I used a website to book this hotel. After it was booked, I read the reviews on here and I was leery about staying at this place. The place was ok. I agree with one of the people here that said its “One step above a hostel”. I do not think is a three start hotel. Its more like a...

Great location near the old harbour, on a quiet road, Basic twin room, the sulphur smell from the hot tap is normal. Curtains could have been better as near 24hr daylight in June. Reception helpful and will book tours, so no need to book from home. Breakfast from 8am; watch out because tours may pick-up earlier (must annoy many guests)....

Close to downtown. Each room has its own bathroom. Nice basic breakfast included. Depended on who was at the front desk as to how we were treated. Had to request towel change, made our own beds. We will choose someplace else on our next visit.

Upon arriving in the early evening at the hotel, the receptionist could not have been less interested in us, and more or less threw us the keys, and then informed us that the lift didn't work. Not the best first impression! The room was small and very basic and the sheets on the bed were full of holes. The bathroom...

Stayed there for a week. Great location, really close to city centre. Reception staff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast is very basic but tasty. Room was clean. Small bathroom with weird shower and no ventilaton but wasn't a huge issue. Generally hotel does the job if you are there to visit Iceland. Will stay there again if come back...

The hotel itself is nothing fancy, but the beds are comfortable enough and it is clean. Siggi, who is downstairs most nights, is excellent and particularly helpful. The only problem I have with the hotel is this: breakfast is generally included, however, it runs from 8-10, and only cereal is available before that. Most tour companies will pick you up...

Spartan, but very clean. Easy parking right in front of hotel. Location is within walking distance of all downtown sights. Simple, but good breakfast included. Check on the church, but don't feel obligated to buy elevator ticket (No one checks you!) Dine at Cafe Loki for Icelandic dishes at reasonable prices.
