“Good central location”
Reviewed May 31, 2009

Stayed here just for the one night. We got there after dark, so couldn't see the area very well, but the hotel is located by the Quayside, where you can go on boat trips during the summer. The hotel itself was very nice and the staff were very welcoming. The rooms appear to be quite old fashioned, but everything worked well and we were very comfortable there.

Breakfast was good, with a wide variety of food to choose from and a good view across the quay.

We didn't eat at the hotel for our evening meal and instead we walked over to the Old Town, Gamla Stan, which was a pleasant walking distance away. Lots of restaurants to choose from there, though it can get quite busy.

If you are staying here in between flights, as we did, you can get the train from the airport into the town. It is fast and frequent, though probably a bit on the expensive side, as the taxi driver reckoned he could have done the jounrye for the same cost. Buy your tickets in the airport and ask for a return which saves you a bit of money. We had to get a taxi from the train to the hotel - it is a bit too far to walk.

I loved this hotel even though the view from the room was rooftops and skyline
It was expensive but the cost of living is in these p[laces good room facilities. Lovely Spa and restaurant and and the staff was commendable in their bending backwards to make you comfy.

We stayed here two nights in April and had an enjoyable stay. The best part of the stay was the bed, which was a Dux. First time that both of us had slept on a Dux bed and we were pleasantly surprised by the comfort...although after checking the retail price of the beds at department store NK, we will probably wait a while to purchase one.

Location: The hotel is located about an 8 minute walk from the closest subway station, but there is a bus stop that is 2 mins away that takes you to the city center. The hotel is located right by the water and is in one of the safest neighborhoods in the city.

Breakfast: Large selection of food, although the dining room can be packed at times.

Rooms: Bed was nice as previously mentioned, but the decor is certainly well worn and the bathroom decor was very old, but clean. We had a balcony with water views, which was a nice touch.

I went to Stockholm for work with two Colleagues and chose the Diplomat because of the location and excellent price. We all absolutely loved the Diplomat! It was in a perfect location and we walked everywhere. The rooms were quiet, clean and spacious. I would come back to this hotel in a heartbeat!

My wife and I stayed here several times. It is a nice hotel but the rooms are just too small for the price. We also did not appreciate hearing our neighbor snoring all night! Thin walls...
For these reasons and after they took breakfast off the price of the room a month ago we stopped using this hotel .

Hotel diplomat is located in a luxury shopping district, with louis vuitton and prada within a two minute walk. The hotel is lovely, and rooms are very comfortable. My partner didn't want to get out of bed, as they were soo comfortable! Bathrooms are good, with l'octaine toiletries and hairdryer. Two tube stations are within 5 minute walk, each only one stop away from central station. We got a 3 day tube pass, for about £16 each, to use whenever we wanted on the whole system. The city loves TGI fridays, there are quite a few scattered around, and there are plenty of cosy restaurants and bars near the hotel. The hotels restaurant, T-Bar is quite expensive (then again, so is the whole of stockholm!) but the food is esquisite. Lunch won't be cheaper than £40 for 2, so a good tip is to go on a brunch cruise (right opposite hotel) for £40 you get a cruise of the archipego and buffet lunch. Sat and Sun at 12 midday, you can queue outside and pay after the cruise.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Diplomat and were very pleased with the experience. Excellent hotel centrally located. Stylish room, very spacious and comfortable. Delicious, fresh, extensive breakfast selection. We booked an excellent room with waterview on the 3th floor instead of the regular room and it was a lot nicer. The view from our window was beautiful. Our room was clean, high-ceilinged and very spacious, with a huge bed. The Diplomat is located in a beautiful part of Stockholm. Across the street from the water and walking distance from shopping, old town and the best restaurants, museums and sights in the Swedish capital.
