Book this hotel at your own risk

I have never given a bad review in my life and i have traveled to many destinations and stayed at numerous hotels/hostels/motels/etc and have always managed to say something good. however, i will give my first bad review. my advice is to not to do business with this hotel.

when i arrived to find that they were full despite the fact i made a booking with this hotel and paid in full months in advance. they proceeded to downgrade me to a three star hotel down the road which had terrible facilities with rude staff. i would have been fine if they were friendly or offered compensation for the situation in some way for the price difference of the facilities but they blatantly stated it as a fact in a very rude and unfriendly manner.

an extremely negative customer experience and as stated before, book this hotel at your own risk.

Very satisfied

We had booked a room with a sea view and were so glad we did. we had a fantastic view as we were on the corner of the 5th floor so were able to look over at the st julians area, plus watch all the boats on the sea, people sunbathing on the rocks, swimming in the sea and promenading. our room was a good size with a table and chairs by the window. it was well equipped with a mini fridge, kettle, tea and coffee and also had a bath and shower over the bath.
we were happy with the breakfast which had something for everyone.
we liked the fact that there was a rooftop pool which although small was never very busy and we always managed to get a sunbed. there is a nice rooftop café/bar with great views and reasonable prices for snacks and drinks.
we also liked the location. the local buses stopped nearby and went to most of the places we were keen to visit, such as valetta, mellieha, the ferry terminal for gozo, mdina and rabat. we also had a choice of places to eat to the right and left of the hotel and if you bought a 7 day bus pass for 12 euros you could hop on a bus to go a little further afield or for those who could not walk far use it to get about.

Diplomat hotel sliema, july 09

Nice hotel, great location overlooking promenade. close to good restaurants in st julian's. we upgraded from a side-facing room to a sea view for 10 euros per night. this was very worthwhile - the side facing rooms were smaller and felt cramped. housekeeping service was good, room was kept clean and tidy. the breakfast was basic but adequate. we didn't eat any other meals in the hotel.

We found the hotel reception staff very unhelpful.
i would rate this hotel as a 3* not 4*. but still good value for money. location about 15 minutes walk from the centre of selima
