We stayed here for one night at the end of September. The hotel is perfectly situated – right downtown, in the middle of the hustle and bustle, with everything within walking distance: shops, cafes, restaurants, harbour/marina, the Harpa and shoreline walk, Culture House, City Hall, etc.
The hotel is clean and modern, boutique-ish. Our room was on the top floor (6th), with a nice view of Austurvöllur Square and the Parliament House. There’s a small dining area where a delicious breakfast is served. On the Saturday night we were there, it was full of locals and tourists having drinks.
There’s a small elevator that’s a little quirky – you just have to make sure the second door is closed properly, or it won’t operate – no big deal.
The staff here is amazing - everyone was so friendly and helpful, from the servers at breakfast to the general manager who apologized for not responding within 24hrs to our email request (he included breakfast with our stay). Dodi especially deserves a special mention – he walked with my husband to show where to park the car for free, helped us with our luggage, showed us how to use the elevator, pointed out places on the map, and gave us great suggestions on where to eat (we wanted Italian or Indian that night). It really made for such a pleasant stay!
