Good central hotel with no frills

The hotel was really central and couldn't be better location wise although photos didn't totally reflect the hotel. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms clean if basic.

5 Days in Iceland

As the name suggests, the location is right at the heart of the city center, very convenient. The hotel staff are very friendly and happy to answer all sorts of travel related questions. However, the cleanliness of the room is just acceptable especially the bedding and pillow. The included breakfast buffet is just the standard set-up, nothing fancy but it gets the job done.

Location great, hotel ok

The hotel was in a great location, right next to shops and downtown area. However, the rooms were small and the entrance is really at the side (as opposed to what you see in the picture (by the pharmacy). The rooms are also small, though breakfast was good.

Prime Location

I am 32, single, love to go out. This was a prime location for me to go shopping, go to restaurants, bars, etc. It is PRIME location in downtown Reyk and a great price. Nothing fancy, not dingy. Just perfect if you would rather spend your money on food, experience, etc. I stayed at other hotels this price and this one was much better. TIP: I stayed at 5 star hotels this trip as well, and no matter how nice your hotel, no matter what you pay, if you are in downtown Reykjavik, expect to hear clubs or even fireworks until 5 am on weekends. Even if you are on the 5th floor. THIS IS A PARTY TOWN ON WEEKENDS! One other tip: skip the breakfast at this hotel and go to a nearby restaurant. Reykjavik has excellent pastries, etc... but this hotel lacked anything to appetizing, even without the hangover. There are too many good foods to try here. SAVOR IT!

Heart of downtown reykjavik

excellent location in the heart of downtown reykjavik... Cheap, clean, nothing to fancy but not dingy... You're on the strip with all the bars, restaurants and shops. If you'de like to go out at night, spend your money on food etc, but not sacrifice being in a gross hotel this is for you. Staff is helpful. I'm curious for the breakfast... All the food has been amazing though, so I'm sure I'll be pleased. I love you iceland!!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk over to the store called "Bonus," items in the market are a better price.

Excellent location

Very comfortable rooms and very clean. Perfect location right in the centre of shops and restuarants and bars and walkable to harbour and the wonderful church with a lift to views over all of Reykjavik. Thoroughly recommend this hotel and its "sister" hotel, Centre Hotel, Isafold where you get 2 0% off in the restaurant and the staff were lovely and went out of their way to be helpful and friendly.
