Upon arriving in the early evening at the hotel, the receptionist could not have been less interested in us, and more or less threw us the keys, and then informed us that the lift didn't work. Not the best first impression! The room was small and very basic and the sheets on the bed were full of holes. The bathroom...

Stayed there for a week. Great location, really close to city centre. Reception staff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast is very basic but tasty. Room was clean. Small bathroom with weird shower and no ventilaton but wasn't a huge issue. Generally hotel does the job if you are there to visit Iceland. Will stay there again if come back...

The hotel itself is nothing fancy, but the beds are comfortable enough and it is clean. Siggi, who is downstairs most nights, is excellent and particularly helpful. The only problem I have with the hotel is this: breakfast is generally included, however, it runs from 8-10, and only cereal is available before that. Most tour companies will pick you up...

Spartan, but very clean. Easy parking right in front of hotel. Location is within walking distance of all downtown sights. Simple, but good breakfast included. Check on the church, but don't feel obligated to buy elevator ticket (No one checks you!) Dine at Cafe Loki for Icelandic dishes at reasonable prices.

After reading the reviews I can only say I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, warm and provided all that we needed for the short times we were in it. The staff could not have been more helpful, booking our trips, return bus home. Breakfast was more than adequate to set you up for a days exploring. The excellent...

After reading through several reviews of this hotel my sister and I (both senior citizens) were wondering what we would find. The hotel really is no more than a hostel but on saying that , the location was excellent, the bed comfortable and the breakfast good as far as we were concerned. Don't expect a hot breakfast but there was...

This hotel is in a fantastic location, 5 minutes walk from the main shopping area with great restaurants less than a minutes walk away. The rooms themselves are not as small as I imagined them to be and with the range of things to see in and around Reykjavik you will not be in your room much anyway. I did...

I go to Iceland regularly to see friends and have stayed in quite a few places. Iceland is generally expensive so to find something this cheap right in the center of town was great. First things fist, the rooms are small, but in Reykjavik and Iceland there is so much to see and do that you are only in the...
