Surprisingly good hotel
Posted Feb 23, 2017
Stayed here with 2 friends on a short break. We chose the hotel for price more than anything as we were travelling on a budget. On arrival we were met by a very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable young lady who was willing and able to answer all our questions. We were slightly early for check in and she checked if our room was ready which it was so we were able to go straight to it. The room was extremely clean and tidy. It was warm and the beds were comfortable. The shower facilities were good with plenty of hot water for 3 ladies to shower one after the other! The breakfast buffet was very good - much better than the description provided on Expedia and this was a very pleasant surprise. The food was hot and well cooked and included a selection of cold meats, cheese, salad, fruit, yoghurt, fresh and sliced bread, bacon, sausages and scrambled egg as well as croissants, pan au chocolat, pastries and a selection of hot drinks plus orange juice. All the staff were friendly and able to access the tour companies details so they can check whether your trip is still running. Excellent!! The location of the hotel was fantastic for us as it was quiet and just a short walk from the local shopping mall where you can also purchase souvenirs. There is a small selection of cafes including Subway and TGIs within the mall. It is also within the pick up areas for Grey Line and Reykjavik Tours. You can purchase bus tickets from reception and it is easy to get to the city from there.
