We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon in Iceland. We did one night here, two nights in the countryside, and a further two nights here.
The hotel is very central - in 3 minutes you can be on the main shopping street, and at the harbour in 5. Easy walking distance to all the coffee shops and restaurants - exactly what you need when its chilly outside!
Rooms are very clean, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good too - full cooked breakfast plus cereals, yoghurts, fruit, toast, pastries etc and really nice fresh smoked salmon!
When the hotel realised we were on our honeymoon they sent up a handwritten card and a plateful of beautiful miniature desserts which was a lovely touch. We also were given a much nicer room when we returned for our 2nd and 3rd nights. We were originally on the 4th floor where the room was fine, but the 2nd floor room was lovely - much cosier and really nicely decorated.
The hotel links directly into a coffee shop/bar which is also really cosy and we found ourselves there each evening after a day exploring.
A really great base for anyone wanting to see Reykjavik and the surrounding areas.
