That was a plus point to us. Hospitality of the hotel was good. Very tall dude at the reception was really cool and helpful. Rooms were bit small to move around...but were... More

Just left this hotel after staying here for 5 days. I couldn't have picked a better hotel. The hotel is located in a great location close to many restaurants and the center of town. Breakfast was included when I booked. Staff was very friendly and always willing to help with any questions or bookings we had. We stayed in room... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in mid-Feb. This is a lovely hotel that I really recommend for the price and quality. This is a long review because I know how much they can help others!

Just stayed there for one night, but if i knew better i would've stayed longer for my 4 day trip in Iceland! Nice room (not huge) and bathrooms and was very welcomed by the staff. The front desk was absolutely friendly, helpful and informative! Super recommended!

It was within easy walking distance of most of the if not all of the spots in the city. the room was quite comfortable and quiet at night. They had a cafe which became a micro bar at night and...

Decent hotel with an excellent location - close to everything. Staff were helpful.
