about 2 blocks from the beach and had its own reserved section on the beach with tables, chaises, and umbrellas. It was also about a 15 minute walk to downtown historic Rimini and shopping. The hotel itself was lovely, felt fresh and clean, and had very unique decor in the guest rooms. Each room had a large mural over the bed with a scene from Rimini and other artistic touches. It was a hotel room with personality and charm.
Nothing. The room was too small.Hotel is located in a small alley. Staff are rude. There was not even a box of facial tissue in the room!!
Quiet and even restful with easy access to the beach side areas and local restaurants, facilities etc. Evening bar facility service was somewhat lacking as when we asked for a gin & tonic on the first night they had none we were told and even red wine seem to be an issue.
It's the second time I stay in this hotel and I feel like confirming everything said the other time. It's indeed a lovely place where you can feel at home, have quiteness while being in the center, at a step from the beach, which is beautiful in winter too, it's very clean and very nice. Really enjoyed, will come back anytime I'll be coming around.
hotel staff - extra nice, very kind..hotel superclean, good position-not far from the sea beds weren´t so excellent how we had expected..but it is just one thing
Close to beach, shopping, food No parking was available. Had to use a Car Park two streets away and cost an extra 18 euro.
The room was comfortable and well designed & the staff were very helpful and friendly
The staff was very friendly and we really appreciated the free wireless internet service
Very clean and tidy hotel, which was in a quiet location and was good value for a 4 star hotel
My room was very clean and confortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good, with a wide choice. I'm very happy with my choice and I'll return at Sovrana again. I highly recommended it!
Very friendly staff. Room was regularly cleaned with fresh bedsheets and towels, plus the bath robes and fruit were a very nice touch. Breakfast was great, as was the evening meal. Though we booked a spacious tripple room, the room turn out to be a not too spacious double with a small side bed. However the beds were all comfortable so this slight issue was overlooked. One area that cannot be overlooked is the bathroom is far too small. You couldn't go to the toilet without putting your feet in the shower.
Good location, close to the beach. Breakfast very liesurely. Parking was not sufficient and some items on the menu were not available
noparking more parkinng
The staff ,especially Domenic, was great! I had booked this hotel b/c we wanted an inddor pool for our kids. There is a pool, but it is in the spa and more of a jacuzzi, but the staff was great and still afforded our kids the opportunity to swim on several occassions. It is a very clean, classico, hotel ina good location near the beach and marina. The restaurant was not open for dinner due to the time of year we were there but the breakfast was superb.... eggs, bacon, danish, fruit, cereal, meats, breads, fresh orange & carrot juice and even Prosecco! Plenty of restaurants nearby.
The staff were lovely, unobtrusive but attentive when needed.
We liked the position of the hotel and the staff were friendly and efficient
Great staff, superb breakfast and jolly comfortable rooms
A great hotel. The location, food and the staff make it a great place to stay . Have stayed here many times and it is always a pleasure .
Our room was upgraded,very comfortable, good location The front staff did not speak english very well.
Our fourth stay here. Very good hotel, great food and choice at breakfast and dinner. Made to feel very welcome by the staff and owners. Great location next to the beach and very close for shopping.
Breakfast internet access nowhere to be found
location & price poor-poor brekfast, small rooms (Superior Design Room) on last floor, 2 (!!!!) tabs of coffee for day (xa-xa)!!!!!!
exxcellent friendly staff, newly renovated rooms Internet did not function too well in the rooms
close to the beach. breakfest was excellent. the staff very helpful and supportive. things to do within walking distance or by bus. exercise equipment is at the beach not at the hotel. Internet is pay as you go. Rooms are two small when they offer you 3 person stay. They are just comfortable enough for two person.
The location of the hotel, very close to the beach, the special summer all inclusive package and the great food at the Amau restaurant in the hotel! No Internet services for the entire duaration of our stay.
good price, nice place near the beach
The rooms were contemporary, very clean & had everything we needed. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and it was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful There was only 1 mirror which was in the bathroom, could've done with a full length one in the bedroom
The location of the hotel was very good, close to the seaside, restaurants. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The internet should be free nowadays and the room's floor was not clean.
