“Great hotel in central Reykjavik”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Spent 12 nights here in early June 2013 together with my sister. It is a very nice hotel in a perfect location, just around the corner from Reykjavik main street.
The rooms are modern and stylishly decorated. We had a mini suite which was perfect with the extra space.
The hotel bar is a very nice place to relax before going out to dinner, or just to rest tired feet after a long day of walking.
Staff is very service minded and friendly, particularly in the bar.
Breakfast was good, had everything we needed

Room Tip: Our room was facing the back, and it was nice and quiet, even if we of course did hear the night lif...

This hotel was superb in every way, the location is perfect and the interior is stunning. The staff were very helpful and always available and on hand to answer questions. I am already planning to come back in the future.

Room Tip: Try and get a room higher up.

We chose this hotel for its central location, which worked out perfectly for sightseeing and restaurants, we were not disappointed. We arrived after an overnight flight from Denver , to be welcomed by an awesome Icelandic breakfast, and our room being readied ( At 8am!!) the daytime receptionist was extremely helpful, no request was too much trouble , a delight. Likewise the evening Englisman at rception was very pleasant, when my husband left his jacket, with camera inside, the night before an early flight, they retrieved his jacket and mailed it to a forwarding address in Scotland. Exceptional service, one of the best hotels we have experienced in our travels. Highly recommended. BTW, the rooms were very comfortable and chic too.

Reception staff were helpful, and our room was excellent. We were travelling with an 11 month old, and the hotel even set up a cot with pillows, towels and a quilt for her!(be aware though, we were charged 10 euros a day for the cot).
Parking was easy on the street, and the hotel is so close to everything there was no need to worry about taxis or buses. We even walked to the thermal beach on the other side of the domestic airport!
The entrance isn't really pram or wheelchair friendly- there is a lift but the actual entrance outside could be improved.
Our junior suite was excellent, and I would definitely pay the extra again for this. Our room had a really long sofa, lots of storage in two large cupboards and a proper bathroom with tub (not next to the bed). I'd read with humour previous reviews about the frosted glass bathrooms, but you only really see shadows. Anyway, we're a married couple and I imagine most couples will have seen 'everything' before so I fail to comprehend how that would deter them.
Breakfast was awesome, it was well stocked though we were there at 7am each of our 5 mornings (our daughter decided 6am was the time to be up every day). We were even given a 415am early morning croissant and coffee breakfast before our bus to the airport.
The staff are amazing- the cleaning staff were fantastic with our daughter everytime they saw her. The reception staff happily sorted out bus transfers and so on, so if in doubt about activities, just ask!
I'd certainly stay here again, but I do think couples with infants are a rarity!!

Room Tip: Junior Suites are great- views are a bit rubbish but thats not why we were there.

Shortly after arriving we we're told we were being "upgraded" to a different hotel due to over booking.
And we were not disappointed. They arranged a complementary taxi to take us to the other hotel. Which was 4* and our previous one was 3*.

They are very modern and excellently clean. Staff couldn't do more to help.
We checked in and our room was available 4 hours prior to actual check in time.

The rooms are very modern with the bathroom being a glass room inside your bedroom. Giving the space maximum light and openness.

Beds are comfy and very clean!
There is a minibar, tea and coffee, towels, safe , hair dryer and usual shampoos.

We couldn't be more delighted that we were upgraded! Smack bang in the centre of the main shopping street. Yet slightly off to avoid any noise on the weekend.

Would highly recommend these hotels to anyone staying here.
Breakfast is served from 7am-10am and is a delicate selection of cereals, fruits and pastries. As well as a small hot selection of eggs, sausage, bacon and potatoes.

Truly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here twice on two different occasion on our weeks holiday due to our friend getting married in budir , both stays were excellent and the rooms we had were lovely , we enjoyed the brekfast which was plentiful on choices so everyone was happy , the lady who worked on the reception was very very friendly and made us feel very welcome , the bar was very relaxed area to catch up with our group and we made the most of the beer on happy hour , we had a mini bus and found parking very easy outside of the hotel and the charges were very reasonable overall we would recommend this hotel as a lovely place to stay and an ideal location for the centre of town

This was a lovely hotel with everything I could hope for in a stopover weekend :) The staff were very friendly, genuine and helpful. I enjoyed happy hour with local beer and a casual atmosphere where I made friends and went out on the town thanks to!

Room Tip: One end of the hotel is less noisy than the other because of bars up the one street. Don't eat...
