Hotel Niagara Rimini3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Excellent small family owned hotel in the old Durres style. At one time this area was all small low buildings with lots of trees. Hotel Niagara is clean. Excellent food, excellent responsive staff. Gotta try their house raki you won't be disappointed. The beach is perfect for families. Sandy and clear. There is nightlife all around if that is what you want. Can't say enough about the Hotel Niagara! Far exceeded our expectations!
Travelling alone on business in Rimini I booked based on a tight budget and found myself at this little gem of a hotel. Tucked away in a quiet area between the old city and the beach (and an easy walk from both) this place is clean, well run and comfortable if basic. The breakfast was good value; not a banquet but just what was required to start the day well. My host, Antonio, makes excellent coffee too! Nothing was too much trouble and the room was immaculately clean. Just what was needed and at a great price. Highly recommended.
Nothing has been invested in this hotel for decades. You'll be greeted with the smell of cigarettes as the owner smokes outside the entrance, and the overflowing ashtray wasn't emptied during the whole of my stay. Everything was old, dark, and depressing, plus the bedroom carpet was worn so much and greasy, that in places it resembled vinyl more than carpet. Saying that, it was spacious and warm, and the towels and sheets were clean. The bathroom is laughable, but not in a good way. I come in at 193cm and could not use any of the facilities. By that I mean the shower, toilet, and bidet - it just was too small!! Not only, it was seriously freezing and old. The tiles were cracked and the grouting stained. Signs of mould were on every wall. But now for the good part. What can you expect for 25 euros a night, yes, you read right, 12.50 euros a head! The value is fantastic. The location is unbeatable as you are less than a 5 minute stroll to the beach, 10 minutes to the harbour, and ten minutes to the old town centre. If you are tiny, on a budget, and don't mind washing in arctic temperatures, this hotel will suit you perfectly. Would I use it again? If money was scarce, most definitely.
Nice place to take a nap and go further. Close to the station and the sea. Quite easy to get here. The nearby is absolutely calm and idyllic. The room was tidy, has AC, but it was cold during the night. The staff is helpful and easygoing. Good value for the money.
I really liked this hotel. It is situated next to a big green park, so it's quiet and the air is fresh. The room was clean and cosy. The owner is really lovely and he gave me good directions for the area. The internet is very fast and the breakfast is surprisingly good. Highly recommended!
Stayed for two nights during a recent business trip. Excellent rooms, friendly staff, big restaurant, can't do enough for you when you stay. They also have off street parking if you are driving and you will find its a quick walk to the water where you can enjoy an evening stroll and find many good places to eat or have a drink.
Stayed here for two nights with a gap in the middle whilst I visited San Marino for the night. Fairly easy to find - head out of the train station, down via Roma and then through the park, under the train tracks and second right, it's about a 15 minute stroll. Staff friendly and helpful, room was fairly compact with small bathroom but perfect for my needs. Wifi strong enough to Skype on and reliable. Breakfast is limited but very good! Only negative is that I left at 6am Friday to catch an early train and I wasn't given the chance to take some breakfast which opened at 7am, despite asking. This was the only negative however.
