“50th birthday trip”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

This hotel is ideally situated and walkable to most attractions. Bed room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly. It is 20 mins walk from where the Arlanda bus drops you. I had a card and some fresh fruit as a birthday gift which was nice. Afternoon tea looked brilliant. I booked this well in advance and got a deal at £110 a night, bargain.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the water have a great view but might be noisy with a busy road outside

Stayed at the Diplomat last week in a standard room - good quality, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, quiet - who could ask for anything more? The buffet breakfast was huge (an enjoyable challenge), and desk staff very helpful (though more could have been on duty). The old cage lift crawling up the art nouveau stairwell is a vintage treat, but the rest of the hotel is straightforward semi-luxe modern. I'd happily stay there again.

The hotel is located in a brilliant area, right by the river and not too far from the shops. Very posh hotel, staff were brilliant and catered to our needs. The breakfast was very good, so much choice! The rooms were very warm and comfy, made us feel right at home. Would defiantly recommend and would like to come back in the future

Stayed here for a couple of nights because the Hotel Diplomat really has a fantastic location on the waterfront on Strandvägen in Stockholm, in the heart of this city. Our schedule was such that we sampled only a little of the hotel's amenities. The breakfast was good, but not quite up to what you might wish to expect from a hotel of this repute. The weather was not the best, so we decided for dinner the second evening at the hotel, but in a city like Stockholm that now boasts so many good restaurants, it's surprising that the menu here lacks the creativity that is now so popular.
The room we had was a bit dated. The hotel's popularity is also showing through the substantial wear of wooden floors in the rooms, the worn bathroom fixtures and coverings and every piece of the room upholstery carried a little too many stains and blots left by previous guests.
The beds were comfortable, but the ventilation was a bit dodgy so we never found a really good setting to justify the thick duvets.
Slightly disappointing stay given that this hotel promises an experience above the standard delivered, but again a very good location which does allow you easy access to other options for your meals.
But a makeover is due, maybe even overdue.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the courtyard are quite. If you have a car and park on the street, which is ok, don...

We only stayed one night at the Diplomat but we enjoyed every moment. It has just received a fresh look that makes is super comfortable and charming. Staff was super professional and helpful. The location is one of the most beautiful ones in Stockholm. Plus it has one of the best restaurants in town, T/Bar. I can't wait to go back and spend more time.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the harbor: they are a bit pricey but worth every dollar.

Stayed two nights at the Hotel Diplomat in February. Found the property to be an excellent choice for Stockholm. The T Bar where breakfast is served, is a lively evening spot as well. Had dinner there one night and it was excellent, as was the breakfast selection. The only negative comment I have is that there no doorman at the hotel. Managing baggage from the taxi up a few steps to the lobby is cumbersome. The front desk does bring up baggage from there.

Stayed for a one night, so didn't see much of the rest of the facilities. But a nice, classy and traditional hotel. Much enjoyed the breakfast. Room was clean and large, with good facilities. Thoroughly recommended!
