It was really nice to stay at the Kvosin, a small boutique hotel that may be best described as the opposite of institutional. Our room was large and comfortable, which was great to come back to after the daily touring in Iceland. The location was perfect; everything is in easy walking distance, including Reykjavik's best restaurants. The staff was friendly and helped us with arrangements. It was all very informal. We appreciated the free breakfast, although the fixed menu got repetitive after a few days. This hotel does not have institutional hotel type service, which was just what we wanted. The reviewers who criticized the hotel for this reason should stay elsewhere; it's not for them. Travelers must be aware of one thing-the Kvosin is not easy to find. Maps indicate it is on the central square, but in fact it is on an adjacent street behind the church. Since the hotel is new, people on the street don't know it and can't help you find it.
