Excellent choice for a stay in Stockholm.Genuine 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. The room was very clean and had a window with some view. The hotel has great shampoo and cream rinse. Nice modern bathroom. One complaint, the bar out front is expensive, 2 drinks […] approximately $50. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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
I have stayed there many times and it is always a good hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the room was dark, no view, could not see the sky, people could walk into the room from the back yard if they wanted to, was scared, could not open the windows, think that room should be make into a storage room - not for people.Genuine 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

"Great style and nice experience"
Well situated, very famous area, friendly staff. Great style with nice chill out places. Tasty breakfast buffet. Recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Great Place"
This hotel has really lovely, nicely-sized rooms with tall ceilings (at least my room), nice attentive staff, beautiful common areas, and its right across the street from the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Hotel Diplomat in Stockholm"
This is a lovely hotel in a great location, right on the water and very central to all the sights. One can walk to the Vasa Museum. The breakfast is not included, and a bit pricey--but then Stockholm is pricey! but worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't have enough wonderful things to say about our stay at The Diplomat in Stockholm. First of all the location--our room had a wonderful view of the city and the harbor. We could walk everywhere easily and the hotel thought of every detail. The breakfast buffet was simply to die for and we would definitely stay here again and we will recommend it […] to our friends. The restaurant was excellent as were the wonderful restaurants in the neighborhood. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent family room & great location"
We stayed at this hotel for two nights during a family holiday (2 adults + 2 kids , 7 & 10) in July 2011. Our hotel room was very spacious, comfortable and bright, and well-appointed. The hotel is well-located for all the main attractions in Stockholm, including Vasa Museum, Skansen . I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I LOVED THIS HOTEL. THE STAFF WAS GREAT,LOCATION GREAT. THE BUFFET BREAKFAST WAS FIT FOR A KING. I WOULD DIFFENTLY STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Diplomat, Stockholm, Sweden"
Conveniently located along the fiord. Courteous, helpful staff from the front desk to the room maids. Dining facilities and bar service were excellent. The sidewalk cafe was very pleasant and relaxing An excellent choice; we look forward to our returnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Diplomat Great Choice"
Wonderful location and a nice personal European hotel. My only complaint was that there was no A/C but apparently that is the case with all Stockholm hotels. I would strongly recommend this hotel over a big chain, more charming loction and ambience. Our room was small but comfortable with a small balcony and side view of the water, loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location if you have a toddler - a beautiful 10 minute walk along the water to Junibacken and the Wasa museum. Diplomat staff could not have been more attentive if they tried. Amazing service. Fun brasserie donwstairs with beautiful locals and business, too, daytime. Lovely birdcage elevator from 100 yrs ago - updated to modern standards - with […] plasic key insert to access floors. The way this hotel has managed to intergrate modern conveniences is stunning and brilliant. Its a very old, beautiful building with high ceilings and crown moldings, etc. We loved every minute of it. The only (possible) downside is that they don't have A/C in the rooms. Heat they have - for obvious reasons. A/C they do not have - also for obvious reasons :) Can highly recommend this 4 1/2 star, "boutiqie" hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Diplomat in Stockholm - Great Neighborhood"
The Diplomat is a charming hotel in a very nice part of Stockholm. It's just a few blocks from great high-end shopping and nice restaurants. The staff was helpful and overall, our stay was great. The only negative was that our room was a little cramped and the carpet was kind of worn. Also, the hotel elevator is tiny and not very convenient. I would […] definitely recommend this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Diplomat is exquisite and superbly located! The staff is extremely attentive and delightful. We highly recommend staying here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
ok the good news first..great view and location right on water, friendly staff, free wifi, clean rooms, good restaurant...bad news.ROOMS NOT AIR CONDITIONED so in summer think twice,,rooms are very small, bed is smaller if you are over 6'1" good luck make sure you book double roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Diplomat - best location...but...."
We enjoyed staying at the Diplomat. The only negative thing(s) we have to comment on is the front staff and the very hight price we payed for a room without breakfast and a terrible view. On the website it said we would have a view of the water - but instead we faced a wall. We celebrated our anniversary and I wanted it to be special as my husband loves […] the water and boats. When we mentioned this to the reception they did not make an effort and did not seem to bother. As a matter of fact the front desk/reception staff is the worst staff in a hotel we have ever encountered. It is very sad that the hotel does not choose its front staff more carefully as it is the "face" of the hotel. On a lighter note - the breakfast (which we paid 195skr = $30 pp) was fantastic!!!! Dennis one of the breakfast hosts was the friendliest and most professional person in the whole hotel and really went out of his way to make us feel welcomed. Even though the bed and the hotel was very comfortable and at a fantastic location - we would probably try to find another hotel next time we visit Stockholm. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love the Hotel Diplomat except for......."
My husband and I have now stayed twice at the Diplomat. We will be making regular trips to Stockholm due to our son's relocating there. The only drawback here (and this happened both times) is that we booked a Double Diplomat room and were given a very small room that looked out on the space between buildings where the equipment is stored. Fortunately, […] a trip to the front desk was all that was necessary to fix this. I don't know if there's a secret handshake needed to get the room we request without the extra step. We'll have to think long and hard about accommodations next time. If it happened a third time I'd be kicking myself all the way back to New York. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant stay"
The hotel was fine, although people with reduced mobility should be aware of the possibility of steps (!) within a room. I choose the hotel based on the location of a meeting venue for a whole week. While there are many restaurants in the area, I would have preferred an area with simpler, less expensive eating options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great restaurant and bar. Tiny room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classy hotel in prime location"
A comfortable hotel right in the centre of the city; helpful and well-trained staff; restaurant great for dinner and breakfast; pricey - but then so is everything in Stockholm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed here many times- the rooms are beautifully fresh and welcoming. On this visit I was a little disappointed with the tiny size of the bathroom in this particular room which had hardly any room to stand between the sink and toilet. Otherwise a classy but comfortable hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for Money in Stockholm"
I have stayed at Diplomat many times since the late '80's and it never dispappoints you. Comfort, professional staff, good rooms and location. Somewhat crowded and lack of lobby facilities but the T bar is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"WOnderful hotel in great location."
The Hotel is located in a fantastic location. Everything is nearby! Our only mistake was to have a car: it is impossible to find street parking, many roads are one way and the Hotel only offer a valet parking which is quite expensive. Breakfast was good even if it could be better for a hotel of this level. Rooms was nice and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Superb sea view / worth the extra money"
Prestigious location, very close to main museums, this hotel is perfect for an extended weekend break.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stylish, character hotel, centrally located."
We chose the hotel based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The staff was friendly, helpful and spoke English. The hotel is set amongst stylish buildings fronting the water. Whilst the rooms are small, they are comfortable and clean. There are plenty of places to eat in the area and the hotel is close to the hop on hop off boat stop. Other […] Stockholm attractions are within walking distance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"All round a good hotel"

