You will be near shopping and restaurants. Bus stop number 10 is around the corner. Grey line and many of the other bus tour companies pick up next to the Hotel. The breakfast buffet on the first floor has a variety of tasty foods to get you started in the morning.

Keep in mind you will be sharing a restroom. There are sinks in the room. We stayed in room 418 which did not have any windows. The plus of this is that the light from the midnight sun will not disturb you at night. If you like having a street view, request a different room with a view. When you arrive, you will be aware of the sulfur in the water. The decor is drab and sparse. The TV in room 418 was new, but unplugged and not pre programmed. Channels had not been set up yet. Beds are comfortable. Staff is very helpful and will assist you in making reservations for activities during your stay.

We paid about Euro 180 per night/per room (breakfast included). This is much too much for the quality one gets. This place needs a major overhaul. Will never go there again. For this price we had to share bathroom with other guests on our floor. So at best this is a hostrl ++ place.

For people from many countries, the high prices in Iceland are a shock to the system and it seems unbelievable that it can cost $200 for a hotel room in which you have to share a bathroom down the hall with other guests. BUT... that's reality and you have to typically pay $300-500 to get an ensuite bath in this country--no way around it for the most part. Having said that... and after travelling around the whole island, I can say that 4th Floor hotel is a pretty good value for what you get when it comes to lodging in Reykjavik. First, the location is fantastic. It's easy to get in and out of with a rental car, and there is free parking in the garage below the hotel. There's even a City Cars Rental office catty-corner across the street if you decide to take the bus from the airport to the hotel and save a few dollars on the car rental as car rentals are more expensive from the airport. Second, you can easily walk down the main commercial street to the heart of historic Reykjavik from this hotel, and there is a convenience store right across the street (as well as the fascinating Penis Museum! True, fun fact! LOL) Third, when it comes time to driving in and out of Reykjavik, this hotel is very well located for ease of access to the most important streets. As to the hotel itself, the breakfast (included) is plentiful and pretty decent, the WiFi was great, there was an elevator, and the beds were very comfortable. As far as the rooms go, they are a bit hit or miss. I spent 3 nights in an interior room with no windows, which was actually just fine because you could actually sleep given the 24-hour daylight in June. There was a fan in the room to keep the air moving, as well as a little refrigerator and a sink. Using the shared baths wasn't a big deal after all (I had been nervous about this), but please know that some of the bathrooms are better than others. For example, the bathroom outside room 420 was pretty awful and the carpet in the hallway was wet for a couple of days from what had clearly been some sort of overflow from the shower. I ended up using the bathroom at the opposite end of the floor and it was just fine. The 4th night we were here, we got upgraded to a suite (room 407), which was spectacular and had an ensuite bath. There were sweeping curved windows overlooking the city and it was awesome... BUT... the black-out curtains were a bit sparse and the room never got dark, so be sure to bring eye covers to sleep. WARNING: They tried to put us in a room on the first floor that is actually an active emergency exit and a former commercial storefront with glass windows from floor to ceiling. This room should not be in their inventory and I refused to stay in it because it is simply not acceptable. They seemed to agree and upgraded us to the aforementioned suite... so word to the wise, do not accept this room if they assign it to you. Other than this. the staff were very friendly, hospitable, helpful and welcoming -- particularly Evar and Yolanda. All in all, this hotel has some ups and downs, and is fine if you don't want to pay through the nose with other hotels and want a great location.

Room Tip: Do NOT accept the room on the 1st floor which is an active emergency exit!!!

This is an overpriced hotel, I am afraid. Let me start we the positive: Very good location, good beds, very nice and rich buffet breakfast, free parking. However, there are more negatives: Public areas and rooms really needs some work as their appearance is poor, the place is not really clean, and the same goes for the shared bathrooms. TV and hairdryer in our room were broken and despite several requests to repair nothing happened. Staff clearly needs some training in communication. I am sure Reykjavik offers better value for money hotels.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms with shared bathrooms

We booked this place for three days in the city. The hotel is small, nasty, curtains dirty, balcony door doesn’t lock and another room is sharing the same balcony, floor dirty, nasty smell. Worth $250 per night ever spend. I think I’d feel more comfortable in a car then this dump. It’s like a hostel not a $250 per night room! Spend the extra money this hotel is a dump.
