Reviewed 9 July 2014

Most stylish hotel in Stockholm , fantastic rooms . Breakfast good as well . Have stayed many times over the years. Well priced most of the time too. Only gripe is the speed of service in bar & restaurant as soon as its slightly busy . Staff are lovely but seem overworked . Small mistakes over the bill & booked package , plus not getting wifi details at check in also a little irritating .
However the style , location , comfort and all round feeling means I'll happily stay again in the future

We stayed at Hotel Diplomat for 5 days in January 2014 as part of a Northern Lights trip. The property itself is a beautiful old building, full of character and charm. If you are the kind of traveler who likes traditional over modern, who enjoys a feeling of luxury, this is for you. The public rooms are very late 19c/early 20c, with lots of woodwork, high ceilings, big windows and a wonderful wrought iron elevator with scissoring doors.
There's a charming bar (open only some days, so be sure to catch it when it's open), and a lovely restaurant that serves an afternoon tea that will MORE than carry you over through dinner.
The rooms are not traditional, but not starkly modern, either. We had a lovely room on the third floor, facing the street--the noise didn't bother us at all, and it was worth it to see the sunrise from our gorgeous big bay windows. The bathroom floor was heated--a nice touch in January!
In terms of location, it couldn't be more perfect. You can walk to the Opera House (do NOT miss the meatballs in the café!), the palace or Old Town in 15 minutes. It's just two or three train stops to the Vasa Museum and all the attractions near it. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you like a city scape, ask for a room on the front--the windows are huge and the sunrise is spect...

I highly recommend the Hotel Diplomat besides the excellent location the service was a perfect combination of warmth, efficiency and professionalism.
The room was luxurious. Highlights include a fantastic bed, top tech conveniences and real old fashion room service.

A first trip to Sweeden, and a very pleasant stay in this hotel very well located in the main interesting areas: close to nice bars and restaurants, where you can walk to!
Nice room and great bed! The view on the river is quite pleasant when you wake up, even if sometimes it's a bit noisy!

This was my first visit to Sweden and my friend suggested this hotel.
The city can be busy and the waterfront is active. The rooms were nice and the food was good in the local restaurant. The bacon at breakfast was American style and crispy. The beer was cold at the bar, and Swedish meatballs for lunch were really nice. The bathroom was typical European and worked fine. The coolest part in this hotel is the old style elevator. The outside door swings open on each level of the hotel, however the inside is more of bi-folding door. It works fine and is very interesting. I will surely try to stay here the next time I visit.

This was the start of a trip with 9 people and after reading reviews on Trip Advisor I suggested that we stay at the Hotel Diplomat. Everyone came way singing praises for the Hotel. It is a wonderful little hotel with such charm, it would be hard to match. The hotel staff is beyond compare. Two couples, including myself, showed up with no luggage, and the staff was very helpful in calling to track it down and supplying us with any items we didn't have. The restaurant is top notch, and seems to be very popular. The breakfast buffet was excellent. One of the great things about the hotel is it's location. You can get anywhere from the hotel. Very close to Old Town and the Vasa. I won't think of staying anywhere else.
