                    Appreciated staying at the Diplomat. Its a superb location in Colaba minutes from the Gateway of India. A whole range of shopping and dining are within walking distance, as are a number of tourist destinations. The rooms are quite good for 3* rating. The staff are good. The lift is really unreliable but I think the hotel is just 3 or 4 levels when neding the stairs

                    The location. Starbucks is right in front of the hotel. And the Taj too. India Gate is a block away At the rear is the shopping street. The room was alright. The sheets were clean. The AC was working. The room was quiet. One of the electrical outlets didn't need an adapter. The mini-ref was rusty and not cold but it didn't really matter. The bathroom was a good size. The light bulb wasn't working but I was just there for a night so I didn't bother having it replaced. The hot water was working. The shower had good pressure. The restaurant next door is owned by the hotel's and its classier than the hotel ;). You also get a 15% discount on food and drinks if you're staying at the hotel. I had the Kheema Mutton and it was very good. The elevator is old school. Doesn't matter though just FYI.

                    Rooms were very clean and comfortable

                    This was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were very clean and modern. The breakfast offering in the adjoining restaurant is quite good. Wifi is not free but for the nominal charge it is quite good value and the speed is good. Only downside was the feeling for having to tip for absolutely everything. I felt I was expected to tip the guy who pushed the button for me on the elevator. I started taking the stairs. Tipping is acceptable for good service but not for very simple tasks.

                    Pros: centrally located, only a couple of minutes walk fromGateway to India. Close proximity to local attractions. Staff helpful and friendly. Free bottled water in room. Great to have a fridge in the room also. Cons: the air conditioning unit was not a powerful as one would hope in such a hit country. The dining room was quite tired and would benefit from redecoration. I would stay at this hotel again due to its location and the value for money.

                    The Diplomat is a very good hotel. Location is excellent, behind the fabulous Taj Mahal Palace. The restaurant is under renovation but there are lots of restaurants nearby. The location is excellent and most sites in the Colaba area are within easy walking distance. Rooms are clean and well equipped including free WiFi. A good breakfast is included. Staff are friendly and professional. I would definitely stay here again!

                    Location, location, location

                    Overpriced for quality... you're paying for location. Bar/club on ground level EXTREMELY loud on a Saturday night; I think that's why I was given a room in the back when I checked in. View of an alley. Mediocre cleanliness. Breakfast buffet in the dark dingy bar/club was of reasonable quality; menu did change a bit and was pretty good the second day. Wifi generally worked okay but they shut it off right at 12noon on my last day, even though I had a late checkout. Bag stowage was in the hallway after checkout, but the lobby boy/bellhop kept an eye on it from what I can tell. Old elevators worked fine. One block from the ocean and across from Starbucks. Overpriced for quality if not room on-sale; remember you're paying for location. Would stay again, though.

                    Good location, nice stuff, clean room

                    I was staying in this hotel to spend day for sightseeing. Room was very basic, just bad, chair, mirror and wardrobe. Width of room little bit bigger than width of bad. Window looking was looking in close yard and wall of next building. But room was clean, good washing room. Stuff was very friendly and location is excellent, just after Taj Mahal Hotel, 1 minute walk from Indian Gates. Can recommend this hotel for people who came to spend all day in excursions and will come back just to have sleep

                    Helpful staff. Good wifi. Good bed.

                    The standard room was very small and dark. No view at all. I complained and they upgraded me to the better room facing the Taj Hotel which I recommend. The furnishings are very basic.. and the shower never did get hot. Not really a 3 star hotel... and over-priced at $70 a night.

                    Great location. Hotel was clean (although lobby was under construction). Staff were friendly and helpful. Room service food and breakfast buffet weren't the greatest. Wifi connection had problems at times too. Had all the amenities, but furniture sort of seemed like it should be in a college dorm room. It was in good condition, just not the fanciest to begin with. Would stay here again.

                    the location, the bed, bag storage for the day.

                    This was my fourth time staying at Diplomat Hotel. This was my least favourite stay. The rooms are consistently clean so that is always the best part. I had booked a room with free wifi but it didn't work. I had to stand out in the hallway to make it work. This was not so convenient. They did offer to give me another room but when I was taken there it smelled too strongly of some artificial air freshner I couldn't stand it so I kept the original room. I think wifi should be like the cable tv in a room, just part of the deal. Also, my room wasn't cleaned while I was there. They told me I should have put the card on my door but I never did that the last three times I had stayed there. The breakfast could also be a bit better. They offer mostly deep fried foods like chicken nuggets and other Indian items which were fried. Eggs can be ordered though so that is good but I would like to see some yogurt.

                    1. Location near sightseeing 2. A bit low cost

                    The hotel service is quite normal. The frontdesk who served me during my check out, the service was very lousy. Totally not give a friendly service. Because of this hotel location located strategy with Gateway of India or else this hotel I will not recommend yr to stay there.

                    The hotel is dated but much cheaper than the Taj across the street, for the budget traveler!!! Don't plan on the breakfast here although the restaurant was good for dinner and drinks. Great location to everything in this side of town, staff was very friendly.
