    Very good

    Would still consider staying here again when in Sliema, we didn't want to leave. Saint patrick's church was located in the near vicinity. It is so close to the airport, within 14 mins ride.

    No complaints.

    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.

    Great

    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

    Very good

    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.

    Nice

    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*.

    Nice

    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.
