“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

The staff at this hotel sure do go the extra mile to help you out whatever way they can. If you have any question about how to get around the local area , where to eat, things to see, they are more than willing to help. If they don't know the answer, they will call someone who does to find out for you. Everyone who works here speaks very good English and most everyone I have met in the Reykjavik area does too.

Stayed here Aug 7-13, 2013 with husband who can be a certified pain. Even HE had no complaints. Clean, quiet, comfortable. A high point is the staff who are incredibly helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was plentiful. Location is a bit out of the action. A plus for us, you have to decide for yourself if that matters to you. It is an easy 10 min bus ride to downtown. Why not 5 stars? There are no meals available late in the evening. A couple of times, we came back from late excursions and were out of luck. But knowing that, plan ahead and you are golden.

We came in late at night and received a very nice welcome with drinks and fruits and smiles. Breakfast was generous and prepared with care to our surprise, internet was free. Later we will learn that this is not always the case. A nice start to a new country

This was our first night in Iceland and we found the hotel to be very pleasant. Just south of Reykjavik, the town is typical. The hotel room was large, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Desk staff very helpful and courteous.

We stayed here for a quick four day trip to Iceland. The studio we had was ample space for me, my wife and two kids in their twenties. Rooms were clean, well maintained and spacious. The whole hotel feels like straight out of an Ikea catalog :-) Free wireless with reasonable transmission speeds. Free breakfast was fine but a bit unimaginative. One downside is the absence of a bar. The hotel is in a suburb of Reykjavik but it's easy to get into town and/or to the airport. It's in an industrial area, so the surroundings are drab. Just a few minutes ride into Hafnarfjordur, which has a handful of restaurants. It's reasonable good value, for Iceland.

Stayed here June 27-July 3, 2013. Very nice hotel, helpful staff, good value. Our kitchenette room was clean, large and comfortable. A car is helpful, but there is a bus stop very near by and you can walk into the town in 10 minutes. It's about a 15 minute drive to Reykjavik. There is plenty of parking and the internet connection in our room was strong. Breakfast was good, nothing fancy, but just about the same tings I'd order if I went out for breakfast. There was really nothing about this hotel that was not to our liking and I would recommend it anyone looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in the capital region.

Room Tip: I would suggest a kitchenette room - there is a grocery store just down the street. Eat a good brea...

Just returned from our 5 day trip to Iceland. First few nights we stayed at this hotel. if you have a car, I think staying in this hotel is better than staying in Reykjavik as the room was three times bigger than the room in the Centerhotel Arnarhvoll. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean and the hotel has plenty of parking spots. The breakfast was basic continental so nothing to write about there. Also in the room is a fridge and microwave which was very handy. There are a few supermarkets nearby that are a five minute drive. The staff was very friendly and if I'm ever in uncle and than I will choose this hotel over the one in the center of the city. From this hotel the drive to Reykjavik was 10, 15 minutes and the parking there was not expensive at all. If you get hungry, eat dinner at the Viking Village restaurant -the food was so good!
