Potts Point

Diamant Hotel

14 Kings Cross Rd.
Sydney, New South Wales, 2000, Australia
TEL: 61-2-9295-8888

This glossy, sleek high-rise created something of a sensation when it opened in late 2007, as it put the surrounding neighborhood (a still-gritty area of Kings Cross) on the high-style map. Just slightly larger than boutique size, the property is boldly modern, with 76 minimalist rooms outfitted with 42-inch flat-screen TV’s, Xbox Playstations, Wi-Fi, and glass walk-in showers big enough for two. Welcome extras include fancy hair products from Kevin Murphy and room windows that actually open. East-facing rooms have private balconies (although there’s a fair bit of street noise, so outdoor lingering isn’t exactly romantic).

Room to Book: William Street Boulevard rooms have wonderful city skyline views.

Insider Tip:

Make a booking at the hotel’s restaurant, Penny’s Lane. The accessible Euro bistro menu is one of the best in the neighborhood (try the braised lamb shoulder with eggplant, cherry tomatoes, and basil).
