Good location, big clean rooms
Posted Nov 25, 2016
Very happy with my room, (room 423), I booked a double room back in July for Nov stay and requested a quiet room as I have been told some rooms face the main road near bars and shops and general traffic, I was told a quiet room was possible.
Upon arriving I think we were given an upgrade, as the room we got was a little studio room, (shower, kitchenette, microwave, kettle, cutlery, sofa, wardrobe and desk) which I was pleasantly surprised with.
The hot water has a very strong sulphur smell (eggy smell) which is the norm for hot water tap in Iceland but the cold water is fine. The rooms are very clean and has some really nice soaps and shampoos, the shower is fairly small but has great flow of hot water.
The hotel is located in a great area, very close to some of the best bakeries in Iceland, lots of restaurants and bars and very close to the Hallgrims church, Harpa and Grey Line Sales office.
The only issue I have with the hotel is that the double beds are in fact 2 singles pushed together, with 2 single duvets and the breakfast is very basic, bread, boiled eggs, cold cuts, cheese and cereal but then again it's located to 2 great bakeries making it easy to skip hotel breakfast altogether.
All in all a great hotel for a good price.
