“tour group hotel far from the center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

The hotel is far from the city center, not at walking distance. It does advertize the fact that it offers free bus passes to the city but neglects to add that the bus arrives only once every half hour and takes you to a rather remote area of the center, 15 to 20 minutes walk from the sites that interest tourists (old harbour, the central pond area, most shops and restaurants, even banks). And, yes, you have to get to the bank to change money in the city, unless you changed enough money at the airport. No other change offices in the city center.

Rooms are nice, but if you face the runways of the domestic airport adjacent to the hotel, it can get quite noisy if you open the windows, and quite hot in the summer if you don't open the windows.

After a long day visiting the sites and returning to your room for some rest, it becomes a hassle to return to the city in the evening, with the long walk and wait for the bus, and you reluctantly opt for the hotel restaurant which is OK, but certainly not a preferred location to explore what the city has to offer in terms of cafes, restaurants and a bit of night life, especially as the sun hardly sets in the summer nights. Thus, you miss out on a major attraction of Icelandic summer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the airport runway;it has better view but is much noisier. We stayed in bo...

Large hotel in Icelandic terms, Though not in center of town, it is conveniently located within nice walking distance downtown, across the street from hertz car rental and the pearl of Reykjavik - Perlan!
It's rated 4* but rooms need refurbishing, water leaking in shower, sink blocked..... Bathroom too narrow and hard to move around.
Full breakfast.
Use of hot bath should be free for hotel guests.

We were able to check in at 11am and on departure for a very early flight we were able to get breakfast at 4.15am! Excellent spacious and comfy room. Very friendly and helpful staff and they have a travel centre in the hotel who will help with any travel details. There is a direct bus service to the town centre or it is a 15 minutes walk.

I like this hotel. I realise that it is busy and impersonal to a great extent, but I like the fact that it is close to the local airport, close to Norduflug Helicopter tours, close to Perlan and only a short walk into the city. The hotel will provide you with a free bus pass if you give card details in case it gets lost (don't lose it! The charge is rather high!!) It is a fairly quiet hotel, for all its busy nature, or I have found it so. The restaurant has an eclectic mix of food on offer - strange initially - but when you look you realise they have worked quite hard to give a good range from light snack through pizza (very good!) to just short of fine dining. The thing I like most is that there is never a problem parking!!! Recommended. However, having stayed this time at the sister hotel Klauster, they definitely have the edge where the restaurant is concerned!

Room Tip: Perhaps avoid the rooms at the front over the door - people tend to leave in the early hours. The b...

It is kind of a way from the city centre but still within reach. It is very close to the domestic airport and the main bus station is just a few steps away. I enjoyed the peace and quiet at this hotel. The hotel itself was clean and had friendly staff. This place will definitely be on my list of accommodations to consider on my next trip to Reykjavik.

This hotel is OK. The staff is lovely. Restaurant SATT is fine. My complaint it that I was told the hotel was "in town". It could be within the city limits but no way could it be considered in town. It's a 30-45 minute walk to town. The hotel does provide bus passes so that you can ride the city bus for no charge. It comes by every 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the time of day.
One more complaint, the rooms are so hot, even with the heat off and a window open, I perspired all night. The domestic airport adjoins the hotel.

Room Tip: All sides of the hotel face concrete.

We stayed here for a long weekend on 4th July. Unimpressive from the outside. Looks like a 1970`s office block. However impression changed once through the door. Spacious airy reception with plenty of seating and some interesting wooden sculptures of people and sheep. Reception very staff helpful. Room clean and warm. Shower lovely and hot, although tray could do we refurbish as the enamel was very chipped. We were facing the domestic airport but weren't bothered by noise overduly. Beds clean and comfortable. Restaurant very good. We found the breakfasts just fine. We had an evening meal here one night which was lovely. Spa was better than those in British hotels by far. It's just a shame it's use wasn't included in the price. The free bus pass was appreciated and used! Our one gripe was our excursions. The reception staff kept sending us to wait out the back for our pick up which meant (we think but couldn't prove) that we missed our pick up to the blue lagoon, so had to request another pick up which eventually arrived over an hour later than our scheduled pick up. We made sure we were out the front for the whale watching tour (again which we were directed out the back for that pick up!!!!) and lo and behold our driver arrived out the front. Hotel a pleasant walk from the pearl and about half an hour from the city centre. Excursions (when we did get picked up from the right place at the right time!) were all lovely. Lady in shop/excurion booking office also very pleasant and helpful. We'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing away from airport if don't want that view.
