We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2017, good location, breakfast was ok as it was free. The staff are lovely and very helpful. the only thing I found was the rooms were very hot and stuffy, we turned off the radiator and slept with the window open and it was better. Free parking here too, right opposite is...

Extra small rooms, extra small beds pushed together. Continental breakfast which was ok but after 3 days got a bit tedious. This hotel was about 30 minutes walk from the centre but there was a no 12 bus that stopped just outside but expensive as is everything in Iceland. The hotel is used by lots of school trips, Lots of...

We stayed here for one night at the beginning & two at the end of our tour. The rooms are extremely small and if your luggage is too big to be pushed under the bed it would certainly impede your exit in an emergency. There is a small TV and our window would not close properly so there was a...

I stayed at this hotel as it was the hotel provided in a group tour. The rooms provided included two beds which smaller than single/twin beds which were pushed together. This room was meant to be shared by two people. The room was so small that you had to walk sideways to get around. The hotel does offer a continental...

Booked this hotel via Groupon, was slightly worried as we didn't know what to expect and was superb. We had a lovely view from our bedroom of the sea and mountains. Twin beds but we're pushed together as double. Staff were helpful and lovely! Places to store luggage when checked out along with a gift shop on site. Shop and...

Deluxe room was nice. Clean towels everyday. We were on the 5th floor at the back so experienced no noise at all. Breakfast was good with a choice of meats, cheese, cereals, Lots of choice of breads/crackers and was even able to get my Gluten Free Bread. There was happy Hour in the Bar 4-6 each night which was popular....

The hotel was booked by my tour company and I was sharing a very small room. Nowhere to put one suitcase, let alone two. It is one of the cheapest hotels in Reykjavik and there were large groups of school children there when I stayed who were very noisy and congregated in the lounge areas on each floor, which encouraged...

Rooms on the small size but very clean and comfortable. Fresh towels daily. Buffet style breakfast was excellent. Plenty of fresh produce. The staff were all helpful. A very good base and for a holiday. Bit of a walk into the town but on a bus route.

I'm trying to think of a single positive thing to say... I'm still thinking...thinking....um, the lift works. Staying in a tiny room. It's only possible to edge my way past the bed sideways.
