    Top notch hotel, well placed in city.This was a 24 hour stay whilst passing through Bahrain. The hotel reception staff were efficient, pleasant and informative. When it came time to leave, there were no taxis around, so one of the staff drove me to the airport for the normal taxi fare. The room was spacious, well appointed, maintained and cleaned. A fruit bowl would have been a nice touch for a non-Muslim during Ramadan. I had a meal from the wide room service menu, and this was well prepared and presented. No complaints here. The breakfast buffet was good, with plenty of choice and good service. My only wish was for some real bacon after being without for over a year. Value for money? I was there during Ramadan, when the place is very quiet, with some of the hotel facilities unavailable, and offering significant discounts on the regular price. So yes, good value.

    Great pool and pub

    The Diplomat is a very nice hotel. The service is excellent and the amenities are very nice. Location doesn't cater to walkable destinations but that's really the only downside I see to this place. The pool is beautiful. There is also a spa available that looks very nice although I didn't do anything other than use the sauna. And there's a little irish pub attached to the hotel that has about 8 beers on tap.

    A good hotel in a nice part of town”

    Good customer service and nice women's only gym

    I had a very pleasant stay at the Diplomat. As it name suggests, it is in the diplomatic quarter of Bahrain - a safe area in the North East of the state. The clientel is mainly professional / business-type, and the calabre of the hotel suits it (pool, gym, nice restaurants, ladies' only spa area etc etc). The customer service was also really good which made the stay very pleasant. Not the cheapest hotel by any stretch, but a good option, in a nice area with good ammenities.
