"At the metro station !" America Diamond's Hotel Lisbon Tip by empee3

America Diamond's Hotel Lisbon, Lisbon: 912 reviews and 5 photos

We stayed for 6 nights in this hotel in midtown Lisbon that is halfway between the city centre area Baixa and the campus of University of Lisbon. It is located in a business district in a safe and decent location. What is more important is the fact that it is next door to the Picoas metro station which is on the yellow line. Street or air traffic noise is not an issue here, as it is in hotels around Campo Pequeno, which is farther north.

Now, the drawbacks: Bed size is small in double rooms. If you book a double room, make sure you book a room with two beds. Room and bathroom was clean when we moved in, but they were not cleaned up well and every day something was missing, either shampoo was not replaced, hand towels were missing, floors were not wiped etc. After complaining to the hotel staff that there is no shampoo, we were told that we can wither pick up the shampoo in the lobby or we should wait until 23:45 to have them send it to the room because there was no staff. Speaking of reception staff, they were OK but not too willing to accomodate your needs. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was continental style open buffet with enough choices of drinks.

Overall a decent experience for the price with a little lacking service but with a great location.
