                  our stay at diplomat hotel was great. the rooms are spacious, modern and clean. the staff are always available to help and the location was fantastic (just behind india gate and the taj palace hotel). we would definitely stay here again! only problem is that the hotel will only provide wifi for a price. easily fixed by going to starbucks across the road though!

                  Great view out the window, very clean, excellent breakfast provided in a great restaurant space, local news papers delivered to your door every morning.
                  Staff very professional to the point of being a bit cold. They didn't say much.

                  We had a great stay here and found it to be an excellent introduction to Mumbai given its close proximity to all the sites of Colaba. We arrived at the hotel at about 300am straight off an international flight and were happy to see several staff there to meet. We filled out all the paper work in a very sleepy state. The Staff very professional to the point of being a bit cold as they didn't say much. However, given the time of day I can understand this. I would recommend this hotel.

                  Central locatral in south Mumbai; near tourist attractions; good services and staff
                  Fridge needs replacement; More TV channels for international news would be nice.

                  Hotel Diplomat has a central location to many major tourist attractions, especially Taj Mahal Hotel and the Gateway of India. We enjoyed walking to visit Prince of Wales Museum and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. The hotel is a safe and comfortable place to stay. The staff provided good services. Housekeeping team did a good job. We appreciated the morning newspapers and the complimentary breakfast. Although the food did not have that much variety, it was healthy and sufficient. Also, the money changer service here was helpful since we found it rather hard to find. The rate was very good. By staying at Diplomat, you can enjoy shopping and eating at places just a short distance from the hotel.

                  Bit to expensive, even with the Agoda deal, but it's Mumbai... The midnight phone calls to house keeping are very annoying! The phone is so loud I think it is heard in every room in the hall. I don't know why people phone housekeeping in the middle of the night but it happen't several times each night and they keep phoning even when the phone isn't answered (so very loud ringing for a long time). The Starbucks is great and many guest crossed the street in the morning!

                  The location is great, one room was modernised

                  We stayed almost seven days on two occasions in three different rooms at the Diplomat. One room on the third floor at the end of the hall was excellent, another room in the middle was a little run down but o.k. and one room on the second floor was was not good at all. All rooms are clean but some more in need of re-decoration and better maintenance than others. You must look at more than the first room they send you to. The location behind the Taj Hotel is great although the street the rooms look at on is being torn up at the moment (Jan 2014). The free breakfast in another building is terrible and not worth eating. Eat elsewhere nearby at Mondegar or Leopolds and forget about their free/included breakfast. The free wi-fi works, but you have to get a new slip of paper every 24 hours with the passwords and codes for each device which is tedious. Staff are friendly and helpful. Basically, this is a simple hotel in a very good location for a relatively cheap price, considering all Mumbai hotels in this area cost the same or more. But they could easily re-paint and decorate and modernise the bathrooms to make it a much better place to stay.

                  location, room service

                  Came in late at night and they welcomed me in but wanted my passport to check my visas and ask me questions as if i was on the run or something. That was a bit weird. My room was basic but neat enough. The view was nothing great but its in downtown Colaba so that goes with the territory. The hotel is directly behind the Taj Hotel on the waterfront and is about 2 minutes walk from the Gateway of India. And 5 minutes walk from the great shopping and sightseeing on the Colaba Causeway. The staff were great. friendly and helpful. Room service was tasty and fast. Hot water was minimal as it would run out after 5-10 minutes. And there is a switch for hot water in the bathroom which should be labelled for silly foreigners like myself! I spent a day wondering when the hot water was coming on.(I should have asked sooner i guess). the TV reception was not great and channels that were advertised as being available, were not. I only wanted to watch the cricket. And i couldn't make a hot beverage in my room. They had a great restaurant with a free breakfast buffet which was great because it set you up for the rest of the day. Internet cost rupees a day, but after 2 weeks of barely any internet access this was fine. I had no major problems with the Diplomat and i extended my stay twice as i had read good reviews about this hotel and alot of bad reviews about nearby hotels of a similar class. All in all, it was fine for a few days of sight seeing. Would recommend it for the budget conscious

                  A little disappointing”

                  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.

                  OK for Mumbai”

                  relatively clean room, good breakfast

                  Overall, staying Mumbai is either very cheap with full of dissatisfaction or very expensive with too good. So, to find out something in middle is difficult but this hotel offers.

                  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

                  Decent Hotel for a short stay”

                  Location, cleanliness, service

                  We stayed one night at the Diplomat before moving to another hotel which we preferred (and was fully booked that night). the location could not be better - right behind the Taj Hotel. Rooms were of good size, good bathrooms, good AC. They are refurbishing the place so there is a bit of old/new mix going on with the furniture. Has a club/bar downstairs open on Fri and Sat, but goes on only until 1am and we could not even hear it from our room on the 3rd floor. Down side was breakfast was served int he same bar, and the room still smelled awful the next morning. And the breakfast was not good at all - better to go to one of the nice and chap coffee shops on the Colaba Causeway. All in all, a nice place to stay for a short stay, or if you plan on being outside the room a lot.

                  Reasonable sized room, quiet !

                  Well located hotel in Colaba. Good quality even if a little expensive but all hotels in Mumbai are expensive. Breakfast adequate even if restaurant is a bit dark and claustrphobic. Staff very friendly.
