    Good value for money. Basic, clean hotel. Good location.

    Not the best hotel, but reasonably ok for the over priced Rio. They could put some shelfs in bathroom.

    Conveniently placed near Metro and in almost walking distance from the party area of Lapa, this hotel is a good choice if you're not planning on spending alot of time in the hotel itself, but would like to have somewhere clean and quiet to sleep.

    The staff's foreign language skills were a problem - neither german, french nor english makes it difficult to ask about anything. It should be a minimum to speak english when you work behind the reception desk. Also - the internet connection was down almost 12 hours, and definately fragile at the best of times. That was one of the reasons we chose the hotel, and it led to diffculties with our flight.

    The Diamond Hotel is conveniently located near a Metro stop, which made it very easy to travel around town. The rooms were very big, and air conditioned, and the bed was comfortable. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was fantastic - the fruit was wonderful and they even had waffles!

    A few of the staff at the front desk were less than helpful when we had questions about places to go in the city. We also spotted a few roaches in the room the first day!

    The staff was very nice

    The facility was worn, in a state of dis repair and seemed to be a bit unclean. Need renovation. For the cost, we believe we could have chosen a better hotel.

    Convience to Downtown and the Metro. Close to Flamengo park for running.

    The street at night is a little dodgie. Prostitutes near the hotel.

    Nice big room, huge bathroom, with huge jacuzzi style bat. Handy location just 5 mins walk to Gloria metro station.

    Nice big room with 3 beds, however, there is only 1 electric socket for the whole room, and none of my adapters fitted. I had to use the shaving socket. There was no information in the room about services available, including the fact that water in the fridge is not free and that a small bag of laundry is going to cost you about R$100 (€37). Even on the 10th floor, the noise bad too.

    This hotel is at a good location about halfway between the City Center and Flamengo Beach. The hotel appeared to have been constructed or at least heavily renovated in the 1980s. The floor in the rooms was new laminate. There was a radio with speakers built in under the bed. The shower was huge, as was the bathroom in general. There was a flat screen TV with about 50 channels. The was an in room safe that we used regularly. Also, there was a mini fridge that we used often.

    Unfortunately, for this hotel, I would say the cons outweigh the pros, and for this I would look elsewhere if I were to visit Rio again. Like I said, the hotel appears to have been last renovated in the 1980s, so it's looking fairly rundown overall. This would be fine, other than the fact that the hotel was very expensive, in fact the 2nd most expensive hotel I've ever paid for, 2nd only to one on Oahu. The staff really was not very friendly, and often just stared at us when we would come and go. The restaurant is sub par and the breakfast is below average, one of the worst I've experienced in the 10 or so hotels I've stayed at in Brazil. There was nearly no selection and the juice was very watered down. We also ate there the 1st night we arrived, and I was shocked when after having some old, buffet type food that the waiter brought us a bill for R$52. Definitely avoid the restaurant! The shower in the room was huge, but the hot water is very finicky, very intermittent, and sometimes you have to wait 5 or 10 minutes for it to come back. The room has some randomly creepy mirrors placed around it, which my wife certainly did not like. The bed is built on a wood frame and sounded like it was ready to crash to the floor at any given moment, as it made large cracking noises when one would roll over on it. The mattress was very firm but not unbearable. If you are coming from the states, there were only 2 U.S. friendly sockets in the room, and those were in the kitchen area and the bathroom. The view from the room was really not worth it, so I would not recommend paying for that upgrade. Also, there is a school with 10-year old children next door, so don't plan on catching any ZZZZZZZs during the day.