Great value for the price. Clean rooms, small bathroom. People in hotel were very friendly and helpful (tips for good restaurant, thing to do, discount for the beach,...). If you want good hotel for a good price, this is your hotel :)
We came to Italy to visit Meldola War Cemetery just outside the town of town of Forli. Non of the major tourist companies wanted or did trips to Italy. So we booked through Ryanair for the flights to Bologna and got a hotel off the internet. We looked for a reasonable hotel in the sea side resort of Rimini of which there are loads. And boy we found a very good locally owned Hotel run by two brothers Antonio and Casper called the Hotel Nagara. Transfer We hired a mini bus company to pick us up from Bologna airport (as no flights go to Rimini from UK) which is about 80 kilometers form Rimini at a cost of 150 euros per couple. Not cheap. The train might be cheaper. The transfer time was 1 hour 30 minutes each way. Hotel Location Its set back about 2 hundred metres off the main road down on a slight incline. Very quite. The road facing the hotel front leads directly to the beach which is behind the Hotels on the main road. Hotel It has about 16 rooms, a small bar, a small lounge and restaurant area for breakfasts. Rooms They vary in size slightly but will have a double or two singles. Our party had three rooms and each was different in its own little way. I don't know why but our bedding for all three rooms was changed every other day as was the towels. The front rooms have a balcony the rear rooms don't. The views at the rear rooms are of other hotels, The front room view is a street view. There is a TV but you can only get Italian TV (no english) There are a few sockets in the rooms but remember they are Italian 3 pin. Some will take the european round pin plug put in our case only one of them did. No Iron, No hair dryer, No tea making facilities. Bathroom The bathroom has a toilet, bidet, sink and shower. But the whole bathroom is a wet room. There is a curtain inside that pulls and separates the toilet and sink so that they don't get wet. But remember to close the door as the door is part of the wet room and keeps water from running into the bed room. Wd had no bother with it and its better than those showers we have used in Greece and the Greek islands, if you travel a lot you will know what I mean. Lift There is a small lift here but it only has two floors. But is good to put your luggage in and then walk the stairs. The Bar It serves Bottle beers (3 euros for Becks) and wine, spirits but it is not a lively bar. We only had two drinks here as we were out most of the time. Reception Antonio the owner is here most times and speaks quite good english and is a very helpful person. He helped us buy train tickets to Forli and directed us to good places to eat and drink plus rang the taxi company for our return trip to Bologna airport. Plus he is a font of knowledge so dont be afraid to speak with him about anything. If Antonio isnt here his brother Casper is and boy he's a character to behold. Night life For the young and energetic there is night clubs and bars for that age group potted about. For the middle age group there a Zillions of bars and cafes and restaurants everywhere, you cant go wrong here and the meals are very reasonable too ranging from 5 euros for a simple pizza to 42 euros for lobster. We paid on average between the 6 of us about 15 to 18 Euros each and that include wine with the meals Drinks around Rimini You can pay 4 to 5 euros for a medium beer (a pint), 3 euros for a small beer (1/2 pint) or from 8 to 10 euros for a Litre (2 pints) Beer in the mini markets can be as little as 1 euro for Becks or 75 cents for a pint of local beer. Yes you did here me right. The local CONAD supermarket was selling local beer for 75 cents a pint bottle. We bought 6 pints of a beer called Moriatti for 3.8 Euros and it's 4.4 percent and really good tasting. Wine can be from 6 to 20 euros in restaurants but generally the local wine is about 8 to 9 euros a litre. Then again at CONAD supermarket we paid 1.9 euros for a liter of MERLOT The Beach Oh my God its huge! 15 kilometers in length. The beach is a pay to use beach as are most beaches in Italy. The beaches are numbered 1 through to 90. On average you will pay 10 Euros for 2 beds and an umbrella. If you are going onto the beach for the whole of your holidays negotiate a weekly price as they will reduce the amount for long staying customers. There is a free beach at No 1 to 2 but there are no beds or umbrellas here. Dont worry about the kids the sand is proper sand and there are lifeguards every 70 meters or so. Also on the beach are play areas for the kids. Nearly every beach number has a kids play area, beach ball/football nets, etc and a bar between every two beaches. The prices at these beach bars are very good. We paid 4 euros for a pint, the Girls paid 12 euros for a bottle of prosecco. 5 euros for a Pizza. The Old Town You just have to go there to experience the town with its small streets, piazzas and shops and restaurants and ice cream parlours, historical sites etc. It is absolutely amazing. I cannot do it justice. Just go and experience it. Its totally different at night as it is during the day Walks Turn left outside the hotel and it leads to the local park. Turn left and this park goes all the way up to Augusto's Arch which is near the old Town centre. Cycling everywhere with local cycle drop and pickup points, call in at the tourist information centres for this. There a a few dotted around the place one is at the Railway station. All in all I just cannot believe that the major british tourist companies have neglected this resort. Rimini is brilliant.
We paid 20 € for a two person room for one night, really cheap and that's what it lived up to. The hotel itself is rather outdated, the room was rather small, the bathroom was tiny (the shower is almost above the toilet, if you take a shower the entire bathroom is flooded) the staff is helpfull and friendly. A very basic accomodation for a low price.
