This hotel is situated in a great location in Reykjavik close to pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and even a church. The square can get a little rowdy at night at the weekend but the hotel has excellent sound insulation providing that your windows are closed. The hotel itself is cosy and welcoming with a small area available downstairs for relaxing on...

Booked this hotel for a 5 night visit running into Christmas week December 2015. From the moment you walk through the door you feel like you have stepped back in time, the quality of materials used and the attention to detail is quite breath taking. The seamless blend of 20s style and 21st century technology is a testament to Icelandic...

Nice hotel, great breakfast but a bit pricey. Very clean. Great staff. Centrally located in Reykjavik. We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2015. Next time, not staying in Reykjavik as it is far from all the sights you want to go to. Reykjavik is nice, but you really don't need more than half a day there.

Lovely hotel, furnished in Art Deco style. Rooms are good size and very nice, bathrooms have full amenities. Our room (2nd floor) was very hot in winter. Buffet breakfast offered plenty of choices. Staff was very helpful and cordial. This is a great location for sightseeing in Reykjavik.

Decent hotel decorated in an Art Deco style with spacious rooms and I particularly liked the floor heating in the bathroom. The staff were very helpful and friendly and gave us decent advice on places to visit. You get what you pay for and this is not cheap but it is situated right in the centre of town. Breakfast was...

Right in the middle of the older part of the city, this makes a great base to explore from. It's low key Art Deco in style. Rooms are very comfortable. Staff are, as usual for Iceland, very helpful and efficient. Breakfast was good and although we didn't have dinner here the restaurant looked very good. Would definitely recommend and definitely...

Nice breakfast with all you needed: tea, coffee, juice, milk, skýr, cereals, meat, cheeses, jam, bacon, eggs, sausages and bread. The only small thing to complain about was the fact that...
