Hotel Diplomat surely did dissapoint me with its small congested rooms, poor old airconditionng systems and rooms where you wont get any mobile network coverage . You have to come downstairs to the lobby to make or receive calls. I understand its a budget hotel but still expected better service from it. Noticed even the staffs & people sitted in... More

Terrible is one single word to explain the place. We had some work in New market area and landed up in this place near by. Stayed for just one day and moved out as its just terrible. narrow corridors and small rooms low roofs - all disadvantages. avoid
