“quality traditional hotel”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Stayed for a one night, so didn't see much of the rest of the facilities. But a nice, classy and traditional hotel. Much enjoyed the breakfast. Room was clean and large, with good facilities. Thoroughly recommended!

It's in a highly coveted area of Stockholm and certainly a great starting point for tourists. Easy walk (caveat that we walk quite a bit though) to Gamla Stan and the major shopping areas. It comes with a price though - restaurants in the area are all pretty expensive.

The room itself was nice though you can tell it's getting old. Had a small balcony that overlooks the courtyard and you can see a view of the water when standing outside on the balcony. The stand below the TV (also served as the cover to the heater) was certainly in need of repair - it's as if someone kicked it in.

The room was small but cozy. Because the bed was nice and big, it took up most of the room and have very little room to move around. The bathroom even tinier. I am petite and could barely maneuver inside the shower. That said, I was ok with it as the bed was comfortable which is what matters most.

The service was great! When I arrived, it turns out that American Express travel cancelled one of the reservations - unfortunately, it was for the arrival dates (booked two separately due to price difference - not sure why booking 5 straight days increased the nightly rate but when cut into two separate reservations, got lower rates), but the receptionist was so awesome.

The gym was tiny but does its work.

The T-Bar was ok. I think they are used to more high brow diners because of the location but I can certainly feel them looking at me in my informal clothing as I walked in (probably easy to gather that I was staying there) - you can see them looking at me up and down. Unless you're super tired (like I was), it's best to go to other restaurants nearby.

Overall, totally happy with the hotel. Perfect base to exploring the city.

We stayed here for one night & wished we could stay longer. The view from our room (404) was amazing, the windows were just beautiful. The room itself was large & lovely! The negatives: a couple of stains were found on the floor & a tile in the bathroom had fallen out, also the mirror on the wall shook every time our neighbours slammed their doors, with a little bit more attention to detail this room could be absolutely spot on. The staff were all very friendly & had the prices in the cocktail bar been cheaper we would have sat in there all evening, but unfortunately we're not made of money had could only stay for a couple - but the mojito was excellent!!
All in all an excellent stay - this hotel really has everything & we would definitely stop here again if we return to Stockholm.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Diplomat. More than our stay at the Grand Hotel! Cozy room, nice atmosphere and perfect location. The restaurant though was terrible. I had to send my food back twice so I recommend you to dine somewhere else. The breakfast was great, you could even make your own waffles!

I went on a business trip so really didn't think that the hotel had any function except as a place to sleep - but from the moment I arrived to a warm efficient and charming welcome I knew I was staying somewhere special. My room was small but had every facility one could want and was very comfortable - the added bonus of a tiny balcony to a quiet courtyard and a side view of the waterside. The food (formal dinner and snack lunches) was well prepared, delicious and fresh as can be. ALL staff were the height of service excellence. The hotels location is ideally suited to visiting Stockholm. All in all a five star stay.

We stayed for one night in a junior suite. Really beautiful and nicely located in the central of Stockholm. Although living so close to the city it's really nice and quiet.
We also recommend the spa area.
I truly recommend this nice hotel,, friendly personell and nice breakfast.

Take the opportunity to visit.
