This is the second time I have stayed here for work. Convenient location to my meetings with underground parking. Was delighted to receive a hand written welcome back note from the manager along with a chocolate and upgrade to the premium room. I've already recommended this hotel to my other coworkers and will be back when in Brisbane again.

A very nicely appointed hotel but I must say a disappointing location - it looks like it's right in the city but actually it's up the top of the hill, away from the retail/dining sector and the streetscape was largely carparks and corporate offices. The staff were very friendly and the room was very nice however small would be an... More

We stayed in March to attend a Wedding at the GABBA, we received a very warm welcome by helpful friendly staff. The rooms are cute, it is an easy walk to the CBD. A great experience at a great price, we will be back.

I stay regularly at the Diamant and its a fave. Great location thats easy to drive to from the airport but also close to the city without the hassle. The park and stay package is great value for the location as the parking garage is 30 seconds away. I don't usually eat in the restaurant next door which I understand... More

I had comfortable stay at the Diamant in Brisbane. I had a standard room which was small but fine for one person or a couple who only want to use it for sleeping. The room had a small balcony which allowed for fresh air instead of air conditioning which was a bit too loud. The bed was great and the... More

My mum and I stayed here a few days ago. We had to book last minute as our plans had changed and this room at $138 for the night was one of the most reasonable around. I really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and the late check-out was really handy as I'm not a morning person. The hotel was a bit... More

Stayed here for one night prior to a business trip. Arrived early (11am) and Eva at the front desk could not have been more accommodating. She found me a room and got me settled in. There's not much to say about the room. It's a Diamant room, clean and functional. Pleasant but not "roomy". The booking was made via Wotif... More

Pretty pricey and fairly small but beautiful room in a good and fairly quiet location. The room is very nicely decorated and the bed is very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Brisbane.

Easy access to train station and bus service - both a fewminutes walk from the hotel - this was handy for an early morning trip to airport. Staff very friendly and helpful - even pointed out the shortcut to train station. Good locaton for shopping in this area of Brisbane.

Yes, the rooms are small (don't go looking for a chair) but for a night or two, quite sufficient. Lovely comfy beds with soft pillows, hot showers and free WiFi. All that you need, really. Good value for money. The walk into town takes about 10 minutes, good exercise as uphill on the way back after dinner.
