Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, had a great time and thought the staff were amazing and really helpful. We experience lots of issues with Reykjavik Excursions but the staff could not do more to help us. The room was not massive and as it was on the main road it was slightly noisy on Friday and Saturday night... More

I loved this hotel. Location was within walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops you could possibly need. Was also a 2 minute walk around the corner from the Grayline tours central office which was convenient for getting to tour buses. All the staff we encountered were awesome, especially Finnur! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, even... More

Stayed in March for three nights.Comfortable warm clean rooms.Friendly helpful staff,tasty breakfasts what's not to like? Would recommend this place,you get a lot of hotel for the money. A little word of caution like any city centre hotel it can get a little noisy in the surrounding streets but nothing too over the top and we had no trouble sleeping.

We stayed here for 4 nights in March, the staff were extremely welcoming (even at 1.30am!) really helpful making sure all of our trips were confirmed and directing us on where to go and what to see. Our room was lovely and clean and had a great view of the square from the 6th floor. Free wifi for our whole... More

The rooms had nice space and great bathroom facilities. Our room had a balcony where we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights from. Elevators and a nice breakfast buffet. The staff were exceptional with being helpful and nice. They recommended both restaurant's and places to shop which were great.

We actually ended up staying at this hotel instead of traveling out east because Iceland had one of its worst blizzards in years that day, and they were very accomodating and helpful. They even made dinner reservations for us even as we checked in very late after making it back from the weather problems. It was a good, clean hotel... More

Very central location, we had a room which over looked the square and looked beautiful when it snowed. Breakfasts was €10 each which you can help yrself to scrambled egg, sausages, bacon, plenty of bread for toast and a fresh loaf., yogurts plus you can have as much tea of coffee as you like. Very good value especially when you... More

The hotel is very central. Close to many bars, restaurants and attractions. There is no restaurant but the breakfast bar turns in to a local beer bar after 16:00. I can highly recommend the tasting menu! Some rooms in the hotel can get noisy from the surrounding bars. Although, we didn't have any issues. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room... More

This was my second time staying in this hotel, and I intend to return when I am in Reykjavik. I would like to start by complimenting the hotel, Farooq in particular, for being ready for our arrival. I was arriving from the US early in the morning. I was traveling with my elderly parents, one of whom is quite infirm.... More
