Beautifully appointed suite (called VON) flooded with light, very comfortable bed, kitchen with a Nespresso machine! large screen TV, outdoor space. It is in what is arguably the best location.
It is a short walk to many of the best restaurants, like the Fish Market and the Grille Market. It is just a few blocks to the main shopping street as well.
The Kvosin is opposite a charming church so it is very quiet, that matters when some nights one goes to sleep prior to sunset.
Great desk staff all young and trying very hard to answer all the tourist's questions, which I think can be demanding, I heard one woman ask where her daughter might go to practice soccer....,I especially liked Yogi, short, for his name which was unpronounceable to me in what is rumored to be one of the three (3) hardest languages to learn. The later is no worry as everyone, and I mean everyone speaks English. Yogi, always found us just what we were looking for. The only problem we encountered was with the housekeeping staff, all nice, but, on a couple of occasions our room was not done until quite late in the day....The Kvosin is only open two months so one needs to give a bit of latitude.
It is not inexpensive, but little is in Reykjavic, it is well worth it, so much to see and to do we took road trips almost every day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kvosin is located in the heart of Reykjavík. And by heart, I mean heart, not kidney, spleen or thyroid. In less then three minutes walking distance are cafés, bars, clubs, museums, Harpa (concerts and conventions), the mayor, ducks and politicians working in the Icelandic parliament next door (nevermind).Let's see. I've got Normal rooms, Bigger rooms, Biggest rooms and Larger than life rooms but only one Tiny room. I'm inspired by my experience as a traveller: I want a good bed, I want to cook, I want to watch big TV, I want to bring my friends or kids, I want space and I want fun. So, here you are. ... more less
