Great hotel, a short walk to all of downtown Rejkjavik. Friendly, helpful, clean and breakfast is good. There is original art displayed and a Pilates room for a workout. All tours will pick you up here and plenty of free parking. A 👍 from a traveler.

A gem. Rooms are not massive but the essentials are there. Really appreciated the toiletries, decor and friendly helpful staff. It's not right in the heart of the city but is pretty central, on a quiet street close to Hlemmur for city buses and about 10-15 minutes from

We used Greyline, although this will take you to the Greyline station, where you will be transferred to a smaller bus to go to the hotel. We didn't find this too much of an inconvenience, and is considerably cheaper than a bus direct from airport to hotel.

Hi Does the room price include breakfast? If not how much is it ? Thanks
Breakfast is probably not included. The price was an extra charge of 24 euro when I was there a month ago. But it was really good, but expensive.
