"Perfect Location with amazing views"
We stayed at the Diplomat for 1 week while preparing for our daughters wedding in Stockholm. The restaurant, bar and staff we're all excellent. We had many deliveries to our rooms (3) prior to the wedding and the staff didn't seem to mind, they actually were very excited for us and very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel and Location"
The location of the hotel is superb! It is close to bus stops, trolley stops, canal tours, shopping, restaurants, Old town and lots of other fun places. The room was clean and the food was good even though it wasn't free. The service was good but there were not any signs about computer use and as a result one guest stayed on the computer for a long […] time while we were trying to print our boarding passes. We were not the only ones affected by this. But other than that our stay was great and I would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quality hotel and location"
Location is great, terrific hotel, we would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is my new favorite hotel in Stockholm. The staff was genuinely friendly, attentive, helpful and fun. The room was typical European size, but the bed was uber comfortable and the bathroom modern and spotless. The location is perfect for a summer visit with most Stockholm attractions in easy walking distance. Late sleepers may not like the tooting […] of steam whistles from the ferries, but we loved it. Great place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming, Great location"
We loved our stay at the Diplomat. Only complaint was the maintenance in the spa/jacuzzi area... jacuzzi wouldn't heat up. Great, modern neighborhood walking distance from Vasa Museum/Skansen and Gamla StanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff is very helpful. They helped us with directions, suggestions and maps. They were very accomodating - we needed to add an extra person and we had no problems and we still got a great room. The hotel was clean, an old hotel that was elegant. Our only "complaint" was the warmth of the room. Unless we opened the windows, it got warm and a little […] stuffy. Loved the shower! The beds were very comfortable and we had the breakfast buffet and lunch in the hotel and both were delicisous! Would definitely return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous hotel/perfect location"
Gorgeous hotel rooms with the most comfortable beds with luxurious linens and excellent bath products. Loved this hotel and would recommend it without a doubt. Go for the rooms with a view--worth the little extra they charge. Perfect location also and nice, helpful staff. Best hotel of our trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean, quaint and friendly"
Terrific location, extremely helpful staff, good bar. Our room had a great balcony and I loved the decor. I'd definitely stay again if in Stockholm. Great deal on cost as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed here 3 times and every time I've been really happy. Nice rooms, great, nice staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for couples."
Very nice hotel, great location, but ask for the city view room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Little Treasure in Stockholm"
A small, lovely hotel with some of the most attentive, helpful and genuinely nice staff I've experienced in many years of traveling. The beautiful 19th century building is a thoughtful combination of new renovations with enough Belle Epoque charm to make it truly distinctive. But once again, it's the staff that deserves ten gold stars.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fabulous location. Elegant without being garish. You get a real sense of the past, without giving up any state-of-the-art amenities. Very gracious staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent value and location"
Nice hotel in a great location ... but rooms were tight and bathroom was a bit dated ...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
Beautiful building, nice tall ceilings in the room, well maintained, great shampoo/soaps. The only downside I can really think of is that the room service menu is tasty but too limited.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staying in the Hotel Diplomat made our trip to Stockholm so much more fantastic. I can't imagine staying in a better part of town. It was easy walking to Gamla Stan, Djurgarden, & of course the Ostermalm & Norrmalm section. We paid extra for a waterfront room, as recommended in many reviews. It was worth it. Such amazing views. Visit the Ostermalms […] Saluhall, a few blocks back, a food/cafe market. A nice change from visiting restaurants & easier on your wallet. The canal boats are a few hundred yards away. The hotel was very convenient to most of the sights & a very safe area. The hotel itself was beautiful. The elevator was small but so quaint. The only drawback was breakfast is not included and it very expensive so we didn't eat there but it was not a problem. Loved the hotel and the location can't be beat.

