If you think about taking a tour to any of the big attractions "Go Travel Iceland" (gti.is) is a very good operator. Good Tours, small groups, no big coach but several Jeeps, experienced and adventurous staff, fair prices, and they pick you up at the hotel.

Icelandic Stay

- the AM buffet was extremely good - the staff was very helpful in booking excursions, flights, and answering questions - the hotel is in a perfect location to access donwtown Reykjavik - the rooms were extremely small, which is OK if you value location and all of the other amenities over room spaciousness - seemed to be dedicated to a younger crowd of tourists - we enjoyed our stay immensely

Smart hotel in an excellent location.

It's a classy boutique type hotel in pretty much the perfect central location near shopping, historical area, eateries, bars, government buildings, museums, parks, etc. You can walk to everything. We even found parking right in front on the street and just had to keep feeding the central meter and keep placing the print out on your dashboard (you don't have to move your car like in the US and the meter lasts for a long long time). The reception area is smallish but nice and has a sitting area with couches and a bar too. The breakfast room is in the back and doesn't get any natural light but it's large and the breakfast is good (particularly the coffee...which was good all over Iceland). The room is a tad small (and very "white") as the beds take up most of the space. The bathroom was amply sized though the tub shower is quite large...you really have to climb in there and although the water pressure is great, it can easily spray half the bathroom. Although the hotel is next to the main drag, we didn't hear the partiers (good windows) on a Thursday night. My only critique is of the front desk staff. They are nice enough but somehow a bit slow and devoid of personality. No worries...I'd gladly stay here again and highly recommend.

Vegamont...what a place. Excellent lunch and dinner menu (huge variety...everything looked great and tasted great) and very popular among 20 somethings. Turns into quite a bar at night.

Great location in an amazing city

Hotel is perfectly situated and offers a funky, modern Icelandic vibe. The standard room is quite small, but clean and functional. The only downside to our stay was we booked the room the night before our arrival to ensure the room would be available for a very early check in. Unfortunately, the room was not ready immediately upon our arrival, but we were still charged. This was frustrating because we were quite tired and we had called the day before to ensure the room would be available. Otherwise, no complaints - pleasant staff, clean room, and quiet hotel.

Stylish in an Ideal Location

Spent four nights here - day trips to wonderful Icelandic nature spots during the day and enjoyed the Reykjavik nightlife at night. The hotel is ideally located on the corner of "main and main" in Downtown Reykjavik (with off street parking nearby) and has a thoughtful, friendly staff. Enjoyed the regionally-inspired decor of the hotel, which provides an energy that is simultaneously soothing and urban in its appeal. My wife and I would have preferred a bit more privacy in the bathroom, which is closed off from the bedroom only be a frosted glass wall. However, this was not enough to detract from our enjoyment of the hotel and for most couples it would probably not be an issue at all. Overall highly recommended!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Pay a little extra to rent a 4x4 vehicle. The Ford Explorer was ideal for a party of four plus luggage and the all wheel drive provided us the confidence we needed to explore with ease - many of the roads are gravel/mud with steep inclines and the weather conditions were constantly changing in mid-April, with hail, snow, rain, and wind the norm (offset by short, but glorious periods of sunlight). Similarly, invest in some rain gear (Gore Tex jacket, pants, gloves and hiking shoes) before you go or in one of the stylish outdoors suppliers in Reykjavik center.

Nice hotel

I stayed here for two nights and liked the hotel. The room was really nice and we enjoyed the hotel breakfast. Our only complaint was that the room was fairly dark and there could have been more lights. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I visit Iceland again.

Good hotel with drawback

Stayed there for three nights. First night my room was on the west side facing a disco which was about 80m away. Didn't get much sleep because of all the noise. Band didn't stop playing until 4:30am. Staff were able to put me in a room on the other side for my remaining time. This was quiet even though the disco was open again. In the process my room was upgraded at no extra charge. Very well located in the center of town. Staff friendly. Comfortable rooms. Breakfast room a bit ordinary.

Great location

The hotel was in the centre of Reykjavik on the main shopping street. Room was modern but might be worth upgrading from standard room. Also across the road from a noisy bar however this did not spoil our stay.

Great central location, but can be noisy

We stayed here for 3 days and it was great. The slighly more expensive rooms are big & comfy and there is a lot of space. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. The free wifi was good, but didn't use the spa. Some friends also stayed here at the same time, but had a problem with noise from the street one evening and got very little sleep, so I think this depends on what room you get. However the location is great (right in the heart of the city) and would definitely stay here again.
