“Convenient location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Stayed here for one night, spacious rooms with all the basic amenities including an iPod docking station. Clean bathroom. Within walking distance to Central station (train access to airport) and malls. I needed a late checkout and the staff were accommodating of that, no hassles. Overall a good stay! Will come back.

Internet access is free and you get 1mbps down/up (Speedtest.net results). It's not good enough to Skype but you can use IM.

The gym deal is amazing. I'd prefer every hotel to have an agreement with gyms in the neighborhood instead of trying to maintain their own health club.

The Fitness First on the corner of Creek and Elizabeth street (10 minute walk from the hotel) is tops for weight training and cardio.

The location is fantastic and there are many dining options nearby and the Queen street happening spots are close by.The bar downstairs offers great food and wonderful company. The hotel staff is friendly, in particular Lisa!

I can only fault this hotel because of Internet access and for not being in the same league as the other hotels I've been to which I've given 5/5.

Sorry guys - You are good though!

I stayed here for 1 night courtesy of my airline due to a very long delay. The check in staff were friendly and helpful and my room was comfortable, although the bed seems quite short even for me, and I'm fairly small. The decor was quite modern and the bathroom and shower were lovely, particularly after spending all day stuck in an airport.
I had breakfast in the hotel's cafe and it was delicious. It wasn't the usual buffet selection but instead an a la carte menu. As I was in a hurry I just had some yoghurt and muesli with a green tea but it looked like there were some delicious hot options on the menu. They also served Toby's Estate coffee there.
The hotel was about 20 mins from the airport.

Have stayed a number of times in this hotel. It located within 10 minutes walk of the CBD and 5 minutes from Central Railway Station. Perfect location in a quiet street after business hours. The best part of this place is although the rooms are small the beds are one of the most comfortable I have slept in a hotel. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the downstairs bar and restaurant are well worth a look at.

As you are a regular guest it is fantastic to receive this positive reaffirmation so thank you for sharing your views.

I agree the beds are extremely comfortable. This is due in part to the wonderful toppers on each of the beds, it's like sleeping on a cloud. Please feel free to contact us directly to assist if you would like to purchase for your home.

Modern, funky hotel. Room was clean with tv/aircon and bed was really comfy! Couldn't fault the staff, very helpful with any problems. Pretty good location. Easy walk to the city central and quiet in the evenings if you want some peace. Only negative I would have is that the room was slightly small. Fine for me on my own but I had previously stayed in an apartment 3x the size for only $20 extra (but I guess that's just brisbane prices!)! If you do stay here, check out the 'jak + hill' reataurant next door - great food!

My husband and I stayed for one night in a Premier room on Sat 21.6.14. We booked through Wotif and got a great deal including a free room upgrade, continental breakfast and a 12:00 check-out. We arrived, had a very smooth check in with a delightful receptionist, got directions for the carpark, and went up to our room. The décor of the hotel is very cool & charming, the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Yes, it was on the smaller size, but we were there for less then 24 hours and really only spent most of that sleeping!! The King bed was so comfortable we wanted to take it home with us! The shower was great, nice pressure and heat. We received a lovely surprise when a bottle of bubbles was delivered to our room for our anniversary, so nice :)
We had a great sleep and breakfast in O was fantastic!! See my review on their page. The man that processed our check out was fantastic as well!
Highly recommend Diamant for a short, relaxing stay

Room Tip: We had room 511 which was at the end of a corridor, well away from the lifts and nice & quiet
