Second stay this year. Smallish hotel in an excellent location. Very helpful & professional staff. Small restaurant with limited but high quality menu (n.b. Swedish prices are very high). Old world charm but rooms & bathrooms have some quirks that, though probably unavoidable because of the hotel's age, could be improved. Very popular with locals at lunch and dinner so can feel crowded.

"Fabulous location and staff"
Just had my second stay in the hotel. The staff is sensational. Very helpful. Location is absolutely perfect. The size of the hotel is big enough to accommodate the guests with services but intimate enough not to feel like one of the big Chains. Only thing I do not understand is the lack of a Porter. Some of us are not 18 with a small suitcase. I will definitely be back, porter or no porter. Inky Amoroso

"A little gem of a hotel"
The hotel was clean and pleasant. It retained some original charm. like the European cage style elevator that looked like the one in "Charade" with Audrey Hepburn and Carey Grant. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to give us directions, suggestions etc. The manager even set up an email account for me when my own did not work. I would not have been able to do it because it was all in Swedish. Also, the breakfasts were sumptuous and had every kind of food item you could want. And, the food was served on real china. No styrofoam thank you. I would go back.

Be sure to ask where to get traditional Swedish cinnamon buns. Only one minor problem: the single historic elevator is often slow and/or unavailable when the door is not closed just so.

"A Lovely Stay"
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff were welcoming, the accommodations nicely appointed and there was a wonderful old world feel to the hotel - especially the elevator. It was great to just "step across the street" to the harbor or walk only a few blocks to The Old Town. We look forward to a return visit to Stockholm and the Hotel Diplomat!

"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.

"Loved it"
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.

"Elegant stay"
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.

"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.

We stayed in the Diplomat three times before and found it most comfortable This time we had a smaller room than previously, probably because of the cheaper rate booking through you On arrival we found you had booked two rooms instead of one which is a mystery which l would quite like to know how it happened..... However the staff were most pleasant, if baffled Altogether our stay was pleasant

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.

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

"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. Missi Eimer from London, but 'born and bred' in Sweden.

"AGAIN DISAPOINTED"
Is it ordering with Hotels.com, that gives us the worst rooms? Got a room next to a 1st floor bar, connection door to other floors (2nd upwards-people standing and talking, singing etc all night opening this entrance/security door), shower was leaking, mini bar door was not possible to close, kleenex paper holder fell out, outside flag rope slapping the window, and even we reminded about this to reception, nothing was done! This is now 3rd time I order a better room through Hotels.com, but looks that due to Hotels.com budget prices, I get the worst room in the hotel!

"Excellent Location"
Excellent location, central to shops and only a walking distance from the main museums and old part of town, only negative I would say is that the restaurant at nightime and breakfast is very busy and tables are very close together to maximise the people they can cater for, at one point three of us had to share a table for two making it very tough. Staff were very good though.

"Disappointed"
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.

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!
