Overview

Minimalist-chic hideaway in a mod black-and-white tower near Sydney's boho nabes

The Look

The Diamant is like a best friend all dressed up for a night out on the town — which is good, given the hotel’s location at the top of William Street, right where party-hearty Kings Cross meets more genteel Surry Hills. Beneath the polished façade of stark black and white lines sits a moodily lit lobby and an imposingly monolithic reception desk; farther inside you’ll find bright splashes of color and a friendly young staff in this hip, minimalist hot spot.

Bed & Bath

Like the public areas, the guestrooms are a study in contemporary boutique hotel aesthetics, with a black-and-white palette that is accented by brightly colored headboards, patterned sections of walls and a Technicolor armchair here or there. Though some rooms are on the small side, the spaces are arranged with an uncluttered, shipshape efficiency, and they have plenty of room for full armoires and oversize work desks. Bathrooms are sparklingly clean and have glass walk-in showers, though the gray tile pattern is a bit drab. One real plus is the balconies on courtyard rooms; they extend the living space and frame postcard-worthy views of Sydney’s skyline.

Beyond

With a mix of serviced apartments and suites (many with small kitchens) in addition to regular hotel rooms, the Diamant is more an upscale Sydney pied-à-terre for those in the know than a traditional hotel. Room service breakfast is available, but you won’t find a dedicated on-site restaurant or spa, and guests are directed to an outside gym.

In the Area

The Diamant’s main attraction is that it’s away from the other hotels that cluster in Sydney’s busy Central Business District and just a few minutes’ walk from trendy Darlinghurst and Surry Hills, where guests can do some damage to their credit cards while shopping the one-off designer boutiques on Oxford Street. The hotel is also just a short stroll from two of Sydney’s trendiest streets for restaurants and bars, Victoria and Crown, where you’ll find perennial favorites like the aptly named minuscule Pocket Bar, the always busy Gazebo Wine Garden in nearby Surry Hills and the eccentric British Raj–style Victoria Room, as well as the city’s best thin crust pizza at Lucio Pizzeria.

Excellent hotel, room and service thanks to Cesar & Portia. I was warmly welcomed from the entrance to the hotel. The room on the 12th floor was fantastic and very well equipped. One of the best hotels I've ever slept in.

Roberta & Cesar made staying away from home very comfortable during a recent business trip. I would highly recommend The Larmont when travelling for work. Free Yoga, breakfast with champagne and some free bar snacks (due to booking direct) were all small touches that made a huge difference. Lastly, the hotel bed and pillows were truely amazing, I did not want to leave bed each morning!
