    It is a clean and quiet hotel.

    It is not as close to the city center as they are telling. It is exactly 30 mins walking till city center.

  • Single

    good location , ocean view , free wifi , free coffee machine/hot water , heating is very good regulated in room and in bathroom

    water is a bit volcanic taste ; room service only once in five days

    Simple and efficient. A very good base to explore the main places around Reykjavik. The Chocolate cake and brownies are excelent....

    Location is good since it lays nearby the city centre but not that close that your sleep could be harmed in any way by the sparkling nightlife in this city...

    Breakfast is ok and hotel staff as well but not overwhelmingly charming or kind...

    A blond girl at the reception was very very kind, she has suggested many things about the city, offered to us her handmade cakes. The hotel was clean, ten minutes walking from the city center.

  • Group of friends

    Nice breakfast. Quiet rooms. Clean hallways. Free wireless and use of lobby computer. Walked to restaurants and shopping with ease, even late at night (of course it was still light out, being summertime).

    Room was kind of smelly with the windows closed. Bathroom had a ventilation issue and the showerhead was somewhat broken. TV did not work, but we didn't need to watch it.

    The room was very clean and the staff were excellant. The staff arranged a lift from the hotel to the airport as we had an early flight, they also put out some food for us the night before to make sandwiches for breakfast as we would miss it!

  • Group of friends

    The staff were helpful and friendly

    The decor is a litle drab

    Fair price, pleasant staff, walkable location for east Reykjavik (Perlan, mall, etc)

    Bit of a hike from city center, especially if weather is unpleasant.

  • Group of friends

    We absolutely loved it! We have never felt so comfortable and welcome. They are always checking up on you and making sure you have everything you need. There's a lovely restaurant around the corner and it was about a 15 min walk to the city. We felt like part of the family they really went that extra mile. Thank you for a great memorable stay in Reykjavik :)

    This was a nice place to stay. The staff was excellent. The breakfasts were very good and tasty. If I get back to Reykjavik soon, I will most definitely stay there.

  • Family with children

    Our room, familyroom with an upper etage for our teens, were perfect It is a walking distance to " down - town " from the hotel but still it is situated near the mainroads = it is easy to go on roadtrips with your rental car ( and there is a parkingarea, free for guests, just in front off the hotel ). Good value if you just need a place sleep!

    Breakfast ! It was nothing wrong with it but it was a little bit to basic to be in a 3-star hotel.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Very clean, breakfast included, helpful staff, internet in the lounge

    Long walk to city centre, restaurants. Ok if you have a car. More expensive than similar quality hotels

    A pleasant enough hotel, with very friendly staff.

    It seems a bit run down, and room service doesn't come every day.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    It is a modern clean hotel with good levels of comfort and facilities - 15 minute walk into the centre of Reykjavik - we had a room with a mezzanine which would sleep 5 - for three of us - free tea and coffee and cakes available in the dining area 24 hours a day - staff were very helpful and made sandwiches for us to take for breakfast for our early start to catch the plane!! Good value base to explore the city. Joe And Angela

    Tv was a bit old and didn't work very well
