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 loved the Hotel Diplomat. I splurged on a room overlooking the water and didn't regret it for a moment. I stayed in Stockholm to celebrate a family member's birthday and many of us stayed at Hotel Diplomat. The location was terrific-close to museums, good restaurants, waterfront cafes. The service was excellent and high tea and morning buffet breakfasts were terrific. Pricey but delicous. Highly recommend this hotel. And book the complimentary daily opportunity to take a hot tub and sauna in the hotel spa-private use by appointment. It was nice, especially the morning you arrive if your hotel room isn't ready. My room was ready however at 10:30 am which was incredibly nice of the hotel.
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!
