"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
"Great location in Stockholm"
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
We could have stayed here forever. Not only did our room exceed our expectations, but the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. This might have been the best hotel experience I've ever had.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.

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
"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
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

"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
"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
"Not up to standard"
A great location is all this hotel has going for it.... Certainly not the room size or overall condition. We were shown to our "superior courtyard view" room (room 323) to find a small room with a smaller window looking into a lightwell. Our complaints led to a change to a larger room, but still there were stairs inside the room to the bathroom, otherwise […] OK. The real problem came when we wanted to have an evening drink in the hotel lounge with friends. The loud and obtrusive music (with DJ) for the public bar is everywhere making it impossible to talk. We wanted to take our drinks up to another lounge on the first floor but were prevented by a security guard, who even said we could not take our drinks to our room! You have no choice but to leave and look for a drink elsewhere.... Not good enough for a supposed international hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A lovely find!"
I was very pleased with my choice of hotel when arriving at the Hotel Diplomat. It looks great from the outside and the inside! The position is just perfect, particularly if you want to be down by the water and within walking distance to the main areas of interest in Stockholm. I was pleased with the room and felt it met my expectations. It did not […] matter to me that I chose one without a view over the water since every day you walk out of the hotel to amazing views, and lovely fresh air that was very invigorating. The quaint old fashioned lift, and the lovely stain glass windows up the stairwell, as well as other features were all lovely. You can't go wrong with this hotel in terms of ambience, location, its cleanliness, and the friendly, welcoming staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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 location, room far too hot"
The hotel was in a great location, easy to walk everywhere! I was however slightly disappointed as the room was far too hot and only way to keep it cool was to have windows open but this then meant you had the hum of heating / air con units from outside. Also paid for superior room with courtyard view - wouldn't bother to be honest as courtyard view […] was painted wall on back of hotel, not something you want to look out at and very dark room. Room also felt small for a superior room! Really helpful staff and when we had a few problems they sorted it straight away for us. Lunch in the T/bar was lovely. Gym looked good but didn't use it. There is a great cafe (Cafe Linne) next door, really friendly staff, gorgeous cakes & pastries. Definitely recommend a visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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.

"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
