This is a lovely hotel! Staff people are very friendly and helpful. Our room was immaculate. We had a corner room (304) with lots of windows and a great view of the activity on the streets below. Many restaurants, shops and attractions are within easy walking distance. We arrived early in the morning following an overnight flight from Chicago. Since our reserved room was already unoccupied, the staff offered us the opportunity to check in early and go directly to the dining room for breakfast. The extra cost of 35 euros was well worth it. The breakfast buffet was simple, with fresh fruits, juices, cheese, sliced meat, cereals, boiled eggs, yogurt, a variety of delicious breads and condiments. We had breakfast six days in a row, and the offerings were identical each time. I would have liked to have some variety in the meat and cheese from day to day; it got a bit old eating the same thing every day. But everything was fresh and plentiful. The dining room, located on the third floor, is bright and cheery, with windows on three sides for a great view. Just for guests' info, I would point out that this small hotel does not have a lobby/common area where guests can hang out. The check-in desk is in a small space on the second floor. Also, there is no bar or restaurant. These are not complaints: I'm just pointing it out because it's different from most hotels which have large lobby areas. We loved this hotel and will definitely stay there again when we return to Reykjavik!

The receptionist was amazing! We need a room in the quieter side of the hotel after delayed flights. They didn't have any available but she promptly checked with partner locations close by and offered to move us at no extra cost. As it was a bday booking, they were kind enough to ensure that it felt special, and memorable!! Huge thanks to the staff member who helped us out on April 7/8.

I cancelled this booking in plenty time as they said there was a free cancellation policy. I have proof that it was in process but they took over £200 from my account and will not return it,

Ideal location for Reykjaviks bars and cafes. Five minute walk to bus stop 14, which is on all the tour/bus companies pick up/drop off timetables. Nice, clean rooms, helpful staff and free breakfast included too - would happily stay again and recommend
