The hotel is a colonial - style building, situated in the diplomat area in South Delhi. Location is very much convenient: airport is only 20 mins drive, close to Connaught Place and to all the embassies. I stayed only one night due to a business event. Deluxe room is equipped with all the basic necessities. The hotel has a restaurant... More

This was a very good hotel with clean rooms and toilets. Located in a quite neighbourhood in Chankyapuri, the hotel is close to major attractions and the heart of the diplomatic activity. Service was decent. Food was good but on the expensive side.

A quaint property in the Diplomatic Enclave of the capital city. The rooms are not very big, but comfortable. The bathrooms are adequate and the facilities are clean. The A/C can do with an overhaul. The breakfast was not extraordinary and could do with some additions. The food was otherwise of good quality. For the location, the price was a... More

We stayed for one day on our visit to Delhi and chose to stay at the Diplomat for its location and only for its location. Surprisingly we liked the place as it is centrally located and looks to be an ole bungalow converted into a hotel. The central a/c was however noisy. The shower cubicle was old and functioned minimally.... More

The hotel does what it says on the tin. Large, clean room which had two king size beds. Modern TV. Basic furnishings but consistent with what I would expect from a 3 star hotel. Nothing flamboyant but equally nothing bad. The beds were comfortable. We arrived In India at 1am so just needed a room near the hotel as our... More

It's a small boutique hotel that should actually be a 3 star. The rooms are decent for the price you pay. There were no toiletries in the bathroom. The prices in the restaurant are actually quite high. The hotel is quite close to the Swiss embassy, which is why I decided to stay here.

I had to stay here because of a client closely and the two days were spent lousily. Although i was supposed to be in a suite room, these guys tried to trick me into a lower category room.
