Riccione is a happening place and reminded me of Costa del Sol: every square inch has been developed and utilized. Hotel Diamond is 3 blocks from the beach. It is not a sea front property. There is paid parking outside the hotel but we ended up parking for free on the street.
The rooms: tiny European rooms. You can basically barely walk around your bed. The bed was made of 2 twin size beds. Large bed. The bathroom was adequate. Overall clean rooms with your standard european 14" tv and dorm room fridge. The good thing is that you can remove all the overpriced items in the fridge and put your own.
Breakfast: typical italian breakfast though boiled eggs were free!!!! The surprise of the trip as in most other hotels you had to pay extra for an egg or an omelette [ 3 to 7 euros per egg ].
Negative: we could basically listen in to every single thing happening in the room next door, from the annoying mobile ringtone, the mobile phone conversation, the snoring, the fart, etc. The walls between rooms must be super thin. I was awakened by most probably a nice lady who decided to wear her 10" high heels at 8:00 AM : every single foot step resonnated in our room.
Would I stay again or recommend this hotel: It is an ok hotel with an ok price but I am sure you can find better value for your money in the area.
