We choose this hotel because it was central to the bars, restaurants and main sites, in fact, there were a few restaurants situated along the same road as Diamonds and Pearls hotel. I have stayed in a good few hotels and a few apartments, but this place felt more like an apartment as there was no reception. We had to check in late, so we had to ring the door bell, which was connected to the owner/managers phone. Once the usual paperwork was done, we got our key to the room.
The decor downstairs is amazing. Lovely living space and a good size bar for drinks and i would assume for breakfast also, with a lovely courtyard towards the rear.
I think there are only 4 rooms in the main building- not sure if there are others towards the back- but be warned, if you get the top floor like I did, then you have to climb three flights of narrow spiral stairs.
Our room was very spacious with a nice terrace, but the room needed updating: fresh lick of paint on the walls (wiping the dead mosquito of the wall would have been an idea too!); updating the furniture to match the chic decor they have downstairs; change the hairdryer; a proper bathroom sink (not the onces you get in cloakrooms and (I know this may be too much to ask but) better water pressure from the shower. The bathroom was also separate from the toilet, which was a little arkward, as you had to walk around a tablet to get to the bathroom.
Overall, the stay was fine, but a over-priced for what it was.
