We stayed here for 4-nights during a recent trip to Reykjavik. It was easy to walk to shopping, Music Hall, restaurants. They have an included buffet breakfast, which is great because food in Iceland is EXPENSIVE, (We went to buffet at another hotel, that had the same food and it costs US $20!) Our room 256, overlooking the back area... More

Great place to stay. The location is centrally located so it is easy to walk everywhere. The rooms are spotless and the beds are comfortable. The staff at the front desk were all very helpful but Anna was amazing. She took such good care of us. She made reservations at the theater and restaurants and called ahead to our other... More

We give this hotel 2 stars- one for superb central location and one for cleanliness. We loved Iceland and it was one the best countried we have ever visited. This hotel however, was the only negative part of our trip. We arrived on Friday August 1st and checked out on Friday August 8th. The hotel has a bar inside on... More

We spent two nights in July. The room was pretty large, beds very comfortable, great bathroom. Staff was helpful. My only complaint is that wi-fi was poor in our room and I had to go into the hallway or the lobby to access the Internet.

We had a lovely night here at the end of our Journey through iceland. After experienced many 'different' overnight stay in iceland. This is the best one we had. Friendly staff, big clean rooms, ok breakfast. We asked for a silent room, and got one on the 6th floor, we felt very Lucky.... The only minus i can tell, is... More

We were at first concerned whether we had made the right choice because the front desk counter needed a new coat of paint and wondered whether that was a harbinger of things to come. However, we were relieved and delighted when we saw our updated, clean room with balcony on the 5th floor, facing a little park in the back.... More

Wasn't sure what to expect because it was billed as 2*/3* but had no need to worry. I'm a bit late in writing this but doing it now after booking it for my daughter and son-in-law, then realising myself just how good it was. They're going in during the schools' October week and will see more daylight than we did,... More

I have to start by saying that everyone working for this hotel was super-nice and professional. That being said, the location has problems. There are three nightclubs on the street and if you have the misfortune of taking a room above it you're listening to the thump-thump-thump of them all night long. Also, they're not only the smallest rooms in... More

This city is one for walking so stay in the center of the city. Staff was helpful and very pleasant. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Looked like it designed by IKEA! We were directed to every place was wanted plus some suggestions.
