This "hotel" is actually an organisation of different properties around Reykjavik town centre. So there is no easy way to know where you will actually be staying once you have made your booking. There is a central reception in the "hotel" building (currently still being built) where you will be either met by staff, or by a telephone. When you call them to check-in you will find out where you are staying. If it is in one of the other properties, a staff member will come and pick you up to drive you to your room/appartment. So the initial experience is little unexpected for some.
The rooms are generally all situated along Laugavegur - the main shopping street in town. So the location is good. (Watch out if you have rented a car - parking is very limited). The quality of the different appartments also seems to be very good (those which are built anyway). The appartments have basic kitchen facilities, and the rooms are nicely furnished.
The one thing that this concept suffers from is that the service is all done via telephone. There are very few staff (one or two people) and they are generally only contactable via telephone. So a problem with the room facilities can (and did) take a while (days) to resolve. Those staff that are there are friendly and helpful - but it's always going to be difficult reacting via telephone!
Great for independent guests, and independent travellers!!
