Staff were friendly and helpful. There is no parking on-site, however, the staff gave us good advice on where to park our car for free, within 7-8 minutes walk. They also provided us information on Northern Lights, laundry mat and restaurants. There is complimentary coffee and tea available most of the day at the lobby. It is nice to get...

I'm gonna get rid of the CON first: the noise. The hotel is located in a noisy neighbourhood. Period. I stayed there for 5 week days. (Mon-Fri). Monday and Tuesday were okay, but on Wednesday, the bar in front of the hotel decided to leave their outside sound speaker turned on until 1 am! And when they do that, I...

This hotel is located in the City Center / downtown area of Reykjavik. Everything (shops, banks, museums) are in the walking distance. Staff was very professional and helpful (ask them for restaurant recommendations). The only downside of this hotel is the noise. If you are staying on Friday and Saturday, just be prepared not to get any sleep. The location...

Brilliant hotel, receptionists couldn't have been more helpful. Location is so central we booked transfers for trips and didn't really need them. 2 supermarkets within walking distance. Short walk to most places. Clean and very comfortable rooms with a fridge and kettle. Several restaurants on the same street reasonable prices. If going again I wouldn't book anywhere else

I would stay here again! Love the staff and location of the hotel. We arrived at 9am and the staff secured our luggage so we could walk about the town until proper check-in 2pm. Reykjavik is a beautiful city by foot. Plenty to see and do for everyone visiting.

There are not many 4 or 5 star hotels in Reykjavik, this place is as good as it get for me! There is a bar across the street that can get loud, so ask for a room in the back. The water in Reykjavik smells like sulfur (eggs), so don't be shocked when you turn on the shower. It's a...
