Perfectly acceptable hotel

Iceland is an expensive destination. This hotel, at $170 Euros was actually a pretty good value, but it is not fancy. Nice breakfast is included and served in a sunny room. The sleeping rooms are comfortable, but small and basic. Staff is helpful and friendly. It is located on a main shopping street which is mostly pedestrian, so easy access to stores, coffee shops and restaurants. Bus service to the airport was about $15 U.S., again not bad for a pricey destination. There are three steps to the front door, then another four to get to the elevator, so this is a challenge for some. Having said that, Iceland is the outdoors loving, physically active person's dream.

Great hotel in town

While the room wasn't terribly big, the location was fantastic and it was definitely a good deal. The breakfast was near-perfect with a good selection of cereals, breads, fruit, yogurt, etc. I think the only negative I could add was the parking situation, but I didn't mind having to walk a couple of blocks to where I parked the rental car.

Don't come with a heavy suitcase

We wanted a hotel to overnight after visiting the Blue Lagoon. Our flight was 8 AM the following morning. The FlyBus let us out about a block from the hotel because it was too large for the narrow street in front of the hotel. To enter the hotel you must climb a couple of very tall stone steps and once inside climb another short flight of stone steps before reaching an elevator. This may be a problem for someone with a heavy suitcase. We had room 202 which has two twin beds pushed together. The beds are comfortable and clean. The room has only about two feet of space between the foot of the bed and the dresser. We found one outlet to charge our computer. The staff was friendly and provided great service and the room was clean.

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!!!
