Very Good location, nice building, comfortable and reasonable price
My stay at Diplomat was perfect for my night out in London.
The bed was very comfortable, I had a nice room at the top of the building, the location was excellent Considering the very reasonable price it was as good I could have expected. Good english breakfast included.
An enjoyable experience.
The position of the hotel suited us perfectly for shopping and a night out.
The room was roomy and comfortable and nicely decorated. Showerroom was more than adequate. Reception was most helpful even to getting the lift when it was left with a gate open. The lift was the only questionable item that really could be improved. It brought back happy memories of my youth.
In needing of refurb but staff friendly, helpful and bed was comfortable.
Breakfast was also good with plenty of choice.
Central Location, Exemplary Service,
Faultless - I had a highly enjoyable stay.
A short stay
The hotel was a little off the beaten track from the city centre,although it was still easy to get to the town centre.The room was adequate,clean and pretty quiet.Whilst there was free wifi in the room,it was very difficult to access emails,etc,as the connection was poor.The breakfast was adequate,and catered to all tastes.Staff pleasant and helpful at all times.Overall it was a pleasant stay for the price,and I would stay there again.
Great value in Belgravia
I was invited to a business event in Belgravia at the last minute and had a look on the offchance that there was some accommodation nearby that wouldn't cost hundreds of pounds.
Not only did The Diplomat end up being the closest but it was fantastic value too, at least a third of the price of anywhere else with decent reviews. As someone who often travels alone for work I always appreciate hotels that have single rooms at a slightly lower cost too.
Yes, if you're looking for newly renovated modern rooms this isn't necessarily the hotel for you, but there's a certain old-school charm to the rooms and they are spotlessly clean. Nice shower too - and slippers. The building itself is stunning, and my room (Room 29) even had a little balcony which was lovely.
In the morning there was the option to have breakfast on their patio/terrace area which was another nice touch. I would have liked maybe a bit more fresh fruit and some yoghurt available but it was still very nice and the croissants are HUGE.
The staff were really helpful, letting me know where the nearest places to eat were and answering any questions that I had. I can't remember if it was for this hotel that there was a review somewhere mentioning that there's no drinking water in the rooms, but anyway there's a water dispenser just outside so it's not an issue. I'd definitely stay here again.
Great Value Hotel in up-market Belgravia
This Hotel is nestled in the centre of Belgravia within touching distance of Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Sloan Square.
For those looking for quiet away from the City Centre but not that far away it is an inconvenience or expense to get there, this is ideal. The Hotel has retained lots of original and quirky features (2 Person Lift and Domed Atrium) but sadly could do with refurbishment as The Room / Bathroom was tired and dated but this did not affect our stay as the room had everything you needed. The windows are not double or secondary glazed therefore there is some road noise to contend with. Breakfast is served in a lovely refurbished basement area which the rest of the Hotel could benefit with a similar makeover. It’s bright and airy. The breakfast was a highlight of the stay with excellent service and good choice of continental and cooked options.
