What I thought where the Hotel excelled was in its service staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The restaurant has fairly good food. The location is little far to walk to Santo Nino church and you will need a taxi to hit Ayala Mall. Mango street is around the corner so that is a bonus if your out to have... More

If you in Cebu and not interested in spending to much money on a room than the Diplomat is a good choice. Its clean and the restaurant is decent. Standards slip a bit in Cebu but the staff here are great and helpful. Its centrally located and within walking distance of malls and shops. I recommend the top two floors... More

I have stayed at the Diplomat on many occasions and have never been disappointed with the room or the service. I stayed there for 6 months last year and for 2.5 months in 2014. The location is excellent with Robinson Mall a short walk. Also several restaurants in walking distance. If your looking for a clean room at a decent... More

Over the past 3 weeks I stayed here 3 time 3 nights. Nothing special about it, but the rooms are clean and cleaned every day, the serice is good and the price reasonable. Internet connection is poor. Staff is kind and helpful. Restaurant is o.k., but rather expensive.

I agree with some other reviewers that the place has become a bit run down, but it still represents value for money. The rooms are small but adequate. There was enough room for an extra bed. Bed okay but small pillows - but just ask for another. Air-con not noisy. Wi-fi did not work well. There was a notice saying... More
