We stayed for a long weekend in February, hoping to see the Northern Lights which unfortunately we didn't manage to catch. The hotel is in an excellent location in the heart of Reykjavik, which is a relatively small city in comparison to UK cities. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and the main shopping street and major sites are a pleasant stroll away.
The hotel itself is great! Spotlessly clean and superbly run. The staff are friendly and helpful and will book trips for you and point out places to visit.
The rooms are lovely; we were not expecting anything so luxurious for the price we paid. Again they are immaculate, clean and tidy. Good range of toiletries and a superb power shower. British channels on TV are a little plus when you come back to your room to unwind. Yes the hot water smells of sulphur but this is the case all over and you get used to it quickly.
The micro bar down stairs is a must, I'm not a beer drinker but enjoyed trying some of the locally brewed ales.
Yes you can hear partygoers of a weekend but then isn't this the case in most city centre hotels?
A very good hotel in a great location!
