Short break

Advertised as 4* but more like a 3 - hotel was clean- good choice of breakfasts - bedroom was a good size but basic with a very small bathroom - ask for balcony and seaview but was more of a side sea view with a small balcony - was an older hotel which needs to be updated

The best thing about my stay was...

Good location right on the promenade

NICE HOTEL

After checking in we were told we weren´t stopping there as there was a problem with our room. We were not the only ones. We were moved to the Windsor around the corner. In fairness to the Diplomat we were given free evening meals in compensation. When we returned after 3 days the room was not ready. However, the rooms were lovely, clean, warm, with tea and coffee making facilities, and a nice bathroom. Food at the Hotel had a good variety, and good. Staff in the dining room were very pleasant.

Another happy stay at The Diplomat !!

This was our second year to stay at The Diplomat and as before it was up to expectations. The welcome, although late at night was great. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming, the concierge couldn't be more helpful. Our room was spacious and very clean. The hotel caters for a mature clientele which means a good night's sleep is guaranteed. Early wake up with ongoing building close by but not an issue. Breakfasts are generous and varied. Location is the key!! I'd highly recommend this hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

The brilliant location close to both Sliema and St Julian's and the lovely, quiet rooftop pool.

Surprisingly decent

We booked this hotel as we wanted to be near to the nightlife and restaurants but not completely in the thick of things. The location was very good, it was just a short walk to Balluta bay in the evenings which had some lovely restaurants. The hotel is right on the promenade so you are very close to the sea. There is no beach at Sliema however we sunbathed on the rocks a few times and swam in the sea there. It's a 10/15 minute walk to Sliema harbour where many boat trips depart from. We walked to Paceville for a night out in about 25minutes or it's a 10minute bus ride away. The room was an adequate size and was cleaned daily, with fresh towels. There was a small fridge which was handy, and tea/ coffee facilities in the room. We had a tiny balcony with a side sea view. It wasn't big enough to sit out on unfortunately. Breakfast was a variety of cold meats, bread, fruit salad, full cooked hot breakfast, cereals and sweet cake! The pool area on the roof was decent by Maltese standards. Having holidayed around Europe I have to say that the hotels in the area seem to be of a lower standard generally in comparison. The pool areas are mostly very small and space is not a luxury they can indulge in. Having said that we enjoyed lounging on the roof terrace and using the pool a few times and it was kept nice and clean. The view from up there was lovely too. The pool bar served slightly dodgy cocktails but tasty cheap wine as well as hot food and ice cream. The staff were all very friendly. The hotel was very easy to get to from the airport. We paid €1.30 for a bus which departed from the airport and took about 50 minutes. We had a safe in our room which we ha to pay to use, it was €10 deposit and €12 for 9 days.

Family holiday with four generations.

We all enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Spent mornings by the roof top pool while our 8 year old enjoyed playing in it. Lovely prom across the road where I had my daily early morning walk in both directions. All staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine with a good selection. Bus stop only a two minute walk from hotel. One and a half euros will take you on as many journeys around the island on buses in one day. There are plenty of restaurants and fast food places nearby. Room was comfortable. The air conditioning was a bit noisy but wouldn't put me off returning in the future.

The best thing about my stay was...

The people of Malta are the friendliest I have ever came accross!

customer service was very good onsite rep for tours from early morning to 5pm.our room was spotless clean and above average in comfort and furnishings.side sea view from small balcony.buffet breakfast had excellant choice in hot or cold meals.evening meal gave plenty of choice of good food with some evenings of local specialities-something to please everyone .restaurant staff lovely.The hotel is on coast road with promenade opposite for long walks.Bus stops handy 5mins walk awayto down into Sliema which is few minutes ride away or 15 minutes walk.St Julians in opposite direction 20 minutes walk.

The best thing about my stay was...

Being able to hop on the bus and be anywhere on island within 25 minutes .weekly tickets so cheap 6 euro.50. although get crowded are plentiful..Vallletta is a must. we will return

Good Location

The hotel is situated between Sliema and St Julians Bay so there was a great choice of restaurants within easy walking distance. Hotel was perfect as a place for a late evening drink and to sleep as the room was clean and functional. We had a side sea view but you had to stand on the small balcony to see the sea. Breakfast was good but dining room has no natural light so we didn't eat in the evenings there.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location of the hotel and the promenade along the seafront.

Good location and friendly staff, but a few gotchas!

Location is good for shopping with great views. The rooms are nice, fairly large and they are kept very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. overall I enjoyed my stay with them. Gotchas - Safe keys and use of the sauna incur a charge? If it wasn't for this, I would give it 4 stars.
