The Diament empire is responsible for some of the best hotels in the Katowice region, and this one is the jewel in their crown. Set inside a fairytale 19th century tenement it's almost possible to imagine Mr. Kipling carving the façade out of marzipan. But while this looks like a piece of history from the outside, from the inside it stands out as one of the most modern hotels in the city. Recently retouched rooms come in earth tones, and feature amenities such as free internet, satellite TV and spacious bathrooms. The fourth floor features rooms with an even higher standard and a new area for billiards. There is a currency exchange point on the ground floor, open Mon-Sat.
