Large rooms, ensuite, would have enjoyed a stove, but has a microvawe. Very clean, fairly quiet, close to everything and visibly newly overhauled. Felt at home. Adjustable heat. Very nice, full house☆☆☆

Very cozy place, small, nice rooms. You can find everything you need. Perfect location, you can find a lot of good restaurants and nice places to chill and have amazing food! One thing, we asked for 2 separate beds, but we get very small room with double bed.

The room was not clean, maybe the bed, but the floor was dirty and the walls even more. If you want to sleep here during the weekend it is hard to go to sleep, there is a lot of noise from the bars around and also there is a lot of people going in and out of the building and you can hear everything that goes on in the hallway. Otherwise it was good, short distance from all stores and restaurants and the bed was nice.

Despite it's unprepossessing exterior, the apartment we were in proved to be modern and we'll appointed, if a tad on the small side. It was also convenient to the center of town and the shops and cafe district. Unfortunately, my daughter, who slept on the sofa bed now in the living room, was severely bitten by bedbugs and in considerable distress the following day. Would have given this place 3 start s otherwise.

We stayed here for one night in August 2018 while traveling the ring road. Here are my notes, which should be helpful to other travelers: - The hotel is all self-service. It is 2 levels with no elevator. The proprietor will send you a key code and room number to access the building and the room. - The building and the room are very clean and modern. - Although it is self check in, some staff may still available by phone. They responded to my request for extra pillows. - Our room was very spare. The described “double bed” was larger than expected (more like a Queen size). There was a chair, small refrigerator, electric kettle and mugs for tea/coffee, and 2 night stands. - En suite bathroom has hand soap and shampoo/body wash combo in shower. There are no shelves and nowhere to put anything in the bathroom. The bathroom does have a hair dryer. - We couldn’t find the designated parking so parked in the public lot. It wasn’t an issue because we arrived after 7p and departed by 10am. - All in all, it was a positive experience. I would encourage the owners to add a shelf or stool in the bathroom so guests have a place to put a few toiletries.
