Christine, ca1 night trip
Good 6.0
Tiny, worn-down rooms. Good location and friendly
I got a small, worn-down room under the roof. The bed was hard and the bathroom so worn-out it was impossible to see if it was clean or not. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was great. I'll probably not stay there again though.

Very Good 8.0
Comfortable beds, nice location
I found my room "street Level" to be rather noisy, so they moved me to the 2nd floor, was much better, Bed was comfortable and overall it was a nice place to stay, great location, very helpful staff...
Cynthia, us5 night trip
Fair 4.0
Screams of a lack of pride in ownership
This property is in dire need of updating. Poor drainage - VERY DIRTY - not to mention the security issue that comes with having to leave your room key with the front desk. That’s right - lock everything up in the unattached safe or take it with you because the property requires that you leave your key with them in case of emergency. Strange and disconcerting. Property is in a neighborhood so dining options are further away. The shower is awkward, tiny and leaky. The cost is inexplicably expensive and feels like thievery considering the condition. There are better options and I HIGHLY recommend them above our experience at the Diplomat. Besides the old dirty carpet, out of date plumbing and lack of convenience the place was layered in dust and lazy maintenance.

Very Good 8.0
Great value in SW1!
Very central location. Six minutes walk to Sloane Square tune or red bus into the West End. Tariff very reasonable for Belgravia. Have stayed here several times over the years. A bit quaint (especially the lift) but comfortable and friendly.
