“Diamant Hotel Apartment - great location for ANU”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We booked a premier room and were upgraded to an apartment because of a plumbing issue. The apartment was in the new building diagonally opposite the Hotel - but still close to the action. The 1 bed apartment we stayed in was clean, modern and filled with fancy appliances. The bed is upstairs and the TV downstairs, I was looking forward to watching TV from a King size bed .. not to be. The couch was the most useless piece of furniture so we really did not use the tv or use the apartment as it should be used - oh did a load of washing in Miele washer/dryer..that was good! We had dinner in the hotel and that was very nice. Location wise it was fantastic as we were back and forward ANU visiting my daughter. Possible to walk to halls of residence - probably 15mins. Walked round to the National Museum and back that took about 45 mins, great scenery. 5 mins in the car to Canberra Centre Shops, really great shopping Great location for ANU and only 10 mins to the airport.

Room Tip: Apartments not suitable for small children or elderly - free parking with apartment.

Stayed Friday and Saturday nights in a deluxe room. The décor throughout is uber stylish, in keeping with the 8Hotels brand. I guess it's a conversion of an existing three storey building (in "old" Acton), which adds to the sense you have that it's a one-off design rather than a cookie cutter chain hotel. Room likewise stylish and super quiet; not the biggest deluxe room I've stayed in but impeccably appointed.

The hotel is in this redesigned New Acton precinct, which has its yuppy Disneyland side to it, but is on the whole a successful piece of urban renewal: outdoor cinema area, some old growth trees and original structures retained, some reasonably appealing bits of public art. Diamont fits seamlessly into this environment, which is one of the nice things about the hotel, I thought. It's worth getting a pass card to use the gym at the adjacent apartment complex to check out the high concept modern art foyer. We also loved the restaurant, Bicicletta: nice design and atmosphere, good food, friendly service, not too expensive. On the whole a lovely stay: not cheap, but I felt we got value for money.

Have just returned from a weekend in Canberra. The Diamant Hotel was terrific. Staff were efficient and friendly. Room was delightful. Very quiet. Restaurant for dinner and breakfast all good. Would highly recommend.

I really enjoyed my stay, it is a great hotel to stay due to many reasons which are, its location which was close to city and my business, excellent standard of rooms clean ,fresh and things are spit and span all request taken care of, polite and efficient staff which can be seen from their excellent and quick service. The turn down service was great and quick , the time on check in I was asked for assistance with my bags and was shown a curtsy.Great food of hotel restaurant. The amenities in the room were great and up to date. A perfect place to live for a business person. I would love to stay here with my family when I come back to Canberra for my next visit. A great price for such a up to mark quality rooms. Keep it up

Room Tip: All the rooms are clean and well presented so not much to look for. However,some more bright lights...

We stayed here just overnight and was delighted by the service. We were upgraded without a request because they could. The location is very convenient to tourist attractions, Canberra centre shopping and the airport has a direct route. Loved to shower and deep bath. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room with the bath.
