Location is pretty good and pretty close to airport and nearby tourist attraction. It was under renovation is what I was told when requested for the room on the first floor with balcony. Decent service with decent food. Go for the rooms on first floor as it has balcony attached to it.

I stayed two nights here whilst on business. It describes itself as a boutique hotel and it is small. I had a suite with a sizeable terrace. The staff were friendly to the guests and eager to please. Not so friendly to each other though and I witnessed a Fawlty-esque argument at the reception desk one morning. I also had... More

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
