The location of the hotel is very good. Its beside everything important for tourism purpose. But the room is very small and old and very unclean. The service of the hotel stuff is not bad but they are very very dirty. The hall way is old and was being repainted ... Overall a average for low budget

Almost everytime i travel to mumbai, this hotel is my favourite. Rooms are nice, friendly staff, good food & above all very nice location (adjacent to taj). Markets, restaurants, coffee shops, india gate, marine drive are about 10 mins away from this place. Very peaceful hotel, nice rooms

I chose this place due to its location. Is just behind Taj Mahal Palace, one of the main in Mumbai. The services is good, good price with breakfast inclusive. The hotel bar is a nice place to have a drink after a long walking day. Do not expect luxury, the hotel is good equipped for what you need as basics:... More

Having been desperate for somewhere to stay in Mumbai during a festival we were directed here by another hotel. It's a bit utilitarian, in a government-hotel-from-the-sixties kind of way, but it was clean, the rooms were a good size, the shower was good, there was a bath, and plenty of cable channels. We got room service once and the food... More

Stayed in the Diplomat for a night in January. Very close to India gate, Taj palace and other south mumbai Colaba attractions. Had old style pull- elevators which made the stay more fun, as there was always the imminent threat of danger when going to your room. Occasional bug crawling around the bathroom, but not too bad - more difficult... More

My daughter n I arrived back home from India. We wer in Hotel Diplomat n we spent good time there. The hotel is located behind Taj Palace n just few mins away from Gateway of India. It's in a safe n secured area. I would recommend others to stay in this hotel if on a 2-3 days trip.

This was my fourth time staying at Hotel Diplomat. Generally, I would recommend this hotel because it's convenient, usually clean (sometimes a few ants) and the staff is quite good.After this trip though, I will reconsider for the next time. This time I paid extra to have free wifi in my room but it didn't work. I had to stand... More
