“Very good experience”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The only a few small things I consider as a minus are:
- Wifi signal is a little bit low and you have to "search" for it in the room.
- A/C units are old and noisy, but they do their job quite well.
- There's no sad beach nearby (although I wouldn't complain about this because this is normal in Malta).

There's a nearby supermaker and Sliema is a very wonderful city full of life an tradition.
I totally recommend it.

While there the Hotel was having a complete upgrade, Our room and bathroom was very clean and bright, with balcony. We had a lovely stay, staff were friendly and helpful. pool was out of action when we stayed "Shame" but looked very welcoming. We had the chance to visit one of the front rooms It was lovely and had a wonderful view out to sea worth the upgrade on our next visit. The Owner and managment staff along with all the other staff went out of there way to make sure the upgrade did not interfear with our stay. The diplomat is situated in a perfect spot for travelling around malta. we met some lovely people and would recommend this hotel to every one

Room Tip: Try and get a front room with sea views. We had a side room with balcony which as I said above was v...

Average experience. It does the job for the money. Breakfast is OK but not that rich. However the guys in the reception are helpful. You can request a late checkout for about 30 euro. The pool on the roof top is not great as you hear the noise from the elevators.

The diplomat is in desperate need of an update. The decor the building is like walking into a hotel of the 70s/80s
Great view if you have a room at the front of the hotel. Bad bad breakfast- lack of flavour and some things like the juice just tasted totally wrong.

had a lovely stay, staff were friendly and helpful. pool was a welcome sight at the end of the day. our room was lovely and had a wonderful view out to sea. the lady in the restaurant with ponytail and glasses looked after us well. the diplomat is situated in a perfect spot for travelling around malta. we met some lovely people and would recommend this hotel to every one.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view. worth the extra.

OK so this is a budget hotel and the price reflects this, having said that it was exceptionally clean and the room, although in need of a bit of TLC, was comfortable and spacious. We had a 'side sea view room with small balcony' which was accurate but in effect meant overlooking a somewhat dilapidated apartment block and the balcony was more of a stone outcrop with a railing, we also became more familiar than we would have liked with the bin men's routine 6.45 prompt and 7 days a week, at least we never overslept! But who goes to Malta to sit in their hotel room? The location was perfect for us as it was an easy walk (10 mins if you cut through the back streets) to Sliema ferries and also to Baluta Bay. We only had breakfast which was very good and items were replenished frequently. Last but not least, the staff were helpful and friendly.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Diplomat and was not disappointed. From start to finish the staff were amazing and very friendly. Rooms were imaculate and kept to a very high standard throughout my stay. Free wifi, which was accessible at a touch. I look forward to staying here again in the near future.

Room Tip: All rooms are good
