Stockholm’s Hotel Diplomat to open new hotel

New hotel at Östermalm’s Saluhall to open in 2018
As the City of Stockholm renovates and expands Östermalm’s Saluhall building during 2016-18, a new hotel will also be built in an adjoining property to be operated by the city’s privately owned Hotel Diplomat.
The new hotel, which will open in spring 2018, will be built adjacent to the Saluhall, or Food Hall, and have several restaurants, a food bar, a cocktail bar and its own deli.
“It feels both natural and exciting to be part of the creation of a new and attractive venue in an area where we, as a family, have been running a hotel and restaurant business for four generations,” said Anna Cappelen, chairman and co-owner of Hotel Diplomat.
“Here we are building a modern hotel that will be part of Östermalm’s Saluhall. The location, the range of services on offer and the surroundings will attract both national and international guests and customers to the Food Hall.”
She added: “The hotel will be more a lifestyle hotel, targeting guests who seek a lively environment with a focus on accommodation, food and a thriving ambience in the middle of beautiful Stockholm. The renovation of the entire neighbourhood around Östermalmstorg creates an attractive place to establish a sister hotel in a growing Stockholm.”
The new hotel will have 71 rooms and suites with “warm, modern and cosy furnishings, the latest technology, conference facilities and a spa”, according to a press release. The restaurant will offer organic and locally grown produce.
