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

Rooms do not look like the photos. Lobby looks fine but room floors resemble a prison or a school. Rooms themselves are ancient and rundown. Wifi internet is almost non existent and could not be used practically if anyone else on my floor was also using it. I checked out hours after checking in and wrote off the cost as... More

Place is in need of renovation. Service is professional and friendly. My big gripe is mini bar, no pricing etc. I was made to believe water was complementary, was not. Would say very deceptive. So buy your own.

What a difference! i dont believe any maintenance has been done since that time and the rooms are... More

I stayed at the Diplomat hotel for a budget reason. The hotel facade was typically normal, lobby was nice and clean.. The rooms were clean and comfortable.. The Restaurant was nothing to talk about but did put out fair food... Remember you get what you pay for... This Hotel DID NOT have Free breakfast included with stay like many of... More
