“Amazing property!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

me and my wife stayed over for one night when we arrived in iceland on 8th november 2013. We rented the car and to be honest with the construction going around the hotel, it was very tough to find the small roads leading to it because all roads were blocked off. We had to drive up to the main road next to the harbour and turn in from there instead, was quite a find if you asked me, and frstraiting to say the least. But once we got to the property, it was gorgeous. service was very good. we were put up in room 304, which was on the second floor. Getting the bags up is a little tough as the stairway is narrow and with 20kg suitcases, it does get a little tricky at times. Once we got up, it was a nice cosy room with a small kitchen. room was very cosy, beds were extremely comfortable. Only small issue we had was that in the toilet, there wasnt a shower curtain, so it was a little bit inconvenient when we had to shower, floors were getting soaked through, even with our due diligence in taking care of showering carefully.

location was unbeatable, it was just one street off the main shopping belt, barely 2 min walk. We didnt take the breakfast option, however can i suggest you dont take it as there is a nice bakery just 5 min walk from it. Its called Bakery Sandhot located on Laugavegur 36, which is one street off the hotel and the stuff they sell there is amazing! they open at 630am onwards. You can find that in my other review.

Overall, the property itself is good, service is brilliant, front desk was extremely helpful, even helped us with a reservation at a local icelandic restaurant. However becuase of the construction ongoing now, it is a problem finding the property as there are no direct roads to the hotel, and you have to navigate your own to the small roads at the back of the hotel instead, which doesnt show up on the GPS. Other than that, i would recommend this hotel just because of the property, its as good as it gets and the location is unbeatable. However pls take note of the construction as from the looks of it, it will probably be ongoing for at least another 3-6 months from what we observe.

Room Tip: Try choosing a room on the same floor as the reception or at the first floor which is the same floor...

Very nice hotel in the center of Reykjavik. It is walking distance to all attractions and to the shopping area. Big very clean rooms with a well equipped kitchenette. Friendly staff and good breakfast. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

I travelled here with my husband and mother in law for a long weekend. We were located in an apartment behind the main block and up a flight of stairs. The stairs were steep and quite narrow so not too good if you are elderly or disabled but the room was worth it when we got to the top. (There are ground floor rooms available) It was a very large room with two bedrooms, one had a double bed and one had two singles. The apartment was spotless and items such as milk, cereal and toiletries are all included and topped up every day.

The location was fantastic for everything - 10 minutes walk from the harbour for whale watching and 5 minutes from one of the main streets for restaurants. Despite being there over a weekend, we were not at all disturbed by any street noise.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. When we arrived there were road-works going on outside the hotel and we even received details a few days before of how to avoid them if we were arriving by car which was a nice touch.

One thing was that the double bedroom did not have a wardrobe but other than that, we were very pleased that we chose this apartment. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone staying in Reykjavik.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room if you are unable to climb stairs

We stayed in a three bedroom flat (4 adults and 2 children 6/7 yrs old). Very spacious, clean and functional. Staff super attentive and friendly...all requests dealt with quickly. Very well located near main shopping and restaurant streets. Breakfast bread in morning and other options (cheese eggs etc.) very good and in huge quantities. If you need anything else, there is a 1011 supermaket only a few blocks away (we bought pizza for the kids one night when we were too tired to go our for dinner). In Iceland the water on tap is declicious (straight from the glaciers)....like driking Evian, no need to buy still water! Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

The apartments are perfect for a family. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartments; they were clean, spacious, warm and every need was catered for. My family loved the variety of the breakfast baskets and we were given so much food, we were able to make packed lunches too. We became very fond on the Syrr yoghurt!. The receptionist was really helpful and the location was really perfect for exploring the city and amazing Iceland. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

We arrived early straight off the early morning Toronto flight and without hesitation our room was ready much to our relief.
Fresh bread, cheeses and eggs were put in the apartment each day for breakfast.
The Accommodation was also spotlessly clean and very warm!
Staff were extremely helpful in booking restaurants and tours.
City centre is only a few minutes walk away and there are plenty of bars and restaurants ,all of which are not grossly expensive!
Will use again on next visit.
