Location was perfect. Central to wverything and everywhere. Ground floor room so no view and it was somewhat dated but it had big comfortable bed and nice bathroom and was very clean. Staff were helpful and friendly at all times. Breakfast had a large hot and cold buffet.

First impressions of this hotel were not good. The room looked nothing like the ones shown on the website, the room was cold with a window open that had a broken handle. We mentioned we weren't happy with the room but the response from reception was that there no other rooms available. That is of course unless we were prepared to pay more money, very poor customer service in my opinion. It was around 11pm so we decided we weren't prepared to be held to ransom and pay more so we reluctantly decided to stay in the room. We turned the heating on and managed to get the window to almost close. It was never repaired during our 4 night stay. The breakfast however was very good, the Hotel reception area and the bar area seemed ok and the location was good.

Great location, helpful staff, good breakfast, however, for anyone having an early start (before 7am) the early start breakfast is disappointing compared to the standard breakfast. Just coffee, plain croisaints and oranje juice are available. Had 2 early starts during my 3 day stay at the hotel so not much of a filling breakfast all in all.

Good location

Pros: Breakfast and location
Cons: Breakfast availability for early morning departures and clearer information regarding room views at point of booking
Location: Close to the harbour and easy walking distances to many places of interest in Reykjavik
Booked this last minute so prices were quite high. Unfortunately did not realise there was a choice of room rates. When we opened the door we were faced with a poorly maintained concrete wall as our view. As this was to celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary we asked if we could change rooms...we would have had to upgrade and pay extra. The location is good, close to the harbour. The airport transfer buses and excursions do not drop off/pick up directly at hotel but only couple of minutes walk to bus stop 4. There is no restaurant at this hotel and snack are limited. The breakfast was very good - great selection of hot/cold buffet, fruit, cereals, hot porridge, breads, and lovely oat cakes. We were extremely disappointed therefore when our early morning departure breakfast was literally just a bowl of plain croissants on the bar . We had paid the same rate for our last day, and thought the hotel should have made much more effort with this.

Excllent value for money

The location of this hotel is great. right on the main square, with easy access to all bars and restaurants, close to the marina, and main shopping streets. The hotel its self is very modern, clean and tidy. We were given a room on the 8th (top) floor overlooking the square, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony. Good selection at breakfast, both hot and cold. Absolutley nothing to mark the hotel down on, especially for the price.

Good Value for money hotel

Our room was clean and comfortable. However, the view from our window has to be the worst view we've every had....a brick wall! The breakfast was much choice! Very impressive. It was great to have the happy hour at the bar...very much appreciated. Unfortunate that there are no rooms allowing smoking. The early bird breakfast was a little minimal. Just croissants, hot drink and orange. Would be nice to have a little jam to go with the croissant and some plates?! The location was absolutely excellent and, therefore, we think the hotel was very good value for money.

Excellent location and value for money

Everyone says how expensive it is to stay in Reykjavit. Well that might be the case but we found this hotel excellent value for money. The hotel was a little shabby in places or partly (badly!) renovated, but ignore that. It was clean; the staff were friendly and welcoming; the location was perfect; and plenty to eat for breakfast (try the lovely walnut bread!). I'd stay in this hotel again if I was fortunate enough to return to Reykjavit. If you are thinking of going to Iceland, don't think - do! It was in my top 10 of holidays.
