I visited Reykjavik with two friends and stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. As other reviews have said, the rooms are pretty small and basic but are kept spotlessly clean and are very warm! The bed was comfortable, and the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water whenever I used it. The TV has a couple of English...

Stayed here with two friends for 4 nights, each of us had our own room. The rooms are small and basic but very clean and very warm. The beds were really comfortable (and I'm fussy when it comes to sleeping) and made up each day. I was also given clean towels every day and the shower was nice and hot...

For a budget hotel this was excellent. Very comfortable room. Good choice for breakfast, other basic meals available if you want them. Well situated, walking distance to city centre or bus stop right outside. Rooms are smallish but perfect as you do not want to spend a lot of time in them. Good bar and lounge facilities downstairs. The staff...

Stayed here for my second time for five nights so had some idea as what to expect and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were all friendly and fielded any questions I had, the rooms aren't the biggest but who goes away to sit in their room but they are really nice and warm. Given the snowy weather this was a...

We just stayed for a long weekend. We were lucky to get an upgrade into one of the bigger rooms. Given the decent price, also the buffet breakfast was fine - certainly enough to eat! Staff was very friendly and helpful! A 20 minutes walk into the pedestrian zone.

The rooms are very small so would recommend getting an upgrade which we did. It takes about 20 minutes to walk into the city along the sea front which we really enjoyed but probably wouldn't be suitable for everyone and could be very cold! Would not recommend eating in the hotel other than breakfast as the food wasn't great. There...

Let this be a warning for people that are looking to book a package through Icelandair. They just bundle flights/hotels/excursions without doing any reasonable thinking if the flight times and hotel check in times are compatible. So be sure your flight arrives at a time which allows you to check in. We made the mistake in thinking that our flight/hotel/excursions...
