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.
