Too expensive for what you got. We were in the annex and our room consisted of 2 twin beds, 2 hard chairs, a desk and a very small tv. No coffee maker, no refrig, no safe, extremely small closet with some hanging shelves and that was it. The curtains did not fully cover the windows, might as well not had... More

Fantastic hotel in the best location and such a fantastic view from our room of the Hallgrimskirkja church. All transfers arrived like clockwork despite being booked independently. Lovely friendly feel and lots of independent travelers were making plans together. My favourite bit apart from the location and view was the waffle press at breakfast.

It was easy to walk to most attractions and restaurants from the hotel. The hotel itself is in need of a bit of updating and the breakfast area is too cramped. I was disappointed to see instant coffee going into the coffee machine at breakfast and there was no orange juice, just orange squash. My room was very small and... More

Wonderful, helpful staff, great breakfast, free coffee served all day, awesome location. Rooms are a little small, the ones on the back with balcony are better. Great place to start and end our adventure.

Clean tidy hotel with very helpful staff which made our stay brilliant. After completing a 6 day walk our return to the hotel was welcoming and again very comfortable. Breakfast was filling, the courtyard was comfortable and sunny. Great location for the main shopping streets. Thankyou

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip around the Ring Road. Loved it!!! It was even in an episode of the Simpsons, so you can't beat that. Both nights we had a view of the Hallgrimskirkja from our rooms, and both nights are rooms were very different, which surprised me. Staff was great, so friendly and... More

We stayed here with a group of friends initially for 3 night and then one night after driving around the island, as the accommodation was pre-booked.We had 2 double rooms and three single rooms. The bathrooms smelt, the sheets were well past their use by dates. All of our group thought their rooms were inferior and dirty. Rooms were not... More

This is a walk up no elevator, top floor rooms are tiny, ceiling is slanted, bathroom has an 8" step up/down, heating doesn't turn off and pipes make noise all night! Other than that it in a good location, but don't stay here.

this hotel is directly across the street from Hallgrímskirkja and a great location for exploring old Reykavik. The room was small but clean, and we had a tiny balcony that overlooked a small courtyard. The staff was very helpful and the room included breakfast the next morning. The bed wasn't very large and wasn't the most comfortable (but not bad)... More
