I visited the hotel for 3 days in dec 2013. It has a good location at the Colaba peninsula, near the attractions like Gateway of India, Tahj Mahal Hotel, rest Lepolds at Colaba Causeway. The staff was very helpfull and serviceminded but the price was little to expensive for a middle class range hotel, almost 5000 Rpe per night.

Hotel Diplomat is in a fantastic location in Colaba, right behind the Taj Mahal Hotel. The rooms are old and the bathrooms are relatively sub standard. The rooms are definitely due for a renovation, but are clean nonetheless The major upside however apart from location is the great food, especially the kebabs. For the location the price was relatively ok.

Excellent location, excellent service....could not have asked for more. We would choose this hotel again for all above mentioned reasons. Breakfast a little limited, but still very good. If you come here you will not be disapointed. Superb value for every rupi.

I spent three nights at this hotel. Location is very good, right behind Taj Hotel and close to the Gateway. I guess this also justifies the price, which is in my opinion a bit high for the provided room standard in India. But honestly, I don't have any comparison in Mumbai and I heard that the city is in general...

Stayed here for four nights with my scool going daughter - wanted her to have a small vacation in Mumbai.

I stayed in this hotel for a business trip of one night. Rooms were booked by the company but payment was to be made by me and get it reimbursed. And the problem starts here, I have not seen a single hotel where you have to pay before checking in or as soon as you enter the hotel, but you...

I stayed at Hotel Diplomat for 5 nights, we had booked a standard room through Cleartrip and it was a complete disaster from the beginning. We were happy to be informed on arrival that we had been upgraded to a Deluxe Room, however the room looked like student/government accommodation and had ants crawling all over the bed that were coming...

The hotel might not be that fancy when you compare with the next door, the Taj. But if you think about somewhere clean economical convenient staff friendly or breakfast that fuzzy people can eat, the Diplomat is just for you. Plus Starbucks is just opposite, the only place I dare to have my iced coffee.What more I can say... to...

Located just behind Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Colaba - the hotel offers accommodation in nostalgic rooms with all necessary services including laundry, direct dialling, room service, mini fridge in rooms and so on. Basic functional rooms with just ok bedding quality. Location is too good with ease of access having a taxi stand just outside the hotel.
