“Sweet spot”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Stayed here after piloting our own airplane from the states - ready for some rest but anxious to explore a bit during our short stopover. Such a sweet hotel - clean, modern rooms that are great for those of us who want to eat out, but also nice with a little kitchenette for those who like to have some food in the room. Varty and Gunnar at reception couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.. Breakfast in adjoining little restaurant was fabulous and convenient. We stayed at the Borg last visit, which was fine for the experience - but this cozy, quiet spot was our favorite. ( I'm noting good for airport access since we were at BIRK, not Kef-but any downtown hotel is equally convenient to the big airport).

Room Tip: We were in a larger room, 206, which had the bedroom facing inner courtyard, so it was nice and quie...

Stayed for a couple of romantic nights in November with my better half and was absolutely delighted. The penthouse suite is quite possibly the nicest hotel room in the entire city, with great views over to Austurvollur square and the parliament building. Right smack in the center of the city but still quiet and a little ways out of the party scene, perfect location. Very friendly staff and great breakfast at Bergson, not to mention the great wine selection at the in house wine bar. Perfect

Room Tip: The top floor for sure

Hotel is a great boutique type hotel (non-chain) with awesome rooms that feel like your staying in your own apartment. Staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and pretty much booked all my activities. Hotel comes with breakfast next door which is at a restaurant and delicious! Located right in downtown and walkable to any Reykjavik attraction and is on the list for excursion pickups as well. Doesn't get better.

This is a great boutique hotel they front desk staff Sergei Hilda and Gunnar were very accomodating professional and always willing to help with anything Gunnar even fixed my nexpresso machine.
If your room faces the street bring earplugs! Very noisy even on weeknights. The blackout blinds do a good job in this timeof endless sun I switched rooms after one night and had a large deluxe room that was very dark and quiet but it was expensive to do so.
There is not a bar attached to the hotel the spot is now vacant. There are plenty of pubs and bars a block away. The city center is 3 blocks away as is the bus station very convenient location.
Breakfast is a quaint French style bistro with great options green drinks chia pudding cold plates or eggs. And the croissants are baked in house wonderful way to start the day
The beds and bedding are very good and the warming rack for towels is great to beat the chill. I would definitely stay here again
