Highly recommend this hotel for its location. It is a great "base of operation" to explore the city.
The front desk staff was always friendly and really helpful with suggestions & reservations when asked.

Tiny lift but everything else welcoming and easy. Staff multilingual. Views of harbour from front rooms, many restaurants nearby. Rooms typically on small side. Good breakfast buffet. Close to major sites. This makes for easy walking and trams run past the front on Strandvagen.

Love this place. everything good except the fitness center. Nice private hot tub for the two of us, but if you are into working out this isn't any fitness spa! Rooms are small "European" style, but bath is quite large. Nice clean linens, great bar staff. Breakfast is still the same after more than a year, but many options at the buffet. Pricey meals and portions are small, but there are many options nearby, The Bull & the Bear, the English pub, A sports bar too. Right at the harbor, many options, not too far to t he museum and Old Town too.

Stayed a weekend with my wife. We are very happy with our stay.

As former Stockholm resident I can only say this a great location: right by the water, with cultural sights, and shopping right around the corner.

The hotel offers excellent service (by Swedish standards). We met friends in the bar before going for dinner and the bartender wen out of his way to take good care of us. Breakfast offers a good choice and is of high quality. In summer you can enjoy it at a table outside, on the sidewalk.

Very happy with stay and would love to go back

Close to downtown, view over the sea, nice "romantic" interiors and good service. What else can you ask for? The breakfast oin Tbar is also great; great buffet and nice view over Strandvagen and the sea

Room Tip: A room with a view is nice, but naturally costs more. Try to avoid the single rooms if you can, they...

Rooms are smallish but large modern bathrooms. Staff is friendly and multilingual . Had to haul luggage up and down several steps ourselves- no ramps. Tiny elevator but pretty. Nice waterfront views is you pay more but little courtyard view very acceptable too.

I selected Hotel Diplomat based on location and other TripAdvisor reviews. Check in was slow (not their fault) as we arrived at 9:30am - of course our room was not ready but we hoped for noon, they said 3, and it was three. We walked the city for 6 hours and go tired - but when in the room all was fine. Small rooms (very scandanavian as compared to larger north american rooms, but the bed was comfortable and that was ll that mattered. Each night we looked forward to a comfortable sleep.
Although on a busy street, the traffic noise at night is not noticable.
Superb location - a one minute walk to canal cruise boats, dinner cruises etc. A ten minute walk to old town which is a tourist mecca.
Had drinks in the T-Bar on main floor and dinner in the T-Bar restaurant beside the bar. Very good food, reasonable prices considering you location. Drinks and dinner for 4 was 2,000 SEK. My veal was soft as a marshmallow.
Breakfast buffet is usual and nothing I can say against it. Don't overeat because there are lovely outdoor cafe's for lunch throuhout the city,.
They have a lovely old fashioned cocktail bar upstairs but unfortunately only open in winter. I would have loved to go there for a martini.
I would choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: The national theatre is one block away (can't miss it, all the gold leaf statues). They have gu...
