Good Hotel

Pros: For us, the location and the included breakfast were the main attractions of this hotel.
Cons: Perhaps a small evening menu of bar meals.
Location: The location is close to the shopping area and short walk to most of the attractions of Reykjavik.
We were given lovely family rooms at the front of the hotel with a fantastic view. The rooms were very clean and warm. The beds comfortable with warm duvets. The shower was excellent with plentiful hot water. Breakfast was good with a wide selection to choose from. We did not need much help from the staff but they were always there and ready to help if needed. We were happy with the hotel location as it was a short walk to the main shopping area. I would be happy to recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in an ideal location. Very close to the main shopping street and shore walk. Next door to a supermarket too. Buses will pick up and drop off from this hotel unlike others that you need to go to a bus stop. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast will not disappoint, everything you could want was there. I hope to return to Reykjavik and will definitely want to stay here again.

Good central location

I chose this hotel as it was cheaper than others (Iceland is crazy expensive as is!) and seemed to have good reviews. It's location is great, a 3 min walk to centre and near the sea. Interiors are very 70s and basic and I suspect the sheets/blankets were not changed from the previous guest. If you expect luxury - no-no. But if you want middle of the road, no frills, it's ideal. Breakfast was very good and there are several pubs nearby in case you can't sleep due to worrying about what the previous guests did between the sheets you're now sleeping in!

First time visit to iceland

Group of 4 including my son and grandson aged 5. Hired 4x4 free parking at the hotel. We all had a fabulous time. One bitter cold day which we spent in whale museum (full scale models) and volcano exhibition, but sunshine every day. Would love to go back and do the ring road. Iceland is vast. In a week we only explored the south west. Hotel was clean and tidy. Reception 24 hours and very friendly and relaxed. Breakfast was fabulous. Wish we had room with a better view as we were there for the week. We had 2 rooms opposite each other. I did ask in an email for a view. Would definitely stay in foss hotel chain again.

Good Value, Great Location

This hotel is right where we wanted it. Perfect base for our Icelandic adventure. The breakfast buffet each morning set us up for the day and we made sure we had our fill which kept us going till lunch time. The staff were very friendly and helped us when we needed to book our trip to the Blue Lagoon and there was no issues when we told them we wanted to go in the next 2 hours!
