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.

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.

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.

Good Value In City Center

It's a good value in a great location. The rooms, however, aren't in fantastic shape, and you'd do well to request a room in the newer wing of the hotel. The older rooms (which we were originally placed in, and requested a new room due to the refrigerator not working) are pretty beat up. Cheap wood furniture decorates the older rooms, most of it with dents and scuffs. Decor in the older rooms would be classifed as minimal; you pretty much get a TV (an old one at that), a nightstand and a bed that's very soft. The new wing of the hotel, by contrast, is much nicer, with modern fixtures, a mounted HDTV, new bathrooms, and new plush carpeting. Usually I"m not a fan of carpeting in hotels, but it works here.

Great location for the price

I found this hotel on an online search and booked it based on the reviews, which in turn, were very accurate. We arrived at 6:30am. By the time we had taken the Flybus (35 min bus-ride) form the airport to the hotel, it was only 8am! the friendly staff gave us a room immediatley. At first they wanted to give us two twin beds, but obliged without any ado when we asked for a double. The room was very basic, but clean. The view was of the building across the block with wasteland inbetween. As we didn't spend any great deal of time in the room, and there was only 6 hours of sunlight during our stay, this didn't bother us at all! The hotel was quiet and the continental breakfast served from 6-10am had ample selection and was included in the price. The tourist office is located next door, but the front desk were happy to book the tours we had selected from some of their brochures/leaflets which offered discounts. The hotel is within walking distince from everything downtown. As we were there during winter and during the week, it was very quiet. A short walk in the opposite direction of the town centre towards the docks, provided some excellent local seafood restaurants not typically catering to tourists - very reasonably priced seafood buffets etc.

There are several local seafood restaurants close to the maritime museum on the docks. They don't typically cater to tourists, so the prices are very reasonable. We enjoyed a lunch buffet for around $7. The fish is very fresh too!

Restaraunt Tivoli Cafe was great food and great service, all prices for food were pricey in Iceland. Iceland Excursions was a great company that was based near the hotel
