The hotel is located in close proximity to the many restaurants and shops on Laugavegur. We had a two room suite with a comfortable queen in one room and a sofa bed in the other. The living room also had a small kitchenette complete with sink, frig and dishes/utensils. Unlike other showers we encountered in Iceland, the shower was actually... More

We were there at the end of our three weeks trip through Iceland. It was just disappointing. The room was very small and old furniture, just one small closet. The windows very very small and extremly dirty. The lightings for the room did not give any comfortable light in the room. The bath room was with open shower-the whole bath... More

The hotel is located directly at the ocean. I booked an ocean view room in the 5th floor, which was totally worth it. I arrived at around 20:30 so I didn't want to go eat outside, so I went to de Dominos Pizza restaurant which is located comfortably 200m from the hotel. All in all a very great place to... More

This hotel is one of the many Fosshotels in Iceland. We had booked two double rooms in this hotel for the night of our arrival in Reykjavik . After a flight from the US we arrived around 1 am in the morning at the hotel. The room that was given to my husband and I was okay with twin beds... More

Spent 5 night at this lovely, quiet European-style hotel. The critics must normally stay at lodging with room service, doormen, mini bars. The Front Desk personnel are service oriented and very pleasant. Wron and Eva Rose worked with me via email to locate quarters larger than standard triple since we were traveling with active 12 yr. old. Euro 25 charged... More

We stayed here twice during our visit to Iceland. Both stays had been booked through the company that arranged our driving tour. Check in was great and front desk staff helped us with some local calls and other arrangements - very welcoming. Our first room was very small, and while clean, needed updating especially the carpet. The second stay was... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The location was perfect - an easy 10-15 minute walk to the city centre either via the main shopping streets or along the lovely seawall, but far enough out from downtown to avoid noise. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful, and the breakfast offers a great selection (though can be very crowded depending... More

We booked a two bedroom apartment for two nights. We were given apartment 106 on the first floor just above the lobby area. The bathroom smelled of urine (not hot water sulphur) so bad which we think came from the bathroom floor drain; we were then given apartment 110 down the hall which was much better. Natalia, the front desk... More

But the manager of the hotel did move us to a sister hotel and that was excellent. I... More

During your short visit we showed you a few room types as we were trying to find you a room to your liking, so you must know that most of our rooms are quite... More
