“Simply excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2007

You'd never believe this is a converted sweet (candy) factory!
The street is a dead-end so almost zero traffic noise. The reception was friendly and helpful. Everything in the first review ((Lincoln, UK) is correct. I stayed twice: once with a spacious shower room and once with a tiny one; but this is a guesthouse, not a 5-star hotel! I and my two companions were all delighted with the place and would aim for it again. This is a very small city so nothing is more than about a ten-minute walk (15-minue stroll) away.
Go soon before the rising 23-story building destroys the fine sea views.

  • Liked — the space , the cleanliness and the comfort
  • Disliked — small shower room once; top (4 US; 3 UK) floor: no lift. But these are minor matters to me.

Yes you can stay in Reykjavik in a large, very large modern room for
under £100 night!.

A room with large double bed, (well 2 singles pushed together), large settee, two armchairs, coffee table, walk in shower and with 4 windows facing the sea!

Breakfast is very basic, just a tray left outside your room, but hey, you can't have everything and there is a modern coffee making machine provided with the room, with teas and milk.

We moved here after being lumbered with The Cabin Hotel by Icelandair. The Cabin's rooms are so small you could fit 4 of them in this White Swan Room. We thus had to pay twice, as to date Icelandair are not interested in helping us out.

Pleaseask/ email if you need any more info
