Great location

Posted May 3, 2015
Excellent position easy to find as opposite cathedral on a high point in centre of city. Great base for exploring South West Iceland Don't expect luxury but lots of pluses, clean and friendly and the free coffee, tea, hot chocolate available all the time is a great bonus. No hesitation in recommending.

町歩きにも便利で静かなホテル

Posted May 3, 2015
目の前が教会。繁華街の端にあるため静かな環境。駐車場も無料。部屋は暖かいで清潔、朝食も美味しい。コスパもよくて選んで正解だった。

Very comfortable hotel

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: Breakfasts was included which is very practical. It was very cold so not in the mood to go looking for a place to have coffee in the morning early
Cons: An extra towel in the rooms per person would be helpful
Location: Cafe Loki is right next door if you want to try some Icelandic foods Reykjavik roasters is also one minute away to enjoy a nice coffee
The hotel is simple and clean Close to everything as Reykjavik centre is not too big anyway It is opposite one of the main attraction so quite handy Rooms were well heated And there is a local indoor pool/ hot baths 5 minutes away!

Great location but more like a dorm room

Posted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Wifi
Location: Loki cafe has super rye bread ice cream. Don't knock until you try it! Sunhollin swimming pool is wonderful and a short walk behind Hallsgrimkikja.
Super area to stay and quiet at night. This is a basic hotel meaning small to very small dorm like rooms, many floors and no elevator. The quality of the room and working wifi varies tremendously. My room and bed was comfortable and adequate. Reception area is friendly and comfortable with free tea and coffee.

Perfect location

Posted Apr 5, 2015
Pros: Location
Spent the afternoon exploring Reykavik, ate out and then watched the moon pass over the spire of the cathedral (no northern lights unfortunately). A simple hotel with simple facilities but a great location.

Good value hotel and location

Posted Mar 23, 2015
The hotel was in a great location facing the cathedral. It was minutes from the main shopping hub with plenty of choice of restaurants. The rooms are small which is typical for Iceland but ours was well equiped with 2 chairs and a desk in addition to the bed, side cabinets and a small wardrobe. As we were on the 4th floor,in the eaves, part of the room had a very low ceiling but did not cause any issues. The only draw back was carrying the cases up the stairs as no lift. There was also no hairdryer so bring your own. The bathroom was a wet room; again typically small. Unfortunately, the water did not drain away very quickly so lots of wet feet or shoes. Breakfast was a good quality simple buffet but there was a wait for a seat most mornings. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definately discuss plans with them. They only dropped to 4 because there was some confusion over our transfer back to the airport which they had reserved with the wrong carrier. However, this did not cause any problems or delay.

Nice hotel a very short walk to downtown

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: The proximity to the town, restaurants, shops and bars. The bed was comfortable for nights rest, and the breakfast was delicious each day.
Cons: The rooms could use darker curtains to make sleeping easier. It wasn't clear that our room would be in a separate building but it wasn't a problem.
Location: This hotel is directly across the street from the famous church. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants.
We arrived on an early flight and were able to stash our bags with the helpful hotel staff while we explored the town. Once our room was ready, we made our way from the main building to our room in a nearby building, and found our way to the room for a nap. The bed was comfortable enough - not quite like home but it did the job. The room was a little bright for sleeping, especially difficult in the summer time.

God value for money

Posted Jan 27, 2015
Only disadvantage is there is no escalator and therefore you must carry your suitcase up the stairs. The staff offered to do it. But I am not that old.

If you like it very simple.

Posted Jan 22, 2015 on Hotels.com
I booked this hotel because it was on the middle of Reykjavik. Location was awesome as we could walk around the city and get back very easily but the hotel itself wasn't up to my expectation. TV did not work, Room had no electric outlets, lack of amenities, bathroom did not have ventilation system so after shower bathroom was soaked with water. But if you want to get around city quickly and easily it is value for money.
