“Excellent short getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

We recently spent a night here before catching an early morning flight out of Brisbane. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. There is off street parking but as we were headed out early in the morning we parked in metered parking which started at 8am. Our room was well appointed albeit quite small but for only one night we had plenty of room. The best thing was the sliding glass door to the small balcony was obviously double glazed so there was no traffic noise and no noise at all from the room next door (absolutely loved not hearing the neighbour flushing the toilet or using the shower!).

We'd stay here again and would recommend to people visiting Brisbane for a short stay.

Stayed here for one night over Easter. The reception staff are extremely friendly & accommodating. No problem to arrange an early check in for us. The room was small, balcony tiny - but it is a hotel room. The best part was the bed it was huge & soooo comfortable, did not want to get out - it was that good! Also had breaky twice from the restaurant & it was beautiful.

We stayed one night in a standard room. The hotel really funky and looks very nice. The room we stayed in was very small, but it had all of the things you need, and for a short saty was perfect. The bathroom was clean and looked great. The staff were really nice too. The bed was extremely comfortable.... one of the nicest hotel beds we have slept on. There are no facitlities onsite (pool or gym) which is a bit annoying, but they allow use of the gym down the road in the city. The only negatives are parking, with it being very expensive with the hotel and even more expensive in a parking place nearby, and the location is just a bit away from it all, with a 10 minute walk into the action (but thats not so bad). Being a Saturday, we were lucky enough to get a street park out the front. There is a Restaurant/ bar attached to the hotel, and the vibe in there was great, very cool indeed. Overall this was a great hotel to stay in and we will be back.

Paying $200 for a room you couldn't swing a cat in, you would at least expect foxtel or a movie channel on the tv. Also the receptionist needs to learn some customer service skills. Location is ok, only a few minutes walk from the city.

Stayed @ the Diamant Hotel for a night on a work trip. Location was close to where my client was located.
Extremely comfortable beds and pillows - however these have been the tiniest rooms I've ever been in. Even compared to the studio I had in London, the Diamant Hotel's room was small. I was apparently upgraded to a Deluxe but even then I thought it was tiny. I had to order room service and while I was working in the room and when dinner came, I had to move my laptop on to the bed as there really wasn't anywhere else to put dinner.
Apart from that - good service, however for the price that was paid, I'm not entirely sure it translated to getting value for money.

My partner and I stayed in this hotel whilst in Brisbane as part pf a two month stay in Australia. It was the most expensive hotel we used and the room was the smallest. In fact it was the smallest hotel THAT I HAVE EVER stayed in. If the prices were much reduced then my opinion might well change but at the moment my advice would be to look elsewhere.
