Hotel Diplomat surely did dissapoint me with its small congested rooms, poor old airconditionng systems and rooms where you wont get any mobile network coverage . You have to come downstairs to the lobby to make or receive calls. I understand its a budget hotel but still expected better service from it. Noticed even the staffs & people sitted in...
