We only stayed one night and I chose that hotel because I have always wanted to try to stay in an old hotel in downtown Reykjavik. We got stuck in the elevator because it’s really small but the staff opened for us quickly. The room was roomy and loved the view. It’s of course an old hotel so there was not air conditioning that sucked because it was very hot when we went to bed. The tv is old but didn’t bother us for the one night stay. I think the worst part was that the shampoo and shower gel was not filled up so I think it was old because it smelled moldy and I couldn’t use it. Kind of expensive and I think they can have it so high because of where they are located. Honestly would not go again and I think something modern is better for me :)

This is my second time staying at this hotel. The first time I stayed was 10 years ago, and my stay really added to my visit, so I booked 2 nights with them again. The room was very comfortable and the staff’s hospitality was excellent. I had emailed their reception a few times, and Kasia was always very responsive and helpful. She was also fantastic in person. She was friendly, helpful, professional and always had a smile to greet us. The other staff was great too. Their breakfast was not the usual buffet, due to Covid restrictions, but a packed meal from one of the best bakeries in Reykjavik. It was delicious too! I can’t wait to return to this hotel in the future!

This is a classy hotel with a lot of artwork scattered throughout the building. Among the breakfast buffets I've had anywhere. Room is clean and warm. I loved the water kettle and the tea bags in the room. There's also a fridge where one can keep a few groceries. The airport buses don't go immediately to the hotel entrance. From the nearest bus stop it's a 5-10 minute walk. But the hotel location is a great compromise if you have business at the University of Iceland and still want to go to the Reykjavik's main shopping area in the evening. The only minor item I'd recommend the hotel to look into is the Wi-Fi. The signal was sometimes rather weak in my room. I visited during the build-up of the COVID-19 crisis. I really appreciate the professional attitude and courtesy with which the hotel staff still kept the hotel running!

This was an amazing place to stay with friends while on my birthday trip to Iceland. Centrally located with a friendly staff and wonderful drinks. Being here during a pandemic was also wonderful as there was art to be seen around the entire hotel and everything you needed for a great day inside.
