Stayed here for three nights earlier this month and enjoyed our stay. We had previously emailed to request a room at the front on one of the higher floors and this was granted so we had a great view of the sea and mountains. The room was pretty minimalist but had everything we needed and it was lovely and warm,... More

We excepted the room on the 1st floor over looking the ramp to the car park as the 1st room we were given next door to it had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke and even the receptionist agreed that we couldn`t stay in there. After they made up the sofa bed for my daughter and gave us more... More

The staff were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable but nothing can outweigh the hiking distance from downtown. You must take at least two buses to get downtown. Not impossible unless your vacation falls on a holiday, buses stop at 2...2 PM...but a challenge. Tour bus pick up is fine but on the return the tour bus may drop you off on... More

The hotel is where it is so there is not a lot that can be said about the location. But it is very unlikely in winter weather that anyone would want to walk in to Reykjavik centre on slippery pavements. The buses run about every 15 minutes and the taxi is 2500 isk. OK, but that money could be better... More

Perfunctory was the perfect word to describe this hotel. Nothing wrong with that, but you're not getting any frills. My closest US comparison to this hotel is something like a Club Quarters + breakfast. I was part of a tour group, so the hotel must have worked with them to ensure we got an early checkin as our flight arrived... More

I stayed here with my fiance for a 3 night trip in May 2014. We booked the deal through Secret Escapes and were very happy with this hotel.
