“Beautiful hotel in prime location”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Spent just one night here, but must say it was superb. Booked a superior room that was spacious and had a very comfortable bed. Location on Strandvagen, so walking distance to Gamla Stan, Sodermalm and the Vasa Museum. Used cabs only for arrival and departure.

Had a light lunch at hotel's outdoor cafe, with great people-watching and water views. Continental breakfast included in rate and it was good (for what it was). Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful.

Perfect location, excellent breakfast. Reserve a room overlooking the water. Views were outstanding. A very helpful staff. We strongly recommend. Close to everything, buses, boats, old town, great restaurants nearby as well. Old elevator adds to the charm of this classic hotel.

We stayed for three nights, and were altogether happy. The hotel is wonderfully located. The service is pleasant and professional. Diplomat is an institution in Stockholm, but as always age passes its bill. Only one elevator, almost impossible to get in - we went up and down with heavy cases (no help to carry our luggage was offered). The room was subject to heavy street noise (state-of-the-art window isolation would easily take care of this problem). Altogether, this could become (again) a top hotel, but it needs a serious (and expensive) renovation.

A very comfortable hotel located in a great area to walk around in Stockholm. To be honest, we walked around all the city center and its museum, we just needed transport to visit Drottningholm.
We were in a room with a view, and what a view! Worse the money, so ask for it! The suite was very comfortable, the mattress was good and the linens.
We had breakfast there and was very good. Loved the breads and cheese they had. WE also had dinner there once day and was very good, although no so cheap.
Staff was very attentive and polite. They were pleased to keep our luggages on the locker.
I recommend and would be there again without doubt.

The hotel is situated on the waterfront, just across from Gamla Stan and opposite the ferry wharves (for day tours of the archipelago). We were able to walk to a lot of attractions (within 20 mins) such as the old town and vasa museum.
The hotel itself is very well maintained with a welcoming atmosphere - it did not have the corporate feel typically found in other four or five star hotels. We stayed in a queen room on the fifth floor, the room was small but not cramped and the high ceilings gave it a more spacious feel.
Overall it was a lovely stay and I would stay at the hotel again.

We booked two rooms at the Diplomate as no family size rooms were available at time of booking. The rooms were very small for this caliber of hotel and the bathroom minuscule. Both rooms had balconies, which made somewhat up for the lack of aircon. Only on old elevator, which could not fit four people with luggage.

Location is very convenient for exploring Stockholm, but for the price we paid for the rooms I am sure we could have found something of a better quality...

Room Tip: Get a room facing the courtyard with a balcony, you will need it in the summer as there is no aircon

Hi MPejter!

Thanks for your feedback. Isn't it great that we get to experience one of the most beautiful (and hottest) summers in Stockholm ever? At the hotel, we are working on installing AC into all our rooms, but haven't quite finished the project yet, so there are still a few rooms left without. I'm sorry we couldn't provide you with an air conditioned room this time, and hope we will have the opportunity to make it up to you on your next visit to Stockholm.

Again, thank you for your review and have an amazing summer!

Kind Regards,
Hotel Diplomat & crew
