Wonderful stay at this inn. I'd rate the employees 5 star and the inn 4 star. We arrived there at 7:30am, and knew our room would not be ready until later. Fellow working at reception stored our bags for us, and at his suggestion offered us a nearby place to grab coffee and a danish before our tour of glacial hiking started.
When we arrived back that evening, he had put our bags in our room, and asked if we'd like help finding a place for dinner. We had heard about the great mountain lamb so asked for tips there. He gave us a map with directions to a place easy to walk to. And that served great lamb. Finally, the night before we left he said "I noticed you took a cab from the airport (very expensive). Would you like to save some $ by taking the bus to the aiport. We said yes and he reserved seats on the bus (bus was 1/10th cost of cab and much more comfortable). As we left we tried to tip the employee who had been so helpful and he refused. Said he was just doing his job. We thank him for making our stay in Iceland so much better.
Room was great. Nits--everyone who has reviewed this place said the next day's breakfast was in the fridge the night before. Not us. Also, crack in one window--made it drafty.
Room-great size. Nice to have full kitchen there. Everything was in great shape. Big room, nice bathroom. Great location to everything in downtown Reykjavik. Very small "boutique" hotel. Think they only have 15 rooms. Not sure how they make money but would stay there again. Also have a laptop for email/web check in.
