It has been some time that I had been thinking about trying this hotel in Belgravia. I've read previous, not completely positive reviews on the Diplomat, so I had some doubts about my choice. Most of the guests complained about the old building, the tiny lift, run down condition of the rooms, etc. Well, I can tell, that my experience with Diplomat was 100 % positive! The building is really old, but well kept, just one of the typical townhouses of Belgravia, which is one of the best addresses in London. I got the Mayfair room on the 2nd floor. It was large and clean, with very comfortable double bed. The weather was hot in London during my stay and there was no airconditioning in the hotel, but the room was safe to leave the windows open during night, so I had no problem with the heat. Breakfast was plenty, with hot and cold buffet. Service was quick and polite. Reception people were also kind and friendly. All in all, it proved to be a good choice, and I can recommend it for everybody who'd like to stay at a good location, close to Sloane Square and Knightsbridge tube stations, which are just a short walk from the hotel. If you travel from/to Heathrow, location is especially convenient, as you can take the Piccadilly Line direct to Knightsbridge and just walk to the hotel. Victoria (coach and railway station) is not far, either. I'm sure to be back here the next time when in London.
