Stayed here for 3 nights with my mum. Was a lovely hotel, not extravagent but that's not want we wanted.

Received good service from Valentina and other friendly and helpful staff. Not fancy, but clean, safe and reasonably convenient location. Clean room, bed reasonably comfortable, decent size closet with shelf area to store stuff. Nice powerful shower! only annoying thing is the curtain sticks to you since it is a little loose. TV couldn't pick up many channels. Wifi weak... More

The hotel staff were all very kind and helpful to me when I had trouble and particularly when I had arrived way before check-in time after a very early morning arrival at the airport. The rate was reasonable and I would stay there again.

Hotel Ørkin is a friendly place and is a 20 minute walk from the city centre. I had a good welcome to the hotel where I was given a complete rundown of the hotel services including breakfast times, wifi activation code. My room was on the first floor with a view of the sea and Mount Esja in the distance.... More

Considering the price this is a good hotel. Very friendly staff and proven to be helpful as well. Rooms aren't big but it simply has everything you need. Not that far from central Reykjavik, but it requires some walking getting there.

Hotel Orkin was much less expensive than other hotels with parking. The room was normal European size with standard continental breakfast. Free hot drinks and cake are available at all times and there is a communal lounge. Good restaurant and a bar one block away. The staff were helpful. Slightly longer walk to the start of the main city centre... More

Nice breakfast with the best boiled eggs I have tasted in a very long time. is also free tea, coffee and cakes served every afternoon which is nice. The hotel is probably about 15/20 minutes walk to the town centre but... More

This was a really nice little hotel in Reykjavík. The staff were very friendly. Our flight arrived quite early and we were at the hotel by 8 AM. They invited us to have breakfast even though we weren't getting a room until that night. Breakfast was complimentary and it was very nice. They stored our luggage for the day while... More
