We stayed here for a few days this month with friends. The location of this hotel is excellent for exploring the city on foot or bus and is uniquely situated above the settlement museum , one of the oldest sites in Reykjavik. ( we visited the museum and were impressed with its simplicity yet wonderful ability to convey the history of the area )
The rooms were very clean and warm and equipped well with toiletries, tea, coffee etc. which were always topped up daily. All the staff were helpful and friendly . The hotel had a cosmopolitan mix of guests, tourists and corporate and was always comfortable and quiet.
The buffet breakfast had a good choice of hot and cold foods but the art work on the wall which pictured a toilet was a little off putting while we ate! Maybe it was icelandic humour.
The bar was warm and cosy even if prices were a little inflated. For convenience we had a bar meal one evening which was excellent and huge, but we ate out most evenings as there is an abundance of options in the nearby area and it seemed a shame not to explore the fabulous foods of Iceland.
