4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The rooms were neat and tidy and the toilets clean. We stayed for one night on July 3rd. The restaurant is being renovated. As the building is old there is continuous renovations. The staff are very polite and helpful and the rates are reasonable. I definitely recommend this hotel and will not hesitate to stay there again.

The Diplomat is in the diplomatic enclave of Delhi and thus the name. However, few diplomats stay here. We had frequented the hotel's restaurant many times and enjoyed the food and quality of service. Unfortunately, the hotel does not match the restaurant. (which is now closed for renovations). Despite reservations and a paper showing the reservation, the hotel desk clerk... More

A little but very nice, calm and cozy hotel in a nice location. It might have been more than luck but I was given room # 203 - like your own penthouse. Spent a half day on the huge balcony. Very helpful and nice staff. I will definitely come back to this hotel.
