Good Value for money hotel

Our room was clean and comfortable. However, the view from our window has to be the worst view we've every had....a brick wall! The breakfast was excellent...so much choice! Very impressive. It was great to have the happy hour at the bar...very much appreciated. Unfortunate that there are no rooms allowing smoking. The early bird breakfast was a little minimal. Just croissants, hot drink and orange. Would be nice to have a little jam to go with the croissant and some plates?! The location was absolutely excellent and, therefore, we think the hotel was very good value for money.

The restaurant MAR was excellent, especially the seafood pan! And they don't serve whale (come and meet us not eat us!). Definitely recommend this place to eat at the harbour.

Great Location

The hotel staff was great and the location was perfect. I would recommend getting a room in the newer part of the hotel, hose rooms are a little nicer.

Room built for hobbits

I wanted to check in early, but my room was not ready. Finally, they let me check in 50 minutes early. Got into the room and discovered it was like someone's attic addition. I had a twin bed, but the ceiling was only full height on one side of the room as it slanted down on the other side to about 3 feet from the floor. The only place that I could stand was on one side of the room and in the two dormers, which, lucky for me was in the shower, toilet, and desk. Tiny room and if youre over 4 foot tall, you will not stand up much. Considering the $300/day cost I felt i should have been able to stand up everywhere. The location is great and central to everything, but the room was on a courtyard that could be very loud, especially on culture night. Great wifi, staff helpful. I will not stay here again, but would opt instead for a Center hotel away from the noise and with full sized rooms.

Good Location at a Good Price

This hotel is centrally located and was a very good deal. A parking garage is just one block away. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Our only complaint is that the shower was a little bit tight.

Excellent location and value for money

Everyone says how expensive it is to stay in Reykjavit. Well that might be the case but we found this hotel excellent value for money. The hotel was a little shabby in places or partly (badly!) renovated, but ignore that. It was clean; the staff were friendly and welcoming; the location was perfect; and plenty to eat for breakfast (try the lovely walnut bread!). I'd stay in this hotel again if I was fortunate enough to return to Reykjavit. If you are thinking of going to Iceland, don't think - do! It was in my top 10 of holidays.

Take advantage of Happy Hour in the bars as alcohol is quite expensive. Oh and don't forget your thermals!

Nice place and staff

The staff was nice and were very accommodating to our requests. The location was perfect and you can walk to many interesting sites. The only downside was the other guest who were loud and rude late at night.

If you're on foot, it doesn't get much better

Like many of our vacations, we chose not to rent a car and see the city and surroundings on foot or bus. The location on the city center square can't be beat. Restaurants and shops are everywhere, range from fast food to elegant. Note that nothing in Reykjavik is cheap, but this was very reasonable. Wonderfully friendly English speaking staff and a _very_ good included breakfast buffet with everything from herring to bacon and muesli through veggies. The room wasn't large or fancy and had some pealing paint (not a lot), but felt clean and cozy. Natural hot spring water for the showers was a unique, but not unpleasant experience. Do expect the classic "rotten eggs" sulfur smell of a hot spring, but we didn't find it objectionable and you never ran out!. Sandwich place in the plaza is great for late night munchies. "Tapas" restaurant just around the corner is a very good somewhat trendy place. Price was also quite good, so would definitely use this hotel again.

It could be much better

Arrive at cold room, remote control not working, in bathroom there is no heating,light above the bed not working, lobby very small, always full of people and very noisy, dinning area very poor, like a shelter for homeless people. Only thing which could save this hotel is friendly staff.
