me and my wife stayed over for one night when we arrived in iceland on 8th november 2013. We rented the car and to be honest with the construction going around the hotel, it was very tough to find the small roads leading to it because all roads were blocked off. We had to drive up to the main road next to the harbour and turn in from there instead, was quite a find if you asked me, and frstraiting to say the least. But once we got to the property, it was gorgeous. service was very good. we were put up in room 304, which was on the second floor. Getting the bags up is a little tough as the stairway is narrow and with 20kg suitcases, it does get a little tricky at times. Once we got up, it was a nice cosy room with a small kitchen. room was very cosy, beds were extremely comfortable. Only small issue we had was that in the toilet, there wasnt a shower curtain, so it was a little bit inconvenient when we had to shower, floors were getting soaked through, even with our due diligence in taking care of showering carefully.
location was unbeatable, it was just one street off the main shopping belt, barely 2 min walk. We didnt take the breakfast option, however can i suggest you dont take it as there is a nice bakery just 5 min walk from it. Its called Bakery Sandhot located on Laugavegur 36, which is one street off the hotel and the stuff they sell there is amazing! they open at 630am onwards. You can find that in my other review.
Overall, the property itself is good, service is brilliant, front desk was extremely helpful, even helped us with a reservation at a local icelandic restaurant. However becuase of the construction ongoing now, it is a problem finding the property as there are no direct roads to the hotel, and you have to navigate your own to the small roads at the back of the hotel instead, which doesnt show up on the GPS. Other than that, i would recommend this hotel just because of the property, its as good as it gets and the location is unbeatable. However pls take note of the construction as from the looks of it, it will probably be ongoing for at least another 3-6 months from what we observe.
Try choosing a room on the same floor as the reception or at the first floor which is the same floor...
