Considering a visit to Stockholm? Plan your stay in advance. Start with the right choice of accommodation that would add to your positive impressions and contribute to your exploration of the city. Are you on a business trip and have to stay in the centre of financial and business area, yet would like to enjoy picturesque scenery? Then your obvious choice is Hotel Diplomat on Strandvägen – Stockholm’s most fashionable boulevard, originating from the late nineteenth century, in the times of King Oscar II. The classic art nouveau ‘building number 7’ that now houses the hotel, was completed in 1911 and this year celebrates its 100th anniversary.
The present owner Sune Malmström turned the building into a modern hotel in 1966 and took the name Hotel Diplomat.
The Malmström family bought the impressive building in 1918 and during the depression let out several of the grand apartments to foreign embassies. The remaining apartments were converted into hotel rooms. During 1940-60 Strandvägspensionatet was run on the first floor. The present owner Sune Malmström turned the building into a modern hotel in 1966 and took the name Hotel Diplomat.
Today Hotel Diplomat is an exclusive four-star PLUS hotel, that successfully combines classic elegance of the Art Nouveau building with all the modern amenities necessary to meet the expectations of the contemporary guest. Internationally renowned architect Per Öberg who lies behind the recently completed renovation has set the tone of the hotel. He managed to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere that incorporates high standards, quality and comfort, with the traditions of the building.
The Hotel’s 130 individually designed rooms and suites are each unique with their own individual character. Those rooms facing the harbour offer their guests one of the city’s most beautiful views – that of Nybroviken with its steamboats starting off to Stockholm's archipelago and returning back. Comfortable DUX beds made up with the finest Portuguese cotton sheets provide for a deep and restful sleep. A good deal of time and thought has been put into design and comfort of the bathrooms which are now of the highest standard to give our guests a luxurious feeling that is touched up with exclusive body care products from French L’Occitane.
