Pleasant hotel short walk from Rimini beach
Posted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
Hotel Stresa is pleasant, clean and the staff are friendly. It’s easy to find from Miramare station, 7 minute walk away. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Hotel is just 5 minute walk from Beach 128. Say you are staying at Hotel Stresa, and they will give you best price for sun loungers and umbrella. We paid 15 Euros per day, but you can knock this price down if you book up your spot for longer periods. Very nice beach, and didn't get overcrowded. Sea very warm. Hotel buffet breakfast is very good compared with other hotels I have stayed in in Europe, and served from 7-11am which is great if you wish to sleep a little longer. The room itself - it was clean and there was a large comfortable bed. The room however felt very cramped for two people. There was an a/c unit in the room, however early in the stay we didn't realise that one of the balcony doors MUST be closed for the a/c to work. We had the balcony doors open (as the a/c "wasn't working") and subsequently had a BAD night's sleep. Drunk teenagers shouting in the street at 5am, and it was just very hot - no chance of sleeping at all. We learned our lesson, and kept the balcony doors shut at night for the rest of the stay, and the a/c turned on. There is a fridge in the room, and we were provided 4 bottles of water every day of the stay which was very generous. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. I would recommend the hotel, but I'm equally sure you could find better places to stay where you won't feel so cramped.
