We have spent a week staying at Hotel Parioli and really enjoyed it. We rented a car in Venice and drove here. The hotel is located about 2-3 blocks from the beach which makes it ideal for walking and finding very good restaurants. When we arrived they had upgraded our room to a one bedroom which included a basic kitchen. This was ideal for us since we would make our own breakfast and then journey out for the day exploring the area both near and far from Rimini. Our favourite trip was made twice to San Marino. I loved the country side with its vineyards and orchards. The Adriatic coast is beautiful and the water crystal clear! We were here in October so there weren't too many people but I bet the summer months are really hopping around here! Many of the shops were closed for the winter. The people that run the hotel are so very welcoming and helpful. There is room/maid service everyday. The rooms are very clean and well stocked. The only thing to keep in mind is the kitchen is sparsely stocked...no coffee pot (there is a kettle, though), one sharp knife, small glasses, etc. There is a Conad (grocery store) reasonably close. I would stay here again if we ever come back!
