"Small personal boutique style hotel"
Staff were very helpful. I injured my knee and there was absolutely no problem getting me some ice etc. Have stayed there previously and would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great--newly renovated in a thoughtful and interesting style, all amenities were high quality and it managed to pull off the "boutique hotel" vibe really well--but the standout feature is the strip of restaurants downstairs. There are three and they are excellent for lounging around in. I ate outside at the tapas place (overpriced but […] still nice) and watched the sun go down on a beautiful summer day. For breakfast I ate at the bakery (A Baker) and it was delicious. In all, a cute place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location great, New Acton has a great atmosphere, would stay here again. Room was on the small side, but bathroom was huge!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms were very clean and well presented. Hotel amenities were a bit amiss eg. Gym in another building, no pool. Walking distance to lake, but Canberra is pretty condensed, so if you have a car, distance isn't much of a problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here with my husband at the weekend. The staff were very polite and helpful. The room was comfy and quiet even though it was very close to an excellent and busy restaurant. We would definitely stay here again.The only downsides were: no pool nearby and no onsite parking (though some of the street parking was free at the weekend and there is […] a Wilson car park around the corner).

"Great hotel close to ANU and easy walking distance"
Stayed at this hotel to attend a conference at ANU.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay, although had the standard room which was very small. Quality fixtures.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel old. Room small. Bed , pillows uncomfortable. Staff good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good location but the room was quite small and I thought it was over priced. False fire alarm went off at 6AM but no explanation was given from the hotel staff and all the guests had to wait in the lobby area for nearly one hour. I have chosen this hotel based on the previous reviews on your website but unfortunately, I could not agree with most […] of the favorable comments towards this hotel.

"Stylish and clean"
Very impressive about the hotel service and cleanliness. If only they can have the kitchen open till late (11.00pm or midnight), that will be perfect. Not necessary for big meal but some hot food like soup and sandwiches for those who stay up late.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good to stay! good staff convenient!"
Nice hotel close to Commonwealth park which currently held Floriade. I stayed one night with my car. good parking space (under cover) nice comfy bed. Wireless is bit slow (less than 1mb) but happy it's free :D don't expect too much on amenities, bring your own shampoo and conditioner if you care. I would suggest you to bring it. otherwise room is cozy, […] look classic in corridor. easy to get there as well as Floriade. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, crisp, predictable, and economical"
A new chic part of Canberra and this hotel is in the middle of it. Well positioned by the lake though don't think views, think convenient and hip. The staff are jittery, fresh faced, and charming. They deliver on service and are responsive to simple requests like extra coffee bags. Parking is probable if you arrive at 5pm though you may have to pay […] an extra $15 otherwise. The gym is two buildings away though a casual walk through the 'wanting to be hip' neighbourhood. And it kind of is hip as well. Sydneysiders read that it is fresh and cold so the morning gym stroll so think hoodie. whoa. The restaurant for breakfast is recently renovated under the familiar signature of scratch back and clean design. Throw in some novel lighting and again it delivers. The continental breakfast is the best feature of The Diamont in my opinion. The fresh cold meats and fresh fruit are world class. This is compliments by the bircher and pastries. The chef clearly eats here and enjoys what he's doing. My partner arrived Friday night and we had some novel fun having a relaxing milk bath at the day spa next door. Your mind and body will appreciate the relaxed start to the weekend. The Diamont is everything expected and more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"One of the better hotels in Canberra"
This hotel feels quite new and modern. The room assigned was small to moderate in size, but quite well provided with new furnishings. The bed was very comfortable. The location is reasonably central, but that depends upon what brings you to Canberra. It is especially convenient for access to the commercial centre and to the Australian Museum. The service […] seemed to be geared for a young crowd, and as an older traveler they did not make me feel especially welcome. The restaurant had a menu limited to basically Italian fare, and I did not care much for the choice of music, and the fact that it was played so loudly (but that seems these days to be a generational problem). Probably younger customers would rate the hotel close to 5, but I would put it more at about 4.5 on the Expedia scale. That means, of course, it is one of the better hotels in Canberra..

