“A hotel to match the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

I've never been to a hotel which is both stylish and a little quirky (in a nice way), but then I hadn't been to Reykjavik before! The hotel itself is all three buildings in the Tripadvisor picture, joined by an over-arching glass roof, so that one of the inner walls of the middle building is actually inside. Odd, but it really works. Now for the low down. Location is perfect. As many have said, you are one minute's walk away from one end of the main thoroughfare, but never part of the Saturday night party season, except for a few stray revellers having a sing as they wandered home at all hours. Reception staff were tremendously helpful and I could have stayed in the bar all night with its classy music and cosy feel. We went for a superior room and I have to say it was perfect. Breakfast was OK but with some of Reykjavik's cafe bars knocking out fantastic fare for less than the price in ridiculously atmospheric style, that's what I'd recommend. Try Cafe Laundromat 30 seconds walk away- odd name, but great place at any time of the day.

I stayed with my wife for 3 nights and found the location perfect for all aspects of sightseeing in Reykjavik. The room was a good size for a city centre hotel, tea and coffee making facilities, 2 beds pushed together was a disappointment though. The batroom was small and no shower but well kitted out with amenities and nice size bath. The happy from 6 to 7 provided 2 for 1 on the drinks, again reasonably priced for Iceland. There are a number of car parking facilities nearby however the pne down the road from the church was cheaper than anywhere I have parked in England! A very nice stay in a very cosy hotel.

Amazing location , the weekend staff was great, bathrooms lovely however watch out for the shower "screen"...as we did flood the room once. The restaurant was really good but I do hate paying for Wi-fi.

Room Tip: The doors are heavy- so it is not noisy in the hallways. We had an interior room so we didn't g...

We can't say enough about this great boutique style hotel. It was very convenient to everything in town with plenty of parking spots for our rental car. You pay daily by meters.
Rooms were small but very functional and clean. The staff was very helpful and friendlly.
We enjoyed the pub/bar every evening for happy hour(2 for 1 drinks even bottles of wine),
and again for irish coffee after dinner. Breakfasts were good. We would stay here again

I'd give 4.5 stars if I could - other than room being on the small side, it was all round very good. Happy hour in the bar (6-7pm) made the beer reasonable - 900kr for 2 pints, about a fiver, which is the normal price for a single pint.
A lot of sprawling Reykjavik has a 60s/Soviet look to it; the picturesque centre is the exception so staying there was important to us.
7-10am for breakfast so no need to be up too early, and plenty of choice of cooked/cold/cereal.
No Wi-Fi but two computers free to use downstairs.

Room Tip: Stayed on the top (4th) floor, seemed reasonably quiet.

It's all been said before: Great location, beautifully clean, particularly helpful reception staff. Good breakfast and great bar food. (Didn't have dinner in the restaurant.) Only minus point is charging for Wi-Fi connection which is irritating in tho day and age. We stayed one night in a £45.00 B&B which had free Wi-Fi!
We stayed in a "Junior Suite" which I wouldn't really recommend. They are on two levels with the bathroom and sitting area on the lower floor with the bedroom above. It seemed whatever you needed was always on the other floor! Imagine, getting up in the night for a pee and having to go downstairs! Rather badly thought out I would say. Incidentally, we were on the front of the hotel and weren't bothered in the slightest by late night revellers. Would recommend the "Icelandic Bar", 200 metres away, for great food and atmosphere.

What a great place to stay! Rooms were clean, comfortable, and well equipped with good beds, fine shower, safe, and clean environment. The location is everything one could want unless you want to hide from the city. Plenty of restaurants, scenery, and activity within easy walking distance. The front desk personnel were absolutely the best, be it simple problems or friendly chat. They could have been called travel agents since they gave accurate advice with a smile. They make one feel that they were very happy to have you in the Hotel. The breakfast buffet is excellent with the usual Western foods plus fine cheese, fruits, and pastries. We stayed in a standard double room and loved it. I would stay here again, definitely!
