“Perfect for a three day stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

First time in Iceland. Hotel very comfortable. Rooms very minimalist warm and clean. Bit of an odd set up with shower. Wet room really but take care if shower head not angled correctly everything gets wet.

Sky roof top bar nice for snacks and a drink. Good views. Breakfast also in this bar. Breakfast very good plenty to choose from.

Would return to this centrally located hotel

This hotel is right on the harbour front and central to all of Reykjavik's sights. We couldn't have chosen better. We had a standard room which was very minimalist (not a lot of space to put your clothes) and quite small but very comfortable - perfect for us for 5 nights. We loved the large cosy bed with lovely quilts and pillows, and slept perfectly every night. There was underfloor heating so the room was a pleasure to come back to after a cold November day of sight-seeing. Breakfast was included in the price and there was a selection of juices/coffee/tea, bread/cereal/fruit/eggs/bacon/porridge served on the 8th floor Sky bar, with a wonderful view of the city. The receptionists were amazing - they couldn't do enough to help you. There's a free safe in the room (perfect for passports/travel documents) wi-fi, and a steam room, sauna, and thermal bath on the ground floor. I'd definitely go back there again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the harbour, the views are spectacular.

Great location, nice clean hotel. Large double bed, with warm soft quilts and pillows, really comfy!! Wonderful view from the top floor breakfast room/bar. The northern lights were visible from this breakfast room/bar, over the harbour. Rooms very minimalist, no wardrobe or drawers, but this did have the benefit of making sure you left nothing behind on leaving! Breakfast good, wide choice and hot! A safe in the room, at no extra cost, and a fully stocked mini bar. Ample towels, and the room was visited daily by hotel cleaning staff, with consumed items replenished and beds made. I would definitely stay at this location again.

Just returned from 5 night trip staying at this hotel which we couldn't fault. We only booked a standard room (deluxe were available at extra cost) and were delighted to be given a room with a wonderful view of the sea, harbour entrance and snow topped mountains. The Sky restaurant where an excellent breakfast is served, has fantastic views of the harbour, mountains and surrounding area - there is an outside terrace perfect for taking great pics but a bit cold in Nov for alas fresco dining.

The room was very comfy with all our needs catered for - tea/coffee making, mini bar, hair dryer, toiletries, shower caps, flannels and of course plenty of towels with a large wet room type bathroom (no bath). The large bed (2 singles pushed together) was so comfy with soft pillows & duvet - best I've experienced in a hotel.

Receptionists were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and they helped us with hire car booking, printing off details of places to visit by 4x4 and phoning Iceland Excursions (Grayline) regularly for us to check if Northern Lights trips were going ahead and to book our airport transfer bus.

We also found Iceland Excursions to be first rate- having read a few reviews about excursions I was expecting coach trips to be a bit chaotic but this was not the case with Iceland Excursions, everything went really well and the Guides were very good.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 610 - a standard room but quiet and comfy with great views. Lifts are reliable.

This hotel is in a perfect location, 'very' close to Reykjavik City centre, shops and restaurants. We had a room on the 7th floor facing the harbour, mountains and Harpa centre. Even managed to see a glimpse of the Northern Lights from our room one night. The breakfast is excellent, very good choice of hot and cold buffet and as Iceland is 'very' expensive especially at most of their restaurants, it is a very good idea to fill yourself up with a good breakfast to start your day off. The staff their are all very friendly and helpful and like all Icelanders they speak perfect English. The rooms are not very big, but very clean and you have everything you need, tea & coffee making facilities in rooms, basic toiletries. The bathroom/shower is a wet room which is fine by us, just remember to put items you don't want getting wet, out of aim of the shower. The beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floors and facing the Harper centre.

If you are expecting 5 star luxury, this is not the place for you. But if you want a nice hotel in a great location, reasonably priced, with comfortable and immaculately clean rooms, then this is a great choice. Beds were comfortable with heavenly comforters. Staff were very pleasant. Breakfast was truly fantastic with homemade bread to die for. And the view of the water and the Harpa were beautiful. The only down side is the shower which was small and had warm, not hot water ( really a shower head with a movable half door); Also, the room temperature was very warm at night and the room got hot and we couldn't figure out how to cool it down. Walking distance to everything. Would recommend
