“Very Good”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Stayed at Diplomat 11th - 18th February. Found the hotel very good in all aspects. At arrival the reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was very clean and the bathroom could not be faulted. The food in the restaurant was good with a excellent varied selection and the chef was always there to assist and advise. The bar staff catered for your needs in a very efficient and pleasant manner. There was always some entertainment every evening but not in your face and if needed you could avoid it and move into the quiet bar. Overall the hotel was better than expected and we would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: 7th floor sea view room is a must.

The hotel is located in a great area! The sea is just outside then front door. The staff was excellent and helpful. Room was very good, 6th floor with a small balcony. The breakfast package that we purchased was well worth the cost. Good variety of items to chose from. The bus stop is about 100 yards to the west of the hotel. Across the street (Tower), is a beautiful walling and jogging path. Many people walking and jogging around the area even late. It is a very safe area. We would highly recommend this hotel to our friends. Great experience.

Good Hotel on sea front, the buses run on a regular basis from near the hotel, Hotel staff friendly, and helpful, good food, always something to find to eat to ones taste.For what we payed for a week there with Chevron travel, we had no complaints whatsoever. rooms fine, always kept clean, would recommend this hotel, There is a lovely prom opposite the hotel which is on the flat, so any one with walking difficulties, would find this an advantage, as Malta can be hilly. Bus fares are 1 euro 50 for a day each which is so cheap,and even cheaper for a weeks pass, hop on and off.

It´s the third time I´ve been to Malta and Sliema is probably the best choice for a one week long stay. A hotel on the seafront (just cross the road and you are there) makes it all simple - still, the central location and vicinity of Valletta gives your stay a different angle than another more seaside like beach resort.

The hotel is perfectly all right. clean enough, staff: friendly, approachable. The food is good, especially dinner, and service is nice, good English cook, nice selection.

Thank you very mch.

Room Tip: I would definitely go for the sea view. Really nice.

I have been to this hotel six times in the last four years. For business or pleasure it is ideally situaated (beach front) at one of the best holidays destinations in Malta. The restaurant is top class but what I like best is the sea view and the cafe' fronting Sliema promonade. You can sit there evenings and enjoy Malta passing bye. Service is excellent. I am Malta born and I know hotels in Malta but coming home from Australia there is no other hotel better for having clean romms (everyday), friendly and efficient staff, front desk, and especially the front bar with Karl, Louis and.Piere. Managment and office staff are a delight to deal with. My wife thinks this is home away from home.

Room Tip: Front room views are excellent

We went to the Diplomat for new year and were really pleased with the location of the hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful and always made you feel welcome. We were there on half board, and the breakfasts were really lovely. We ate in the buffet restaurant twice and the food was good, and there was a gala dinner one night in the ambassador restaurant which was lovely. The best bit of any meal was the soup, no matter what it was, it was always fabulous. The room was made up every day by the lovely housekeeping staff and it was always spotless, as were the public areas.

However, unfortunately I will not be going back to the Diplomat and this is really due to things that are outwith the current staffs control. There is no balcony to speak of in any of the rooms and while this didn't matter in December, I would really miss that in the summer as I love to sit and watch the world go by in the evening. The decor is a bit tired and could be doing with an update as well. The main issue for us was the layout of the bathroom - there was very little space which was fine for us as we are able bodied, but for many other people this would cause a huge amount of trouble. Finally, there was nothing on in the hotel (that we knew off) for New Years Eve, which was a shame. In all honesty there may have been something on, but it wasn't advertised so we decided to go elsewhere that night instead. All in all, this was our first trip to Malta and we loved it so we will go back, and the location of the Diplomat was so good we would stay close by, but sadly we won't be going back there. As another reviewer said, it was perfectly adequate.
