The hotel has an excellent location in the center of Reykjavik and is very conveniently located close to the shops and restaurants. It makes for an easy pick up point for tourist buses and sightseeing tours. Yes, the hotel is very basic but it does have everything you need - clean bed, hot shower, TV. Considering the general prices in...

Getting into the hotel took a while, we arrived at the pre-determined time. Pushed the button multiple times, no response. Finally called and heard someone answer, they could clearly hear us in the lobby but waited til we called (on our international plan, thanks) before coming down. Got in the room, it was fine until we went into the bathroom....

Very basic and very well located in the city center. Poor and expensive breakfast. Don't take it. You'd better go for a coffee nearby. I wouldn't recommend this hotel unless you don't find another alternative as it was in my case.

This is a very basic hotel. Even if you may not like budget hotels you are almost forced to book a budget hotel in iceland as it is a very expensive country. This hotel has a very small elevator that holds you and your suitcase only. Its very rickety and felt a bit unsafe. The hotel had a bit of...

I can't possibly say this strong enough. This is an awful place to stay. Perhaps if you're 18, don't mind bad service, horrible hotel rooms, noise and broken beds then fine. No one was there when we turned up even though we had said what time we were coming. We waited for 30 minutes, called the phone, searched the hotel,...

There's a reason why the pricing on this hotel is very low-- it's a very basic hotel. This worked out for my group as we were out and about for most of the days anyways and just needed a room to sleep and shower. We arrived early and the front desk was able to get us our rooms early. Upon...

We have just come back from staying here for 4 nights. Reading all the reviews from previous people I was a little anxious on what to expect. However I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel is basic (isn't no Hilton) but it is all you need for lapping up the sights of Iceland. We stayed with an infant too and they...

like 5 minutes walking to the center, very basic, we had tv, didnt have breakfast included but for the price you can get the same outside. Iceland is very expensive and this hotel was a bargain so couldnt be happier. Clean and warm room.

Firstly, the water in the bathroom is spring water and is quite smelly which makes the whole room smell. We noticed that room service opened the bedroom window everyday to attempt to air out the room, however in the middle of March when there's snow on the ground the last thing you want to come back to is a freezing...

A friend and I had a reservation for a week and we only stayed 1 night. When we arrived there was no one at the reception. We waited for 20-30 minutes until the receptionist opened the door. We got a tiny room (supposed to be a double room), dirty pillows and an old TV. The worse part was the humidity...
