I stayed in Diplomat Hotel for a couple of times. Last month, I visited Cebu again. I arrived at Mactan around 3 or 4 in the morning. Since I arrived early and have known Diplomat Hotel for quite sometime and planned to stay there for a day I was a bit surprised with the information I was given by the... More

My usual hotel on Ramos was fully booked so checked out diplomat. Staff were friendly from start to finish and the rooms were clean with all the usual amenities. The location is good for going to either uptown or downtown. A couple good restaraunt nearby, especially the Thai place. Robinsons and mango ave are only 10 minute walk or flag... More

Not very new one but quite okay for a small budget and very friendly stuff. The location is really in the heart of Cebu. The rooms are not the latest standard but it's well maintained and AC is working well and loud. I stayed there a couple of times and would go there again.

This a two star hotel at the budget end so dont expect too much. Saying that room and air con were more than adequate the setting is comfortable and the restaurant has a decent menu as well as room service. If you are looking for the bright lights of mango avenue they are just a 10 minwalk or cheap taxi... More

Stayed here for one night. Good location.. absolutely loved the breakfast as they serve my fave dried fish - Danggit! I have to admit that it's a bit old but it was of great location. A bit weird for asking a deposit. (though refundable)

Stayed here a few years ago ... nothing has changed it's still a dump... no maintenence carried out at all.This place is very old and the rooms are dirty and smell of smoke plus they are other guests sharing your room (roaches). You have to pay for your stay up front and leave a 1,000 pesos deposit that you don't... More

Quite a contrast between the rooms on offer, the first time I stayed here the room was clean, well presented and decorated. The second time I stayed the room was a little run down but the AC unit was so noisy it felt like I was sleeping in a bus station. This time there was paint peeling from the walls... More
