I arrived at the Diplomat because another hotel (which I will next review) was 100% unstayable! I was familiar with the Diplomat location as I've stayed at the 5star hotel up the block. Being in town for one day after nightmarish travel, I only need clean and quiet accommodations. Had it not been for Daniel at the front desk and...

Getting to know this hotel was a very pleasant surprise. I booked it at last minute for my weekend in London and still I got a nice room for a hundred euros. The room has a cool bed, clean and fully working shower, not to mention its way bigger than most hotel rooms with the same price range. The only...

Friendly helpful staff. The twin room was a good size and very clean . The building itself is beautiful with all the original features, sweeping staircase and domed ceiling. Location is great, Hyde park, V&A museum within walking distance . Would definately visit again and recommend to friends and family.

This is a fantastic hotel. The staff are super friendly, rooms have everything you need, with a real homely feel. The executive room upstairs is particularly good. Very close to Sloane Square and Kings Rd so great location. Love it and will be back!

My room was affordable and comfortable but not spacious. I was upgraded from a single to a double that had a good shower but poor lighting in the bath. The staff are skilled and friendly, and the breakfast is a well done standard English one with eggs, bacon, sausage, beans, and tomatoes. Croissants, cereal and fruit are also on offer....

The room was very spacious (even with three ladies & luggage!) and within walking distance to most major sights. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was in a lovely room downstairs. I felt it was a good value for the money.
