“Comfortable rooms in a fantastic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2015

Checkin opens at 3:30, so don't plan on checkin in before that...the door will just be locked until you get your room key. The solitary door beside a bar looks kind of sketchy, but behind it is a very comfortably set up place with modern bathroom and soft beds. The best part is the balcony overlooking Piazza Signoria, and you can watch the life unfold below your feet.

If it's a nice night, you can see the students gathering in one of the many restaurants set up in the square at night, and the noise can penetrate into the rooms, so be aware of that.

I'd recommend this hotel to people looking for a comfortable stay, who don't mind sleeping with a little background noise. Honestly for me, it was worth the central location and free breakfast in the mornings (voucher to a cafe).

Room Tip: It's a tradeoff between quieter rooms and walking up stairs.

If you like to be in the centre of the action and don't mind a bit of noise, Diamantino is a thing for you. When the windows are open, you feel as if you were on Piazza dei Signiori. The owners are only there to help you check in and you get vouchers for breakfast, which are redeemable in one of two nearby cafes. Three great ice cream places are just outside the door.
We only had two minor issues. First, there was a lot of dust underneath the beds. Second, there is a semi transparent glass wall between the room and the shower, so you can see the person in the shower. I do realise it can be an advantage, but I was travelling for business with a colleague.

We have stayed here in October 2013. I really think that this appartment have the best accomodation in the Padova. It is situated quite in the centre of historical centre on the main square. It is an amazing place. Every evening (especial in the wednesday evening) are gathering all students of Padova here. Padova is a city of young people full of joy, happiness and cheerfull energetic! They are sitting in the open cafes: drinking Shpritz Apperol , laughing, talking, joking and you can also join to them. Atmosphere is great! if you prefer to sleep in silence you can also choose Diamantino town house, but you should order a room with windows to the yard. The rooms are very good: clean, beautifull, with good furniture and bathroom. You can also get breakfast in nearest cafe: coffe and cake.

We checked in on the same day as Valspen43, the mosquito couple, and don't know what they're talking about!!
We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We certainly had no problem with mosquitoes. Our room was on the 1st floor with a double balcony opening onto Piazza dei Signori, one of Padova's main squares and it was a very comfortable size. THere are stairs but it specifies no lift in the accommodation infromation when you book. So we were prepared for this. BEing a main square we expected some noise but were not unduly disturbed, it just added to the great atmosphere.
It's absolutely close and in easy walking distance to everythng there is to see. Breakfast is in Cafe Marle downstairs - a very tasty typical Italian-style breakfast served by the lovely friendly staff. The market that sets up in the square each morning is a bonus and we never even heard it set up.
The only thing we'd comment on is that the hot water pressure is a bit low. We would recommend Diamantino Town House to anyone.

Room Tip: 1st floor looking over the square with balcony is excellent.

We have never seen so many mosquitoes in a hotel room in all our travels in Italy or anywhere else! One very empty plug-in mosquito killer was all that was available when we first arrived; and a request for a refill unearthed a single replacement described as the last on the premises. The bedroom was so small that, with windows shut to exclude any more mosquitoes, we would have spent many uncomfortable hours trying to sleep. Another problem was the strange parking arrangement that left us without direct access to our car - and not even any idea of where the hotel manager had left it. All we were told was that the manager himself would fetch the car and/or any of its contents if we asked him. Surely this is not the way to provide adequate parking.

One final, major complaint: the hotel had already charged our credit card with the full cost of a three-night stay before we had even arrived!! The consequence of this is now a prolonged wrangle with the hotel and the booking agency over who is responsible for reimbursing us for at least two of the nights we have barely set foot in the bedroom, let alone slept in it!!

Room Tip: Inspect for mosquitoes on arrival!

There is some contention in the reviews about the noise levels in the rooms at the front of the building. I stayed on level three, front room, and slept very well. Yes, there was the noise of the market as the stalls set up in the piazza in the morning. I heard it and went back to sleep. Maybe I am just a heavy sleeper but I also really liked this place. It is run by a friendly and likeable chap. The rooms are small but clean and of a very good standard. It could not be better located. We walked the streets of central Padua until 11.00pm stopping here and there and then were back at the hotel and in bed within a few minutes. You cannot be that central and expect everyone else to be quite for you. So make up your own mind. I loved the place and what ever noise there was did not affect me at all.
