Although Rimini mainly has a reputation as a destination for sun-seeking holiday makers, the city is also a popular destination for business travellers and tourists, with plenty of available accommodation to meet the demand. Rimini boasts some 1,500 hotels in total, so there's plenty to suit everyone. However, during the summer months, accommodation does fill up very quickly.
Prices for hotel rooms in Rimini can also rise steeply during July and August. To make sure you get the accommodation or lodging that best suits you, it's essential that you book well ahead.
On the other hand, many of the hotels in Rimini close completely during the winter, although some accommodation does remain open throughout the year, where rates are much more reasonably priced for out-of-season visitors. It's worth exploring half-board or full-board rates offered by some hotels, as these can often provide extremely good value for money.
