We stayed here for a long weekend (Sat-Tues) last week. The hotel is right in the centre of the oldest part of Reykjavik and so this puts it in easy walking distance of most of what the city has to offer. Also, it is served by all the local travel firms so pick-ups for most trips is right outside the front door.
The staff were efficient and helpful whenever we had any questions and were great when our trips were cancelled (due to atrocious weather) and sorted out all our refunds.
Our room was small as was the bathroom and shower. But they were very clean and modern-ish. The beds where comfy, clean and warm with dual quilts (as I have had in some German hotels). The room (426) was on the 4th floor and despite the height and double glazing we still heard the traffic and pedestrian noise at night. Nothing too bad, but if you’re a light sleeper. Request a room away from the road.
The breakfasts were typical continental fayre so nothing too exciting (I have Coeliac Disease but always found something to eat without having to ask the staff 1st!) but always something hot before venturing out on the cold mornings.
Overall the hotel is compact and business like and offers a great location from which to explore Reykjavik. I will use it again when we re-visit Iceland.
