We were assigned this hotel as part of a holiday deal and I was a bit worried by some of the reviews. Granted this hotel is not in the town centre but the area is wonderfully quiet and there are places to shop and eat...More
We stayed here as part of a package. It was very basic but clean. No restaurant on site and a bit off the beaten track. We walked into the city centre which took 45 mins. It’s nothing fancy but if you need somewhere to put...More
We were allocated this hotel as part of a deal by a U.K. Company called BARGAIN LATE HOLIDAYS. All we wanted was something warm and clean as a base. We left after 20 minutes!
Check in is like a back street mini cab office. All...More
We stayed in this hotel as part of our package to Iceland and my first and overall impression was that it was really dirty and neglected. From dirty carpets to disgusting tiled floors in the bar and eating areas I’d hate to think when it...More
We didn't select this hotel ourselves as it was booked as part of a package, and probably would have chosen somewhere more central if we had. However, it turned out to be a very cosy place to stay with comfortable beds, a great shower and...More

If your booking does not include breakfast (room-only booking) then you can still have breakfast of course, but you will need to pay for that on the spot.
It costs 2000 ISK per person per day.

Hi, breakfast was the usual cereals, tea, coffee, toast. Plus loads of fresh fruit (all local), some lovely freshly cooked waffles (got hooked with the Maple syrup..YUM) , cheese, hams, crackers. All the typical things you get in a buffet style European breakfast - minus croissants! The cost is 2,000 Krona per person, per day (£14). We had room 402, first floor in the 'other' building away from the reception. It was a lovely big, airy clean room, but we didn't have a hob or microwave.
We did have a fridge (two actually ??!) kettle with tea and coffee making facilities. Towels were fresh every day, and the shower was to die for..Geo thermal hot water (okay, it has a smell - just ignore it) was powerful and so good.
Out of reception, turn right and three shops down was 'Ginger', a healthy, 'Naked Burger' cafe. Food was terrific and very, very tastey. £39 for two meals including drinks - Remember - NOTHING is cheap in Iceland, and you will realise this place isn't too bad. Do you like Indian food?
Bombay Bazaar, is a fantastic restaurant in the road that runs parallel to the hotel 'behind' you. We ate there twice. Couldn't fault it.
The organised trips (we booked with Gray Line) pick you up outside, and drop you back to the hotel. It was a faultless service.
About 5 mins walk (turn left out of the hotel) takes you to the bus stop, and you can go into the city centre and almost anywhere else too.
Big tip. Down load the STRAETO.IS app on your phone. You buy your bus tickets before you get on the bus, and all the times & routes are on there with live times. So clever.
If you want food on your room (or to take on your Golden Circle trip etc, Hagkaup is a 24/7 super market,about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Turn left,left at the end of the road (opp the petrol station) and it is straight down - after crossing the main road - just passed the Suzuki dealers - whose signs and lights you will see first.
Hope this is helpful.
