We stayed here from 7-14 May 2017. Although a bit dated it was very clean and comfortable. The hotel has narrow frontage and runs a long way down a side street which can be noisy at night (Mostly people just being a bit rowdy and thoughtless in the early hours). It is in a very good position directly opposite the...

I had read several reviews of this hotel after I had booked it. Some were a little derogatory. However I can comment that this was a really nice hotel.Yes I agree it needed upgrading but the staff and service were second to none. We had a lovely room with a sea view and were advised beforehand that it could be...

The Diplomat Hotel is a nice hotel in Sliema area close to sea and seapromenad. The hotel is a bit outdated but the rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is typical English. There could be some more variation . The WIFI was free but very slow. I had a nice sea view.

This hotel is centrally located in Sliema, rated as four star. We had a large room, which was clean on our arrival. Good en suite, plenty of hot water. The room was cleaned daily. We took the half board option. All the meals were to a good standard and various options were available, with a different menu daily. The staff...

Maltese star ratings are often ambitious, this is not a 4*, more akin to a 3*, however a very pleasant lobby with small bar greets you, and the hotel is on the seafront and main bus route, and a short walk to the shopping area of Sliema. Staff were generally very helpful and welcoming, with the exception of the two...

The localtion is good and we had a sea view room on 7 floor so we got an incredible view from our room. Just a few steps to the bus stop where you can take local buses to many places around the island. The breakfast is good with enough options. Although the furniture in the room is old and worn...

Hotel is very old and have humidity smell, but it has a good location. Walking distance to ferry stops and Slieme city center. Hotel has really a rich and good breakfast. Wifi connection is weak in rooms. Rooms are small. Cleaning is so so. There are small tears on the sheets. For 2-3 nights stay, it is ok.

We stayed at the Diplomat at the end of our 9 days in Malta and Gozo. We found the location perfect, the staff helpful and friendly, the breakfast was a real delight, a buffet with a good selection of nourishing and delicious foods, our room clean and roomy and comfortable.
