I was unsure what I'd let myself in for when I booked the diplomat what with all the mixed reviews on here. Would I stay here again, possibly depending on any other offers available at the time or if my friend has got any space at their bed & breakfast. I had a great week with a friend, we spent... More

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...

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.

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... More

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.
