Fantastic location, friendly & knowledgeable staffPosted May 23, 2015
It's not the Ritz, but this clean, efficient, entirely adequate hotel is quieter than many more expensive competitors. My only complaint would be the breakfast which was less than I had expected and hoped for.

Excellent stay, modest budget, heart of ReykjavikPosted May 11, 2015
Great hotel right across the street from the landmark church (made it very easy to find my way back). I travelled solo and the single room was just right for me. Small, but a comfy bed and very clean. I was out sightseeing all day, so a fancy room wasn't needed. Added bonus, I arrived on an overnight flight, getting into Reykjavik at about 6 am. The staff let me check into my room early (no charge), so I was able to have a small nap and some breakfast before properly starting my day in Iceland. Very nice touch that was greatly appreciated! The included hotel breakfast is excellent! I was expecting a no-frills stay and this was better than I expected! Really nice home base for exploring the area. Definitely recommend! (Note there is no elevator, so expect a walk-up to your room).

Great locationPosted 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.

Very comfortable hotelPosted 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 roomPosted Apr 12, 2015
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 locationPosted Apr 5, 2015
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 locationPosted 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.

Booking error did not stay at hotel as bookedPosted Feb 23, 2015 on Hotels
Could not rate as we didn't get to stay!!! They made a mess of the booking so tried to put us in a very poor hotel (4th Floor Hotel") awful. We went back and complained and they put us in "Room with a view" which was excellent. This wasted 1/2 a day of our short holiday so I am not impressed anmd never got to stay in the hotel we booked.
