ComfortablePosted Jul 1, 2014
Only in Iceland for 24 hours. Great breakfast, most of the staff exceptionally nice. The only downside was the hotel was not closer to town. It worked in that the tour buses pick you up and drop you back. The airport bus does the same.

A dorm that pretend to be hotelPosted Jun 30, 2014
The only way to describe this hotel is a dorm or hostel that claim to be hotel. The room is one relatively large space packed with beds all around with a kitchen cabinet as part of the same space. Luckily, the bathroom is separated from the rest of the room. It is far from the airport (30 minutes ride) or downtown (similar distance) in an industrial zone. If it wasn’t our last night in Iceland before catching an early morning flight I would go and look for somewhere more decent than this property.

Pros: Staff was great, very clean, nice breakfast, would definitely stay again.
Cons: Soundproof rooms/windows Room darkening curtains Install laundry facilities
Location: Not far from Keflavik and Reykjavik. Traffic wasn't bad going anywhere from this location
Very nice hotel with exceptional staff. We were located in a newer section away from the tour bus guests, which was very much appreciated on our part. Breakfast was very good with a nice selection of items. Had a kitchen if you wanted to cook instead of eating out. The only unfortunate parts were: a bar fight close by which woke me up. The other, was the fact that it didn't have room darkening curtains for summer when it stays daylight longer.

Average HotelPosted Jun 19, 2014
Pros: Hotel Staff
Cons: Would not let us check out one hour late because it was to hard on the cleaning staff.
Location: Good restaurants and the Viking Festival.
Standard hotel. Nothing fancy here just a good room at a good rate in a decent location. It was a 10 minute drive to downtown Reykevik but the town the hotel is located in actually had better local dining options. We found the restaurants in the capital to be trending toward chain restaurants. The staff was very helpful. No World Cup games on the TV in the room though was odd. I would stay here again because of the price and friendly staff. Breakfast was average, just like the rest of our stay at this hotel.

Out of Town but convenientPosted Jun 17, 2014
We took the bus in/out of Downtown. Nearby there is a Sushi place, Pizza, Subway, and a couple of local versions of the 7/11. A good choice if you want large rooms with kiitchenette. The morning breakfast included was just fine for quick getaway!!!

Nice hotel but not very convenientPosted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: A quiet hotel. Quite comfortable. Helpful staff. You can have lunch and dinner if so desired.
Cons: Breakfast is a bit lame. Some eggs and bacon and fresher coffee would have been nice. How about a telly that really worked.
Location: Catch the No.1 bus into Hafnarfjordur and take further buses or whatever to go on to the interesting stuff. The bus also goes to Reykjavik.
I stayed at this hotel, I forget why, probably to save a few quid. The small room for one was quite comfortable, especially after I received an extra pillow. Nice and clean. TV with poor reception. Not much of a view, but then the hotel is on a stretch of road with factories and other businesses. Breakfast was the usual continental fare but not very inspired and the coffee! Sad! Aside from the convenience for catching the bus to and fro from Reykjavik or Hafnarfjordur, the staff were nice and friendly, and they can sell you day passes for the bus and help with arrangements for excursions. Thing is, it's a bit far to walk into Hafnarfjordur - and not a pretty walk, as such - and way too far to walk into Reykjavik. You'd probably be better going for a hotel very central to either of those places.

Functional hotel close to ReykjavikPosted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff Good breakfast Lots of info material Good rooms
Cons: Nothing the hotel can do, but a nearby bar / restaurant would have been nice
Location: About 40 km (25 miles) from the international airport and 10 km (6 miles) from Reykjavik city center. Easy to reach by car, no restaurants nearby
I visited Iceland just for a weekend stopover and was looking for a hotel as a base for rental car excursions. The hotel is easy to reach from the airport and lies just at the outskirts of Reykjavik. Thus, it was very convenient to drive the Golden Circle as well as zipping into the City. Next door is a snack bar / convenience store. Other then that there is nothing much in walking distance. Planning to spend almost all my time in Iceland's breathtaking countryside, I didn't mind the surroundings. The hotel itself is functional: Descent sized room with a comfortable bed and a desk. Only the desk chair was horrible, however, I hadn't planed to work there anyhow. The bathroom has a shower. The front desk staff was very friendly. The hotel has free WiFi, and you can have the front desk staff print documents for you for a small fee. The breakfast was European: good bread, cheese, ham, boiled eggs, fruit and vegetables. I guess there were cereals too, but I preferred the bread.

Affordable hotel with excellent guest servicePosted May 26, 2014
Pros: Guest services, being able to book tours directly through the front desk, the location, clean rooms, nice breakfast, and affordability.
Cons: I was happy with everything.
Location: The location is roughly 20 minutes outside of Reykjavik and close to the Viking Village, which has an excellent restaurant.
This was our first trip to Iceland and we chose this hotel because of it affordability and location. This hotel is outside of Reykjavik city limits so a rental car is recommended for staying here. We had already decided that the best way to explore Iceland was through vehicle so this wasn't an issue for us. First let me say how impressed we were with the hotel staff; the front desk always had someone with a smile and excellent advice to give. There was a young lady and two gentlemen that we saw on the regular and it became a daily event where we would chat for a few minutes about general Icelandic customaries or simply asking for advice on food, tours, sights, directions or even just making conversation. They were always very pleasant. The breakfast was the same items every day of our stay but at the same time there was a large selection of food. Very easy to fill up before the start of your day. The rooms were always clean and neat upon return after a long day of exploring. The rooms are on the smaller side (think cruise ship) however, they were perfect for one person. A comfy bed and decent size bathroom were all I needed for my vacation and this hotel room was just that. If you are someone that tends to spend a lot of time in the hotel room when on vacation, then maybe this hotel isn't for you (I can only speak for the single bed rooms, as I don't know if this hotel offers suites). Overall, I throughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend this hotel.
