“BEAUTIFUL HOTEL”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Lovely classic updated hotel on the water, short walk to Palace etc. Only 1 small elevator, so use the stairs whenever possible. Large bathroom, comfortable beds and pillows. A step up/down into the room from the bathroom, so be careful at night. Free wi-fi in room. Very pleasant staff.

Room Tip: Room on courtyard with view of the water. Ours was on the 4th floor with a large balcony.

We stayed here for 5 nights over the Midsummer holiday period. Our room was on the fifth floor and to the front, complete with window box of flowers. Looking out over the water was great, although the boats in the early morning as they prepared for their busy day ahead, could be noisy. Our room was very comfortable as was the king size bed but the bathroom lacked storage space for toilet bags etc. The staff were excellent and helpful. The food is of a high quality and always very fresh. The restaurant can be very busy both at breakfast time and in the evening. The hotel is relatively expensive, as is Stockholm generally but we would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Room Tip: When booking, online or by telephone, best to clearly state what type of room you require, eg quiet...

We stayed here one night after a Baltic cruise and were very pleased with the location, within walking distance of all the major sites and restaurants. The problems were with the very small rooms (we couldn't open all four suitcases at the same time) and the very minimal room design, almost stark. The bathroom was tiny and could barely accommodate one person at a time.
No lobby to speak of and an elevator from the turn of the century. The lobby of the Grand Hotel a block away was more active and bustling with good drinks and light meals that provided a cheerful atmosphere missing from the Diplomat.

Lovely hotel with cheerful, tremendously accommodating personnel. This hotel is within walking distance to most attractions and we would definitely stay there again. Our room was lovely and the bathroom huge! Everything was exceptionally clean and beautiful. The room was beautifully decorated and the beds extremely comfortable.

A superbly located hotel with a very consistent high level of service and customer awareness. The hotel has a distinct, welcoming and vibey, yet gracious ambience. Good food, well appointed, modern room, friendly, professional staff. Technology all on tap all functional. What a pleasure!

Spent a long weekend with my wife and two boys (2 & 4) Room was clean and well appointed. Bathroom was a little bit on the small side. Staff were great and even left teddy bears for the boys. Breakfast is a good selection and generally good quality ( but please work on the scrambled eggs)

The location is excellent for sightseeing and shopping.

Would happily return.

Although I rather disappointingly had a single room whilst all of my work colleagues were upgraded to double rooms, I really liked this hotel. The room was admittedly rather small but very comfortable and reasonably quiet which made for a good nights sleep. I even had a partial sea view. The reception staff were truly delightful - so friendly and welcoming which was a really great start for our stay. Breakfast was at first a little disappointing as none of the cooked items had been replenished but after a brief wait this was all rectified. I think they could do with finding somewhere bigger to lay all the breakfast items out as it was very squashed and you couldn't really very easily see what was available. Dinner in the T bar restaurant in the evening was really excellent. Fabulous steak, unusual pulled pork burger to start and a great atmosphere. The waitress also looked after us very well. All in all, I want to come back to this hotel although I will try to get a double room overlooking the harbour with a balcony to make the most of this lovely hotel.
