We were on our honeymoon and stayed in a larger, flat-style room. It was very stylish and had a kitchenette, which was a nice touch. We loved our room and the staff were incredibly helpful. Two things to note: as it's summer in Iceland, it is light outside for virtually 24 hours. Shutting the blinds helps, but our room had a large illuminated exit sign for some reason. This is likely required in larger rooms, so not a knock on the hotel at all, but if you're traveling in Iceland, you'll want to bring an eye mask. Second, breakfast is not included in the price of the room. For me, this was not a huge turn off.

There are a lot of good things to say about Kvosin, the location is very central, the rooms are extremely clean, but the stand out thing about Kvosin are the staff. From the check-in to the check-out, they were all amazing day and night. Friendly, helpful and always went the extra mile. We booked to stay with them again on our return to Reykjavik.

We stayed at this small very comfortable hotel in the middle of downtown Reykjavik. The location, historical character, helpfulness of staff, and room facilities are all reasons why we want to come back here even if the hotel doesn't have the full range of facilities that a larger hotel chain might have. Highly recommended.

Charming, lots of personal touches, lovely staff, the best size suite I’ve stayed in with quirky cool thoughtful decor and great facilities. Would wholeheartedly recommend. No in-house food but self catering or ordering in possible. Masks and hand sanitiser offered.

Great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, rooms were very modern and clean. The kitchen area was so handy to have with young children that wake up super early for breakfast. The hotel is in a great location, only 2 minute walk to the town centre and right near bus stop 1 for the tours. Gina and Chantel were extremely welcoming, happy to help with tours and anything else you may need. Fantastic little relaxed bar downstairs with tea's/coffee's given to any guests staying in the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to any couples/family's staying in Reykjavik.
