Very conveniently placed hotel in middle of town and although road outside was busy at night the double glazing cut down on any noise from outside. Breakfast good in pleasant restaurant with nice views, and all day tea/coffee machine available. Very good value for money and would definitely recommend and return again.
The noise: during the weekend you can hear all night long all people passing by the road screaming and having parties, etc. I was at the 2nd floor (reception floor).
We had 1/2 price, which made it a good price/quality-hotel. Good breakfirst, good bed, good location.
Great location, affordable price, very clean and good service
Tv and fridge didn't work, no wireless internet
The location was ideal. The staff was very helpful and gave me good suggestions about dinner.
My room was near a disco and I could hear it from midnight until 2:30. Very diffivult to sleep.
Excellent central location, all-day rooftop lounge, comfortable beds
The service at the reception desk: excellent
the toaster in the breakfast lounge did not work well
very convenient location to walk most places in Reykjavik.
a little noisy on Saturday night with the revellers
Very central.Friendly staff.
Definitely not a 4 star hotel ; everything looked a little bit cheap. No place to let the luggage after check out (you have to let them in front of the reception desk). Poor breakfast.
Perfect for a 4 day visit with my son - central - plenty of restaurants and easy to find - it was ideal for the trips that we went on - which were numerous - really liked the idea of the restaurant where you could just go and help yourself to coffee/tea etc and the breakfasts were brilliant. The hotel staff were kind and courteous and we really enjoyed out stay. If we ever return we shall definately stay again.
Very convenient hotel, perfect location in the main street, good and clean room, very good breakfast, nice staff.
The wired internet ethernet conection had to be clarified previously in order to have the proper connection.
I think the location and the Botique nature of the hotel was outstanding.
Convenient, easy to book on-line, staff was excellent, breakfast was very good, nice to have internet access. The room was on the smaller size but worked well for us and was clean and comfortable.
It was in a great location. The breakfast was super and I loved the sunny, greenhouse type breakfast room. Everything was clean and we were very comfortable.
I have one suggestion. I think that it would be a good idea to allow checkout at 1:00 without an additional fee. Since the flybus picks up then, that would be much more convenient and allow a little more time to visit around town.
The Location the helpful staff was excellent.
