We spent hours tracking down the right place to stay and thankfully our research was spot on! This delightful hotel is in the heart of the city opposite the Cathedral (more a village church) and next door to the Parliament (more a well designed town hall). We could walk everywhere. The rooms are quite small but well equipped the only quibble being the storage space but hey you couldn't have everything. The staff are absolutely brilliant and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is in the café next door which hums from locals meeting for breakfast. Clearly they have addressed previous comments about how much food there is if you turn up late by actually plating a set cold meal which is advertised in your bedroom and then offering a choice of two hot items from an imaginative list. We stayed Sunday to Thursday so missing any of the downtown noise that apparently is a feature of the week-end but this hotel, the city and the country was more than we ever thought it could be.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kvosin is located in the heart of Reykjavík. And by heart, I mean heart, not kidney, spleen or thyroid. In less then three minutes walking distance are cafés, bars, clubs, museums, Harpa (concerts and conventions), the mayor, ducks and politicians working in the Icelandic parliament next door (nevermind).Let's see. I've got Normal rooms, Bigger rooms, Biggest rooms and Larger than life rooms but only one Tiny room. I'm inspired by my experience as a traveller: I want a good bed, I want to cook, I want to watch big TV, I want to bring my friends or kids, I want space and I want fun. So, here you are. ... more less