"Our Trip to Stockholm"
The hotel was simply first class. On our arrival there was a lovely feeling to the Hotel. The staff at reception met you with a lovely warm smile and there English was perfect. Music played in the background which again added to the overall experience of the hotel. The service was excellent, and the food was top notch. Our stay there was a real treat […] and we would go back there in the morning. The hotel is ideally located for all the things to see in and around Stockholm. All in all our stay was first class and we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone whether you want to do all the sites or just relax in a lovely hotel, it answers to both.

"Good location wonderful view"
Wonderful view of the waterfront from the bay windows. Worth paying extra for a room with a view. Bed very comfortable. The restaurant was popular with good quality food but menu not extensive and not cheap (like most resturants in Stockholm). Charming art deco features, including the lift. As there is only one lift had to wait occasionally to go up […] and down, but very efficient lift and not a problem - quite fun in fact. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Superb stay in Stockholm"
We booked the Diplomat because of its great location, easy to walk to everywhere and right on the water. We booked a room with a water view and got one just like the ones you see in the marketing, three tall panes in a bay window looking in all directions over the bright red geraniums in the window boxes across the water. The most fantastic view of […] boats, buildings, Islands and Grona Lund in the distance. The room decor was light and easy in linen colours with a lovely big round mirror. The wardrobes and bathroom were kind of separate from the bed area up steps which I liked. The Dux bed was extremely comfortable. We couldn't hear any noise from other guests. Being up four flights of stairs we were glad of the lift. The breakfast was great with everything you can think of to choose from and the option of sitting outside in the T Bar to eat it in the sunshine with a view. This was our first visit to Stockholm and the Diplomat was lovely. No hassle just enjoyable. I would love to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A most wonderful Stockholm hotel"
I greatly enjoyed my 3 night stay at the Hotel Diplomat in a 6th floor king-bed room overlooking the water. Although the hotel is on a fairly busy street, it was not too noisy to get a good night's sleep. The hotel's open elevator is small (for ~4-5 people), but has an old-world charm to it. The hotel is in a great location, right by the hop-on hop-off […] boats that take you to many interesting tourist locations - can also take special tour boats to locations outside of the city. There is a tram in front of the hotel which takes you to Djurgarden, a wonderful park for walking and enjoying nature as well as where there are some tourist sites. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the hotel meals are very good, but pricey. Although cafes are within walking distance, they are not close to the hotel. All-in-all, this is a wonderful hotel and I would highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The Hotel Diplomat is very well run and caters well for visitors and locals alike, everything was well done and the staff were excellent wishing to help at every moment.