Location standard far below 4 star, the room was quite small, bathroom very basic, no bathtub
Location is perfect I think 4 stars is to high for the hotel. Small rooms, old bathrooms, etc. Need investment.
excellent location, excellent design, excellent staff
Excellent receptionist, modern design of the reception, location in the centre of Rimini. Incredibly difficult to arrive by car - even with a Sat Nav - we ended up breaking rules and going the wrong way up one way streets to get there. Bathroom was fun, but not practical, after showering and dressing, you went back into the bathroom and floor was still very wet from the shower.
Very trendy/conteporary hotel. We stayed on the 'Green Floor' which was great being from Ireland! Each floor has a different colour theme. Definitely a 'young' and 'trendy' hotel. Not for the older clientele
very good breafast, nice design, in city center, good reception Grounds and furniture of the room were very dusty, the decoration was not faithful to photos, no black sheets on beds what gives to the room an atmosphere of hospital, damage!! only one woman at the reception completely ignored our demands and our needs (very unpleasant behind a false smile!!), damage, otherwise the staff was very well, we were not able to keep cycles 3 hours more, after the check out (it is not very commercial because we stayed at 4 nights in this hotel)
The staff were exceptionally helpful, the room was very funky and modern and immaculately cleaned, it was cleaned twice one day, once in the morning and then again when we went out for dinner. It was an excellent location to view the city and authentic restaurants and not too far a walk to the seaside area. There wasn't much space for hanging clothes in the room and the air conditioning didn't work - it was quite hot even in May so would be stifling in the summer.
The sleeping room decoration, its design are impressive and in fashion, as for the rest of the hotel . The employee are really nice and customer oriented .Excellent breakfeast. Great experience.
Design is interesting to see, probably a good place to stay for conferences or so.. wireless connection didn't work, strange systen with the everyday codes for the internet.
Very well located for historical centre of Rimini. Friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfasts, luxurious bathroom (once we managed to work out how to operate the washbasin tap and close the blind in the "porthole" between the bedroom and the bathroom!) Air conditioning was noisy.
Welcoming stuff, smiley people, excellent contemporary design, stuff cleaned the bathroom two times per day. Rich breakfast too. The hotel is in the historical centre of Rimini. I stayed to a Suite and there was no bathrobe(!) That's a minus. Music in the corridor stays on high volume until 23.00, this isn't the best thing if you want to sleep early or just relax in silence!
Friendly helpful staff. Very clean and well kept. Clearly well managed.
Location is very good, very clean hotel with good breakfast Room is too small, bath tub is too small
Staff were very polite and helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was very good.
Coffee was the best I'd tasted in Italy. The photo's on Booking.com make the hotel look a lot posher/nicer than it actually is, especially for the price. Also the Booking.com web features gave the impression that the room I was booking was the last room available, when it clearly was not.
new hotel very hight standard considering the other hotels in rimini, in a quiet part of the downtown of marina di rimini nothing at all
The hotel was very comfortable and the room/public areas very clean. The use of the bikes free of charge was a bonus. Although it would help if the hotel staff could higher/lower the seats of the bikes, my husband is 6' 3" and suffered as a result of not been able to have a bike with a high enough seat. Breakfast was plentiful but not very imaginative, we were disappointed with a certain member of staff in the breakfast room, so much one day that I got up and left as I couldn't stand the noise (clatter) that he was making clearing away tables and it was obvious he had an attitude problem, all other members of staff were absolutely brilliant.
Very central location and the spotlessly clean. Very modern in a scandanavian way. The staff were very helpful. I think due to the time of year we went there was very little atmosphere, the bar area needs improved seating areas to sit and have a drink.
staff were extraordinary, absolutely excellent and knowledgeable about area, helpful with everything. breakfast buffet was also excellent.
The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and very approachable, Top rate for cleanliness. Good location, cafe, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance as are beach facilities, public transport nearby with railway and bus station within 15 minutes walk. Continental breakfast was more than adequate. While our stay was out of season, it would have been nice to have had the option of an evening meal, however this didn't pose a great problem as there are many restaurants near by.
Very clean hotel, good buffet breakfast. 5 minute walk to the beach!