"Refreshing, pleasant experience"
I stayed at Hotel Diplomat for five days and I must admit, although I have stayed in many hotels, none of them have been as accomidating as this. Upon my arrival, I found the concierge very friendly and obliging and the room very comfortable and clean. The included breakfast was very nice, however the vegetarian options were a bit slim, limiting me […] mostly to croissants and fruit, which were delicious. The bathroom, which was always cleaned thoroughly, included L'Occtaine bath products which I thought was very luxurious. In addition, there was a welcome bag that also housed hand lotion, shoe polish, tissues, etc. The minibar in the hotel is a bit expensive, however, right down the street from the hotel is a Seven Eleven; I recommend that you just buy your Soda and crisps there. Obviously, the location is divine. Being on the Strandvägen provides reasonably quick access to Old Town, the Nationalmuseum, among other things. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"First time to Stockholm"
Good location, a great way to see Stockholm for the first time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Website Pictures Are A Bit Deceptive"
Although we booked this hotel months in advance of our trip, and specifically asked for a smoking room, when we arrived we were told that the hotel was non-smoking. Couldn't they have let us know beforehand? The room we had was rather shabby and rundown compared to the pictures on the hotel's website. It was kept clean, however, despite being so tiny. […] We had originally wanted a room on the front of the hotel with a view of the water. We wound up getting a room with a view of what they called the courtyard. That was a stretch! Anyway, the inside room was much quieter as traffic noise started very early. After having been up for almost 24 hours a quiet room was most welcome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"fantastic location, excellent staff"
We had a great stay at the Diplomat on our long weekend in Stockholm. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful (so in everyone in Stockholm)! The room was very clean, but could use to be updated a little, there were rusty stains on the carpet and the shower sprayed out all over the floor making it a tiny inconvenient to have to mop up with the […] towels provided. Otherwise, there were no issues at all. The location was centrally located for seeing the whole city without issue. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Can't get better"
The ratings say it all: very central, lovely facility, terrific service. I will make it a point to revisit Stockholm just for the opportunity to stay at the Diplomat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The cost of the breakfast and bar drinks were high, however all the local restaurants seemed to be expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was smaller than expected, but very clean & efficient. Location was excellent - within walking distance to almost everything we were interested in seeing and doing. The hotel personnel were extremely friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Visiting Family in Stockholm for a week.. This hotel & location worked perfect for my stay. Staff was friendly & helpful. I stayed in a upgraded view room so it was fairly roomy by european standards & the bathroom looked recently remodeled .. Very nice. Didn't dine at the hotel so not sure on the cuisine but always looked fairly busy, hotel bar was […] nice & the service was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wonderful Time - Minor issues to be aware of."
There was no air conditioning. We were supplied with a small desk fan for a very large high ceiling room which opened up to a courtyard that faced apartments. Although pleasant view, not when there is no air-conditioning and on full view to the world even in the bathroom. Found a large fan in the hall the last night, which made sleeping a little easier. […] Why everyone is not provided with this size? Elevator was a wonderful old style. However, people would leave the door open and we climbed the stairs more often than not. Good excercise, but with luggage not so good. We had to buy an adapter. Left ours in Paris. I did not complain and smiled through all these issues. It is kind of the charm. Just mentioning it in case one may have medical issues. I will definitely come back to Stokholm. It is a magical city and the people are just wonderful. I may just stay at a different hotel in the same vacinity. Location gets 5 Stars! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My teenage daughters and I are on a 5 week European vacation. We flew to Sweden from Karlsruhe, Germany after being in Schwaebisch Gmuend for the 850th Stauferfest (bday celebration) and fell in love with Stockholm. This gorgeous hotel is perfectly located in the center of town overlooking the water. Staff is incredibly helpful and the rooms are immaculate. […] We flew to Dublin then Berlin and are currrently in Amsterdam. Stockholm and The Diplomat Hotel have been our favorite so far. Be sure to enjoy a Smorgasboard at The Grand Hotel. We will definitely return to Stockholm and The Diplomat! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location and a Classy Hotel"
I highly recommend if you are looking for a nice hotel in a great location. We booked on Hotels.com and got a great rate. I would stay there again and would highly recommend.

