On the Iceland tour when I first booked, details showed this hotel as a possibility but clearly stated that could change. On receiving the final tickets, however, this hotel was still shown. There was miscommunication and instructions about room requirements I’d sent to the USA booking agents which, allegedly, were not received by the Reykjavik tour company. The accommodation in...

We had a "room" with shared facilities. The room was so small that it was unpleasant to even think about spending more than the absolute minimum time there. The hotel is gloomy, the breakfast with low quality food.

The rooms were simple but clean and everything worked (plumbing, shower, fittings) and the free Wifi was ample to stream BBC radio. There were five of... More

We were given the key to our room but no information regarding breakfast etc. On entering our room we thought the decor dated but ok and it was... More

My boyfriend and I did a driving tour of Iceland In March 2014 for my birthday. Due to bad weather we ended up staying at the hotel for two nights. However he and I both agreed this was the best place we stayed at during the whole 10 days of our trip! The service we received from the staff was... More
