A little bit boring hotel where our room was noting more than ok, good AC, poor tv reception, and a lousy WiFi. The breakfast was ok, bread, various cold cuts, hot food, typically English (Beans, eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, fried tomato, omelette). Location is good. Never tested dinner, don't look so good... The Diplomat Hotel realy need a facelift. I...

Was supposed to spend 3 nights for a friend's wedding, but I had to change my reservation a few days prior to arrival due to a change of schedule and I ended up spending only 2 nights. I had booked a room with full sea-view but upon arrival I was told it was not available and I was given a...

Good hotel . Small rooms and very small balcony but clean. The restaurant looks not so cosy but the breakfast was very good with everything we wanted. The Staf was helpful . You can bath near Here but it's not a beach only stone.

We stopped here for two nights thanks to TripAdvisor and other Hotel booking sites. It has a really good location really near to the beach and to the Boardwalk in Silema. You are at a walking distance from all the tourist restaurants and if you walk a little bit more you can get to the Marina. The hotel have had...

The Diplomat hotel suffers from a position maybe not so wonderful in Malta, since it is in Sliema, far from the best beaches in the North, not exactly in Valletta, where you can find the acctractions that a capital may offer, nor in S.Julians, the center of the nightlife in Malta. Nevertheless, the hotel itself is nice. The staff is...

The reception staff were terrible - totally rude, miserable and unhelpful. They were more interested in gossiping together than helping guests. The worst thing was, one night, we arrived back at the hotel at about 1am and the night receptionist was SLEEPING on a nearby sofa (not in sight) and he had LEFT ALL THE ROOM KEYS ON THE RECEPTION...

Whilst this hotel was a bit older, it was clean. Air conditioning noisy. It offered a view of the sea, but only when one leaned out over the balcony down the side street. Food was good and well presented. Restaurant staff very welcoming and friendly nothing was a bother.

We had a little problem on first day in Diplomat hotel in Sliema. Air condition in our room was broken. After one night in another place we were back and we were surprised by the Diplomat. They gave us better room with full view on sea. Everything was perfect. In our opinion Diplomat deserved to 5 BIG STARS.

I was unsure what I'd let myself in for when I booked the diplomat what with all the mixed reviews on here. Would I stay here again, possibly depending on any other offers available at the time or if my friend has got any space at their bed & breakfast. I had a great week with a friend, we spent...
