Very comfortable stay. Good-sized rooms, well cared for and clean. Breakfasts well laid out and the service was excellent. Very convenient for bus services - to Valetta and to Mdina. Sauna in the basement and swimming pool on roof.

Located alongside the seafront at Sliema, the hotel has all facilities needed for a good stay. Room was very clean with excellent facilities except for TV channels - which were not as advertised in the hotel brochure, but you don't go to Malta to watch TV! Location excellent for cheap Malta buses which are appallingly crowded. Also good for local...

I stayed at the Diplomat for almost 4 weeks after a cancer treatment, and already before my stay I was exceptional happy with the fast responses, the girl Grazielle in the sales department, seems like she were replying/working around the clock. The hotel is old, and worned, but the friendly faces in the reception makes up for it. Plus the...

This was our first visit to Malta and so we stayed only one week to have a look around the island and Gozo. We selected the Diplomat because its location gave us easy walking access to the sea front and then to St Julians, Sliema centre, etc. We could not have chosen better. The diplomat is a smallish, cosy, intimate...

This hotel is ideally situated overlooking the quieter waterfront area where there are beautiful promenades. It is in the Sliema area with plenty of bus stops close by. In Malta the busses are excellent and absurdly cheap - buy a 7 day pass or a one day pass. There is a shopping mall within walking distance. We booked a sea...

This hotel has many good features but also a few aspects which could be improved upon. The location is excellent opposite the sea front and bus stops nearby. The staff, especially in the dining room, are very friendly and the public areas are nicely kept. Food is well cooked with a good choice at breakfast. Our room was quiet and...
