Quirky hotel in a good way

Posted Mar 20, 2017
Great hotel, 10 min walk from all the action in the city centre so nice and quiet. Very clean with great staff. As with everything in Iceland food and drink is expensive. Rooms and beds were comfortable and clean. Would recommend again definitely

The location of he hotel is good

Posted Mar 19, 2017
Cons: Have a few separate tables for breakfast
Location: Cathedral is close by.
Rooms are clean and warm. Breakfast is communal there are only 4 large tables on which everyone has to sit. Friendly and helpful staff. Ask for a room on a upper floor. First floor you can hear the traffic

Comfortable hotel with wonderful staff

Posted Mar 9, 2017
Pros: Comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast.
Cons: The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but there was plenty of hot water.
Location: The hotel is located in a quiet area, but it is still walking distance to restaurants, shopping, museums, etc.
We arrived in the midst of Reykjavik's biggest snowstorm in years. The hotel staff was gracious and most helpful in getting us a room as soon as possible. We had a nice suite on the 4th floor, where we could watch the city try to deal with all that snow! We also had the great fortune to be able to see the Northern Lights over Reykjavik from the comfort of our room.

Amazing country and comfortable hotel.

Posted Feb 25, 2017
Pros: Comfortable hotel in quiet area. Worth paying extra for suite and buffet breakfast was very good. Staff friendly and helpful. Very pleased overall.
Cons: Too many pictures. More is often less. Decor needs to be a little better maintained.
Location: Very close to main shopping and restaurant area and close to Harbour for boat trips etc. Very convenient.
Very lucky with weather. Saw Northern Lights with best activity since October apparently. Saw Iceland at its best during Golden Circle tour. Bathed in Blue Lagoon under the stars with snow falling occasionally. Whales were shy unfortunately but wife liked the weather changes whilst at Sea. A few curious dolphins made up a little for the reluctant whales. Prices in Iceland are Extremely high, so save a bit more before you come. Amazing country to visit.

Charming, small European boutique hotel!

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Wonderful, large art collection. Location!! Location! Both close to everything and very quiet. The staff was amazing! Very helpful with anything and everything. Helped in planning our day trips and arranging transportation. Made calls to help with some questions we had and straightened them out. So helpful. Many thanks! We enjoyed the European breakfast which was included each morning. We looked forward to it. The only change for our next visit is we would get a Jr Suite. We would like a little more space then the standard room. The whole feel of Historic Reykjavik is exactly what we expected from Iceland. New Reykjavik is becoming VERY modernized. We had the best time. Winter in Iceland is magical! Thank you all so much for our fond memories!!

Dear Elli, Thank you very much for your lovely comments! I am extremely happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the staff to be helpful - of course I totally agree with you, they are amazing :-) I will make sure that they know how happy you were with their assistance throughout your stay. Since you mention the art collection, which is something we are also very proud of... did you know it is the largest collection of art by Icelandic artists in the country? We are always ready to show our guests around and tell them a little bit about the works and artists. Next time you visit us, make sure to get a tour of the hotel! We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Warm regards from Reykjavík, Alda Marín
