“Quanit little Hotel”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night during a road trip from Reykjavik. The hotel was right on the water and the man at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. He told us places to stop and see on our drive. The room was very large and clean but you could tell it was old. Also, its right in front of the water so we had a nice view of the marina. We arrived in the late afternoon and drove around the town, in which there was nothing to do. Nothing was also open so we were stuck waiting in the hotel room (which had one tv channel) till 6pm when the hotel restaurant opened. When 6 pm finally came we went to the restaurant for dinner. The food was decently priced and was really good! It was our cheapest meal out in Iceland. They also gave us free appetizers and dessert which was also amazing! Since there was really nothing else to do we went back to the room after dinner and had an early night. The next morning we also received breakfast which was included in the price of the hotel. The hotel was a great deal and perfect for quick stop for just a night.

This is a limited service hotel in that the front desk is only open limited hours. The rooms are basic, but clean. Breakfast is quite comprehensive. Wi-fi was only available in the lobby. My strongest recommendation is to not eat at the restaurant across the street. That was the worst meal we had in Iceland!

and, could have hosted a party there.It had a kitchenette, dinning table and chairs, and a small seating area in addition to the sleeping area. However, you had to lug your luggage upstairs yourself, and being over 60, it wasn't the experience I had hoped for. I stayed in the section across the street from the main hotel, and had an uninspiring view of "Main" street. Dinner was very good. Breakfast you had to fend off the hordes as it was a small section that was emptied out fairly quickly, with no replenishment that I could see or eat for that matter.

+ Very good location for exploring nearby National Park
+ Great choice for breakfast buffet
+ Large rooms (in a building over the road from the main building)

but:

- Staff - it's ok, but we didn't really feel like we were welcome there
- Lack of wi-fi

The hotel was average. The double room studio was basic but spacious but didn´t include fridge or stove like we had promised when we booked the room (might have been also bookingsites mistake). Shower curtain hadn´t been washed for ages, it was all brown at the lower part.

The town is very lovely. There is a beautifull waterfall behind the houses and a lovely small river.

Room Tip: Choose a double room studio if you need more space

The hotel must have undergone a renovation as it was much better than the comments on here. We were apprehensive about our stay, as it is the only hotel in town, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room, in the block over the road, was large, fantastic shower and quiet. Breakfast was continental in a lovely looking room. The restaurant was no open, but as guests we had a 20% discount at the restaurant next door, which was good. Friendly staff...only downside...not wireless....but I was offered a dongle!

The place was clean but there were loose tiles in the room (no carpet). The shower was
interesting, you used a squeegee to scrape off the excess water from the shower. One
t.v. station. The breakfast was great, a real nice selection. It was one hundred twenty dollars
and they were not clear on the cost as we checked in (I blame myself) . I don't think it's a
very good value but we were tired. Perhaps there are bed and breakfasts around that would
be better. Thanks for reading
