Many things in Iceland are dark and or black. This otherwise very nice hotel is extremely dark. The staff was nice and the breakfast (not plentiful but) not bad at all. Rooms were very small and like the rest of the hotel dark. Location is just superb - right in the enter of town.

Room Tip: Larger rooms available for extra pay

This is a small boutique hotel that is perfectly located in the centre of Reykjavik.

The hotel is very modern in design, and the rooms equally so. We were situated on the 4th floor and although the room was quite small, it was more than adequate to contain three bags and perfect for the one night we were there. Very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had an excellent power shower.

The breakfast was included and was more than adequate, a blend of continental with bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs.

The staff, like many Icelandic people we encountered, could not have been more welcoming and friendly.

Room Tip: I was recommended the higher floors due to the noise locally but I don't think it would have mat...

The hotel is centrally located with plenty of restaurants around it. What stood out was the staff who helped us with directions, tour arrangements, taxis etc. Special mention about Clara who answered all queries and made our stay very pleasant.

Room Tip: Any room with windows to the street - weekends could be noisy though.

You can't ask for a better location in Reykjavik. This hotel is in the middle of shopping, restaurants, and landmarks like Hallgrímskirkja church and Laekjartorg Square. And much like the rest of Reykjavik, this area feels extremely safe.

The room was small by American standards, but about average for Europe. It was a little darker than average, but very clean. The hotel was well-maintained in general. Given that I visited during the summer, when it never gets dark, I would have liked curtains that could be closed completely. The TV is mounted in the middle of the windows, so there's always a gap in the curtains around that.

Free wifi and breakfast--definite bonuses. You don't find very much free stuff in Iceland!

The lack of concierge services was my only real complain. I would have liked a little more help from the staff on tour suggestions. I asked a few different people, each of whom just handed me a brochure for a Grey Lines bus tour. At a hotel of this price, I would have expected connections with some of the smaller tour companies. Similarly, they were not helpful with restaurant or shopping recommendations.

Small hotel located right off the main street in Reykjavic. The hotel is modern scandinavian in design. Rooms were nicely up to date and moderately sized. It has a cool vibe kind of feel. Breakfast was included in the room rate and consisted of a nice variety of choices. They have black out curtains to keep the room dark even when it is light outside. Our room was hot due to the heated bathroom floor which you could not control. We had a fan in our room that we turned on to cool down the temperature. The hotel is a perfect location to walk around town, shopping, restaurants. On Saturday night it was a bit loud due to the bars just at the end of the street, but we closed our window and the noise was not too bad.

Great hotel with an exceptional staff. Perfect location. Bit pricey but that's expected in Reykjavik.
Room was small but I wasn't surprised by that. Allowed an early check in since our flight had arrived from US via Toronto very early in the morning which was nice and much appreciated.

Very nice small hotel in the center of Reykjavik, close to restaurants and shops. Very good service, front desk personnel knowledgeable of tours,and restaurants. Need to be aware that if you are given a room facing the street, and on top of restaurant you will not rest well.
