“Lovely hotel, great staff, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

I checked Trip advisor before booking this hotel and kind of 'went with the flow' I was so pleased we did. The hotel was great, It seemed new, all very clean and tidy. The location was excellent. I had been a bit worried that we were going to be in the middle of nowhere (which most of the drops seemed to be!) but it is not even 5 mins to the main street where all the shopping and restaurants are, and about 15 mins to the harbour.
The staff on reception were great, they gave us great recommendations for food, booked the restaurants, booked trips for us too. We were impressed.
The breakfast was a continental, with a good selection.

We had a 4 night stay here. Our room was spotlessly clean, with good views over the rooftops to the harbour and mountains. Staff in reception were very knowledgeable and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was a cold buffet with a plentiful selection of breads,meats and cheeses,plus fresh fruit and condiments although if you like a good cup of tea in the morning, take a few teabags with you! We were on the 6th floor and had no trouble with noise. It took us about 10 minutes to walk down town from the hotel. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, but I understand they are available if you upgrade. I don't know how much this would cost. We had a 4am start back to the airport and the breakfast room was set up with a limited selection prior to departure, which was very welcome. All in all a very enjoyable stay where we felt welcomed and valued. We would definitely use this hotel again.

Had a great stay at the hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Free wi-fi only in breakfast room in lower level and lobby area. Downstairs wi-fi was pretty weak. The rooms were clean, modern and not too cramped, there was even room for a desk. The outside wall is full of windows, which made the room seem larger but also let in sound at night. Great location, a couple blocks off the main shopping street. Blow dyer, shampoo and conditioner are provided.

Beds must be pretty good because we slept for 12 hours after being up for 30 hours and my back didn't hurt. Would definitely stay here again, good value for the price.

This is a good modern hotel. We were upgraded for free as the hotel was fully booked by the time we arrived. In all spent 4 nights there. It is about 20 min walk from the harbour which takes you along the main shopping street. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The breakfast buffet was reasonable and had a range of foodstuffs available.

At the end of our week-long whale watching trip to Iceland in February 2013 we stayed for just one night in this budget hotel prior to our transfer to Keflavik Airport.

The hotel is very new and our room on the Ground Floor (Rm.209) was situated at the rear of the hotel and overlooked the lower end of Reykjavik (a somewhat 'seedier' part of town) with low cost backpackers hotels and hostels.

Our room had no openable windows so it felt a little hermetically sealed (if you get my drift ?).

We asked for an alternative room and we were offered the room directly opposite. This room had 2 openable windows but overlooking a rather noisy student apartment building and the 'common' room. After some time, the students quitened down so we did achieve some quality sleep.

There was no tea or coffee making facilities in the room which was a disappointment.

Beds were comfortable and the ensuite shower was smart and functional. There was no chairs in the room either.

So, definitely a crash pad !

Room Tip: If you like 'fresh' air watch out for rooms that have sealed windows.

This is classed as a three star hotel and it lives up to this. We upgraded our room which was very reasonable to do. If you do not have one of the upgraded rooms it is worth noting that you do not get tea / coffee making facilities in your room! The breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of choice but no hot food other than toast but plenty of other choice. The hotel was clean, beds comfortable and the staff very efficient and friendly. The location is very good and a 10 minute walk to the main shopping street with plenty of restaurants. The only "con" in this hotel is the Happy Hour - do not be fooled. Normall price for two large beers 1900Kr (about £10), happy hour price is 1000Kr (about £5.50) for two SMALL beers therefore cheaper to buy outside of the happy hour. All in all a wet but enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Top floors 5th or 6th some with sea view. These rooms have tea / coffee making facilities the cheape...

The first thing to say about this hotel is how friendly the staff are. They couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming.
Based at one end of the main shopping street the hotel is very conveniently located without being in a noisy part of town. To get to the other end of the shopping street where the bars and restaurants are is a 1.5Km easy walk even for someone like me that was hobbling with knee problems, or a 1,600 Krona (£8) taxi ride.
The hotel itself is modern but relatively basic but I don't think many people go to Iceland to sit around a hotel all day. The beds are nice and firm without being hard, there is a good TV, small fridge and excellent shower room. They only do breakfast which is a standard but very good cold buffet. For other meals you need to find a restaurant. On our 3 night long weekend we tried the Argentina Steakhouse, The Fish Market and the Fish Company all of which I could recommend and will post separate reviews.
Drinks in the bar are reasonable (compared to Reykjavik prices not UK prices) and happy hour - 6pm to 8pm - where 2 beers are 1,000 Krona (£5) is extended to 10pm whenever the Northern Lights tour is cancelled.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room right on the street and next to reception but it was still reasonably qui...
