"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

One of the best locations Close to the Old City Close to attractionsGenuine Expedia 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.

"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

"Excellent hotel, would definitely go again"
Surprised at the size of the room, and the view over the courtyard. Double aspect, so the other view was over the roof tops.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old world charm in perfect location"
Diplomat has great charm. The quality of every part of the experience was outstanding and especially great food. This is not a chain hotel. It is family run and it shows.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice comfortable hotel"
Excellent location, close to the waterfront, bars and cafes. Two Nearby t-bana stations made getting around Stockholm easy and cheap. Comfortable room.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife and/or I have stayed at The Diplomat several times over the past few years, but this was probably our last visit. During earlier visits we have been located on the 2nd or 3rd floors overlooking the adjacent courtyard, but this time we were consigned to the 6th floor and a dreary room looking out over bare walls and rooftops (a punishment for […] booking through Expedia perhaps, rather than direct with the hotel?!). Previously I had not focussed on how inconvenient it is to be positioned 6 floors up in a hotel with one single antiquated lift, especially at the height of the holiday season when the hotel is full. The high occupancy rate also marred the breakfasts, which were somewhat of a scrum, with dinners constantly milling around the buffet table. But perhaps the most noticeable change at The Diplomat is that its restaurant seems to have become one of the ‘trendy’ places to see and be seen dining in Stockholm, with the result that it is heaving with diners in the evenings. The piped music is unbearably loud and intrusive, and why is that restaurants think it acceptable to position tables so close together that one is effective dining with adjacent total strangers and it’s impossible to have an intimate meal in peace and quiet?! Before departing I checked out the adjacent Hotel Esplanade, which looks altogether an oasis of calm and refinement, and we’ll be staying there on our next Stockholm trip.

"Worth the $$"
We stayed one night, we were taking a Archipelago cruise early the next day so the location was perfect, right across the street. We arrived very early on the day of our reservation and the staff was pleasant and helpful about storing our bags for the day. The rooms, restaurant and common areas were lovely in an old school way. Neighborhood is very […] walkable and interesting. Yes, it"s pricey, but fun for a splurge! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Central hotel, convenient for everything."
A lovely room, very suitable for three of us, clean, comfortable. Only drawback was that we hit a heatwave and it was very difficult to open the windows, and couldn't turn off the underfloor heating in the lovely bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with a couple of issues"
This is a nice and perfectly located hotel. It has an ancient and inefficient elevator that can be annoying and we also found the front desk understaffed at times. Still a nice place to stay and the location could not have been better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great central waterfront location"
Can't fault the location, room or cleanliness. We didn't eat in the hotel, so can't comment on the quality of the food or restaurant facilities. Only fault was the scrum at check-in at 3.15 p.m., caused (apparently) by a wedding the day before where all guests had late check-outs coupled with the arrival of a number of cruise ship passengers. Although […] check-in is stated as 3 p.m., the rooms were not ready and a number of guests were, not surprisingly, not happy! There were only 2 computer terminals available at the check-in desk, which compounded the problem and exacerbated the queues. Our own room was available just after 4 p.m. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Well located hotel"
This hotel was conveniently located for sightseeing and shopping. It was well managed and the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Allowing for the constraints of an older building the room was comfortable and well appointed. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
