Great b&b , the island experience was fun. Delightful staff. Real fun experience.
Take an evening picnic over and picnic outside the fortress overlooking the water, loads cheaper than eating in Vaxholm.
One member of our group walked with walking stick, it was quite a walk through the fortress to the B & B and pulling bags along so maybe not ideal for those with mobility problems .
Cost of morning /evening taxi was 200 krona so quite pricey , try and share.
I was afraid the room would feel cramped. 86 square feet advertised, but with the bathroom, it's more 100. Happily the room is very well organised and with the view on the gorgeous center open space It was a room I would not change for a wider ordinary room. I would like to have a similar room in every place I travel.
I always stay at Diplomat when I am in Stockholm,whether I come with my sister or husband. The location is fabulous and the hotel itself offers not only luxury, beauty and comfort, but incredibly welcoming and friendly staff. You feel really well looked after- it is like being in someone's home, rather than a 'busy' and impersonal hotel. All the staff I encountered were extremely helpful, but one person stood out, the chef Dennis Pilbladh. I suffer from diabetes and various allergies and he really went out of his way to help, even going out himself to shop for my needs. He is also a very nice person indeed! As you can tell I HIGHLY recommend Holel DIPLOMAT and its staff!
(Last time I stayed in room 621, which was very nice with a lovely sea view) Very much looking forward to my next stay.

Excellent hotel very central in the city and also with a magnificent view! Also very close to some of the best restaurants in Stockholm.
I love this city and the innovative and wonderful food you get here.

stayed here since no more (payable) rooms have been available in stockholm and I didn't mind the 1 hour train journey. the hotel itself is nice and clean. liked the maritime decorartions. the town itself seemed a bit deserted for a friday evening.
Walked into the apartment and I was blown away on how beautifully done everything was! The rooms were absolutely massive, so much space and comfort, felt like a home away from home. The kitchen, lounge, bathroom and dining room was lovely, didn't look cheap at all, been done to a high standard. Was greeted by a lovely woman who couldn't have been more welcoming, gave us so much information and made sure we were comfortable with everything, she really was a fantastic help. I also surprised to see how much food the fridge had in it, it had bread, milk, cheese, ham, fruit bowl, etc, what a lovely touch. Couldn't fault anything really, just perfect and easily the best accomodation I've ever stayed in, highly recommend to everyone!
