“Best restraunt in the city and extremely nice hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

If you don't want to pay an arm and a leg for a nice quality AC(for the summer) filled room you gotta check out the Diamond Hotel.
I know some people say Cockroaches in the room but I never seen one there in almost 4 years of visiting the place. I ate there monthly at least on occasion even when not staying there as their restraunt was extremly peaceful and the atmosphere awesome.

If you eat anything at the place I highly recommend either the Butter Chicken or the Chicken Tikka with Butter nans on the side. when your done eating any meal they are kind enough to bring you a big giant white cloth napkin and a bowl of lemon and warm water to wash your fingers with. Just a great place overall.

We stayed here two nights as most other places were booked out. We had two cockroaches in the bathroom. The rooms are basic. The location is okay, but it is a ten minute walk to the Ganges River. The restaurant is good. Service is a bit lacking.

We stayed at the Diamond Hotel in October 2011 for 2 days. The hotel is not extra-ordinary but is definitely worth staying at primarily because of its location. Situated just on the parallel road to the chaotic by-lanes of the ghats, its away yet close to most of the places that you would visit. The restaurant is good but expensive. Rooms are fairly clean and the amenities are basic. The staff is very courteous and helpful. All in all a satisfactory experience.

If what we saw was a 'deluxe' room - i hate to think what the regular room was like.
The whole building feels like an old 1950's school building. The room was dirty - everything from the bedspreads to the headboards to the chairs and other furniture.
Two single beds rather than a double.
A gap under the door.
Gross.

Its not on trip advisor - but directly across the road is the hotel J.S Residency. For 1000Rs more you get a modern room which is acceptably clean. It's brand new (open 1 month at time of writing - Nov 2011) and so after ironing out a few hitches will be good.

I stayed at Daimond Hotel for 2 days. The best thing is the location. It is very much in thecentre of teh old city and places like Ganga ghat, Sankat mochan Temple and BHU are very close to it. The room tariff is bit on higher side compared to the facilities...........but rooms are large and cleanliness is also good.

Room Tip: There is not much of difference but the ones away from the main road are more peaceful.

the diamond hotel is a centrally located spartan property that gives value for money. no frills but no cause for complaint either. earlier trip stayed at the plush radisson which is so far out it wastes half your daty getting into the city. we stayed at the diamond for the sankatmochan music festival and it was great as all the musicians were staying there too!!
