We stayed in this hotel for three nights in total as part of a tour around Iceland organised by Fosshotels. The rooms in this hotel were the worst we stayed in. Outdated and noisy when we stayed in rooms facing the rear. However, they were functional and had all we required, shower, kettle etc. The breakfast was the best we...

Reception was great at arranging taxis and providing tips on where to eat and shop. We went in several tours and the hotel co-ordinates with the tour companies so everything runs smoothly. Rooms were clean and simple - but you wont spend much time indoors in Iceland. Breakfast buffet us excellent!!! All hotels BEWARE - when showering the smell from...

The best things about this hotel are the very helpful hotel staff (particularly Steina, Christian and Lilliam), plentiful breakfast spread and location with views overlooking Reykjavik bay and harbor. The worst thing about this hotel was, unfortunately, the guest room, especially the bathroom. The shower in our ocean view double room was miniscule (about 2' square, with a shower curtain...

I stayed in this hotel with my daughter and two teenage grandchildren. We were able to have two twin rooms with a kitchenette. Fantastic. We could cooked ourselves a meal in the evening and start the day with an amazing breakfast. Really helpful and friendly staff. Jhon from Greenland was always ready to give helpful advice on whichever excursion we...

We had a wonderful 2-night stay at this hotel! It is convenient to both the old harbor and the shopping on Laugavegur. The rooms are simple, clean, and spacious. The staff was very friendly and accommodating - we were able to have early breakfast one morning, and they were happy to help us arrange transportation to the airport. Wifi was...

We stayed in this hotel 2 nights before our tour, 1 night after our tour, and 1 night after our self-guided tour. Each visit was excellent and each room clean and orderly. This is not a luxury hotel but we did not spend much time in our rooms. Great value for the price. It is near to the center of...

Its a hard decision to make re this Hotel. It had its plus and minus points. We stayed here on two seperate occassions.