"Smart & Funky"
The hotel is a fun hotel very well located. The bed was very comfortable and the room well appointed - however standing at the end of the bed it was almost impossible to open the fridge. The restaurant seemed popular and there were several good cafes nearby for breakfast. The open fire in the lobby was welcoming and the sculptures were great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"would return and stay again"
Staff were really nice, hotel room clean and comfy, internet very slow but it was freeGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Everything you want and more. Fantastic food and service design and decor and the sculpture village was amazingGenuine Expedia guest review
"The rooms are great"
Stayed there for my wedding night. The suite was fabulous but the room service never arrived. Hallways are very dark and every time a car drives past the front of hotel the loose pavers on road make a dreadful sound. But oh the room was fantastic! It was so lovely: the bed, the bathroom, the rainforest shower! Plenty of space for my wife and her bridal […] party to get ready on the morning of the wedding. Definitely will stay there again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trendy yes - nice - not so much"
The corridors and rooms are dull and ordinary once you get past the hip front entrance. My air-conditioner had two settings. Off and very hot, or arctic sub zero. No pool, and a view of the building next door. Lets say Im not planning on staying there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location but the rooms are extremly small. I booked a standard queen room and was nicely upgraded by the receptionist to a premium room. The premium was no bigger than a shoe box so i would hate to think what a standard room would be like. Overall great location but wont be staying again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice room, great hotel restaurant. Particularly good location if visiting ANU.Genuine Expedia guest review
A very good location - a few minutes from London Circuit. Funky hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Plan to return!"
Everything about our stay was great- the room, drinks at the bar, the restaurant was very good. Our only very small suggestion would be to give the guest a map of the hotel at check-in... we ran into three different people, plus ourselves, who managed to get lost several times despite pretty good signage throughout!Genuine Expedia guest review
The only improvement I can think of is the installation of handrails in bathrooms. Perhaps not aesthetically pleasing, but very useful for older patrons who might slip over in the shower or near the toilet (which does seem to become wet after showering.)Genuine Expedia guest review
very friendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A comfortable stay in a great location."
Lovely renovated hotel. Great mix of fresh and trendy and oldy-worldy. Situated in a great position. Easy walking to city, National Museum and other attractions. The staff are young and very helpful but didn't quite get how booking for breakfasts works. We ate in their Italian restaurant Bicicletta which was excellent. The rooms are a little dark (dark […] purple walls and grey and white zigzag carpets) but they are comfortable. All in all, a lovely stay and we would stay there again.

I was glad it was only for one night. I was glad to get out. Room was claustrophobic corridors dark and poorly maintained which made it look like a seedy hotel. Not value for money . TGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Diamant in Canberra is a great little hotel in walking distance to cafes and the city. The rooms have a nice atmosphere, a subtle designer look that is a step up from the regular smart hotel fit-out. Stay a couple of days and take advantage of the gym (or Fitness First pass), and don't forget to have breakfast around the corner (cant remember the […] name but it used to be "as nature intended" and if you like Thai food, walk up to Alice's Restaurant in Civic. Like most eatery's Alice's is BYO so after dinner walk home and have a drink in the Hotel Bar - great atmosphere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel near centre of Canberra"
Stayed at this hotel whilst in Canberra for a conference, and the property suited my needs perfectly. Lovely looking 'boutique' accommodation in a heritage building. My room was compact, but for one person it was just right. The bed was very comfortable, room amenities were great, including my favorite T2 tea bags! Bathroom was lovely, except for the […] glass partition on the shower. It lacked a door, there was just an opening where the door should be. Therefore water from the beautiful rain head shower ran all over the bathroom floor, and even onto the carpet of the room. I managed by rolling up the spare towel and using it as an extra bath mat. This is my only negative comment, everything else was excellent. The restaurant was great, property facilities were attractive including outdoor courtyard, and it was close to the centre of town. It also has a couple of nice cafes/coffee shops nearby. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Older hotel that has been updated well."
