“Bargin price for this nice budget hotel just out of the center.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

There is no escaping this is a budget hotel but it does everything so well you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a more expensive hotel.
The place is spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Rooms are small but bright with with a huge window letting in loads of natural light, beds are on the small side but are comfortable.
Breakfast is continental cold buffet style, but food is plentyful and good quality and is ample to keep you going until dinner, dining room is nice.
We got a free night booking through expedia and averaged just over £30 per night including breakfast so amazing value overall. There is also free parking less than 2 minutes walk away.
Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Well its noy going to be really cheap its Iceland but as part of a package booked with Icelandair this was pretty good value.

I am liking the cheerful staff at reception very much- yes its true everyone does ask what time the Northern Lights get turned on. The hotel is central ( you are unlucky not to be central in a small city like Reykjavik but it does happen) though the immediate surroundings are a bit drab but at least parking is good. Breakfast was better than expected & perfectly adequate- good coffee.

The rooms are functional & not all the windows open. Mine did which was handy as some say the hotel is over warm.

There are random columns in the rooms - in my room this was beside a bed- elsewhere they might restrict tv viewing from parts of the room.

The locks on some of the doors are a bit tricky but the staff were excellent at sorting out . Rather weirdly there are no internal stairs (external fire escape) but the lifts were fine.

Did i like? Yes. Did they turn the Northern Lights on for me? No. But i suspect there is still more to do here than in Tromso so its a positive vote from me for Reykjavik in March. & the hotel anytime

A very nice and cosy hotel, perfectly located - near main tourist street and Hlemmur bus station, 15 minutes of walk to the city centre. Distinctive spartan Scandinavian design combined with luxury duvets, warm floors and hot shower.The personnel is truly helpful and friendly. Very clean rooms. Great choice of TV channels. To be honest my "fast-growing" son was missing hot breakfast in the morning but anyway there was food enough to feel quite safe till lunch). All 7 nights that we spent in the hotel we felt perfectly at home. The hotel is like Reykjavik itself - cute, friendly, cosy and not snobbish. I would like to stay there again for sure.

Very very clean rooms though room got hot at night.

Showers were great but wished they gave you a kettle and tea and coffee in you room. (everywhere else does?!)

Breakfast was good but need another toaster. Good coffee.

We were there for 3 nights last week in a standard double. For the price we expected similar to UK Premier Inn which would have been been fine. In addition to the basic room, Klettur provided a fridge to stock byo wine, milk etc and the bathroom was supplied with shampoo and conditioner. The bedroom and the few public rooms were spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. As other reviewers have said, breakfast was basic with limited range of cereal, no hot food and the cold selection including fruit very limited and the same everyday. It was however perfectly acceptable. Would stay here again for a short visit.

We stayed here as part of an Iceland air package.

The best thing about the hotel was the cleanliness and the amazing, roomy, hot and powerful shower.

The worst thing was that the minimalist rooms boardered on the basic. There was not enough surface or storage space, especially in the bathroom, which was annoying at times.

The location wasn't too bad, only a fifteen minute walk into the centre and there was a convenient car park for our hire car. The breakfast was pretty nice too.

So, all in all not much to criticise but not much to praise either. A nice, basic hotel.

Really friendly Hotel just outside centre Reykjavik (about fifteen minutes to walk to centre) loved the smiling faces - clean rooms, warm light duvets and excellent shower room. My only moan was the breakfast this was a tad repetative and could easily be recitified by a slight variation in the buffet selection available - the up side was you could help yourself to as much as you wanted
