This hotel is perfectly located in the middle of Reykjavik facing the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church. Take the Flybus from the International Airport and tranfer to th hotel. The rooms are a little small with small bathrooms but clean, warm and comfortable. Breakfast is served in the dining room / lobby with a typical breakfast spread of cereals, cheese, coldmeat cuts,...

we stayed at this hotel at the beginning and at the end of our tour. Brilliant location, so central to everything. Added bonus is that it is right in front of the Hallgrimskirkja church. That can also be a negative as it sometimes get noisy in the late night due to its close proximity and visitors visit this church late... More

I booked a tour, and was placed at this hotel. I had read many reviews, and was concerned when they put me in the annex building across the street from the main hotel. It was absolutely fine. I was a single traveler, and the rooms for single travelers are few. All the rooms are small, with European style small bathrooms.... More

Great location only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town and right in front of one of the key sights. Staff friendly and efficient and breakfast buffet perfectly fine. Rooms aren't all the biggest, but as a base for a few days you probably couldn;t do much better for the price.

Our plane landed at 5 AM and we were checked into our apartment on Njasgatta, hungry and looking for breakfast. We stopped in a little place called Fish, but they were serving only coffee. The young girl at the counter said no one served breakfast until 9 AM or so. She was wrong or maybe unhelpful, because just a couple... More

Hotel is located directly in front of the Hallgrímskirkja (a church). Our room was on the main level, which meant the sidewalk was just outside our windows. That equates to a lot of street noise and foot traffic. I would avoid staying on the main level of this hotel. Yes, rooms are small - but we found that to be... More

Positives: Clean - plenty of hot water - adequate breakfast Negatives: No elevator, we had to carry our bags to the fourth floor. Very, very small rooms - difficult for two people to manuver. I have stayed in small rooms that had clever furniture to make them functional. Not here! No drawers, no chair, no hair dryer, no available electric... More

Room was a great location and good enough for an over night stay on our way to Germany. The staff was excellent and accommodating when we arrived on an early morning flight and held our luggage in a locked room while my daughter and I explored the town. We were even offered coffee right away and any juice they still... More

Lovely room, compact with wet room & plenty of storage. Clean & comfortable. Staff very pleasant & very happy to help with anything. You can book tours at reception. Breakfast very nice, not a massive choice but I found it filling. Beautiful view of the church opposite. Central for most amenities.

This hotel is located right across the street from Hallgrimskirka and within walking distance of all of Reykjavik ' best shopping and dining. The lobby and breakfast room are clean and modern/updated. The rooms are dated and a little worn in both the main building and the Annex across the street but if you are just passing through the hotel... More
