A good choice

There's no staff, but this place is perfect so long as you don't need your hand held. It's essentially an efficiency apartment, with appliances and other essentials. There's no real staff presence, although you can always call them. I arrived very late, but they provided me with the door code into the lobby, and left my room key for me. Checkout consisted of locking my room door and dropping the key in a lockbox. It's less than 5min walk to one of the main shopping streets in Reykjavik, and from there another 5min to be downtown. The major bus services in Iceland offer free dropoffs from Keflavik International straight to your door, but if you feel like a walk, its about 15min from the Reykjavik bus terminal.

Nice experience, in general

Very nice room, GREAT location. The hotel does not have full-time staff on duty. Although this helped keep the price low, it could have been helpful when we needed to confront a family in a neighboring room whose children were CONSTANTLY running around and making noise.

Keep Looking! Not your best option! :(

LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE PHOTOS ON THE WEBSITE! If you don't mind the self-serve concept, and just need basic accomodation, you may be interested, like couch surfing with guest who is never home.Expect NO FRILLS! (toothbrush?SHOWER GEL?SHAMPOO?# Location is a blessing/curse, walking distance to restaurants and shopping, but could hear noise from suite above AND everyone walking by or hanging out outside!For what I've spent #AND CHEAPER#, I've had much better rooms,service, and experiences. :#

Highly Recommended

We were a group of three. It is an apartment, similar to another place we stayed in the city. When we arrived, we phoned on the intercom, and though the "lobby" isn't staffed, the directions were very clear, we got the key and found our way to our apartment. Good times.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a grocery store close by. Cook your own breakfast and prepare your own lunch (and dinner) if you like.

Great location

Great location and great value for Reykjavik. Only issue we had was the duvets provided were very light and there were no extra blankets. You could just leave the heater on but we woke up too hot. No other issues at all. Wifi worked ok and our towels were changed on the second day of our stay.

Check out the Svarta Kaffi just around the corner on the main street. They do awesome soup served in a bowl of bread.

Great location

Very easy to book. No hidden prices or surprises:) Reasonably clean although it was difficult to get rid of cigarette smoke (even though it says the rooms are non-smoking)... The key collection procedure was not very clear but staff on the phone were very helpful. Great location.
