The hotel had a good location and well supplied by local buses. The staff were friendly and the hotel very clean and breakfast was good. But very disappointed with the noise levels - we had to sleep the whole week with our ear plugs in even when we moved rooms further to the back of the hotel.

Just returned from 11 nights at The Diplomat (part work, part leisure). I would certainly recommend it, especially for the following reasons: location; sea views; price; transport links; friendly staff; cleanliness; gym. Having travelled through most of Malta, I think the Diplomat is the best located hotel on the island. It is on the seafront in the upmarket Sliema district,... More

We booked a week half board at this hotel with a sea view room included. First impressions were OK but it doesn't really have the appeal of the photographs on their web site. The room we were given for our first night was a side room with a view on the building next door. When we complained we were given... More

Very comfortable stay. Good-sized rooms, well cared for and clean. Breakfasts well laid out and the service was excellent. Very convenient for bus services - to Valetta and to Mdina. Sauna in the basement and swimming pool on roof.

I stayed at the hotel with a friend whilst visiting Malta. It is a nice hotel, they have good sized rooms, clean and tidy. The room had a television, a fridge and a mini bar. The bathroom was nice and spacious too. The staff at the hotel were helpful easy to contact. The hotel also had a 'library' which consisted... More

Located alongside the seafront at Sliema, the hotel has all facilities needed for a good stay. Room was very clean with excellent facilities except for TV channels - which were not as advertised in the hotel brochure, but you don't go to Malta to watch TV! Location excellent for cheap Malta buses which are appallingly crowded. Also good for local... More

I stayed at the Diplomat for almost 4 weeks after a cancer treatment, and already before my stay I was exceptional happy with the fast responses, the girl Grazielle in the sales department, seems like she were replying/working around the clock. The hotel is old, and worned, but the friendly faces in the reception makes up for it. Plus the... More

This was our first visit to Malta and so we stayed only one week to have a look around the island and Gozo. We selected the Diplomat because its location gave us easy walking access to the sea front and then to St Julians, Sliema centre, etc. We could not have chosen better. The diplomat is a smallish, cosy, intimate... More

This hotel is ideally situated overlooking the quieter waterfront area where there are beautiful promenades. It is in the Sliema area with plenty of bus stops close by. In Malta the busses are excellent and absurdly cheap - buy a 7 day pass or a one day pass. There is a shopping mall within walking distance. We booked a sea... More
