Booked our final night in iceland here as a splurge after a week of camper van living. Was recommended here from a friend. Quite pricey, maybe $300usd, but thought a nice last night was worth it. We got one of the rooms overlooking the marina with a little balcony. The rooms are quite small, to be expected, but barely enough room to move around and sort our luggage. It is very cute, nicely decorated, and the view over the harbor is excellent.
A few things: literally right next door on the west side of the hotel is a giant construction site, and the banging of rock digging was awful. As we were not spending any time in the room it was ok, but if you are there more than one night or want to spend any time at all between 11-7 make sure you get a room as far away from that side as possible.
Also, the bathroom is cute but poorly designed. It is just a shower stall with a toilet and sink. They should have a little lip to keep the shower water from going all over the floor. And a little shelf inside the shower would be so easy and so helpful to place your shampoo etc while you are in there.
The bed was very comfortable, but there were two twin sized blankets instead of one that covers the whole bed. Not great for snuggling under the cover.
The best part of this hotel is the downstairs main floor which is beautiful and has several sitting areas.
We heard the restaurant is quite good but the kitchen closes at 10pm and we were out on a whale watching your until past 10.
Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is great, but beware the ongoing construction and maybe best to stay elsewhere and go for dinner or a drink instead.
