          Hi, just booked a Standard Room Sea View for myself (as my wife unable to travel at his time and I in need of a break following hip replacement rehab and before my pending return to work in March. Travel Republic confirmed to me that this is definitely a full sea view room at front of hotel So just wondered if anyone can provide me with a personal view of this type of room? I have requested a high floor as I need to be able to have some relaxation and quiet, when I am not out and about. Also I am arriving on the usual AirMalta scheduled flight arriving in Malta Airport at 10:30pm so probably only get to hotel by around 11:30pm to Midnight. Has anyone any good or bad experiences of arriving at this hotel in these circumstances late at night - ie what has been the friendliness/helpfulness of hotel staff in such a scenario? I am not used to travelling alone without my wife so I will be quite vulnerable on arrival on 20/2/2016 and as I am disabled I really hope the staff at the Diplomat will really try to make me feel welcomed, cared for and valued as a guest/customer/human being on arrival and until my check out on 29/2/2016. Also as I have some mobility problem, any tips on best caring supportive transfer taxi companies etc from airport, particularly at this time of night? Many Thanks, Cuchillo
