Things got a little difficult when we had to book 4 rooms in a hotel in Reykjavik and we ended up in this hotel - booking rooms as well as 1 of their apartment.
I stayed in the apartment. It actually looks how it is advertised in the website. Yet there are a bunch of issues, some rather minor like :
It's abt 300 meters from the hotel, with the breakfast served in the hotel, the double bed is 1401cm wide at most, which is hardly enough as a single bed - and happily I was sleeping alone on it. There is only 1 bathroom, as well as 1 toilet, in the same room to make matters worse. Quite inconvenient for 2 bedrooms apartments.
Than there are more serious issues - my room was on the 1st floor close to street level and very noisy, first night I heard music almost all night and second night could hear the people talking in the street even when they walked by - strange and very unpleasant. To make matters worse the room was *very* hot, and opening the window just made the noise worse. Had a terrible sleep during my stay there.
Also Breakfast was poor with no service whatsoever, there was 2 small dry croissant on the buffet when we arrived the first day, none on the second. Nobody at the bar and the coffee machine not started yet, hence even if we wanted to pay for it , there was no way to get an espresso.
As of driving and parking around the apartment, the building is in the narrowest part of a narrow downtown street, and it far less than convenient. From far, the worst times of an otherwise wonderful icelandic visit were linked to this hotel.
Note as well that my friends stayed in a standard room inside the hotel and they were satisfied.
