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...

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...

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...

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...

Bathroom has modern fittings and a huge tub and separate shower. A breakfast tray is available, bread, jam,...

Good location in walking distance of restaurants and attractions. Arne at the reception desk was super nice and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this hotel. (I don't haveore than that to say. This is filler.)

I recommend this hotel highly. Our family stayed in the three bedroom apartment. The apartment was well equipped, included essentials (coffee, milk, juice). The staff were helpful and the hotel is well located in Reykjavik.

This was our first stop in Reykjavik and our apartment catered for everything we needed. We could check in at 3am, we had a nice little kitchen with a coffee machine with complimentery pads as well as a water heater, toaster and a microwave. The bed was comfortable, the bath very nice with occitane amenities. Superb location and very friendly...

My quiet first floor room faced the Rear. This was a spacious apartment type hotel. Small kitchen , pots, pans refrig. The refrig was even stocked with courtesy milk and OJ. The bed was very comfortable - like a feather bed with Icelandic wool spread. Room nice and warm from the geothermal radiators. Walk in shower- be careful this could...

The hotel is well located near the harbor, shopping and restaurants.
