Super friendly and helpful staff! The room is spacious. Toilet is clean. Complimentary breakfast is adequate and yummy! The only drawback is the not-so-clean bed sheet. You may ask for change if you really can't accept it.

Dear Peggy,
Thanks for the review and we apologize for the "hiccup" with the linen.

We are very happy that you enjoyed our breakfast. For our future guests, breakfast is organic, available between 7:00 - 10:00 every day and cost 1.600 ISK for 2017.
All the best, Thomas - Reception Manager

We only stayed overnight.
Difficult to find when your plane arrives at midnight so you need a map or the bus from the airport
Building is old but cleanliness was good as was the breakfast and comfortable bed.
Ideal for visiting the city and tours for the Golden Circle.
Staff pleasant and very helpful.
