3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just returned from 3 nights here , very very quiet , warm rooms and extremely comfy beds , needed after each day of sight seeing , kettle and fridge , English TV, the staff are extremely helpful, ask anything and they help , for a budget hotel it's fabulous

The hotel is in a quiet area or town. It is about a 50 min walk to the main part of town, but there are several places to eat within a few hundred metres. Service was good, staff were helpful and breakfast was good enough.

Stayed for three nights with my partner. A little out of the way from the centre (20 minute walk) but is a great hotel with wonderful staff, a very clean hotel and has everything you need. 100% would stay here again and recommend anyone who just wants a simple hotel.

Myself and my boyfriend spent 5 night here. Read the reviews and was a little sceptical but shouldnt have been. This hotel was great as all of the excursions pick u up and drop you off at this hotel. A lot of them dont! The reception staff couldnt do more to help they really go out their way for you. We were only on floor 1 and thankfull as we had 4 heavy bags and unfortunately there's no lift. A little downfall but not major. Rooms are clean beds are comfy and you get the added bonus of a kitchenette (micro, fridge & hobs) towels and bathroom stocked every day. If your expecting the ritz its not but we are not snobs in anyway. Location is great, 5 mins away is a bus stop and any bus takes you into town centre which again is 5 mins drive 440k pp. 25 mins walk is a 24h supermarket Please dont listen when people exaggerate about prices here. We found lovely little places to eat drink for an average of 30-40£ for a meal.

Not in the centre, but only 5 mins walk to nearest bust stop and a 10 min ride into the centre ( buy bus tickets via your phone on the superb - in English - ticket app ) looked a bit drab on the outside , but pleasantly surprised when In the room. So clean and comfortable, breakfast is buffet style but plentiful. Staff very helpful and friendly. All the tours pick you up from outside the door. Would book again any time in preference to a much more expensive hotel in the centre any day!

This 1 seemed good value, but some of the reports made it a bit of a risk, but glad we did. Its big downside is its location, it is well out of the city centre, but it is walking distance (if ok walking) but buses stop nearby if wanted. Our room was in a seperate building, 20 second walk, so breakfast was a bit awkward but no major issue. Very friendly and helpful staff, helped us with arrangements for our booked tours and their pick up details. Good range of breakfast food to suit most tastes. Would happily stay here again.

Although we feel that we were oversold a few aspects of the hotel (walking distance to centre of Reykjavik being the main one) we would 100% stay here again. As a couple, the single beds instead of double bed (booking mistake on our part!) weren't initially welcome but as soon as we got into the beds nothing mattered - they were COMFY! The cooking facilities in the room were great as food there is very expensive and the receptionist at check-in had some great recommendations for us - free parking in town, a bakery near by and a supermarket to go to. Its a 10 min drive to town and a super friendly hotel. Also, given most people hire cars to visit the city, the free parking outside the hotel is a great bonus. The service is super relaxed and friendly so if you're looking for 'hotel level' service that its not the one for you. For example, check out was a crossing on the stairs with the receptionist on duty, him asking our room number and saying 'cool, bye!'. Its relaxed and provides just what you need for a trip to Iceland. Give it a try!

The room was a good size. The staff were friendly and helpful. We appreciated the tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the mini fridge was useful. The shower could have been cleaner but overall it was a good base and good value for money.

The hotel was warm and comfy , English TV , kettle tea and coffee, could have been a few more than 2 lol As a base foe exploring Iceland it was ideal and I would use it again . Staff were friendly and helpful . Tip , run the shower for a couple mins to ease the sulphur smell , totally harmless but wiffy lol .

Stayed for 5 nights in a twin room. In the room was a tv with English television channels, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The kettle only plugged in near the door whilst proper on a chair but it was warm and the beds not too bad. Downsides: *Not very clean, there was leaves in the room and things under the beds, plus I don't think they cleaned the room once apart from empty the bin and stock up tea and toilet paper. *Heating was from a radiator and sometimes it was too cold, no extra blankets provided. *No spoons or cutlery in the room. So if you want it (which I did) you have to ask to borrow it from reception. * No Lift, be prepared to carry your case up 2 flights of stairs. Positives *Good Location *Friendly, helpful staff. * bus stops 15 mins walk. *Post office 5 mins walk. *Iceland or halgkup supermarket 20mins walk
