Our room was one of four on the top (first) floor. (There are rooms at ground level, numbered 2, and below ground level, numbered 1). Be aware that there is no lift and you’ll probably have to carry your own luggage. The room was big enough for two with room to move, with a small table and two chairs, an... More

My mum and I had a fabulous first night in Iceland staying here. Service was impeccable and room beautiful and spacious. L'occitane toiletries were an added bonus. The hotel was being painted while we were there too which did not bother us in the slightest but management were nice enough to leave us a complimentary bottle of wine. Nice and... More

We stayed in one of the suites. We had a gorgeous view facing east. The hotel is close to Harpa Concert Hall, Sun Voyager Sculpture and great shopping and dining options. The rooms are beautifully designed. I loved the white tile with gray walls and the touches of green and blue. The black out shades were wonderful for sleeping, but... More

This relatively small apartment hotel was a great place to stay in Reykjavik. We arrived at 2 AM in the morning were a bit concerned if somebody would be available for us to be able to check in and get our room. But this was not a problem at all. The small apartment had a sleeping area with a king... More

Someone else just wrote a good review of the three bedroom experience so I won't recreate much here. Great hotel. They get to know you quickly and are very responsive (we couldn't find the detergent, called the front desk and a guy literally sprinted to our room with it). Do the breakfast deal - worth it. Only FYI/gripes I have... More

Spacious comfortable quarters in the heart of the most interesting part of town, staff who could not be more cheerful and helpful, and remarkably generous breakfasts with freshly baked bread deliveered to the door.

This review is for the 3 bedroom 1 bath apartment. As others have said this hotel is in a great location to walk all around the city, shops, restaurants and the harbor. The staff are very helpful and welcoming.The 3 bedroom unit is in a building immediately behind the main building. Once you unlock the street level door you do... More

We booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews. The hotel is a collection of older buildings, so each room is different. The location was great- 1 short block from the main shopping/dining street in Reykjavik. The area appears to be in transition but was very safe to walk through. The staff was friendly and amazingly helpful. The room was small... More

This hotel was centrally located, in walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, and attractions in downtown Reykjavik. Our room was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed access to our small (but functional) kitchen. We checked in late at night after a late flight. We had no problem with check in. We had to leave quite early for a flight but... More

We stayed here for three nights. It's an unassuming but beautiful little building. The staff is incredibly helpful and pleasant. The room we had was charming. It is like a little apartment, with a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, stove, and toaster, coffee-maker (or tea) and sink (and dishes and tableware). The beds were comfortable, with a nice Icelandic... More
