  • 8,0.Very good

    It is definitely a very good choice for the price. I will most likely stay at the same place next time. The only problem was that the wifi in my room was somewhat spotty. When it was very weak, I had to go outside of the room to get proper wifi (there was a chair there so that helped a little...).

  • 4,0.Fair

    I had booked this particular hotel as the hotel website and Expedia website advised that it had a restaurant and bar lounge. In fact it does not therefore my intention to have a relaxing drink at the bar and socialise and sit at the restaurant were not met. The hotel has outsourced the restaurant next door BUT it is not the same. The hotel AND Expedia are still advertising this amenities!!! The staff in general are courteous and I was allowed to have a shower and freshen up before my evening flight.

    Great location

    The Diplomat is in a great location five minutes walk from the Gateway of India. Nice Indian breakfast at 8 a.m. and you can be on the ferry to Elephants Island at 9. The room had a very effective spinning ceiling fan and was everything you'd expect .. clean, tidy, comfortable. And ALL relatively inexpensive.
