The room was just enough with an en-suite shower room,...

Just stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Lovely hotel in a central location. Nice well maintained with friendly staff. Iceland is very expensive and the hotel provides free tea and coffee which is a absolute god send. Unless you've experienced this you won't know how good this is. Breakfast is included which is buffet style and sets you up...

I've stayed at this hotel three different times over the past five years. I mostly stay outside of the center of the city, as the activity level in the center is rather high. But it has spectacular views of Hallgrimskirkja from the breakfast room as well as the front rooms (because of my returning status, Peter gave me a top...

Delightful family run hotel in an excellent location. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is basic but there is enough of it to keep you going. We were in room 401 which was clean but not overly warm. The only problem we had with the room was due to being high up the noise of...

Nice family run, mid level priced hotel in great location. Good friendly service and advice from reception staff. Rooms are fine, a little dull but clean, comfortable and in our case a new bathroom, but could do with more comfortable chair(s) in the room. Bar/lounge a good place to chat or read with free tea and coffee, breakfast included and...

Compact rooms but very clean with en suite wet rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. Have stayed twice and would stay again. You won't get lost in the city - just head for the cathedral wherever you are !

Would definately return here. Just had 4 nights stay and the location couldn't be better, set within the traditional area of Reykjavik and directly opposite the iconic hallsgrimskirja church. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity and the helpful hotel staff are always ready to give directions/suggestions and book transfers etc for you. Breakfast was...
