The hotel is old and needs improvements but the semi suite room was large and comfortable. The staff are friendly but the wood cupboards were eaten with ants and will crumblet soon. The location is very good with close proximity to different restaurants, Robinson mall and the night bars of Mango square.Safety cabinet in the room and good wifi service.

Good bed, large room with Wifi, fridge and code-safe, quite (once you got used to the aircon). An easy walk to Mango and Robinson passing some beggars. Jeepneys passing Ramos street all go downtown via Colon.

Decent rooms but stay away from The restaurant. We waited 40 mins for food that was supposed to take 15 minutes but in The end never showed up. The room was as expected but nothing wrong there. You could See that it was old but it didn't matter. 3/5

It's a very old rundown hotel, but it could be better maintained. The rooms are dark & gloomy. The towels have stains, and the bathroom door have some holes on one side. The rooms could stand better cleaning & repair. Internet is alright, but has share limits, which is not practical, since we all carry at least 3 gadgets each.... More

This hotel needs a major renovation. Everything in it is old and dilapidated. Although, for budget conscious travelers, this is of good value since it is close to the city center. Rooms need to be sound-proofed and the aircon should be replaced since it is very noisy which can interfere with a good night sleep.

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