Outstanding. Great staff, great location and very good food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good, but skimpy on the towels - only one bath and one hand towel provided, not what I would expect for the star rating and price range of the hotel. Also, staff did not tell me at check in about lights requiring a key in the door to work. Needed to ask. Others in our party who I booked another room for thought the price/value was lacking. The hotel […] was charming in a good location, but little things do matter too for comfort and service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A fancy hotel with pros and cons"
* The pros: The hotel is fancy, the rooms are very nice, the bath products wonderful. The hotel is well located with easy access to ferry docks, Djurgarden island, and (with a 15 minute walk) Gamla Stan. * The cons: The front desk staff was very nice, but relatively uninformed in regards to tourist/city information, even giving us inaccurate information […] several times. There are no blackout curtains on the room windows, so those who cannot sleep when there is daylight at 3:30am are in trouble. The surrounding neighborhood was very posh and, therefore, incredibly expensive in an already expensive city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, great location"
The perfect place to stay in Stockholm. Super convenient location, clean and comfortable rooms, lots of amenities....and only a short walk to Riddarbageriet (Riddargatan 15)--the best bakery in Stockholm and a great place for morning coffee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hot and Pricey"
The room was a nice size with a comfortable bed. However, with no air conditioning it was quite warm in the room (and we were only on the first floor, and it was relatively cool overnight...around 10C). Because of the warmth in the room, we slept with the window open, which made the room quite noisy. Otherwise the room was nice, it's just that for the […] price paid, I expected an air conditioned, quiet room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great price for Stockholm"
This hotel was great. Rooms were small, but in a very functional way so it wasn't a problem for us at all. The location was excellent, there is a 7-11 just down the street for anything you need from a convenience store. Reception was great, the place seemed to be a hotspot for lunch and drinks out on the patio all the time. Would stay again for sur […] e. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"water view rooms are terrific"
Cannot say enough about water view room (streets ahead of courtyard room which i also stayed in). Water view was dreamy-perhaps most beautiful view in all of Stockholm. Room has Juliet balcony, high ceiling/enormous windows, separate bath & WC, very comfy bed, & very fast WiFi. Art Nouveau architecture and high craft finish throughout hotel are just […] lovely. Nevertheless, the hotel feels contemporary (not like the dowager hotels of the era) and feels in the current with nightlife, restaurant, bar, etc without feeling "hip hotel"--(so fin de millennium). Room service menu good. Restaurant is one of the better ones in Stockholm (Good pricing, Great flavor, beautiful people, and right downstairs). Actually my favorite dining in Stockholm. Service in hotel was very good. Friendly but not treacly, Deferential without being unctuous. One of my best hotel experiences. Would not hesitate going back. Considering it's Stockholm, a great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You can't go wrong here"
This was a treat. The hotel is in an ideal location. It was the cleanest, most friendly and enjoyable stay during our busy week in Sweden. Though we enjoyed friendly treatment in all Swedish hotels the staff at the Diplomat was extraordinary. Though rated at 4.5 stars, I believe it should be 5 star. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety of […] choices and fresh squeezed OJ. Would not hesitate to stay here again and would gladly recommend it to all of my friends.

"Best spot in town!"
Placed on the sunny side of the habour front a short walk from shopping and restaurants the hotel's location is one of the best in town. The hotel is old, but very charming. Rooms could do with a bit of an update, but are in perfect working order and clean. Good food and a nice atmosphere in both the bar and the restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, clean and comfortable but nothing special"
Smallish rooms but very clean and quite modern and comfortable. An ok hotel but maybe I missed something as apart from a lovely staircase and a nice restaurant I am so sure what the fuss is about. Worth staying there if the rate is competitive but I would seek it out especially as there are nicer hotels in Stockholm for less - melody, skeppsholmen, […] stureplan etc Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLASSY, yet veryCOSY IN FANTASTIC LOCATION !"
I always stay at Diplomat when I am in Stockholm,whether I come with my sister or husband. The location is fabulous and the hotel itself offers not only luxury, beauty and comfort, but incredibly welcoming and friendly staff. You feel really well looked after- it is like being in someone's home, rather than a 'busy' and impersonal hotel. All the staff […] I encountered were extremely helpful, but one person stood out, the chef Dennis Pilbladh. I suffer from diabetes and various allergies and he really went out of his way to help, even going out himself to shop for my needs. He is also a very nice person indeed! As you can tell I HIGHLY recommend Holel DIPLOMAT and its staff! (Last time I stayed in room 621, which was very nice with a lovely sea view) Very much looking forward to my next stay.
