T/BAR is a hotel restaurant but definitely stands on it’s own. The timeless decor and the meticulous care makes Krogguiden [=the editors] thrive . . . The menu characterises a classic kitchen. There are honest and safe compositions without eyebrow-raising tricks. The chicken croquettes arrive exemplary newly-fried, the duck liver terrin is served at the perfect temperature, and the crunchy hazelnuts and sweet-sour pear marmelade perfectly complement with texture and taste.



“The warm atmosphere and the helpfulness of the staff, are aspects that many guests acknowledge as the most prominent advantages of Hotel Diplomat. The personalised service has been a long-standing vision at the hotel. This familial and personal feeling is made possible perhaps by the fact that the hotel is owned and operated by the same family since start, and the Malmströms have owned and maintained the property since 1917. The hotel has over the years attracted many loyal visitors, who see the hotel as ‘a second home’.”


Di Weekend

“Celebrity spotting and pleasure on the high street … The hotel is owned by the family Malmström and the address is just as fashionable. The feeling of luxury appears immediately. We check in, leave the bags in the room and sit down on the terrace with a glass of champagne to catch what might be this year’s last warm afternoon sun…”

“From the outside, this ancient private property resembles a hotel at the Croisette of Cannes. Inside, it‘s salons breathe an intimate atmosphere with stucco and Neo Doric columns. Located at Strandvagen, most of the hotel’s 130 rooms offer views of the prestigeous boulevard’s adjacent quay.

“Hotel Diplomat is no doubt one of Stockholm’s most picturesque hotels. . . Its’ reputation as a fancy, hip and contemporary hotel precedes it – it is one of those hotels that everyone has heard of, if not visited.”

“My parents live there [in Stockholm], but I stay at Hotel Diplomat, then it’s close to taking a lap around Djurgarden” – Caroline Winberg interviewed by Svensk Damtidning

“Stockholm’s Hotel Diplomat sits by the water, the boats facing it will take you to most of the city’s thousands of islands but more importantly it’s in Ostermalm, a most elegant district where there may be a 17 year wait list for residential rentals in smart properties, but for visitors it’s a concentration of beautiful shops and celebrated restaurants within walking distance. The Diplomat may look serious – Scandinavian art-deco, imposing facade, it once housed embassies, thus the name – but as the doors slide silently back to reveal a blast of hot air, cool music and a cocktail bar, you get the picture pretty quickly.” – Derek Guthry.

“Few visitors of T/BAR are aware that upstairs, there’s a better world in the unique Cocktail Bar, where legendary bartender Clas Ryrstam mixed drinks for 40 years, until 2011. Today, Karl from Charlston handles the mixology, but the experience remains an Anglo-Saxon mini estate with personalised service.” – Tomas Smiarowsky, Veckans Affärer


ELLE, Germany

“Do not miss!

In the middle of the city centre, facing the water and not far from the Royal Castle – you cannot ask for a better location than the boutique hotel Diplomat. And the interior is also just right. Famous Architect Per Öberg adds the harmony and bright colours, that is so typical for Scandinavian design, to the rooms. The walls are garnished with the work of Swedish artists. And the Retreat houses a wonderful Spa…”
