  • Group of friends
    9.6

    great value for money, decent breakfast, friendly staff, right next to city center

    room very basic but clean

  • Single
    5.4

    Close to wharf/harbour and city centre

    Bathroom was quite inadequate in that the shower was not separated from the toilet. Did not get the small double as booked but got a twin.

  • Couple
    7.8

    The hotel is in a great location-right in the center of Reykjavik but on a quit street. Breakfast was very nice everyday. Clean, nice rooms.

    Bathroom was very small and pretty much the whole bathroom gets wet when you take a shower.

  • Single
    7.8

    The location was great, and it had a lift which was wonderful with heavy luggage.

  • Single
    8.2

    The location is excellent and the staff really cares. The breakfast is very good and well worth it given the modest room price. The small elevator / lift is quaint and yet adequate for handling luggage.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Delicious breakfast, some of staff was very helpful and friendly, very close to downtown. Perfect location.

    One of staff was not very friendly but did not cause any problems.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Close to everything in town, hotel staff was wonderful.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Hotel staff extremely helpful

    Very small room and very poor facilities in the room

  • Single
    4.6

    Good location close to the city centre, wireless internet open and free of charge.

    Very basic room, dirty blanket (although it was changed in a minute), broken shower, small curtain (annoying when 24h daylight), simple breakfast.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    affordable downtown location, clean and safe feeling, nothing fancy, simply a small basic room with decent functioning wifi internet access.

  • Single
    6.2

    Convenient location and price (for Iceland). Fairly quiet despite being there during Independence Day celebrations. Breakfast was adequate.

    The receptionist seemed to think it was general practice to charge the customer when they arrived rather than on departure.

  • Couple
    6.2

    Several receptionists are kind.

    The water smells bad. The quotation on Booking is in Euro, but I need to pay in isk by credit card in the very bad currency which the hotel created for their benefit.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The hotel is conveniently located on a side street, in the center of town, and is close to shopping streets and the harbor.

    Our "twin room" was small and crammed with large furniture. No space for two adults with little luggage to move or get comfortable. Bathroom and shower combined in tiny space. No shelf or a hook to hang anything. Hotel bills itself a "three stars" property (sign posted at entrance). One star would be more appropriate.

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    The front desk was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate, but no frills.

    The rooms are spartan, a small bed a TV and a bathroom. Rooms were pretty noisy so bring a pair of ear plugs. You can each door open and close along with the elevator.

  • Single
    6.2

    Friendly atmosphere at breakfast, other guests were cheerful

    Quite a few things weren't working, all were fixed but when I mentioned that the cistern on the toilet didn't work I was told that there wasn't much that could be done, but it was annoying and really annoyed another guest when I was out and it kept filling up for hours....
