I'm originally from Sydney, now living in Los Angeles. I haven't been home in some time but recently made the trip down under for my brother's surprise 40th birtday party. I decided to book a week at the Diamant Hotel in Potts Point primarily for the location - it really doesn't get much better - close to the city, Paddington & Darlinghurst, a short walk to the harbor foreshore (Rushcutters Bay) and 2 mins from Kings Cross train station and major bus routes. I actually used to live in Potts Point so am familiar with everything that part of town has to offer - aside from its central location, Potts Point (and neighboring Darlinghurst) has an army of cute coffee shops, restaurants, bars and shops.. a great place to base yourself in Sydney.. and that's coming from a local. So for roughly $200 a night, including a balcony/terrace I figured 'how bad could it be'. Well let me tell you, it wasn't bad at all, in fact it was downright GREAT! The Diamant Hotels boast a 'luxury boutique' hotel experience and that's pretty much what you get. The rooms are clean, modern and well sized. They include all the necessary ammenities - VERY COMFY BED, bath, shower, FREE internet and cable TV (these are the musts for me at least). The balcony is more a like a patio (huge) replete with outdoor furniture and most days I found myself sitting out there enjoying beautiful Sydney 'end of summer' weather. Not all the rooms have an outdoor area, but if you're willing to spend a bit extra its well worth it. The staff were super friendly and very accomodating. I can honestly say I enjoyed my stay there and will be on the look out for other Diamant Hotels (and other 8 Hotels for that matter) in my future travels. Look, if you want to be a typical tourist and spend fortunes on some generic big brand name hotels (Hyatt, Hilton) downtown then go for it, but if you want a more authentic Sydney experience, staying at a very cool, very hip and amazingly located hotel then look no further then the Diamant Hotel Potts Point.
