Built in the early part of the last century and located in the heart of a stunning park overlooking the Adriatic Sea, the Grand Hotel Rimini is universally considered one of the most prestigious hotels on the Italian Riviera.
Lured by the magical atmosphere that permeates its rooms, artists and filmmakers have chosen the Grand Hotel as the backdrop for several films. In fact, the unforgettable Italian director Federico Fellini shot here his famous film Amarcord. Fellini was a full-time guest of the hotel for many years. In recognition, one of its best accommodations is called the “Fellini Suite”.
For its beachfront location, decor and luxurious atmosphere, the Grand Hotel stands as an ideal destination for an exclusive holiday. Its Liberty façade, nearly two hundred rooms, exotic gardens, extensive terraces, and first-class restaurant, have made the Grand Hotel Rimini one of the most charming places to stay in all of Italy.

Since opening in 1908, the hotel stood out as one of the major attractions of the Mediterranean, quickly becoming an exclusive holiday destination for the jet set of the Belle Epoque. A fire destroyed the original building in 1920 and then it was bombed during World War II, but none of these dramatic passages diminished its fame. Rather, the historical events and frequent renovations made the hotel even more fascinating. In 1994, the building was declared a National Monument and placed under the protection of Italy’s Ministry of Fine Arts.
The Grand Hotel Rimini has 117 rooms, including three Royal suites and nine junior suites, all fitted with elegance and refinement. With an exquisite décor, the rooms are real works of art.

This perfect combination of luxury and modernity is also reserved for guests of the Residenza Parco Fellini, adjacent to the main hotel building, with 51 extra rooms —including three junior suites— decorated in neoclassical style and equipped with cutting edge technology.

Decorated in Liberty style and adorned with flamboyant Venetian chandeliers and frescoed ceilings, La Dolce Vita has several rooms that can accommodate up to 600 diners.
