Lovely location on the sea front, and if you look parking can be found. Some very good Maltese Restraunts near. The hotel was adequate, but many things went wrong: 1. Bathroom lights not working 2. Another room key opened our room 3. An ordered bottle of wine never arrived, apparently the room number was lost 4. Staff at breakfast were... More

Our room was shabby, the water in the shower shot over the bath and flooded the floor and the hair dryer was out of the '60's! The room desperately needed painting and the little mats beside the bed were grubby. Our maid was excellent as were some of the bar staff. The furniture in the pool area on the top... More

Not a terrible place but: bathroom and closet doors in my room were broken when I arrived. Asked several times to fix it and did not have any luck . The room was clean though. if you have a breakfast in the hotel and stay a minute after 10 am (when the breakfast ends) you may be asked quite rudely... More

Stayed for 4 nights as part of a tour group. The restaurant was kept open for our group as we were late arriving. Great to have such a nice welcome, a couple of glasses of wine and some dinner. We liked the food here, it was all buffet style, always hot and the presentation was good. We usually ate quiet... More

Stayed here with friends for a week. The staff on the whole were very helpful but the hotel is tired and dated. Good location for buses and the seafront, and has free wifi. Hotel could not provide us with a safety deposit box for 24 hours after arrival as they "did not have enough" Not good enough, especially as they... More

Just back from holiday in Malta. We arrived late on a Saturday night to discover that the Diplomat had no room available, even though we were clearly booked into it. The hotel had booked us into Kennedy Nova. They told us that they had let the travel agent know this a few days earlier........ We subsequently had to spend 2... More

Although I think the hotel could do with an update I gave it a 4 rating as there were a lot of positives. It's very clean and well maintained and most of the staff are lovely. Having seen St Julian's, Paceville and Valetta we were glad we chose Sliema as it is a little bit quieter but also has plenty... More

Diplomat Hotel was our first of three on a SAGA tour. Imposing, good position opposite the promenade. A regular SAGA hotel, with a SAGA lounge. Well worn & I felt that some refurbishment would be required to justify 4* standard. Room good, amenities good. Free wifi. With one sullen exception, all staff were pleased to go that 'extra mile' to... More
