“Minimalistic in every way”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Stayed here for my last night in Reykjavik and was looking for a cheap place to stay. Arrived at the door and realized how it was possible these guys were able to make a profit. First off, this review isn't meant to be negatively skewed, just my curiousity at their business model.

The hotel is run completely off-site, meaning there is no receptionist but rather a phone that you dial where someone will pick up on the other end and help you with any concerns. There is a safe with all the keys of whoever is checking in on the current day and you find your way to the room yourself. Everything is meant to be self-sufficient.

The living space is quite nice and is decorated with a minimalist hand--ie straight lines, clean surfaces, no frou frou. They provide you with a kitchen and adequate space to live in. I was in the room for 3 (1 king, 1 sofabed) and found the room decently large.

Check in was to be exactly at 3pm and they were strict about this. You can opt to leave any luggage you have in the lobby, which can be a little unnerving considering there is no one to keep an eye on it.

Just spent a long weekend in Reykjavik, and this apartment really made it the perfect weekend!
The apartment is well equipped with everything needed to cook your own meals, but is also perfectly located for easy access to the best shopping streets and restaurants in town.
The apartment is beautifully and tastefully decorated, and was very clean. The staff in the hotel are also friendly and helpful.
It is also not far from the tourist office to book any trips or excusions.
Also excellent value for money - couldn't believe the deal we got through booking.com.
Fantastic! Thank you!

The OK Hotel is placed at perfect location, although the main things in Reykjavik are within a few kilometers, easily accessible on foot. To meet Iceland outside of Reykjavik, one need a serious means of transportation; you may rent a car, pay some Holiday Packages, or have friend/cousin who is ready to borrow your his/her car.
OK Hotel is essence of cosy Scandinavian minimalism, with some very nice interior interventions. Room where I was placed, had the "Mona Lisa" theme. Cool kitchenette, comfortable beds with Ikea linen, wifi free... Due cost cutting , the reception does not exist, it is necessary to call a certain number and wait for till you get a room key. It is necessary to inform the hotel staff about late check in. Check out, if you have paid in advance - no problem, just leave the key to the earlier agreed place.

Room Tip: ask for rooms on the other side of the main street

Centrally located on the main street of Reyjkavik with access to lots of restaurants. Building is new and rooms are whimsically decorated.(Ours had a bird theme) We had a Studio Apartment which had a nicely furnished kitchen area and a seating area with a reading lamp. We also had rooftop access to a balcony which was great fun for wine at end of day. Room was very clean and quiet. Parking could be an issue due to location. Best of all, price was very fair.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, get an apartment or room with access to the balcony.

These are funky-chic little studios with kitchenettes, for a lot less than any other hotel of this quality. And, the location is great, right on the main street. My studio had a small couch, arm chair, full size bed and a coffee maker, complete with coffee to put in it! What more could you ask for?

The only problem is that management is not on-site and don't really know what they are doing. A lot of weird misunderstandings. I had to take something from someone's room, and was told that I could not close his door. It stayed open another 8 hours until he got back that night..???

Also, word of warning, if you come in on the early fight, you probably won't be able to get into your room until after 3pm, so plan accordingly.

You can stay even with your family, nice and comfortable rooms, small but useful kitchen. There is everything in the kitchen to have breakfast or dinner in the room. The hotel is on the main street of reyjkavik.

Big rooms, perfect for a couple or a family with two children, with a small but complete kitchen, nice decoration, and absolutely clean! And in the main street of Reykjavik. You can participate in the runtur, or just go to see it, but there is no noise inside. All is new and nice.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect, but the others seeams to be perfect too!
