Let's start with the good, the hotel is in an absolutely amazing location. The views are beautiful, we saw the Northern Lights and the bar was just amazing to relax in and take in the scenery. The decor is modern and fun, but our toilet would continue to run if you didn't play around to get it to stop. I...

Only read previous reviews a day before arriving at this hotel and got quite worried, but they couldn't have been more wrong! Having stayed at numerous luxury hotels I found this hotel less stuffy and less pretentious. Maybe that makes it less luxurious (?), I don't know. Rooms are of avarage size, don't know what people are complaining about, and...

For a hotel that markets and sells itself on design, the quality of the rooms is terrible. Particularly the bathroom. Sink, shower screen had clearly been changed in our room, but rather than being re-tiled, the holes had just been filled with chalk. This is something you might expect in a shabby seaside hotel, but not from something that is...

The hotel room was extremely fcomfortable and represented everything we had come to love about Iceland. The restaurant was expensive if compared to English restaurants however, in Iceland the prices were comparable to...

This hotel is wonderful. It's about 1hr out of the city and smack dab in the heart of the golden circle--perfectly located for a lot of day trips to explore the national parks! Great food and drinks (expensive but all of tourist Iceland is expensive). Comfortable beds and nice rooms with lovely views of the lava fields. The hot tub...

I am incredibly disappointed with this hotel and the poor experience my boyfriend and I had over his birthday weekend. The attention to detail was some of the worst I have ever experienced for a hotel of this standard and affiliation. It began after a huge snowstorm in Reykjavik, many of the roads had been shut down and we were...

Bad hotel! The worst breakfast I ate. A small swimming pool. Small rooms. An expensive dinner. Not recommend! The room was very dirty. Shower faucet was fluid. I paid so much money for the hotel and did not get good value. Just disappointing!

“Ask for a room on the lake side”
  • No barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom, so the floor floods every time
  • View toward the lake
  • No place to put your toiletries kit
