“Perfect for a short break”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Difficult to fault this hotel. Friendly and efficient check in, great room, excellent breakfast choice and the location couldn't be better, close to shops and attractions and jolly handy to pop back for a power nap or change of clothes. Excursions will pick up from the hotel along with airport drop off/pick ups which is jolly handy if it's blowing a blizzard as we experienced. The Happy Hour between 5 and 7 was welcome and the lobby is a great place to relax with a nice cold pint of local beer and chat with fellow travellers.

Recently returned from a fantastic 4 night stay at this hotel as part of a Secret Escapes package deal that included flights, transfers and 2 trips. The hotel is small but perfectly located with lovely décor, and very pleasant staff. They upgraded us to a Luxury Suite which was very nice indeed. The spa is small but very pleasant and perfectly adequate. The included breakfast was exceptional and way better than we expected. The only knock on the hotel was it's location meant we were right in the middle of the 'Runtur' on Friday and Saturday nights so lots of whooping from hammered revellers outside! Would definitely stay here again though.

Room Tip: Email in advance and ask for an upgrade. They promptly replied saying they would try and help me and...

Good location close to the centre of Reykjavik. Although it doesn't look much from outside, it has modern, attractive common areas and rooms. As in many modern styles in my experience, there is a small degree of style over function. The shower cubicle is a little small for a rain shower head, and it was not until the second day that we discovered that the lighting was not totally inadequate, that the light switches were actually dimmers, you have to press and hold to achieve a normal level of lighting.

The night life in Reykjavik is buzzing, with many a hen and stag party (Do these people know how expensive drink is here before they book???). Unfortunately the hotel is located near a night club, which, if you are at the front of the hotel, you can hear until 4 in the morning.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are better for night life lovers

We stayed at this hotel as part of a secret escapes package and it was better than I'd expected. The hotel is right in the centre of town and the interior is beautifully decorated, minimalist but artistic. There was lots of novel features, sculptures, light fittings etc. The staff were very friendly and happy to help with bookings and advice. They also do a very reasonable happy hour from 17:00 - 19:00. The rooms were also modern and attractive, if a little small. For a few nights it was the perfect respite.

Stayed here with my partner last week. We booked with Secret Escapes and had already seen photos of the inside which was good as the outside conveys nothing of the interior!
Our room was lovely, we were upgraded to a deluxe room and the bathroom was stunning with a bathtub to die for!
Breakfast was plentiful and tasty with plenty warm fresh rolls, cereals, cold meats and cheeses and cooked sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes.
Our only complaint would be about the spa area. There was a small shallow pool which was very warm, the surrounds were relaxing with subdued lighting etc but the steam room was not in operation and the massage room was empty so it looked like that was also not available.
I was a little disappointed with that but everything else was great and we would definitely return. :)

We booked a short break in Reykjavik and used this hotel. It is very contempory in style and located within walking distance of everything in the center of Reykjavic. All the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfasts were tremendous with choice of fish, cooked bacon and eggs and continental from a self service buffet. They do not do evening meals but there are some tremendous places to eat close by. The rooms were comfortable with all that you need. Tucked down a side street made it very quiet. With the gym and heated spa there was everything required for a relaxing stay.

We stayed here Oct 2013 for our 2nd year anniversary and had a fantastic stay. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Its in a great location, right in the centre of Reykjavik. The rooms are beautifully designed and really clean. The breakfast each morning was also very nice and offered a good selection.
