“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

The hotel is in a nice enough area and -very- close to public transportation to the airport and to more of the centrally located neighborhoods of Lisbon. It was generally a quiet area, but the room we were booked in was on the main street and it was LOUD. I hardly slept the first evening due to the sound of buses, motorcycles and cars which just never stopped. We asked the next day to be moved to a quieter room and the staff were very accommodating.
Breakfast is okay if basic. The juice machine is best avoided as the juice had the fake sugar taste. A nice selection of pastries and a variety of fruits were very welcome.

Rooms are basic, but very clean! Available tv programming in English was great. Good water pressure in the shower!

They had a promotion for the Lisbon Derby with complementary roasted chestnuts and a glass of port which was also a nice touch, though we were only able to catch the last 20 minutes of the match.
Overall, a good value for money.

We stayed 3 nights in America Diamond. The hotel is just adjacent to the Picoas Metro Station. The famous Marquis De Pombal Square is only 10 minutes walk from the hotel. A Pizza Hut outlet is just next to the hotel. A departmental store is also near. Taxis are always available. 15 Euro required to go to the airport by taxi.

The service of the hotel is very good. The reception is always smiling and helpful. They have always guided us the routes of different tourist spots.

The rooms are spacious and clean. the outside view is beautiful. There are several restaurants in the Saldanha area near to the hotel.

The buffet breakfast is not bad and sufficient.

Nice hotel to stay again.

Firstly, we booked this hotel due to its location to the public transport and to that extent we were not disappointed. The airport bus drops you off literally just round the corner and the metro stop is just a few foot steps away, it really is that close! If you arrive on a late flight, you have a pizza hut next door which is really handy. I cannot fault the staff, they were kind and courteous and the room was very clean, in fact the hotel was always very clean. However, the room size was compact and the air conditioning unit very noisy. After one night with the A/C on and no sleep we had to resort to turning it off. We were on the side next to the road, which on Saturday night was not not too loud, but the noise did increase and it disturbed us a lot. Noise seemed to be an issue as we could always hear when the room above used the water! At 2am in the morning hearing a gush of water down the pipes is not appealing. With it being only 1.40 euros one way to use the metro its easy to get down town, we actually chose to walk quite a lot and it only takes 20 mins. However, we would like to have been closer to the down town area and purely for us the hotel was a little out of the way. Pros and Cons with this place, and to be honest if we returned to Portugal we would not stay at this hotel again for noise and location factors, however for the price you pay, and if you are not light sleepers like ourselves, it may well be a bit of a bargain.

This is an ideal place to stay in Lisbon. We were very happy with the service from the restaurant staff - there was a lovely variety for breakfast each morning. The reception staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms were an adequate size and the bathroom was a perfect size. The hotel was spotlessly clean. We didn't have any problem with noise during the night- which is a great bonus in any city, we even had the window open every night. Air conditioning in room was very much appreciated. The best thing about this hotel was there was an underground station entrance about 4 feet from the door of the hotel which meant we didn't need any taxis during our stay, we were able to do all our travelling and it only took us 5 seconds to get to the metro. The metro line also runs to the airport with only one change to make on the underground. Great hotel & great staff. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed here with two other couples from 3rd to 6th October. Rooms are compact but still enough room. Beds comfortable, room service excellent and all staff very friendly. Reception staff very welcoming and informative. The 4 in 1 hop on hop off ticket ( available at reception ) is great value as you get to use the ticket on the tour , public buses and trams, funiculars and the aerobus.The location is superb, easy acces to metro and El Cortes Inglais shopping is a 5 minute walk away, left out the hotel entrance. There is a very good restaurant (Sessenta ) on the same street Rua Tomas Ribeiro, again left out the door .
The breakfast was great , a selection of hot , ( bacon , sausages, egg, mushrooms ),and cold ,( meats , cheese fruit, pastries , cereals). Plenty to set you up for the day of touring .
A cosy residents bar is available.
The only item which we required and was not available, was an iron.
Would certainly recommend this hotel... great value for the price we paid.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while visiting Lisbon.
The location is excellent, the steps to the Picoas Metro station entrance is literally across the pavement as you step out of the front door. The metro is the best way to get round Lisbon, (a Day ticket to buses, trains, trams and elevadors is 6.50 Euro).
The hotel was modern and clean. The room was compact, but there was enough space for the two of us. The TV had approx 10 English language channels.
Breakfast was included in the room rate and was both a continental and a hot buffet option, this was served on the top floor with nice views up the busy street outside.
The staff were helpful, friendly and spoke good English.
Very nice location for your visit to Lisbon

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

I was in this hotel for 5 nights with my husband, two young children and my mum. We got two rooms: a double and a triple. Overall it was a good experience, great value for money and we would definately go back.

Positives:
- great location - right beside the Metro, really handy to get to anywhere
- our rooms were extremely clean
- bathrooms really tastefully decorated
- staff were extremely helpful and corteous, with information, directions and useful recommendations and suggestions. Nothing we asked ever seemed to be a problem.
- My son has a gluten intolerance and the hotel provided gluten free bread and cereal.

- I found breakfast good (for a 3 star hotel), but my Irish husband missed having more of a hot food buffet - the only hot food would have been scrambled eggs, bacon and some days mushrooms, other days mini sausages.
As I would expect for a 3 star hotel we didn't have a huge vaeriety of option but what was available was fresh and tasted great. (in addition to the hot food you also had 3 types of cereal, variety of breads, cold meats - ham/ turkey breast/ salami, fruit salad + one other type of fruit, yogurts, machine for fruit juices, coffee machine- with options for capuccino, latte etc, pastries and cakes)

Negatives:
- There's free wifi but I never managed to get connected on my mobile, altough we got it on my mum's tablet
- The 'double bed' in the triple room was two single beds put together and a gap would open in between if we rolled onto the middle
- there was no setting for changing the direction of the aircon fan and it was permanently directed at my son's bed, we ended up having to switch it off and be quite warm a couple of nights. It wasn't a problem in the double room though.
