    Superb

    the veiw,personnel, food and location were excellent

    We did not like the top bed covers divided in two,it was impossible to get heat and so it felt cold.

    Superb

    The staff was great. It does cater to older clients but that means no problem to get a great sleep. Don't understand the complaint about breakfast. It was the most comprehensive buffet that we saw in 5 weeks of travel in Italy, Sicily and Malta.Hotel a little dated but clean and the price could not be bettered for this location.

    Was value for money. Did'n't cost very much so you get what you pay for.

    Hotel very shabby and badly needs refurbishment

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Sea view from the room is excellent. Location is good - near all points of interest, but at night you hear only the sea (if the window is opened), not music from the clubs or cafes, or something like this.

    Furniture looks shabby. Shower gel smelled like it's rotten. No balcony. Very weak and unstable wi-fi signal in the room.

    Good

    The Diplomat was in a very good position on the main sea front promenade and a 15 minute walk into the main town with lots of bars and restaurants on the way. The buffet breakfast was very good with lots of choice.

    The air-conditioning was not cold enough for us. After being examined by the maintenance, it seemed that there was nothing wrong with it and seemed to be the accepted temperature for the locals. Do not choose a room at the front of the hotel as there is an outside bar which is open till 2.00/3.00am and gets quite noisy and lively. The hotel was clean enough, but needs a sprucing up, a coat of paint, was a bit run down for a 4*.

    Good

    Very helpful staff, nice view to the coast.

    The hotel must be renovated (curtains, furniture, etc), it is quite old. Moreover, the breakfast is served on the underground floor and looks a bit miserable. There is also some noise, as the hotel in on the main road.

    Fabulous

    - staff was polite - services available e.g. pool on the roof, cafeteria in the lobby, fast wifi in the room - position at the waterfront promenade

    - old design - cheap looking environment despite hotel seems to be 4 star - lack of fresh fruit and vegetable for breakfast

    Superb

    Perfect location. Exceptionally helpful staff - they provided all possible assistance while recovering our luggage that we left on a bus coming from airport. Pool on the roof - it served well to fight August midday heat. Watching fireworks while sitting in the pool also made perfect end of Saturday.

    Good

    The location of this Hotel is excellent if you want to be able to get around Malta. Buses are right outside the hotel and you can even get to the hotel by bus to and from airport. Reception staff very friendly

    The maid does not understand what Do Not Distrub sign means. Twice I had this on the door but she still walked in to ask if I wanted room clean. Even when I said I did not want to have room cleaned (as I was asleep when she walked in ) she still came back a few hours after and insisted that she had to clean room. Someone should explain what it really means when she sees this sign on door handle

    location

    Cleanliness of the room (bed sheets / curtain / bathroom / towels). It is definitely not a 4 star hotel. probably 1 star with a swimingpool on the roof!! The hotel is very old and as is everything in the rooms (toilets/bath/towels/beds...). you can have much more for this price.
