First of all, the location of this Hotel can't have been better. in the absolutely heard of the old city, with Restaurants, Cafes, Bars, Supermarkets and Parks all within a few minutes of stepping out of the front door. the GM, Mr. Petursson was an absolute gem as far as kindness and helpfulness is concerned and in all my travels I have never come across such a high level of service and attention to ensure that all needs were met immediately and without question. In fact I was on a couple of occasions quite embarrassed at his generosity to my needs. I was very happy staying there and would consider no other establishment on my next visit which is a definite starter. The only downside, which really did not matter too much was the lack of a coffee shop or cafe, as no other food or snack was available after breakfast was over at 1030 hrs. But this was a very minor inconvenience considering the fact there were about 6 other outlets nearby offering a very wide range of food and drink. Another plus being the 5-7 mins. stroll to the Old Harbour, where one could choose from a range of superb Seafood Restaurants and lots of services such as Bird watching, Whale Watching, Fishing, etc. etc. In the opposite direction a short stroll takes one into the heart of the shopping and Bistro district in LAUGAVEGUR, offering a huge range of Icelandic foods, Handicrafts, tours, clothes and candies, etc.
