The best hotel accommodation we ever had in Cebu City.
Decent facility and great staff.”
The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are always friendly, always cheerful and always helpful. As for the rooms, they are very comparable to other hotels in that price range. They have all of the basics but don't expect anything fancy. One amenity they offer that most others don't is a security box in the room. As for the location, just get onto Google maps and judge for yourself before booking. I like it but others might not. It's all a matter of preference.
Pros: 1. They have a very accomodating ang corteous staff. 2. The location is quite ok since its near on some tourist spots 3. You get the value for your money. Cons: 1. There were bed bugs in our bed. 2. The room is quite darl esp. they used yellow bulbs instead of led fluorescent bulbs. 3. Quite far from the airport 4. Food at the Lobby Cafe quite pricey and not that appetizing (taste not that good). 5. Don't even have a bidet shower if you pee or poop.
The accommodation was very nice, staff very friendly
The room i had was very clean quiet and had a refrigerator they sometimes change the password for the wifi 2 times a day each time you have to go to the front desk and sign in to get a new password the ladies behind the front counter can speak some english but understand very little. They have a posted rate for a room in the lobby that they wont honor. Yes I would stay here again.
Good location and decent accomodation.”
This hotel is located in a central location near restaurants, malls, bars, transportation. I highly recommend this to anyone heading to Cebu City. They have an on location restaurant and everything you need is within walking distance from it. Taxis are readily available 24 hours a day.
We've stayed here several times before and enjoy it. We only left because we were looking for a longer stay at a more affordable price. We love the location. The shower heater wasn't working though and we got no service when asking for a repair. The fridge was a plus. The air conditioning worked great. We enjoyed our stay there and would gladly stay again!
I enjoyed my stay here and to be honest was pleasantly surprised. The hotel went way past my expectations from the price point. I found the hotel to be a bit dated but in excellent condition. The room was a large size with a good size bathroom. The bed was large and very comfortable. Also the wifi and cable made the stay comfortable. Just a short distance from mango square this place is a real bargain.
Great location First room booked was unreovated and construction during day so we asked staff if upgraded room was available they were happy to upgrade us for a small fee. Second room renovated and very very nice. Very spacious too. Staff were always friendly and very helpful. Would definately stay there again.!!
Well Located 3 Star hotel with Friendly Staff”
Good staying, in fact most of the times I stay at the Diplomat. The food is bad and the Wi-Fi is slow and lousy, but the staff is the best in the Philippines, friendly, attentive, especially manager Mei, front desk Joan as well as bell men Balo and Corro who do their best to provide good service in a professional manner. Besides the food, one think I do not like is that for long staying guests, the Diplomat Hotel does not open credit card voucher so that hotel bill could be settled upon check out. All hotels in the world settle bills upon check out. With the Diplomat hotel, you have to settle your bill upon check in. That's a bit of an inconvenience, especially if you order room service, etc. Also, if you want to call a mobile in the philippines, that is not allowed. Only calls to a landline can be effected. Weird, right? But that's how it it is at the Diplomat. Another drawback is the ULTRA NOISY CORRIDORS each time there is a wedding celebration in the Hotel. I have gone through some of that and believe me, Filipinos can be some of the most noisy people on this planet Other than that, the Diplomat is a nice place. Enjoy your stay.
best choice with price”
I always used to stay in this hotel when i came to cebu city. just 5 min away from manggo square. you can hit night club, live bar and massage shops also. people in the lobby is always kind and nice. specially joan in lobby and jinu who is security guy. i surely can say this is the good hotel with price.
A little scarry at first, but nice hotel”
i was a little worried when i first saw the hotel. the outside looked like something out of the old european eastern block from the early 90's....scarey. once we got into the hotel my opinion quickly changed. the inside is well maintained and the staff was very friendly. check in was a breeze. i showed them my agoda printout and i was in my room laying down. this hotel is very close to malls and shopping areas. there are numerous atms available within a 5 minute walk, but not all machines will take visa. there is a 24 hour coffee shop called bo's that is a 7 minute walk from the hotel.. it is excellent. i did not try any food at the restaurant.
Clean and good service.”
the hotel is located a distance away from the city's activity centers (ie malls, parks, etc.). this is both an advantage and a disadvantage for travelers. those who want some good night's sleep will appreciate the location of the hotel but for those who want to explore what cebu has to offer, may find the location as a restriction. for me, i prefer to have a good night sleep when i stay in hotels, the amenities at the diplomat were therefore just a fit for what i look for in hotels.
Central location in Cebu. Handy to everything”
a good central location in the main city centre of cebu. good sized, clean, airconditioned rooms with free wi-fi. the meals are excellent value for money. a good selection of meals on the menu. drinks in the restaurant were also exceptional value for money. the rooms were a reasonable size with plenty of hot water. the hotel is quiet and private. the staff were all very friendly. i won't hesitate to stay at the diplomat on my next visit to cebu.
So near of the Mango square”
I stayed in the Diplomat hotel for 3 night. The Hotel crew are so kindly and frankly for me. My room is good bad and comfortable size room. But you can hear the dropping water in midnight from the bathroom. But tomorrow you talk about this problem to the hotel crew. and the Engineer visite your room and make it fix.
Bargin Hotel ”
Considering the price and location, this hotel is one of the best bargains with the Cebu City area. The staff was really friendly and accommodating to most needs. Although, it is obvious that the hotel is aging, it is still a great bargain! I would recommend this hotel to all those travelers looking to get the best bite for their buck.
Nice as always”
this is my regular hotel when i visit cebu. simple but it has everything for comfortable stay, hot shower, refrigerator, free wifi and so on. the only blemish is that its location is not the safest place. i advise you not to walk around at night.
Great location and service with wamrth”
This hotel located in the center of Cebu city, and it's convenient to many locations for shopping, eating and night life. Taxis are always there in front of hotel so never been an issue for transportation. Staff is kind and food for room service was good tastes. Recommended.
Practical and Convenient 3-Star Hotel”
the service in diplomat hotel is good. it could have been great but there was one instance that we requested something for room service when they said they could not at the moment since they are attending to an event. well, this kind of situation should have been anticipated by the management without sacrificing the needs of their hotel guests. diplomat hotel is in the business for 13 years already. we intentionally asked about this for the reason the this may correspond to the number of years the towels they provide have not been replaced. these towels smells clean, but looks really old. if we are that sensitive, my daughter and i will think that with the kind towels they provide is synonymous to how they think about and treat their guests - just ordinary people.
we really can recommend this hotel, it's for sure one of the best deals in cebu. the location is central, restaurants and malls reachable by foot. the rooms are clean and spacious, also the bathrooms. it's quiet at nighttime, there's is an attached restaurant, wifi was working in the room. we'll would go there again anytime.
