First, I was unsure if it was a good decision to stay in King's Cross. But once I was there, I loved it. You really can't call it a red light district. It is a mix of great restaurants, cafes, shops and only a little bit "red light". The Diamant is just a minute away from the subway station and... More

We were very surprised to read any negative reviews on the Diamant. We found the front desk staff to be courteous, friendly and always helpful in our requests. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. We slept very well, enjoyed the location very much and would be very happy to stay again. Highly recommended.

The night receptionist was clueless - he made our check in 45 minutes long! I felt bad for the long line of people who still had to check in. When we finally had gone upstairs to the rooms, everything was very very dark. The couch was discustingly dirty! I did however like about the hotel that it was in an... More

Stayed for six days. Easy to get to and find. Came from the airport via train and walked from Kings Cross station (from the airport-line train it's just one transfer at Central Station). Check-in was easy. They held my bags from my arrival at 8am until my room was ready at noon. Sleek lobby. Dark, dark hallways (it's meant to... More

From the very friendly desk staff to the sleek contemporary lobby design, first impressions at the Diamont are, well... impressive. But you quickly realize that form regretfully triumphs over function. While I appreciate the low-energy efforts at lighting, I still want to be able to read in bed, which you cannot do with the dim room lighting... nor can you... More

I booked a standard room with two beds and confirmed in an email. That's exactly what I got. The beds were clean and comfy with topsheets covering the blankets. Safe and in room coffee were included. bathrooms were a bit trendy with a glass wall near the shower and open to the elements at the far end. So don't splash... More

I enjoyed my stay at this place very much.

So it's not five star but you get very good value if you can get a room at a special rate. The hotel is well located, close to the city and key entertainment and shopping areas. The decor is very modern (albeit a little masculine, lots of black) and the rooms were quiet despite being on a very busy intersection.... More
