Nice Place

clean room and helpful polite honest staff.
I found the Diplomat to be a hospitable hotel. The room clean and the staff kind. The room price is very reasonable. I will stay there again if given the chance.

Nice place

Great Lobby, friendly staff, nice room.
Great place. Would definitely recommend. A great value for your money and a pretty decent location. The staff is really friendly and there is an inexpensive spa in the building.

Satisfactory stay

The location is good. The service is decent.
I stayed for 3 nights at the Diplomat. The room is decent for the price. You really can't ask for too much for $30 US. The service was good. I asked for a room change to a larger queen sized bed and they complied within one day. The room is a bit old and the water pressure in the shower could be stronger but you get what you pay for. The main problem was the noise in the hallway. You could hear the staff in the morning if you tend to sleep in late. Other than that, for a short stay, it is a pretty good deal.
Shopping Tip: The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to Robinson's Department store which has a good food court.

Nice place

clean room polite and honest staff
I found the Diplomat to be a nice place to stay with few if any cons. The staff was amiable at all times and the room was clean with no foul odors. The resturant within the hotel served good food fast and was more than enough for any meal. Given the chance I will stay there again.

Okay on a budget

Okay location, close to Robinson Mall the local shopping center. A bit old and rough but generally clean. Staff was relatively helpful.
We had a midnight check in from Japan so we didn't want to waste a lot of money on just a short nights stay. So Diplomat was good enough for people who want to save money or stick to a budget. Very close to cheap dining and shopping center and anything else you may need. It is not a romantic place at all, right on the main street to the Fuente, noisy, smelly, and all that of a big city. Don't expect too much but is probably a better deal than staying at some of the so called '4 star hotels' in Cebu city.
Shopping Tip: Very short walk to local Robinson Mall and a 60 peso taxi to the upscale Ayala Mall.

Diplomat Hotel

Location, good value, staff, Currency exchange rates, wireless thoughout hotel
I researched reviews and the area before choosing the Diplomat and got what I was looking for. I may be an American, but I've traveled a lot and lived out of hotels in many places so I try to give a review relative to the area. This hotel is an older building and the rooms aren’t really fancy, but give a good, clean room for the money. The entry and lobby are nice. The Superior rooms are fair sized and the deluxe rooms are spacious. We had an older refrigerator in one room and an older smaller TV in another, but everything worked. The only thing I wish was improved would be the mattress and pillows were not very comfortable, but I recommend in general bringing your own pillow to Asia if you don't like very firm pillows. The restaurant served decent food at a good price and offered room service with a smile. The staff were very helpful and the exchange rates for currency were good. The best part is definitely the location. This Hotel is in a less tourist targeted business district. There are many shops and restaurants at great prices that will make you not want to go to the malls and tourist areas. Several of the stores and banks have armed guards so the area is safe for tourists that may not be as familiar with the Philippines. This area is good to experience a more realistic experience of the Philippines safely and eat and shop at great prices.
Shopping Tip: Plan on walking from shop to shop and the nearby malls for great deals and food.

Great Stay In Cebu

You can't beat the price!. Wonderful staff to incude the security guards. Taxi cabs always at the door waiting. Great Location. Clean Rooms. Room Service. Direct Tv with all the channels from home.
This hotel was great for the money I spent. The room was clean and sheets changed every day. I like the room service and used it. The Staff at the front desk was extremely nice and made me feel welcome. The hotel is located in the center of town, close to the SM Mall and other shopping area. Transportation to and from hotel is cheap. Besides the taxi, I even used the jeeps. I plan to visit again in December and will stay longer. This will be my place to stay whenever I visit Cebu.
Hotel Feature Tip: Talk with the secutity guards, they are very friendly and helpul and can provide information on what to do in the city.