Great location near centre of Canberra. Room was not large but all good. Older hotel that has been updated well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location but tiny room"
The location of the hotel is very convenient. The hotel is quite modern with the rooms being recently updated. We stayed in room 127 (lower ground floor). The room was quite small. Very small I must say - just a touch bigger than a king size bed. Also there was a café outside with the tables right under the room's window. In the winter it's not a problem […] 'cos it' freezing and no one sits outside. But in the summer I imagine it could be quite noisy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK but tired."
The internet gave the impression the hotel had been recently built whereas actually the foyer was the only new part. the building was old and tired. The fridge in the room did not work and we requested as per the information provided to have it emptied...this did not happen. As i am diabetic I required the fridge for my use not for drinks. Shower was […] brilliant. Most likely would book elsewhere next trip. We felt the advertising was misleading. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Impressed with the complimentary magazines"
Spent a night in Canberra. Love the decor of this hotel. Staffs are very friendly. The room size is a bit too small. The environment is not too pleasant at the moment as there is a construction site very very closed to the hotel. Surprise there is no wi-fi connection in room for this type of hip hotel. Impressed with the magazines provided by the hotel […] for EACH room as they just fit my taste like " habitus", "luxury travel". I give lot of points to that. Would love to stay there again next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxed Boutique Accommodation"
My wife and self stayed over on a recent visit to Canberra. The hotel is an old, low rise, accommodation? building so the ambiance is more relaxed and clubby than the grand hotel variety. The friendly, efficient staff add to this atmosphere. The premises can best be described as minimalist. We were in a deluxe room. This had all the amenities; but was […] quite small. The bed took up most of the space. The hotel is conveniently located, adjacent to the Civic area; but away from it. All things considered, we enjoyed our stay and and would certainly consider a return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Diamant Hotel in Canberra"
It was pleasant to see Romy toiletries provided in the bath room ( we paid more for a room with bath ) . The Tea2 bags are quite unusual in hotels. Room is clean except the welcome apple is kind of rotten. Selection of DVDs can be improved. Generally, still very happy with this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Diamant -small, centrally located and excellent"
The Diamant offers friendly, excellent service in a setting which is so much more individual and interesting than the bland sameness of many larger hotels. We felt very comfortable, enjoyed the dinner and breakfast we had in the dining area, and will certainly book at Diamant again when we next visit Canberra.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"would stay there again"
A heritage hotel with up-to-date comfort. Quiet location, but close to Lake Burley Griffin and scenic walks. Staff very friendly ,professional and informative. All amenities available.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stay in Canberra often and tried the Diamant for the first time last weekend. It was very comfortable and the staff most obliging. The only 2 criticisms were: 1. the hallways and doorways had chips in the walls and on the wood work. 2.The parking facility is not very convenient We would however stay there again. The breakfast was very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent accommodation,warm ,cosy home away from home"
Fantastic accommodation. Welcolming warm staff, very helpful. Great restaurant. Rooms well appointed, Would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the price or the location"
Modern, well positioned hotel. However, service in the restaurant was slow and average at best and the rooms, for what you are paying were FAR too small, and we had a Deluxe room!! Could not recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel by ANU"
This was a nicely appointed hotel walking distance to ANU. The rooms were comfortable and enough spacen for 1 to 2 people. A benefit was the free wireless internet in the lobby, which you could get in the room as well. There were no restaurants around the hotel though, and the hotel didn't have a restaurant in it, so it does take some wandering to find […] food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A delightfully distinctive hotel"
This is a cool designer hotel with masses of black wood and glass with contrasting walls and interesting modern art pieces. The style is slightly minimalist but unlike so many "boutique" establishments, the staff were welcoming, friendly and really helpful. The bedroom was large and extremely comfortable - and, vitally, quiet so great nights' sleep […] was had. Great shower too. Continental breakfast (served in the bar whilst they recover from the fire which spead onto the property and damaged the restaurant) was better value than most business hotels and nicely presented. Free wifi in lobby was a bonus. The location is just a few minutes walk from most of central Canberra but a bit of a trek to Parliament itself (but, then, isn't that true of anwhere in Canberra!). Frankly a reasonably priced and much better bet to the big formula chain hotels you'ld otherwise go to. Long may it continue in its slightly quirky style! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
