We stayed at this hotel in April 2017 and are a young couple. Upon arrival we asked for a high floor room with an ocean view after reading previous comments. This is exactly what we got. Room 512 was perfect. The breakfast is basic, I wouldn't say its a full English but its everything that you could need to start...

Went to Iceland in February for a long girls weekend with my best friend. This was a great hotel for our 5 day trip. We took a red eye and arrived in time for breakfast. This was key to our trip. Food is super expensive everywhere in Iceland ($14 for a bottle of beer, $12 for a premade sandwich at...

I was originally going to book the main Foss Hotel, but I am glad we chose this one as it cost less, leaving more money for the tours etc. The hotel was perfect for what we needed. A great base for the town, and the harbour walk is right in front of the hotel. There is a great breakfast to...

Centrally located, mid range hotel. Rooms are a little dated but it is clean and the breakfast is delicious with a good spread. Sufficiently comfortable. The lift is rather small and can only take a few people and very limited luggage at a time, so if you are there with a group, it will be wise to move your luggage...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Iceland. The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from the centre of Reykjavik, and is near the sea front which makes for a nice view. The rooms are small/medium size with TV, en suite shower, coffee/tea. The double bed was really comfy. The room was cleaned...

We booked this hotel with Gate 1 travel package. When we checked in, we were so tired we stayed in the room for first night. It was so small we could not store our two suitcases. Also the windows were skylights over bed and you could not see outside. You had to climb on top of bed to open window...

Reykjavik can be extremely pricey, but this hotel has excellent rates if you book early enough. More importantly, it is only two blocks from the city's main shopping/restaurant street, and is a standard pick up and drop off place for many buses and tours. The breakfasts included in the room rate are excellent and substantial. The staff is cordial, helpful...

The hotel has good location, very close and walking distance to most of the major attractions in Reykjavik. Staffs were very helpful (we had trouble with our car and they helped us with phone calls to the car rental agency). The inside is clean and room is acceptable. The bathroom was on the smaller side, and the water had a...

By Reykjavik's pricey standards, this is an inexpensive hotel. Standards throughout are of the low-three-star level. We had a room with a sloping roof, and with not a huge amount of room around the comfy-enough double bed. Facilities are minimal: there were tea- and coffee-making facilities (but, weirdly, no milk, not even UHT milk) and some very basic squeezy soap...

“You should confirm whether you can get the room with a nice view or not before arriving.”
  • The beds were clean and comfy although they were small. The radiator was working well.
  • If you open the door, you can step out to the parking lot. We had to close the curtains all thet
  • The living room look old and dark.
  • Anybody can look into my room from the empty parking lot.
