    So central.pretty good value for money,even tho the rooms are a tad tired,nevertheless comfy.

    The fridge hummed all nite,untill I turned it off at nites..

    Close proximity to interesting places in Alice Springs

    Unfortunately the bedding ( I suppose it was the quilt and the pillows) smelt very strongly smoke. I was perturbed that smoke from clothing of past guests was still very evident. Try laundering the quilts and turfing out the pillows. My sinuses were blocked from the odor. Otherwise everything else fine.

    Room was very cold, old and run down, there was no hot water on several occasions, my door wouldn't open and there were no blankets

  • Single

    Its very close to the city. Stuff was friendly.

    The rooms have to be refresh and new furniture.

    Excellent value- budget prices for a quite comfortable room in an excellent location. Would recommend to family and friends.

    Air conditioner leaking right outside the room

    Convenient location and reasonably priced. Hotel I wanted to stay at was booked.

    Small, cramped room with two small twin beds and no hair dryer.

    Pleasant helpful staff, adequate clean facilities

    Close to town a benefit, but could be noisy

  • Couple

    The air con didn't work, so there was no heating, it was absolutely freezing, I hardly slept at all. Would not recommend!

    The closeness to everything in the city.is excellent

    I didnt like the fact that I was put in a room directly above the .bar and had to listen to loud mouthed foul speaking people till 2am in the morning..Also the milk in the fridge was already opened before my arrival and it was not replaced on the second day.

    The location right in the centre of Alice Springs was the best feature. Though it is in the middle of town the room was spacious and very quiet. The staff were welcoming and helped me with a tour connection I had to make. I would stay there again for sure .

    No it was absolutely fine for the price

  • Single

    I loved how friendly the staff were! They were very helpful and nothing was too much of a problem when I needed help. I had an awesome time staying there and would definately book my accommodation at the Diplomat again.

    The location was good and within walking distance to the town and all it offers. The exterior of the hotel looks more impressive than the interior actually is.

    There was a double bed and a single and we used both as the double was so old we would have spent the 2 night we spent there in the middle it was so soft! We had booked a trip to Uluru and were picked up at 6am and when we were dropped off at midnight and returned to our room the beds had not been made or the room cleaned.

    Location - cbd Excellent 150meters from airport bus stop. 2 blocks from Information centre, central local bus terminal, tourist points of interest park beach area. Same distance other way to Mal shopping, McDonalds (breakfast). Mitchell St has numerous places to eat and drink at reasonable prices and quality of the food was good.Diplomat was clean, confortable and you weren't paying to take out shares in the organisation. For holiday purposes 3 star status.

    Darwin is hot and humid. No shampoo or conditoner supplied in bathroom. These items takek up unnessary space and wieght in the luggage and at 3-4 star status I expect these to be supplied. They are charging enough to cover these items.

  • Single

    It's very centralised with regard to shopping etc. The staff were very helpful & the room was more than adequate. The restaurant was very nice and the food was excellent.

  • Single

    It's central location is the Diplomat's winning feature. It's not flashy, but offers just enough creature comforts to make any stay at Alice Springs a comfortable one.
