A group of us stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel needs some major cleaning in order to resemble the pictures in the brochure. We arrived in the evening and we can totally see the spider web hanging on the wall and in the lobby chandelier. The room is carpeted, which is worn and need to be replaced....

We only stayed here for one night as it was filthy. The pictures in the brochere looked nice and it appealed to us as it had a pool. It was very old hotel, we changed rooms wen we first got there as the room had not been cleaned, the rooms smelled, the lights did not all work, the toilet did...

We turned up in Chiang Mai after a 12 hour sleeper train from Bangkok, based on Lonely Planet ratings we booked a night's accommodation in the Diamond Riverside. Luckily it was only one night! Our initial reaction, based solely on the lobby, was not promising, it was deserted, both of staff and customers, and in desperate need of updating. It...

We arrived at 6:30 am and paid Bt 1,000.per night , the huge lobby was like a ghost town. There was only a couple having a buffet breakfast, we could not spot any hotel staff...

I initially made my reservation at the Diamond Riverside via the Internet from home prior to my departure for Thailand. When I arrived I found the staff to be, at best, unhelpful, at worst, downright rude. The rooms were dirty, and smelt damp. There were literally no staff working after 10pm, which meant you had to go behind the reception...

This hotel went beyond simply "faded glory" and straight on into "total fleabag" Our room featured the following amenities: - used bar of soapin the bathroom - half-empty bottles of shampoo - rat feces in the water glasses - mysterious brown stains on the sheets - a 4-foot-square patch of rotting drywall - mold infestation so bad that we were...

Let me just start by saying that the only reason that I have given the Diamond Riverside Hotel a one star vote is because the web form did not have the option to give it the zero star rating that it deserves. The room that I stayed in was incredibly run down and dirty including holes and cigarette burns in...
