“Comfortable budget option with friendly service”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

In a city of expensive hotels, this is not an exception but looking at the rates, it was one of the most reasonable. We were hesitant because of the shared bathroom but it turned out to be just fine. The hotel rooms are on the 4th floor of a building block (hence the name). Our room was a very good size with comfortable beds. A washbasin was also in the room. The TV had a decent selection of English channels.

The hotel is on a main road, and if you sleep with windows open you will get some traffic and street noise from the locals returning from their parties at dawn on weekends. But we did not have much trouble sleeping through that.

As I said, the main compromise was the shared bath, but it was always clean and never had to wait to use it. It was only a couple of doors down the corridor.

Breakfast was also good, served at the ground floor cafe. They can take care of early departures etc.

The hotel is located next to the main shopping street which has lots of restaurants and tourist shops so it is convenient. You can walk everywhere of interest from here without needing public transport. Staff at reception was nice and helpful.

I loved the fact that the hotel was themed. I know that's not for everyone, but I found the zebra theme to be fun and not overdone. Great location right downtown, and very reasonable priced. The breakfast at the little attached cafe was great too.

...except the door to our room would rattle very loudly whenever someone come through the stree level door. This happened every time someone came in or left the hotel and was a bit annoying.

Other than that our stay was fine. Friendly staff, clean and spacious room and in a good location.

The breakfast buffet was great, however, the dishes could have been washed a bit better. I grabbed 2 or 3 plates and coffee cups before I found one that I'd actually want to use.

This is a decent hotel, reasonably priced and in a good location that we would recommend.

I stayed for 4 nights in August 2013. The location is excellent, there is a bus terminal just behind and one end of the main tourist street across the road. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was very good and had a lot of variety. Best of all, it was served to 10.30am so you could get up early and go to the Sundhöllin pool, which is less than a 5 minute walk, for a few hours and be back for breakfast. The rooms were fine, but there was a shared bathroom. There was some noise from traffic but not very bad.

We stayed in one of their 1 bedroom apartments, and didn't have a great experience. I'll frame my review as pros and cons and let the reader decide for themselves whether they should stay here or not.

Pros:
- Friendly staff.
- Spacious apartment with a comfortable bed.

Cons:
- No parking, it took a few tries to find the nearby lot where there was some available parking and we had to walk a fair distance with our luggage since there wasn't anywhere to drop it off.
- No working WiFi, despite it being advertised. After a few unsuccessful tries to access networks (with consultation with the front desk between each attempt, having to go physically talk to them since there is no phone in the apartment that can access the front desk) they finally gave us a dongle for mobile broadband access.
- The shower did not drain properly, so that if we took a shower of any reasonable duration the bottom would fill up and overflow. I was in town to run the Reykjavik Marathon so it was a real bummer to not have a long hot shower after the rainy and cold race.
- The kitchen was very poorly equipped, luckily we hadn't planned on cooking anything ourselves because it would not have been possible given how little there was provided in the way of kitchen implements.
