The Diamant Hotel is in Astor Terrace, a few streets behind Central Station. The location is quiet with not much happening in this part of Spring Hill. The first two nights we stayed in a small standard room, and then opted to upgrade to the "suite" which had two arm chairs for a lounge area, a king size bed and a small kitchen. There is no microwave or oven, just a couple of hotplates and not a lot of crockery and cutlery The bed was good, but being king sized there wasn't enough room to open the cupboard! The hotel is funky looking with interesting wall papers on each floor. There is a restaurant/bar on the ground floor - the O Bar which is open 7 days with breakfast and coffee til 11 most days and dinner 6 nights. The food is quite good, good variety of dishes. The hotel advertises room service which is provided by the ground floor restaurant - however when we called one night to order a meal we were advised, unbeknown to the hotel which advised us to call them, there was a private function in the bar and they were not serving room service. This meant a trek out to find a restaurant late at night. Seems good for solo business travellers, and the location is ok - there are not a lot of eateries etc in close vicinity. Reception staff were generally helpful and friendly. Probably wouldn't stay again - was a tad expensive for the size of the rooms.
