Hotel was great! Amazing location - right next to the Hallgrimskirkja and a five minute walk from the sun voyager. Staff were extemely friendly and helpful - early breakfast was no problem and they also phoned all the companies we booked tours with to confirm if the tours were on. No kettle in the room but can get boiling water...

This hotel is in a good location. A short downhill walk into town and all that Reykjavik offers. The reception area is small so it was abit squeezed when the minibus party was dropped off but we didn't have to wait too long. Staff were polite and helpful. Our room was in a different building over the road which was...

After searching through many hotels we were able to book with this one! What an underrated hotel...honestly this place had everything we needed- the basics, clean sheets, towels, working heater and a free daily breakfast :) Food there is expensive so that was a plus! When we were in Iceland we were going on tours and traveling throughout the day...

This hotel was welcoming and organised from the start. The rooms was comfortable and conveniently facing the Hallgrímskirkja Church. The reception area was a little small for the amount of people passing through as it was used by visitors in the other part of the hotel across the road as well. Breakfast was plentiful and enjoyable but again could get...

Great location and easy to find when you are lost due to being next to Hallgrimskirkja. Very helpful staff and a small breakfast every day. Ideal for tour trips. The buses pick you up right outside. Overall it was great and I will stay here next time I am in Reykjavik.

We stayed as a group of two couples in the hotel in January as part of a package with Icelandair. The hotel is no frills but has everything you need. Our room was painted a dark brown on all four walls which made the room dark and somewhat depressing. Breakfast is served downstairs in a buffet style. There is plenty...

Recommended by a workmate for our first visit and was great location. We had two rooms as no family room but both were clean and cosy. Breakfast was good but busy. Quite a few steep stairs and no lift so need to request low floor if you can't carry your luggage upstairs. Would stay here again if we come back.
